Did you know that the roof of an average sized home will divert around 600 gallons of water for every inch of rain that falls? So, some storms could mean your roof will handle well over a thousand gallons of rain. That's a lot of water flowing through your gutters!

By the time a maintenance issue is a problem for the tenant, it usually means it will be much more expensive for you. Sometimes, even the best new rental property owners forget about gutter maintenance. They're quite important though. A backed up gutter can cause leaking into the home! There could be nesting birds, sticks, and all sorts of debris in your gutter and you wouldn't know until your

If you have a rental home, you have to be proactive to protect your investment. You can't rely on tenants to tell you when something is up. Too many times, if it doesn't pertain to them, they won't inform you of problems at your rental house. Many people have basement water alarms and sensors that alert them to water in their basements. These work perfectly, because they get alerted, and then fix the problem and save their belongings. These don't work as well for landlords, because sometimes tenants will avoid disclosing issues in your home in order to prevent you

House flippers focusing on flipping luxury homes are a part of a rising market. While non-luxury houses aren't flipping as well, this market, if you can afford it is still doing well. Consider that the National Association of Realtors showed that sales of existing homes declined over ten percent in the last year. Starter homes, which are usually a common project for house flippers, are part of a decreasing market. Sales are just down among starter homes. Some of that is because of the higher interest rates too. Many people who house flippers would normally try to sell a starter

As a real estate investor, you can save yourself money and time if you know how to spot signs of foundation damage when you first look at a potential investment property. Some minor problems can be fixed, of course. If you only spot minor problems, it's possible that hiring a professional evaluator to check the property may be worth it. Not all foundation issues mean you should walk away from an investment property. But you can save yourself the cost of an evaluation if you can spot the major foundation issues yourself.
