Seller Financing, Squatters, and Is Becoming an Agent Worth It?
Does seller financing apply to down payments? What happens when you buy a rental with squatters who refuse to leave? And is getting your real estate license even worth it? The world of real estate investing isn’t always as cut and dried as it seems, but running a profitable portfolio doesn’t need to be a massive headache. In this Rookie Reply episode, we’ll go through the common pain points that rookie landlords are dealing with and shed light on some frequently asked questions only experienced investors (like Ashley and Tony) have the knowledge to answer.
If you’ve ever wondered what a property survey is or if you should charge a cleaning fee to your tenants, stick around! This time, Ashley and Tony will answer when you do (and don’t) need a property survey on your latest rental property purchase. From there, they debate the pros and cons of getting your real estate license (becoming an agent) as a rookie investor. We also touch on the ever-fun topic of what to do when non-leased tenants won’t leave your property, how to seller finance a down payment, and whether or not charging a “cleaning fee” at move-in is a wise idea.
If you want Ashley and Tony to answer a real estate question, you can post in the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group! Or, call us at the Rookie Request Line (1-888-5-ROOKIE).
