NEW Investment Portal
The professionally-developed platform allows OmniKey Realty investors to view:
- Off-market properties
- Learn more about Texas cities
- Review property details
- And more
You’ve never seen investment opportunities in such a sleek and inclusive fashion!
You can typically find 80 to 140 properties listed on the portal at any given time. We happily hold your hand through the entire process of investing in real estate. All investment property purchases and sales are personally overseen by our owners Leah and Michael Slaughter, as well as our investment team members.
We can help you purchase with a 1031 Exchange, through an IRA, by cash, or with traditional or portfolio lending. If lending is the best option, we have lenders able to offer:
- Conventional financing
- Portfolio lending
- Hard money lending
- Commercial and multi-family financing
- IRA non-recourse financing
- And more
Next, we will help you locate a property or properties for purchase. We work with many different types of properties and have direct contacts with banks, builders, relocation companies, etc. to make sure you find exactly what fits you. We handle negotiating the contract price and terms you want as well as work with the vendors to assess the condition of each property. Also, if the property is not new construction, we will determine the work needed, then acquire quotes for any work to be done. About 95% of our inventory is direct, off-market new construction properties.
Upon closing, if it is a pre-owned property, we will oversee the work being completed and have the property brought to rental code. We immediately list the property upon closing to help minimize downtime. This listing includes professional photos, a showing scheduling service, the commission to a tenant’s agent if applicable, and much more.
We typically recommend a 2-6 year hold on most acquisitions depending on the market status. With the cash flow, heightened appreciation, and/or initial equity on each property, this is often the perfect time frame to sell and recapture all equity. Then, you can either keep the profit or do a 1031 Exchange and use one sale to allow for two purchases, two sales for four, etc. Many of our clients start with just one rental then move quickly toward retirement by building a large portfolio.
We are constantly monitoring the market and tier our leases to prime season whenever possible as we always have the end game of flipping in mind. Our leases allow us to place a key box and list for sale during the lease, and we typically list 2-3 months before the lease goes month to month so we have a tenant paying rent while it is listed for sale and then proceed to give the tenant notice once a firm contract for purchase is secured. We even have tenants and other investors purchasing properties we list, so we don’t exclude any marketing avenue for a quick, high-value sale.
