Guy Keren
Posted Mar 4 2024, 06:06

Hello everyone!

New to DFW and I would love to hear your advice.

We concentrate on buy & hold, typically 150K - 200K PP, at least 1,000 sqft.

In which areas do you think we can enter the market?

Relevant agents please contact me.

Thank you.

@Guy Keren whats going on man,

I am a Realtor here in Fort Worth. I have 1 rental via house hack that we lived in for 2 years and slowly increased the value over the 2 years. Now it cash flows about $350 per month and I am the PM on that property. Welcome to BP!

If you need contacts for any vendors let me know I'm happy to help

@Guy Keren most of the properties in those price points will either put you west or south Fort Worth and East or south of Dallas. Best of luck investing

I would be looking at Stop Six area and Poly in Ft. Worth.

I'd also be looking at areas around Ft. Worth.  Burleson and Crowley if you can find anything.  Cleburne for sure.  Occasionally see places in Weatherford, Azle, and Bridgeport.  I'd have Decatur on the radar.

Maybe Casa View area of Dallas.  Maybe Waxahachie.

Any of you familiar with the Stephenville area? Kind of out in the middle of nowhere, but my son just started college at Tarelton and we live in CA, so its on my radar now...university has plans for big growth in the next 5-10 years.

 Hi @Ned J. ! I just invested on a STEPHENVILLE SFH. I did not know about the uni growth plans so it looks even better now. If you have any more interesting info please let me know :)

cheers

@Guy Keren

I've got 18 SFR in the DFW area and target the 150-200k range homes that don't need much work. Mine are all in Grand Prairie, Arlington and Fort Worth in C+ class hoods. Average rent around 2k/month which is cheap out here. I like to buy in central locations near the downtowns and major freeways. I've bought most of mine off the MLS, but have found a few off market or from wholesalers. Good luck!

@Ned J.   I like Stephenville, but maybe not for investment.  I don't feel like it is in the growth
trajectory of the metroplex yet.   It's really a small town.   I'm not typically a fan of renting to students.  There's probably opportunity everywhere if you look for it and come across the right deal, but I don't hear investors beating down the door trying to get into Stephenville.

Three things to look for to be in the path of progress:

1.  Population Growth

2.  Job Growth

3.  Employment/Economic Diversity/Demand Drivers

Now if you can buy a house let's say 4-5 bedroom and have your kid live in one for 4-5 years and is the kind of kid who is responsible and a hard worker and a good networker and can keep the bedrooms rented for the next 4-5 years, there certainly could be an opportunity there.

Hello @Ned J. I live in Stephenville, I'm a full time investor here. I use to live in Escalon California. If there is anything I can do help you please reach out. What street did you buy your SFH on?

I like HEB and NRH and RH probably better than Arlington.  I'm guessing in general a little better schools, different workforce, and less crime.  I've lived in Euless and my mom used to live in Bedford.
