What is rental income real estate investing?

Rental income real estate investing is a strategy where investors purchase properties with the intent to rent them for a monthly income. This is also known as a buy-and-hold and is a more long-term investment approach.

The main difference between flipping and rental income real estate investing is that flipping entails selling the property immediately after renovation work has been completed, whereas with rental income properties, the intent is to hold onto the investment for a longer period of time – typically 5-20 years.
