Description & Show Notes: In this Episode, I sit down with Auburn business man and former City Council member Brent Beard, and we talk about his experience as a landlord with multiple properties in Auburn. I've known Brent for over 10 years, and in early 2018 he came to me after selling a beach condo and asked me if I could help him find a few rental properties so he could put that money back to work right here at home.
Brent used his 1031 Exchange money to buy 3 houses here, and he eventually picked up a 4th and 5th, which were condos close to campus. Despite his busy work and family schedule, he and his wife Lauren decided to do their own management, and he'll tell us how that's going. Brent bought a duplex when he was younger, right out of school, and he didn't have as much luck with his neighbor on the other side, but that was a long time ago. This time, he asked me a lot of good questions and we were able to set his screening and leasing process up to be smooth and effective right from the start.
