Ever wonder how "Turnkey Investing" REALLY works? Well, let me briefly explain...
Turnkey Rental companies offer you a product. Hopefully the work is completed, hopefully the tenant is vetted and actually pays, and hopefully the management company which is sometimes ALSO the "Turnkey" Company actually does a good job and collects rent and manages the property appropriately. The 'good' ones make this happen consistently and provide a nice, profitable, hands-off investment for their clients, aka you as the investor.
You as a buyer don't know how much the turnkey company paid for the asset, how much work went into it cost-wise, you can't really have a good gauge of the quality of the work other than what you can see to the naked eye. And you don't know how much profit the turnkey provider ends up making in the end of your investment.
Now comes Lee Smith from Spouses Buying Houses, which you can find at www.spousesbuyinghosues.com
Lee offers full disclosure throughout this investment process, he provides all the same services that a turnkey provider offers, but you make all the decisions and you control the flow of the asset, from start to finish.
Lee finds you the houses, you set the offering price. You get a full HD video of each asset you are interested in.
Lee offers contractor bids on the project, you decide what you want to fix or not. The entire process is document in full 1080HD video, the work is quality control by Lee and his team, and the work gets done right through his large network of experienced contractors, AT THE BEST PRICE.
Lee rents out and manages the properties for you.
OR, you can control how much or how little Lee and his team handles for you. You want to swing the hammer? Go for it.
You want to rent it out and manage yourself? Go for it.
Full disclosure remote or local investor investing in one of the countries greatest markets.
Hear about it on this awesome podcast!
This AWESOME episode is with one of my long term contractors, friends, and investor partners Tim Jastrab of TMJ Asset Services on his ability to HUNT, STALK, and KILL some of the very few UNICORN deals left in existence and make some killer profits on his fix and flip deals!!!
I think the moral of the story is that making money in real estate investing all comes down to relationships.
Know the right buyers, sellers, investors, contractors, partners, money people, brokers and unicorns! It's a people business!!
Tim is a "newer" investor, originally kicking one fix and flips "A**" back before the crash of 2007, and now back at it again with 3 more under his belt in the last year and a half or so, making some clean killer profits.
If you want to have a unicorn horn in mounted on your wall someday, you don't want to miss this episode!
So I give a lot of hype to this conference... Here's a second opinion of what another investor thinks as we chat on day 3 of the conference, which also happens to be the day we are packing up to go home.
Meet Lee Smith, an Indianapolis investor and friend of mine, who owns and manages 150 units for himself and other investors.
Stay tuned, check it out, listen up on and rate me on iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, YouTube, SoundCloud, WHATEVER YOU CAN!
So I found an opportunity just before leaving for the IMN conference that is a 6 house package deal in the Chicago suburbs.
It's still available as of release of this podcast. The seller is offering to finance the deal for a 1 year term at 8% interest amortized over 30 years with a 1 year balloon on it.
Let's review the numbers and go over some of the value add/exit strategies on it.
Is it worth going after?
Review the numbers with me and let me know what you think...

If you have questions or criticisms, let's hear them.
Maybe YOU want it, maybe we can partner on it, maybe you can be the private lender on the deal.
