Why Ivy for investors?
First and Foremost: I get it.
As you’ve probably read by now, my father was a flipper. Only he flipped ranches in Arizona, California and Oregon. I remember well the lean times when a flip went south on him. He would call a family meeting. We would sit around the kitchen table and he would say, “Girls, I need your help. Things are going to be a little tight for the next couple of months. We will have to postpone buying some things we want and only get the things we really need. As soon as we get through this little setback, we’ll be fine.”
Sometimes my Dad took me to a prospective ranch he was thinking about buying. Never once did I hear him say, “Wow, what a cute bunkhouse.” Or, “If I buy your ranch, do you think you could paint the barn? I’m really not into red.”
Only one thing mattered to my Dad, “Can I make money off this thing.”
I Welcome a Good Challenge.
Investors made up about 12% of my sales last year. Many of them were from out of state.
To be honest, there are three factors that make Austin real estate a bit daunting for investors: 1) Low inventory, 2) High property taxes, 3) Rising price points. As a result, I walk prospective investors through the challenges. I hear them say emphatically, “I want in on the Austin market.” I also hear them bemoan the conditions. As is often the case when it comes to real estate investment, creative considerations must be brought into the equation.
I Provide Local Resources.
Whether an investor needs a property management company or must hire skilled tradesman to repair property for renters or for flipping purposes, I’ve developed a reliable team able to meet the need.
I Offer Perspective.
