We love the lone star state – when it comes to real estate investing opportunities, it’s a true star. A strong tenant base make Dallas a proven winner: colleges, stable employers, major growth (just to name a few). The properties here are gorgeous – and they go fast (for good reason).

Today’s showcase property is a real find. Just outside of Dallas, this spectacular find is a 5 bedroom mini-mansion that has five bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and is the perfect situation for a family, professional students or corporate renting. We love how beautiful this looks – can we say curb appeal enough? Not to mention this one brings in some serious cash-flow for a low purchase price. Check it out – it’s an amazing property.

    Ali, is it unlikely that a HELOC loan can used as a down-pmt for an out of state investment property?

    • Ali

      Hey Ed, I really can’t say for sure, you’d have to find out from a lender. But lenders are extremely picky about the “source” of a down payment. But in the case of it being a HELOC, that may qualify as an approved source? Maybe? I’d find an investor-friendly lender and ask them to know for sure.

    Hi Ali,

    Regaring property in Lancaster, TX, I don’t see you included utilities. Do tenants pay for ALL utilities in TX?

    Can use conventional financing (I qualify for it) to get this deal?



    • Ali

      Hi Vania, yes you can use conventional financing on this one. As far as utilities, it’s not a per state thing but for these properties, tenants do pay the utilities.
