    Perception is...

    Perception is...

    What the heck is a perceptual sieve and how would you use this in your real life? You have one - you use it all day every day - and you might not even know it. But today I’m going to share an insight with you that could profoundly affect the way you interact with others. On this episode of Flipping America.

    Partnerships

    Partnerships

    I’ve done more than 2000 deals and on most of them I had at least one partner. That’s a lot of partners and not all of them have been great. Today I’m going to help you sort out the whole partnership thing.
    You can’t control who sits at the table where you are doing a deal. But you CAN control who is sitting on your side of the table. And you should. A bad partner can hurt you - can cost you and sometimes can ruin you. Good partners have helped me make hundreds of thousands of dollars and bad partners have cost me hundreds of thousands. In fact, I’d probably be a million dollars ahead of where I am now if I had consistently applied the principles I’m going to share with you today. 
    In my defense, I didn’t know these principles. I learned them while attending the Church of the Painful Truth.

    Winter is Coming! We've Lost Comp Data!

    Winter is Coming! We've Lost Comp Data!

    We don’t get many breaking news headlines in real estate – much less in the real estate investing world. In fact the general public didn’t notice this at all, but this week we had a minor earthquake in the investing world. Third party data providers lost access to failed listing and sold property data. What does it mean, who is affected, and how should you deal with this - today on Flipping America.
    Panic is never a good first response. But it’s understandable when you unexpectedly lose a major tool that your business relies on. And this is why your business should never rely on just one tool or one platform. If your entire operation is based on a technology owned and controlled entirely by someone else, your livelihood is in their hands. Amazon third party sellers are unwise to stake their lives on the Amazon platform. I’ve seen sellers lose their ability to sell for a variety of reasons - none of which were their fault. I’ve seen sellers sell the same product for months or years and suddenly be told they can no longer sell that product. Or worse yet, Amazon decides to sell it. I’ve seen people build a nice following on Patreon and YouTube only after taking a position those platforms don’t like, become de-platformed or de-monetized.
    I do not and will not put all my eggs in one basket. I don’t talk about this much but I work hard to develop multiple income streams. At the moment they are all generally in the same field, but that isn’t the long term plan. I’m not going to talk about that today because all of this is leading to one simple statement: If you are completely dependent on Propstream for your real estate business, you are probably unwise. 
    Propstream announced this week that due to some changing regulations, they will no longer be allowed to provide information on failed listings or sold properties. Failed or expired listings is but one of over a hundred possible data points from which to build a marketing list. And it’s not one of my favorites. If a listing expires without selling - especially in the past three years - it’s almost always because the seller is asking too much. I’ve marketed to this list in the past, but don’t find many who are willing to lower their expectations simply because the listing expired. So this really isn’t a big deal.
    The lost of sold comps is a big deal - a huge deal. We run comps based on sold properties. This is without question the most reliable way to know what your potential investment is potentially worth. This data is essential for appraisers, lenders, and even tax assessors. Well guess what, you can’t really develop a solid “after repair value” without sold comps. 
    Or can you?

    Forward Thinking

    Forward Thinking

    Today we are going to talk about how to engage in forward thinking. No… not the kind that will get your face slapped… the kind that will propel your business where you want it to be. 
    We have answers to your questions, we have forward thinking trends, we have issues, we have some messing around, and most of all, we have what you need to move your business forward. Welcome to 2022 everyone! I’m glad you made it this far and we are thrilled that you’ve joined us for the ride. 
    We are starting something brand new today. Although we are still on our nationwide radio network doing the hour-long show, we are breaking each show into logical components to create multiple podcasts out of each radio show. Like most things we try, we don’t know how it’s going to work or whether it will work, but we suspect that people have a hard time committing to an hour long listening experience. Yes I know you could just stop and pick it right back up, but depending on the platform you are using, it may not be that simple. So let us know what you think about the new format if you are listening to the podcast. 
    Coming up today is a little forward thinking of our own - the Flipping America Colors of the Year.

Can you give me other ideas for creating some deal flow?” Kerry, Elizabethtown, KY “I just watched a YouTube video where a guy said the real estate market is set to crash in 2022. What do you see happening with foreclosures in 2022? Are we going to see a huge crash?” Lydia, St. Paul, MN, “Our city is experiencing a crime wave like I’ve never seen. I want to sell all of my rental properties (I have 9). But where could I put the money? Cameron, Chattanooga, TN, “My partner and I just had a falling out. We own 17 rental houses and currently have 3 flips together. We don’t want to be friends any longer but both of us are fair-minded and want to divide the assets as evenly as we can. Can you offer any guidance?” Sidney, Austin, TX “Where are the opportunities you see in a tight market in 2022?” Quote of the Day May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand. “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything.” Albert Einstein
