5 Reasons Memphis is Ideal for Out-of-State Investing

Posted by Chris Clothier on Fri, Oct 30, 2015

In the past, the rental markets that people clamored for were typically coastal cities. In the East, there was Florida and New York. The West had California’s many offerings, like San Francisco and Los Angeles. Undoubtedly, there’s some almost magical appeal about big markets like that. But investors, for a long time now, are taking advantage of alternative markets that have offerings that can make for just as much (if not more) success.

The big markets have grown so expensive that investing in them has become challenging to say the least, for all but the most affluent investors. The rent-to-price ratio just doesn’t add up in a favorable way for most real estate investors. Over the past several years, real estate investors are progressively looking inland for investment opportunities—and they’re finding them! 

For out-of-state investors, it’s vital to looking for that marriage of affordability and potential in the rental market. Out of the places you’ll find, Memphis, Tennessee is pretty high on that list.

Memphis Trends Mark Positive Real Estate Investing Waves

Posted by Chris Clothier on Sat, Aug 15, 2015


While Memphis might not be the biggest fish out there for real estate investing according to most, it doesn’t mean our great city doesn’t hold its own. Exciting economic opportunities are opening up in Memphis thanks to blossoming commercial and retail sectors.  This week, Dean Jernigan of Jernigan Capital announced plans to move the publicly traded companies corporate headquarters from Miami, FL. along with offices in Cleveland, OH. to the Poplar corridor in East Memphis.  This makes the 13th publicly traded company to headquarter in Memphis.  

This is great news for the business crowd in Memphis and made many stand up and cheer since Mr. Jernigan is no stranger to building huge companies in Memphis.   Along with some impressive gains in the housing market announced this week it is hard to be more excited.  While all markets have their ups-and-downs (Memphis real estate included), it’s hard not to get excited when you hear about what the local economy is cooking up.

We know, of course, that Memphis was named of the best places for millennials to be — and our great city is well on her way to proving it. From the opening of the Bass Pro Shops megastore in the iconic Memphis Pyramid to IKEA’s plan to plant a flag, the healthy and growing retail and commercial markets are playing a big part in the overall health of the economy: and in the performance of the real estate market.

Memphis Real Estate Picks Up for Homebuying Season

Posted by Chris Clothier on Fri, May 29, 2015

Welcome to the peak home buying season of the year! The first quarter of 2015 was sluggish in many real estate markets, Memphis included. The cold temperatures combined with lingering recession struggles and aftereffects of the market crash meant that things were slow to take off.  But now, it looks like Memphis real estate is in for an upturn.  One big reason...real estate investing!  As more and more are turning to renting a property rather than buying, the opportunity for real estate investors continues to grow.

Don’t get us wrong, the market wasn’t bad in the first quarter — homes were selling and home building was on the rise in Shelby County. There just wasn’t significant growth during the difficult months of February and March. By the same token, there wasn’t a decline in growth, either, which has lead to much optimism for the second quarter among real estate professionals.
