Flipping America 507, REI Marketing

podcast 507 REI Marketing

Would you buy land halfway around the planet? Today I’m going to talk with someone who not only does it, it’s her primary source of income. 

Here’s a pretty cool idea. Alicia Jarrett lives in Melbourne Australia but she makes her living investing in land in Texas and Florida in the US. Let’s start this mental exercise by thinking about where you would like to live. Because we now know you can live anywhere if you have the right tools at your disposal. Alicia is going to talk about the tools she uses and how you can get access to them.

Questions from Listeners: 

  • Al, Las Vegas, “Am I better off buying materials for my rehab at [one of the big box stores] or should I go to the local lumberyard and building supply?
  • Karissa, Milwaukee, WI, “I bought two rental properties a couple of years ago following the 1% rule. In order to get that price I had to buy them in an area that makes me a little nervous, but I thought at the time, ‘people live here, why wouldn’t someone want to rent here ya know?’ But I’m not making money. I’m losing money. It’s taking all of my extra income just to maintain the houses and fix them back up after the tenants move out. What am I doing wrong?”
  • Evan, Indianapolis, IN, “I couldn’t make it to FlipStarter. Did I hear you say it’s in video format? I couldn’t find it on your website.”
  • Winifred, Villages of Ocala, FL “My husband only wants to use the cheapest paint, the cheapest carpet, the cheapest fixtures and cheapest everything in our investment houses. He says the tenants don’t care and wouldn’t appreciate better things. He also won’t do anything about controlling bugs or termites. He says that’s the tenant’s responsibility and it says so in the lease. I know we don’t want to put the finest products in our houses, but it seems like we ought to be better than the cheapest. I’d like to know how you handle this.”
