Residential Short Sales
JBH Properties Investments & Consulting LLC is a real estate investing firm dealing in short sales in South Florida.
If you’re new to short sales, this refers to a type of real estate investment involving a distressed property, where the homeowner is behind on mortgage payments and facing imminent foreclosure.
A short sale is, by definition, a property sale that’s approved by the lender for a price that’s less than what the property owner owes to the bank. So the sale comes up “short” on covering the total amount due to the lender. The bank must approve a short sale offer before the sale and proceed, so this can be associated with a bit of extra time when it comes to the timeframe for the transaction.
Generally, the property owner is released from further obligation to the lender once the short sale is approved.
Short sales are typically performed in a very prompt manner. The haste with which these real estate transactions are performed results in a sale price that’s typically significantly less than the property’s actual market value. Therefore, many investors will purchase short sale properties, which are then re-sold as-is for a profit.
Purchasing short sale properties can be very profitable for real estate investors, especially for those who are involved in flipping and rehabbing. Flipping and rehabbing involves performing repairs and upgrades to the property in order to boost its market value. This increases the profit margin. The only real risk is the fact that you’re tying up capital in a property, so recovery of your investment funds (and profit) is contingent upon the sale of the home.

About Jeffrey Love and JBH Properties Investments & Consulting LLC
The founder of JBH Properties Investments & Consulting LLC, Jeffrey Love is a real estate investment specialist, dealing in short sales, fix and flips and wholesaling opportunities.
Jeffrey Love came into the real estate investing field largely by chance. “I started from the bottom up,” he explained. He went to school to become a loan officer and mortgage broker. He worked in the financial area of the real estate industry for about two years, in 2006 and 2007.
But this wasn’t Jeffrey’s only venture. “I established a landscaping company from nothing and built it up to the point where I had two full-time employees and four part-time employees. At that point, I still had a full-time job in finance and I managed the landscaping at nights and on weekends,” Jeffrey explained.
He continued, “I started out with residential clients and then moved into some small commercial clients and it was around this time I encountered an investor who was buying houses, performing fix and flips. This spurred my interest in real estate investing.”
A family member was also involved in the real estate industry, with numerous property holdings, totaling about 300 units. “He was doing well in real estate too, so it really piqued my interest further,” Jeffrey explained.
So he finally took the plunge, working with a partner to acquire a rental property in Southport, Florida. They planned to fix up the property and maintain it as rental holding. But just when things were starting to get underway, the unthinkable occurred: “I gave my partner full access to the account. He cleaned it out and ran off with the money.”
But this negative experience didn’t deter Jeffrey from moving ahead in the industry. He continued working his day job in the mortgage and lending industry.
In 2007, Jeffrey attended school to become a real estate agent and it was around this time that he encountered another real estate investor who served as a mentor of sorts, helping him to get involved with wholesaling real estate. He also attended numerous training courses to learn more about the laws, techniques and strategies surrounding the real estate investing industry.
Jeffrey has been dealing in wholesaling since 2008, handling various real estate wholesaling transactions on a part-time basis.
“It was February 2015 when I got real serious about investing and wholesaling. In the period from September 2015 to December 2015, I started making some serious money and making good contacts. I earned about $30,000 in wholesaling during that period,” he explained.
Jeffrey Love is now involved in fix and flips, wholesaling and short sales, both for residential properties and commercial properties.
He deals primarily with properties in Bradenton, Sarasota, Manatee County and Hillsborough County, Florida.
Jeffrey is open to purchasing distressed properties directly from property owners. He’s also open to new partnerships with fellow investors who are seeking to pursue a joint venture.
