Rob Bergeron interviews Hampton Scurlock, a prolific Louisville wholesaler and high-volume landlord.

Rob and Hampton talk about how they teamed up to raise money for the Home of the Innocents: pitching five local closing companies on donating $10 for every closing they do for KREIA investors. So, if you're closing on a property from now through December 31, 2020, with any of these companies -- Rawn Law Firm, Borders & Borders, Rounsavall Title Group, The Law Office of Brad Lammi and Millennial Title -- be sure to tell them you're with KREIA!

Rob also quizzes Hampton on how he uses his self-directed IRAs and HSAs to purchase rental property, even as subject-to deals.

Were you unable to attend KREIA's August 27th main meeting, "Foundations of Finance"? Catch up with a recording of the live video stream, saved over in our Facebook members-only group.

In our main presentation, Erik Hitzelberger taught us what they didn't teach us in school: how to manage money and create for ourselves a well-funded retirement -- and how to use real estate to do it.

In attorney Michelle Rawn's Legislative Update, she describes the brand-new rule on the 30-day notice required for filing evictions during COVID -- Kentucky landlords can no longer send 7-day letters. Nor can they charge late fees.

This recording does not include our Member Orientation presentation with Jordan Pohn and Stacey Duvall or KREIA President Chris McCarty's Early Meeting on how to invest in real estate using your IRA. We will update you when those segments are available for viewing, and you will definitely want to see them.

But this recording does include Chris's tribute to former KREIA President Hank Schildknecht, who passed away earlier in the week. Hank was a great friend to KREIA, and we will miss him dearly.

Ideas for Rehabbing With Accessibility in Mind

AccessibilityDuring KREIA's July 2020 virtual main meeting, Hope Leet Dittmeier of Mattingly Edge talked about the need for housing for people with physical and intellectual disabilities. She said that if the housing includes accessibility features, that's even better.

Hope described a Universal Design Toolkit document laying out levels of universal design — which takes into account the needs of everyone in the design and construction of housing. Considering that 26% of adults in the United States experience some sort of disability, according to this document, it's something we real estate investors should take into consideration as we build and remodel houses. And let's not forget that, as we age, many of us may one day be included in this segment of the population.

Universal design concerns the needs of people of all sizes, physical abilities and concentration levels. It addresses such things as no-step entrances, first-floor bathrooms (with grab bars), doorways wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs, lowered kitchen countertops, raised electrical outlets, and more.

Are you interested in incorporating accessibility features in your rehabs? Check out a copy of the Universal Design Toolkit document Hope emailed us — view the PDF here.
