Local Market Knowledge
Marlau Investments is a privately held residential real estate investment firm that has continually generated high returns throughout all market conditions to become one of the leading residential investment firms in the greater DFW Metroplex.
We are Selective
We are real estate investors who employ a straightforward time-proven strategy. We selectively acquire high-quality residential properties that are located in desirable neighborhoods that are purchased at a substantial discount. Many of the properties we acquire need extensive rehabilitation and the proceeds from the sale help the sellers overcome financial stress.
What you need to know
Know When to Buy
We will purchase many homes but only a select few will meet our stringent criteria and be added to our long-term rental portfolio. The remaining homes are renovated, marketed, and resold to individuals and other investors.
Know When to Sell
We constantly monitor the local and national real estate market to identify current and trending indicators. Once market trends indicate the market has peaked (or near the peak) we lock in profits by selling the homes in our portfolio.
Know When to Hold
We unlock value by renovating, upgrading, and addressing any major mechanical issues. We then market, manage, and maintain the asset as a rental property to generate positive income and long-term capital appreciation.
Know When to Flip
During market-down trends, we do not add to our portfolio but concentrate on the fix and flip opportunities. This generates immediate cash flow while limiting downside risk.
