 How to Own Worry-Free Income Property | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 20:57

"Turn-key rental property" has become the buzz word in the real estate investment world.  Many companies that offer wholesale income properties claim they offer it, but few deliver on their promises. We are happy to say that we've found a company that does exactly what they say, and offer superior customer service - which translates into steady, dependable cash flow for their investors. The investors we know, who have purchased truly turn-key properties from this Cincinnati team, continue to rave about their experiences...and their cash flow. On this episode, Kathy interviews Missy, the CEO of this company.  Not only does she provide wholesale properties for investors...she also owns over 100 properties in her own portfolio.  Her company manages over 400 properties, teaches investors how to be successful landlords, and has been helping investors get 10-25% cash on cash returns. Missy's company also offers a "Reliable Rental Program," where investors get a triple net lease agreement on fully renovated single family homes - which means they get the same tenant for 5 years who pays all expenses! If you're concerned about the volatile stock market, or want a hedge against possible hyper-inflation, listen in and find out how you can enjoy hassle-free income property. .
