The Molotov Cocktail house

The Molotov Cocktail house

Long story short, I purchased a new property that had been on fire in the past. According to the neighbors and local landlords the deal was….

Remember the whole “Confederate flag controversy?” About 2-3 years ago when it was a hot button topic, I’m TOLD the person living in this unit put up a confederate flag with some ‘Choice words’ concerning people of a certain race. The result of this person putting up signs with quite incendiary remarks was a physical incendiary device (A Molotov cocktail) thrown through the window in the bedroom. Of course it could have been just for insurance money.

The results in my mind were pretty interesting – Not tons of damage to the unit once we got it all stripped out and have finally started work on it.

So, if you’ve wanted to see what one of my post-rehab , sub $30k houses here in Central Ohio looks like inside, here it is!

3br, 1.5 bath, partial basement, 1100 square feet built in the early 50s. Not terrible shape when I bought it, did some cleaning up, counter tops and whatnot and it’s done!

Brandon’s guide to real estate rentals

This will be the center “hub” of all the forthcoming posts I will be writing about rental real estate and investment.

The primary questions that come in about rentals tend to be the following, in terms of where they fall in buying and dealing with rentals.

  • Prospecting (Finding deals)
  • Qualification (Determining whether it should be bought)
  • Financing the deal
  • Rehabbing (Valuing repairs, locating good contractors)
  • Applicants
  • Marketing the rental
