EquityMax Insight

Based on the newest available data regarding home values across North Carolina, the strategy of whether to flip a property or hold for rental could easily depend on how many bedrooms the home has.  2 bedroom homes are seemingly holding less value than homes with 3 or 4 bedroom homes.  This may be an opportunity to leverage 2BR homes for a higher rate of return when renting to tenants, given the lower overall home value of these homes vs. 1, 3, or 4 BR homes.

What Our Clients Say

January 21, 2021

The whole team at EquityMax expedited my loan, closing in 2 days once title came back.  The approval process was easy and communication was friendly, effective and  exceptional. Gregory and Elly were always available to me, and their helpful proactiveness was the key in getting everything done with all parties involved. When I was concerned, Gregory told me we could make this opportunity happen on time, and he not only knows his business, but is a man of his word. A great financing source for any level real estate investor!
