Real Estate: Memphis Economy Feeling The Impact of Electrolux

By Chris Clothier on Wed, Jul 18, 2012

Local firms have felt the initial impact of Electrolux moving to Memphis to the tune of $64 Million in contracts

When Memphis Invest, GP travels to different parts of the country meeting with investors, one of the first suggestions we make is to forget about the houses for the time being and concentrate on the market.  More to the point, concentrate on the economics of the market and the fundamentals of that economy.  Memphis and even Dallas, which is our newest market (more on that later) both have strong economic prospects.  Once an investor has identified that the market they are studying, then the team and investment property decisions can be made.

Memphis Investment Real Estate | Memphis Jobs Update

By Chris Clothier on Mon, Mar 5, 2012

Memphis Firms Continue Expansion Plans

Several Memphis companies are continuing with plans to expand operations, invest in new equipment and infrastructure and hire new employees.  While there is still some economic uncertainty, there also seems to be an air of optimism surrounding plans by companies headquartered and operating in Memphis for an economic turn-around.  That turn-around is fueling plans for increased warehousing and distribution needs.  We are often asked about the real estate landscape in Memphis and investing in Memphis property has as much to do with the economic outlook as it does the house itself when it comes to long-term success.  Investors should be looking for areas of the country that are stable and reliable when it comes to the greater economy as that will be a sure driver for real estate demand.

Real Estate Investing | Hot Deal of the Week? I Don't Think So...

By Chris Clothier on Wed, Nov 30, 2011

We get asked all the time why we don't send out emails to our entire list of the latest and greatest deals that we have available.  That is, after all, the traditional way wholesalers sell their properties. They spend a lot of time getting as many emails as possible, throw those email addresses into an email tracking system and start pounding that list with everything you get under contract.  When I get asked why we don't send out houses by email I give two easy answers:
