Section 8 Pros Darrick Scruggs Speaking at Detroit College

Section 8 Pros owner Darrick Scruggs will speak at Wayne County Community College in Detroit to share tips on how to rehab investment property and how to prepare property to pass any inspection, including Section 8


Detroit, MI -- Section 8 Pros owner Darrick Scruggs will be speaking at Wayne County Community College (WCCC) in Detroit on Thursday, February 17, 2011. He will be sharing tips on how to rehab your investment property and how to prepare your property to pass any inspection. Plus, he will discuss how to qualify your home for Section 8 renters.

One of the biggest ways that investors lose money is that they do not manage their repairs properly, and they cost more than they initially planned when they purchased the property. Incorrect repair estimates can eat most or all of the profit margin you planned to make. Scruggs will discuss things that he does to negotiate with contractors. He will make suggestions of things you can do to manage them once they are working for you.

Darrick is the owner of Section 8 Pros, recently moved from Southfield, Michigan and now based in Madison Heights. The company helps investors worldwide plus landlords and tenants in Detroit, Southfield, Farmington Hills, and Oak Park.

Section 8 Pros helps investors remove the stress in owning investment property. They specialize with helping investors who do not have the time, are too far, or just do not want to deal with the hassle of owning a property. These people want for these properties to make money for them, but they do not want the headache that comes with owning it.

For the landlord or investor, Section 8 Pros can find good investment properties, make intelligent repairs, finding a good tenant to live there, and manage the property so that the income is truly passive.

For the tenant, Section 8 Pros matches a renter’s needs to a good property where they can live and be happy.
