Join Jonathan on a fascinating journey as he unravels the many aspects of property investment with Perry Keenan of Keenan & Associates. Perry sheds light on the often-overlooked actual costs of flipping houses and the importance of having reliable contractors on standby.

Discover how partnerships and collaborations can lead to great strides in the real estate world as Perry recounts his own experience under contract for a mobile home park in Alabama.
