Great Property For First Time Investor

House Made of Money? Not Quite-But Still Good Stuff!

Sometimes when searching for investment properties for my clients, it is easy to get caught up in bigger projects, more units, and cash deals. Don’t get me wrong, there are great deals to be had here in the student investment rental market here in Fort Collins if you have the resources to invest in those types of deals, but not everyone is in a position to put $100k down on multi unit properties.

Sometimes it’s hard to hit cashflow targets when the price is low, because usually the rent is low or you have HOA fees eating into any potential profits. But sometimes you come across a property like the one here that is priced well within the reach of a first time investor ($134,900), and hits all of the cashflow targets we want in properties that are priced higher.

This property is an end unit townhome with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, close to bus lines, the Colorado State University Campus, grocery stores, Horsetooth Reservoir, and the foothills. Because of it’s large size, the rent would be at a premium for a townhome unit, and a relatively low HOA fees keep more of the monthly profits for you.

Investment Summary

Good News For Real Estate?? I’ll Take It!

It looks like what we have been seeing locally in the Fort Collins real estate market is beginning to be recognized nationally. We have been seeing a downward trend in pricing (although VERY slight compared to the national numbers) here in Fort Collins, and for the last year and a half I have had investors taking advantage of this in both single and multi family properties.

If you’re looking for your next home and plan on staying in it for a minimum of five years, or a mid to long term investment property, you can be snatching up the deals my clients have been in both privately and bank owned homes. Cash flow targets are easy to hit right now on investment properties with rates still being historically low, as well as prices being pretty reasonable.

Check out this CNN Money Magazine article for more information on how the national market seems to be experienceing some of the same great opportunities that Fort Collins has been representing for years! If you’re interested in seeing my list of top investment properties in Fort Collins right now, or are looking for your next home or know someone who is, please give me a call so I can help you. Have a great week!
