Keeping your current home as an investment might be a smart play…or not

This is a decision that sometimes get’s over complicated.  It’s actually not a decision at all if you need to pull the equity from your current home to secure a new one or to secure much more favorable financing terms.  But if it’s not then it’s still a relatively basic financial analysis.  This article details some of those factors but if the property is in an appreciating market, would give you a positive cash flow when rented and it’s rolling towards lots of needed capital improvements than keeping it could be an excellent highly leveraged low risk investment strategy.  As always call me to discuss the various ins and outs.
