269: Rookie to Real Estate Investor: College Rentals, Airbnbs, & Plumbing Problems
Don’t know what to do AFTER closing on a house? You’ve found your market, done your due diligence, passed your inspections, and now you’re asking, “what’s next?” Two of our three mentees are about to close on their first (and next) rental properties, but they don’t have to go in blind, thanks to the expert guidance of experienced investors Ashley and Tony. But we’re not just talking about a post-closing checklist. Instead, we’ll get into the nitty-gritty of getting a new short-term rental, how to handle inherited tenants, when to switch your investing strategy, and what happens when you discover a BIG plumbing problem in a property.
We’re back to conclude our final meeting with our ninety-day mentees. Brandon, Lawrence, and Melanie have made MASSIVE strides to become real estate investors. Brandon and Melanie come back with deals under contract and close to closing, while Lawrence is looking to switch up strategies and potentially re-enter the cash-flowing world of college rentals. All the mentees have taken significant steps to success in just three months, and you can do it too!
Stick around if you’re trying to get your next rental property under contract, as Brandon, Lawrence, and Melanie discuss why having community, accountability, and pressure for success took their investing to the NEXT LEVEL.
