Driving through the neighborhoods, you can imagine that it’s what Travis Heights probably felt like 15-20 years ago before it started to turn over.

Why We Chose It

Parker Lane is significantly under-served by rental properties. While only 15% of residents own their homes, the market isn’t meeting demand. At Liquid, we have identified the area as being ideal for investment in single family rental properties and small mixed-use commercial properties along the corridors.

It can be difficult to find good deals in the Parker Lane area as anything that hits the market tends to be snapped up quickly. This is especially true with the fourplex and duplex listings that become available. To combat this, Liquid is actively messaging home owners, particularly those that do not live in the properties they own. Our goal is for Liquid QOZB II to acquire 20+ single family residential rentals in the Parker Lane census tract.
