Whether you’ve invested in commercial real estate previously or you’re just getting started, there’s always more to learn and discover. At Perfect RealEstate Investments, we’re passionate about helping you make your ventures as lucrative as possible. Is a multifamily property right for you?

There Are Different Types of Apartment Buildings

If you decide to invest in residential income properties, the first thing you should ask yourself is: What Should You Buy Multifamily or Single Family? There are also different classes of multifamily properties. When deciding on a particular property you need to consider the class of the building and not the size.

  • C&D properties are not suitable for distant or out-of-state investors.
  • First-time investors are also advised to stay away from C&D properties
  • Generally speaking, Class A & B properties have a lower CAP rate compared to Class C & D properties.

Local property investors need to ask the following questions when considering a multifamily investment property:

  • Will I Take Care of Rental Property Management Myself or Hire Professionals?
    • Manage the Property Myself: If you are a handyman and good at fixing things yourself, you can consider buying C & D class properties. If you are not good at fixing things yourself – do not consider C & D class properties.
    • Hire Professionals: Look at A & B class properties as it is very difficult to find a management company willing to take care of C&D properties unless the property is fairly large.
