What is John Vashon’s Real Estate Investment Experience and Track Record?

Someone emailed last week and asked about our track-record of investing in real estate.  I’d say we’ve made about $5M including operating income, proceeds from sales and the estimated equity in our current investments.  Here are some of the highlights over 30 years, dating back to the first purchase of a townhouse in Columbia, Maryland in 1983:

  • We completed a total of 34 transactions, 21 buy and 13 sell,  including condos, single family homes, an apartment building and mobile home parks (MHPs)
  • We are long-term investors with an average hold time over 5 years
  • We have 8 properties in the current portfolio including 6 mobile home parks
  • We have 300+ tenants and manage all our own properties
  • All our properties are located all in N. California with the exception of one MHP in Nebraska
  • We sold one property for a loss in 1993 and might lose money on one of our current MHPs, if we were to sell today
  • Proceeds from sales total approximately $2.3M
  • Net cash flow over the past 8 years exceeded $1.5M

If you’d like to see a list of our transactions including buy and sell prices and financial statements on our current portfolio, please give me a call at (925) 640-7121.
