Factoid: Institutional Buyers and Single Family Homes
A trend we’re seeing in Colorado and nationwide is institutional investors buying up single family homes. These types of buyers have traditionally stuck with large apartment buildings or multi family units, but now they’re buying single family homes in large quantities. Although it can feel hopeless for our investors to compete against autogenerated cash offers, Chelsea explains to us that there’s an advantage to being a conscientious, smaller landlord.
Check out the Institutional Investors Buying Up Single Family Homes in Colorado blog post to learn more about it.
Deep Dive: Portfolio Analysis
Our deep dive this week is a look at a Portfolio Analysis Chelsea recently did for a client. He currently owns four doors and wants to scale up to eight properties. Chelsea thinks it’s a great move to 2x your holdings and see how that feels before scaling up to even bigger amounts. She showed us how he can buy and sell some properties to meet his goals.
