Isn’t “Turnkey” Just a Buzzword?

Separating Authentic from the Gimmick

It’s true: “turnkey” is oftentimes used as a marketing ploy to hook in investors. Companies will do the bare minimum to a house when flipping it and slap on “turnkey” to lure in investors. Many times investors feel like their only other option is to do the process themselves — but this quickly becomes a full-time job.

True turnkey companies separate themselves from the gimmicks by:

• Finding a property

• Using their money to completely renovate the property from top to bottom

• Introducing the property to investors after it becomes a performing asset

• Managing the property for the investor by finding residents to rent the property and keeping communication open for investors regarding returns and repairs on at least a quarterly basis


Choosing Reliable Markets —Regardless of Your Location

Financial Freedom from Anywhere

Investors are sometimes prone to thinking their investment properties must be within their geographical location. By equipping yourself with the right checklist of what to look for in a market, investors are empowered to expand their reach. 

The Ultimate Guide to Turnkey Investing will educate you on factors to account for and explain why they’re important, including:

• High affordability index rates
• City growth in population and infrastructure
• Diversity in companies and industries

How Do I Know My Investment Property is Sound?

Happy Residents Mean Low Vacancy

Shoddy renovations. Vacancy gaps. Poorly-suited residents. We know the woes real estate investors go through when seeking investment opportunities. To solve these common problems, we’ve identified two foolproof methods for securing returns:

1. True quality renovations: High standards dictate what qualifies a home as “livable.” The key to success is to ensure that all renovations are high quality so you’re investing in properties that are built to last without continuous headaches.

2. Excellent property management: Screen all residents to ensure that they’re a good fit both for the property and for your investors, or pick the right property management company that will take care of this for you. By ensuring that your residents have stable income situations, you’ll have more control over your investment returns.

Our process has proven successful for our investors year-after-year:

Average Length of Stay

Less Than 2%

Financing Your Properties

As an investor, it’s important to know the warning signs from invest companies and understand what your options are for financing your properties. We’ll empower you with the knowledge you need to make secure decisions and take a deep dive into the following:

• Preferred lenders
• Traditional financing
• Self-directed IRAs
• 1031 Exchanges

Expanding Your Portfolio

A rich portfolio doesn’t happen overnight. Strategic patience is an integral part to growing your wealth and developing a diverse portfolio. In teaching you how to invest right for now and in the future, we share the mistakes we have learned from in the past:

“See, I had a plan, and my plan was to own 15 single-family homes and own them outright. I wanted to do it as quickly as possible. But I made the mistake of trying to buy cheap, inexpensive properties. I was doing very little work to them and it really didn't matter to me about the experience the resident had with my properties as long as I was able to buy the property and they were occupied. So, naturally, I was not successful.”

Thank you so much! REI Nation and Premier Properties has demonstrated such a wonderful job managing our properties. It is simply blissful not having to worry about tenants, repairs, etc. We love how you keep us informed in a very timely manner as to what was needed at any point of time. You and your company sure have property management down to a science. I look forward to having you all continue managing our properties. And, of course, I will not hesitate to tell anyone I know to contact you when they think of investing in residential real estate.

When I first heard about your process, I was skeptical. Would and could a company actually do everything that you promised? You set the bar high for yourself, and I thought that it would be difficult to reach your goals. You have far exceeded what was promised. When people ask me what I do in real estate and I explain that I have “people” that help me purchase rental property, rehab the property, locate tenants and manage the property for me, most people don’t believe me. You have shown me the missing link in the process and made the outlook for my future brighter.
