Are you looking for that perfect fixer home or lot in a great location with income producing opportunities? Or maybe a rental property in a neighborhood with huge upside potential? Maria is always on the lookout for those properties as well and knows how to distinguish the smart investments from the money traps. She will do exhaustive research in vetting the property and giving you the information needed to help you run the numbers, decide on highest use, and get into contract. Even after closing, Maria strives to be an ongoing resource for you. From financing options to architects to city permit expeditors to sub contractors, Maria happily shares her references and loves connecting people.
Finding and securing the lot is the first step, but as your real estate representative I stay engaged during permitting, planning, and costing. Let my design background and complimentary consultation services go to work for you. I work with builders during the construction stage to advise them on market trends, design details, and in-demand features. My comparative market analysis starts many months before the project is completed because I know decisions need to be made on net profit throughout the whole process. When comparable homes come on the market, I will tour the properties with you and keep you informed about market conditions every step of the way to project completion. When you are ready to list, you can trust my sophisticated staging, savvy marketing, and industry connections will get you stellar results.
Are you looking to broaden your investment portfolio and explore rental properties? Whether it be a condominium unit with no rent cap in a financially solid building, a single family home in an up and coming neighborhood, or a multi-family property- I can help you navigate the logistics of identifying rental investments and provide you with the specific research and vetting that goes along with those types of properties.
Have you always wanted to restore the beauty of a home? Do you have a passion for transforming spaces and using that skill set to earn income? Me too! I did my first studs out remodel at the age of 25 and ever since then see every house through the lens of "what can we do to this property to increase value and appeal?" Flipping homes though can be high risk and that is why it is so important to have a trusted real estate agent helping you identify the right properties and providing you with information that could be detrimental to the project. With increasing labor and materials costs amongst already high property buy ins, this aspect has never been more crucial. I'm in and out of homes everyday and am happy to send properties with potential your way. The next step is running comparables on the flip side and making sure the numbers work in your favor. If it feels like a possible opportunity, we then dive into inspections, zoning research, sewer scopes, and feasibility studies to make sure you are armed with all the information possible about your potential project and profitability. Even if this home is for your own occupancy and not for resale, I still want you to have the big picture view of a fixer home.
