Planning to ride on the real estate bandwagon as a home investor? Consider this practical piece of advice from

If you’re thinking about investing in a rental property, experts say low home prices combined with low interest rates make this the best time in years to become a real-estate investor.

“We haven’t seen home prices this low in so many years, coupled with the rates being so low,” says Jill Sjolin, an agent with Windermere Real Estate in Woodinville, Wash., who specializes in investment properties. “When the money is cheap to borrow and the houses are cheap to buy, it’s absolutely the best time to invest.”

Additionally, prudent investing should also put prime importance on the location. For buyers, Milwaukee may not be the first place that comes to mind. However, according to, it is among the “Top 14 Underrated Places You’ll Really Want to Move To”, meaning there’s a steady stream of people who find the charm of the place to be irresistible.

Therefore, as a seller, before posting any ads, it is best that you take some time to inspect your property carefully. Prospective investors are fastidious about the big and little details and features of your home, and no one is likely to shell out money to cover for repairs for damage that should not have been there in the first place.

For example, if your windows are already showing the signs of age – weathered, scratched or unstable, it is time to seek the help of a factory-trained expert for window installation in Milwaukee.

Choose Renewal by Andersen®, a reliable window replacement company in Milwaukee, for all your sprucing up tasks. From their wide selection of Fibrex™ composite material windows, you can choose a style that suits your personal preference and fits your budget.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
