Flipping America 236, The iBuyer Show

podcast 236 The iBuyer Show

Expected Air Date: 3/28/19


The so-called iiBuyer will make you an offer and promise convenience, but seller beware! The fees will get you. 

Grandma’s description of daylight savings time.

iBuyers make it look like they are giving a fair offer for your house. I’ll make the same offer.

6-16% fees

Must accept contract offer which is contingent upon inspection.

Inspection will reveal needed repairs which you can make or further reduce your price. 

Tell the tuxedo shirt story again. $22 vs $15 shirt.

  • Hey would you buy me lunch just so you could pick my brain? 32 cents per day. For less than the price of that lunch, just $9.67 per month, you can have a whole month’s worth of my brain pickings by joining the Premium membership. Just go to flippingamericanetwork.com and click on the FAN. On this show I keep a pretty narrow focus on real estate and small business development. But if you subscribe to my FAN premium blog you’ll find out what I think about a wide variety of topics. I will do my best to give you a $10 or $100 idea with every post and I WILL be talking about real estate, but I’m going to weigh in on some other topics as well. Which topics? Whatever interests me. And I have a wide range of interests.

Your Questions:

  • Carson, Norcross, GA “I’m trying to buy a house that is in foreclosure here in Gwinnett Co. Georgia. The seller is ready to walk away from the house and told me the loan balance is $85k. She accepted my offer of $87k. Now I hear from the lender, a private individual that the actual balance is 97k. The house is worth 220k so I offered the lender 100k in cash. He said ok, but he already paid the attorney to handle the foreclosure and I would need to speak with him. What do you recommend? The property is scheduled for the auction in 1 week. 
  • Dena, Lancaster, PA “I am wondering how you rehab those properties you are buying around the country. How do you do a remote rehab?”
  • Madison, Las Vegas, NV “Someone told me that they heard you make exceptions to the MAO rule. What are the exceptions?”
