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.
By Kelly Troy
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.

Rina's DAILY JOURNAL: Chapter One - The Beginning

I thought if we posted some daily activity in the life of an RE Investor, it might encourage others to get out there and DO!
It doesn't matter how little or much you do, just post whatever. Did you drive a neighborhood, look at a house, follow a lead, send postcards or fliers, make phonecalls? This is all the "work" that leads up to the ultimate success, signing day. Use Anita's 3-house deal as an example. She did her homework. That certainly wasn't her first phonecall of the week!

Only YOU can change YOUR situation in Life

One of the 1st things I was taught in REI was "Only YOU can change YOUR situation in life". I was told to write this down and post it places You had to SEE it EVERYDAY.(bathroom mirror,car dashboard,TV,etc)

At the end of each day, ask yourself "what did I do today to get closer to my goal?"

It's true. You WILL need to learn REI and take ACTION as Dean teaches,but, it IS all up to YOU.

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.

Set your Goals and Make a Plan to achieve them and just keep following the plan- step by WILL get there.

Set 30/60/90day goals and then 6/12/18 month Goals.

Where do you want to be in in 1yr,3yrs or 5yrs?

NO one learns at the same pace,so you have to keep pushing forward and keep going.

Follow step by step-NO shortcuts!

KEB'S later years

Well, I guess I should start at the begining. After spending six years in the military and marrying a great Korean lady (25 years and counting). I went to work for the DOJ even though I had a burning drive to do my own thing (several small start ups). After several years (13) I had the honor (haa) of meeting a well how do we say, bad inmate that gave me a wake up call. Yea I lost the fight,lost some vision in one eye and had brain surgery (shunt placed in head) and retired medically. Present times: Bought a metal recycling company right before the 2004 olympics and made really good money for several years. Took the money and bought several homes free and clear in Ohio and California (can you say cash flow and ROI).

My 1st deal!!!

I made my 1st DEAL!!!
Talk about addiction... I found mine!!
I know this stuff works but when you actually do it and it works omgosh!!
Searching through some ads I found a townhouse that a
gentleman had for sale that he started to rehab and
wanted to sell for $19,000.00. I called honestly hoping he
was a landlord thinking I could pick up someone to
add to my buyers list. During our phone conversation he told me that
he just lost interest and had enough rental income coming in
that he wanted to sell. So truly in my head bells and whistles went
off I heard one of the speakers from the edge event (sorry I don't
remember who) about packaged deals. I thanked him for his time and
told him I would get back with him. I did a little research and found

AND/OR ASSIGNS - How to Use It and Get It Accepted!

All of us on here know the importance of using and/or assigns on our purchase contracts, if we are planning on assigning them, but do you know how to use it and get it accepted without question or rejection?

As I write this, I a m speaking strictly from personal experience, because EVERY purchase and every offer, I have made, has read "and/or assigns". By now my agent knows to not even prepare the offers without it because I won't sign them.
