Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Being stranded at the airport waiting for a flight is never fun but Jason and Fernando make the best of it by recording their observations of the investment property tour of Chicago and Grand Rapids. Overall, Chicago looks promising with strong providers and good properties. Grand Rapids was charming and offered many financing choices for current and future investors. A quick stop was made to Detroit to get feel for the area and look for opportunities that may be hiding there. The extra stop proved to be a disappointment based on the city’s state of disrepair and mass exodus of previous inhabitants.
