Great Contractors make Memphis Invest look really good

By Chris Clothier on Tue, Jun 29, 2010

Mark Anderson, MemphisInvest.com

For all you Memphis real estate investors out there, tell me if you’ve heard this before.  “You make your money when you buy.  You realize it when you sell.”  Heck, I guess it doesn't matter if you are a Memphis investor or where you're located, that advice holds true almost anywhere you are investing.  It’s hard to dispute this sage advice passed down by those who’ve gone before us.  But a lot happens between the time you buy and the time you sell, and most of it involves contractors.  For many beginning investors, finding a good team of contractors is one of the toughest tasks to completing your first deal.  At MemphisInvest.com, some of our own clients came to us because they struggled so much with finding responsible, reliable and reasonable contractors.  Indeed, some of the worst real estate horror stories you will ever hear involve contractors, which is why this is such an important topic.

Will Federal assistance help Memphis real estate investing?

By Chris Clothier on Wed, Nov 18, 2009

I found a great article from RISMEDIA on line detailing how the tax credits work and thought I would share it with everyone while also giving my take on how the tax credit can help investors.  I have been asked several times over the last couple of weeks if the tax credits would help with the Memphis investment real estate market.  I think it can if investors are smart with how they try to utilize it.  Whether selling an existing property to a tenant or purchasing a new property for fix n flip, investors need to be realistic with how much play they will actually get from the program.
