Dwan Bent-Twyford is today’s featured guest on Think Realty Radio with Abhi Golhar. Dwan became a real estate entrepreneur in her 30’s when she made a decision to work for herself so she could stay at home rather than put her newly born daughter into daycare. She wound up rehabbing and decorating homes for sale, and from those humble beginnings bloomed a successful and lucrative REI career.
Dwan’s first deal netted $22,000. Abhi asks her to break down how that worked out and what made it so successful, and she describes all the details for those looking to triumph over their first deal. Other topics touched upon include the current state of the housing market, qualities real estate investors should exhibit, along with the strategy of using short sales.
What are Short Sales?
In the early years of her career, Dwan discovered and trademarked the strategy of using short sales. Different than rehabbing and flipping, short sales are essentially getting the bank to take less than what’s owed against the house. Often times this can be done with a simple phone call to the bank.
