That Passive Income Life

By Kate Smith, March 18, 2020

I recently had the pleasure of helping some of my very best friends through yet another real estate transaction. But, this one was different. This one was as an investment property. We found an incredible opportunity within a newly built community of single family residents and townhomes. Ultimately, investment properties have to pencil out in order for it for feel like it s a good financial decision. In the last few years, it has been challenging to find properties that can make an immediate profit as a rental, that also have strong resale value, and we found one! These townhomes are brand new (little ongoing maintenance), well priced (under $300,000), close to schools, parks, restaurants, shops, etc (in high demand for renters), and make a monthly profit in rents (the whole purpose for landlords). The other amazing thing, is my clients are able to provide a lovely and safe home for their future tenants. I believe in real estate as an incredible opportunity to find HOME, but I also believe it can be a great way to establish long term wealth while also helping others find HOME.

My philosophy about real estate is that I am here to help two parties (buyer and seller) find each other and complete a transaction as smoothly as possible. Buying and selling homes can be emotional experiences, and I am here to ensure you have a professional advocate to help you through the necessary steps. My job is to obtain the best price, terms and conditions for my client. I also believe real estate transactions are far more satisfying to both parties when closing is a pleasant experience for everyone, and my goal is to do everything I can to relieve the stress, and help problem solve through any issues that may arise. I pride myself on being a pleasant realtor to work with. I stride to always communicate respectfully, professionally and in a timely manner with all parties involved. I also take a personal interest in every client I work with. The sale and/or purchase of your home is as important to me as it is to you. That is my commitment to you! I look forward to helping make your next real estate transaction a pleasant and painless experience, and hopefully even a little fun!
