Feb. 19, 2013 - PRLog -- Abhinav Gupt or A.G. as he is more popularly known, co-founded in 2008 after being frustrated with the lack of simple, transparent, and self-service tools for acquiring real estate properties. Since then he has transformed what started as a technology company into an investment brokerage as well as a credentialing institute for investors. Though the company’s primary focus until now has been the Houston market but now they are expanding to most of the large cities in Texas and AG’s insights in this interview are applicable to real estate investments nationally.

As per AG, one of the biggest misses in spotting attractive real estate investments is the lack of availability of data on the “shadow inventory” (Investopedia defines shadow inventory as real estate properties that are either in foreclosure and have not yet been sold or homes that owners are delaying putting on the market until prices improve). helps investors get some of these distressed deals much early in the sale process.

AG tells us that many investors have flocked the Houston local markets as the Net Operating Incomes (single family rental incomes) have crossed 15% in many of these markets. He also believes that the outlook for real estate investments is very promising across the U.S. This is validated by the fact that many hedge funds are looking to buy single family homes across the country.

In the end, AG mentions that this is a great time to build a real estate portfolio as the borrowing rates are at historically low values. He however suggests that investors have to do their due diligence to ensure they are buying the houses at the right price i.e. below market value and not future market value. He hopes that will be able to assist many investors identify such attractive investments.
