Key Takeaways: 

"I would say, the biggest mistake that I see investors make is not analyzing all the expenses properly. They'll look at the cash flow, mortgage, and taxes, and then they determine they're going to make $700 a month. But in reality, when you really look at the numbers, maybe it's only $200 a month."- Scott Dillingham 

"One quick tip that I have my clients do for better due diligence that's super easy because numbers don't lie, ask the previous owner for his tax return. You can clearly see the expenses that are in that property." - Scott Dillingham 

"To make it easier for someone to be refinanced properly, it is best to try to stay with one broker or one lender as you grow. What will happen is, we can recycle documents. It's cumbersome to apply for a mortgage, but if you're with the same person, and they can help you grow, it's easier to update." - Scott Dillingham
