Services for Investment Property Owners

Purchasing Investment Properties

Need help finding that perfect investment property? As a real estate developer and investor, I have a lot of experience in investment properties. Purchasing an investment property -- especially something like a multi-family building -- is much different than buying a home for yourself to reside in. Unlike purchasing real estate to live in, purchasing a rental property is solely about making a return on your investment, either on a monthly basis or in the future. True, the house you live in is an investment as well, but for most people their own home is about so much more than just an investment.

Investing can be daunting if you have never done it before.

I can help you find good investment deals, be it to flip or for an ongoing income stream. As there are many different ways to analyze an investment properties worth, it can be daunting if you have never done it before. Despite the market bubble in some areas, Philadelphia did not artificially inflate as much, and has always been one of the most affordable big cities on the east coast. Investing in major urban areas is never a bad thing as scarcity of land drives the value. For instance, as local universities — such as the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel, and Temple — continue to expand their enrollment each year, the demand for student rentals continues to rise. Areas in the city continue to gentrify and rents continue to increase accordingly. I can also help you identify the hot areas that are on the rise.

I have purchased or helped purchase investment properties in California, Virginia, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Canada. My areas of expertise for investment properties in Philadelphia include University City, Center City and the Main Line. I would be happy to assist you in your investment property needs.

Finding Tenants

As a property manager and investor, I have found many renters for houses and apartments in the past. I know the places to advertise, and have a great deal of experience with tenants.

It can be a time-consuming process finding a tenant, so let me help you with the process. Whether it is a multi-family investment property or you just need to rent your home while you travel for the year, I can help find you renters for your property.

Finding a renter by yourself may be easier than selling for sale by owner (FSBO), but the fees you pay to a Realtor to show your property and place it on the multiple listing service (MLS) can often help you get your property rented a couple months sooner and ends up saving you money in the end. Either way, I would be glad to give you a hand renting your property or helping you determine the correct rent to charge. Shoot me an email or give me a call and I would be happy to give you a free, no pressure estimate.
