S1E27: How to get the Best Acquisition Rehabs in Single and Multifamily with Mike DeHaan
Nov 3, 2021 29 min

Episode Description

The best deals are found when you’re willing to do what no one else is willing to do. Mike DeHaan started out his career as an electrical engineer wearing a pair of golden handcuffs. Mike started researching passive income and found REI, but he knew if he wanted a real passive income, he needed to change his approach. This is when he started networking more, employed a different strategy and watched the calls start rolling in. Today, Mike has hired staff and improved his systems to be able to handle consistently doing 3-5 deals per month. As of now he owns 28 doors, and has completed 48 deals in his 3 years investing and now generates more passive rental income than he used to make with his 6 figure salary by taking on deals that others won't.
