Multi-Units & Investment Properties
We at Maine Realty believe that the greatest, tried, and true vehicle for the average person to obtain above average wealth is through the acquisition of investment real estate. Not all investment properties are rentals- some can be development deals, buying single family homes to flip, or buy and hold. While we can appreciate that some people dream of owning a single family home, we also know from personal and professional experience that first time home buyers who use their first purchase to obtain an owner occupied multi-family of 2-4 units are making a decision that can change the course of their lives forever. Maine Realty has helped many clients buy owner occupied multi-families as their first purchase. The beauty of this strategy is that you are taking advantage of one of the greatest wealth building opportunities – all while having someone else pay the lions share (or more) of your housing expenses. Programs such as FHA and FHA 203K programs offer a significant way for first time home buyers to purchase multi-family properties with as little as 3.5% (as of this writing) in down payment- and the 203K piece allows them to purchase properties that need some work- it’s a great program for first time home buyers of any kind, but more especially those who buy multi-family homes.
Many people hear about, or see the great opportunities investment properties offer, yet some are sometimes afraid of the unknown and never act on these opportunities. The agents at Maine Realty are there to help you through the entire process. From looking for “killer deals”, checking our foreclosures in Maine, short sales in Maine or simply distressed sellers who simply want to “get out of the game” to calculating NOI & ROI to property management. Put our decades of experience, our passion to do the right thing every time, and our unsurpassed negotiation skills to work for you– and your retirement may just be a lot sooner than you ever imagined possible!
