Hi Raj,
It has been few months since you posed this question. I am hoping you have bought your first investment property or closer to deciding on one. I am curious to know what are your findings, which is the one you decided to go with and the reason behind it. I am in the same boat as yours. So wondering. Thanks!

A lot of it depends on your specific objectives but the area is definitely one that is in rapid development and could experience respectable appreciation in the next 3, 5 or 10 years. Ryan is certainly a respectable builder that produces a nice product.

Could someone answer this without the usual realtor self promotion. How is the renting potential for townhomes in Arcola center next year. The commercial development won't start till next summer.

As an investor you want to attain the lowest possible cost basis, hedge yourself against risk and be prepared to hold for 5/8/10 years. New construction can be tricky if you're inexperienced negotiating the process with a builder. Remember the builder's rep represents the "seller", in this case Ryan Homes.

Feel free to reach out to me by phone or email for guidance on how to approach new construction as an investment with Ryan Homes.
