What to Know About Choosing Solar Power for Your New Home

The renewable energy issue is more viable than ever, meaning those who invest early can see returns down the line. Even now, it’s still a great way to help the planet and offers you a tempting alternative to paying the power company for service each month, especially here in Florida where the sun shines frequently. That said, solar power still has a somewhat high barrier to entry. With that in mind, here’s what to know about choosing solar power for your new home.

Choosing Solar Power for Your New Home: Is it Worth It?

While solar power is theoretically viable anywhere there’s sunlight, you need to consider more in-depth aspects if you hope to convert your home to an exclusively solar setup. For one, think about where your house is located, both on the big and small scale. Do you live somewhere that is frequently overcast and gets only a few good hours of sun throughout the year? Is your house underneath a shady area? Is your home even big enough to support a robust enough solar panel array to take in enough power? These kinds of setbacks can tank your solar power setup before it even gets off the ground.

Choosing Solar Power for Your New Home: Cost

Cost is a major issue for most people looking to get into solar power. Not only is the up-front solar installation cost typically quite large, the cost of repairs and maintenance can also add up, especially if you initially purchased cheaper equipment. However, you should also balance this against things like the cost of traditional power options in your area as well as any benefits or price reduction that might be available to you. Consumers may be given time to receive tax credits if they take out a loan to finance solar panels, for example.

Choosing Solar Power for Your New Home: Availability

Even if cost and location viability aren’t factors for you, you might find an unexpected stumbling block for solar power in that it simply isn’t available where you live. Depending on the area, solar providers may be few to nonexistent, making it difficult to find anyone who will sell you the equipment. While some services may be willing to have the equipment sent to you from out of the area, this can still make installation an issue. There may even be various laws governing solar power where you live, making it necessary to read up on local statutes prior to committing to solar. 

Solar energy has a wealth of possibilities and the potential to save you tons of money down the line. Before you jump in, though, keep cost, your geographic location, and availability in mind.

Investing in Long Term Single-Family Rental Properties

Investing in real estate particularly single-family rental properties can be an excellent way to help expand your portfolio and begin your path to financial independence. While there are many investment options worth considering, one of the easiest to manage are long term, single-family rental properties.

 

Single-family rental properties are houses investors purchase and then rent out to tenants. While many investors may purchase and rent a property as-is, others might renovate or even flip the property before making it available to rent, thus increasing the property value and monthly rental price.

What to Know When Searching for Your Investment Property

If you’re hoping for long term revenue, you’ll need to carefully search for a property that is low-risk and can generate steady and reliable ROI. This might often mean purchasing a more expensive property in a popular neighborhood or in a good school district, in order to secure the demand for your housing.

 

Other factors to consider when searching for the right area include an affordable cost of living, good job opportunities, low crime rates, and population/local economy growth. You don’t have to limit yourself to properties that are nearby your physical location, either. You can purchase single-family homes anywhere across the country and partner with a property manager to help you manage your tenants’ needs.

 

A real estate agent with a keen eye for investing can help you weigh the pros and cons before purchasing your single-family rental property.

Determine a Management Strategy

Even if you only want to own one single-family rental property, you’ll need to manage tenant requests, rent payments, and home repairs. Figuring out if you can handle most of this work on your own or if you’d prefer to hire help will help you determine how much time and money you’ll need to spend managing your property.

 

Planning for these expenses upfront will save you from surprises down the line.

Think Outside the Box

A vacant home is the main way you will lose money on single-family rental homes. If your home is in-between tenants or you’re not ready to rent it out long term, consider renting it out as an Airbnb, so you’re still generating some income. This works particularly well in cities and areas close to popular attractions.

Don’t Limit Your Investments

Once you have established one single-family rental property in an area you feel confident will generate good revenue, you can then take some of the profit you’re earning and roll that into your next investment. You can buy in the same area or find another profitable neighborhood to purchase single-family homes in.

August 2019 Lee County Foreclosure Trends: Notes

  • Essentially August is more of the same in relation to the foreclosure trend.
  • None the foreclosure filings appear to be a result of the Bertram Versus US bank decision due to the date of the last payment.
  • The lack of Certificate of Title Growth in relation to the Lis Pendens filings shows that the market has improved to the point if you go into default. You can trade out.
  • The intuitional distressed market will continue to not be a primary driver.
  • Most of the foreclosures appear to be smaller loan amounts. There is significant demand within those price points.

It is a lot easier than you think to start investing in real estate. Whether you want to be a landlord, flip homes or simply invest in companies that invest in real estate, there are many ways to get a quality return on your original investment.

Getting a First-Time Home Loan

The process of buying your first home is often so hard it should be considered a sport. Often newcomers to the home market will want to gloss over most of the tedious paperwork in order to simply get it over with. However, this is not the best strategy to take as anything you sign your name to will no doubt follow you for years. One of the most important areas you should pay considerable attention to is your home loan. Therefore, we’ve listed the top three things to keep in mind when getting a first-time home loan.  

Getting a First-Time Home Loan: Save for a Down Payment

No matter how great your home loan seems to be, the fact is that it can be considerably better for your financial well-being if you place a large down payment first. Simply said, if you place a large down payment on your home, the amount of mortgage owed each month will drastically fall. Although you might have that itch to get into your brand-new home, in this case, patience is truly your best route. 

Getting a First-Time Home Loan: Use a Mortgage Lender

The loan approval process can take several weeks and create a lot of stress on potential home buyers. Opting into hiring a mortgage lender will not only open a plethora of doors to lenders you may have not even known about, but they will most often do the negotiation for you. We do, however, highly advise new home buyers to seek recommendations for professional mortgage lenders from family members and online reviews in order to choose the right lender for your needs

Getting a First-Time Home Loan: Build Credit

An individual’s credit score can often make or break a deal if lenders notice that you are behind on credit cards, student loans, etc. They will have the impression that if you can’t even pay for your current debts than how are you going to pay for your mortgage. Therefore, one of the most effective things you can do to get that perfect home loan is to work on your credit score prior to applying. Yes, this might take you quite some time but trust us, the payoff is worth the wait. 

Your plate is quite full, so having to pay extra on a home loan should not be added to that. We advise that you take your time understanding the numbers, both on their part and yours. Now that you have the right information, go find your dream home.

Investing in Self Storage Facilities

When investing in real estate, there are many options available to new or existing investors, with several avenues worth exploring in the commercial space. While many commercial real estate investors look to purchase apartment complexes, retail spaces, offices, or warehouses, there are other options available.

 If you’re not interested in dealing with tenants, but find monthly rental income attractive, there’s an alternative form of real estate investing you should look into: self-storage facilities.

 

Self-storage facilities offer customers a place to safely store their belongings, monthly. While contract terms can vary, the premise is simple: a customer pays monthly rent for storage space. While there’s generally nothing glamorous about these properties, there is continued growth in this sector, no matter the state of the economy.

Self Storage Facilities Remain Strong Investment Options in Any Economy

These storage facilities are often overlooked by new investors, but they can be a reliable source of income, no matter what condition the market is in. When the economy is strong, people often buy in excess and need to store some of their belongings. Likewise, when the economy is bad, people might lose their houses, but they often still pay for storage facilities to hold their belongings until they can get back on their feet.

 

Investing in self storage facilities can be extremely lucrative, whether you chose to actively or passively invest. Investors can choose to purchase their own facility and manage it or they can invest in a trust that funds self-storage facilities.

Additional Upsides for Investing in Storage Facilities

Active investors should be aware that self-storage facilities have a high turnover rate, as many customers use them temporarily, but they often have a high influx of new customers, which can even out the profit. In addition, if a customer leasing a unit doesn’t pay their monthly rent or forfeits the terms of the rental agreement, the property owner can then seize all assets in the unit and auction them off for profit.

 

Investing in Self storage center units often require much less maintenance than other commercial properties, since they consist of little more than cement flooring and walls. Units are often easy to clean out once customers leave, requiring little more than a quick clean up.

 

Savvy investors can also explore other ways to generate revenue in their property by offering moving truck rentals and selling packing supplies.

How to Increase the Resale Value of Your Property in 2019

There’s a saying that a person’s biggest asset is their home. If this is true, and in many cases it is, why not invest additional resources to increase its value? Whether you want to increase the value of your home for future resale or you’re seeking to sell as soon as possible, the following list will inform you of some of the ways you can increase your home’s resale value in 2019.

How to Increase the Resale Value: Smart Technology Additions

It’s no secret that the next generation of homeowners will be the Millenials. This generation is amongst the first to grow up with technology at their fingertips, and they’ll expect the same from their homes. Adding smart technology is an easy and cost-effective investment that you can do today. Adding high-tech features, such as a smart thermostat, fire detectors and security cameras, can significantly increase your home’s value.

How to Increase the Resale Value: Simple Additions

Simple additions to your home are often the most overlooked investment a homeowner can take advantage of. The fact is that people want to come to a home that they can relax in. Simple additions such as aquariums, sunrooms, and home theaters will run you between $600 and $2000 and can easily increase your home’s value. Other simple additions that you can start on today are replacing your window screens and repainting a few of those outdated walls.

How to Increase the Resale Value: Resurface Your Cabinets

There’s a reason why most house flippers tend to focus on making sure the kitchen is just right: More often than not, the kitchen is what sells the home. However, some kitchen renovations can potentially run you up thousands of dollars for even the most simple thing, such as cabinet replacements. So, how can you spruce up your kitchen without breaking the bank? For one, you can always resurface your cabinets for an extremely low price. You might be thinking to yourself, “But they look pretty beaten up, how would that help?” The fact is that although something may look beaten up, it does not mean it’s worthless. Potential buyers will no doubt rejoice in the smoothness and updated look of your resurfaced kitchen cabinets.

Adding value to your home can be a little tricky, but with the right research and budget, you can make it happen. So, what are you waiting for? Take the information in this list and get started on increasing the resale value of your home.

What’s Unique About the Florida Housing Market?

Housing markets are notoriously affected by population growth and decline. Florida, in particular, has a high inflow and outflow of people due to its reputation as a retirement friendly state, tourism hotspot, and a fantastic vacation scene. This means that the Florida housing market is always in transition with multi-variable cycles that can alternatively be beneficial to buyers or sellers at any given time. Here are several unique aspects of the Florida housing market.

What’s Unique About the Florida Housing Market: The Build-to-Rent Market

The build to rent housing market has been especially strong in Florida in recent years with many investors wanting to jump in to capitalize on the opportunity. While renting has traditionally been a small single home business, the Florida housing market is heading into it large scale. Large size, luxurious residential community developments are already underway. A build-to-rent landlord is responsible for the entire community – from maintenance issues to customer service to organizing community events. This means that a rental resident can share in on the social scene such as fitness centers, community pool, or game room. This consumer-focused orientation fits in well with the luxury tourist scene at Florida.

What’s Unique About the Florida Housing Market: Summer Rain

The Florida environment can provide a humid and subtropical experience to visitors and people relocating. With lots of moisture in the air and a rainy season that can last for up to five months, building developers are looking at many months that houses need to stand in the rain. This is why housing and roofing materials are extremely important in Florida housing projects. While sleet and hail are quite uncommon this far south, neither are completely unprecedented, and both can damage less-resilient roofing materials. Just like homes in the far northern states or in the hot desert states, Florida homes also need to be built to prepare for its share of cyclic weather trends.

What’s Unique About the Florida Housing Market: Luxury Housing Market

The luxury housing market represents a significant proportion of the overall value of the housing market in Florida. With many properties on the beach coastline or in higher middle-class neighborhoods valued at over $1 million, the luxury housing market tends to be buyer-focused in its market cycle. Investors interested in Florida’s luxury housing market should consider attending courses to boost their ability to sell in Florida’s unique luxury housing market.

Florida is a state that has been getting a lot of press attention as a great relocation spot for career opportunities, and its real estate market has similarly jumped because of the growth of population. If you are interested in real estate investment in Florida, a familiarity of its many unique trends would greatly benefit you.
