No More Flips? RE Investors are now in Buy-and-Hold Mode

The real estate market is still dominated by distressed properties, and as opportunistic investors, we can’t ignore short sales, foreclosures, and defaulted note buying. One thing seems to be changing though. Whereas the preferred exit strategy used to be flipping a property or note for a quick profit, that strategy no longer works in many cases, due partly to new federal rules such as HAFA and HAMP, restrictions on same-day transactions, seasoning requirements, and general market factors.

A 'Perfect Foreclosure Storm' for Memphis Real Estate Investors?

By Chris Clothier on Mon, May 3, 2010

I found this great news article at Forbes.com that I thought everyone should read as soon as possible to get an insight into what is continuing to take place in the housing market.  There is a sense of relief being perpetrated in the media including right here in Memphis that the worst of the housing crisis is behind us.  Let's hope that is true, the worst is over.

Observations from a new Memphis Real Estate Investor

By Chris Clothier on Tue, Mar 30, 2010

It's not often that I let Marq out of his office and on an even more rare occasion that I let him write a blog!  But, I thought what the heck, he makes some good points and is actually writing in complete sentences.  I am actually kidding around here.  Marq is very intelligent and has helped hundreds of Memphis invest clients with building their Memphis investment property portfolios.  I trust him implicitly to take care of all of our clients and I think this blog post is a great illustration of how far he has come!

Why investing in buy & hold real estate is better than Wall Street

By Chris Clothier on Fri, Jun 12, 2009

Great article quoting Andrew Waite, Editor and Publisher of Personal Real Estate Investor Magazine, on the intricacies of investing in residential real estate and why most of Wall Street is missing out.  Often times, Wall Street wants to mold and package Real Estate Investing into a nice, neat and tidy package and analyze it as a stock or commodity.  Real Estate is both more complex and at the same time much simpler to understand.  You just have to know what it is your looking for!

I have included a good piece of the article here and you can link through to read the entire article.  Come back to me with any questions on how MemphisInvest.com is using the information and expertise of Andrew Waite and others, to fine tune our process.  We have long prided ourselves on being able to adapt to the needs of our clients, and staying in front of the trends in residential investment real estate in Memphis has been our calling card.

Why Wall Street is Missing the U.S. Housing Recovery
