Want a successful, cash-flowing rental property? Make sure you don’t overlook the tenant screening process or hire the “cheap” contractor. Otherwise, you could be dealing with floods, evictions, project delays, and other issues. Fortunately, today’s guest has already dealt with these headaches so that YOU don’t have to! Welcome back to the Real Estate Rookie podcast! Investor Dan Stowell has endured not one but TWO horror stories during his real estate journey. As you’re going to learn today, the consequences of placing a bad tenant or hiring the wrong contractor can be severe. After a tenant caused $47,000 in water damage (and didn’t have renters insurance!) and a renovation on his primary residence turned into a 1,000-day rehab, Dan had every reason to give up on real estate investing. Instead, he tackled each challenge and used these expensive lessons to make him an even better investor! In this episode, Dan offers several tips that will prepare you for anything that could be thrown your way. You’ll learn how to screen a tenant, how to avoid bad contractors, and, most importantly, how to react when things go south. Stay tuned until the very end to find out what became of Dan’s problematic properties! In This Episode We Cover: How Dan survived $47K in water damage and a 1,000-day rehab (on two different projects!) The REAL cost of placing a bad tenant in your rental property How to improve your tenant screening process (and red flags to watch out for!) The BEST way to build out a scope of work for your next rehab project Why you shouldn’t hire the “cheap” contractor for your home renovation project Why documentation is key when dealing with tenant and contractor issues And So Much More!

Many people buy rental properties for the cash flow, but today’s guest took it to another level—dropping out of college to go all-in on real estate investing. Find out how he brings in several thousand dollars of profit each month and how YOU can replicate his investing strategy! Welcome back to the Real Estate Rookie podcast! Like many new investors, Bailey Kramer started out small—converting long-term rentals into Airbnbs and co-hosting these properties for someone else.

First off, kudos to you for taking the plunge into the world of real estate. It's an exciting and potentially rewarding journey you've embarked upon. As someone who's been through the ups and downs of this industry, I can totally relate to where you're at right now. https://www.houzz.com/pro/waxpaperie Starting out in real estate can be a bit overwhelming, but remember, everyone has to start somewhere. The fact that you're seeking advice and connecting with others in the field shows that you're already on the right track. https://www.cakeresume.com/me/wax-paperie

The purchase, sale, borrowing, or even leasing options for a piece of commercial property often hinge upon the commercial real estate valuation https://cesvaluations.com/value of the building. Assessing that value, however, is no simple matter. Commercial appraisals are generally more subjective than residential reviews, whether it’s an apartment building, an industrial complex, a retail shopping center, or an owner-occupied business structure.
