Here’s what we offer, and a brief summary of how it works.
1. PREVIEW AND OFFER STRATEGY
We send our team of agents on the road everyday looking at all the inventory that makes sense for landlords and retail flippers. We then use our team of offer writers who prepare offers on all these properties at the price we deem acceptable for the investment. We can typically write 5-20 offers a day for our investor clients. Most of these offers will be rejected because our purchasing formula is ultra safe. When an offer is accepted you can expect to get a home at 60-80% of value after repairs. Our client investor will provide us with a proof of funds, EMD deposit, buying criteria, signed Non-Exclusive Buyer Assistance Agreement, and execute a Power of Attorney for us to sign purchase agreements on their behalf. These properties come directly off the MLS and will always have a due diligence inspection period. During this time we advise our investor clients to hire an outside inspector prior to us building a scope of work and repair budget. Building your construction budget is a very unique service offered only at the "Real Estate Investment Firm LLC." This service is FREE to our clients. Like most real estate transactions the buyers agent is paid by the seller of the property so you don't pay us a dime.
2. TARGETED MAILINGS
We have developed a semi automated mailing system to target market to certain groups that maybe in need of selling a property fast. These people are often willing to sell their property for a substantial discount if the transaction can be closed quickly, without contingencies and for all cash. We run into these situations all the time and it creates a positive outcome for the seller and our investor buyers. These properties are only available to our clients. We don't wholesale these properties to the general public ever.
This is the most costly and time consuming process we use to acquire properties but it is also the most profitable by far.
Obviously, we have other means to acquire great investment properties for our investor clients but I can't give away all of our secrets here.
Keep in mind all of our agents are investor acquisition specialists so you are in the right place.
REHAB CONSTRUCTION SERVICES
REHAB CONSTRUCTION SERVICES
Our in house construction company "Inside Out Home Services LLC." performs all the repairs at a discounted wholesale price to all our clients that list with us. (We can finance your repairs too)
The fix process of a real estate investment is looked at in many different manors and standards from investor to investor. Some investors cut corners to increase profits and other investors increase quality to increase profits. Here at “Property to Profits” we truly believe in providing the best quality rental standards for paying tenants and the highest quality retail flips for qualified buyers. When we initially look at a property we put together a preliminary budget for the purposes of making an offer. After an offer is accepted we prepare a full detailed scope of work. Having a fully detailed scope of work will make for a lower chance of investment risk.
For a fee, we offer our investors and clients an itemized break down of all repairs that will need to be performed to achieve the desired investment outcome. This itemized break down is following our high standard* of quality and can be changed and altered to meet your standards. All prices on labor and materials can fluctuate based on choice of materials and performance of contractors. Construction Data forms are also available for sale.
* Our standard of replacement is based on a 50% lifespan left on mechanicals, 40% lifespan left on roof, and 80% lifespan left for structural and cosmetics. These standards can very house to house and the final choice is the owners.
Our construction thought process is based 100%on your return on investment (ROI).
MLS LISTING SERVICE
MLS LISTING SERVICE
There are many unconventional creative ways to sell any home but the most effective way is to correctly market your property on the MLS. The MLS sells properties based on market values and demand. Market values are directly determined by recent sales of similar homes of similar style and quality. Almost every Investment Property and “Fix and Flip” we have listed home has sold in the first 5 days on the market with multiple offers and will usually go over asking price if cleaned up nicely. Right now the demand for nice homes in the upstate is very high. Most owner occupied homes, if priced correctly will also see this same result but a vacant move-in-ready home is always the most attractive to home buyers. The end result of your property selling is directly influenced by the asking price in comparison to condition and upgrades.
Over 90% of home buyers start their search online so it’s important to be searchable and have a good clean presence. Our team has many different online and social media modules we use to promote our listings online. We also have an online and offline marketing plan that reaches out to buyers right away to create hype during the new listing phase.
After working with buyers of all walks of life. It’s easy to understand how buyers think when they make an offer. We know how to negotiate to get the most money and best contract terms. It’s all about understanding how to get a quality qualified buyer to make an offer and feel good doing so. Once a home is listed, the Realtors job starts. We monitor web traffic to all our listings, and provide our clients with feedback from showing agents and prospective buyers. We also closely watch the neighborhood for any competition that hits the market so the best choices can be made by our clients.
The price we list our clients properties is strictly based on their decision. We will supply the market analysis, statistics and facts that will help them make the right decision. We’re always here to give the best advise for selling your home for top value but the final choose is our client . The bottom line is any agent can list your home on the MLS. The question is can the agent you choose produce a contract of sale for your home that satisfy your needs and gets you the most money. At the "Real Estate Investment Firm LLC.” not only are “REALTORS”. All we do is buy and sell property. So if you’re looking to sell your investment property give us an opportunity to guide you. We know how help you capitalize on it. Let us show you how.

Chris helped me from losing money on 2 deals I tried to do myself. His team came in after these homes were on the market for over 3 months with no offers. Chris analyzed my homes and performed some value creating repairs then re-listed them. 1 home I choose to keep and have made over $25k in rental income and the 2nd home was sold right away. Since then I have been investing my self directed IRA with Chris and he has provided me with a stead increase in my portfolio. Thank you Chris for all you do. It is a pleasure working with you.
