“The element of real estate investment that we prioritized most was cash flow because the cash flow would then be able to fuel the growth for future real estate investment opportunities.” – Clinton Ramsden

“That first property we did earn about $32,000 a year in its long term status. And it’s

first year operating as a short term rental it earned $109,000.” – Cody Monroe

“We had more noise-related, police incidents on a property where a police officer would have to come to the property. That happened more frequently on our long term rentals than our short term rentals.” – Clinton Ramsden

“If you’re willing to go the team route / the group route, raise money from other people who know and like and trust you, that dozen becomes hundreds or maybe even thousands. So it just really goes to show the power of working together. Working as a team.” – Cody Monroe
