- 23:50 In Dawn’s 30 years of investing, she has never seen a bank enforce the due-on-sale clause. Doing so would mean the house would have to go through the entire foreclosure process, and the bank would lose 40% of the value of the house.
- 24:39 Dwan urges you to go to dwanderful.com and find the deed. Try and fill one out, because we will soon go over deeds.
- 24:51 Dwan further clarifies that if a bank enforced the due-on-sale clause, the bank would have to go through the entire foreclosure process and hire an attorney to be able to officially call the note due. In over 2000 deals, she has never seen a bank call it due.
- 26:26 Dwan explains when signing the contract with the homeowner and signing a contract with the rehabber, you can put anything in writing. As long as you both initialed it, it overrides what is in the contract. Whatever you write overrides the original verbiage.

- 31:21 Dwan shares about her first deal, and how she didn’t consider what the homeowner was going through because she was going through her own stuff.
- 32:21 Dwan explains that by her 3rd house she started recognizing how distraught the homeowners were. She decided every deal would now be about making their lives better. When you do what is right and don’t worry about the money, the money will flow.
- 32:51 Dwan urges to put the homeowner first, and the rest will work itself out.
- 33:31 Dwan says to treat homeowners with respect and love. Whatever your mess is, over time it becomes your message.
- 34:36 Dwan says to share your mess with a homeowner. People feel better about their own mess when they know you have a mess too.

- 35:40 Dawn’s challenge this week is to go for a 20-minute meditative walk a day. While you’re walking think about the homeowners. Think about your situation as you’re trying to become a real estate investor. Get some sun and fresh air.
