What Makes DFY Different?
How are we exactly different from other Real Estate companies? Read on to find out.
We Hit Real Estate Singles
Instead of taking on tremendous risk and trying to financially swing for the fences with property flips, creative real estate techniques, or large syndicated deals, we have found that investing in conservative and consistent single family properties, 3 bed, 2 bath, 2 car garage homes in markets selected through research and analytics, in good neighborhoods that attract good long-term tenants is a far more conservative and ultimately more profitable then high risk, high turnover, and potentially high reward types of real estate.
We Practice Moneyball Real Estate
We help you hit real estate singles by doing 95% of the work for you. We find you the right property in the right market, finance the property, insure the property, fix-up the property, find you great tenants, then get the property rented out and managed for you; all while allowing you to keep 100% of the profits and benefits of owning investment real estate without all the headache and frustration of doing it on your own. The Moneyball strategy relies on hitting real estate singles, consistently, over 10 or more years. Moneyball real estate means you plan on owning each property you invest in for around 5 years before selling it, taking the proceeds, and buying additional real estate from the sale of your property; hopefully doubling your portfolio each time you sell one property to buy two more. We help you intentionally grow your investment portfolio one property at a time, over time, holding your hand year after year through every step of the process until you have achieved the level of income replacement that you seek.
On-Demand and Unlimited Inventory
Our Moneyball system relies heavily on our market teams who are on the ground in individual and very specific markets; who can find, access, and provide property inventory in a variety of ways. We are not beholden to the method of being forced to have liquid capital available for us to first purchase the real estate, then turn it around, fix it up, and resell it to you as many real estate investment companies do. Our inventory is on-demand, just in time, and relies heavily on a relationship based approach to utilize in-market real estate agents, the multiple listing service, and exclusive new construction opportunities with established home builders, so that no matter the inventory demand in any market area, we can provide a virtually unlimited supply to our clients based on their individual property acquisition needs or wants.
Multiple Markets Simultaneously
With Done For You Real Estate you can shop the same type of conservative and profitable properties in multiple markets simultaneously, instead of only gaining access to one single market at a time. We take a research based approach to helping you invest in the right market at the right time, and then help you know when it is time to transition out of one market and into another. We watch individual market trends and conditions, as well as larger economic cycles to help you know which markets are best to invest in at any given moment; regardless of what the current economic conditions might be.
Full Doc Pre-Approval
Any loan officer can pre-qualify you by getting an idea of your income, debts, and credit score. Instead of a fly-by pre-qualification, our mortgage brokerage, “Strategic Lending”, does a fully documented pre-approval for purchase. By having you fill out an application, upload your financial documents, and then work with our in-house pre-approval experts, when you have your pre-approval complete you are fully ready to qualify for a mortgage. This gives our market-based teams additional bargaining power as they look to find and win you excellent investment properties.
Increased Property Management Accountability
Oftentimes “turn-key” companies will own the property management company that is leasing out and managing the property for you. We do not own the property management companies we work with, but instead have a close working relationship with them. That means that in the event of an issue, frustration, or miscommunication, (which can be expected from time to time) instead of having to talk to the same company that is the potential cause of the frustration, Done For You Real Estate gets to act as a liaison, and intermediary between you and our property managers if need be. In addition, by having each of our property managers as independently owned and operated companies, it means they have an incentive to serve Done For You Real Estate clients, at a high level. If they do not adequately meet and fulfill the expectations we set for them, and that we’ve set with you, there are always other property management companies in town that would love to work with hundreds of extremely well qualified Done For You clients. That increased accountability, both on our part and theirs, will work in your benefit.
