Transactional real estate engineers must never be conservative with their ARV. What is ARV? ARV stands for “after repaired value.” It means the potential value of a property and not the value as-is. It is determined by referencing nearby comps in a similar condition that have recently sold. If your ARV is too conservative, you will lack a margin to make a profit.
In this episode, learn about ARVs, what we look at when doing comps, and how to find comps in the boonies. Discover how to approach a seller when they ask for 20% down for a $30k house that needs work or sellers asking way over market value. Gain skills to follow up with incoming leads. Learn when you should get the authorization of release information in a subject-to.
Listen to a client’s bread-and-butter deal, and the attitude investors should have when talking to sellers about the first three mortgage payments.
