Hi Cherri,

You're not delusional by any means. In this market, homes are so devalued, they are below replacement cost and rental cost. So you could definitely make money, in most situations, by buying a house a renting it out.

I guess the question I would ask is why would you pass up the opportunity to buy and pay lower mortgage payments than rent? Why would you buy now and rent it out for positive cash flow only to buy later down the road with who knows what prices and interest rate?

There are more questions to think through...

It depends on the property, its location, what you pay for it and your interest rate..... If you want to contact me, I will be glad to discuss what property you are looking for....
