Will be a buy and hold long term rental. Appreciation is not counted on. Jumping in for Rental Buy and Hold #1. COE 12.15.2019 will be using a local property manager since I live in California. My son is a Officer at Warner Robins and introduced me to the area.
What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?
My son is in the Air Force and purchased his first home in the area. The rent to value ratio is incredibly high and with 20% down cash flows nicely for me.
How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?
It was a For Sale By Owner on my sons street. He saw the sign go up. I am licvensed in California and requested a 2% reduction verse using an agent. I will be getting a appraisal and Whole House Inspection but the home was built in 2016 and in great condition. Was a primary residence for a single person so 2 rooms have not even been lived in.

Lender finacing, 20% down with a local Georgia Mortgae Broker 5.375% fixed for 30 years.
