As an extension from our last post, one of the things we wanted to talk specifically about is how we affect the community, and not just during natural disasters or emergencies. As this blog about real estate effects on the market states, investors have a direct effect on the community and its real estate. As homes are built and age, new development occurs, and the older homes start to fall behind on maintenance or simply aren't keeping up with latest trends. Newer families look to settle down and they are otherwise forced to buy old project homes or look for new houses. As investors, we afford them the opportunity to find a home in a nice spot within the older parts of the city by taking a home and remodeling it to meet latest trends, regulations, and personalized tastes. Without our involvement in the real estate market, these homes would simply become vacant, rot away, and drop property values all around the neighborhood.

When disasters occur and homes are several damaged or totally destroyed, banks don't want to get involved with potential high risk situations like that. And one of the advantages we have here in Houston is that there's a fairly large community of investors who are willing and able to take on that kind of risk through their own lending and ability to carry out a home remodel. We can single-handedly restore entire neighborhoods because of our investor community, and that is a huge altruistic power of its own. Being able to make money, save homeowners, and restore part of the city is a massive benefit to what we do, and its a power that we know we have and execute responsibly. As a community of investors, we want the city to thrive and flourish as much as any others, and we are able to do it on our own without requiring governments or banks.

There's really something to what we do other than just flipping homes for profit. Credit to http://www.dallascarpetcleaningblog.com for providing some of the content in this article.
