My name is Tyler McCracken and I’ve been actively investing in residential and commercial real estate in Charlotte, North Carolina since 1994. I turned my first home into a rental and was off to the races. I’ve owned 100+ rental units maxing out with 59 held at one time. I’ve wholesaled and performed many rehab to retail deals.
Gray Dog Investments, Inc. is my hard money / private money lending operation with hundreds of loans funded since 2003. If you are seeking funding send me an email to: tyler@graydoginvestments(d0t)com. I’m also an active investor using self-directed IRA’s for lending, landlording, and/or the merchandising of property in Charlotte, NC.
- Owned, managed, and renovated single family residential rentals & small multifamily apartments ranging from 5 to 14 units in size.
- Performed Rehab to Retail Renovations consisting of additions, full gut, structural, and/or new construction with single family homes priced from $75k to $850k in the Charlotte, North Carolina real estate market.
- Wholesaled investment homes.
- Funded flippers, wholesalers, landlords, and rehabbers with their acquisitions and renovations of single family homes, multifamily, and commercial investment properties in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I believe a healthy balance (of different styles) of investing in real estate is the proper way to create positive cash flow, minimize tax exposures, and create true wealth through the power of compounding. I view real estate investments (rental property) as Long Term Retirement Packages. Flipping, Wholesaling, Rehabbing, and Lending with real estate are methods of creating Short Term Cash Flow Generators to fund ones daily lifestyle and future investments whether your investing in Charlotte, North Carolina or anywhere else in the world.
