More About This Show
Jody Weaver has not purchased any of her properties through Morris Invest, I simply thought her story was inspiring, and could bring a lot of value to you. She works full-time as a speech therapist in Pennsylvania. Like many people, she started thinking about the idea of financial freedom, and she knew that her stock market-based accounts weren’t bringing in a huge return.  

She was always interested in Sarasota, FL, and has even considered retiring there one day. After the 2008 financial crisis, that area was devastated in terms of real estate. Jody realized this was an incredible opportunity, and she spent many evenings thumbing through MLS lists and evaluating properties.

She then found a real estate agent in that area. They connected, and within a few days, Jody purchased her first condo in Florida. Although Jody viewed that initial property in person, the rest of her investments have been purchased without her physical presence. Today, she owns eight condos in two different complexes in Sarasota.

On today’s show, Jody is also sharing all of her tips and tricks to make real estate investing simple. We’ll talk about how she’s put together a reliable team, and the exact requirements she looks for in a property. She is also supplying invaluable advice to new investors. Jody’s excitement and enthusiasm are contagious! You won’t want to miss episode 83 of Investing in Real Estate!
