Named Insured vs. Additional Insured vs. Additional Interest vs. Loss Payee vs. Mortgagee – What’s the Difference?

I am always happy to expand my knowledge on a particular topic. Like many people I have been using the term "Additional Insured" in dealing with my interest and others with regard to insurance on a property. I learned something from this article, that it is not always appropriate to use that term. I hope you will find it as enlightening as I did.

As someone who writes prolifically about real estate and insurance, this article, as compared to others I have written, is relatively short, however, given some of the recent conversations I have had with investors and some of the recent classes I have taught, I feel it is necessary.

Weekly Wisdom - How to increase productivity!

They told him not to come back to college... They told him he would never be more than a machine shop worker... They told him he couldn't do it...

Well if you're wondering who I am talking about, I'm referring to my special guest of this week's Weekly Wisdom, good friend and #1 student Matt Larson. Just a few years ago Matt was a machine shop worker, stressed out of his mind wondering if "this was it". Was this truly the life he was going to live?

Possible Solutions for a homeowner who is being foreclosed upon

Hi All,

New here but I am hoping for some creative solutions to get this deal locked up and then buy or assign.

Home is 4mo gone and set to be auctioned in June.
I am figuring Mortgage around 155k
Home Value est market value 250k

My thoughts are to offer 175-200 and they avoid FC or LM on Cr. This gives 25-50k to go purchase or rent or whatever. The bonus here is they could rent the home from me/buyer so they could stay in the same home if desired or move.

Is this realistic as they could simply sell and make even more?

How would you approach this to save owner's credit and lock the home up before it gets to the courthouse?

Thanks in Advance and have a great day!

Weekly Wisdom #414 - Who you surround yourself with is who you become!

One of the craziest things I have discovered over the years is that who we spend our time with is ultimately who we become...

What do I mean by this exactly?

Well, when we dedicate our time to being around people who don't support our dreams, laugh at our ambitions and sneer our hard work, we truly can never get ahead.

But on the other hand, when we spend our time with the right people... the people who will support us through everything, we all start to rise together until we are all at a place we wanted to be!

Telephone Script for Investors/Sellers

I am working on a step by step process for assignment of contracts. After I reach out to investors and sellers to build up my sellers/buyers list and these people call me, what script do I use or what do I say? I'm one of those people that I have to have some knowledge so when I talk to prospective sellers and buyers I know what I am talking about. I also know that experience is the best teacher.

Another question, Do I as a RE wholesaler use only 3 documents (per Carol,thank you)for the whole process? (1.The Instant Equity Exchange, 2. Investor Disclosure Agreement and Seller's Acknowledgment, & 3. Investor Purchase Agreement) Thank you in advance for your responses. Blessings
