8:45 am
33:40 d: did you take over from a previous restaurant? because we've been at this location before but it was called something else. ngoc tran: we're new. the owner is new. ngoc tran says pho d'licious took over in may, and they've already almost been shut down with a 39-demerit c grade. 32:32 nt: we have a lot of, like, bad credit in the kitchen because the kitchen staff at first didn't, like, wash hands properly. one food handler scratched the side of their head and then handled food. another handled raw beef then and clean bowls. there were also issues with the food. 32:43 nt: some of the food inventory--some of the milk we had--to be honest--expired exactly the day before thomas come in. thomas--with whom they're on a first- name basis--is the health inspector who she says is helping their staff understand the rules. 40:41 nt: they used to work in a lot of kitchens, so they just
8:46 am
rule, so that's why i told them, because health inspection here and health department here really cares about, you know, like, the health of customers so that's why we cannot violate it. they were preparing food in a sink next to dirty dishes. using a rusty cleaver. and keeping a container of cut leafy greens next to their hot water heater. 34:34 nt: fermented cabbage, yeah. darcy: why would it be stored in an electrical room? nt: i think the reason why they store it in the electrical room is because that room is way hotter. they need the heat to speed up the pickling process, but the that's simply not sanitary. inspectors also found bean sprouts labeled "wash before use" were not being washed at all, but taken directly from the bag to serve to customers. and in addition to dirty floors... 36:43 darcy: there was pink slime in the ice machine. there was brown slime on the citrus juicers. you don't want slime in your kitchen. nt: we... the ice machine is right here. we clean it like two months ago. which is clearly not enough. also, the spice shelf was greasy and there was hair on a
8:47 am
refrigerator. 33:09 d: why would someone's hair be in the refrigerator? nt: hair on the shelf? d: yeah, that was one of the violations. you know everybody freaks out about hair in their food. there was hair in the fridge. nt: to be honest, at that moment i wasn't here, so i didn't see, but they told me. visibly dirty wiping cloths were sitting on prep surfaces. one was stored on top of lettuce. and equipment held together with tape was not cleanable. ngoc tran says they're working to break the staff's bad habits. 40:57 nt: you say it's you contaminate the food for the customer? so that's why we have a long meeting with them for like the whole day after that. d: sounds like you're taking it very seriously. nt: i have to! i don't want to have another c grade, to be honest, so that's why we have to do our best to earn the a re-inspection later this week. darcy spears, 13 action news. we're following a lot of big stories today -- we'll be back with a recap and a final check

? ? shawn tempesta: welcome to the morning blend extra. i'm shawn tempesta. so does your home need major repair? do you need to sell quic for cash? our next guest, lathe lavada, who's a real estate expert, investor and real estate broker for first prime realty group, is here to show us how he can buy your home for cash in a snap. here with more, lathe lavada. lathe, great having you, my friend. lathe lavada: thank you. shawn: so what types of homes are you buying, and what sellers are you buying from? >> i generally buy homes that are unwanted from sellers who need to sell quickly. generally, these homes need massive repairs and the seller can't complete them. shawn: so these aren't the "i just want to get a quick sale
8:55 am
got a lot of work to do here. let's just get out of it. lathe: exactly, a cash buyer needs to come in and purchase those homes. shawn: so at what point -- like what kind of sellers are you seeing? what situations are they finding themselves in? lathe: typically, the seller is facing some sort of hardship such as a job loss, a relocation, maybe they own an unwanted rental property, or maybe they've inherited a home from a family member who's passed away recently, and they just need to get rid of the property and move on quickly. shawn: absolutel i know with inspections and stuff like that, a lot of typical home-buying situations when there's a lot of repairs to be done, they won't even give you funding if you don't do the repairs before it closes escrow. you don't have to worry about that. you just come in as a cash buyer. lathe: right. many home owners don't want to buy these homes, and they can't buy these homes because like you said, the mortgage, it's impossible to get or very challenging to get. a lot of folks don't know if they have a bare floor, they can't close on a loan.
8:56 am
lathe: so there are certain things that need to be done and certain improvements that need to be done to the property sometimes that the seller just can't afford, where a cash purchase like myself is the only one that'll work for that particular property. shawn: so then you get the home, what do you do with these properties? lathe: i put them back on the market. i either keep them as rentals in my long term rental portfolio, or i'll put them back on the market for resale and sell them to loan buyers, and i like to make every situation a win win, so when these home buyers come to buy the property, they're getting a rehabbed property at the market value. shawn: absolutely. does the seller have to end up spending money on a real estate commission or no? lathe: there actually is no real estate commissions on the homes that i buy, and i also pay all of the seller's ordinary closing costs at close of escrow as well, and there's no costly fix-ups like we said, or repairs for the seller. this is an "as is" sale, so once i buy the home, the transaction is complete. there's no going back to the seller for anything, and i've
8:57 am
help with trash outs afterwards, and i just simply tell them, take whatever you need from the property, leave the rest and i'll handle it, so it makes it a very easy, nice, smooth transition for them. shawn: you rent the big dumpster. you just leave it, we'll take care of it. that's fantastic. uh, the typical home sale, you go through the normal mls deal, that could take 60, 90, 120 days or more. how quickly are you able to close on these properties? lathe: you know, i've closed properties in under three days before. shawn: wow! lathe: you know, every situation is different, every seller is different, so it's based on the seller's time frame and their situation and not mine, so we can accommodate whether it's fast or slow. i always say i want to buy your property, but i don't have to buy your property, so whenever you're ready is when we'll close on that transaction. shawn: now how do people know if this is the right option for them, how do they get in contact? lathe: you know the easiest way is to call my office for a 24-hour no-obligation offer. i have a three-step process. basically you call in, we'll give you an evaluation on the home, we'll come to a purchase
8:58 am
and take that to closing, and we do close it through a third party title and escrow company. shawn: that's important. lathe: it is, because you want to make sure the funds are there and you get paid as a seller, and by taking it through that third party, the seller's are insured to get their funds at closing. i actually just had a seller who called me the other day and said, how am i assured that i'm going to get those funds, and that i've heard horror stories. shawn: you don't want a post-dated check that doesn't ever clear or anything like that. you see those signs on the side of the road that doesn't have a business name on them, it's just a phone number. you're not a f operation. lathe: no, i'm actually a real estate broker and an agent as well, so i mean i do everything just as i'd do a normal transaction, but in this case i'm buying the home as a "for sale by owner" as a cash investor, and i like doing those deals. i get to help a lot of home owners move on from their properties. shawn: quick and easy, lathe, great having you. thank you so much. lathe: thank you. shawn: all right, if you'd like to sell your home for cash to lathe lavada, call 702-476-2000. the number's right there on your screen.
