In general, it would be house. There are many who would opt for buying houses just after they got married, or when family is getting bigger. Flats and apartments are usually the single ones choice.

There are some advantages renting an apartment over owning a regular home. Just like, apartment renting is cheaper, you are not entirely responsible for everything that happens and you don't worry about upkeep and maintenance, because its the landlord's obligation.

ider is to look for the right ads in the newspaper classifieds, apartment hunter publications, college campus bulletin boards, and online for available units so you will be sure that you gain the right information for your needs. Besides, you can ask your friends to get the information that can be functional for your needs.

If you plan on selling your investment at the end of it all, investing in a house would be a better investment than an apartment. The market for home purchasing is much better than the market for entrepreneurs looking for rental properties. Go with the house.

If you can afford it, it is much better to own a house than renting one

Hi,
You'll need to provide more specifics than that. I could easily see how location and value of an apartment building, or house could affect how easy it is to buy-rent-flip.

House has high resale value but if you have a apartment at very good place then it also gives you good resale amount. But houses have high resale value.

There are many difference between apartment and home like in apartment have more free space and live in alone. In house have no more space but apartment value is more rather than house.

Buy rent flip  Reply with quote  

I think that a house would be a better investment overall, however it does depend on location as a prime location of a flat would always be rented out and can be charged at great rates and would pay back the cost in no time.. However a house could always be renovated into apartments if it was also in a great location..

I just love to read all your posts. Well, I want to share mine. Buying a house would still give you a parcel or a piece of land. Buying a condo will leave you nothing. In the event that fire sets in, the land will still be yours. As for the condos, there is an expected and required termination that the condo would have to be demolished and built up again. That is going to leave you with nothing. This is why I think condos are not being bought by essence. It is just the right to possess as when the time comes, it would have to be given up, unlike the house with the lot.

The House is much better then the apartment and to invest in homes can be much more efficient. Also, one can better get updated with a lot of things and you can search for additional investment.
