Richard Price, Louisville Codes & Regs Director, Addresses KREIA

RICHARD PRICE videoIf you missed KREIA's May main meeting, you missed hearing from Richard Price, Louisville Metro City government's recentlly appointed Codes and Regulations Director.

He spoke from the podium for over half an hour near the beginning of our May 23rd meeting and bravely answered many landlords' questions and concerns about the Rental Registry and inspections.

We've got video of his speech posted near the bottom of the May meeting event page for KREIA members only. (You will need to be logged into the website as an active member.)

He gave us his phone number and email address, and you can find them in the video, if you'd like to reach out to ask follow-up questions.

Catch Up With Video Tours From 2 Recent L.O.T.S. Events

You'll want to follow along with Karen McKnight and L.O.T.S. hosts as they take you on a walkthrough of two amazing recent L.O.T.S. events!

On April 30th, Frank and Tommi Miller invited us to tour their St. Matthews diamond in the rough, which they reclaimed from 8 years' worth of jungle growth and polished into a diamond. But they have a dilemma now: should they flip it for a potential $140k+ payday? Or should they BRRRR it and ride the appreciation wave up, while also pocketing about $18k in tax-free refi cash and about $500/month in cash flow? It's good to have problems like that! KREIA members, watch the video and check out their numbers. And be blown away by the walkthrough!

A tornado warning canceled the original post-March meeting L.O.T.S. event, but that was just the beginning of the excitement. Host Travis Curtis rescheduled us to tour his Italianate Clifton behemoth, which he's turned into an 8-bedroom Airbnb -- painted pink! He used historical tax credits to create an elegant makeover that's classy from the basement mancave up through the many bedrooms on the second floor. KREIA members, log in and watch Travis's video from the April 16th event. Southern Living magazine really needs to pay a call on Travis!

Q&A With Ed Gibson: Longtime Investor Pays It Forward

Ed Gibson"KREIA is the only organization I know of – and I've been around the world eight times – and I have never, in my life, seen a group of people work so hard to try to make you a millionaire. I’m not kidding you."

Ed Gibson was speaking from experience here, and he believes in paying it forward!

Ed is a longtime KREIA member, a past board member, a past Lunch & Learn host, and a patent-holding engineer. He’s married and has four children and six grandchildren.

He is also one of KREIA's biggest cheerleaders, and he credits his investing success to our group. He’s not a typical real estate investor – he divides his energies between the stock market and real estate, and he makes a great case for why he doesn't like to put all his eggs in one basket.

His take on the synergy of two-prong investing is fascinating, and we sat down with him a couple of months ago to pick his brain – coming away with thousands of words of pure gold.

There wasn't room to fit the full interview in print and, trust us, you’ll want to read the whole thing. In the full transcript Ed talks about how he rehabs houses, he shares his investing strategy, gives specific recommendations, gives shoutouts to his many mentors, and offers solid advice.

If you're an active KREIA member currently logged into your account, you can read the full interview here.

Help the Children: Help the Home of the Innocents

The Home of the Innocents is a Louisville organization that takes care of abused, neglected, and medically fragile children. Even though we presented our annual check to the Home at our Holiday Party, the need for our assistance continues. Please make a much-needed gift to the Home through our fundraising page. (It's tax-deductible for you!) Or by purchasing something the children need that's mentioned on their Wish List.
