(9/8/17) John Larson joined Keith Weinhold, Host of Get Rich Education, to discuss their recent real estate market field trip to St. Louis, Missouri. As one of the 20 largest U.S. metropolitan areas, its job growth and diversity of business sectors support durable rental income streams for real estate investors. Typical price points are $1,100 rents and $110,000 purchase prices for single-family income property in St. Louis. St. Louis has city inspectors – upside: this supports neighborhood condition, downside: they must be complied with. Kansas City, Missouri is also experiencing steady job growth amidst varied employment sectors. Visitors to the city remark about the area’s cleanliness. Both St. Louis and Kansas City have investor-advantaged rental neighborhoods that consist of about 65% owner-occupants. This promotes good curb appeal and safety. Missouri has Landlord-Tenant laws which favor the investor (landlord) more than the tenant. We’re discussing investment in turnkey income property: typically single-family homes that are already renovated, tenanted, and under management on that day that you buy.
