If you're thinking about investing in a rental property, experts say low home prices combined with low interest rates make this the best time in years to become a real-estate investor. 

While the timing may be right, these five tips can help first-time investors take advantage of what might be the opportunity of a lifetime:


  1. First-time investors should find a real-estate agent experienced in investment property deals who can help you locate promising properties.
  2. Since not all investment properties are the same, it's important to determine what type of property fits your strategy.
  3. location is key. Homes in high-rent or highly populated areas are ideal; stay away from rural areas where there are fewer people and a small pool of potential renters.
  4. Speak to potential lenders or even a financial planner about whether you have enough assets to handle the ups and downs that could come with investing.
  5. Build a supporting cast. You may want to have relationships with a property management firm to handle the day-to-day rental affairs, an accountant to help you understand the tax laws. The more support you have, the more successful you will be.
