Chicago Property Management Blog



Have you considered investing in Lake County? Or minimizing vacancies with a 3 year rent-to-own lease? 

Bill Powers has successfully done both of these actions to scale his business to 250+ rent to own properties in the last ten years. 

Bill has developed perfect assets, screened each tenant, and assists tenants with lending programs, thus enabling him to keep his occupancy at 99%! Not to mention, Bill's short term rental listings that were in hot water due to COVID-19; but Bill found a solution to quickly pivot and set himself up for success. 

Key points:

  • Type of SFH to look when investing
  • Screening tenants for rent to own
  • Airbnb and STR market
  • Estimating rehab costs and values
  • Lake County Property Investor association
