How to Use the Investment Property Feed

Key takeaways

How to Use the Investment Property Feed

The Awning property feed is a curated list of properties selected and analyzed by our property team and featured for their quality. Every property that appears on the feed has been individually reviewed with taxes, insurance, estimated rents, and other details verified.

What Awning Property Feed Is

The property feed is a hand-picked list of properties for investors. It’s like having an agent in every state sending you the very best investment deals on the market. The property feed is available in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.

Investors don’t need an account and there is no cost associated with using the free investment property feed by Awning.

How The Awning Property Feed Works

Awning property feed pulls properties directly from the MLS and an algorithm analyzes the properties. Select properties are then chosen by our team of analysts and reviewed for accuracy. The best of these properties, represent less than 1% of available properties, and are considered good enough to be featured on the property feed.

Investors can make adjustments to all of the estimates directly on the listing page or to all results by signing in and selecting “Calculator Settings” from the drop down on the profile menu in the top-right corner of the screen.

The Awning property feed does not include off-market deals and there is no way for owners, investors, or agents to list or promote properties directly on Awning.

Filtering Awning Property Feed

Filtering properties is the key to getting the most out of Awning property feed.

The first toggle you’ll notice is Traditional vs Vacation:

  • Traditional: Long-term rentals with 1-year or longer lease.
  • Vacation: Short-term rentals through platforms like Airbnb and VRBO.

Switching this toggle changes the types of properties that you’ll see. It’s very rare for the same properties to appear for both Traditional and Vacation rentals. 

Additional filters visible on the feed page include:

  • Price
  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms
  • Home Type
  • Year Built
  • Cap Rate

These filters will help you eliminate some properties and narrow down the results.

Additional filters you can use include:

  • Sq. Ft
  • Lot Size
  • Home Type
  • Max HOA fee
  • Pool
  • Keywords in the Listing
  • Cash on Cash Return
  • Appreciation Projection
  • Monthly Revenue
  • Neighborhood Score
  • School Score
  • Renovations
  • Days on Market

Once you’ve narrowed down the results, you can start to order your results. 

With Awning you can order the feed by:

  • Date listed
  • Price
  • Cap rate
  • 10-Year return
  • Year built
  • Property Square Footage
  • Lot Size

If you include too many filters you may end up seeing no results. In that case it’s best to speak to an Awning agent about having our team look for listings on your behalf and let you know when they come on the market. 

Browsing the Property Feed Map

While you need to scroll through multiple pages to see all of the properties in the feed, the map shows you every single property that’s available. You can use it to narrow down your search geographically, which is especially useful if you’re looking for a location near a specific tourist attraction. You can also change the data displayed on the map for each listing by changing the dropdown menu that’s preset to price.

The Awning feed map can display:

  • Price
  • Cap Rate
  • 10-year Return

Looking at the map is also a great way to understand a neighborhood. If you see cap rates drop off from one street to the next, it could mean that the neighborhood, schools, or walkability scores are changing quickly. It will also help you understand how properties are priced relative to comparable homes nearby.

Property Cards and Property Interactions

Every property card that’s displayed has the option of rejecting or liking the property. Not only will this prevent you from seeing the same property multiple times, but it can help you save properties for further analysis.

When you click into a property page you’ll notice there are a series of graphs and tables that can help you analyze the investment. You can toggle between vacation and long-term rentals to see how the property would perform for different use cases. You can also go in and change any of the assumptions, like the mortgage rate or property management fee, which will change the calculations and tables for the listings.

Takeaway

The Awning property feed is a great way to analyze on-market properties for both their short-term and long-term rental potential. You can browse specific markets, filter results, apply your own assumptions and start with the very best properties on the market with the Awning feed.
