Memphis Invest Turnkey Transformation of the Week!

Posted by Chris Clothier on Tue, Jul 9, 2019

This week's 'Turnkey Transformation' comes from Memphis, TN. As many of you may know, Memphis is where we  started in the turnkey business over 15 years ago. We're so proud to call Memphis our home town, and headquarters and we encourage real estate entrepreneurs to always get to know the communities they are investing in.

While getting to know a city's statistics about population and job growth are certainly very important, there's a lot to be said when you learn more about the actual community that your property belongs to. For many real estate entrepreneurs, there's a sense of connection and pride, which only makes you even more devoted in your overall investing goals!

Here's a list of blog posts where you can learn a little more about the cities we invest in and belong to:
