Looking for someone with Cleveland Experience

9 Replies

Hi all.  I'm planning a trip in a few weeks to scope out Cleveland and surrounding areas for possible investment.  Im interested in meeting up with someone who knows the area and potentially interested in possible partnerships etc.

I've read a lot of things about the Cleveland area being in the top 2 of cities that has not recovered from the great recession of '08, and that the city hasn't done enough to diversify the economy away from manufacturing etc.   

Curious what your thoughts are.  I know Amazon is coming to the area etc, but really need to dive in a bit and do research.  I've seen the Holton WIse guide to the neighborhoods, but I am curious what these color codes are based on?  What makes the A neighborhood more desirable than the yellow or red one right next to it?

Anyone interested in spending a half a day with me early November?

Half a day is a pretty big time commitment, but I'd be glad to grab a coffee and talk about Believeland with you. There's a lot of fun stuff going on over here.

That's awesome that you're heading out there to see it for yourself. I always encourage people to get on the ground in a city like that where things are so "block-by-block." 

I think you'll only really realize what the color codes mean once you see it for yourself. There are literally $1m+ mansions just a couple blocks away from war zones full of properties with caved-in roofs or dozens of bulldozed houses on the same street. I can't speak for @James Wise who put the map together, but I assume it's a combination of the quality of tenant, rent range, property value, rental demand, etc. A neighborhoods are where you move to when raising a family on a good salary because that's where you want to live long-term. F neighborhoods are where you go when your credit, income, etc., are so bad that you can't afford to live somewhere else. F neighborhoods are where you own 3 pit bulls and don't go out at night. 

My properties aren't in the nicest of areas, but they're not bad either. The tenants I have are awesome and the numbers make sense. 

@Rob D.

Enjoy your visit. Feel free to PM me any questions you may have about the Cleveland area market.

Amazon is coming to the area? Thats news to me, though I know that they put in a bid for HQ2.  

I would be happy to talk to you about Ohio and Cleveland, though most of my expertise is in the Cleveland area, but more specific to other parts of NE Ohio.  

That being said, if you are in MA I would be happy to meet up with you before you go to give you some background.

Cleveland is really changing these days (for the better) There has been a lot of development/reinvestment in the downtown and suburbs alike. Now is a great time to invest. Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions, happy to help!

The city did put in a bid for HQ2, but we are getting two (2) Amazon distribution centers. One in Euclid and the other in North Randall (Near Bedford) They are going to provide around 4,000 jobs to the surrounding communities.

I am also open to a cup of Coffee or lunch. I am a new investor, but lived in NE Ohio all of my life. I will send you a connection request.

 Thats what I thought he may be talking about.

It's all about RISK. Less risk in A neighborhoods compared to B and C. Home prices are more expensive, more own occupants Vs investors/tenants
