Investing in residential properties is a fine way to generate passive income. As shelter is one of the basic needs of man, the demand for a place to live in never ceases over time. Hence, it makes sense that above all property types to put your money in, houses, that is, providing living quarters to people, can be an excellent choice to start with.


How To Find A Good Residential Property To Invest In

As an investor, the need to have a checklist that itemizes the top features to look for in a house is a must. There’s the property type to consider – should you go for a condo, apartment or family home; there’s the location of course – which area is more profitable; and there’s the price range – how much can you afford in a sense that it is in line with the capability of future renters to pay on. Once you have determined all these, the next aspect to focus on is where and how to find such land.

Here are four (4) tips to help you with that.


1.       Start online. There are websites that aim to provide information to those who are looking to invest in real estate. One example is Property Frontiers. They have useful guidelines for new and experienced investors in Vietnam, Malaysia and Philippines. They will give you a short background about the country and offer recommended hotspots too.


2.       Look for a reputable realtor. After identifying the perfect place for your rental home, the next plan of action is to look for a reputed company that can assist you with your goal. Which realtors can give you the finest offers in terms of location and price range? For instance, if you prefer somewhere in the Laguna area, perhaps you can try Nuvali in Sta. Rosa. Whichever firm you decide on, remember to check their websites or call their numbers so you’ll be properly informed of their current offerings in the market.


3.       Keep in touch with an agent. Another option is to search for an agent who can fully guide you on your journey as an investor. Contact as many as you can. Create an email account meant for this purpose alone. Then, get into their mailing lists so you’ll be up-to-date accordingly and educated as well.


4.       See the newspapers. This is perhaps one of the oldest channels to lean into if you’re looking to find real estate investments. Local publications sometimes have opportunities worth checking into.
