If you've been an investor for any period of time, you know the importance of choosing the right things.
The right Realtor.
The right property.
The right Property Manager.
The right vendors.
Etc., etc., etc.,
These individuals and companies can make or break your investment experience. It's important to get into business with people who know what they're doing and have your best interest at heart.
We help investors buy and sell properties every week, so we've been around the block when it comes to working with Indianapolis businesses.
Today, we thought we would help take some of the guesswork out of who you should hire to be on your Indianapolis investment team.
Based off of years of experience, we're giving you our top recommendations for Home Inspection Companies, Lenders, Title Companies, and Home Insurance Providers, so that your rental property buying process goes as smooth as possible.
Top Indianapolis Home Inspection Companies
Here at T&H Realty, we strongly recommend that all of our investors have a home inspection conducted before purchasing a property. Whether it's your first time buying a home, or your 50th, without an inspection, there's really no way to fully know if everything is working properly and up to code.

Top Indianapolis Lenders
As we're sure you know, a good lender can be the difference on whether you have a smooth, or chaotic, closing. If you are a new investor, it's critical to establish a relationship with a high-performing lender. Once you've established a relationship with a good lender, and they develop a file on you, doing multiple deals will be much easier.
A quick note about NMLS numbers from the Nationwide Licensing System:
"The NMLS Unique Identifier is the number permanently assigned by the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System & Registry (NMLS) for each company, branch, and individual that maintains a single account on NMLS. The NMLS Unique Identifier (“NMLS ID”) improves supervision and transparency in the residential mortgage markets by providing regulators, the industry and the public with a tool that tracks companies and individuals across state lines and over time."
NMLS Number: 863003
- Cross Country Mortgage
NMLS Number: 373026
Top Indianapolis Title Companies
Like a mortgage company, connecting with a top-flight title company will make your life easier.
Solid title companies will ensure that you are informed off all the various stages in the closing process, will work closely with your lender to ensure closing dates are met, and can help you understand any issues regarding the title that may be of concern.
Top Indianapolis Home Insurance Providers
If you've read any of our other insurance blogs, you know that we take it very seriously. Protecting yourself, your tenants, and your investment should be one of your #1 priorities as a Landlord. We require all Tenants to carry renters insurance and strongly advise all Owners to carry the proper Landlord insurance.

There are a LOT of options out there for you to choose from. You can spend hours sifting through reviews and websites, but the fact is, we have personally worked with all of these people. We wouldn't recommend them if we didn't have the utmost confidence in them.
