Your Questions:

  • Shameka, Atlanta, GA “I’m a new wholesaler and I would appreciate if you would give me some guidance as to what experienced investors are looking for.”
  • Brandon, Atlanta, GA “How do you figure out what it’s going to cost to repair the property?”
  • Roberta, Tampa, FL “What is debt service coverage ratio and why is it important? I just got financing rejected by the lender because of this and it’s a property my mentor said would generate good cash flow. I asked the lender and their explanation was technical and I didn’t understand. I asked my mentor and he said it’s not important and I should just go to another lender. I googled it and that really didn’t help either. I’m buying a house for $120,000 and putting $20,000 down. The payment will be $525.20 per month and the rent is $750. It seems like I’m making $200 per month. How can that be wrong?”
