What’s the difference between saving and investing? What’s the difference between an “investment property” and a “home”? It all depends on your mindset.
An investment property could actually double as a home if you rent it out. Although this may sound appealing (two birds, one stone, right?) there is an even better proposition: short-term rentals (STR). Traditionally, investment property is rented out to tenants on a long-term basis which means the owner cannot use the property or visit it unless the unit is vacant. But STRs allow you to essentially own as much real estate as possible and stay wherever you want, whenever you want. The best part? Whichever property you’re not at is making money as we speak. So how and where should you get started?
