  1. Mark,
    I’m a soon to be real estate invester from the Indianapolis market. I am blown away by the topics and information found in your blog. Everyone hits a burning topic that I have been thinking of and want to learn more about. I feel like your blog alone could be one of my most valued resources as I look to it in a way as a trusted mentor. I am in the process of formally starting my business creation….I am considering a niche as an “all inclusive rental” provider of single family 3/2 homes for Grad Students, Military Personnel and Self Care Special Needs persons. Do you have any expertise in these areas? Love your content and look to be a lifelong reader. Thanks for everything! If there is anyway I can reasonably return the favor and help you let me know! Sincerely, Shaun

    • Thank you Shaun! I appreciate your kind words.
      Right now I specialize in single family sales and renting my own SFR properties. We don’t have a military base in my area so I don’t deal with that. We do have a large college and I own a college rental with my parents. My sister is a property manager and used to specialize in college rentals and I have helped her quite a bit. Personally I stay away from college rentals. In our town most of the college properties are very old and that mixed with college students can lead to a lot of maintenance and repairs. Usually with the college rentals the landlord pays more utilities and there is a lot more turnover as well. I prefer to keep things simple and deal with one family who treat the rental property as their own house and pay utilities. The college students are a lot more needy, aren’t as knowledgably about how to take care of a home and are constantly moving. That’s just my opinion, many investors love college rentals because sometimes there is better cash flow potential to make up for the issues I mentioned. I don’t have an y experience with special needs either. I try to focus my strategy on what I know best which is SFR.
      Good luck on your investing and please feel free to email or comment with any questions. Info@investfourmore.com
