Investing in property for the first time can be a really daunting task. You need to gather a lot of data and conduct thorough research before considering a purchase. You can take the help of a real estate agent who can narrow down the choices and make the process quicker. However, it is always better to choose your property independently because there is no pressure to buy from any side. You can take your time and look at multiple options before settling for the one which suits your requirements best.
Considerations When Picking A Property
Here are some points that you should consider in order to get hold of a property which generates high rent:
According to the 2021 Census, 68.3% of residential properties in Albany are occupied by families. This shows that there is a high demand for family-friendly homes. You can keep this point in mind and opt for a property which can be converted into single-family units. Targeting families can help you to procure a tenant faster than targeting people who live alone in this case. It can also fetch a higher rent because of the constant demand.
You should invest in an area where new development projects are underway or in the pipeline. These can be condos, shopping precincts or business hubs. Such areas are likely to attract tenants because of the amenities being offered and the scope for growth. Even if you need to pay a higher price for the property, it may still be a good investment based on the rent you are able to charge, as well as the increased amount of prospective tenants within these areas.
In order to get a high rent for your property, you need to know the amount that you are going to lose in the form of taxes. It is not a bad idea to purchase in an area where the property tax is high if the neighborhood consists of families. This is due to the fact you will be able to find long-term tenants in such areas who can afford to pay the rent. In fact, the property tax is usually high in areas which attract high-income families. You can make decent returns on your investment even after paying the tax for a property in these areas.
