If you’re considering getting into the landlord game, you might wonder whether it’s best to buy a single family home or a condominium. Many people believe it best to stay away from condominiums because of all the issues with homeowners associations, and they have a point. However, single family homes have many issues, too, so don’t make up your mind so quickly. Consider these things:
Investment returns When you’re buying an investment property, the first thing you should do is pencil out your real estate deal to see if it has fair cash-on-cash investment returns. As a general rule, you’ll find that single family homes typically have lower cash-on-cash returns than condominium properties.

The condominium will probably take this round, but every property is different, so you need to pencil out your specific deal to understand the returns.
Tenant turnover Every time your tenants leave, you’ll need to re-rent the property. And it’s a lot of work! You have to advertise, take calls and emails, show the property, draft a lease, do a credit check, move the old tenant out,... Read More

We are pleased to welcome the return of Pamela Pendleton to the Norris & Company sales team. Originally joining the company in 1990, Pam’s expertise in matching buyers with their dream home and marketing properties for her clients has been the key to her success. She has been recognized as a consistent leader during her career due to her professional integrity, exemplary service to her clients and extensive knowledge of Florida coastal communities.
A graduate of Monmouth University, Pam’s passion for real estate began while spending summers in college working at a real estate firm located in a coastal resort area in New Jersey. Recently returning to Vero Beach, she listed and sold real estate in St. Augustine from 2006-2009 and in Naples from 2009-2015.
