For Indianapolis real estate Investors, there are many factors to consider when analyzing a deal. 

A factor you may or may not have considered, is if a property is being sold as-is. 

At some point, those two little words may have raised a red flag in your brain to run the other way, and understandably so.

Leasing Your Indianapolis Rental Home During the Covid-19 Crisis

By Jeremy Tallman on Mar 28, 2020 11:00:00 AM

Every Monday, we meet and discuss, among other things, the previous week’s rental marketing activity. 

We discuss our showing levels.

Number of applications we processed.

Leases we signed.

And a host of other stuff.

All these Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) give us a good sense of the health of the rental market in Central Indiana. 

Admittedly, this past Monday, I wasn’t excited about reviewing the previous week’s numbers. Given all the turmoil in the world right now, I was convinced we would see a sharp downturn in our numbers.

And… I was totally wrong.

Showings? Up.

Applications? Very strong.

Leases Signed? Right in line. 

Hmmmm…….

Now, clearly, we took a big turn last week here in Indianapolis, as our Governor announced a “stay at home” scenario that will last until April 6th. 

So, we’ll see if showing levels continue to stay strong.

But, how do we explain why showing numbers and general rental activity continue to show strength?

Tales of an Indianapolis Landlord: The Big Purchase “Mistake”

By Jeremy Tallman on Mar 9, 2020 11:00:00 AM

We provided a nice “State of the Indianapolis Real Estate Market” during last week’s blog.

It’s not a secret… buying rental real estate in this market is tough. 

And, frankly, it has been for a few years now.

Our brokerage group works hard - every day - to find deals.

We write a lot of offers and, more times than not, we get outbid. 

Losing out on properties is part of the territory. Our job is to continue to provide opportunities for our Clients, which educating them along the way.
