Investing in Fresno, CA?

Hi all! Do any of you invest in Fresno, CA? If so - would love to connect and learn from you! I'm interested in long-term rentals, both turn-key and value-add (from touchups to total gut jobs).

About me: I'm a SFH + MFH investor in San Diego, CA (7 doors), Colorado Spring, CA (10 doors), and recently Columbus, OH (2 doors). I'm primarily interested in finding new markets to do value-add investing and BRRRR. Happy to share about those markets!

 Congrats on your recent Columbus, OH purchases! It's still a great place to find value add properties

Hey Taylor, I’m local investor in Fresno Market. Happy to lend an ear if you have any questions. Fresno and the Central Valley remains the affordable option for SoCal and NorCal investors that want to stay in CA!

Hi Taylor, I personally love Columbus Ohio and as someone who works with a lot of out of state investors - there's so many catalysts for why you should invest here. Specifically, there's job growth (Intel, Honda, Amazon, Nationwide, etc) and the population is growing (unlike Cleveland or Cincy). I really see Columbus Ohio as an extremely safe bet for the next 10-20 years. Plus, there's still so many positive cash flowing and 1% deals here in Columbus Ohio. Just a few weeks ago, I helped a client close on a deal getting them 20% cash on cash return. As a local investor and agent here in Columbus, let me know if you have any questions or want to connect!

Hi Taylor,

I live in Northern CA and bought my first property in Fresno earlier this year (triplex). I would be happy to chat and talk about the details/experience so far. I also invest in Las Vegas but recently have been struggling finding a multifamily deal that I like. I have been looking at Columbus or other Ohio markets as a possibility so I am also curious how that has been for you. 

Congrats on your success so far!

Turnkey Long term rentals can be found more in the mid-west market. I own a couple of those in the Cleveland market so you should definitely explore that market. Feel free to reach out if you want to connect!

Long time listener, first time caller.

My wife has family in the Central Valley and we're considering dipping our toes in this area for single or multi-family long-term rentals. Only getting started and hope to gain some contacts and start putting a team together.
