Single Family

Single family homes can make for a great investment, but make sure you take into consideration all the “hidden” costs in your ROI calculation. Single family homes have the biggest maintenance factor, so our ROI calculations take into account the age of major systems, deferred maintenance considerations and needed improvements. We also review HOA rules and regulations to make sure there are no surprises that could potentially hinder your plans.


Amenities are key when considering a condominium or townhouse. We will make a holistic review of all amenities, including: pools, workout facilities, sports courts, parks, shopping centers, etc. Our team will review the HOA rules and regulations to ensure they fit with your intended use of the property.


Before investing in a multifamily property, there are several details that can be reviewed, like a rent roll or full Pro-forma to get an understanding of income, delinquencies and occupancy rates. Whenever possible, Clutch Properties also looks at current tenant credit reports and background checks.

Short-Term Rentals

Short-term rentals are extremely popular in the Phoenix Valley which leads to enticing revenue projections, but not all that glitters is gold. We leverage industry experts for deeper market analysis and we also investigate HOA rules and regulations. Short-term rentals are not always permissible under the CC&Rs which can expose you to steep violations ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars.


To build or not to build? There is actually a lot that goes into deciding if land and lot purchases can be a good investment. We work with builders and experts to evaluate lots for build suitability, including cost estimates, grading, comparable sales, city ordinances, engineering, etc.


Due to current market conditions, certain commercial sectors are in flux, but there are always good opportunities out there.

I give Gene 5 stars across the board. I've been working with a few agents in different markets as I needed to purchase a couple properties to satisfy a 1031 exchange. It really gave me a good comparison, to see the difference between a true professional (Gene) vs. someone who "sells real estate" or is part time. Gene knew the process inside and out and made me feel very comfortable especially when my contingent sale got delayed and I wasn't going to be able to close on-time. Gene kept me informed so my escrow was never at risk. I will definitely be working with Gene on future purchases or if I ever sell.

Local Investor

Felix M.

Gene helped me acquire a 2BD 2BT condo in Mesa this summer. He did an excellent job facilitating an inspection and helping understand the purchase agreement. He also connected me with local vendors I’m working with on improving my property. Gene is a very responsive, knowledgeable and skilled agent. I‘m glad to have worked with him and would recommend him to my network.

Out-of-State Investor

Michael A.

If you talk to Gene, he seems to understand and relate. He found me 2 beautiful homes that we purchased through him. His negotiation got us a lower cost than we thought the seller would take, and he did all the leg work. He's very well rounded and showed us the flaws through a video call when we weren't able to get off work to see it ourselves.  Hands down would call him to buy our next home!
