How we work: What type of Property?
We specialize in
We will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each type of property and create a customized search that meets your unique objectives.
For Sale Off Market
When you are working with us you will be notified of any new listings that we are taking. Some of these listings will never make it on to the MLS. This is just another service that we provide to our clients to give you an advantage over your competition.
Choosing a Neighborhood
Although it may appear there are quite a few properties available in each area. The problem being that many of the properties simply do not make sense financially. We can *guide you towards the perfect blend of quality of neighborhood verses cash flow. This is a particularly important step because at a certain price point in the market the prices start to escalate quickly while rents barely increase. This is the point of diminishing returns. Through our local market expertise, we can effectively help you achieve that perfect blend of quality verses cash flow according to your comfort level.
* This is best achieved by touring our target areas together. We can set up a half-day tour of your target areas.
By the end of the tour, we will be on the same page about the quality of neighborhood you are comfortable with and make finding your property dramatically easier. To better understand this concept, I rate neighborhoods by the relationship between cash flow and price. This can be illustrated by using a visual of the old Monopoly game board.
In Zip Codes on my scale between 3-5, there is the best blend between an affordable price and cash flow. The higher on this subjective scale you go the better the neighborhood is but cash flow is generally reduced exponentially in neighborhoods above a 5 on my scale. Neighborhoods below 3 on my scale may have higher crime rates and a greater chance of vandalism.
You may decide to focus on neighborhoods higher or lower on this scale. There is no single right answer. *DO NOT ASK US ABOUT Race, Religion, or National Original we cannot legally discuss these topics with you, and our neighborhood ratings are based on Cash Flow. We are an Equal Opportunity Brokerage and will not discriminate in the representation of buyers or sellers.

Rentometer Pro Analysis
The rents are one of the most import variables to consider in buying an investment property. If they are too low it is difficult to make a profit with the investment. If the rents are too high you will have a high turnover rate. If you are making a purchase decision based on the rent numbers, we want to make sure you can duplicate the current rents with a new tenant if the existing tenant moves out. To help you with this analysis we will provide a free rent analysis to let you see how the current rents compare with the fair market rents in the area. This will also help identify properties with upside potential.
MLS Unit Mix Report
The MLS Unit Mix Rent report is a good tool to use along with our Rental Analysis report. The Rental Analysis Report is an aggregation of multiple on-line for rent websites this report has current and past rental comps. This data can be compared to the actual rents for similar properties that are in the MLS to quickly see which properties have the most upside potential when repositioning the property.
