Setting the Tone

The first thing you should know is that this event is educational.  So don’t worry about getting trapped in a room and getting hard closed to buy something (we call this the “timeshare experience”).  That’s not the way we roll.

However, we’re guessing you probably want to OWN more real estate.  After all, how much money can you make on a property you don’t own? So on this trip…

You’ll meet local market experts who provide many of the kinds of services you’ll need if you decide Cleveland is the market for you.  But nothing gets sold on the trip. If you like what you see and who you meet, then you can follow up on your own. No pressure from us or any of our guest speakers. That’s the why the trip isn’t free or subsidized.  You pay for education and that’s what you get.

Okay, with that out of the way, let’s talk about…

Trip Logistics

When you arrive in Cleveland on Friday, plan to arrive in time to get to the host hotel by 4:00 pm.

The host hotel serves as home base for the entire field trip.  So while you’re free to stay elsewhere, ask about a group deal…and it’s just a lot easier if you stay at the host hotel.

Friday night, expect a meet and greet, followed by a market overview presentation.

Afterwards,  head out to dinner with the hosts. Then back to the hotel for some shuteye.

Saturday morning get up and at ’em early. After breakfast, you’ll start in the classroom to lay the groundwork for a day of touring.

You’ll see a variety of neighborhoods and employment centers, and get an understanding for the overall health and vibrancy of the market.  You’ll learn how to look for the telltale signs of opportunity (or danger!) at the neighborhood level. This is important because you don’t buy a market, you buy a neighborhood.

Expect an emphasis on single and multi-family residential because that’s what most people are interested in, but you’ll also see commercial and retail areas.  If you have a particular interest, register early and be sure to let the hosts know what you’re most eager to learn about. The goal is to tailor each trip to the unique interests of each particular group.

The trips are small, so there’s ample time to ask questions and lots of interaction with the guest speakers, tour guides and your fellow field trippers. And look forward to capping the day off with a fun dinner and some tasty libations. Then back to the hotel for a nap.

Sunday morning is a lively interactive strategy session, some Q&A, and presentations from local experts.

After this power weekend, you’ll know more about Cleveland than most people who’ve lived there for years!

So Why Cleveland?

Cleveland is making a comeback.

Once a forgotten city with a struggling manufacturing sector, Cleveland is rebuilding a stronger, more diverse economy and workforce.

With a booming healthcare-technology corridor and revitalized neighborhoods and construction, Cleveland is poised to make a major move in the real estate market.

Here’s what’s changing in Ohio:

  • Diversified economy. Shuttering factories led to widespread unemployment. While some of those jobs have returned, it’s no longer the largest sector of the economy, and that diversity is promising for the future of the market.
  • The leader in healthcare. Cleveland Clinic is one of the best healthcare systems in the world and is the national leader in cardiology and heart surgery. Watch for continued growth in the biomedical industry.
  • An emerging tech hub. Greater access to capital, support for entrepreneurs, a low cost of living and a vibrant health tech corridor are just a few of the reasons why technology companies are choosing Cleveland as their home.
  • Eight Fortune 500 companies call it home. It’s not all surgery and computers here. Progressive Insurance, Goodyear Tire and Rubber, Sherwin Williams, and others provide jobs and revenue. And that influx of capital and people is revitalizing neighborhoods.
  • A newer, younger population. Millennials want to live closer to where they work and are coming back from the suburbs to the cities. Cleveland is the 8th fastest growing millennial population in the US, and they’re renting and purchasing homes.
  • Centralized location. According to Forbes, Ohio is within a day’s drive of 60 percent of the US GDP and 150 Fortune 500 businesses. It’s easy and cheap to get to many major cities.

Downtown Cleveland is changing rapidly. As the Health-Tech Corridor expands and innovates, Cleveland will continue to be a diamond in the rust belt.  We encourage you to take a deeper look at Cleveland.
