There are two investment components to the strategy of buy and hold. One is income derived from the rental of the home. The second is appreciation of the asset.
Appreciation is cyclical and local so there is no set assumption as to when that component may create significant value. Your rental asset though is valued on both components. A standard valuation of a rental home is not a comparable sales study typically completed by a REALTOR – unless the buyer will be an owner-occupant.
So, the measurement of the value of your rental home becomes a factor of the successful gross and net income received, combined with any increases in your equity. WILMOTH Group can certainly be a factor in the improvements in your gross and net income. We can also make many suggestions of improvements we have seen made to a property that will help appreciation be maximized.
