So, you are all signed up, set up, and you have a vacant property.

Vacancy, as we discuss over and over, is the single biggest drain on an investor’s return.

We’re on the same page with you, and our goal is to get the property in rent-ready shape and on the market as soon as possible.

Let’s spend some time reviewing our processes whenever we take over management of a vacant property.

Inside T&H: Taking Over Management of an Occupied Home

By Jeremy Tallman on Nov 18, 2018 10:00:00 AM

Now that you are a Client of ours, how we initially proceed is dependent on the occupancy status of the home.

Prior to 2017, almost all the homes we placed under our management were vacant. Occasionally, we picked up occupied homes, but not often.

However, that’s all changed.

Now, a significant portion of homes we take on are occupied… generally from other management companies in Central Indiana.

As a result, we’ve created detailed processes on the proper way to onboard an occupied property.

Bottom line: We’re pretty good at it.

Inside T&H: Becoming Our Client

By Jeremy Tallman on Nov 11, 2018 10:00:00 AM

At T&H Realty, we strive to be totally transparent with our Clients and prospective Clients.

One of our core values is “Always Educating and Advising.”

Generally, this starts well before we even speak to potential Clients.

As you may know, our website is LOADED with information… from our detailed pricing breakdown, as well as other informative, insightful content.

In an effort to further facilitate this mission, we have decided to produce a series of blogs detailing the inner workings of our company. You can expect to see topics on everything from how we handle move-ins and security deposits, to how we handle evictions and turnover work.

We want our current Clients to have a firm understanding of our processes, and prospective Clients to know what we’re all about even before signing with us.

So, let’s start at the beginning… “Becoming our Client.”

How Does the Marion County Sheriff Sale Work?

By Jeremy Tallman on Sep 30, 2018 10:00:00 AM

This is a topic I’m shocked has taken us so long to blog about.

We’ve been attending the Marion County Sheriff Sale since 2005.

And - wow - do we have stories to tell.

Lot’s of them, which we may decide to do in future blogs.

But, to start, I thought I would use this blog to discuss the basics of the Marion County Sheriff Sale.

Sort of a “Marion County Sheriff Sale for Dummies” blog.

Note: I’m obviously not a lawyer, not an expert on foreclosures, so I’ll provide a VERY basic overview of the process.

Tenant's Rights Prevail: Buying a Tenant-Occupied Indianapolis Rental Property

By Jeremy Tallman on Sep 9, 2018 10:00:00 AM

If you are like most investors out there, my guess is you spend a lot of time reviewing MLS listings.

I’ll also guess that you’ve run across some language in an MLS description that includes a phrase, “Tenant’s rights prevail.”

Here’s an example of a description I found on our local MLS system…

"Investor alert! Check out this spacious and updated ranch on Indy’s west side. Home went through a complete remodel 6 months ago, including new roof, HVAC, kitchen and bathroom updates. Home is Tenant occupied. Tenant’s rights prevail.”

Now, as you know, or as you should know, Tenants do have certain rights when living in a property, including...

  • The right to quiet enjoyment
  • The right to occupancy
  • The right to a habitable home
