- What Are The Pros and Cons of Single Family Rentals? Here’s a Video On Investing In Real Estate Rental Properties...
Hi, this is Frank Chen with REIClub.com, the only site you need as a real estate investor. Today I’ve got a quick video on buying and holding real estate.
Many investors I talk to look for the quick pay day real estate strategy, and I don’t blame them, but what happens when the market’s inventory dips below the demand for them? That’s why it’s important to expand your investment strategies so you can cater to whatever market you are in.
Perhaps one of the more common forms of investing, the "buy and hold strategy", involves purchasing a property and renting it out for an extended period of time. (aka. rental property)

Ultimately, there is much more to Buy and Hold than meets the eye, but if you take the time to learn how to evaluate and buy good deals, find quality tenants, and manage them properly, you're going to be on your path to running a successful business. Remember, it’s not always about the quick flips and quick pay days, try to keep 1 out of every 3 deals you flip, turn it into rental investment and watch your monthly income increase exponentially.
