Everyone knows that real estate can be a great investment, if you can afford it. It’s a relatively reliable hedge against a sometimes volatile economy, and single family units are an especially enticing way to get in on the action. But where such investments have historically been complicated and even tedious, Roofstock has made the process as simple and easy as possible, so you can focus on enjoying the dividends without all the headaches. Normally you'd have to locate just the right property, then find just the right tenant, and then either manage, or find someone else to manage, the day-to-day business of the residence. But Roofstock is a technology-driven real estate platform that eliminates these headaches and makes investing in single family rental properties easier than ever before.
Roofstock’s mission since its inception in 2015 has been to turn the process of investing in rental properties into a “radically simple” one. And in aiming to achieve that mission, they have created a comprehensive online marketplace that allows you to choose the very best one (or ones) for you, as curated by its top-of-the-line AI algorithm. Properties available on this online marketplace are assigned proprietary “neighborhood scores” that essentially tell you everything you need to know about each listing. These scores include data from a variety of different sources that, in the old days, you would have had to consult separately, if you were lucky and/or knowledgeable enough to know how. And since the Roofstock marketplace includes listings from all across the country, you don’t have to limit yourself to properties in your area. If a listing in California is right for you, it’s OK if you live in New York or Texas or Florida. You can purchase it on Roofstock and start taking in revenue from it quickly and easily.
Once you actually find a property to invest in and your bid is accepted, Roofstock can guide you along the sometimes complicated escrow and closing process, and can even help you hire one of their own vetted property management companies, if you are so inclined.
There are two features of Roofstock that make for immediately appealing points of interest for anyone interested in investing in rental properties. The first is the platform’s “Lease Up Guarantee.” Many of the rental property listings on Roofstock already have tenants occupying them, which means you can start earning income as soon as possible. But even the vacant properties are guaranteed to have a rent-paying tenant within 45 days of closing. If not, Roofstock will cover the rent on that property for up to a year!
Possibly even more enticing is Roofstock’s 30-day money back guarantee. If for whatever reason you have second thoughts about your new property, let Roofstock know within 30 days of closing and they’ll actually take it back and refund your money. Trying getting that kind of deal on your own!
Roofstock is THE online real estate platform for researching, buying, and connecting with partners for financing and property management. It puts everything you need to start collecting rent from tenants all in one place. There are no geographical restrictions, and every property available for sale on the site has been pre-selected and curated for its potential able to generate income. And Roofstock’s powerful AI-driven analytics and expert support team will help you find the perfect property for you.
So if you’re ready to invest in rental properties the easy way, head over to Roofstock and take a look around right now.
