Slim Thug Talks Real Estate

Published: Saturday 8th Sep 2007 by Sam
Speaking to Blender, Houston rapper Slim Thug – who has been pretty successful in the real estate market – explains his concept of ‘Flippin Houses’. Here’s what he had to say:

Do Research
“I hire a researcher to find me property, but you can look on the Internet or go to auctions. Then have an appraiser inspect the house. Hopefully you can find somebody who’s about to be in foreclosure and be like, ‘Can you sell me your house rather than having these people just take everything from you?’”

Do More Research
“With auctions, research the list that they publish in advance. Once I said, ‘Fuck it,’ and spent $7,000 for a house without seeing it. Turns out, there wasn’t even a house on the land! Also, run comps (comparable sales) on the Internet — a house is worth what the last house that was sold nearby it is worth.”

Fix Things Up

“After buying the house, redo the restroom, the kitchen, the wood floors — simple shit that makes the house look better. If it’s worth $100,000 and you bought it for $60,000, spend no more than $20,000. Hire a manager; he’ll oversee a crew.In Texas there are Mexicans on the corner who are ready to work.”

Close the Sale
“To sell the house, you can get a realtor or, preferably, just put a FOR SALE BY OWNER sign on your front lawn to avoid fees. When you’ve got a buyer, run a credit check on him. Then, as long as the bank can make the loan go through, it’s good. When you have the money, then you go and flip another one!”

Finally! It’s great to see one of our rappers being smart and investing their wealth – something not enough of them do. Though Slim may not neccessarily be riding high on the charts, he will have made alot more than your average ‘Rims Flaunting’ rapper.

    Good … better to put your money in things that appreciate rather than having five cars in your driveway that are worth no where near what you paid for them.

    Another point … search the housing markets in areas you don’t live in as well. Try flipping when it’s a sellers market … in a buyers market you might find youself loosing money on your flip

    I think it’s great that he is investing his money wisely instead of just flaunting his wealth around like so many other rappers do—maybe someone should do a show about other rappers or entertainers who are doing stuff like this also, maybe we just don’t know about other black celebrities investing their money. I think it would be inspirational to the the black community

    constantly i used to read smaller content which also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading at this time.

    You may think you watch plenty of basketball or baseball games, but chances are you lack the pure statistical analysis it requires to build up a method of
    winning. It becomes the most popular game which
    could find not only in casinos but also be accomplished in home
    even you will discover it online. Betfair is really a useful tool, since it
    is possible to determine the precise sum of money which has been bet with
    a horse and exactly how much is open to back or lay at certain prices.
