How to Use Your Home Equity to Buy Performing Assets
If your primary residence has built up equity, it’s wise to use it to your advantage. Think about how you can turn this liability (home) into a performing asset. One of my favorite ways to access equity is to get a HELOC. The bank will give you access to a credit line which you can use as a downpayment on a rental property.
The Best States to Live and Invest
If you want to live and invest in the same state, I have a few suggestions. Texas is my favorite state to invest due to its landlord friendliness. Texas also offers other benefits like no state income taxes. I would also consider Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
How to Decide Between Flipping and Renting a Condo
Under normal circumstances, I would always choose renting… but in this circumstance, there are a couple reasons why flipping might be a better choice. For starters, most condos belong to HOAs which are not landlord friendly. Additionally, right now is a great time to flip. Many flippers are seeing profits rise 25%. In this scenario, it might be best to flip and then reinvest the profits.
