Viewer Discretion: Landlord Discovers Crazy, Pizza-Loving, Cat Lady Hoarder Hideout »

Close

This is just too good not to share. Or too bad. Depends on your perspective, I guess. When my long-time friend and local turnkey rental guy Chris Wark finally had to evict a school teacher he’d been renting to for seven years, he had no idea the disturbing mess he’d uncover after she moved out. And trust me, […]

Video: The Haunted House Rehab (and a Double Dog Dare) »

So not too long ago I was engaging in some masterminding, a bit of business building and a heap of tom-foolery in Baltimore with some close friends. And while there I got the chance to go see a bunch of Craig Fuhr’s rehab projects one afternoon. Let me just say… . There’s nothing like spending […]

Jackpot: Pink Baths, Buyers Out the Wazoo (A Case Study) »

Meet Brian… Brian’s a short-sale rehabber from Milwaukee.  As a “fix and flip” guy, Brian gets giddy at the chance to turn a diamond in the rough junker into a bright, shiny showpiece. He does it over and over again, and it turns out he’s gotten pretty darn good at it over the years. And […]

This is the short story of Scotty’s screaming deal on Barbara, as told by Scotty and KISS Flipper Bob Norton.

A few short weeks ago I happen to be gallivanting the Dallas, TX area with the red heads (for a friend’s wedding, slash weekend getaway) and happen to catch lunch with one Gary Grubbs. Gary is a KISS Flipping success story who had just that day (right before lunch actually) closed his first ever deal […]

$50,000 Profit From a Textbook KISS Flip (Case Study & Market Update) »

So last week Bob Norton and I got on the horn with KISS Flipper Mark DiPonio and did a case study interview walking through the details of his latest flip deal, coupled with a current-market update from the trenches. It was a solid session and we decided to open up to the whole REI Tips […]

Riddle Me Profits, Batman! (Audio Case Study) »

I recently had the chance for another “deal stories” interview, this time with Patrick Riddle of Charleston, SC. (No, that’s not really him in the picture.  We’re all fans of old-school Batman, right?  I mean, who isn’t?…) Our interview is a case study of two of his deals at 3015 Morningdale and 1972 Teakwood…each with […]

Oklahoma Newbie Flips 2 Short Sales, Scores Nicely (Listen) »

Here’s the latest in my “man on the street” series of interviews. It came about after Cory Boatright told me about one of his Shortsaleology members, Ron Harris. Ron’s a relative new investor from Oklahoma who’d recently flipped a couple of short sales netting him more than enough to completely pay off all his business […]

Jersey Cop’s 1st Deal, Makes $0, Big Success? »

I just knocked out a quick, spur of the moment phone interview with an investor friend of mine named Colleen. Things you might find interesting about this: She’s a Jersey cop who commonly handles evictions.  In fact I interviewed her on her cell phone while on her way to do a set out. This was […]
