How does being a landlord in the Indy real estate market compare to other areas? Indy market 101.

If you are going to invest in Indiana rentals and be an Indy landlord from out of the area then this is for you.  Here’s what you need to know about being a “Buy and Hold” real estate investor in Indiana. 

First of all, THANK YOU again for making this channel the number one channel for Indiana real estate on YouTube according google analytics and SocialBlade info for

This is a quick video I made about  a Hero’s experiment…

How does the Indy market compare to other markets like GA, AL, and Chicago?

Indy Anna here to answer:

•Why Indiana’s ‘market’ has been tried and true

•Why specifically Indiana may be one of your better options

•Something IMPORTANT to make sure you start with as an OOS (out of state) investor

Mike from Florida had this question:

“Speaking with my neighbor last night, he shared he and his  wife are looking to start investing in single family rentals with roughly $300K in capital saved, and they are split on regions to invest.  In this scenario, they would be out of long-distance landlords, and only one has had prior real estate investing experience in the past…

The 2 markets she is targeting are Atlanta, GA and Birmingham, AL. He prefers the Midwest, targeting Chicago, IL and Indianapolis, IN.

All things considered, of the four markets being considered for buy and hold single family rentals, which markets would you suggest?”

One of the first things is to gauge your appetite and then build/select the right team on the ground.

Being an OOS investor can obviously be very lucrative if you’ve got the right people to work with in the investing area.  I say this as just last week I spoke with someone who had recently taken back over an apartment complex their ‘manager’ had nearly run into the ground.  If they’d had the right people from the start, it would have simply been mailbox money from month one – without the headache.

And I’ve covered in other videos as to why Indy is great for  investors with our landlord friendly laws, lower taxes, etc. 

Then you’ve got to determine what the investing goals are;

If you are okay with C-ish areas then you can find 2% properties, if you need nicer areas then you won’t have 2% or positive cash flowing properties if you are using a mortgage.

If you are paying cash, then you need to develop the target ROI and work backwards

For example, if they want to buy SRF they can buy a few houses in the 30-40k range that are 2% houses (in C areas). 

So if you bought 3 houses @ 40k that each rent for $800 you would have $120k in mortgages or cash invested but  and your gross rent would be $2,400 a month.

So, If you bought 5 that would be $200k and 4k/month every month and 100k left for expenses.

This is how I often do deals with our CA investors; they pay all cash for 5 at a time and it could easily work the same for this situation it seem.

About the area I like Indy for several reasons:

– It is a flat line market so you know you can unload at relatively the same price you bought it. Also 2% houses are common here and only available in a few other places in the Midwest only.

So really, it comes down to three main points that we covered here:

-Who you’re working with, your Boots on the Ground
-What your financial goals are and investing objectives (SFR, multi family, etc)
-Where can you combine the first two point WITH landlord friendly laws, lower taxes, purchase price point, etc. (making it the trifecta of consideration)

Usually, the best place to begin is with a clear picture goals in mind, working around then towards objectives- filling out my investor profile would help make these clearer.

If you want to do deals like this email me or give me a call, remember this is my direct line:

That’s My Direct Line (that means if I’m in, YES, I’ll actually  answer lol)
OR send me an email
Love (at) or DM me.

Thanks so much!  = )

And as always…
