Kansas City KS Real Estate Buy and Hold Case Study 74th St

Kansas City KS cash home buyer

Table of Contents

This Kansas City KS Real Estate project at 74th St was a MLS short sale home which was a DIY weekend warrior updated home.   Were were able to retain windows and roof, but had opted to do a full paint, new flooring, add tile in bathroom and add a shower to the master bath.  We choose granite as normal and changed the hand rail to a wrought iron spindles to give a more open feel.

Kansas City KS Real Estate Buy and Hold Case Study Summary

KC Property Guys Investment Consultants understand there are many ways to calculate investment valuations.  We tend to use more conservative scenarios. For example, 10% repairs on a turnkey investment tends to be high which work against displayed monthly cash flow, NOI and Cash on Cash valuations.  Overall, we feel our approach is more transparent and appreciated overall by our investment partners.

Summary: We had many tenant offers on the property on 74th St.  The home had a quality tenant in about 8 hours overall with 2 back ups tenant offers by the following day.   Very nice project overall.
