Do you have an exit strategy?

Many investors start by buying their first property, and then find out later, they had no idea what they planned to do with it once the owned it. This is why I ask the question to all investors prior to them buying a property through me. What is your exit strategy?


An exit strategy maybe as simple as renting the property and get the tax deductions from the property, or it maybe as complex as buying 6 properties all at the same time for the purpose of rehabbing and doing a lease with an option to buy. When the options are all exercised, you can then purchase a 12-plex on a 1031 exchange.

These are all good exit strategies, but if you just are buying a property because it looks like a good deal, make sure you have an exit strategy in case it isn't. My investors don't like to lose money, and if they make a mistake they always have an exit strategy that will make them money in the long run.

So what is your exit strategy?
