How to Flip Houses With No Money Down

How to Flip Houses With No Money Down

For most new real estate investors, cash is the greatest barrier to entry.  Because even when you borrow 80% of a home’s purchase price, that still leaves you coming up with $50,000 for a down payment on a $250,000 home. Which says nothing of closing costs, renovation...

Denise Supplee & Brian Davis

SparkRental’s Founders: Real Estate Investors (not faceless corporate hacks)

Spark Rental was launched by two friends and former colleagues, Deni Supplee and G. Brian Davis, who love passive income, and love helping other landlords and property managers earn more of it!

Deni became a landlord by necessity when, as a recently-single mom, she could no longer afford to pay for both rent and groceries for her four young girls. She rented out the master bedroom in her little rowhouse, and moved her bed into a walk-in closet in the hallway.

(Yeah, it was kinda like Harry Potter.)

But she ended up becoming close friends with her new housemate, and fell in love with being a landlord. She went on to manage first vacation rentals, then long-term rentals, then a 200+ unit apartment complex. And she bought her own rental portfolio in the process.

Brian has wanted to retire since he graduated college and sat down at a cubicle for the first time. Unfortunately, he had no idea what he was doing when he went on his first rental property buying spree. A buying spree which he undertook from 2006-2008 (which may have been the worst three-year stretch to buy real estate since, well, ever).

But all those expensive mistakes came with some hard-won, first-hand lessons. Which he’s gone on to share in dozens of interviews with media outlets ranging from U.S. News & World Report to Realtor.com to Time Money and countless others.

Brian and his family spend much of the year overseas, and have lived on three continents. But he hails from Baltimore originally and nostalgizes frequently about his Fells Point townhouse and kooky family and friends.

SparkRental originally launched as a free educational resource, but now provides automated rent collection, editable lease agreements, free tenant screening reports (for the landlord), a free rental application and premium online courses for landlords. We have some incredible innovations our genius tech team is building out, that we are 100% positive will disrupt and revolutionize the rental industry.
