New to Columbus OH Investor

9 Replies

Hi, 

I'm a health care professional in Oregon with developing real estate skills. I have two multifamily apartments and one commercial building. These are all long term holds for me. I'm looking into developing a few more long term holds, providing good housing to the Columbus community and building some financial security along the way.  

I look forward to developing a strong team in central Ohio where we can all profit together! 

Thanks

Hello @Oliver Leonetti . My biggest advice for a new out-of-state investor is to be aware that Columbus is an appreciating market. Many out-of-state investors come to Columbus and get discouraged that they cannot find the cash flow deals like they can in Cincinnati and Cleveland. If you look at the population growth and job market you will be able to tell why.

@Oliver Leonetti Welcome to BP I'm a realtor in Columbus and I would happ to help and I also have some connection in other cities in ohio was well. But they would be would longer time for the city to come back like Detroit.

@Oliver Leonetti Welcome to the site. Sounds like you have a good base for investing already...and a plan on where you want to be in Ohio, anyway. There's a lot to learn about Columbus...very dynamic and fast moving market. Are you focused on asset class?...returns?...safety?...location?...or something else. A few of us local guys could at least point you in the right direction to start your research with a bit of clarification on what you're after. 

Best of luck
