HERE'S A LEARNING OPPORTUNITY FROM ONE OF MIKE'S CLIENTS.
My goal was to be sure I could, at least, cover my mortgage and insurance expenses when I secured my beach rental investment home. Due to putting the work in with Mike to first identify this goal it allowed him to match me with homes that perform well in my price point I felt comfortable with. This educational process mostly included learning about ingredients that renters seek. Mike wanted to make sure we hit my goal of being a strong renter and he proved this to me with actual rental history data sheets on the homes he presented. We actually found several homes in a few different communities. From there I made a choice that fit my personal needs related to views and great room size that were important to me and my family. Goal achieved, GREAT rental income, most of the expenses of owning are covered and we got a fine beach home our family enjoys several weeks a year!
