Getting Projects Done on time and on Budget



At Rooftopinvestment we pride ourselves to making sure that our clients have the best properties in the neighborhoods we buy in.  To do that we have licensed Realtors assist our clients in finding the right properties.  We do not mark up the properties in anyway you pay what we get them for.  We purchase most of our real estate through the banks and other institutions. All properties are closed through escrow and have title insurance with them.  This is very important to have to know your property is secure and safe.  Remember the escrow companies are governed by banking rules and have strict guidelines they must follow.
 
 Rooftopinvestment does all the construction.  You will get a detailed quote along with pictures and video updates.  Check out Rooftopvideo for some properties we are currently doing.  We also backup all your information just in case you need it in the future. 

The construction budget is accurate 98.7% of the time.  We pride ourselves in making sure the client can plan for their future and build their portfolio.  We have a staff of over 100 that help us make sure that we have all our properties moving along at a good pace without effecting quality.

Check out the home below I was talking about.  It is a double digit return property.

I was at a cousins 50th birthday party last night and Jim explained to me how I had saw this city almost 7 years ago.  I had saw it as a hot bed for affordable high quality real estate. We have purchased 100's of homes in the Cleveland Metro area. We purchase our real estate in great areas like Parma Ohio the 32nd safest city in the United States.  Click here to read the story by 19 Action News.

My vision has always been consistent with the community and with my clients.  Get the best deals possible and have quality construction and maintenance to help ensure future profits for the lifetime of the home.  We just finished a duplex in Cleveland Heights that required a lot of remodeling including 2 new Steam Heaters.  We did all that in a budget and never exceeded that budget.

Keeping 98.7% of all our homes on budget allows you to be able to run your portfolio and be able to calculate future purchases with surety.  That to me is super important to have on your team. The maintenance is also low about 3% of the gross rent.  Again we have all the resources to make sure your maintenance stays low.

Our team consist of about 150 professionals in the construction and maintenance field. We all work together to help ensure a successful property for our client.

A Christmas Story House and Museum in Cleveland

Here is a Christmas Classic that was filmed in Cleveland Ohio.  The home that was in the film is a Museum that you can go through. It is in the West Cleveland Area and also has the original car that was in the movie.  Check out the video.

Located on Cleveland's near-west side in the Tremont neighborhood, "A Christmas Story" House has been completely restored to its movie splendor and is open year-round for public tours. The house is both a tribute to and replica of the Parker family's home in fictional Hohman, Indiana, based on writer and narrator Jean Shepherd's actual childhood home in Hammond, Indiana.

The neighborhood surrounding "A Christmas Story" House is also home to "A Christmas Story" House Museum and a gift shop featuring signature leg lamps and other great movie memorabilia.

For more information on "A Christmas Story" House and Museum, visit http://www.achristmasstoryhouse.com



As I've said before there is a lot to do and have fun in Cleveland Metro Area! I thought I would also throw in a home we just purchased in Parma Ohio!  This home is a great home and should rent for $1000+ per month!  Grade A neighborhood......Look at this home before we start construction!

Undersatnding Real Estate Investing Part 3



I wanted to make a video on how I look at a property in the before construction phase.  The first part of this video was on the garage.  I am scraping and painting the garage which I did not mention in the video.  I also am adding a lawn package in the front of the home.  This home also has great wood floors that will be refinished.

Having the right construction team is super important especially in the areas we purchase in because of all the inspections that are needed for each property.  Everyone in these areas must be licensed and bonded with each individual city.  That includes the sub contractors also. Having done a couple hundred homes in these areas I can tell you they are very strict about having all your paperwork at each city and making sure you finalize your inspections.

A lot of investors don't understand all the different city requirements and permits needed to make sure everything is done properly. Let me give you an example of one.  In one city we deal with they want the contractor to come in and fill out all the paperwork and list all the sub contractors that will be working on that property.  Then the subs can go and get their permits and do the work.  In other cities the contractor pulls his permits and the subs pull theirs also.  The difference is the Contractor doesn't have to list the sub contractors in that city.

Wow sorry about that I know it can be confusing but that is what needs to be done before you start work in each individual property.  Check out this video and how I look at this property for rehab. Brett Young CEO Rooftopinvestment
