The Pros and Cons of Owning a Rental Property


Renting property is actually more complicated than it sounds, and you�ll have to weigh your options carefully before you decide that renting out is right for you.

If you�ve got a second home anywhere, you know that renting a property comes with its disadvantages and advantages. �But if you�ve never invested in another property before and would like to learn about how to rent yours out, there are a few things you should know before you get started. �Renting property is actually more complicated than it sounds, and you�ll have to weigh your options carefully before you decide that renting out is right for you. �If you�ve got a property you�re thinking of renting out, read on for some quick tips.



  • Income: The most obvious benefit that comes with renting out a property is the income you�ll receive from tenants. �It�s almost guaranteed that, under the right circumstances, you�ll end up making a decent profit on your property, or at least break even with your expenses. �
  • Home Improvement: Easy home improvement projects like a repaint or a new fence not only allow you to charge more for rent, but they also increase the property value. �An increased property value can be incredibly helpful when it comes time to sell your property. �Without a lot of financial sacrifice, you can easily add profit to your property.
  • Sell for Cash: If you do find yourself short on cash at any point, you have an extra property that you can sell in the event of an emergency. �It�s an interesting safety net, but by renting out another property, you give yourself the ability to make a profit regardless of what happens.




  • Damages: Tenants can cause a lot of damage. �And of course you can charge them, but security deposits only go so far. �There�s also the risk that your tenant won�t pay on time, and you�ll go through periods of tight financial situations.
  • Taxes: Property taxes can cause issues when you go through a renting dry spell. �If you aren�t getting any income, paying an extra property tax on top of your primary home could end up crippling your wallet.
  • Insurance: You have to pay insurance whether the tenant is renting the property or not. �Therefore, it�s another cut into your profits. �Not to mention, if your property is somewhere risky like the shore or a different area prone to natural damage, repairs can sometimes cost more than you bargained for.
