KERREL GOMES TAPPED TO LEAD NEW WESTERN'S VIRGINIA BEACH BRANCH New Western, a source of fix-and-flip residential investment properties, has announced the opening of its first Virginia office and 52nd local market, in Virginia Beach, to be led by Kerrel Gomes, General Manager. "Virginia Beach is an exciting market for us to enter as it begins to turn to favor rentals over buying," said Kurt Carlton, Co-Founder and President of New Western. "With a local naval base, Virginia Beach has a steady and strong rental market that is recession-resistant, and allows New Western to identify homes in need of repair that local investors can fix and flip or rent. We are confident about the opportunities for investors, buyers and sellers in Virginia Beach." For investors, the Virginia Beach area's historic charm presents an opportunity to revitalize aging homes' infrastructure, and return them to market at affordable prices, as New Western's rehabbed homes are nearly 31% more affordable than a new build. Gomes, who will serve as General Manager, began his real estate career in New Western's Raleigh, North Carolina, office when it first launched and brings that experience and expertise to the Virginia Beach office opening. "I started my career in real estate, working alongside my father who was a contractor for fix-and-flip properties," Gomes said. "Working with him inspired me to pursue the real estate investment market full-time, which brought me to New Western's Raleigh team where I learned and became part of an incredibly talented and amazing group of people. Now I have the opportunity to run our Virginia Beach office, working with our team of investors to bring supply to an in-demand market and revitalizing an area that is filled with historic charm." Since 2008, New Western has bought and sold more than $15 billion worth of residential real estate by leveraging data and local market insight to stock its marketplace with exclusive investment properties. New Western's marketplace connects more than 150,000 local investors looking to rehab houses with sellers.
