probably about as good as it gets. try ultimately to de-finance the property and keep the cash cow alive. ask yourself what might happen to your local market if you are hesitant about losing it someday. keep it going…

I was wanting to know if this is smart RE investing? I bought a home for 42k Iput 13K in the house, total investment 55K. The house apraised for 79K, I took out a 100% loan onthe apraise value at 8% for 20yrs payment is 660 p&i . Home is rented for one year at 725mo. I took the 24K and bought two more homes I could do the same thing with. Now to me this is a win deal,my friend says I am not wise in doing this b/c he knows some one who lost everything b/c the market fell out where he lived I think in CA. Anyway he is not going to stop me but I thought I would get some other investors input also Thanks JB NC

Instead of renting the houses out, why not L/O them. You could pull out several thousand from consideration on each house plus maybe some higher rent. When (and if) the house sells in a couple of years, you make money on that end also. If it doesn’t sell, L/O it again for some more consideration money.
