How to buy a house for 275k and rent it out for $5,000+ a month?  (Short Term Rentals)

This is a Deal Dissection video on a new deal we just closed and it is a Buy and Hold but it is a bit different than most because it will be more than a “2% House” and the price is is 275k.  It is unusual for houses to rent for 2% at such a high price, and that’s the cool part about the deal because this high cash flow is possible by doing short term rentals.  In this class I’ll touch on the the Short Term Rent Models and how we use them for houses like this.

Deal Dissection Series: Basil Episode One
Deal Dissection: Where it’s all dissected – the numbers, costs, profits, etc. from A-Z!

Indy Anna explains…
Basil in pics and a walkthrough tour 
The numbers in the deal from start to finish
The unique characteristics that make this a WIN

This is a different kind of deal because there is NOT much work to do.

Now, if you’re a Hero on our Indy Team, you are used to us bringing you deals that require some deferred maintenance or rehab work, from cosmetic to extensive, but to be clear- this isn’t always the case.  Some of our Heroes are doing both Flips and Buy and Holds at the same time, and Azam has done  many of these classes right now, be sure to check those out.

This is just one of these situations in real time, and I’m going to walk you through the numbers on it today.  Quick reminder about the Deal Dissection Series: 

I help out of state real estate investors create a passive income of 10-30k/month…
… without leaving your house.

The Deal Dissection Series is all about taking an actual, real life Indianapolis real estate deal that we are helping and doing for one of our Heroes, an out of state real estate investor.  It helps you see EVERYthing from A-Z, step by step from start to finish – you get a full behind the scenes look at everything the good, bad and ugly warts and all and you can see how REAL deals actually happen in the real world.

We name them F and B – for Flips or Buy and Holds:

– We name each deal and then provide updates on every week’s progress so if you are just joining us you can go back or forward and see how things started and turned out, these are NOT summaries of deals we did, these are all real time deals that we are doing right now so you’ll get to see everything happen in real time from closing to closing
– We will always go over the exact numbers, costs, delays, etc. and the profits and I’ll go over detailed cash flow statements when applicable
– We have other residential, commercial, etc. deals that are Bs and Fs as well, each deal illustrates something specific that you can learn from

Each deal we go over has a specific teaching purpose here’s a cheat sheet on some of our deals, I won’t go over each one for a full list you can go to

Brooklyn – $50k duplex BRRRR deal
Brenda – $30k SFR flip/BRRRR (not sure yet lol)
Brandon – $70k duplex BRRRR deal (could be 70k flip)
Bryce – $120k Buy/Hold new construction vacant land (New Home Builder Model)
Brianna – $250k Five pack of houses BRRRR deal –
Brock – 100k four-plex BRRRR
Brittany – 50k SFR BRRRR

Fred – $30k SFR Flip
Frank – $25k SFR Flip
Flynn – $200k SFR Flip with vacant land new home builds
Francis – $150k commercial apartment complex flip
Fredo – $40k flip converting a duplex into a SFR
Flavor – $20k SFR Flip to over negative cash flow
Florida – $15k Flip WITH $25k financed

Okay so, as a reminder here are the details on the Basil:

Purchase Price: $279K
Rehab Price: $0
HML Amount:$0
Money Down: $75K
HML Payment: $0
Debt Service: $1800.00
ARV: $280K
Market Rent: $5K+ as AirBnb or assured $3200/mo STR- winter months
Projected Profit/Equity: $1500/mo

Right now we are RENT READY:
– We’ve gone from acquisition to rent in 48hours
– The STRentes move in tomorrow and sign the lease
– Right now you are about to see the pictures and how a deal like this works in Indy

Here’s what we didn’t anticipate happening – the appraisal going wrong at first.

Now to be clear this is NOT a rural property, it’s suburban. Here’s why;
– It’s in a neighborhood
– It’s on city water/sewer
– It’s area is built up over 25%
– There are no ancillary buildings
– The population density per mi is over 40K

What came back on the appraisal report however was ‘rural’- to be clear NO other box checked on the appraisal was any indication of rural, but this was going to kill the deal.

No one on the secondary loan market really wants to get into a rural mortgage apart from a USDA loan, and this was not a USDA loan product. ’   

When we were told how the appraiser marked this- this is when I went into OVERDRIVE.

This appraiser was going to kill this deal and that is NOT how we create wins for our Heroes.

Look, she had already killed it by marking it as rural, so there wasn’t anything I could do to make it worse, right? I called her- and that was an entirely different story as to how I was legally allowed to do so – explain- 

Then, I got ghosted by her. Again, not going to work for me, so I began calling her office in tandem while I was getting written approval from the lender that literally any certified appraiser would work, two hats, one head situation.

Now, we were totally messed over on this deal so it was go time.

We had a back up plan ready to rock with another appraiser and within a two hour window of her either replying to me or not, we were ready to hop in our cars and roll out to this one for a second appraisal- it was ‘go time’. 

In the end however, after calling about every 15 min on the hour, emailing endlessly, and talking to the owner of the small appraisal company she finally stopped ghosting me.

She wasn’t happy with me…

… and told me that a lot lol.  Eventually she said if I could get her another order from the lender for an appraisal revision she would mark it as suburban if she rechecked her facts/figures and she really felt she should do it- as long as I promised to stop calling and emailing about it and it was legit to do so.

So, end of the story, she did change it from rural to suburban and the closing was set. 

I can’t tell you how many people told me it was pretty unheard of to sway an appraiser to change their mind on something. A big part of this- well the only logical reason was ego. Young, fresh licensee and when you’re dealing with the average age of appraisers in America of 50 and retiring, this is it- not a huge pool to pick from.  

This is why it’s CRUCIAL to have a solid team like ours here in Indy.

We are so incredibly grateful for each member- including our appraisers we can recommend to lenders when the situation calls for it.

Oh, lol, if you’re wondering how we are getting this rent ready so quickly- basically as the ink dried- well inspection came back that there were a few items that really were passable, but not done by professionals in repair. 

We didn’t go back and forth on this, simply made a counter asking in lieu of money for repairs or a lower price point, we countered with them leaving the beds, couch, butcher’s block. Pots, pans etc. so it’s now fully furnished and they took it.

So in summary in this Deal Dissection Episode we covered: 
– We’ve covered the numbers in the deal
– We’ve covered the walkthrough tour and RENT
– AND we’ve told you about how we SAVED this deal

So you’ve seen the entire story on Basil for now, this is a good piece to add to the Passive Income Portfolio. Deals like this require a good team that is always marketing for RENTERS to spot arbitrage opportunities with the RoomMate Model, The Executive Model or the Short Term Rental Models.

As always if you have any questions or if you want to see if you’re a good fit to do deals like this and create passive income of $30,000 a month over the next 3-5 years, then you should have at least 100k and good healthy income to start with. 

If you want to talk more about that and see if you’re a good fit just text me at: 317-969-5619

If you want to do deals like this here in Indy, we can set up a time to chat and see if we’re a good fit to work together- make sure you go to and get the most complete training in the world on creating passive income of $10,000 – $30,000 a month, go there and you’ll…
