Hello! I live in San Diego and I'm selling my home this month and using the money to invest in Brownsville, TX. I found an agent to work with and a lender(for now). I need a good property manager though. It's a small town so I'm sure there isn't many options for property managers there or in the surrounding area. This will be my first investment and would prefer to have someone to manage the property because I want to buy a few places there this year. I appreciate any advice and information. Thank you!
You could try BREMCO (www.bremcoinc.com), they're a long stablished company in the area.
@William Nelson I use Joe De la Fuente with REMAX for 2 of my properties in Brownsville. Never had any issues.
@William Nelson I searched for Brownsville TX today on BP and your post seems to be the most recent. I heard of that town today and am wondering about it. I, too, am in CA and looking to do long distance investing. Do you mind sharing why you choose that location? I heard Elon Musk is investing there. Is there something coming there soon that makes this place good? Thanks for any info you may have.
@Heather Johnson Long story short. I read the book Elon Musk, by ashlee vance. After reading it and knowing how fast technology is moving, it's my uneducated assumption that around brownsville is going to need many more homes. With spacex being there, and elon finding ways to do whatever he thinks is better than any other human is doing, I can't not see a future in brownsville. Again, all this is just me assuming, but if he is needing 10,000 more jobs for Tesla over the next couple of years, then he is going to be needing even more jobs for space x to make his dreams a reality. You should read his book, and also The future is faster than you think by
Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler. Those two books will give you an inspiring vision for the future. Did you know we have drones that can plant 100,000 trees in a day? Crazy stuff.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I think that sounds like a pretty good lead to follow. I will continue to do my own research, too. If I find anything interesting, I will be sure to share it. I will check out that book, too.
I am not surprise anymore about the tech that's coming out. It is crazy what's being built. In fact, I find myself thinking why are we still doing anything manually anymore? :-) I saw a robot that can paint house interiors on "The Gadget Man" on Netflix. He also created a gadget for hanging wallpaper. I'd love an exterior house painting drone robot (since I live in a two story that needs to be painted currently!) We already have robots to vacuum the floor and mow the lawn, too. I can't wait until my first drone delivery from Amazon.
