I think there are a lot of places that I wouldn want to live but would be fine for most. I would never again want to move into an apartment (I don think they appreciate my cats but it doesn mean I would not buy one. I also wouldn want to live in certain areas of my county such as B Street but I don think that should be the primary reason for avoiding a purchase.

Of those ten, only two qualified and one was interested.

Do I feel safe in this neighborhood? Would I feel safe talking to tenants, showing units, or performing maintenance?

Let me clarify what I mean. A good friend of mine owns a small rental property near this one and he often hires me to answer phones and show units when he is out of town. Because his units are cheap ($395), the location, and the unit mix (usually studios or one bedroom) attract a certain type of tenant. The last time I helped him rent one of his units I took over fifty phone calls in thirty six hours. With each call I explained the property and qualification standards over the phone (as to not waste anyone time).

And Then There Is The Issue of Nike Jacket Winter Tenants the major reason I am hesitant of purchasing in this location is not because of the location itself. I concerned about the quality of tenants I would be dealing with. With the risk of offending the politically correct in our society, (well, here I go) I believe the lower income tenants often come with significant more hassle than that of higher income.

The property numbers are great $97,000 for six units, average rent at $475 per month, which following the 50% rule leaves $1400 for a mortgage payment plenty to cover the loan payment and provide substantial cashflow. The property is in need of some cosmetic renovations (paint, landscaping) to make it look less "scary," but I not worried about getting them done. Additionally, the county assesses the property at more than double what is being asked.

Again, I not saying this doesn happen to higher income properties. In my experience, however, the wasted time and headache in dealing with tenants around "B Street" are vastly higher than other areas.

In fact, I probably would. While I wouldn leave my truck tool box unlocked and parked overnight, I don feel like I going to get mugged by simply being there.
