19 Fatal Turnkey RE Investor Mistakes with Terry Kerr & Liz Nowlin
You want cash flow that is stable and durable. Today’s guests, Terry Kerr and Liz Nowlin from Mid South Home Buyers, tell us how both they and Memphis, TN delivers. We discuss the 19 due diligence questions that you need to ask when you’re vetting a turnkey real estate investing provider. When you purchase real estate “turnkey”, the property is already renovated and tenanted. That way, your provider maintains more risk before you purchase the property. Learn about the neighborhood “sweet spot”, little-known differences between a $125,000 property and a $62,000 property, and the importance of in-house property management. Find out how to avoid lengthy vacancies. Does your provider mark up materials? Learn about when your provider makes guarantees about your property’s occupancy and renovation.
