Putting down money in the real estate market? As anyone who’s done it knows, it can be a volatile game. But for the most part, anyone who tells you to “go with your gut” on a property isn’t doing it right.
Savvy real estate investors keep an eye on housing prices, rental rates, population fluctuations and a ton of other commercial factors. In other words, they do their homework.
Like any homework, it takes time, but thanks to some sophisticated data analytics, there’s an app that can shave off hours, if not days. Whether you’re buying a single house or looking at multiple properties in several different cities, Mashvisor is a godsend.
If it were just a repository for rental listings, Mashvisor would already be an impressive tool, but it does a lot more than that. Its data is drawn from multiple reliable sites: Airbnb, Redfin, MLS, HotPads and RentJungle, just to name a few.
It compiles all those listings into a map that’s chock full of info. Too much info? The interface is a dream, letting you drill down to just the criteria you need.
Just enter any city, or even a neighborhood, and the app gives you a snapshot of the average income, home prices and other relevant data. You can zoom in to see individual listings, or pull back to get a general heat map of the city. You’ll be able to tell if things are trending down or whether it’s time to snap up a bargain with just a glance.
Looking to start up some Airbnb rental properties? Mashvisor is especially useful here. It can tell you what the average rental income or cash on cash return is for traditional rental units, Airbnb homes or both. Compare that with available properties in the area and it’s a one-stop shop for your impending rental empire.
Mashvisor’s algorithms can give informed advice every step of the way, and you can export your findings into spreadsheets for an easy aid to any presentation. It’s like having a team of realtors in every town.
Right now, you can get a lifetime subscription to Mashvisor for a full 97% off the original retail price.
