Show Notes

On today’s Friday Focus episode, we are joined by a member of the Instant Investor Mastermind community, Drake Johnson, also known as The Drake Johnson on Instagram. He has achieved significant success in real estate over the past year and is known for his deal-making skills, and he wants to share his knowledge with all of you!

In this episode, Drake Johnson shares a deal case study of a single-family residence he acquired through direct mail (our favorite!). The property was an absentee inherited home that had been vacant for seven years. Drake developed a rapport with the seller and set clear expectations. After negotiating a price reduction due to unexpected repairs, Drake and his JV partners decided to do a quick flip. They made minor renovations, listed the property, and received multiple offers within a week. The property sold for $269,000, resulting in a gross profit of $100,000! This is the type of ROI that will have you skipping to the bank.

Drake emphasizes the importance of taking calculated risks and building relationships with partners to be able to achieve this sort of success. So if a $100K profit sounds appealing to you, be sure to tune in.
