Buying one 200k or two 100k single family homes.

2 Replies

Hello all,

I am new to the bigger pockets site as well as real estate investing as a whole. I am currently living in Atlanta, Georgia and hope to buy my first single family home this winter. 

Atlanta seems to be a great place to purchase my first home due its rapidly growing economy.

My plan was to buy a single family house for around 200k, and them renting it out. However, I was wondering what you all thought about buying two 100k single family homes instead of one 200k home.

This was just a late night thought and I am very curious of your thoughts!

Have you ran the numbers on both of these scenarios and determined the difference in ROI and cashflow? The numbers will speak for themselves when it comes to deciding whether it is better to buy one $200K property or two $100K properties.
