  1. I’ve been looking at properties online. There are quite a few that a couple, if they are handy and industrious, could get a real bargain. So many people either can’t, or don’t want to, do work to make the house nice. Many flippers are buying houses to fix up and making a tidy profit. The ones who really do well at that have a lot of equipment and know what they are doing.

    1. I agree, they do know what they are doing. One of my favorite TV shows is the show with Johanna and Chip Gaines who do house flipping, but they do it in such an awesome way. I’m always inspired by them. That would be my dream job!

  2. A friend of mine (who recently got married) is actually a prospective real estate buyer at the moment. Her and her husband have been spending moths researching properties online. It’s such a huge decision so research is definitely huge <3

    1. Yeah it definitely needs to be researched before jumping in. I think you have to really know what you are doing and possibly be willing to accept some losses at the same time. I do think it would be awesome to have a side income like that.

  3. I lvoe checking out properties online. It’s my version of real estate window shopping. One day I will purchase my dream home and hoepfully some investment property too.

  4. Great tips. We did a lot of research and looking online when we bought our home. I think i started six months before actually took any real steps.

  5. I have started looking around on the Internet for an investment property. I have owned some before and it can be a little bit stressful for me. I tend to worry a lot about things going wrong so having a property manager has helped me in the past.

  6. The video is so helpful even for those who still haven’t plan on buying one for investment but I learn a lot from it. Thank you for sharing this 🙂

  7. These are great tips for buying an investment property. I love looking at properties online in different cities, but I doubt I will be buying anything soon!

  8. We would love to buy some investment property but the idea of not seeing it in person is scary to me. I would wonder about scams. How safe is this??

  9. We were thinking of moving and buying a home in the area we were moving too & that was the first time I seen a couple of those videos. I thought it was really cool!! That way you can visit without traveling, wasting gas, time, and disturbing the present family who lives there!! The video helped us decide if we wanted to investigate further into purchasing that home or not.

  10. BB’s family has apt buildings, so investment properties are nothing new. Now, having said that, the part that IS new is the amount of research one can do BEFORE buying. Wonderful post to share for those interested in investment properties. BB2U
