SFH Rental or Condo/Apartment?

2 Replies

Hello everyone! I have not made a post here in quite some time. I am wondering would it make sense to purchase an individual condo or apartment unit to rent out versus a single family home? Around my town there are many listings for such units. Opinions, answers, feedback? Anything would be helpful, please and thank you.

I would highly recommend the apartment route. It provides some much better downside protection than doing the SFR route. Our group currently has a 200+ unit in Houston and is doing well. Houston is a great market overall. Just watch out for the flood plane zones. Insurance can be high.
