Investor Real Estate Opportunity

I have a current opportunity in the Chicago real estate market. A single family house, market rent at $2600/month. This is a 5 bedroom 2.5 bathroom home with many updates. You can check out the property here: http://kimgalvan.bairdwarner.com/property/52504845/11556-South-Arte...
I am presenting 3 different opportunities on this investment:

First, as an outright purchase, an investor has the potential for a 10% return cash on cash at the current list price with a 4% bank loan. Second, I can offer 6% interest on short term private money note in first position. The note would be $320k. Third, I am willing to seller finance the acquisition at the list price, for an end user at 6% -30 year amortization and 1 year term. Some other information for this property; it is located in the Beverly area of Chicago and this area is know for being home to many policemen and firemen. The median sales price for similar homes in the area is currently at $417k. The Chicago area is also anticipating a 5% appreciation in home values over the next 12 months. If you would like to discuss any of these investment options in greater detail please let me know. Please feel free to share this opportunity.
Best Regards

Awesome Michael.  I do not have a format or list of questions.  If I have any questions I will contact you later.  I will send you any edits prior to publishing and will only move forward if you agree.  I will also send you an e-book version for free.  Thanks for your willingness to inspire!

Patrick, I will share a story on your page.

Comment by Patrick Michael Green on April 29, 2016 at 7:35pm

I am new to the group and I am hoping some of you will help me with a book I am writing.  It is about the journey from normal to Financial Freedom using a metaphorical approach.  The working title is Millionaire by 55.  It leverages learning from Dan Miller, Dave Ramsey and others that impacted me and allowed me to become a millionaire by 55 just by following biblical principles.

The help I need is stories from real people who have done it!  I would like to sprinkle them through the book similar to vignettes in the Total Money Makeover.  Would some of you be willing to share your Millionaire stories to give hope to others?

Tyler Peterson this group is about creating wealth for the long term and the main focus here is real estate.  As a real estate broker myself I can tell you that there are many tips, within the group discussions, that would help you understand the business concepts required to be successful as a real estate broker.  If you would like some one on one help you can reach me at mike@gallydevelopment.com and I would be glad to help you where I can.  I have been in the real estate business for 17 years and have been involved in more than 75 million dollars in transactions on both the commercial and residential sides of the business.  Let me know how I can serve you.

Hi all-

Is this group more about real estate as an investment?  Or, is it good for prospective realtors for tips, etc?  I want to get my license so I thought I would check.

How to market & get good residents?

Seven years ago we decided to try the "buy-renovate & resell" idea (flipping?). By the time we fixed places, the economy turned & we ended up renting instead.

I own 2 properties in town - a house and a duplex (2-2 bedroom units) for rent.  I have 2 vacancies now (out of 3) and it seems that it takes months to get a good tenant (let alone an applicant).  I get a lot of responses to my Craigslist ads and some from the world-known major hospital's online ads. One house is walking distance to the clinic.
I continue to get a lot of "unqualified" callers, meaning - they cannot afford it or they have pets or smoke. I am NOT on a mission to provide free housing.   My application process includes obtaining a credit report (which I do online), verifying income & bank balances & references. Perhaps I am afraid of getting a bad resident so the process is there to avoid that. I have heard too many stories of renters not paying and the property manager having to get a court eviction and then spend more $$ fixing up damages.
I follow the legal requirements of the Fair Credit reporting act and non-discrimination, etc.  I screen my callers before I show the place, but screening callers is a process I don't enjoy.  Eventually I'd like to sell both places, but at this time, it would be nice to have them fully rented so I can get in the black.
I still spend too much time showing my places and good prospects not applying. Perhaps I should encourage them to fill the application at the time they view the property?
Your ideas are welcome.
