My newest property purchase at Akers Avenue in Akron, Ohio is a smaller property than I normally buy, but I was able to pay cash for it. I’m going to talk about why I bought it sight unseen and without due diligence from the seller, plus I’ll share the tools I used to help me analyze the property.
It never gets old to hear someone come back from what looks like utter defeat, but instead, they’re smashing goals as Sadhana Sabharwal has done. After a terrible divorce that left her with nothing except three sons to support and a mortgage payment, Sadhana turned herself into the Single Mom Millionaire.
When everybody on the team understands the goals and objectives of every project, it’s easier to smoothly move through the checklist. I’m going to lay out my company’s 9-point takeover plan that we follow for every project, whether it’s a single resi or a commercial apartment building.
Dividing your team into clearly delineated roles will let you take on bigger and bigger projects. I’m going to lay out the 6 divisions in my business, and explain the responsibilities that each department takes on that have helped us get to 2700 units.
If you’re a landlord with less than 10 units, and you find all of your free time consumed with your properties, you might be tempted to hire a property manager. But there’s a more affordable way if you simply build a better system for your properties from the very beginning of your business.
We’ve recently purchased an off-market 80-unit building in Ohio, and I want you to understand what I’m looking for when I walk through a property. I’m going to share what you should look for when you inspect a new property during the due diligence period, some of the problems you might encounter if the property has had long-term tenants, and some precautions you’ll need to take because of COVID.
