“I think the big mistake is that the numbers are different. The number, like they see a house that’s like 75,000 that rents for $750 a month. And then go and buy it. But they don’t realize that that’s a commonplace. And they’re not buying a deal at all. And they’re buying at a market or even above market. And they, they don’t understand that because it’s totally different. You bought that $75,000 property, but it’s only worth $65,000, and it’s going to take you five or 10 years to get up to your 75.” – Glen Sutherland
