    The Biggest Trap in Real Estate Investing

    The Biggest Trap in Real Estate Investing

    What is the biggest trap in real estate investing?
    How can you avoid it?
    What lessons can you take from what has happened to others in this scenario?
    In this week's episode, Shawn tells the unfortunate story of clients of his, and what happened to them happens more often than you would think. Imagine buying property at the Courthouse Auction. You think you've bought your dream home and, not only that, but you bought it at a GREAT price!  Then, all of the sudden, you learn that in order to keep this dream home or investment property, you need to pay MORE money to eliminate more liens and mortgages! How is this possible? 
    Shawn tells the unfortunate story of how an investment of about $400 would have saved his clients $180,000!  What could these clients have done differently? What could each of the parties involved have done differently?
    We have discussed these issues in previous episodes, including:
    Episode 73 - Surplus Funds and Associations; https://yesnerlawpodcast.libsyn.com/episode-73-surplus-funds-and-associations Episode 71 - Listener Questions; https://yesnerlawpodcast.libsyn.com/episode-71-listener-questions-answered  Let us know if you enjoy this episode and, if so, please share it with your friends!

    How Much Should You Tip?

    How Much Should You Tip?

    When do you tip?
    Do you tip based on the bill?  Pre-tax or post-tax?
    Do you increase or decrease your tip based on service? 
    What is the minimum or average tip you typically give?
    This week's episode is inspired by a listener / previous guest Sue Reynolds (you can hear her episode, 248, here: https://yesnerlawpodcast.libsyn.com/when-you-cant-pay-your-mortgage-episode-248). Sue asked when and whether we tip, which is a topic we've never before discussed on the show!
    How do you avoid tip shaming?  Do you tip at a fast food restaurant? Do you tip the owner when the owner provides the service to you? What is standard these days and is it based on industry - for example food service versus haircuts?  When you tip, but you've received a discount, do you tip on the pre-discount or post-discount amount?  Or do you tip a flat fee regardless of the cost? Should servers at more expensive restaurants make more in tips simply because their food is more expensive?  Should wait staff make more in tips simply because they served a table that also orders alcohol versus a table that does not?
    George and Shawn discuss all of these issues, and give real life examples of when they have (or have not) tipped.

Very Useful Info!

I started listening a few years ago when I was going through a bankruptcy, and I’ve been a regular listener ever since. Keep up the good work!

Lots of great tips to consider.

Love this show!

I’ve taken away so much info from the show! Really loved the episode with Simon Brady - I wouldn’t have thought divorce brought so much change to finances!
