If you’re in the market for an investment home, you might have come to a point where you’re struggling to decide whether to flip a home and sell it or to just hold the home and rent it out to tenants.

One of the most important things to consider when deciding between these two options is the return, or cash flow, you could get.

In the Denver market, for example, a good fix-and-flip property could get you between $20,000 and $100,000.

If you rented out a good single-family home you own for $2,500 a month, but your mortgage on the property is only $1,500, you’re cash-flowing $1,000 a month for life. Rents will go up and down over time, but the overall trend will be upward. You also might have repairs to contend with, so keep that in mind. 
Consider the profit margin for both options and how much work you’re prepared to do to make money from the property.
So would you rather make a quick $20,000 to $100,000, or the $12,000 a year for life? Flipping properties is an intensive project upfront that yields a quick return, and you’ll have to go out and find more properties if you want to continue making money that way.

Ultimately, consider the profit margin for both options and how much work you’re prepared to do to make money from the property. Whichever way you decide to go, I’d love to help you figure out the best fit and how to finance your next investment. Give me a call or send an email, and I’d be happy to start that conversation with you. In the meantime, have a great day!
