I took a couple of hours yesterday and looked at some possible rental properties over in the Waldo area of Kansas City, MO. I came away with three real good candidates and about 10 real losers. The good candidates would all fit at least the 1% rule. One is nearly turn-key while the other two are within $4,500 of being rent ready. All fall below the $80,000 price range.
If you would like me to send you these three homes (they are not my listings) just email me at listwithchris at kw.com and you know I’ll send them to you.

We are 23 1/2 days away from Midnight Madness. That’s when the Kansas Jayhawks can start basketball practice for real. We’re going to be real young and real inexperienced this upcoming year. So it will be fun to watch these new kids develop. And heck, we got our reward last April.
I’m taking my very, very soon to be 16 year old to Chicago this weekend for his birthday present. A new right-of-passage for the Lengquist household will be to take the new 16 year old’s away for a couple days as a last shot at having some influence over them as they begin to enter adulthood and explore their own ideas and ideals.
If you know of any “must-sees” in Chicago, be sure to drop me an email today or tomorrow.

There is a lot of uncertainty out there in the markets. Stocks go up huge one day and down huge the next. As least with real estate it’s all steady, right? 🙂 And if you bought on proper fundamentals you are not losing money on a month to month basis. Today you can buy on even better fundamentals and make that property work for you. I’d love to discuss this in detail.
