How Great Property Management Increases Profits

Getting profitable single family home investment deals is obviously important.

But managing the home renovation process well can increase profits.

Here’s how this works.

Experience Matters When Managing Renovation Projects

When it comes to managing single family home renovation projects, there are 3 big reasons why experience matters.

Scope of Work. Prior to acquisition (during the due diligence period), the scope of work is developed. Costs for labor, material, holding, and a budget for surprises is determined during the due diligence period.

WATCH: Here’s a video I made walking through a house during the early state of the scope of work.

Work Flow. The renovation of the property begins immediately at acquisition with dumpsters dropped off on-site and crews doing demo work. Every item in the scope of work is planned out in a logical order with vendors and trades scheduled in advance until the final punch out items are completed.

Sales Marketing. For me, marketing the property for sale begins right away. In fact, the marketing plan for the resale of the renovated home is in place during the due diligence period and is included in the management of the project. The listing goes live the day the professional photographs are delivered.

Managing any one of the above poorly increases risk and kills profits. Great management of the project reduces risk by turning the deal faster and increases the possibility of exceeding the minimal profit target.

Cherokee County Probate Court and Real Estate Sales

The Cherokee County, GA Probate Court has jurisdiction over the probate of wills and the administration of estates.

The Sale of Real Estate in Probate

When real estate of any kind is involved in the probate process, the property can be sold to liquidate the asset. The process of the sale may not be easy, depending on the property condition.

For example, a house that is well maintained and updated with modern design and cosmetic features can easily be sold by a real estate brokerage such as Innovative Properties Group / RE/MAX Town & Country.

However, houses in probate may not be in the best, up-to-date condition. This is true especially when someone has lived in the home for a long time and never remodeled the house. Houses with older roofs, HVAC systems near the end of their functional life-span, plumbing fixtures and appliances that have not be updated in many years, and even old light fixtures can greatly reduce the desirability for a homebuyer to purchase.

The Good News About Selling Property to Investors

Homes that are outdated – and homes in disrepair – are the types of houses that investors like to buy and they are motivated to buy right now.

Here’s the good thing about selling a property that’s in disrepair or outdated to investors: the process is very easy and can be very fast too.

Selling Your Estate Property to Investors

The first step to selling to investors is easy. Just contact a local real estate investment company in Cherokee County.

When you contact me, I’ll listen to your situation and meet up with you at the property. Or with your permission, I can go take a look myself if the property is vacant and accessible.

After I walk through the house, I’ll be able to make you an offer to purchase the property in any time frame that works best for you. My company will buy quickly (in 2 weeks or less) or we can arrange for the sale to take place at a later date (1 to 12 months later or longer). Whatever is best for you.

Sell Fast Now vs. Planned Future Sale

What are the pros and cons of selling your house to an investor for fast cash with quick sale compared to planning the sale in the future?

Fast House Sale Benefits

With a fast sale, you can get cash now and be finished with the property. It’s that simple.

Investors can close on your property in 30 days or less, many times it can be 10 days or less! It’s virtually and instant purchase of your home or land.

The advantage to a fast sale is that you get cash quickly and you end the ownership of your property. If the property has been a problem for you, the problem is gone with a quick sale.

Planned Future Sale Benefits

In contrast, a long-term, planned sale of your property to an investor can give you peace of mind that the house is sold and that the transaction will take place at a longer-term future date. This may be a better option for you.

A planned sale at a future date means that the seller can continue to use the property. As a seller, you cant take any time needed to get everything in order to move out or take care of other things while waiting for the sale date.

The key to the long term, planned sale, is to get a commitment from the investor buyer in the form of a signed purchase contract. The contract will state the agreed upon price and terms of the offer, including the date in the future that the transaction will be completed.

Atlanta Estate Liquidators

Estate sales usually sell personal property inside the home.

The sale of the home and land itself requires a real estate broker in most cases.

Estate Sales

Estate sales are organized and run by someone who understands how to determine the value of personal property and set a price for each item. No special licensing is required, but an experienced company will have knowledge of many different types of personal property.

If the estate sale manager is not knowledgeable about specialty items, such as antique coins, artwork, automobiles, etc., they will know someone who is an expert. They will consult with the expert to determine a price of the item.

Selling a House, Land and More

Estate liquidation is comprehensive. It’s not limited to personal property.

If real estate and stocks are a part of the estate, then licensed professionals are often required. These experts include an attorney, accountant, stock broker, and local real estate agent.

A local real estate agent or broker will price the sale of a home and market it to potential buyers. It’s best to find a broker with experience in the sale of property during probate and other circumstances where the liquidation is mandated by the courts.

Out-of-Date or Distressed Homes

Estate liquidation happens under different circumstances. Sometimes a house that has out-of-date features, deferred maintenance, and in need of repairs will have to be sold “as-is”. This is why real estate investors are potential buyers of houses and land when an estate is liquidated.

Investors are buyers who can close quickly and pay cash resulting in nearly immediate liquidation — a virtual instant sale the property!
