Secrets of Turnkey Investing with Eric Martel


Turnkey Investing has its pros and cons so if you can learn the secrets, you are better prepared to have success. Turnkey Investing is when an investor buys a rehabbed property from a provider, which is already rent-ready. The provider helps that investor rent and manage the property.

Now he wants to share what he's learned so you don't make the same mistakes he did with turnkey investing.
