Real Estate Newsletter – September 2018

Thoughts from Diana

I can’t believe it’s September already; where has the year gone? This month we have a great article from Joe Russo on Vetting a Property Manager, Joe has a world of experience and tips to share with you. Good management can make or break a rental unit. Another important aspect of owing rental property when buying a personal residence or doing a fix and flip is location. My article covers a few of the top things I think you should look for when choosing that location.


By Joe Russo

There are many reasons that people seek to hire property management companies. Perhaps you are just starting out and want to learn the ins and outs of property management from professionals. Perhaps you have multiple units that take up too much of your time which you wish to devote to other areas of your life such as more family time, or whatever the reason may for wanting to utilize your time more effectively.



By Diana Hill

We’ve all heard the old saying: Location, Location, Location….. Often what “Location” refers to are the positives of the neighborhood, for example: is it by water, are the streets tree lined, does it offer parks and green space, how are the schools? These are just a few of the criteria that affect property value. You may ask why, as an investor, are these things important to me? Isn’t it just all about the bottom line and the profit? Well, these criteria can have a direct effect on that bottom line.Tweet: Factors that affect property value can also affect an investors bottom line. It can take longer to sell a house in an undesirable neighborhood than a desirable one as well.
