EP 160: Listener Questions

In this episode, I’m going to break format just a little. On Mondays, I normally release an interview. However, I want to dedicate today to answering some listener questions. At its core, this podcast is about helping new real estate investors. What better way to do that than by answering questions from beginners, so that everyone can benefit from the answer?

  • Robert, Southfield Michigan-
    If I flip a house, does my wife legally have to sign all of the docs too since we are married?  
  • Simon, Orange county California-
    Which entity should I pick to flip houses?
  • Elaine, Texas
    What paperwork is needed when hiring a contractor?
  1. Release of lien
  2. Licence and insurance info
  3. Contractor Agreement
  4. Written quote with timeline (itemized)
  • Thomas, Cleveland Ohio?
    Should I get my realtor’s licence before I start investing in real estate?

Hope this was a benefit to you. I know that I normally would have had a guest on today, but I really want to make sure that I’m answering the questions that you have as listeners to the show and as new real estate investors. Don’t worry, I have a great guest lined up for next Monday! We will get back to the interviews next week and I am really excited!

    Q&A podcast Rocks!
    Keep up the great content.
    One constructive comment- when answering a question reference past episodes. Example: Should one form an LLC? Give your answer but in the response mention Episode 51 where you interviewed Brian Borawski. That way folks can reach out a either relisten to the past episode or download and listen for the first time.

    Hey Max, you are right. That is something that I strive to get better at. I really need to hire a VA to help with those kind of details!
