Hey BP, I'm looking to invest in the Columbus Georgia/Phenix City Area because of the low barrier of entry. I'm looking for someone who has invested there before and has an idea of what neighborhoods are best for rentals. I'm also looking for property managers that have worked with out-of-state investors and can give me a good idea of rent rates.
Kyle hosts a good monthly meetup at https://calendar.google.com/calendar/event?action=VIEW&eid=MGluZGJ0M2Eya3A3c3IycHFvbWpxcXR1NzMgZ2xlbnp1ZmZAeWFob28uY29t&tok=MjMja3lsZS5hLmlzYWFjc0BnbWFpbC5jb20yOTMxY2U5NWE4OGE2NDM2MDQ1YzIzNDJlNmZlZjNiMmU4NmM3NGNi&ctz=America%2FLos_Angeles&hl=en&es=1 There are also a couple facebook groups. Best is https://www.facebook.com/group...
I have only been investing there a year. I use Bickerstaff Parham. I was just talking to a commercial broker this week that uses https://www.columbusgaproperty...
I don't know the neighborhoods enough myself. I have a $22K 2BR house in the South that rents for $475. 2BR condos at https://www.eagleandphenix.com... are $400K. I bought a HUD auction 4/2 built in 1995 for $102K +$12K repairs near Fort Benning. Rents for $1295. Good luck. Maybe I'll see you on the meetup.
@Glen Zuffelato thank you so much for the info, I hope to talk to you soon.
@Glen Zuffelato how did you find your properties?
Hi Cody. I normally use zillow or realtor.com. My first columbus house was from auction.com. I then bought 3 each $25K 2BRs that my new property manager was selling. I'm no Columbus expert, but more than happy to talk sometime. Apparently BP won't let me post phone or email, but you can find me on facebook.
@Glen Zuffelato Hi Glen. How do you like Bickerstaff as your property manager so far? Any issues? Also, did the commercial broker indicate PMI was a good property manager? I'm currently looking for a solid property manager for single family homes in the area. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
