    This was a good overview; I can’t wait to get deeper!

  2. Taj Mohamed says:

    Great stuff!

  3. Jeff Clayton says:

    So,the thrust of this lesson is:
    “If asking is well below market find out why and (maybe) go look”

    I’m wondering if the 200 unit vacant apt. complex could now be negotiated down in price further and then wholesaled to someone who wants to tackle that humongus renovation?

  4. Scott Burton says:

    your the man Ron. absolutely amazing. thanks.

  13. John Rogers says:

    Look for properties with a problem(s). Stay away from pretty properties. Stay away from war zones, unrealistic owners and unrealistic prices. Good start. Thanks.

  14. Stanley Chambers says:

    This is a good lesson, even thou the math part, somewhat, was the cap rate with no numbers. This lesson will save a lot of money for me. Thanks, Ron.

  15. Tom Pratto says:

    Excellent review.

  16. Todd Smith says:

    Thanks for the quick prescreen tips.

  17. Todd Smith says:

    For the Memphis property, why couldn’t you have the contractor go an do the inspections and estimates alone and/or have somebody send you video? Perhaps even do live feed of the video?

    • Arthur Hardy says:

      Its much better to have more than one set of eyes on it

      • Trevor Morgan says:

        There’s also the old saying: Never ask the barber if you need a haircut. By sending the contractor or someone you are going to hire to do the work to be your initial eyes and ears it puts you behind their agenda. You need to see the property and know the requirements, budget, etc – it’s your money and your project. Get their opinion, but balance it with yours.

  18. Christopher Carrington says:

    Mr.Ron great start,its getting clearer too my understanding.

  24. Stanley Chambers says:

    Is 20% vacancy of a 150-unit apartment buildings something to considers and why?

  25. Barry Conley says:

    This is great, I have a commercial property listed at this time and plan to go after more. I’m glad I was able to see this.

  26. Keith Weaver says:

    I’ll bet purchasing commercial properties are easier than buying residential homes.

  27. Tom Holyfield says:

    I bet they are too…gonna find out for sure.

  28. Janet Levitt says:

    i like the price per unit concept it makes it easy and more manageable as far as recognizing the dead

  41. Ijaz Mirza says:

    Screening quickly will reduce time

  42. Aaron Anderson says:

    I love doing the math evaluation. It makes it a lot easier to know if you have a good deal.

  43. Aaron Anderson says:

    The beauty of the math evaluation is that your decision is really “cut and dry.”

    There is no emotion, there is no capacity for error. Either it is good, or it is not!

  44. Jacob Mason says:

    Was really good

  45. Aaron Anderson says:

    This lesson is certainly worth reviewing and taking some notes.
