Real Estate Investment
RPM is a full service brokerage. Whether you are buying your first home, selling a property, or looking for a real estate investment, The Reliable Team can help.
Every property is an investment. RPM has the market experience and knowledge to help your purchase and/or sell any property. We keep abreast of current market trends and frequently offer advice on the future of our clients’ investments. Clients looking for expertise in obtaining and selling rental homes (and not just looking for a nationally known sales sign in the front yard and big promises on high prices) come to RPM. As a property manager, we have handled rentals in Austin, Round Rock, Leander, Cedar Park, Hutto, Pflugerville, Manor, and Kyle. This means we know the rental markets in these areas. At RPM, you will find complete honesty and the expertise to manage and complete the entire sales cycle of your investment.
While sales and listings are generally the mainstay of most real estate firms, RPM specializes in the acquisition, sales and management of investment properties. This skill has been fine-tuned from years of experience. Aside from a superior knowledge of the rental market and areas of increased appreciation, we also provide a detailed analysis of an investment.
The Reliable Team has developed strong relationships with Real Estate professionals, mortgage brokers, insurance brokers, State-Certified appraisers and inspectors along with maintenance contractors, all of which provide you the best blend of services. After the sale, we are dedicated to leasing at a fair market rate; carefully screening and selecting qualified tenants and keeping your investment in good repair with minimal cost.
INVESTING IN THE AUSTIN RELEASE ESTATE MARKET
Investing in the real estate market takes a great amount of thought and planning. Investors tend to diversify their investment portfolio with real estate. While the stock market tends to be somewhat volatile, investing in residential real estate, over the long-term, tends to appreciate in value.
Many investors believe that a bigger investment risk will give them a greater return. This is not always the case in residential real estate. To minimize your investment risk, you need to analyze the location, amount of money to invest, and the potential returns. If these factors are properly weighed, the investment risk is usually less than other investment options making residential real estate a good investment.
WHAT IS YOUR INVESTMENT STRATEGY?
The first step towards your residential real estate investment is determining your investment strategy. In today’s market financing options may be uncertain and constantly changing. RPM is on top of the financing and works with experts in the field to keep abreast of what options are available to our investors. Before you purchase any real estate investment, you need to be asking yourself some very important questions. Can I qualify for a mortgage? What tax benefits can I expect from real estate investments? What is my holding period? How will a larger down payment affect my cash flow and return on my investment? At the end of the holding period, should I cash out or reinvest?
QUALIFYING FOR A MORTGAGE
Unless you are paying cash for your residential real estate investment, you are going to need to qualify for a mortgage of some amount. Although there is many mortgage bankers in the Austin area, RPM works with Mr. Shannon Smith who can be reached at 512-560-4590. Shannon can quickly and professionally qualify the investor for a loan and determine the amount the investor can borrow, the interest rate, and mortgage costs. To begin your mortgage qualification right now, give Shannon a call.
CHOOSING A REALTOR FOR A REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT
Unless you are a realtor with above-average knowledge of the Austin residential real estate market, you are going to need to find a realtor. RPM can offer you a unique perspective since we are also a property management company.
We know first hand the areas of the market that should appreciate at a rate superior to other areas because we manage real estate investments in all areas of the Austin market. As a property management company, we are constantly checking the comps to determine renewal and new lease rates for our rental properties. Also, we have first-hand knowledge of the rental market, monthly rent and vacancies as they pertain to different subdivisions around the Austin area.
RPM will provide you with an analysis of your investment from purchase through a 4-6 year holding period. This analysis can estimate the return on investment at the end of the period. RPM has the ability to not only successfully identify the property but also maintain that property in a professional manner for the duration of the investment.
