As Ive worked on this Website, many clients, business associates, and friends have asked me the same question: Why create a real estate website focused on Burlington area Multi-Family Investment Properties, and why now? In my first blog post, I want to explain the goal of my site and how I hope it may assist current clients and future real estate buyers and sellers. When I joined Coldwell Banker Hickok & Boardman in 1998, I quickly realized that I enjoyed working with Multi-Family Buyers and Sellers. Specializing in investment properties allowed me to combine several aspects of my pre-real estate career capital equipment finance and restaurant owner/manager with my interests and background in construction. Ive been so fortunate over the past decade to work and live in a city I love, and to be able to help hundreds of clients achieve their real estate goals. My goal for this site, then, is not only to provide buyers and sellers with information on the latest listings, but also to provide resources for investors. This website (lipvt.com) was created to help investors analyze properties and keep informed on issues ranging from tenants regulations to zoning and code enforcement issues. As for the why now part of the question, I felt it was the right time to debut a Burlington-area Website with a focus on multi-family properties. The local market has weathered the 2008 slowdown, and appears poised to resume the steady solid growth of past decades. I believe the timing is excellent to invest in Burlington area real estate. So whether you are a first time buyer or a seasoned investor looking to shift/adjust or add to your portfolio the time to invest in Burlington area real estate is now. Thats not to say that Lipkin Investment Properties doesnt work with clients who are buying or selling single-family homes. My business partner Luke Clavelle and I have a passion for real estate and homes for sale, regardless of whether they are single-family homes or investment properties. Please take a look at our site, and if you have questions or would like more information on a topic, please contact me.
