Examples of Homes T&H Manages in Avon, Indiana:
We helped a current client purchase this 4 bed/2.5 bath hom in Avon for $164,900 and it should lease in the $1,300-$1,400 range.
So as you can see, the cash flow isn’t there. This is an appreciation play.
We no longer manage this home, but it was purchased for $164,990 in 2009. We managed it up until 2018 when we sold it for $218,000.
We had it rented several times throughout the year at rates ranging from $1400-$1650.
So, again, appreciation is the name of the game.

This is based off of a scale of 1-100 where 1 is low crime and 100 is high crime.
As you can see, Avon is a great place to be and a great place to own property.
With it’s highly rated schools, quality tenant pool, and relatively low crime rates, it’s a no brainer.
The catch is it’s not cheap to purchase homes there. Similar to Greenwood, if you are looking for long term appreciation and a solid investment, Avon is a great option.
If you’re main goal is cash flow, I would suggest moving on to other areas such as Lawrence Township or Anderson.
