He was motivated to set up systems for his business after reading:
The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferris E-Myth Revisited by Michale Gerber Built To Sell by John Warrillow
Some of the keys to his success are:
* His people know that they can’t come to him with a problem, without also having a solution * Having systems for everything * Having a property manager * Hiring somebody that is better at doing stuff than he is, and letting them do it
The numbers Justin is looking for in a good deal:
Justin looks to buy at low points at the marketHas to have cash flow. (Atleast 1.5X cash flow)..Example. If he buys a house for $100,000 (including cost of house and repairs), he wants it to rent for $1,500 a month
Make sure you take repairs and vacancy into account when figuring out your budget
