|Our mission statement: To help clients purchase investment real estate by facilitating the process from beginning to end.|
|Where to Invest U.S. was founded on the principle that many people were convinced of the merits of owning investment real estate, but taking the first step of actually doing it was so intimidating and time consuming that it kept people from investing. For those that had the time and initiative to start the process, the obstacle of knowing the best type of real estate to purchase, where to purchase and when to purchase were large obstacles to overcome. With the objective of helping people accomplish their goal of investing in real estate, Where to Invest U.S. was born. With experience in land development, multi-family limited partnerships, single-family investments, new construction, lending, and property management, the Where to Invest U.S. team set out to help others to do what the principals have done personally.A network of professionals was created that would represent the investor in finding the right property, finding the right loan, and finding the right tenant. The hands-on support structure helps with many of the hassles and headaches of purchasing investment real estate, from those that had never done it before to seasoned investors with millions in assets.Because the Where to Invest U.S. team looks for properties throughout the 50 states, new markets create new opportunities at different times. This also enables investors to diversify their real estate purchases geographically. While some markets may be subject to price corrections because of the length of their growth cycle, other markets are just starting to grow. While some markets offer foreclosures, other markets with higher growth work well with purchasing new construction. Diversifying by asset type is also possible. Many Where to Invest US investors are now rolling some of their large residential gains into commercial and multi-family assets that generate large cash flows.Where to Invest U.S. also incorporates associated professionals to help with 1031 tax-free exchanges, creating LLC´s and other corporate entities, tax preparation, legal plans, self-directed IRA´s, trust creation, and credit repair.We have also negotiated favorable rates with our property managers and 1031 exchange accommodators for the benefit of the investor.
