You look at a unit differently when you are going to be renting it out for an investment than you would if you were to move in. As a full time real estate professional in the Danbury area, I can evalute a property you are considering purchasing. I can provide an estimate monthly rent, repairs or upgrades to be done prior to the marketing for lease, and anything else I feel you should be concerned about, both positives and negatives. When you are investing and leasing real estate, depending on the price range, a home does not have to be perfect. The most important things are a working furnace, cooling, and hot water heater. Applicances should be in working order. The windows, doors and garage should be working. There should be no large holes in the walls. Flooring should be clean. There should be no leakings or clogged plumbing.
