2157 Sara Ashley Way, Lithonia, GA 30056

I purchased this property back in 2015 as turnkey rental.It was a B class rental in B- location and rented for about $850 a month.

It was a very stable property for a few years but in 2019 we had to evict the tenant who left this.

When I tried to put in a claim in the insurance company a couple months to get back to me with a really lame “sorry but we can’t help you” letter. Apparently vandalism is not covered. I even got the aid of our commercial insurance adjuster that I helped us with a $400,000 fire damage claim on our 114-Unit Apartment complex in Atlanta. His response is that SFH policies just are not as robust as commercial policies.

Another reason I am leaving the PITA behind and going to more scaleable syndications.

The Sale

The buyer sort of played me a bit as a tad-desperate seller. I wanted to get out of the deal and move to just better deals with less of the aforementioned BS. This is called “re-trading” where the buy goes under-contract with all cash offer but then starts to make demands for repairs. I know its all part of “the game” but this is again why I don’t like messing around with SFH people since they like to waste their time. It reminds me when I was at my W2 job and had to sit through stupid meetings where other people were just trying to create more work.

Onward and Upward

Now I can take this money and go into one or two syndications!
