Flipping America 306, How to Research a Neighborhood, Part Two

We are continuing today with our technology series, focusing on consumer-facing websites that help us research neighborhoods and communities. Last time we considered eleven of them and today we are looking at ten more. Some of them are very interesting and some are a waste of time. I’m doing this research so you don’t have to. So stay tuned for that. Coming up, WeWork is back in the news and it’s more bad news for them. And we are going to give you a quick update on commercial real estate in a few minutes.

  • Alphonse, Tampa, FL “I’ve been seeing on social media that you are opening up your mentoring program. I think your listeners would appreciate hearing more about it. Also I want to know if I can join even though I’m in Tampa?”
  • Eric, Boulder, CO, “I’m brand new at this. I love talking to sellers and meeting people in general. I want to wholesale the properties – I don’t want to fix them myself. But I don’t know what I should be offering.”
