While I don’t have a lot of rental properties in my portfolio, I treasure each and every one of them. They will be the way that I pay for my retirement and I treat each and every one of them as investments. A lot of number crunching goes into picking them out, but I still like to inspect them in-person once we have taken possession of them.
So I found myself out at our latest purchase here today and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. I had bought this bungalow because of the amazing curb appeal that I saw in the pictures, and standing there in real-life was a completely different experience.
The place looked good.
While first impressions are important, I wanted to see what the place looked like inside. I knew that this home had some water issues in the past, but one of my favorite water damage restoration Los Angeles companies did the work, so I wasn’t worried about it. In fact, the inside of the home was in better shape than I would have expected, so all we will have to do before we rent it out is a little cleaning and a fresh coat of paint.
Hopefully it won’t take long to get the work done – I’d like to have it rented out by the middle of the month.
