Why are the properties shown on your website all sold?

Our turnkey operation is a bit unique in that we don't stock inventory or blast properties from an available list to share with the public, rather, we have a VIP Investor Queue where our clients get EXCLUSIVITY to all of our properties. Only the investors in our VIP Queue get the opportunity to see our exclusive, inventory. This allows us to offer exclusivity to our clients while eliminating bidding wars.

How do I get into the “Investor Queue”?

The investor queue is a fair method to distribute the available rent ready properties. You are placed in the queue in the order you’ve open escrow. It is a 2 step process, first you get prequalified with our exclusive lender. Then, you wire your $2,500 deposit to escrow.

Is the $2,500 deposit an extra fee or a deposit?

The $2,500 deposit is NOT a fee. It gets applied to the purchase of your property. Once you select a property, the deposit becomes the earnest money of the property you’ve chosen, now adhering to all earnest money regulations.

Do I get my deposit back if CFS can’t find a property that suites me?

Absolutely. You will get your deposit back, minus any wire fees, charged by the escrow company. No questions asked.
