Buying investment property in Wilmington, NC. Overview

I have experience working with real estate investors in Wilmington and surrounding areas (I am a real estate investor myself) and I will be able to choose the best option for your needs. If you don’t want to search and communicate with your future tenants yourself, I can recommend a property manager to you who will deal with all issues related to the renting your house. Some of my clients do not even live in the area, they just buy and hold properties receiving the automatic payments from their tenants to their bank account.

And the best part is that it would not cost you a penny to work with me, my commissions come directly from the sellers’ side.

At age 14, he acquired 40 acres of land, which he leased to farmers. The name of this man is Warren Buffet.
