    S2 Ep 9#: Estate Planning 101: The Gorilla In The Room with Guest Sean Lohman

    S2 Ep 9#: Estate Planning 101: The Gorilla In The Room with Guest Sean Lohman

    Estate planning has to be one of the most complex and foreign topics to most real estate investors. Yet, it is one of the most important as you spend your life generating passive income, building wealth, and taking advantage of tax strategy through 1099 exchanges and cost segregation. You can even have a will- but what happens to your empire once you die? Plus, add in the complications that could present for your heirs. 
    Jonathan recently met a state planning attorney, Sean Lohman, to discuss the situation with his parents and their property. Sean explained very complex topics, such as wills and trusts, power of attorney, beneficiaries, medical or healthcare power of attorney, and so much more. He also found some gaps in Jonathan’s own estate planning. And what real estate podcast would be complete without covering this super important topic for you?
    Sean is an attorney at the Lohman Law Offices, a second-generation law firm in Louisville Kentucky. Sean specializes in estate planning and is also the host of the Uncontested podcast.

    S2 Ep 7: How to Ace Your Home Inspection with Guest Eric Gentry

    S2 Ep 7: How to Ace Your Home Inspection with Guest Eric Gentry

    For Buyers, the home inspection is an important part of the real estate transaction. This is the time when you find out about the overall health of the property you have under contract. Most transactions include this as a contingency of the sale, meaning the house must receive a good bill of health. This is also the point in the transaction when the Buyer can request that the Seller make specific repairs to the house. In this episode, we are honored to have Eric Gentry, owner of Kentucky-based Guardian Inspections, dive into how you can ace your home inspection.
     
    Eric Gentry is a certified MASTER home inspector and the owner of Guardian Inspections, a Louisville-based home inspection company. They cover Louisville and surrounding areas, Central Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Their sister companies: Guardian Environmental and Guardian Pest Control provide Radon testing and mitigation services as well as termite inspection and pest control services. 
     
    Guardian is also a sponsor of the Selling Derby City Podcast and we recommend Guardian’s services regularly to our clients. If you live in the Louisville, KY area you can find them online and schedule services from their website at: www.GuardianInspections.biz
