Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Midlothian, VA.
I worked with John O'Reilly and his BaseCamp team over the past few years in purchasing a pair of rental homes. The process took me two years to get comfortable with, but I never felt like I was getting pushed off to the side because I was unsure of the rental market, unsure of a particular rental property,etc.
I finally found one that I liked and the process couldn't have been smoother. The Base Camp team assisted me in the tenant-finding process, helped with credit checks and any other questions I had as a first-time landlord.
I then worked with John and BaseCamp to purchase a second rental house and received the same level of service.
I will work with them for future rental house purchases. Each purchase so far has turned out fantastic, but I am not sure I would have entered the rental market without John's level of service -- I am benefiting financially from these purchases and couldn't be happier with the situation.
