Most every condo project has restrictions on the number of units that can be rented at any given time. If you are considering purchasing a condo as a rental property, you would need to look into your ability to rent the unit. Many projects have waiting lists for owners wanting to rent out their units.

In rare occassions you can find a rental in the Buckhead area, but it is an even better deal to purchase now as a result of the market. Some of the penthouses are offering incredible deals that can potentially help put you ahead financially in a few years. Buy into a 50% equity position to cash in on in the future. Remarkable deals for smart buyers. If possible, try to lock into a lease purchase to lock in a low sales price if you know your credit is workable and months from getting in shape or you just need to save funds for earnest money or a down payment. Nonetheless, there are rarer situations for owner financing. Nonetheless, rentals are an option. I hope this helps. Feel free to call me.

Pretty much can ditto what the others have said. But, if you don't own and are looking to buy, you would want to look for a building that still has leasing permits available. An agent can assist you with this. As for leasing your condo, the rental market has been a bit strange this year. It seems that potential renters are in no rush to make a decision, and it's taken longer to secure tenants than in the past. Who knew?

Most of the time no, it's not easy for a landlord to tender a condo rental, due to HOA rules. All of the answers agree, so far.
Are we answering your relatively easy question, or like David said, are we missing details?

What Rodney said about condo rental restrictions is key. That is a huge problem right now. People dont want to take a loss on selling their devalued condo, so they try to rent. Come to find out the building has maxed out its total rental numbers. You can get a amazing price on a condo right now, but you better want to live in it, because you sure cannot rent it.

That's a loaded question. For how much? In what building? does your location allow renters and if so, what percentage of renters to owners? is that percentage maxed out and how long is the waiting list for owners to rent? No enough information to answer your question. If you would like a detailed answer give me a call or email with specifics as to what you have to offer: size, location, br's. I would let you know what the market will bring and what asking rent price that would get you a quicker renter, assuming time is of the essence. Also, are you looking for property management services? We offer that if you were interested. Look forward to hearing more details from you.
