7 Tips For How to Grow Your Business and Your Portfolio Right in Your Backyard

Trius Lending Tip 1

TIP #1: WORK LOCAL AND THINK LOCAL

• Know Baltimore (or your local area)
• Do your research both online AND in person
• Research closed sales history online and in publications
• This will help you find the pockets of opportunity and
understand the prices and, in turn, the returns

• Understand the risks and pitfalls of picking the wrong area:
• Might be a small loan but a bad area
• More likely to get broken into
• Difficult to collect rent and/or re-sell
• More likely to have squatters they have more rights
than you do
• It’s the bad renters that will hurt you or the bad buyers
