There is a lot that goes into finding the right rental property. Many novice investors think they can turn any property in a cash flowing rental property. The reality is that there are a handful of important features that influence just how strong the property will be. It is not enough to make some minor improvements, stick a “for rent” sign in the front yard and wait for tenants to flock to the property. If the market is poor or the demographics are weak any improvements you make could be for naught. On the flip side, if you find the right property in the right area you can earn monthly cash flow and long term wealth for as long as you own the property. Here are four important qualities of any successful rental property.
It is important not to evaluate a prospective property on how it looks now but rather the potential. Often times knocking down a wall or adding an extra half bathroom can greatly enhance the value.

Look at these four areas to help you find the perfect rental property.
