Of their rent sin the average rental right now is upwards of about 15100 a month that's the average PM holy insane. And that is a lot. OK so 99 dollars a month that's a big serving a huge saints had a lot of money we're putting back in the owners' pockets that's right and you said that done before the showed you save jurors clients about how much.

Property management but you know in Europe putting anybody in these properties right I mean there are fully vest vetted right you do some thorough background check. I totally wish they were awfully can have been no we we get a lot of properties that are they can.

Bernard and good working order right. Yet putting good working order advise them on what to rent it for my we have found that a number of self managed owners. Actually undervalued their properties by about ten to 20%. Really gas so a recent owner that I ain't took on three of his properties I was able to increases brand by 20% a year over year. Which put an extra thousand dollars a month in his pocket. And you do this offer and I mean nine dollars a month yep hallmark in this holy you know that's amazing. So you tell me or advise them on what to rental property for you help them and then you find that Tenet for them correct OK sorry you do that. Through. I guess to the Internet from assuming. Yeah I mean everyone you know everyone's Internet craze now so I am and myself included I'm sure you check faced a break before I started talking but. Yes so in and that so we're big on Facebook and sticker and snap Chad pretty much if you didn't see it I'm on and so that's a little obnoxious early and it.

You know go to FaceBook and check them out you can do some more than that right. Yeah and I'm night I wish I was just FaceBook stocking. No so it's it's Stephanie a process we. Treated a lot like a lender would treat qualifying empire. And so it's really a business transaction and we try to keep the same standards across the board for everybody. So we're going to do national. Background checks Sony's or nationwide we are searching everywhere. We are going to do. Very intensive credit checks. So we're look teen very anti TO we can find civil liens we can find judgments. Where do you lean lease history checks.

In just under 15100 square feet it's a really decent sized home okay and that's a nice neighborhood so yeah position Syracuse here kind of right in between new Marianne a latch Lang and kink into Gainesville and ten minutes OK hard great. So we didn't really cover at the beginning commercial but what area do you have reduced due the Janesville area are you all over north Central Florida spring aren't prima stick to agree or Gainesville area my kind is. I really want to make sure I can service my clients can be as proactive as possible so stay keen to gain sole electric canny as my best and right now okay and which are contact info on the website and everything else again. So my cell phone is 352. 5141441. Text her car meet. Web site is golden. Rule home real estate dot com and they can always email me to April. Acts golden. Ruled real estate dot com Larry Craig then you had mentioned why we were take a break that come. You do inspections every six months which a little bit different as well right yes so a lot of our owners are not here in town and majority are more than three hours some of homer lever and over in Europe. Hope so they're not here locally don't have access to the park green I find that's a really big pain point with most owners is the wanna know what's going on with their home and they feel like if they handed off to a property manager they lose that control. So to get some of that control back and make sure they are staying informed we do inspections every six months we take about a 150 photos. We do all right apps and then they have access to that in their portal at all times and can go view and see what's happening. Tell that's me okay Willis good so they don't have to win a whole year they wait six months and then they give some peace of mind that their house is still and still there. Yep still that's been destroyed. Yep and in some Omar is seen their homes for multiple years so I have a number of clients we brought on that have admitted and not seen their home for 234. Years. And by the time they do see it again it's. A little scary threats who. It's an have you I don't mean to introduce so they need to call you and they need to. Go visit your website and check out your proposition of only 99 dollars a month for this yeah guarantors are cheaper than cable. There you go that's probably very very true creatures so. So one of the things we wanted to discuss is that if you own a house now in your first time fired you've lived their for short period of time may be a few years and you want to keep that house. That's a good opportunity for you to come in its home. As you view this is what can rent for rim can keep 1005 maybe a bigger home. Yes that's an amazing opportunity that's something I personally did as well so we have a lot of people who bought their first three bedroom two bath starter home four bedroom two bath. Got any great interest street a couple of years ago and her wanting to upgrade the wanna keep their home as an investment and they're not sure if they key and 90% of the time they absolutely can and we can rented and also not only cover their current mortgage that. Probably even make enough that they can start pain sundown on their new mortgage when they go buy a new home. That's crazy well so they shouldn't be afraid then don't be afraid don't be scared you're OK yeah so the mean that's what they need to call you think put him arisen your website to get up because. He does not a lot of money plus a cable pleasant cable blessing cable but come they can possibly turn that house into cash itself in her ex man come off the list. And then you know and if you know fifteen years or so. Have a mortgage paid off and god forbid you within a mile loan but. But to have that break coming in Minnesota you can help them right exactly yep let's attendant pay your mortgage for you break them too literally turn now but that's the reality that is how it is and that's right. Okay come. So one of the other things is you are pretty extensive when it comes to move out right when these moves clients move out of these homes and you go through and make sure that everything is the way it should be. Yes so with my construction background I I would probably venture to guess man and that's a little more extensive than most so I am not only looking to see. Possibly what attendance did to the property but I'm constantly looking for potential maintenance issues. So work constantly looking to make sure we don't see any leaks from the roof preacher has seemed would rise. But then in addition obviously making Asian attendant left it in good condition and left it how it should be left I'm really looking for those deferred mean and say gee is there really cost you in the long run. OK very good in. And and then you're release is set something that and you used to defile yourself I mean everything you have merit is is to protect the owner of the property. Yet while project Fiona are also protected tennis so my release. You know I aide did not technically develop myself I heard a very expensive attorney UK. And we eroded so that it one protects the owner says there's four pages. That kind of explains to the Tenet what they're responsible for me kind of cut out 90% of our arguments and issues right so literally four pages of what they can and cannot do. But it also ally rains for the Tenet with the owner is responsible for and how things like security depositor processed because I find that's probably one of the most misunderstood portions a security deposit to OK and has a work. Let me says security positive guy and kind of brief summation as you need to put it into a noninterest bearing account as an owner you cannot touchy cannot spend it needs to sit there and stay while attendance in your home is not your money. And then when it tenant moves Alex. You need to do to move on inspections immediately. If there's nothing to be withheld from it has to be returned to ten win fifteen days. Mean not fifteen this instinct I had okay fifteen days and then if not if you do need to make a claim the F thirty days. Okay and those are two very time sensitive things that a lot of people tend to overlook. And then there's a whole thing from mayor if you know. Sites and whenever ensue but that's in the fifteen and thirty AZT big points. Okay all right and I'm sure you're ordered on this right I mean at some point. Yep we we get audited we have time to CPAs helpless oversee everything and we are also accountable to state for an easy money so we keep a very close eye on everything. Current sounds like you're on top of everything so that's why people need to call you what church you your number again some people can call or text you and get text mean it's 352. 514. 1441. Part intend as we talked about before you're also help people. Determine what the property may bring for based on your extensive knowledge right comes in our market. Yes for sure yeah please don't try and value yourself we find everybody tries to get a zillow and uses Aston then which can be helpful but can also hurry sometimes so. We will do a full analysis we will come in toward the home and we will give you kind of their real skinny on what we think or rent for and tipping clean leave. We'll find that we already Tim more than you thought you had rented for. Now that's amazing yet often the extra money that stereo. All right so only do recap interest rates a little bit down for the listeners this week John in the thirty year loan in the Wall Street Journal four point five. Percent so pretty easy that was announced Thursday as Wall Street Journal Thursday July 19. 2008 team. I'm basically flat from the week before and then the national average for this fifteen year low Wall Street Journal. On Thursday July 19. Three point 96% so on down slightly from the previous week. Ten year treasury note two point 882%. So a little bit this week. And I was talking to Allard Baird who's our our resident expert he's from Houston Texas. He's been on the show before and you know what if you listened to Larry in the past he's very folksy. So he says some right now there's a lot of stuff going on obviously. We're waiting for the second. Quarter of look to come in on what to GDP numbers gonna be in that's going to be in the close to four point 7% so that's our first estimate. Hamanaka mound next Thursday and as you said the waters may be very combo right below the water it's there's a lot going on so you just gotta be carefully so there's a lot of a lot of other things happening so reduced to a lot of people in wall remaining one particular way and if it doesn't go their way they're gonna fly towards the exits and we're gonna see rates go up so. We set to be very you are cautious as it is. Designed to me was my Q bureau their official on the guys. Just be very careful and don't bring your pickup truck because of fear they are cracked and you might wanna get off. So that's what kind of talk so it use a pretty interest in guy who's been following interest rates for you know better part of 25 years so Petroleos. So he Q we know so anyways if you're you feel looking for a loan in the north Central Florida area you may call the for myself on 352. 2150501. Or can you know me and Mike Scott Jones and marriage thank dot com. On April as we're getting towards the end of the show here is or anything we missed you think that people. Haven't do I haven't asked you about you have a number of properties is not what you managing 5101520. You said it was over a year ran 85 renowned for Jim part of view when you have a whole stuff for people to help you salutes. Great civilians who got my support staff to make sure that I and don't check up and Massa but yet they keep me around and architect. And and then you're gonna be an open house right after the show could you do umpire and so rules that too on top of all that yet have a lot of craziness at PMI still buy and sell full time and now I'm still in doing that as well. Very well one of the questions I didn't askew who who answers that call in the middle of the night when when the house is flooding there called the owner of the call you. They call me button Yahoo! so yeah right now I'm taking on those midnight calls I have been handed that off yet to a staff because I don't want them to wake up at 2 AM but. Yet you're not using a property manager that means you're using you're gonna get those 2 AM phone calls and they're Superfund. But somehow I'm not sure that that's true but okay. In them can you give us just an example one Christi caller maybe you've had if you can think of any. To pretend you know the worst DN a horse runs and we typically hear from men a number of owners and we picked up and because they've gotten knees to land calls her. Come flooding slowly get the flight team and he and no one wants to wake up to that X specially PRD had two kids at home anymore to an 85 break. So flooding tends to be the worst military and it's just yet. Them not a fun parent and all right votes if they need a property manager in the computer. Keep peaceful area of the one call people Strickland was on golden rule. Real estate property mantra what's your phone number one more time. Yet so my Seles 352. 514.
