What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?
For my first out of state investment, this met all my needs: in a state/city with growing population (Tampa), location in an up and coming neighborhood, 'rent ready', and reasonable cash flow.
How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?
Deal found on MLS - bought for $2500 less than appraised value.
How did you finance this deal?
Conventional Mortgage - 20% down
Lessons learned? Challenges?
Now that I have found people I can trust out of state, I have built more confidence to explore strategies that will bring me more value in deals.
Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?
Yes - Bryce Wade Realtor with OutFast Realty and Jeremy Kloter with OutFast Property Management were both fantastic people to work with especially for first time investors.
Nice work @Lindsey Mulvey ! I've been keen on the Tampa market, too, and I'm glad to see another OOS investor snagging some good cashflow in the Sunshine State!
Good Job! I'm glad you found people you can trust to work with here in Tampa. It's important to know the different areas because Tampa is so large.
Congrats @Lindsey Mulvey on the successful purchase.
Awesome Job! @Lindsey Mulvey , gotta love finding people you can trust OOS!
