Investing 101: Surviving a Natural Disaster

Hi Everyone! Sorry, it's been awhile since I last posted (like the end of last year!). It's been crazy busy...to say the least. :( If you're subscribed to my weekly newsletter, you'll know I've been working around the clock. Been fixing up homes like crazy. Unfortunately, I had a flood in my area...twice. It was completely unexpected. It had not flooded like this for over 15 years. But it happened...and I'm getting through it, slowly but surely.

Marketing 101: Does Direct Mail Work?

One of the questions I get the most, "Does direct mail really work?" And my answer to that question: it depends. On the person. In theory, direct mail does work. But you have to be consistent. And patient. In advertising, it takes about 5-7 times to reach a person before they buy from you. Whether it be from direct mail, on the phone, in person or a combination of all—these are the statistics. So going in, you have to know that. (Note: If you've been reading this blog, you'll know Read more [...]

Done Deal: 3/2 Singlewide Mobile Home In a Park

(Note: Since I’ve received a lot of requests for more case studies, I thought I’d make a post on another one. Enjoy!) Like many of my deals nowadays, this lead came from a park manager. And the funny thing about it? The park manager had initially gave it to a family member who bought the home from another family behind on lot rent. Unfortunately, this family member changed their mind and decided not to take on the home. So I got the call. When I talked to the park manager, I found Read more [...]

Getting Back to What’s Important

So, it's been awhile since I've really written here. I'll be honest: I've been busy. Really busy. Recently, I attended a business conference. It's been years since I've gone to one.

But one that took time. Coming back, I've hit reality. It's time to get back to business. As mentioned here, I'm still Read more [...]
