    Howdy, had our most recent blog post picked up by API Mag – both links available HERE

    What do people think? How much of your last purchase was pure logic, and how much was feelings?

    I had a recent client comment on how “zen” I was during an auction bidding process… and I thought it was funny because he was a quant trader from an investment fund and one of the most calm, rational people I had met. Then I had a home owner get quite emotional over a purchase and I was reminded how property pushes our buttons.

    I am always logic and never heart. I own 6 single families in Australia in 3 different states (where I don’t live). I create spreadsheets of data and let the numbers talk to me. This narrows down area then I start talking to property managers to learn what rents well and for how much. I then get the property managers to walk the properties for me and report back on what they could comfortably rent it for. I then use the numbers to negotiate. I have never seen my properties with my own eyes and my friends think I am crazy. I tell them my eyes know nothing but the data knows a lot.
