Section 8 Questions and Answers this week at REI of Virginia

Hello Everyone,

Yvonne set up a fantastic meeting this week. Our discussion will be about Section 8 rentals and working with the Roanoke Redevelopment and Housing Authority. Our speakers will be Kathy Beverage, Housing Choice Voucher Director and David Bustamante the VP of Housing for the Authority. 

Last week we briefly talked about the Section 8 program and there were lots of questions and concerns that the members had. We are going to voice those issues as well as tell them some of the things they are doing well with this week at the meeting. Section 8 is a fantastic program where you can get steady income and sometimes some pretty good tenants. There are some drawbacks as well and a few things that don’t seem real fair.

It’s going to be a fun informative meeting. Come On Out!

Mastering Property Management This Week at REI of Virginia


Hello everyone,

This week we are going to dig into everyone's favorite aspect of the landlording business… Property Management. I say that sarcastically as it’s one of the most difficult things to master. And one of the most critical to your financial well being to get right. 

There is nothing more important with this aspect of the business than  getting your non paying tenants out as fast as humanly possible and treating that new vacancy like the plague. To do this successfully you’ve got to put ALL of your attention on it until you have your property rented again by suitable residents. This done right and you will significantly increase your income. However any failure of a quick turnover and you will lose boatloads of cash that could have been used to pay your bills, grow your business, or just line your pockets. 

This week REI Officer, Rebekah Cornett, owner of B&C Services, a property management company, will be covering the process of quickly getting your court date, what to do in court to fulfill your objectives, then immediately filling a writ on the deadbeat resident to motivate them to either pay before the deputy gets there or move out so you can get a paying tenant in your property. It’s always nice to be able to pay your mortgage, taxes, insurance, etc.

It’s going to be an interesting topic. Come one, come all… We’ll see you there!

Free Windows and Doors In Your Rentals ~ This Week At REI

Hi Everyone, 

What if I told you that I know of a government program, that you can sign up for, and get free windows and doors throughout your rental properties? 

You probably wouldn’t believe me. But I can tell you that it IS true as I’ve used it several times.

Maybe you would would think that the stars have to align perfectly, in the right order, to get it. Which also isn’t true. I can tell you for a fact that the average person CAN get this program. That it’s EASY to get. And you don’t have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it. 

Then maybe you think that you would have to have the RIGHT FRIENDS in the RIGHT PLACES in order to get it. WELL NOW YOU’RE ON TO SOMETHING…

I’m pleased to announce….. that right friend. Who is in the right place. 

Our speaker this week will be our friend, Marla Robertson from Lead Safe Roanoke. She will be with us to tell us the details and what types of new developments and opportunities that they have. 

You work hard for every dollar you earn. And the government has always had their hand in your back pocket taking it out just as fast as you can earn it. 

Come on out to our meeting this week and learn how to get it back. With every house you get on this program, you will get thousands back in value. 

Wealthy people use every opportunity they can get to both save and make money. We’re giving you one right now. Take advantage of it. 

See you there!
