The Problem with Bangor House Flipping

A Couple Renovating a Kitchen in their Bangor Rental PropertyFlipping houses can be a significant way to generate income, but one of the actualities is that the income earned from house flipping is not very consistent. Flipping houses is a high-risk investment strategy with excellent possibilities but a lot of possible dangers. Investors would have to wait for months or sometimes years to notice a return from a single flip. To ease these risks and generate a consistent income stream, why not supplement your flips with one or more rental homes? Rental properties are one of the most stable and accessible investment options, providing investors with long-term growth rarely matched by stocks or other retirement products.

The popularity of the reality television show about house flipping has built somewhat of an unrealistic perspective on precisely what flipping houses involve. Although it is feasible to purchase, remodel, and re-sell a residential property quickly and profitably, usually there are hardships or sudden hindrances that should be resolved along the way.

For instance, homes that are under construction are, for the most part, targeted by thieves and vandals over other buildings. These are crimes that could potentially end in a catastrophe. Bad weather, burst pipes, and any number of other unforeseen events could also lead to costly fixes that were not incorporated in the original budget. Because of that, house flippers have to be ready, not only for when things go great, but also for when something may fail.

As far as flipping houses is concerned, even a best-case scenario flip includes a lot of effort that would take months. The period of time that flipping a house takes can be vast, from discovering a property to arranging financing, closing, remodeling, and finally listing the property for sale. During this whole period – regardless of how long it may take – the property is not generating an income, because the only return an investor realizes from a flip comes after the property has sold. Certain investors have the capability to manage multiple house flips in a single year, expecting to increase frequency and consistency of income. But more frequently, houses are flipped one at a time, making it arduous to predict when that investment will ultimately pay off.

Because of that, house flippers will greatly benefit from having more than one revenue stream. There are many opportunities in the real estate industry, but the one that gives the steadiest income opportunities are residential rental properties. Buying and renovating rental homes is a procedure like flipping houses, but there are some notable advantages. When buying a home to use as a rental, investors can enlist the help of a quality property management company to do a lot of the heavy lifting for them.
