Every good real estate investment starts with finding the right property. Spartan Invest has a dedicated team of inventory specialists who review more than 300 properties each week. As we are reviewing each property we have a proprietary list of ideal attributes that we look for in each property. Only about 1% of all properties we review qualify as ideal and those are the properties that we purchase. Our vetting process yields the best houses with the highest margins for return.
After selecting an ideal property, Spartan Invest has access to over $7M in liquid capital, which allows us to act quickly and purchase the best deals in cash. This capital access gives us the ability to bid on foreclosures, make cash offers and seize opportunities that other, smaller buyers cannot capitalize on.

The fastest way to add value to an investment property is a complete renovation. For Spartan Invest, that typically means a new roof, new heating and cooling system, updated kitchens and baths, and new hardwood floors. We have created a streamlined process to reduce renovation cost and maximize return.
It Starts With The Team. We have our own dedicated team of general contractors and specialists who work exclusively for Spartan Invest. This allows us to avoid high outside vendor costs while ensuring the quality of work.
Economies of Scale. Because we renovate so many houses, we have created a system of standard renovations that allow us to buy materials in bulk. For example every home we renovate gets the same fixtures in the kitchen and baths. This allows us to buy the fixtures in bulk at discounted rates. It also makes repairs easier because our repair team knows what to expect when they get a repair ticket.
Protect The Investment. We believe in renovations that reduce long-term headaches for our investors. We put brand new tin roofs and HVAC units in 80% of the homes we renovate because those fundamental renovations protect our investors for years to come.
Spartan Invest has helped guide many investors through the purchase process. It starts with setting investment goals. Our team of advisors works with each investor to set clear investment goals. Depending on your specific objectives (tax relief, long-term buy and hold investment, cash flow, etc.) we will guide you to the right types of properties and then provide inventory options that meet your needs.
Once we have found the right property for you, the expert team at Spartan Invest can walk you through financing options and explain the pros and cons of financing versus cash purchase. Every investor is different, but Spartan has the resources to assist you with your purchase no matter which financing option you decide to choose.
Leasing is possibly the most critical component for an investment property. You make money on your investment by having a tenant. Therefore, it is critical that you achieve maximum occupancy year-over-year. The leasing team at Spartan Invest has been marketing and leasing rental property for over 10 years.
Good leasing starts with having a good inventory of properties. Having better properties leads to recruiting better tenants faster and maintaining maximum occupancy rates. Spartan Invest is very careful about the houses we purchase. We seek houses located in better neighborhoods on better streets and we bring each house’s finish quality to the top 10% in the respective neighborhood during our renovation process.
After ensuring that we have the best properties, Spartan follows a proprietary marketing plan for every property in our management portfolio. This plan has been tested and refined over many years and now includes a mix of online and traditional marketing strategies that we believe generate the most quality tenant leads.
We follow up our marketing strategy with a rigorous tenant screening process including background check and credit check. We are very selective about our tenants and require higher credit scores than most property management companies. We can be selective because our reputation combined with our inventory selection has provided us with a wide pool of potential tenants.
At Spartan Invest, we take care of your investment property like it was our own. Our in-house maintenance team handles all repair tickets and we guarantee all work. With every repair, Spartan Invest has two goals: make the tenant happy (retention) and protect your investment. Tenants love that our average response time for a repair ticket is less than 24 hours. We also provide 24-hour emergency service for repairs that need to be taken care of immediately.
Our property management team also handles all rental agreements, rent collection, move-in and move-out processing, and evictions when necessary.
Spartan Invest believes in complete transparency with our investors. We consider ourselves partners and we always want you to know exactly what is going on with your property. To ensure complete transparency and deliver real-time status reports, Spartan has made a significant investment in PropertyWare. Through the PropertyWare software platform, every Spartan investor has access to his or her property dashboard. All you have to do is login to your dashboard and you can see (in real-time) everything that is going on with your property. You can instantly view your current lease agreement, check in on tenant current lease payments, view your rental draws, or check the occupancy rate of your entire portfolio.
