Visiting Cleveland, seeking advice & looking to network

4 Replies | Cleveland, Ohio

I am planning to visit Cleveland Aug 2-3. I would like to make the most use of my time in knowing the market and networking with real estate friendly professionals. If you are a wholesaler, contractor, property manager, loan officer, and other supporting professional please reach out to me and let me know if you are able to meet and chat.

My near term goal is to acquire residential properties, not to exceed $150K cash, that the BRRRR strategy can be applied. For single family houses, I plan to use the Homestyle loan for rehabs, for 1-4 units I will use my own cash, and finally I will also like to do market research on bigger properties not to exceed $1.2M. While I will not buy large properties immediately I do plan on moving into this space by next year unless something makes sense now.

Any advise on neighborhoods to visit or leads to professionals that support real estate investors please let me know. Thank you all for your time in advance.

 The suburbs on the East and West sides are going to get you the best and most stable income. I would stay clear of anything inner city. You have a lot more risk over there. Try looking at Euclid, South Euclid, Bedford, Cleveland Heights, Maple Heights, Parma, and Lakewood.
