Through owning hundreds of investment homes since 1999, we’ve learned a lot about real estate.
Over the years we’ve continued to move up-market in quality. The great recession corroborated what we learned; quality assets would hold. Quality assets we call Blue-chip real estate. These properties are less expensive to maintain, have lower Vacancy rates, attract better tenants, and will deliver sustainable returns year-in and year-out.
Reason to invest in Blue-chip real estate
- Dual Exit Strategy
Investors will discount your property when you sell. Sell to owner occupants. Why buy in neighborhoods dominated by investors?
- Better Net Rental Yield
Vacancy, Maintenance, & Tenant Turnover are often grossly understated in non-Blue-chip properties.
- Less Headaches, Less Hassle
Lower maintenance, lower tenant failure rate, lower tenant turnover
- Lower Downside Risk
Blue-chip properties are in stable or growing neighborhoods
