Investor's Corner


As a Real Estate investor myself, I am very interested in talking with others about anything relating to Real Estate investments. If you would like to get involved with rehab projects or have the capital needed to invest and want more information, please let me know. I am willing to provide my expert experience, advice or professional help. Since 2002, I have been involved in hundreds of various Real Estate transactions as an agent and broker. And since early 2009, myself and my partners have been active Rehab Investors involving several homes in Northern Michigan.
Ever wanted to get involved in the business of Real Estate investments but don't want the "full hassle" of buying and selling Real Estate? Cash Investors can earn well over 10% interest on their money by working with Rehab Investors.  Cash Investors basically hold first lien position Mortgage Notes with compounded monthly interest paid or earned through-out the contract. There are no "concrete" rules about how the investment is structured - flexibility regarding contract length and other terms are possible. Let me know if you are interested. Ask me for my article that briefly explains the process of Real Estate Investing and the relationship between Rehab Investors and Cash Investors.
If you are an investor, we can share ideas...whether it be success stories or lessons learned. Please feel free to drop me an email or call me anytime.

In November of 2012, Mike started a new company, T C Home Development, LLC as Managing Member with a new partner that acquired 7 properties including 2 within Traverse City. These rehab home investments generally yield minimum profits of at least 16% each and have employed several people in the area. 1 project is currently ongoing as a rental and the other 6 have sold.
