To be successful as a real estate investor it helps to know and understand your 'why'.
Why be an investor in the first place?  Is it just to make money, or is there a deeper reason?
Today I sit down to talk with local investor and business owner Angela Hovermale about her 'why's', and how they've led her and her husband to invest in her own backyard and improve the neighborhood and community they live and invest in.

Patrick Spitzley Interview:

We've all seen those shows on HGTV where investors buy a house out of foreclosure or auction, fix it up, flip it, and make a killing.  It all looks so sexy glamorous and fun.  But is it really like that in real life?

Today I talk with someone who does rehabs & flips for real.  Patrick Spitzley is the owner of the Spitzley group.  He buys the worst of the worst and goes in with his crew to 'bulletproof' the home by completely rehabbing it top to bottom.  We're going to talk about his philosophy on flipping, rehabbing, building spec homes, private money, and his recent trip to Nigeria and what he learned there that will help him in his investing going forward.

Historic Districts seem to be a hot button issue lately across the country.  There are several states where legislation is being proposed that would effectively weaken or eliminate historic districts.  Michigan is one of those states. 

Investors will often find that owning rental property in a historic district can be a more expensive proposition, and getting approval for changes to the exterior of their property can be a time-consuming process as well.

But do the benefits outweigh the costs of owning property in a a historic district?

Today I talk with Suzanne Schulz, the Planning Director for the city of Grand Rapids, to discuss this question.  We'll also learn more about historic districts, their purpose, and the proposed legislation in Michigan that could end them all together.
