EPISODE 73: How to be Financially Free FAST With Fewer Deals Than You Think featuring Vance Courtney
THE PROFIT FIRST REI PODCAST
FEB 03, 2022
Vance is the founder of SOS Home Offers. He found his purpose in real estate and has dedicated his knowledge industry to impacting other people and helping them see results and succeed in the real estate world.
Prior to that, he served in the military. He learned something from his mate, who is always buying a home whenever they move in order to keep it in the hope to have two retirements. That stayed with him even after he got out of the army. So he started buying homes with the intent of holding them. It had always been that way until 2016 when he realized it was a very long-term play. He wanted to get into the game faster and looked for turnkey investment properties, but it didn’t work so well for him – he even lost $40,000. Lesson learned.
He then started finding investment properties and created a rental business that earned him a lot of revenue. And this is where, like any other business, some financial management issues arose. But with the help of the Profit First model, he was able to get a deeper understanding and control of the financial side of his business and is now growing more than ever.
Listen in as we discuss how he effectively applied the method and how the whole concept helped him in directing money in his business.

David Richter – Host (00:23):
Hey, everyone. We’ve got another amazing guest today, Vance Courtney of SOS Homebuyers and I am super excited to have him on because he is a client of SimpleCFO. This is in our client series, but he is also a very good friend of mine. And not that any of the other clients aren’t, I have several good friends among the clients, but Vance and I have been a part of several different groups together and we’ve formed a special bond, so I’m really excited to have him on today. And he’s one of the biggest givers that I know. He gives and just the conversation we were having before this recording of how he measures how his company is doing and how … I’m not going to steal his thunder, so I’m going to let him talk about that.
David Richter – Host (01:08):
He’s got some awesome, what I call superpowers. I much want to get the clients to know and out there of what their superpowers are. What are you really good at? For him, we’ve got some exciting ones to talk about. He’s got a tech background, which is pretty amazing, so if you’re out there with your CRMs clunking around or whatnot, he’s done stuff like that before and he’s done a lot of cool things in the real estate space and outside the real estate space. Then we’re going to go into some of the stuff at the end there with Profit First and how he’s implemented that since this is a Profit First REI podcast, and then just a couple other questions.
David Richter – Host (01:44):
But Vance, excited to have you on. Thanks for coming on the show today.
Vance Courtney – Guest (01:49):
No, thank you so much. I really appreciate that, and man, the feeling’s mutual. I definitely love the friendship that we have and I love getting together and syncing up with you whenever we can.
David Richter – Host (01:58):
Yes. Vance is an avid game player, so there you go. The cat’s out the bag. If you want to play some board games like strategic games, Vance is the man. I love them too. If you’re looking at my picture right now, I definitely look like that type of person. I know Vance doesn’t. He’s got the cool man vibe, but I’m definitely a board game player, but he’s got some awesome, awesome stuff. He’s even got, we won’t go into it, but it was amazing. Some of the stuff that we were able to do and some of the trips that we take.
David Richter – Host (02:29):
But Vance, super exciting to have you on, but let’s get people knowing who you are, how’d you get started in real estate, where are you now, getting them to know you a little bit.
Vance Courtney – Guest (02:37):
Yeah, absolutely. So My getting started in real estate started back when I was in the military and I heard a statement from a guy who was doing 20 years and he said, “Look, every time I moved every couple years, I’m buying a home and I’m just going to stay in that home and keep it. So that way I have two retirements when I get out.” So I thought I was going to do 20 years, in the military. Well, only four years in and I ended up getting out and that still stuck with me though. Technically my first home was my personal home that I bought in 2008 and I bought that with it, being a three, two, great school district. I didn’t have kids. It was just me, so always focused on all right, buying with intent of holding.
Vance Courtney – Guest (03:15):
We did this all the way until about 2016. It was like, “All right, time to start fighting for some rental properties,” and realized that moving and holding was a very long term play, it was just too long. I wanted to go a little bit faster. Sometimes you got to slow down though. I think it was the end of 2018 I bought my first turnkey investment. I’m in Augusta, Georgia, which is a great rental market, right? You know, good, good old Midwest. I hear I should have bought somewhere else at a better, cheaper rate, not always in your backyard. So I bought in Detroit, Michigan.
Vance Courtney – Guest (03:55):
Let’s just say that I bought it and the turnkey insert turn. So turnkey, the tenant left flood stuff stolen out of it. Lost pretty bad on that one. I was all right, well I cannot be buying turnkey. How do I find a discounted property? Right? Like I want to find out how to get a discounted property for my investing. And so after that one, that was like a $40,000 loss. That was like the most, a very brutal lesson learned and was how do I source the deals in my own backyard? And then no, through like a mutual error, like Tom, Tom pro classic learned through his methods. And to be honest, when I realized that finding discounted properties, I have a tech background, like you were saying is a very repeatable thing. And I have a rule of three where if I’m doing the same thing over three times, I’m going to automate it. And so I looked at something very similar. I’m [inaudible 00:04:41] the properties seems to be very repeatable. And so instead of just focusing on just finding the investment properties, we focused on again, creating a business out of this. And that’s like the story of how I’ve got into the real estate and we’re now picking up some rentals along the way. And yeah.
David Richter – Host (04:57):
Awesome. I love that. That where you say, if you do three things in a row, or three things over again, you look to automate it. if you just take that snippet, as, if you’re listening to this right now and implement that in your business, that’ll help you scale a whole lot faster.
David Richter – Host (05:13):
Yeah. And from that perspective. So that was great. Thank you so much. That was a, that was a great snippet there then. Okay. Let me ask you this. Why real estate, why did you get into real estate and like what’s the why behind it?
Vance Courtney – Guest (05:25):
Yeah, absolutely. So I actually was still doing the stock market since I was like 18 or 19 putting in the 5% using the TSP at the time, military like 401k type and then was always, actually all the way until 2018 – 2019. I actually still invested into 401ks well about buying these rentals. And I figured, well, one of them’s going to fail. The only one’s got to succeed. Right. And then I was doing just a classic, traditional method of 401k, wait till I’m 65. And in 2018 it hit me. It was okay. I hit it in a pinnacle, like a good spot in my career. I was making good money in the tech field. I was okay, I’m maxing the 401ks. You know, if I just pick up a couple homes, this great. I was I just got to do this for the next 40 years.
Vance Courtney – Guest (06:10):
And I was rinsing and repeating for the next 40 years without changing anything did not sound very enticing. So I was how do I do this in five years? So then it was just that whole, how do I shrink that timeline? And I realized that putting the money in the stocks and man I’m telling you, I should not be in the stocks for sure. Because when I ran since 2002, my realized returns, it was 4% actual returns. Most people don’t, you don’t look at, but I looked at my actual rate of return consistently was 4%. I’m oh no, this, this isn’t going to work anymore. And so we stopped with that and then went into the traditional real estate. And then we do some lending as well, just for the higher percentage rate. It just started realizing of, I believe firmly that your wealth isn’t created in real estate.
Vance Courtney – Guest (06:58):
I really don’t believe that. I believe it’s preserved through real estate and wealth is created through businesses, right? I believe that flipping it’s in wholesaling, which is what I primarily do. They’re transactional, real estate’s just a product of the business, but to invest into rentals, you have to have capital and you have to generate that through a high income or through business. And I believe that’s the real wealth generation. And then the preservation through taxes, appreciation, appreciation is through real estate. Why you don’t get all those benefits in the stocks. And that’s why my choice in real estate.
David Richter – Host (07:28):
Okay. Well, that’s an awesome, I love the way that you put that. That was very simple. That was very clear, concise that is so true that the wealth really is created from the business aspect of it. Then you preserve it through the real estate. That’s that’s awesome. But then, so then that’s a great transition into then what makes up like a real business then? And part of that is the financial side is knowing the financial side. And since this, as a profit first for real estate investing podcast, let’s talk about that. Like when did that white bulb click for you? That it is the business that you create the wealth and then how the finances play into that as a whole of not just learning to be the CEO and bring in the top dollars, but then learning to keep it too.
Vance Courtney – Guest (08:13):
Yeah. When I, when you comes back to reverse engineering it, right? You find out what your financial freedom numbers, some people call it that, right? Whatever that magic number is, or you don’t have to work over the rest of a day in your life. And I realized that if I picked up properties with very little or equity, there’s a little equity in there, right. I’m going to be getting you’re shooting for what, one, $200, however, many, how much dollars per door then I was oh, okay. So I need like 36 doors. It’s a lot of doors. That’s a lot of time to try and get to that. So then it came down to what, what is causing that? Why do I need 36 doors and why not just eight doors? Right. And it’s because of the cash flow and the equity.
Vance Courtney – Guest (08:51):
And so that’s what came to the plan. It’s well, I need to generate money. And I personally, you can generate a lot with an income, right? You do not have to have just a business, but a very high income and limiting, a little bit conservative to capitalize on that. Right. So like being in the tech field was one of them, but it wasn’t fulfilling anymore. So that’s why I looked at something else, which we, I can dive in a little bit more about why the business side, but through the wealth like generator, right. That’s, that’s pretty much where I believe over the real estate where I wanted to have smaller doors, more than just how many doors I can have, and actually look at the cash flow of how to get to that retirement number, if that makes sense.
David Richter – Host (09:29):
Yeah. No, I love that. So let’s go into the why of the business side and yeah, yeah. Go.
Vance Courtney – Guest (09:34):
That was so to be honest, it’s I really enjoy helping others and serving others. So when I started the business, oh man, I got to give, I’ve got another shout out for this book. The four spiritual laws of prosperity. I started this business for pure greed. If I’m just to be honest, I was oh, I got to make a lot more money. I can make more money than I did in tech. Right. But as I started generating doing, I’m okay, again, if I just repeat this for the next, 10 years you start losing, it’s okay, once you know how to make money making money is actually not the hard part. The hardest part I’m having is finding like my identity, my purpose, right. Everybody’s that you’re looking for. And I love serving. And one of the life changing books was the four spiritual laws of prosperity really changed me finding actually after I read that book, it was no longer just about the money.
Vance Courtney – Guest (10:19):
And for me, it’s more about God’s work. Right. And I have this, like I desire, I love helping people and I’m going to be honest. Like I, my favorite thing is I’m probably the most selfish person you’ll meet. Right. And I say this because if helping people maybe feel bad, I probably, we wouldn’t help very many people.
Vance Courtney – Guest (10:39):
Our thing is I feel good when I help somebody and I see the results and the impact that I can have. I feel good of that. And it’s that’s my high. And that’s what I want more of. And so for me, I was just getting started. So I’m a big thing of, I advocate of I got to produce results before I can help others and coach, and I just, my own personal mentality of like before I coach or help others, I want to have a track record of success in that field.
Vance Courtney – Guest (11:01):
Right. What I found through business though, is there’s a way of like my leadership style is through coaching. And so I found that I wanted to grow the business. And I got a mission that when, and I told this to the people, right, that come on with SOS that I want SOS my company, SOS home offers kind have a bigger impact on your life forever than you’ll have in the short duration that you’ll be staying with us. Right. And I set that realistic. Like they’re going to move on. I want them to grow, even if it’s within the company. Great. But I want that lifelong impact. And to be honest, like that’s where I feel like I’m fulfilling. It’s that’s my fulfillment. And that’s the paycheck I actually look forward to that’s my, so that’s why the business I’m how do I grow this and start impacting these people? And that’s my favorite part.
David Richter – Host (11:43):
Awesome. No, I love that. That’s I, and you were even talking about how you were reverse engineering. How many people do I need to serve in order to, really get where we need to be. And it’s that’s just a totally different frame of reference than any, any quarterly meeting or any annual meeting that you hear out there. It’s okay, how many doors do we need to sell? Or what is our profit per deal need to be? You know, it’s like those types of questions, but I love how you had frame that before we were on that call. You’re how many people do I need to serve in order to get [inaudible 00:12:14]
Vance Courtney – Guest (12:13):
Right? And that’s like with the sellers. Right? Cause just to give that background is, I never feel good with okay, I want to hit this. I know we have to have metrics and KPIs to measure right. Something tangible. Right. And so the biggest one is always going to be your revenue, right. Gross and net, that’s fine. Like that’s, that’ll be the next fun part. But I didn’t ever like saying, oh, we’re at this, this much revenue. I didn’t feel good. Trying to convince people when my admission statement is, helping distress sellers, in need and providing their best option, even if we’re not in. Right. And what really disturbed me is when one day somebody came up to me and says, is this still really worth pursuing? I mean, we’re only going to make
Vance Courtney – Guest (12:54):
And it sat with me cause it was I mean, well, yes, we’re here to serve the people. It doesn’t matter. Like we broke even on deals before. And the fact that it wasn’t clear. And so instead of talking about how much revenue we’re hitting and how many deals we’ve done, it’s how many families did we serve? And we now set a metric based on the number of families we serve. So that way, if it’s, even if we don’t make money on it, they, when they come back to that question, I can then simply say, well, does it serve the family? Yes, it does go serve. Right. And that’s what I like. And I believe that when you’re in a servant mindset, the money will follow. So I don’t stress or worry about the money and let’s just serve the people, both again, the sellers. And then we do the same thing with the buyers. And then of course the people on our team.
David Richter – Host (13:34):
Yeah, no, I love that. And Vance is a leader. You know, like this is leadership. This is what a business owner. And we’ve had this on our podcast before where people say, the CEO is a skillset. It’s something that you learn to do. And it’s learning to be that leader. And Vance has definitely done that. And he is taken that leadership from every aspect of his business from just sellers to the people on his team. If we had more time, we talk about the culture that he’s created. He’s created an incredible culture with his team and the stuff that, the stories that he is talked about. And it’s just, you need to follow Vance Courtney, you need to follow, see what he’s doing. He’s going to spoil. He’s going to be doing he’s coaching and will be helping people because I believe Vance has something different.
David Richter – Host (14:22):
He’s just not going to tell you how to make money in real estate. He’s going to tell you how to, how to be fulfilled as that owner and how to not only be fulfilled as the owner help other people feel fulfilled as human beings, too, if they’re on your team or that seller on the other end, that’s goi through a horrible situation, it’s that’s what it’s really all about. So if we had more time, we’d go into culture. But Vance, let’s talk a little bit more about profit first, the profit first for real estate investing and really about that system and how you’ve implemented it. And what has that whole concept meant to you from the business aspect and being able to direct your money and your cash?
Vance Courtney – Guest (14:58):
No, it’s game changing, to be honest. So when we first started off revenue started coming in and, as always, you’re taking in all these different books and I look at books as a solving my current problem. Right. I pick book based on what’s my current problem I want to solve. Right? Yep. So I have, over a hundred books lined up for, okay, what’s my next problem. Go pick from that solution right there. Right. And one of them was I want to make sure I have a profitable company when I first started. And so from almost, I’d say day one, but like from the minute we got our first paycheck, I read into profit first and we implemented that right off the bat. Matter of fact, this will be fun because we self-implemented the profit first model and we were doing pretty well with this.
Vance Courtney – Guest (15:39):
Right. And I hope you don’t mind. I’m going to share up your story. I love the story. It’s one of my favorites, to be honest.
Vance Courtney – Guest (15:45):
Yeah. So we, I ended up signing doing really well and we had a great, this is just me and one other person. So didn’t have a lot of overhead or anything. And we had like a 63% profit margin and I was all right, well I heard about, SimpleCFO was oh they, they follow profit first. I need to go with SimpleCFO. Right? I got to check this out, let me go into it. And that’s when David and I first went, was through this connection here. And it was only a few months while I was testing, going with it, working with it. I’m you know what?
Vance Courtney – Guest (16:13):
Like as much as I like this, I want to have a friendship with Dave, but I’m I don’t pay for friendships. I’m I got to find an ROI in this. Like I got to see the return. I mean, I’m not a five percentage profit. Why do I, why do I need this service? This was a mistake. Because once the growth started happening, it fell out. Want to, we started growing the teams and growing my time of like invested with the company. Guess what first started to take wayside was my attention to that detail that I was paying attention. That counts splitting it out. Yes. Just having it set up with the discipline went away when I wasn’t being held accountable to certain things. And so after a few months I was oh my goodness, I haven’t split this up for, I haven’t done this. And I realized I wasn’t paying attention to it.
Vance Courtney – Guest (16:56):
And what, as the saying goes, you know what you give focus to. Right. You know what you inspect, you expect right. Something along those lines.
David Richter – Host (17:03):
Vance Courtney – Guest (17:03):
And I was oh no, this just isn’t going to work out. And we still stayed friends. That’s my favorite part about this whole thing is once we were done with the business, we stayed connected. Cause I was look, it’s nothing personal. And it wasn’t, we became more friends and I’m you know what, let me give this back a shot because I started seeing a decline to the point where I was not actually I didn’t know where I was. And so if you were ask me, well, how did your profit decline? I didn’t know what my profit was.
David Richter – Host (17:27):
Vance Courtney – Guest (17:27):
That’s the decline. And so I brought in somebody again, came back and I was all right, well I need to do more than just, and then here’s a big tip.
Vance Courtney – Guest (17:35):
I know I’m going to go a little bit off rail here is don’t look at like a SimpleCFO, which is a fractional CFO company as a glorified bookkeeper. That was my mistake that I made the first time. I was oh, all they’re doing is double checking books. I got a bookkeeper. No, you need to find the right person that matches. And we’re doing like variance reports. Now we’re doing well strategy. It’s more than just looking at the numbers. The numbers are being double checked for sure. But I’m leveraging it for more now. And we’re sitting with a healthy company with multiple people. I only work a few hours a day in the business now. And we’re sitting at, well over 50% net profit right. In the company. And that’s because I’m working with, I’m going to shout out to Rocky, working with Rocky.
Vance Courtney – Guest (18:17):
I love working with him. the guy is hands down helpful and we’re consistent together. And he holds me accountable. And that’s the piece that you need. It’s most people well, I don’t need a CFO. Right. And I thought this, this is what I’m going to get at. I was I can’t afford it. Right. Well, this is where fractional comes in. It’s perfect for the small business. Right. And then it came down to but I mean, I know what, I know how to split it out. I know how to do the target allocation. It’s more than that. And I realized that it’s just your basis for it. And it’s I need the CFO. I, my, the most dangerous thing is not knowing what you don’t know. Right.
David Richter – Host (18:53):
Vance Courtney – Guest (18:53):
And that’s the part where he was well, we could try this and brought the ideas and it turned into where now we have leadership meetings. He is my CFO for all intents and Purposes.
David Richter – Host (19:02):
Yeah. No, I love that. And thank you. I tell everyone, we don’t pay people to say this, so I appreciate you.
Vance Courtney – Guest (19:09):
David Richter – Host (19:10):
That about us because yeah. We want to make sure that people are held accountable. That’s one of the biggest things that we do is just hold people accountable because so many people just need that in order to get to where they want to be. we want Vance to be successful in order to help those people. Vance is like on the back end here, like we know, we know vision, we know his values and like the people that he is serving and you can’t do that. If you’re running around like a chicken with your head cut off and you don’t know what your profit is and you’re stressed all the time. So yeah. It’s that’s why our mission is to help these owners get to that place where they’re Hey, we’re rolling.
David Richter – Host (19:45):
I don’t have to work in the business as much. I can really focus on what I’m really good at. So yeah, appreciate that Vance. And then the pro first system, just, just the act of splitting out those accounts and getting that in place, knowing where your money is going so that’s just another huge point. If you didn’t hear there too, Vance is a reader, and he reads for the solutions to his problem, not just to read which, like a lot of people read, might read or might not read, but he’s very intentional before we got on the call, he told me the next book that he’s reading right now. And I know that’s because he wants to focus on this area of his life to be able to get into that.
David Richter – Host (20:27):
And if you’re wondering, it’s deep work by Cal Newport, I believe is his name, amazing book. How highly recommend that book, please go out and buy it. It’ll make you want to throw your phone in a link after you read it. So just a heads up there, a spoiler alert, but there you go. So that was just another nugget that I wanted to pull out of there that read to be intentional. If you’ve got an issue, someone, I say this all the time in the business, every business issue is solvable. Like someone’s had that issue before. They’ve just had it at either a different level than you or at your exact same level. So go read, go get that person or go read about it. So there you go. There’s another tip from Vance. That was awesome. So then just coming down to the last few questions here, is there anything else you recommend or like encourage investors to do, or like just in general, whether it be personal, professional, financial, whatever.
Vance Courtney – Guest (21:20):
No. First is just, implement profit first. You can pick up the profit first book where you can even pick up the profit first for real estate investors. Like actually focusing on your niche if you’re in investment, but more than just pick it up, if anything, right. Just implement the allocations. That can even be a Google search away. Right. Implement the allocation starting off. And another comment I want to make is you, even if you’re say you’re the attention to detail type person and you’re ah, I’ll never let that slip. I’ll always do my bookkeeping and then do my target allocations. There’s one other real big piece I want to say is, don’t forget that a good CFO also has a powerful network. Right. And that’s the other part. So when you’re starting to grow and you’re getting more, instead of just trying to research, whether you want to go into like any again, legacy wealth building from, an infinite banking concept, any of these things, there’s people that will connect you with somebody, with your circle of trust in your network. Right. And that trustful network is almost invaluable to me. So that’s another thing that I want to say about regarding the financial side, for sure.
David Richter – Host (22:23):
Awesome. Well, wish we had like hours and hours to keep talking, because really Vance could be go on about a lot of the things in his business. A lot of things that he does personally, he’s got Vance. Also, just to shout out here, very family conscious, make sure that he does, the business does not hinder him from the life he wants to live. It is fueling the life he wants to live. And so this is someone that I truly believe in. We’ve had a lot of good talks before deep talks, deep conversations. So I can talk about this a little bit more with Vance, which brings us to my last question. Is there any way our listeners can provide value to you? And I’ve already, I’ve already asked Vance. So I know the answers before this. So I’m going to tell you right away, just very bottom line, want to learn.
David Richter – Host (23:09):
He learn how to buy, flip and sell businesses. That’s one big thing. So if you are in the market, or if you know someone who does that and trains on that, he’s always looking for that, but he is also doing coaching as well, too. So if you want a coaching mentor, someone that will get you from maybe zero to, your first, million dollars or whatnot, Vance can do that. Vance is not only going to help you from a lot of the times. It’s just getting out of your own way. It’s getting out of your own way. And Vance is amazing at that his team, the culture that he’s built, I’m building him up huge because I truly believe in Vance, but I want to know if you are a listener on this podcast, if Vance, is there anything else? Is there anything else you’d like to say or maybe how they could connect with you if they want to connect with you or anything else that you’d like to add?
Vance Courtney – Guest (23:55):
Yeah, absolutely. You can just reach out to me, firstname.lastname@example.org. And to be honest, if you even just have some questions, anything I can do to help, or it doesn’t have to be like direct coaching, just even just a few guiding principles and maybe you’re just torn between a few things, please reach out. Like it’s really nice to get that outsider’s perspective. I know that even when I was starting off, maybe you didn’t need like any of the direct coaching, just having somebody to bounce off with your intentions in mind. Right. Without any other side that I’d love to be able to help out from any like strategic questions. I don’t mind at all technical anything please.
