Real Estate Newsletter – June 2019

Thoughts from Diana

I’m very excited to introduce our most recent addition to OTA Real Estate instructor pool- Chris Heffer. Chris has a deep background in fixing to rent, property management, and holding real estate in retirement accounts. Check out Chris’s article on Marketing your investment this month. He will also be teaching Foundations June 24-25.

While Chris’s focus is on marketing your property, my article focuses on the steps necessary to get the property ready for market.

Remember we are here to provide guidance and support, contact us.


By Chris Heffer

No matter the real estate investing strategy, at some point in time all investors are going to need marketing. Whether advertising a rental to potential tenants, attracting cash buyers with a wholesale deal or reaching targeted buyers on a fix and flip, effective marketing could impact the bottom line. When marketing real estate, there are many marketing landmines that investors could avoid with a little knowledge.



By Diana Hill

Personally, I experience two moments in the fix and flip process where I go – “Oh NO, what’s next!” One is at the close of purchase of the property and the other is when the property is ready for resale. To help me through these times I’ve created checklists, time lines and a project plan which help me move forward faster. These are important steps in the real estate marketing process that we preach and teach in all our real estate classes.
