Investors

Mr. Ken Allen introduced us into the rental business and he has managed our first rental property for us since winter 2010. Rental market in winter was slow. Ken knew the market very well because he was managing a large of number of rental properties for his clients. He was able to identify the right place for the ads and knew how to revise the ads to get high priorities during a search. More importantly, he was able to evaluate the candidates with an interest in our property. One interesting fact we learned from Ken was that the credit report did not mean much in this business. Ken was a good observer, and he was able to learn the candidate through casual conversations. Our first, and the only, tenant has stayed in our property for a year and half. We have never experienced any problems. Now, we are in the process to acquire the second rental property. Naturally, Ken will manage this one for us again when its contract is to be closed by December this year, 2012.

Buying property

Every investor has a different goal. Each goal is as unique as the investor. But goals often involve a combination of equity appreciation over time along with cash flow and income generation. Goals may also involve the use of leverage for increased return. The time horizon is different for everyone.

At Milestone Real Estate, Inc., we have the experience to work with first time or seasoned investors throughout the cycle of buy and hold real estate investment. We can estimate potential rental income and help you select property that meets your objectives.

We know what kinds of properties yield returns investors desire. We can evaluate and advise on the many variables of each potential investment property. If you looking primarily for long term equity appreciation, immediate cash flow, or a combination of both, we can assist you. Each profile of property is different with its own strengths.

Managing Property

How a property will be managed is an important discussion. We can walk you through what to expect related to tenant issues and how to plan for potential repairs down the road and what your legal obligations are as a property investment owner. If you plan to manage the property yourself, we can equip you with what you need. If you want to hire a property manager, we are experts in property management. We are glad to act as your property manager for properties throughout Boulder County and southwest Weld County. We are also often hired to manage property from clients who have been working with another company or have been self managing for a period of time.

As a property manager, our goal is to manage investment property in an efficient, friendly, and professional manner. We adhere to all fair housing laws. We look for the most qualified tenant for each property. We want investment property to be leased in the shortest period of time possible to keep vacancy rates low. We screen potential tenants, conduct a thorough tenant check-in for everyone’s benefit and manage property on an ongoing basis in a way that you can be proud of, always keeping the owner’s best interests in mind.

Selling Investment Property

At some point in the investment cycle, either because you are an accidental investor or it is just time to realize the gains of investment over time, it becomes time to sell an investment. Perhaps the purpose of the sale is to reinvest in something different using a 1031 tax deferred exchange. At Milestone Real Estate Inc., we are familiar with the specialized challenges of selling investment property. While the process is similar to selling owner occupied or vacant property, there are important differences, such as important legal terms of the current lease, and coordinating various details with an existing tenant.
