When it comes to finding and purchasing rental properties, you want to ensure you have a knowledgeable, experienced partner to help you in your search.

Buying investment properties is a whole other ball game compared to simply purchasing a personal residence.

You have to think about the make-ready work, rent rates, cash flow, appreciation, crime rates, school districts, property taxes, etc, and how it will all fit in with your goals and strategy.
