Investor Competition Heating Up – Time for Turn-key Rentals?

Scott Lukes - Monday, November 20, 2017
Competition for Denver residential single-family investment homes, at least at the wholesale level, has picked up dramatically in the past 2 months. We understand this is due largely to a massive amount of out-of-state money moving in, making cash offers, sight unseen with no inspection contingencies. It is very hard to compete with this, though Echo Summit is still having success via its network of investors.

Given this phase of the market, it is probably time to start thinking about purchasing turn-key rental properties, and aiming for cash flow, rather than short-term cash-on-cash return. Obviously, almost any property held for a minimum of 5 years will produce some form of cash-cash return based on appreciation alone. What I am a suggesting is to focus away from the masses who are hoping for quick returns on a wholesale flip, and target areas/property types that they are not.

Without getting into the boonies, I recommend focusing on transportation corridors (SSE is off the charts) and anything feeding into the Cherry Creek School District (for those of you who don’t know what bond proposals 3a and 3B were for in recent elections… study up. They passed, and will have significance for property valuation in the coming years).
