Rent Vs. Sell

Putting your property on the market for rent or to sell is often a difficult decision. Sometimes selling can be the best choice. Although, renting your property can often hold the key to maximize the owner’s return on investment.

As of right now, real estate prices are on the rise. The rise in the market creates a huge benefit for homeowners that decide to rent out their homes. Rental income can be a great form of passive income. The ideal situation is for the tenant’s monthly rent payments to cover for the cost of your mortgage while you continue to build equity in the property. This can create a large cash out at the end of your investment journey. Who knows this may even cause you to decide to get more investment properties with the extra cash you have received!

Renting also has some tax advantages as well! Of course, any management fees or repairs are tax deductible. For the most detailed information regarding these savings, we would highly recommend discussing this with your Certified Public Accountant.
