To sell or rent my house out ?

2 Replies

Hey y’all , this is my first ever post on here. So I’m moving from NJ to NC and I’m wondering how to go about buying another home in NC. Can I keep my house here in NJ rent it out and buy a duplex in NC ? If I rent my house out before I leave NJ , do you think a mortgage lender will lend me money for a new home ?

@Martien Vanhooft if you rent out your house in NJ will it cash flow? To get a second mortgage I'm sure some banks would do it depending on your debt to income ratio If I'm not mistaken. If you keep it you would also need to put a team in place to manage it while you are away. David greens book long distance real estae investing Long-Distance Real Estate Investing: How to Buy, Rehab, and Manage Out-of-State Rental Properties is a good read I would read that book cover to cover then make your decision.
