Bruce and Aaron Norris Join IE Builder Alex Serrato on the Norris Group Real Estate Radio Show #550

Bruce Norris is joined again this week by Alex Serrato. Alex is a local builder in Riverside who he has partnered with on many deals. One of the reasons Bruce wanted him to come in is they have had a good experience working with each other, and his niche is one that might be an advantage to other investors. It is hard for them to find deals right now, but working from scratch might be another niche they can employ.

Bruce and Alex discuss the process for finding lots and buying land, his work with mailers, percolation tests and all the necessary tests to take with homes, pros and cons of paved and dirt roads, grading permits, protected species in Riverside County, Megan's Law and and this helps to check for neighborhood crime, and much more on this week's Norris Group real estate radio show and podcast.
