KANSAS CITY REHAB INVESTMENT PROPERTIES: LOW ENTRY POINTS AND DUAL EXIT STRATEGY:

Through our years of investing and servicing investors we have developed relations with local banks, real estate agents, and wholesalers to provide us with great properties at low prices. We have certain criteria all of our homes must have and only certain zip codes we invest in. WE ARE BUYING HOMES IN KANSAS CITY FOR .20 TO .30 CENTS ON THE DOLLAR, USUALLY BETWEEN 25-80K. WE ALSO DO NOT PROVIDE PROPERTIES THAT WE WONT MANAGE. WE STAY OUT OF BAD AREAS AND DO NOT PROVIDE INNER CITY LOW END PRODUCT. 

We also have a dual exit strategy on most homes we provide for our investors. The homes we buy and the zip codes we buy all have re sale comps. We will get you into investments rehabbed for 40-50k that we can sell for 75-85k and if we do not sell then we can rent, owner finance, section 8 for 850-900 a month. This is a dual exit strategy. We have perfected the exit strategies and the management and keeping the assets producing income. 

We have three types of investments that we specialize in: 

1. TURNKEY RENTAL OPTION: in this option the houses would be completed, and rented and generate income the day you close. 
Price will vary depending on property and rents the property can generate. on average houses that rent for 800-950 a month would sell for 35-65k turnkey depending on area and property. 

2. TURNKEY REHAB OPTION: THIS OPTION IS COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT THE INVESTOR KNOWS ALL THE NUMBER AND GETS IN FROM THE BEGINNING. In this option you would purchase a foreclosure that we find from the bank using your funds, we will give you a bid to rehab it use our crews to fix and rent it. In this option you wouldn't be paying a profit margin to the seller so your outlay is less you would get in on the ground floor. The average outlay would be 25-55k depending on area and property. In this scenario you would now be able to sell the property for 35-85k and you are now the wholesaler. MOST INVESTORS ARE JUMPING ON THIS MODEL. THEY LOVE BEING INVOLVED, THE TRANSPARENCY, AND THE LOWER COST BASIS IS ATTRACTIVE. 

3. RETAIL FLIP OPTION: in this option we are purchasing houses that can sell for 150k or less. More desirable neighborhoods, higher comps, and we are buying them out of foreclosure for 65-100k and remodeling them and selling them retail to homeowner buyers for 110-180k. 

With low entry points, high rents and cash flow, experienced rehab and property management companies , experienced wholesalers and Realtor, paperwork systems and processes in place your chances of success have greatly improved.

Robots are Starting to Do Showings

vre 80 stillA company called Zenplace in San Francisco is using robots to help its agents conduct showings. When people arrive at the unit, they’re greeted by what amounts to an iPad on a mobile stand that leads them around, but it’s personalized; it’s the agent’s image and voice that people see and hear. Other companies are coming out with their own versions of this.

It’s a good question whether this type of automation will take off. As people get used to buying goods at automated stores in which everything is done with your phone or credit card and no employees are around, it’s feasible mobile iPads will do the trick at showings.

aa

Screen grab from Zenplace video

Whether you like the idea or not, it’s a trend that’s poised to hit your industry. There are other tech trends you’ll be faced with whether you like them or not. One is a kind of virtual tour that’s more immersive than what you get by just wearing goggles. You get an additional tactile component, because you’re wearing gloves with sensors. Now you feel the door handle when you open the refrigerator as well as see it in multiple dimensions.

Will this be the norm six years from now? Who knows, but now that the genie’s out of the bottle, it’s not likely to get put back in.

REALTOR® Magazine spent a few days at CES in Las Vegas two weeks ago and brought back coverage of all types of tech innovations coming to real estate. CES stands for Consumer Electronics Show and it’s the big showcase each year at which companies try to wow people with what the’re cooking up for us.

You can learn more about CES and also about real estate robots in the latest Voice for Real Estate video. The video also looks at something the U.S. Department of Labor did a few weeks ago that could eventually be important to you because it promises to get the real estate industry one step closer to setting up association health plans (AHPs) for independent contractors.

The agency proposed adding “working owner” to the definition of employer for purposes of setting up AHPs, which would enable sole proprietors and small business owners to ban together for insurance under the large group market, which could make coverage available more cheaply than under the small group market. There remain a lot of hurdles, but this was a crucial step in the right direction.

The video also looks at the three-day federal government shutdown and what could happen to your pipeline of homes sales if there’s another one in a few weeks, which could happen since the short-term budget law expires in early February. If your buyers are applying for FHA-backed financing, they would probably be okay, although processing might take a bit longer. But if they[re buying a new house in a flood area, they might not be able to get flood insurance, and that would mean a delay in  closing.

Do Personality Assessments Work? Sometimes.

@maialisa, 2016. pixabay.com

I’ve always been skeptical of personality assessments. After taking the DISC twice—once getting a D/C and more recently getting a high, nearly even I/D—I found that both results matched my personality on some levels and conflicted on others. This is where my skepticism come in. There’s truth in assessments to varying degrees.

Whether or not you’re looking into assessments for personal insight or to use as a tool for hiring, it’s important to find the right one for you. Recently, I wrote a piece for REALTOR® Magazine on EQ vs. IQ, which examines the concept of emotional intelligence and how it relates to working with clients. I interviewed experts in the field who offered actionable tips for getting in touch with your EQ and applying it to your job in real estate. The article is divided into three parts, and in the last section—which is targeted at broker-owners or hiring managers—I dive into how to recruit high-EQ candidates.

As part of my research, I took Keller Williams Realty’s Keller Personality Assessment (KPA), which I found to be the most accurate and enlightening assessment I’ve experienced to date. It encapsulated so many idiosyncrasies of my personality that it was astonishing. But I shouldn’t be surprised since their business model is all about building teams that work well together. What better way to get a window into a person’s true self than by asking them to take an assessment to learn how they’ll fit in with your group? The key word in that question is “window.”

Whether you’re using DISC, a brokerage tool like KW’s KPA, or another test, such as the Caliper Profile, look at it as one piece of the puzzle (e.g. don’t put all your eggs in one basket). You still need to make sure you’re recruiting the right person or making a good hire. Here are some takeaways after taking the KPA:

Know what you’re assessing. Hiring someone just because you like them or you “click” isn’t always a good idea. Really consider the skillset the job requires before administering the assessment. Know what you’re looking for and have a checklist. Make sure you’re judging candidates not only on their strengths but how those strengths might serve as either pros or cons in a specific position.

Understand that an assessment might not tell the whole story. Some candidates can overthink their responses when taking an assessment, which may affect accuracy. That’s why it’s imperative to ask follow-up questions pertaining to the results of any tests you administer. Ask the candidate how they feel about the results and how accurate they think they are. Ask for examples pertaining to candidates’ assessed strengths as they’ve played out in real-life or on-the-job.

Don’t put people in a box. I hate using that box cliché, but it’s true. Many assessments cement a person as one way or another, failing to consider how one trait might inform other characteristics. For instance, my high responsiveness, spontaneity, and logical problem-solving skills, coupled with my desire for independence, means I work best in environments that are busy, active, and give me a range of responsibilities to manage. But looking at each of those traits independently, you might not draw that conclusion.

In-person interviews are best. It’s much easier to read someone’s comfort level when you see their body language. You can also give them insight into your company culture. And according to Karina Loken, president of The Loken Group with Keller Williams Luxury International in Houston, if a candidate feels your office is a good fit for them, it’s always good for your organization.

A Closer Look at CES’s Game Changers

ces-logoAt CES 2018, the consumer electronics’ mega show in Las Vegas this week, I hung out with robots, tried out the latest VR headsets, and talked—yes, talked—to a host of appliances, from a bathroom mirror to a refrigerator. After scouring the show floor, I found several products this year that hold real potential to shake up the real estate market. In the video below, I outlined what I think is some of the best tech I saw at the show this year. But of course, my rankings are subjective so use the poll below to vote for your favorite!
