Lance talks with Bill Fairman of Carolina Capital Management, a private lender focused on residential real estate investing. Bill cautions at the large number of Fix-and-Flippers right now who didn’t feel the pain of the ’08 downturn. They dig into transparency and risk as it relates to private lending, the versatility (and limitations) of single family, and the investment Bill wishes he could take back.
