The Landlord's Guide to Indianapolis' Seasonal Rental Market

By Jeremy Tallman on Nov 3, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Having rented homes over many, many years, you could say we have a pretty good handle on the Indianapolis rental market. 

It’s our business to understand it, to track it and to plan for it.

And we do.  

If you own or plan to own rental real estate in Indianapolis, it’s critical that you, too, understand one inherent truth about the Indianapolis rental market: Seasonality.

Seasonal meaning there are times of the year when it’s really, really good to rent your home and other times where it can be difficult to rent your home.

We understand that our market isn’t necessarily unique - many, if not most, markets throughout the United States experience the same thing - but it’s important to understand this important reality.  

So, we thought we would spend some time discussing seasonality in the Indianapolis rental market.

Where to Invest in Indianapolis: Noblesville

By Devon L. Hicks on Oct 27, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Noblesville is a city just north of Indianapolis in Hamilton County and interestingly enough, it was the home to the area's first log cabin dwelling in 1802. 

William Conner and Josiah Polk laid out what is now Downtown Noblesville in 1823, which was designated as the Hamilton County seat in 1824, and incorporated in 1851.

The land was originally purchased from Native Americans.

The 3 Most Demanding Aspects of Self-Managing Rental Properties...and How a Property Manager May Be Able to Help

By Jeremy Tallman on Oct 20, 2019 10:00:00 AM

You may be rolling your eyes at the thought of a Property Management Company writing a blog about how hard self-managing rental properties can be.

We get the inherent and perceived conflict of interest.

But, to be fair, we've discussed in other blogs why property managers are definitely not the right fit for many Landlords, and that self-management can be the better option. 

However, there are some serious factors to consider when it comes to self-management, and we want you to be aware of those.

We've taken over management of numerous properties in the last couple of years - dozens and dozens, in fact - from Landlords who are just plain tired of self-managing.

And we can't blame them. 

Being a Landlord is a grind. We should know.

There are obviously pros to self-management - the main ones being full control over your investment, and no property management fees. 

But there are also some considerably demanding aspects that come along with it.

In this blog, we want to discuss 3 of the bigger challenges DIY Landlords face.

Should I Treat My Indianapolis Rental Property Like an Annuity?

By Jeremy Tallman on Aug 25, 2019 10:00:00 AM

I remember the conversation vividly.

We were on a conference call with a Real Estate consultant company a few years ago. 

This company’s main business was/is to attract investors to their platform and then help them buy property in Central Indiana, along with a few other markets around the Country.

Many of those Clients then used us to manage the homes. 

The President of the company was part of the call, along with all of his lead people.

Who the Company is isn’t important, because you likely haven’t heard of them.

At any rate, we were discussing various topics when he went into full sales mode…

“We preach to our Clients that real estate is the best investment of all.”

OK, I thought, I can get behind that statement. 

“Our Clients love cash flow.”

Who doesn’t, I thought. 

“And so, we tell our Clients that owning rental real estate is like owning an annuity: you get a set amount of money each month and then you also get the long-term appreciation. It’s the best of both worlds.”

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Real Estate is like an annuity?

In what world?
