There’s no such thing as a stupid question.
Well okay, there actually are some pretty stupid questions, but that’s why we take questions by email and not call in. That way we can filter out the bad ones and just bring you the really good ones! We really aren’t qualified to advise you on what color to do dye your hair or what style of nose ring to purchase. But if you have a real estate related question, we’re your Guys!
In the studio to provide powerful pontifications in response to several of the great questions we receive each week:
- Your host and hero, Robert Helms
- His trusty sidekick, Russell Gray
- Wise sage of all things real estate, The Godfather of Real Estate, Bob Helms
For this episode of Ask the Guys we reached into the email grab bag and pulled out some gems:
From a listener in Australia (who understandably thinks we’re amazing), who just bought two properties (good job!), and wants to know should he buy more – in his wife’s name with “negative gearing”. Hmmmm…. you need to be careful about anything negative when your spouse is involved – and what type of gear you use with your wife…well, that’s really none of our business.
For our next question, Simon says he put in a deposit on a pre-construction property, but undisclosed costs have made him nervous. Now Simon says he wants out of the deal and his deposit back. But what does the contract say?
From Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, Kevin and his siblings have inherited dad’s duplex and are debating what to do. One sibling says keep it, the other two want out. What’s a brother to do?
Rasean has aspirations to become a real estate syndicator (what a good idea!) and is trying to track down the bible of syndication, written by our friend Sam Freshman. Hint: The Real Estate Guys™ have a Recommended Reading bookstore on our website under our RESOURCES tab.
And Martin, who lives in Smallville, wants to know if he should invest in his own backyard or seek super returns in Metropolis. So we ducked into the nearest phone booth (hard to find these days!) and fired up our x-ray vision to look for the answer.
If YOU have a question for The Real Estate Guys™, just click on Ask the Guys to send us your query. Then, Walter in the mail room will throw it in the mail bin, where we’ll dive in later to pluck questions for some future show. Maybe we’ll pull yours out, so keep those cards and letters coming!
