FAR 203 Let’s Get Privy!

Expected Air Date: 11/1/18


All right sports fans, the World Series is over, it’s time to stock up for the winter and I’m not referring to groceries, I’m referring to inventory if you’re in the house flipping business. Pretty much any time is a good time to buy if you’re buying right. Coming up today is Jane Garvey, one of the founding leaders for all real estate investor associations in Chicago, IL and nationally. We are excited to hear from her.

And then we will hear from Benson Juarez, one of the founding partners at Privy, a new real estate software platform that is going to blow your mind. Finally! Someone with the mind of an investor has given us non-realtors real-time access to MLS data. Stay tuned to hear about it.

  • Curtis, Murphy, NC, “I have a neighbor who inherited his mom’s house over in Franklin. He doesn’t have the time or money to fix it up. He says it’s not bad, but his mom lived alone the past 15 years and there are several minor things that need to be fixed. He just wants it gone - he doesn’t want to rent it out and every month the payment just comes out of the estate. The loan balance is a little more than $83,000. It’s probably worth about $110,000. This seemed like a great opportunity until I listened to a few of your shows and learned some things about the numbers. Do you have any suggestions? I’ve been wanting to do a deal, but just don’t know what can be done here. (We asked offline and the payments are $476 PITI and the fair market rent is $750. The repairs to rent ready condition are estimated at $6500. Also ten years left on loan).

Motivational Thoughts for the day

    • It’s not about “perfect.” It’s about “effort.” And when you bring that effort every day, transformation happens. That’s how change occurs.
