In this episode, Brian and John talk about a recent flip deal that they did. This one stands out because it was sold quickly and several different types of buyers were interested in the property. Brian and John walk us through the deal, beginning with how they learned that is was up for sale. We hear about a man who approached the guys about buying the property on the day that they themselves bought it, and about a different buyer who tried to flip the property before he even owned it. Brian and John learned a lot in dealing with these buyers and they share those lessons with us.

We were ultra conservative. I think the lesson that we learned is that we should have blasted it out [to our email list] at a higher price.” (Tweet This!)
