Our Business Model

Our overall investment strategy and specialty is to purchase properties that require repair, renovation or a value-add opportunity, to ultimately result in selling those properties to retail homebuyers and landlords.


Our core business lies within our systems, education and knowledge of the real estate industry. We did not just watch a YouTube video and become a real estate investor overnight. We have spent thousands of dollars in the education of how to be successful in this business and do it the right way the first time.




Our Business Strategy

We purchase properties that need repair/renovation or a value-add opportunity. Buy them below current market value through various purchase strategies. We then renovate and sell these properties to retail buyers and landlords.


We Follow A Strict Due Diligence Process

We have a systematic and disciplined approach when purchasing investment properties, putting each potential investment through a strict due diligence process. This rigorous set of criteria includes, but is not limited to, the following:


• Comparable property analysis and examination by a certified, independent appraiser

• An economic study of the neighborhood, city planning and development

• Demographics of area, marketability, and growth potential

• Statistics on the crime rate • Public transportation and schools

• Overall condition of the property, including heating and air, plumbing, electrical, roof and structural condition




Competitive Advantage

Most homeowners have no idea what options are available to them beyond listing a house with a real estate agent or just trying to sell the house on their own and hope for the best. We provide homeowners with a unique alternative to listing their house on their own or with a real estate agent. Our “out of the box” creative approach to real estate investing gives us a competitive advantage.
