Rentals and flips are really two totally different types of properties. The things you will need to be looking for in a rental will usually not be the same things that will make a flip profitable. In addition, you need to look at the time frames you are comfortable with, the rate of return you need to get on your investment and your goals.

Rentals will require a longer "buy and hold" strategy and dependence on longer term market conditions while flips offer the potential for higher returns over much shorter periods. Each option will have their benefits and risks but seasoned investors usually find that their resources, professional contacts and ultimate goals will dictate which options are best for them.

Feel free to let me know if you would like to discuss some strategies for investment properties in Colorado Springs, I would be happy to speak with you further about it.
