  • next meeting Tuesday, September 25, 2018 6:-9pm

    We’re getting ready for our meeting this Tuesday, September 25th at 6:30-9pm!
    We’ll start off with Networking and Marcos delicious Pizza

    1. All too often I refer folks to John for Private (used to be called Hard) money loans on Real Estate and occasionally he can't finance the "Deal". So they ask me Can you give me some other Lenders?
    Well the simple answer is:
    If John won't do the "Deal", then it ain't a DEAL! You can go back and negotiate what John says he WILL do! 
    So, let's listen to John, he'll go through his site and algorithms to see what we should be putting together for Terms on our next Deal. He'll also update us on the many deals he's financed recently.

    2. Then we’ll be hearing from Len Theran a professional loss adjuster. Len combines an extensive engineering background with over thirty years experience in adjusting property insurance claims for US policyholders.
    "If you've got a loss and think you can work with your Insurance Company, think again, I couldn't and I'm glad I did end up using a Loss Adjuster. This Adjuster got me back to where I was, before a Tenant had "accidentally" set an apartment on fire." Mike

    Len’s technical and business background gives him a unique perspective when adjusting industrial losses. Of particular value is his ability to understand and focus on business problems that result from a loss and utilize insurance benefits to help resolve them. As a result, he has handled many significant industrial, commercial, and building losses.

    3. I attended an Open House for an upcoming Auction this week and I was surprised at the discrepancies in what Investors and Home Buyers had for rehab costs sooooo We’ll review what it does cost for rehab? Which ratios you should use? And how to estimate your HARD Maximum Offer!!!

    *Finally, "If you're looking to buy your dream home, your next lucrative flip, or your "golden goose" rental property, my mom Roberta will find exactly what you're looking for and at the best price." Victoria

    We look forward to seeing you Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 6:30-9pm

  • 7 key Rules of managing a Property
  • Screen well and don’t discriminate. You can eliminate 90% of your potential issues by setting high standards and screening applicants thoroughly.
  • Make rent payments easy and automatic. This action improves business the most by offering (and requiring) Tenants to pay rent online.
  • Have a Rock Solid Lease and stick to it. Your ability to be successful is highly dependent on the strength and fairness of your lease.
  • Inspect Property once a quarter. Usually, there is some sort of repair or issue, or regular maintenance item once a quarter that needs attention .
  • Be Fair and honest and make timely repairs. The same goes for owning properties, as for owning any other business – to have a successful business, quality and trust are the cornerstones to customer service.
  • Know how and when to use “notices”. Proper use of notices, above all, is the most common pain point for Landlords and Managers. Every state has their own requirements, and quite frankly, it’s a hassle to give “proper notice” before visiting the property or, terminating a lease. But, as certain as death and taxes are in life, so are the requirements for proper notice. 
  • Only withhold the deposit for actual, itemized damages.
  • Occasionally, something bad will happen. Perhaps it’s a Tenant who fails to give proper notice of leaving, or maybe they’re abandoning the lease completely. It is important that you withhold the deposit for actual, itemized damages (material or financial). 

If you’re looking for a thorough analysis of your Property and Market before you Sell or Buy, you could contact [email protected] I’m sure you’ll be as impressed as the Clients she’s worked with. Testiomnials like:

 “We’ve got space for you any time you can make it Florida to stay with us. You were fantastic Selling our Home quickly and for the right price!” J.A.

“I can’t believe you “fixed” what we thought were big problems with our house, got it Sold right away and got us into our new Home!” R.M

We look forward to see you soon.
