Too Long on the Market?

If the asking price is too high Houston property is going to sit on the market. Consider this a red flag that the seller has set a wishful asking price that may sound great to them, but the value just isn’t there which makes it a bad investment

Show Me the Records!

No facts? Anyone can say that a property has been bringing in great earnings, the data to provide backup for the numbers in black and white, is key to even consider a deal. If a seller doesn’t have long term data for the property in hand, tell them to bring it to the bargaining table or just walk away from what is likely to be a very bad investment indeed. The bottom line is, investing without knowing the numbers is highly risky. You’ll want to have enough familiarity with the market to recognize numbers that seem out of line with the current trends.

Location?

You certainly do not want to end up sitting on a property because you weren’t aware it was located in an area with a bad reputation. You’ll want to be certain you’ve done plenty of research on Houston investment real estate market areas. Nor do you want to go through all of the footwork, only to find you’ve taken on all of the costs and risks involved with a property in these locations. Nor do you wish to lose profits by buying a highly overpriced property for the local area market; keeping actively involved and aware of current trends is central to your investment success. You’ll want to consider spreading your wealth in areas that are well established and successful. It is also never a bad idea to look forward when investing, so scrutinize the areas with data that are proving themselves to be up and coming in the market as well.

Upkeep

It’s a lemon! If a property in Houston has been sitting on the market for a long time period, you’ll need to investigate the cause. Now, there is likely a reason that wise investors have passed up the deal. No matter what the issue with the property may be, avoid this investment. You don’t want to be facing too many costly repairs that weren’t in the budget. While everything may look great on paper, personally walking through the property can be extremely revealing when it comes to the true condition of the structure and the aesthetics of the property as well. 

It can be extremely stressful to realize too late that a property you expected to be an income producer has turned into a nightmare. Bypass the financial losses, disturbed nights of sleep, and time-consuming pitfalls involved with making a bad investment on your own by working with The Zenith Partners. You can be confident you’ll be successfully building wealth by earning passive and dependable returns on your property in Houston with us.
