Wow, just look at the equity possibilities here. Here is $315k of instant equity just sitting around waiting for you to tap.

But what A.L. really wanted to point out was the fact that this place currently rents out for $2000 a month! Can you believe that? $2000 a month in East Palo Alto. Talk about an amazing revenue stream. I wonder who is paying that rate – what are your thoughts?

Five minutes from downtown Woodside, this extensively remodeled 3 bedroom 3 bath home offers spacious, light filled rooms, magnificent views and quality finishes. The grounds consist of manicured lawn areas, patio and new landscaping. The approximately 1300 sf remodeled guest quarters provide an open kitchen and living room, full bath and two bonus rooms. 3 car garage.

Look at this flip. Looks like a 100K renovation, but doubled the $1M+ price!

Well, that’s curious. Let’s check out the history:


Holy moley! If this house appreciated 85% for the current owner this year alone, how much will this house appreciate for you next year?

My god… this house might be a trillion dollars by the end of the next decade! Put that sleeping money of yours into this property, and let it ride! Let it RIDE!
