- Complete "Showings: Request Showing" checklist
- Look at properties as they come on the market
- Analyze property before requesting a showing
Analyze properties daily as they come in from automatic property searches. Save a copy of Brian's Deal Analysis Spreadsheet for each deal you analyze in your Dropbox folder for this deal/purchase.
If the deal looks interesting after analyzing it, request a showing.
Mark this task complete once you've analyzed deals for the day.
- IF PROPERTY LOOKS INTERESTING: Create property folder in Dropbox
- IF PROPERTY LOOKS INTERESTING: Save analysis spreadsheet to your property folder
If the property looks interesting and you're considering it save a copy of the deal analysis spreadsheet for this property to the property folder in Dropbox.
Use the file naming convention:
"YYYY-MM-DD - 1234 Main St - Analysis Spreadsheet.xlsx"
Where YYYY is the four digit year, MM is the two digit month, DD is the two digit day of the month and 1234 Main St is the street address of the property.
- IF PROPERTY LOOKS INTERESTING: Request rent comps from your Real Estate Broker
We are currently testing this as a service, but we've subscribed to a company where we can pull rental comparables for properties.
If you are analyzing a property and it looks interesting, you can email James and Tammy and ask them to pull rental comparables to see what fair market rent might be on the property.
Be sure to include the following in your email request:
- Address of the property
- Number of bedrooms (required to do rent comps)
- Whether it is a SFH or apartment (the two choices for rent comps)
- Whether you want just the report or the report and the CSV of the rent comps data if you plan to do some additional work on the data yourself in Excel
- IF PROPERTY LOOKS INTERESTING: Email Real Estate Broker to request showing
If after analyzing the property it looks interesting, request a showing by emailing your Real Estate Broker.
TIP: If you're working with James and Tammy, be sure to email both of them since James may not be in his email and Tammy could setup up the showing before James will even be back in his email. If you just email James, he may not even see it until much later and then he'll typically forward it to Tammy to setup the showing.
Be sure to include:
- Property address
- MLS number if possible
- Your availability to be able to see the property (provided the Seller can accommodate that day and time)
- Any additional questions you might have about it (if any)
