I attended a networking meeting and the speaker was David Bootrus

Talked about his strategy for making money in smaller markets


Step 1 – Identify the small/rural city that you want to target. You’ll need to research rent rates for the area as well.

Step 2 – Create a marketing plan for the area

  • Digital
  • Yellow letters
  • Bandit signs

Step 3 – Work the leads and purchase distressed homes in the area for 5,000 – 20,000

Step 4 – Do a basic make ready

Step 5 - Market the property in MLS, craigslist, Trulia, Zillow…

Step 6 – Use bandit signs for “owner financing”

Step 7 – You’re going to make the payment on the mortgage $400 less than rent rates


Why would you do this? It ensures a very low foreclosure rate.
