Show 83 Can’t Visit Properties? Get Help.

Show 83 With William Morales:


Having boots on the ground


Today’s show is about finding boots on the ground

I know you might be thinking, like I do, who has time to look for properties?

I have a full time job, family, etc and I don’t have the time.

Most of us have said this at one time or another. But with Technology, There are companies that out there now, the world has shrunk that we have these services to help us, in other words, we can outsource visiting houses.

Now these are suggestions that I have done, investors I know have done, but whatever feels comfortable for you keep doing it.

I’m not saying don’t ever visit a property, it’s good experience I’ve done my share of visiting houses, at one time from 2008 through early 2009

I was a real estate agent and my job was to show houses/apartments to prospective tenants, after a while you can learn more about a property, what needs major repairs, or cosmetics. You can make unbelievable contacts in real estate by being an agent.

In New York Real Estate News –Rent-regulated lease buyouts less appealing to city owners, experts say

 On Today’s Show I talk about

1.       Landlords pulling back on offering buyouts to tenants

2.       Finding boots of the ground.
