Through insightful leadership, the Little Rock economy has flourished and expanded. Overall market stability is increased with access to local, state, and federal government jobs.

After 119 days of renovations and $61,000, our Little Rock renovations team was able to improve this property inside and out. A new roof, new electrical panel, AC, water heater, furnace and garage, this home had a huge facelift. Our team also did a good cleaning on the inside, tearing down old wallpaper and carpet and replacing with crisp colors and vinyl plank flooring.

The investor for this property was in a unique position when he came to us at Memphis Invest. Another client referred them to Memphis Invest and after speaking with our team, we discovered that the buyer for this property was identifying properties for a 1031 exchange. If you're not familiar with a 1031 exchange purchase, we've written some previous blog posts that can explain more about how investors are able to use this purchase method for tax advantages.

Because our team is well versed in 1031 exchanges and their regulations, we were able to assist this buyer with multiple transactions and purchase methods while easily meeting 1031 qualifications and deadlines.

In fact, with this particular client, we helped them close on THIRTEEN properties in 2 months! With turnkey homes in Oklahoma, Dallas, and Little Rock, we were able to help them diversify their portfolio with different markets, and also diversify their purchase method using both cash and conventional financing.
