What Brad Looks for in a Property

Brad admits that he’s not in love with real estate. Instead, his purchases revolve around profits. The biggest thing he looks for in a property is an equity position. As long as the home is not in a high-crime area or contaminated with meth, he will pursue it.

What to Look for in a Buyer

When selling a note, you want to find a buyer who cannot qualify for traditional financing. The buyer should have a reasonable down payment, and consistent income that can cover the payment.
