This past week, MemphisInvest.com hosted over 60 real estate investors from around the country for two days of learning about truly passive real estate investing in Memphis, the "Done 4 U" model that Memphis Invest offers it's investor clients and the great city of Memphis itself.
With speakers and coaches traveling in from around the country and clients traveling from as far away as Hawaii, everyone was treated to two days of great seminars, inspirational talks and one fantastic day of traveling the city by bus to view Memphis investment properties.
A few even stayed in Memphis as extra day to visit Graceland!
J.D. Esajian from A&E's "Flip this House" helped focus the gathered real estate investors by giving insight into his companies ideas and criteria when investing in properties for long-term hold. By advising the real estate investors to focus on the basics of sound investing and doing business with a quality company, he was driving home a major theme of MemphisInvest.com.
"It's important that investors know how to determine the basics, the numbers that go into a good deal before they purchase an investment property" stated Kent Clothier. "Often times, especially for out-of-area investors, they have to rely on someone else to give them accurate, detailed information and over the last two days we've been able to show these investors who we are as people, as a company and what our vision for the future of Memphis real estate investing is. That goes a long way in earning trust and building credibility that the numbers we present are accurate and investing in Memphis properties with us, is a sound investment strategy".
After two days of reviewing properties and learning about how to invest in Memphis real estate, everyone returned home - some with new investment properties, some without, but everyone returned with a little more knowledge and excited for the future of Memphis real estate investing!
