Letter from a No Go zone landlord.
Hey Colin love your videos.
Thought I’d share my family’s experience. We got suckered into investing in a “Go-zone” after hurricane Katrina. We were told Louisiana and Mississippi were the hot places to invest in real estate.
My wife contacted an agent in Baton Rouge who told her he had rentals in the area and how easy they were to manage. After purchasing a 4plex we found out the fire dept will not go to this neighborhood without police escort.
Several times we had perspective tenants agree to rent units then back out of their contract when they actually went to the neighborhood for the first time. One tenant went to prison for murder the day he was supposed to move in and told his brothas they could move in instead. Never paid rent, illegally hooked up the electricity, and tried to steal an air conditioner from another unit. Had the Sheriff come out to evict them.
Another tenant would park on the lawn and let her teenage son run a muck including breaking into other units to tag and make a mess. Constant broken mailbox repairs.
Our first property manager was a very slow talking black guy. He would leave paint or supplies in the units and every time they were stolen by the following day.
Our second property manager was a black lady who claimed she needed an armed escort to visit the area, sent unprofessional management reports, and made it sound like she was trying to intentionally cause a slip and fall so she could sue us. We ended up selling the property for dirt cheap back to the guy who sold it to us.
Apparently this happened a few times so the FBI contacted us to make sure we weren’t in on the scam. We lost close to $80,000, but learned an important lesson.
My wife now calls these areas no-go zones.
