    Hi Ali,
    I got here through BP. I like what you are doing here. Do you have any buyers interested in Multifamily turnkey? I have a partner that has a 16 unit right above Kennesaw, GA for under $600,000. I can send you full info if you have anyone including recent inspection sheets, rent roll, and ROI.

    *Rental potential equals 1% of the purchase price at a minimum (2% or more is a BIG +)

      Hi Luis, thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately I don’t have access to properties that meet you criteria as we don’t deal with properties needing work, only turnkeys. Turnkeys won’t be 60-70% below ARV either, they will be at or above ARV in Atlanta due to a broken appraisal system there. Typically there are not investment properties readily available in Cobb, Rosweel, or Alpharetta due to high prices in those areas which knock out cash flow potential. Douglasville is a great area for investment properties but not sure how high their schools rank, but either way we only work with turnkeys out there that won’t hit your numbers. Sorry!
