is this a bad time to buy property to rent out. I am new to this and dont want to buy property to have to let it sit without renters. How bad is it out there and what price range should i be working in to get properties rented.

I buy mostly inner-city properties, and there is never a slow time for me. I even have hard-to-rent small efficiencies, and keep them filled.

A friend of mine recently said, “There’s a ton of money to be made in the ‘hood’.” He deals strictly with Section 8’s in Grand Rapids. I fully believe him.

I guess, in finally answering your question, if you are buying upper-end properties, you may feel the sting when things turn down, economically speaking (I do not speak from experience here). I rent to blue-collar people, and there is always demand. Simple SFR’s are no-brainers to me, but cashflow is limited. Every one of my SFR’s has been rented for every single day since I owned or completed rehabbing them.

You know where I am, and now have my e-mail addy. Contact me for more help, if you need it. I’m no expert, but will be happy to share the experiences I have had.

Good luck, Michigander.
