Analyzing Properties For A Multi-Family House Hack
I am new to the Tampa area and looking to buy a small multi-family property to house hack this summer. I have begun analyzing properties in the Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete area.
Being new to real estate and analyzing properties I feel like I am still "winging it." What advice would you give to someone that is starting their process of looking at properties? Would you use the BP Rental property Calculator, or create your own Excel Spreadsheet with formulas? Are there any specific expenses that are abnormally high or unique to the area?
Obviously, the current state of the market it has been tough to find many deals in the area. Is there cities/areas nearby that you would suggest to look at for properties? Areas that you see potential growth as the Tampa market expands?
