Good Afternoon
First off not everything in Southlake is $500,000 that is a bit of hyperbole. Second, Southlake is a very desirable area for many reasons, many of which I am sure that you already know. The rental market is very good in the area. What is your experience level with investment property, are you a seasoned pro or are you just getting started? If you are experienced, then you need to find the right home and you are off to the races. If you are new at this, as I recommend that you take a trip to your local bookstore and look for a book named "Hold" This book will give you a great amount of insight about purchasing and holding rental property. Rental property is great and can provide a wonderful stream of income if you think about it strategically. If you have additional questions or if I can be of any assistance please feel free to contact me directly.

I think the trick here is finding the right property at the right price that will rent at the right price to ensure great returns.
It all depends on your business model.
Most investors like lower priced that is the trick in Southlake....where I often tell customers it takes $500,000 to get started in Southlake.
Houses do rent all year long...people move all the time....but my thought is that for most rental housing Southlake is very school for most investors the model of buy and hold at $500,000 and above for a single family home, could mean sitting on it for 3-4-5 months vacant. That's a lot of mortgage to pay....without income.

Here is a link to some of the lower priced homes in Southlake.…

Feel free to call me and let's talk about your strategy and see what works.

There are homes that need renovations as well as plenty of move in ready properties in Southlake. If you have the financial means to purchase real estate for an investment portfolio your creating or adding to Southlake is a great idea. For more information contact me through Trulia or

I would say it is good. I'd be happy to send you a CMA so you can see the homes and how much they are renting for. There aren't that many houses for rent so it increases the demand. Hope to hear from you.
