When it comes to filling your properties, not all tenants are created equal. The best-case scenario for investors? Finding tenants who are looking for a long-term home, not just a place to stay for a few months or a year. Long-term tenants provide consistent income that you just won’t find if you have people moving in and out all the time. Let’s say you had two tenants a tenant who stayed in your property for a year and a tenant who stayed for two years. When you factor in all the costs associated with turning over a property from paying commissions to remarketing the property and finding new tenants to repairs to vacancy costs that year can literally mean thousands of dollars back in your pocket.

Article | April 7, 2021

Spring is here, and with it comes home buying season. If you’re in real estate, it’s about to get really interesting. There are also some unique challenges you and your buyers might be confronting in the market now. Let’s get to what you need to know. The housing market has been red-hot for quite a while now.
