Another Property Investment question...  Reply with quote  

I will try to keep this short and sweet:

-I'm 30 years old and own my home
-I'm am looking into investment property (duplex, townhome, or flat) between $145 K - $180K
-I would like to invest for either 7 or 10 years using an interest only loan
-I will use the property as rental property
-Should I become a LLC to protect my home?

Suggestions?

Thanks

If I were you I would establish the LLC. It only costs a couple hundred dollars and will give you better night's sleep for years to come.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac require 20% DP on a SFH and 25% DP on multiplexes when investing in Real Estate, so unless you use hard money or a loan from someone else I don't see that being possible.

Short term rentals promise you decent returns - about 5-7% yields. Hiring a management company helps to avoid problems with finding new tenants. Its service costs 20−25% of the total rental revenue but the expenses will be rewarded with higher occupancy rates. The best option is a one-bedroom apartment somewhere in the city center popular with tourists. Barcelona might be a good option https://tranio.com/spain/catalonia/barcelona/ (it is a top-notch destination for the British)

The moment you deal with people and/or situations where there could be a legal law suit you need to have some sort of protection. An LLC is not the only way to go, and although I am not a lawyer and I am NOT giving you any form of legal advice, it is my personal (strong) opinion you should go for an LLC.

You can google the pro's and cons, but you will come to find it is not worth the risk not being protected!

I was a landlord for 40 yrs. 4 single-family houses. I used IO loans when they were available (as a way to retain the use of my own capital for more investments). The ones that I negotiated were IO for about 10 yrs followed by 20 yrs of amortization. If rates were favorable at that point, I refi'd into a 30 yr FR.

But you'll find that lender will not loan money to an LLC, especially on highly leveraged property. And as soon as you use personal money to make a down payment, the window between you and your LLC opens - and litigation flows thru to your personal wealth. A better method might be to use an umbrella policy to protect you against lawsuits.

Whoops - I just realized that this post is 11 years old - I guess that he made his decision long ago and the outcome is now history.
