Key Takeaways:

“One of the biggest mistakes that we always see is people just not accounting for all of the expenses. And so you know, trying to find cashflow in any hot market is difficult. But when you’re not accounting for all of the expenses, you know, that cashflow property can turn sideways real quick.” – Steve Arneson

“One of like, the mantras that we had in our business from day one has, we will pass on nine good deals to find one great deal because we know when that correction does come, that great deal is still a good deal. Where as a good deal you might not be making any money in a downward turn.” – Steve Arneson

“Very first thing that my family told me when I started getting into real estate investing as a career was he can’t find cashflow in Victoria, and I don’t know if you’re the same way as me, but I think you are. When somebody tells me I can’t do something, I work day in and day out to make sure I prove them wrong. And I wrote down a couple of things as we were talking before this on how people can execute that and the number one thing that everybody can do is just track all the offers that they’re making and then follow up with those offers a month, three months, six months down the road. Some of the best deals that we have in our portfolio right now came from falling up six months down the road after our first offer.” – Steve Arneson
