Episode Date
630: Seeing Greene: Estimating Rent, “Amplifying” Cash Flow, and DIY Investing
00:44:22

Look up “how to retire early” online and you’ll see some common prescriptions. You’ll hear investors talk about rental properties and index funds more than other options. This is for good reason since even as real estate investors there are ways we can go beyond the scope of buying rentals to amplify our wealth and set ourselves up for early retirement. This is also the exact question that one of our guests asks on this episode of Seeing Greene.

If you’ve ever wondered what you should do with your rental property profits after you’ve paid all your bills, whether or not to flip homes in 2022’s housing market, or simply how to get less nervous on the phone, then you’re in the right place. David Greene, host of The BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast, runs through a series of different Q&A style submissions from new investors, experienced investors, real estate agents, and everyone in between.

Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot!

In This Episode We Cover:

How to estimate rents on a potential income property and which room count brings in the most money

How to find an investor-friendly agent who will give you the local contacts you need

Whether to sell a rental property or keep it and cash-on-cash return vs return on equity

Live in flips and why flipping houses has gotten so much harder in 2022

Turnkey rental companies and whether or not to use one when investing from abroad

How to retire earlier by “amplifying” your rental property’s cash flow

And So Much More!

629: Brandon Turner’s 4-Step “Viral” Formula That’ll Bring You Deals TODAY
01:25:59

To real estate investors and real estate investing enthusiasts, Brandon Turner is a household name. Not only has he written one of the most successful real estate investing books ever published (The Book on Rental Property Investing), but he also pioneered the real estate podcasting, social media, and blogging space. Funny to think that only a decade or so ago, this massively successful capital raiser, business founder, and CEO was painting rental properties, just trying to quit his soul-sucking job.

So how did Brandon do this so quickly, and what’s going on in the brain (and under the beard) of one of the most successful real estate investors on the planet? Surprisingly, Brandon doesn’t have some secret formula, world-changing analogy, or crystal ball. He simply did what he said he would do—look for deals consistently, make offers whenever he could, and close so he could move on to the next. If this sounds familiar to your situation, but you’re struggling to find success, you may find that his system is a little bit different from yours.

Brandon gives valuable insight into the “machine-building” he’s doing over at Open Door Capital, how he’s successfully growing his personal brand, and why real estate investing success should never be a surprise. If you’re a new listener to the show, it won’t be long before you realize why Brandon Turner was (and still is) one of the most beloved voices for building wealth.

 In This Episode We Cover:

The four levels of entrepreneurialism and how to become the “architect” of your own life

Building a personal brand and finding confidence when creating content

The skills you need to grow a business and become the CEO

The five-point “viral formula” Brandon has used to raise millions of dollars

What it takes to be successful and how to create a machine that will find real estate deals for you

And So Much More!

628: How Being a Quitter Will Make You a Millionaire
01:13:48

Before you quit your job, you’ll need to do a few crucial things. If you haven’t done these yet, but are strongly considering leaving your job soon, Henry Washington and Rob Abasolo may advise you to wait it out a bit longer. Quitting your job is a big decision, especially if your family relies on the income that you’re bringing in. The good news is, that if you’re prepared, you can walk away making much more than you did at your W2. But, if you aren't, you could simply be taking a breather in between jobs, instead of building a life you love and ruling your schedule.

Henry and Rob both have eerily similar quitting stories. They both quit during the same month of the same year, making the same salary all while building a real estate investment portfolio in the background. While Henry is more of a multifamily investing man, Rob has taken the short-term rental route to build his wealth. Both men have left the cushy healthcare-provided and retirement-matching lifestyles to build something much bigger not only for themselves but their families and employees.

If you’ve wondered “when should I quit my job” or “is now the right time to go full-time into real estate investing?” then this episode is a prerequisite for you. Henry and Rob go over the four things you need to know BEFORE you quit, things to be aware of as a full-time entrepreneur, how to handle taxes and healthcare, and some actionable tips for when you’re finally ready to take the plunge into full-time investing.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why quitting a high-paying job is probably worth it in the long-run

Spousal approval when quitting and why it’s mandatory before you start doing your own thing

How much should you have in safety reserves when you quit

The “work-life balance” myth and what a day in the life of an entrepreneur really looks like

Changing how you invest after you say goodbye to consistent income

Mapping out potential scenarios so you know what to expect on the other side of employment

And So Much More!

627: Seeing Greene: The Real Estate Winners and Losers Of The Next Recession
00:41:43

Everyone has housing market crash predictions. Some media outlets will tell you the sky is falling, real estate is on the edge of a cliff, and the whole world is turning upside down. Meanwhile, investors who made it out alive during the great recession see an oncoming housing correction as an opportunity, not a warning sign. Ever since we saw wild home appreciation in late 2020 and beyond, everyday investors have been asking: when is our time up?

David Greene, real estate investing expert (also agent, author, and podcast host), knows that people will get hurt if an economic crash does happen. But, he also knows that investors who have kept their expenses lean, saved when they could, and taken care of their assets, will probably ride the tide just fine. In this episode of Seeing Greene, David will answer one of the most asked questions: where do we go from here? He’ll also touch on whether or not to give up earnest money in a bad deal, when to replace big systems like an HVAC that is on its last legs, how to calculate ARV, and why adjustable-rate mortgages could spell disaster in 2022.

Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot!

In This Episode We Cover:

What will happen to real estate if the US economy enters a recession

Whether or not short-term rentals and vacation rentals are at risk 

How to calculate ARV (after repair value) and get estimates without breaking the bank

The best exit strategies to have when investing in real estate

How much in emergency reserves should you have when buying a rental

Adjustable-rate mortgages vs. fixed-rate mortgages and which wins in 2022

And So Much More!

626: How “Turnkey” Rentals Can Help You Build Real Estate Riches Faster
01:00:14

Turnkey rental properties have become a fan favorite for rookie real estate investors and investors who don't have enough time to manage their rehabs and rental properties. Turnkey real estate is marketed as a way for real estate investors to buy a rehabbed property, often with tenants and management in place, leaving them with just rent checks to collect. One company, Rent To Retirement, has become one of the most popular places to find turnkey investment properties—and for a good reason.

Behind the helm is Zach Lemaster, former optometrist, and current real estate investor. After going through eight years of school, Zach was left with six figures in student loan debt and a job that required him to be on-site for the majority of his waking hours. Like most new real estate investors, Zach had hit a breaking point and realized he needed something else that could provide him income, without the time commitment.

After shelling out a large sum on a wholesaling course, Zach began using his assignment fee profits and salary from his job to buy rental properties. Every year he would buy more and more rentals, allowing him to finally scale into what he calls “turnkey commercial” (triple net) properties that give him sizable rent checks without any of the management headaches. Zach has a real estate investing path worth repeating, and he explains how he did all of it in this episode.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to use wholesaling to make extra cash to invest in real estate

The dos and don’ts of long-distance real estate investing (don’t make Zach’s mistake)

When to reinvest rental property profits so you can retire even sooner

The biggest challenges you’ll face when building a real estate portfolio 

Turnkey rentals and why they’re a great option for busy investors

The importance of a great property manager and how a bad one can ruin your deals

And So Much More!

625: Live Takes: How to Tackle the Tax Man by Buying More Real Estate
01:01:55

Every investor wants to know how to avoid taxes. Many rental property investors get into real estate for this reason alone. And it makes sense—rental property write-offs are not only common in the world of real estate investing but can be very lucrative in almost eliminating your yearly tax burden. So what happens when you feel like you’ve maxed out your real estate tax benefits? Is there a way to pump out even more tax advantages from the same property?

We’re back again with another Live Takes episode, where our hosts, David Greene and Henry Washington, do their best to answer the BiggerPockets community’s investing inquiries. Joining us are four investors each at different stages of their journeys. These investors ask about how to reduce self-employment tax, finding a mentor when you’re brand new to the investing game, what happens when partners disagree on where and what to invest in, and how to maximize depreciation on a cash-flowing property.

Do you have a question you’d love to ask David? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can jump on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot!

In This Episode We Cover:

How real estate professional status can greatly reduce your tax burden (if you qualify)

Why smart investors look at their income before buying their next property 

The most valuable thing a new investor can bring to a mentor

How to know when to pivot investing strategies and the bright side of “shiny object syndrome”

What to do when you and an investing partner can’t reach a compromise 

Building and buying depreciation so you can keep more of your cash flow

And So Much More!

624: Seeing Greene: How to Get Around High Down Payment Requirements
00:46:12

You need a 20% down payment to buy a house, right? Most people assume that the standard down payment amount, 20% down, is the acceptable average when buying a rental property or a primary residence. But this isn’t always true, even for real estate investors. Many investors will spend years saving up just a single down payment amount, only to later realize that they could have bought multiple rental properties faster if they would have done less down. So before you put a big chunk of change into your next rental, listen up.

David Greene is back with another episode of Seeing Greene where he takes a multitude of questions from new and small real estate investors. There is an answer for everyone in this episode with topics covering down payment amounts, investing in US real estate while living abroad, new real estate agent tips, how to finance ADUs (accessory dwelling units), and retiring yourself (or your parents) with real estate investing!

Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot!

In This Episode We Cover:

What type of rental property should you buy as your first real estate deal

How to dominate your market as a brand new agent and meet buyers and sellers

As a foreign investor, how can you get around the 35% down payment requirement 

How to finance an ADU to increase cash flow on your rental property

Should you invest with your family if you haven’t done a deal yet?

Buying rental properties without having to save up a 20% down payment

623: 10th Grade Dropout to 400-Unit Apartment Complexes (WITHOUT Raising Money)
01:05:56

Multifamily real estate investors almost always raise money for their deals, right? Some would call it almost impossible to try and build a huge real estate portfolio without borrowing money or partnering up to take down bigger properties. Sofia Castro, along with her husband, not only built a multifamily portfolio using their own money, but did so starting with a severe disadvantage.

Both Sofia and her husband were high school dropouts, living without much money, and practically no experience. A local entrepreneur took Sofia and her husband under his wing, teaching them both how to become leasing brokers. From there, they started building their entrepreneurial endeavor, eventually selling their business a couple of decades later for a whopping billion dollars.

With cash in hand and real estate experience under their belt, they began buying apartment complexes to flip them as condos. Once the recession hit, Sofia knew this was the wrong business to be in, so she pivoted heavily towards multifamily rental investing, specifically investing in “core deals”. Now, she has a streamlined process for finding deals, buying deals, and screening tenants. She gives some out-of-the-box, but highly useful tips on tenant screening, property management, and why “value-add” real estate isn’t all it’s chopped up to be.

In This Episode We Cover:

“Core deals” explained and why they often beat value-add properties

What are cap rates and why understanding them is crucial when buying multifamily

Condo conversions and the risk of flipping during downtimes in the economy

Tenant screening tips that will get you the best tenants who pay on time, every month

The right way to do property management and why you shouldn’t immediately outsource

How to buy in the right real estate markets, plus the metrics Sofia looks for when investing

And So Much More!

622: 7 Expert Negotiation Tactics That Will Put a Buyer/Seller/Tenant on Your Side
00:58:54

The secrets to negotiation are often simpler than you think. There’s no double-talk, bribing, or harshness necessary to get what you want. If you know what the other side wants (which you probably do already), you’ll most likely have enough to negotiate successfully. So why aren't most people winning negotiations? Well, when everyone is buying or selling to get the most they can, it’s often the people who create wins for their opponents that come out on top.

David Greene would know this. He’s one of the top real estate agents in the country and is the host of the biggest real estate podcast around (that’s us!). His new book, SKILL: A Top-Producing Agent’s Guide to Earning Unlimited Income, is more than a handbook for real estate agents. This book also details how almost anyone investing in, buying, or selling real estate can win negotiations easily.

David spends time today outlining the seven negotiation tactics he has used in the past to lock down deals for buyers, sellers, and himself. You’ll hear real-world examples of when David and co-host Rob used these tactics in their own investments plus exactly how to formulate each of these tactics so you can ultimately get what you want.

In This Episode We Cover:

Price anchoring and how adjusting a baseline can secure a quick win early in a negotiation

Staying likable, yet stern, in a negotiation so the opponents want you to win

Persuading opponents that your desired outcome is actually in their best interest 

Redefining the value you bring and showcasing it in an undeniable way 

Building a negotiation scarecrow that becomes the enemy (so you don’t!)

Reigning in FOMO when working with buyers or sellers in a hot housing market 

And So Much More!

621: Seeing Greene: Is Paying Off My Mortgage Early a Mistake?
00:43:24

Paying off your mortgage early—to some people, this sounds like a dream scenario. But to others, it could be a cash-tastrophe. We can already hear real estate investors yelling out “always use leverage”, “what about the low interest rates!?”, and “you can scale so much quicker!” Like many real estate investors, David Greene knows the power of leverage and loans to buy rental properties faster. But, it’s safe to say that for some people, paying off a property or buying a home in cash may be a much smarter move.

Welcome back to another episode of Seeing Greene where David answers questions directly from BiggerPockets listeners and viewers on YouTube. This time around, we have some seriously useful questions being answered for the new investor. These questions range from when to take out a loan and when to pay off a property, how to get started in real estate in your early twenties, how to build more cash flow as your expenses increase, how to get a HELOC on your rental property, and how to raise money for a down payment. All these questions (and more) are coming up!

Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot!

In This Episode We Cover:

Weighing the pros and cons of leverage when investing in real estate

How to start investing in real estate without a ton of money or experience 

Why it’s so difficult to get HELOCs (home equity lines of credit) on rental properties

Real estate bookkeeping and how to keep all your accounts up to date

How to finance your down payments so you can buy rental properties faster

Getting preapproved for a mortgage even if you have a 1099 income

620: Ed Mylett Foresees Huge Opportunity for “Small Investors” in 2022
01:05:17

Ed Mylett knows the housing market. He’s participated in real estate investing for decades and has become wildly successful thanks to his tenacity, relationship-building skills, and creativity when getting deals done. But, funnily enough, Ed Mylett isn’t most well known for his real estate investor prowess—he’s known for his mindset-shifting, world-changing ideas when it comes to personal development, discipline, and entrepreneurship.

In Ed’s newest book, The Power of One More, he talks about the small tweak that anyone can make to become many multiples more successful. In essence, every extra push-up, cold call, and hug to your spouse or child is the exact thing that puts you above the rest. It’s not about putting in the effort, it’s about putting in more effort than the average person would. This not only applies heavily to real estate investing but to any goal we set.

David and Rob get the opportunity to talk to Ed about his book as well as his sentiment towards today’s housing market and what deals he’s doing in the background. You may be surprised to hear it, but Ed is incredibly bullish on real estate investing for a few good reasons. He gives a simple yet incredibly practical explanation for why this year is surprisingly the best time to get into real estate investing in a long time.

In This Episode We Cover:

How the power of “one more” can change everything about your life 

Why committing to your standards is arguably more important than goal setting 

How collective psychology is driving the market to new places (and how to escape its grasp!)

Why investors must start “evaluating their income streams” instead of just their properties

The “most crazy deal” Ed has ever done and why it’ll be a first of its kind

Building the confidence you need to accomplish your dreams and create a life you love

And So Much More!

619: BiggerNews June: Why "DIY Landlords" Will Win in a Recession
01:01:45

What do DIY landlording and inflation have to do with each other? Surprisingly, much more than you would think. As the year progresses and the housing market stays hot, more real estate investors are having trouble finding cash-flowing deals. At the same time, the tenants in those properties are seeing the price of their gas, groceries, and rent shoot up. Are tenants going to be left with enough money to pay rent every month? And if not, what will everyday landlords do to keep their properties?

These questions are best left to someone who not only has experience owning and managing rental properties but helping others do the same. Laurence Jankelow, co-founder of Avail, one of the leading property management software picks, is here to talk about the future of the DIY landlord, especially in 2022. Laurence has seen the trends on who’s increasing rent, who’s not, and how many cash-flowing deals are on the table. 

Laurence, David, and Dave all take time to debate what the next year will look like for landlords and renters alike. If there is a recession around the corner, how can investors keep themselves in a strong position? What is the first expense new landlords should cut if their cash flow starts to dwindle? And what real estate trends are we seeing in today’s market that you can get ahead of? All these questions (and more) are answered in this month’s BiggerNews episode! 

In This Episode We Cover:

Are we heading towards a recession, and if so, how do we prepare?

How software like Avail has made “DIY Landlording” the standard for new investors 

The biggest challenges investors will face in 2022 and how to combat them

How would a recession affect the housing market (even as demand is high)

The best money-saving tips for DIY landlords and real estate investors 

Inflation’s effect on asset prices and pivoting in your investing strategy

618: Seeing Greene: Is My Property Manager Skimming Off the Top?
00:43:38

617: Why Every Great Investor Should Ask, “What Pisses Me Off?”
01:02:51

Single-family rentals are where most real estate investors start. In one way or another, a new investor realizes that there is more to life than just their job. They save up, get educated, and buy their first rental property. Those who do well repeat the process, slowly growing their portfolio to double-digit numbers. But, at a certain point, they realize they can’t go any further with the system they’ve set up for themselves. What should they do?

Rich Fettke, co-founder of Real Wealth, and author of The Wise Investor, fell into real estate accidentally. Over the years he’s had to fine-tune his system, scale his team, and learn how to become not only a successful investor but a successful leader. Now, he runs one of the premier real estate investing websites on the internet, manages three syndications per year, and still individually invests in rental properties.

Thanks to his track record of more than two decades, he knows what does and doesn’t work when trying to scale your real estate portfolio. Most importantly, Rich knows who to hire onto your team so you can continue to build wealth, without having to do all the work yourself.

In This Episode We Cover:

Where new investors should look to purchase their first investment property 

How to scale from single-family rental properties to syndication deals

Why most investors “trap” themselves without a scalable team

Turning challenges into adventure and shutting down the “inner gremlin”

Asking yourself, “what pisses me off?” when defining your company’s core values

616: Making Money in The Metaverse and The Future Of Digital Real Estate
01:21:48

If you’ve heard of digital real estate, there’s a good chance you’ve watched one of Ryan Pineda’s videos. Ryan is a leading figure in the world of real estate investing not only in the Las Vegas, Nevada area but throughout the interwebs. He got started flipping homes and eventually scaled his business up to 100 flips per year! Since then he’s branched off into multiple different real estate-related business ventures, but his newest one may be the most revolutionary.

During the lockdowns of 2020, Ryan began to research blockchain, cryptocurrency, and decentralized finance. He saw the way that the world was moving and realized it would only be a short amount of time until real estate transactions were regularly done on the blockchain. This dip into DeFi piqued his interest, so he began researching, investing, and putting more of his time into virtual and digital real estate research.

Ryan makes a strong case as to why most real estate services will move over to a blockchain model, and those that don’t will be left in the dust. Most of what Ryan preaches isn’t just speculation—it’s happening right now in the real world. If you want to get ahead of the curve, or just finally understand what an NFT is, Ryan is the guy to listen to.

In This Episode We Cover:

Starting businesses that help scale and optimize your rental property portfolio

How blockchain could end the title company industry and what investors need to know

Raising private capital and selling properties with decentralized finance 

NFTs and using them to split shares/ownership in a real estate syndication 

Combining digital and physical real estate investments for maximum diversification 

What a blockchain beginner can do to get their start in the virtual investing world

615: Seeing Greene: Lucrative Lot Splits & Lowering Your Liability as a Landlord
00:40:52

Rental properties come in all shapes and sizes. You may be investing in short-term rentals, long-term rentals, glamping sites, or, maybe you’re trying to help someone else buy a rental property. Regardless of where you choose to hang your hat on the real estate investing spectrum, David Greene probably has a golden nugget of advice for your next purchase, sale, or client. 

In this week’s episode of Seeing Greene, David takes questions from investors, agents, wholesalers, and more to help answer some of the most common real estate inquiries. You’ll hear topics such as: whether or not a special use permit will increase property value, when to sell and when to refi a rental property, whether or not each separate short-term rental needs its own LLC, and why David stopped looking for under-market properties and started looking at something else entirely. 

Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot! 

In This Episode We Cover

When to hold a property at a great interest rate and when to sell or refi

What it means to “ethically wholesale” and getting deals while helping a seller

Lot splitting and the implications it could have on your taxes, insurance, and equity 

How to succeed in a new market as a real estate agent and dropping “hooks” whenever you can

When to put your property in an LLC and whether or not each rental requires its own

Whether or not landlords are making the housing market unaffordable for average homebuyers

614: The Cash-Flow Boosting Businesses that Savvy Real Estate Investors Own
01:18:03

Knowing how to buy a business is a lot like knowing how to buy a rental property. First, you’ll need to know the price of the asset, then the cash flow, followed by expenses, and finally the structure. Because buying real estate is perceived as “simpler” than buying a business, most investors decide to go the real estate route—but they could be missing out. Codie Sanchez saw this opportunity when she was working in venture capital and decided to try out the business buying route herself, just on a smaller scale.

Codie can be perceived as your classic “value-add” investor, which much of the real estate investing community can relate to. She finds a business that has a strong foundation but lacks the tech or marketing to grow faster or increase its profits. When a business has a strong underlying value, just like a rental property, it’s easier than most people think to “renovate” it into something that will sell for far higher.

Codie stresses that buying businesses isn’t so different from buying real estate. She also categorizes which businesses real estate investors should buy if they’re looking to maximize their cash flow and minimize their expenses. With some help from Codie, you could be relying on much more than just rent checks soon! 

In This Episode We Cover

What a “value-add business” looks like and how to find undervalued businesses 

Evaluating and analyzing a business purchase and which key metrics to calculate before making an offer

Buying off-market businesses and why most business owners never consider selling (until you ask)

The three questions every investor MUST ask before buying a business 

Buying instead of building and how trying to build a business can cost you much more than just money

Becoming the business owner, not the operator, and outsourcing everything you can

613: 6 Bite-Sized Steps to Buying Your First Rental Property
01:02:19

Buying an investment property is a lot like exercising. At first, you don’t know any of the verbiage, then you start learning the tools, and finally, after some repetition (and help from those around you), you can become a real estate (or jiu-jitsu/weight lifting/yoga) expert! Think of David Greene and Rob Abasolo as your spotters for today’s deep dive into buying a rental property. Their advice will help you lift the weight, even if you feel uneasy at times!

David and Rob, unsurprisingly, started out like everyone else in the real estate investing space. They had no deals, no experience, and not a lot of money. But, over the past decade, both have become experts in their specific investing niches—through trial and a lot of error. Now, they bring you more than a decade worth of combined experience so you can stop hesitating and start taking action.

If 2022 is the year for you to start building wealth and pave your path to financial freedom, then this is THE episode to listen to. David and Rob discuss the five most common rookie real estate mistakes and six bite-sized steps that will allow you, no matter your experience, to buy your first, or next, real estate deal. They’ll also give a full walkthrough on how to analyze a real estate deal, plus a special bonus that will allow you to hyper-accelerate your growth in the real estate investing world!

In This Episode We Cover

The two biggest hurdles that stop people from ever investing in real estate

The wealth-building “pillars” that all investors must know before they start investing 

Five common mistakes that almost every real estate rookie will face

Why new investors should “commit” before they start educating themselves

612: Seeing Greene: Is a Headache Seller Worth Losing a Deal Over?
00:38:24

Cash flow and appreciation are at opposite ends of the investing spectrum. One will fuel your current lifestyle while the other will slowly, silently build your long-term wealth. The cash flow vs. appreciation debate has gotten even stronger this year as home prices continue to rise and cash flow prospects dwindle in formerly stable markets. Is there a way to still get the benefits of long-term growth while also taking home a sizeable rent check?

If there’s one man to ask, it’s your host, David Greene, who’s joining us for another episode of Seeing Greene. David knows a thing or two about buying for different purposes, in different market conditions, with different exit strategies. He’s not only asked about how to do this on today’s episode, he’s also asked questions like who should be on the mortgage when buying a rental with a partner, whether to sell or refi a rental, what to do when your DTI (debt-to-income) ratio is too high, dealing with difficult sellers, and how to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. 

Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot! 

In This Episode We Cover

How to split title and mortgage costs when investing with a spouse or partner 

Whether to focus on one market or several markets with different benefits in each

When to sell or refi a rental property (especially if interest rates are rising) 

How to purchase your next primary residence AFTER you’ve quit your W2 for real estate

611: Using a "Miserable" Job to Fuel a Fast-Growing Flipping Portfolio
00:56:55

House flipping is a very potent form of investing. After just one fix and flip, many investors find themselves hooked, leaving their stable jobs for the profit (and rush) or finishing another flip. This happened quickly to Jason Pritchard, flipper and rental property investor in central California. Jason was working at a sales job he hated and after watching one of the many famous HGTV flipping shows, thought, “Hey, I could do that!”

He gave it a try, using his life savings and retirement funds available to him. It was a success, so he decided to scale up. One flip grew to a few, and now, Jason's team does over seventy-five flips and wholesale deals per year! This incredible volume didn’t happen overnight—it took Jason seven years to go from W2 worker to one of the best flippers in the state! And it’s not just flipping Jason is after. He’s been able to grow a massive rental property portfolio, some eighty-three units, at the same time!

You’re probably wondering how Jason did this so fast. Worry not, as he details every step from how he finds leads, builds a team, pays the taxman, and even compensates employees. If you’re trying to get your foot into the flipping door, Jason’s story should inspire you to do almost exactly what he did. 

In This Episode We Cover

Using the skills from your job and translating them to make real estate riches 

Building a business and the most important step most flippers/wholesalers skip

Funding your flips and why paying taxes might be a good thing when it comes to financing

How to find employees that will grow with your business, even if you feel like you “can’t” hire just yet

Private money lenders and using them to scale your business even bigger

610: Live Takes: The 5,000 Mile Away BRRRR (REALLY Long-Distance Investing)
01:18:37

Building a house vs. buying a house—which makes more sense for today’s investor? With home prices rising faster than many of us have ever seen before, more and more real estate investors are asking whether or not building their rentals is a smarter idea. And who can blame them?

609: Seeing Greene: Gift Funds, Crash Indicators, and Problems with Partnerships
00:53:51

Why can’t I use gift funds on my down payment? What are the common housing market crash indicators that real estate investors should look out for? And why does David only invest with the short-term rental king, Rob Abasolo? If you’re joining us today for this episode of Seeing Greene, you’ll hear answers to all these questions and more!

David takes some time out of his day to sit down and answer arguably the most hard-hitting, specific questions we’ve had to date on an episode of Seeing Greene. These questions include how to find synergy between your career and your investing goals, how to not cross the line when working with multiple agents, the best ways to purchase real estate with no (or low) money down, and why David rarely partners up on real estate deals. 

Some of these questions may hit home for you, as most of today’s guests are either rookie real estate investors or young professionals looking to get their start in investing.

608: The “Golden Trio” Every Real Estate Investor MUST Have to Truly Profit First
01:03:14

The Profit First system was revolutionary when introduced by Mike Michalowicz. In simple terms, Profit First allowed small business owners to take home bigger paychecks, reinvest in their business, and scale with ease, oftentimes while doing even less. The age-old adage of “do more work, make more money” was turned on its head by simple accounting practices. In reality, the business owners who were doing the most work were making the least, while business owners who truly knew their numbers worked less, made more, and had more money to invest.

After reading Profit First, David Richter knew that this same system could be applied to real estate investing. David grew a rental portfolio himself by learning from a local mentor. This mentor had a growing team, a scaling business, but was making less and less with every deal done. As David investigated more real estate investors’ businesses, he found that this wasn’t an isolated case. Most investors were making low wages, working far more than at the jobs they had quit, and had inflated businesses, to say the least.

With some simple accounting practices, which David describes in this episode, real estate investors can turn their business into Profit First powerhouses using very simple steps. If you’ve been feeling burnout from a barrage of deals, but aren’t seeing the profit you’ve worked so hard for, you’ll want to pick up David’s new book, Profit First for Real Estate Investing!

In This Episode We Cover

The Profit First formula and why most real estate investors calculate profit all wrong

The biggest mistake that real estate rookies make when starting their businesses 

Why more deals doesn’t automatically equal more money in real estate

The rockstar team member that can make or break your business

The “golden trio” of accounts that every investor should have set up

Redefining the pay yourself first method of making money 

And So Much More!

607: Multifamily Q&A: How to Start, Scale, and Succeed in Apartment Investing
01:18:58

Is multifamily real estate investing as complicated as investors make it out to be? If you’re Andrew Cushman of Vantage Point Acquisitions, you’d probably argue that although multifamily has a bit more complexity than single-family rentals, it’s still, by all means, profitable for the everyday investor.

In the early 2000s, Andrew didn’t know anything about pro formas, apartment underwriting, or the best type of mulch to use on large-scale landscaping. Now, more than a decade later, Andrew has been able to lead his team in acquiring, syndicating, and repositioning over 2,500 multifamily units. He’s here with David Greene to answer live questions surrounding anything and everything related to multifamily investing. He gives stellar takes on the current state of the market, how rising interest rates will affect multifamily investing over the next few years, and the best way to increase your ROI (return on investment) on a multifamily acquisition.

You don’t need to be a large-scale apartment investor to take away some golden nuggets from this episode. Even if you’ve never thought of investing in multifamily, Andrew frames multifamily in a way that’ll have you wondering, “could I buy that apartment down the street?” 

In This Episode We Cover

The five most important factors to understand when looking at a multifamily deal 

Multifamily debt and equity, plus how they dramatically differ from single family rentals

How to use pro forma calculations when underwriting a deal and protecting yourself from overinflated profit numbers

Whether or not today’s rising interest rates will cause a sell-off of multifamily properties

The easiest improvements that will dramatically boost your ROI on a multifamily property

What rookie investors get wrong about finding good deals in today’s market 

And So Much More!

605: More Problems, More Money & Why Investors Should Search for Fresh Headaches
01:07:55

How many rental units do you want? Depending on who you ask, the number of rental properties can differ dramatically. A young investor may be looking to scale their portfolio quickly, eyeing ten, fifteen, or even one-hundred units. But, for a veteran real estate investor, who may already have a three or four-figure portfolio, the optimal rental unit count could be none at all—they may purely want passive income.

Christian Osgood knows this all too well, and it’s how he’s grown a seventy-one-unit portfolio in such a short amount of time. As half of a dynamic investing duo, Christian and his partner Cody Davis know that the first place to look for a deal is within someone’s goals. Unlike most off-market deal hunters, Christian and Cody don’t blatantly ask a seller if they’re willing to part ways with their property. They do something much different and a bit unorthodox. 

Christian and Cody have grown a massive multifamily portfolio in an impressive amount of time. Christian walks through the reasons why this partnership works, how they divvy up their roles, and why new investors should learn to love new problems, not cower in fear over potential pit-stops on their wealth-building journey. 

In This Episode We Cover

The “fish hauling and shipbuilding” of a perfect real estate partnership 

Why entrepreneurs and investors alike should search out new problems to solve

Financing large deals using OPM (other people’s money) and raising capital the right way

How to find any off-market property owner simply by using Google Maps

The biggest mistake you can make when raising money from private investors 

Relationship marketing and how it can open you up to phenomenal real estate deals 

And So Much More!

604: BiggerNews May: What the Media Isn't Telling You About a “Housing Crash”
01:01:20

It’s a housing market crash! It’s a housing market bubble! It’s a relatively normal and stable housing market! Two of these statements might make you excited, anxious, or hopeful, while one simply makes you yawn. For years, we’ve heard numerous news outlets, forecasters, and housing authorities tell us that the next housing crash is right around the corner, only for home prices to skyrocket, interest rates to rise, and demand to stay red-hot.

If you want to know if a housing market crash is coming, Rick Sharga, Executive Vice President at ATTOM, a leading provider of nationwide property data, is the person to talk to. His entire job is based on finding and figuring out the data behind housing market movements, which he then presents to field leaders who are trying to make better buying, selling, and lending decisions.

Rick is an industry vet and was around during the mid-2000s housing market crash, the great recession, the foreclosure crisis, and everything that followed. Rick has seen the runup in housing prices over the past two years and has some interesting theories as to where we’re headed next. Whether you think we’re in for smooth sailing or on the cusp of another crash, Rick’s predictions may surprise you. 

In This Episode We Cover:

Why competition has recently fallen and whether or not this is permanent for the housing market 

The difference between 2022’s housing market and the 2007/2008 housing market

Whether or not raising interest rates has affected hot housing markets

If we’re entering bubble territory and how to tell the real estate market is going south

Which real estate markets are primed for a correction in 2023 (and beyond)

How to get ahead of the foreclosure auctions in a “high equity” housing market

603: Seeing Greene: Hold or Sell, Maxing Out on Mortgages, and Investor FOMO
00:57:36

The ROI (return on investment) of a rental property is arguably one of the most calculated metrics when deciding whether or not to invest. Even veteran landlords tend to look at ROI as the sole metric that decides whether or not something is a “deal”. But, in the 2022 housing market, more and more landlords are seeing a massive boost in equity, and new investors are finding cash flow harder and harder to find. Has ROI kept its relevance?

Welcome back to another episode of Seeing Greene, where expert investor, agent, author, and real estate investor, David Greene, takes time to answer the BiggerPockets community’s most top-of-mind questions. In this episode, we touch on topics such as how to scale your portfolio on limited funds, whether or not to invest in tenant-friendly states, long-distance house hacking, and the foolproof way to decide whether to hold or sell in 2022.

Critiquing the “only cash flow” argument and what other important metric to pay attention to

Holding vs. selling your rental properties in 2022 (and how to decide which path to choose)

602: Why The “Right Way” to Buy Rentals is Wrong
01:17:49

If you want to invest in real estate, you’re probably taking a safe, slow approach to building a rental property portfolio. As a real estate rookie, people tell you that the safest way to invest is to get good at one thing while keeping a distance from doing deals outside your comfort zone. While this type of advice isn’t wrong for everyone, it may miss the mark for some.

Investors like Marjorie Patton have found ways to dramatically diversify themselves in the world of real estate, without their losing shirts. Marjorie is the head of sales for a financial technology firm by day and a real estate investor, house hacker, flipper, and private money lender by night. With some rather unexpected renovation costs on her first property (and with no safety reserve), Marjorie was forced to learn real estate investing on the fly.

Fast forward to today, Marjorie has a seven-door portfolio in the expensive Denver, Colorado area. She’s grown quickly and has seen healthy profits, but has no need to quit her W2. Instead, she’s going to creatively parlay any deal that comes across her desk so she can build wealth while continuing to work somewhere she loves.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why diversifying in real estate isn’t such a bad idea, plus how to prepare to do different deals

Using the concepts you know in everyday life to build a real estate portfolio 

The benefits of being “scared” when doing deals and building confidence through mistakes

When the right time to quit your W2 is and why you don’t have to succumb to the “financial freedom” pressures

Flipping homes, lending private money, and investing in deals with partners

House hacking an expensive property while keeping your cost of living low

And So Much More!

601: Why Hitting Your “Goals” Isn’t Enough & Where 95% of Investors Unknowingly Fail
01:06:38

What makes a millionaire mindset? Everyone knows what it takes to become successful: hard work, grit, tenacity, and (usually) some form of intelligence. But with so many people (real estate investors specifically) working hard, day in and day out, why aren’t we seeing a plethora of unbelievably successful individuals? It turns out, the problem isn’t within the system of building wealth, but the individual.

Jason Drees, mindset coach and author of Do the Impossible, has seen numerous individuals come to him confused, doubtful, and wanting to do more. Within a matter of years or even months, these individuals poised on success attain things that would take most people many lifetimes. So what’s the difference between a massively successful investor and a moderately successful one?

In today’s show, Jason breaks down the alchemy behind building a business, a life you love, and massive wealth. He even takes a break to coach David and Rob on their future business plans, uncovering some roadblocks and new paths that they never even knew existed. If you’ve been stuck in analysis paralysis, or simply have a goal to get to fast, this is the episode to not only listen to but take notes and review so you can grow as well.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why 95% of real estate investors aren’t aiming high enough (and how it’s hurting them)

Evolving your mindset after hitting a goal, no matter how small

Hitting unknown goals and looking for accomplishments that excite you

Using your emotion to navigate success and listening to your internal guidance

Walking the path to greatness instead of settling for success

How to “Frame” your goals, plus a live example with David and Rob

599: The Investing “Cheat Code” of Opportunity Zone Rentals
01:06:26

Opportunity zone investing hasn’t always been around for real estate investors to take advantage of. But as the government began upping the incentives around this type of real estate investing, more tax-savvy investors started to pay attention. You may have heard of opportunity zones before, but you probably don’t know how much of a heavy hitter they are in the realm of tax reduction.

Someone who does know about opportunity zone investing is King Malaki Sims—CPA and avid real estate investor. He’s been buying and building homes in opportunity zones for years and makes the case that this type of investing truly is the best real estate “cheat code” out there. Through his simple strategy, Malaki has been able to not only defer taxes but in some cases, eliminate them entirely, just through simple, smart real estate investing.

Malaki shares how even a novice real estate investor can find, fund, finish, and furnish an opportunity zone rental property all while keeping Uncle Sam away from their hard-earned profits. If you want to build wealth without having to worry about 1031-ing your properties, Malaki is the man to listen to.

In This Episode We Cover:

Opportunity zones explained and how new investors can start investing in them

Where to find opportunity zones in your local area (no matter where you live!)

Funding opportunity zone investments with little to no money down 

The biggest opportunity zone myths that scare away investors far too early

Depreciation, bonus depreciation, and tax-deferral strategies you can take advantage of

How crypto, stock, and other investors can invest in real estate tax-free

598: How to "Invest on Repeat" with The BRRRR Strategy
01:32:29

The BRRRR method can be taught by no one better than David Greene, author of Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat, and adorably dubbed “Sir BRRRR” by co-host Rob Abasolo. While David may be a master of BRRRR budgets, schedules, and rehabs, Rob isn’t as familiar with doing full-on buy, rehab, rent, refinance, and repeat rentals. To not only help out Rob but the BiggerPockets audience as a whole, David does a full walkthrough on his latest BRRRR.

This hillside property situated in David’s native San Francisco Bay Area has huge potential to become a cash-flowing, equity-increasing deal. David is turning this large home into multiple smaller units that will rent out to A-class tenants and should net him a six-figure equity boost simply by doing these cash-flow-first renovations.

David walks through exactly how to find BRRRR properties, telltale signs of a good (or bad) BRRRR deal, how to use the BiggerPockets BRRRR calculator, funding options for your BRRRR (from David's broker!), writing up a contractor scope of work (SOW), and how to build cash flow when there isn’t any to be found. You’ll also hear how David had a surprise run-in with the cops when walking this property. Action, excitement, and lots of equity are all coming up in this episode!

In This Episode We Cover:

The first signs that a property may be a great BRRRR deal 

Using the BiggerPockets BRRRR calculator to evaluate deals and raise private capital

Financing options you have when funding (and rehabbing) a BRRRR

Contractor bids and BRRRR budgets (even if you don’t have rehab experience)

Before photos and David’s exact conversion plan to turn a single property into a cash-flowing multifamily 

The huge wealth-building benefits of getting creative when finding value-add real estate

597: Seeing Greene: Should You Pay Off Debt or Invest in Real Estate?
00:52:50

Should you pay off debt or invest in real estateWhether you’re young or old, rich or poor, in consumer debt or student debt, this is a question that almost everyone has. With inflation hitting decade-long heights, debt seems to be worth less and less every day. But, the other side to this coin is that asset prices, including real estate, are going up.

596: The 3 Ways to Find Profitable Properties that Big Investors Won’t Touch w/Amanda Cruise
00:52:24

Mobile home park investing wasn’t very attractive until a few years ago. Thanks to big names in the mobile home park space (like BiggerPockets’ own Brandon Turner), the mobile home investing game has become one of the hottest commodities in the world of real estate investing. But it must take a huge jump to go from investing in single-family rentals to double-digit-unit parks, right?

Today’s guest, Amanda Cruise, is here to tell you that bigger doesn’t always mean more challenging. She actually got out of single-family rental investing due to the non-stop headaches of dealing with contractors, property managers, and tenant maintenance problems. She started doing “Lonnie Deals” where she would seller-finance mobile homes to local buyers. Soon, after enough success, she moved on to tackling entire mobile home parks!

But how did Amanda beat out the competition when the mobile home park space is so hot? Thankfully, Amanda shares her three top tips on getting around institutional investors so you can purchase cash-flowing mobile home parks, without the headaches of syndicating or raising vast amounts of capital.

In This Episode We Cover:

“Lonnie Deals” and seller financing mobile homes for profit

Why changing title on a mobile home is far easier than on a traditional home

Finding motivated sellers and how to slide under the radar of institutional investors

Scaling your team and the “must-have” roles when buying mobile home parks

The not-so-secret way to get a list of mobile home park owners in your area

The true “value-add” opportunities to look for in a mobile home park

And So Much More!

595: How to “Layer” Legal Protection So Lawsuits Won’t Touch Your Wealth w/Brian T. Bradley, Esq.
01:07:35

Most investors assume LLCs for rental properties are the way to go in terms of asset protection. From a novice’s point of view, LLCs seem to provide everything you would need?—anonymity, simple tax filing statuses, and legal protection. But, an LLC in reality isn’t as airtight as most real estate investors think. And the worst time to learn about the limitations of an LLC is during a lawsuit, where your wealth (and sanity) is at risk.

To stop you from guessing when it comes to asset protection, we’ve brought on our go-to expert and heavy hitter asset protection lawyer, Brian T. Bradley, Esq. Not only is Brian well versed in the realm of asset protection, but he’s also helped numerous clients protect their real estate wealth, making him the perfect person to ask about LLCs, limited partnerships, trusts, and more.

Brian walks through the different types of legal “layering” that real estate investors can set up to protect themselves from lawsuits and angry creditors. He defines exactly how each type of real estate investor should set up their assets as their net worth expands, and what to do BEFORE you get served with a lawsuit. While Brian may not know your personal situation, he does speak with years of experience serving high-net-worth investor clients and can relay their mistakes (so you don’t make them too).

In This Episode We Cover:

What is asset protection and why is it crucial for real estate investors in particular

The “layers” of legal protection that real estate investors must have

What an LLC really protects you from and why it may be different than what you think

“Piercing the veil” and why most investors need to go a step beyond LLCs

Limited partnerships and trusts that give you the best asset protection

Financing hiccups when keeping your rental properties in trusts

And So Much More!

594: BiggerPockets Podcast 594: Seeing Greene: FHA Loans, Cash Flow Shrinkage, & Bidding $200k Over Asking
00:54:59

Inflation and cash flow have been fighting against each other for decades. As soon as you increase the rent on an income property, inflation comes right in to eat some of that gain. So in today’s borderline hyperinflationary environment, is cash flow still coming out on top? A better question to ask may be, what happens in five, ten, or twenty years? Will inflation completely erode your financial freedom dreams? Or will cash flow match (or beat) this destructive force.

This isn’t just a question that impacts real estate investors—it affects almost every individual working within today’s economy. In today’s episode of Seeing Greene, David goes deep into this question (and others) so you, the investors, can have a better understanding of our economy as a whole. You’ll also hear topics like whether or not you can transfer title on an FHA loan, what to do when bidding wars push prices well above market comparables, when to cosign and when to ask for a cosigner, and what every investor in their twenties should start doing today.

Heard a topic that you wanted more explanation on? Want to ask David a question you’ve never heard before? If sosubmit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot!

In This Episode We Cover:

How spending power changes the way investors calculate cash flow

Transferring title from your personal name into an LLC with an FHA loan

How to know a house is “worth it” and what to look for in a loan officer

Cosigning for a relative to house hack and staying up-to-code with owner-occupied loans

Pivoting markets from a cash flow market to an appreciation market

David’s advice to every young, aspiring real estate investor

593: The Ethical Wholesaler: Putting People Before Property Profits w/Jamil Damji
01:12:09

The words “ethical” and “wholesaling” are rarely used in the same sentence. For the most part, many real estate investors and agents look at wholesalers as deceptive, hard to read, and for the most part just looking to make a quick buck. While this may be true for many new wholesalers, it's far from the truth for Jamil Damji. If anything, Jamil wants to put an end to inexperienced, and often financially dangerous wholesaling.

You could say Jamil was made to be a wholesaler. He had hustle, cold calling skills, and the will to succeed after being rejected from medical school simply due to his age. He set up a website-building business and got the hang of cold-calling quite quickly. After overhearing a discussion about a real estate deal between his partner and his partner’s father, Jamil decided to take his sales skills and turn them into something a bit more profitable. He made a phone call to a local property owner, secured a deal for his partner, and walked away with a $47,000 assignment fee.

Now, Jamil runs one of the most respected wholesaling companies in the United States. He’s set up an “everyone wins” style of wholesaling where sellers, buyers, and intermediaries in between all get paid fair prices while incentivizing each party to do what’s best for the other. This is a brand new concept in the field of wholesaling and one that Jamil wants to see flourish throughout the industry. If you want to learn how Jamil and his team do sixty to eighty deals a month, all while building a loyal customer base, this is the place to be.

In This Episode We Cover:

How wholesaling works and why so many new investors start with it

The best types of listings to call to find motivated sellers plus where to build your buyers list

Why illegalizing (or at least licensing) wholesaling would be favorable for the industry

How wholesalers can work with agents to build each other’s businesses faster

The biggest mistake wholesalers make when trying to assign contracts to buyers

Building a “win-win” system so everyone in the transaction becomes a repeat customer

And So Much More!

592: BiggerNews April: How to Counter the Biggest Risk of 2022's Real Estate Cycle w/Doug Lodmell
01:12:58

The way the housing market moves largely depends on the real estate cycle we’re currently in. We all saw this during the 2007 subprime mortgage crisis as overleveraged homeowners saw their properties foreclosed on and later sold to investors who had cash on hand. We’re currently experiencing dramatic demand coupled with low inventory, so are we at the end of the housing market cycle, ready for a recession to knock down this house of cards?

Whether we are or aren’t close to a housing bubble bursting, smart real estate investors are protecting their wealth regardless of what is to come. This is where today’s guest, Doug Lodmell, has gleaming insight. Doug and his team have worked for decades to protect the wealth of real estate investors. This is commonly known as asset protection but can be thought of as simple risk mitigation for the new real estate investor.

Doug has been through expansion, crashes, corrections, recoveries, and everything in between and has seen what a poor asset protection strategy can do to an investor's portfolio. He drops some knowledge on today’s show around how real estate investors in 2022 can protect themselves from going through a repeat of 2008. His simple, yet undeniably valuable advice could save you not only money but years worth of work you’ve put into real estate investing.

In This Episode We Cover:

Quick takes on today’s biggest stories surrounding the housing market

The tools asset protection lawyers use to protect and disguise their clients’ wealth

Whether or not new real estate investors need LLCs when buying properties 

The biggest mistakes real estate investors make that cost them their wealth

Leveraging debt to build your portfolio vs. cash hoarding for post-crash opportunities

591: Seeing Greene: The Cash Flow Market “Mirage” That Traps New Investors
00:51:53

Cash flow markets are a hotspot for new real estate investors. Why? They’re inexpensive to get into, show great cash flow (on paper), and allow many investors to map their date of financial freedom. The downside? Cash flow markets are different in real life than they are on paper. What may look like a phenomenal rental property at first glance could turn into a tenant nightmare and cash flow hemorrhaging situation. So who should invest in these types of real estate markets?

Questions just like this (and more) are coming up in this episode of Seeing Greene. As usual, David Greene, your expert on all things real estate, is here to answer quick questions from both rookie and veteran investors. In today’s show, David touches on topics like BRRRRing vs. buying multiple properties, 2022 housing market predictionshow to raise capital for your deals, qualifying for financing without strong income, and why 2022 may be the perfect year to go into debt!

Heard a question that resonated with you? Want to hear David’s thoughts on a certain topic? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A with the man himself.

In This Episode We Cover:

The best way to invest spare cash: BRRRRing or buying multiple properties?

How David structures his deals and raises capital using debt and equity

Refinancing out of a seller-financed situation, even if you don’t qualify for conventional loans

Whether to keep, sell, or refinance a property when you have significant equity sitting in it

How to house hack (again) when you’ve already used your one FHA loan

Developing your crystal clear criteria so you can grow your portfolio faster 

And So Much More!

590: From Struggling Renter to Cash Flowing Landlord Using $0 Down Loans w/Andre Haynes
01:04:34

No money down real estate investing usually sounds too good to be true. It seems almost impractical that someone without much experience, money, or property can secure cash-flowing rentals without putting a dollar into the deal. Even more astounding, today’s guest Andre Haynes was paid a few thousand dollars to buy his first rental property. He shares his exact steps on how he did it on today’s show!

While investing in real estate with no money down can seem like an advanced concept, Andre wasn’t some cash-flowing wizard from the start. If anything, Andre’s upbringing may have brought some hurdles to the financial side of his life. He had no credit, no cash, was faced with eviction notices, and generally was falling behind financially as a parent. He had to take a hard look at his life, redefine his goals, and reevaluate his choices. From there, it was a hard, yet incredibly valuable, climb upwards.

Now, only a short time later, Andre has built a real estate portfolio worth over a million dollars. He has numerous cash-flowing assets that pay for his liabilities and has started to educate others about how they can do the same. He defines this easily repeatable process on today’s show but doesn’t gloss over the fact that the only thing stopping you from obtaining the wealth you desire, is yourself.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to invest when you come from an upbringing that lacks financial literacy 

Giving up on your “dream” so you can pursue something much greater

Andre’s 5-steps to get your life together and how you can start using them today

Practicing delayed gratification and how simple sacrifices pay off big in the long run

The zero down loan program that Andre used to build his real estate portfolio

The importance of becoming a real estate investor before you buy your first property

And So Much More!

589: 10 Actionable Steps Anyone Can Follow to Buy a Rental Property
00:46:32

Want to know how to buy a rental property? If rising home prices, rent prices, and fierce market competition have you struggling to get something under contract, your real estate saviors, David Greene and Rob Abasolo are here to help. In 2022’s hot housing market, it can seem almost impossible for new real estate investors to get their foot in the door. But, if you follow what the experts are doing, you may be able to lock up your next investment while other buyers are stuck in bidding wars.

Whether you’re wondering how to buy your first rental property or your next rental property, David and Rob have answers for you. They’ve partnered up to buy luxury short-term rental properties in sunny Arizona, all while recording the exact steps they’re taking to land a deal. If you’re already investing in real estate, some of these steps may seem familiar to you, but the gems that David and Rob drop are rarely discussed (and incredibly helpful).

So, if you’re ready to start your real estate investing journey, build wealth, rake in cash flow, and build passive income, you’re in the right place. David and Rob define their ten steps to investing success so you can spend less time analyzing deals and more time collecting rent checks.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to define your investment criteria so you can find deals that fit your needs

Working with a partner and keeping the line of communication open

Blocking off time so you (and your partners) can focus on crossing the finish line

What to look for in a real estate agent and how to communicate to them what you want

Writing your offer with multiple strategies in mind so you can beat the competition

How to not become “emotionally attached” to deals that look too good to be true

588: Seeing Greene: Climate Change, ADU Dilemmas, & Retiring with Rentals
00:48:01

Want to retire with rentals? Want more cash flow? Want to put up a lower down payment? What about building an ADU on your land? All of these questions (and more) are coming up on this episode of Seeing Greene. Unfortunately, this is the first time in BiggerPockets history that David Greene, master investor/agent, hasn’t been able to answer a question (and for good reason).

David tackles some challenging topics this episode, ranging from climate change affecting real estate values, what to do once depreciation runs out, and at what point should an investor take profits in the form of cash flow? While you may have heard varying opinions from other investing experts (or even other BiggerPockets hosts), David has a rather conclusive take on why you should NOT be retiring early with rental properties, but you should do something much greater instead.

If you heard a question that resonated with you or you’d like David to go more into detail on a certain topic, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Or, follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A with the man himself!

In This Episode We Cover:

How climate change will and won’t affect buying patterns for real estate investors 

Whether or not to trade a higher down payment for more cash flow or vice versa

Where to find real estate meetups to network with other investors

When the right time to pull out cash flow from your rental property is

How to maximize tax benefits after your property’s depreciation runs out

Building an ADU vs. buying another rental property with the cash

587: Full-Time Flipping (Out-of-State!) at 24 by Doing What Most Don’t Know w/Dominique Gunderson
01:06:37

Forty real estate deals is a lot, especially for an experienced investor. How many people do you know that have done forty flips, wholesale deals, or own over forty rentals? Odds are, probably not many. So how does a nineteen-year-old do that many deals in only a year? Even better, how do they then take that experience and build a successful flipping business thousands of miles away from where they live? The answer might surprise you.

Dominique Gunderson is an anomaly in the best of ways. At fifteen years old she became privy to short sales, then at age seventeen, she left high school to start wholesaling full-time. Now, at age twenty-four, she runs a full-time flipping business based in New Orleans while she resides in her home state of California. She’s managing this entire out-of-state real estate investing venture strictly through her phone, laptop, and conversations with her contractors. Impressive, right?

But this level of speed and growth didn’t come without its tradeoffs. Dominique failed many, many times in her pursuit of passive income and real estate profits. She’s the first to admit that she wouldn’t trade a single failure for anything she has now, as they’ve been the stepping stones to her success. So if you want to stop sitting on the sidelines and start succeeding at record speed, you better prepare to fail, just like Dominique did.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to quickly screen for potential hidden gems in the multifamily space

The eight steps that lead to perfect multifamily underwriting so you can make the best offer possible

Loss to lease” and using it as a value-add opportunity that most investors miss

Getting debt quotes, insurance quotes, and accurately calculating future property taxes

Who’s opinion you need to ask for before going through on a multifamily deal

Looking for the opportunities and traps within a seller’s finances

Writing an LOI (letter of intent) and getting bigger deals under contract

And So Much More!

586: The 8 Steps That Will Stop You From Getting Burnt on Multifamily Deals w/Andrew Cushman
01:19:48

Want to know how to analyze a multifamily property? Maybe you’ve analyzed duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, or even ten-unit apartment complexes before, but what about the big deals? We’re talking about multi-million dollar multifamily investments, with hundreds of units, large debt and equity structures, and many, many small pain points only experienced investors would notice.

584: The 5 Steps That Will Bring You More Deals, Friends, and Mentors w/Jonathan Greene
01:02:44

If you’re new to investing in real estate, you may not have run your first real estate analysis yet. But as soon as you start looking at properties, you’ll become a spreadsheet wizard in no time! With so many investors counting on automatic analysis from modern, hyper-specific real estate calculators, old-school investors beg the question “do these calculators really make a difference in the deal?

Today, expert investor, home flipper, wholetailer, and almost every other real estate title in the book, Jonathan Greene, joins us to talk about what new investors are missing out on. While many investors run spreadsheets and analyses before seeing a deal, Jonathan does it the other way around. Jonathan will drive to a property, walk the property, and then after taking a look at some specific parts of the property, will run a deal analysis. He walks through the system that not only makes this efficient but worthwhile.

If you've been around the BiggerPockets Forums for some time, you’ve probably recognized Jonathan’s name (or face). He’s an active contributor, responding to forum posts almost every day and chatting with new investors every chance he gets. Jonathan has found deals, mentors, partners, and great friends thanks to online forums, like BiggerPockets. If you’re looking to get the most out of your virtual networking, Jonathan shares his five tips on extracting huge value from the collective minds of over two million real estate investors!

In This Episode We Cover:

Going beyond the spreadsheets and analyzing real estate internally (before using a calculator)

How to get the “feel” of a house when investing out-of-state

The crucial parts of a house Jonathan looks at during his first walkthrough

The five steps to being successful in an online community (or in real life too!)

Choosing your perfect out-of-state market using two simple data points

Flipping poorly designed homes into massively profitable masterpieces 

And So Much More!

583: Building Your “Passive Income Blueprint” Using the Right Real Estate Agent w/ Johnny Hoang
00:57:36

The signs of a bad real estate agent aren’t very clear if you’re a new investor. But, after trial and error and a lot of deals done, you’ll be able to weed out the basic agents from the rockstar realtors. If you’re brand new to real estate investing, there’s no need to sort through ten agents just to find out what makes the good ones great. Today, we’re giving you a shortcut as we pick the brain of one of the top real estate agents in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the country!

Johnny Hoang just began his real estate agent journey only a short two years ago, but he’s been able to close on an astounding $67M in home sales despite having such a short time in the market. Even with things as hot as they are, that’s a very impressive number from any agent, let alone a rookie! Of course, it should come as no surprise that Johnny is a student of David Greene and works with David daily.

In today’s show, David and co-host Rob Abasolo break down what it means to be a great real estate agent. They walk through different scenarios and situations with Johnny so you, the listeners, come away knowledgeable of the difference between an agent who will help you grow your portfolio and an agent who purely wants a commission check.

In This Episode We Cover:

How top agents prioritize clients and what you need to do to get to the top of the list

The investor-client “kiss of death” and how to NOT talk to an experienced agent

The seven signs of a bad agent and when to steer clear of an agent who’s all talk

Finding the perfect investor-friendly agent that will diligently hunt down deals for you

House hacking and using owner-occupied loans to slowly build your wealth

What to expect (and not expect) your real estate agent to bring to the table

And So Much More!

00:55:07

Should I invest now or wait? How do I set up my children for financial success? What do top agents do to stand out in the market? These are all questions of real estate investors, agents, and onlookers who wait to see what’s next in the 2022 housing market. With so much uncertainty around us and an environment of intense competition, it can be a struggle to know what move is the right one or whether or not to sit out of the game entirely.

Want to ask David a question? Submit your video here!

Buying your child a rental property and the logistics that go with it

What to do with a rental property that was zoned incorrectly

581: The Hidden Passive Income Source in Your Own Backyard w/That ADU Guy
00:56:15

What do you think of when we say ADU (accessory dwelling unit)? If you’re like most homeowners, you probably think of a back house, a mother-in-law suite, or a converted art studio. But what if you don’t have a home that comes with a pre-fitted accessory dwelling unit? What if you don’t want to put in the money (or time) to build one out. Are you left with any options, or are your ADU dreams dead in the dust?

If you’ve wanted to start building passive income streams through your primary residence, then we’ve got good news for you. With us today is Derek Sherrell, also known as “That ADU Guy”, precisely because he is THE person you want to talk to when it comes to accessory dwelling units on your property. Derek knows his stuff, consulting dozens of homeowners on how an ADU would fit into their property and how much passive income they could make as a result.

And it’s not just about building some other structure in your backyard. You can convert attics, basements, garages, and even portions of your house into accessory dwelling units. Not only does this allow you to save on the cost of new construction, but it also gives you another option to build wealth, pay down your mortgage, or simply profit from a rarely used portion of your home.

In This Episode We Cover:

The exact criteria homeowners should look for in potential ADU-friendly properties 

Attached vs. detached ADUs and the benefits (and cash flow difference) of both

The four main challenges when building, financing, or strategizing an ADU

What to look for in existing ADU structures, whether it’s a garage, back house, or basement

How to become an ADU expert quickly (and for free) with simple city zoning information

And So Much More!

580: BiggerNews March: How a Surge of Foreclosures Will Impact the Housing Market w/Auction.com’s Daren Blomquist
01:00:35

The word “foreclosure” is forever stained in the minds of almost every American who lived through the great recession. News stories in 2010 would talk about the slew of families that had been foreclosed on, with big banks taking back property from a significant number of former homeowners. Fast forward twelve years and many real estate investing fortunes have been made on the backs of foreclosure sales. Is this chance coming back once again in 2022?

Joined with us today for this month’s BiggerNews is the David Greene and Dave Meyer duo plus special guest, Daren Blomquist, VP of Market Economics at Auction.com. Daren knows the foreclosure market inside and out, spending his days studying and analyzing housing market data. With the newest “surge” in foreclosures, Daren is here to quell the mind of investors who are either hoping for (or dreading) another foreclosure crisis.

Back in early 2020, the US government imposed a foreclosure moratorium and a nationwide forbearance program, allowing citizens to hang on to their homes a little longer. As the economy shifts back into gear, and the moratorium ending, will we see a surge in foreclosures? Or, has price appreciation gifted so many homeowners with equity that foreclosures aren’t even on the horizon? Whatever the answer is, Daren can help you, the investor, plan for your next money-making move.

In This Episode We Cover:

Announcing who the new BiggerPockets Podcast host is!

The mass migration of homebuyers out of their local metros and into new surroundings

Zillow’s newest “SuperApp” that plans to replace realtors

How the 2010 foreclosure crisis compares to today and what would bring a new wave of foreclosures

Why foreclosures are up a whopping 97% as we head into 2022

Investing in foreclosures and how to score deals before they hit the market

And So Much More!

578: The Secret Sauce Behind Short-Term Rental Success (Part 1) w/Rob Abasolo
00:55:05

Short-term rentals have taken the world by storm. Over the past two decades, the bed and breakfast type business has fallen prey to the more scalable short-term rental model. Real estate investors quickly realized that they could capitalize on the long-term equity gain of rental properties with the cash flow of hotels in one highly-lucrative asset class. Thus, the rise of the short-term rental, VRBO, and Airbnb investor was born.

Arguably the most notable short-term rental investor in the space today is good friend of the show, Rob Abasolo. Rob is such a pioneer in the short-term rental investing area, that veteran agent, broker, and investor David Greene, has partnered up with him to collectively build their cash-flowing, equity-increasing empire together. With dozens of deals under both of their belts, Rob and David walk through the five steps that it takes to find success in the short-term rental space.

This episode is split up into two sections, with the latter coming out right after this one. In this show, Rob dives deep into finding a short-term rental market that fits your needs and goals, choosing a location that specifically benefits you as the investor, the different types of short-term rentals, and how to build a vacation rental strategy that will match your goals for financial independence. Whether you’re thinking of buying a snowy chateau or a desert domicile, Rob and David will help you put the pieces together so you can build a strong portfolio that will benefit you for decades to come.

In This Episode We Cover:

Choosing a short-term rental market and what aspects to look for

Cash flow vs. appreciation and which matters more when it comes to STR investing

The four types of short-term rental markets and which have the best chance of success

Seasonality and factoring it into your revenue and profit calculations

The risks of investing in vacation rental markets and how to scale your portfolio faster

And So Much More!

576: Short-Term Rental Roundup: Small Markets, Partnerships, & When to Go “All In” | Q&A w/Rob Abasolo
01:03:15

The short-term rental market seems to get bigger and bigger every day. This should come as no surprise, seeing that short-term rentals not only work for vacationers, traveling business people, or anyone else who wants a nice, unique place to stay. But, while the rest of the world is focusing on which mountainside chateau they’re booking for their weekend getaway, real estate investors worldwide are figuring out how they can buy, rehab, furnish, and profit from these vacation rental ventures.

With so much competition in the market, it begs the question: is the short-term rental space becoming oversaturated?And, if it is, how can investors get on the ground floor of sleepy markets that will explode in popularity over the next decade or so? Of course, with questions like these, we need our short-term rental and wave-hair-styling expert, Rob Abasolo at the side of Sir BRRRR himself, David Greene.

In this Q&A episode, David and Rob will discuss a handful of topics, mostly centered around short-term and vacation rentals. Topics like: how to mix a long-term rental and short-term rental in one property, how to market outside of the top short-term rental platforms, can you convert a regular rental into a vacation rental, and the pros and cons of real estate partnerships.

In This Episode We Cover:

Buying mixed-use properties so you can combine long and short-term rental advantages

Whether or not the short-term rental market is starting to see saturation

How to adjust cleaning fees to optimize your booking rate

Converting a long-term rental into a short-term rental (and the time it takes to do so)

What to do when you can’t find comps (comparable rents) in your area?

The pros and cons of real estate partnerships and what to do before you join forces

575: Killer Cash Flow with This “Tenant-First” Section 8 Rental Strategy w/Joe Asamoah
00:58:34

Section 8 BRRRR investing seems like a niche within a niche. To start, you have your classic BRRRR strategy (buy, rehab, rent, refinance repeat), a method that many real estate investors have used to gain vast amounts of equity in short amounts of time. Then, on top of the BRRRR, you have section 8 rentals, which many investors stray away from. Both of these investment strategies can be thought of as “advanced” rental property investing methods, but combining them can almost automatically guarantee you phenomenal rent, for years (if not decades) to come.

One investor known for his expertise in both section 8 rentals and BRRRR investing is Dr. Joe Asamoah. Regularly, Dr. Joe may be the smartest person in the room and he really shines when speaking about the often forgotten benefits of section 8 rentals. While many investors simply think of D-class houses and D-class tenants when accepting section 8 vouchers, Dr. Joe disagrees.

His theory is simple—Find C or D-class properties in B-class neighborhoods, and rent to A-class section 8 tenants. The payoff? Very long-term tenants with guaranteed rent whose lives you can benefit directly. And Dr. Joe isn't just hypothesizing about this—he’s been doing this for decades and may be why he has tenants who have stayed with him for over twenty years, paying rent every month, on time.

In This Episode We Cover:

Before and after photos of Dr. Joe’s most recent section 8 BRRRR rental

Renovation hiccups when doing large renovations/BRRRR deals

The “bedroom-to-cash-flow” ratio that makes section 8 a lucrative choice for investors

How to find the highest quality, long-term tenants in your investing area

Building multiple exit strategies out of one property for maximum cash flow and equity gain

The most common BRRRR risks and how to mitigate appraisal and tenant headaches

If a housing bubble is on the horizon, how best do real estate investors prepare for the massive hit they’re about to take? With so much money flowing throughout the economy, home prices hitting record highs, and competition staying fierce, what can the average investor do to stock up so when a housing market crash does happen, they’re ready to make big moves?

If you’re looking to invest in real estate, whether this year or within the next decade, David’s thoughts on surviving and thriving in a housing crash could make you much, much wealthier!

573: BiggerPockets Podcast 573: Rental Arbitrage, Out-of-State Investing, & Home Loans You've Never Heard Of | Q&A w/Henry Washington
01:18:08

Financial freedom is the “why” behind almost everyone getting into real estate investing—but sometimes not for the right reason. We all want more time to spend with our families, doing things we love, and having autonomy over our own lives without having to worry about making money to live. This is all well and good for investors getting a delayed start on their investing journey, but what about the young investors, the ingenuitive investors, or those who could give so much more than they get?

This is just one of the topics that your hosts David Greene and Henry Washington get into today, as they take live questions from BiggerPockets listeners without any prep, research, or outside factors coming into play. You’re getting a direct line into the mind of two of the best investors (and podcast hosts) around so you can see their struggles, landlording pains, and decisions behind their investing careers.

In this show, we especially get into topics such as: building a real estate portfolio from scratch, non-QM loans and their big benefits for investors, when to stop buying rentals and focus on paying off your portfolio, finding off-market deals, and the classic cash flow vs. appreciation debate for long term wealth. This episode features both rookie investors and investors already seeing success through real estate. If you invest in real estate (or want to), this is the place to be!

In This Episode We Cover:

Investing locally vs. investing out-of-state to capitalize on lower housing costs

Portfolio loansnon-QM loans, and other flexible financing for real estate investments

When to stop buying rentals and pay off the ones you already own

Whether or not to allow rental arbitrageurs to lease your rental properties

Cash flow vs. appreciation and how this personally impacts your growth

How to build relationships with commercial brokers so the deals come to you

And So Much More!

572: The Super Repeatable Path to Real Estate Wealth (No Experience Needed!) w/Erika Brown
00:53:55

Do you need to be rich to buy a rental property? Arguably, no. In reality, you don’t need a lot of experience, know-how, or cash on hand to buy your first income property. But, you need to at least be resourceful, take advantage of your opportunities, and have the tenacity to follow through on your goals. If you have all those qualities, you may be a great real estate investor, or maybe you’re today’s guest, Erika Brown.

Erika wasn’t raised by real estate investors. No, this was a skill she had to learn completely on her own. In fact, she learned the real estate sales skill without even knowing it! When Erika moved to a new neighborhood in the Atlanta, Georgia area, she was consistently convincing friends to buy properties around her home. She passed these leads along to a local real estate agent until she realized she was casually handing over six figures in commissions.

So, she went ahead and got her real estate license, and later turned a pocket listing into her first real estate investment. From there, she saw a profitable path laid out, all she needed was the partners, lending, and work to actualize it. Now, Erika is sitting on a sizable real estate portfolio, building purposeful and profitable businesses so she can employ members of her community and lead the wealth generation movement in her circle!

In This Episode We Cover:

When part-time agents should make the jump to full-time work (and how to do it)

Quitting the corporate lifestyle to take on more risk as a real estate investor

Cashing out retirement accounts to fund your first (or next) deal

Getting around common real estate roadblocks that lead rookie investors to fail

Having a “purpose-first” business model so you can build wealth and upgrade your community

Why every investor must “do what the wealthy do” to succeed in real estate

And So Much More!

571: Is This Deal Worth My Time? The 6 Crucial Steps to Vet a Multifamily Deal
01:12:39

Real estate underwriting isn’t a commonly used term within the residential world. If you’re used to dealing with single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, or quadplexes, you’ve probably done real estate underwriting to some degree, but you’ve called it “real estate analysis”. In both scenarios, investors are looking at what they’ll make on a deal, how much they need to invest, and what exit strategies they have.

But, in a hot housing market, like we’re in today, by the time you analyze a deal, a deal may already be gone. You need a way to quickly sort deals into the “pursue” or “dump” piles, and Andrew Cushman, expert multifamily investor, may have just the solution for you. Andrew has been on the BiggerPockets podcast before and manages over 2,600 units, so he definitely knows what he’s talking about!

Today, Andrew showcases the phase one underwriting he uses to decide quickly on deals, as well as the four levers to look at before even getting into underwriting. His system can save you hours, or even days, if you’re a full-time investor, and it helps rookie investors quickly analyze deals so they can get into the game. Now, residential owners can transition into commercial real estate with better scale and bigger profits.

In This Episode We Cover:

How Andrew scaled from zero to 2,600 units in only ten years

The basic screening process that allows you to triage your deals and waste less time

Four levers every investor should look at when analyzing a new deal

The six factors of phase one multifamily underwriting and using it to unlock “home runs” 

Developing and nurturing broker relationships so you can get off-market deals before your competition 

And So Much More!

570: Seeing Greene: Signs of a Great Agent, When to Refi, and How to Scale
01:06:14

Your rental portfolio can either be your ticket to financial freedom or a massive headache, but it’s completely up to you, the investor, to decide. Many investors who have been stacking up properties over the past few years now realize they’re sitting on a significant amount of equity. But what is the best way to use this equity without raising your stress levels in the process? Should you buy more units or focus on getting better, smaller, cash-flowing deals?

David Greene is here to help alleviate you from the decision-induced stress, as he’s been dealing with these exact types of questions personally and with many of his buyers recently. In this Seeing Greene episode, David takes answers from BiggerPockets listeners both in video and written form, discussing topics ranging from scaling your real estate portfoliooutsourcing “heavy” tasks with a virtual assistant, and whether to cash-out refinance or use a HELOC(home equity line of credit).

David also answers the age-old question of whether or not unit count matters when it comes to cash flow and long-term wealth building. You may be surprised to hear that many investors' “unit counts” don’t accurately reflect the size of their personal holdings. You’ll also get advice on how to find a great real estate agent from one of the top agents in the country!

If you’d like to ask David a question, be sure to submit yours here!

In This Episode We Cover:

How to grow your real estate portfolio in spite of fluctuating market conditions

Using virtual assistants to outsource the repeatable, “heavy” tasks on your plate

01:22:51

If you’re asking your CPA how to not pay taxes, this may be the perfect episode for you. In fact, this episode is geared towards anyone making money in real estate, and listening could save you a massive amount in taxes over your lifetime. But isn’t tax reduction only for the ultra-rich? How can the average, everyday investor who has one, two, or a dozen rentals keep more of their capital so they can invest in more deals?

Tom Wheelwright is the exact man to ask this question to. He’s so good at what he does, that he’s been advising Rich Dad Poor Dad’s Robert Kiyosaki for decades. Tom is dedicated to minimizing the tax burden that he and other investors suffer from. If you’ve read Rich Dad Poor Dad, a lot of Tom’s strategy will sound familiar, but in reality, it’s what all intelligent investors are doing.

In today’s episode, Tom walks through the biggest areas where real estate investors can cut their tax bills, how to generate losses through depreciation, building an investment system, and the five steps to eliminating income tax from your real estate deals. If you make money in real estate, no matter how, this is information you can NOT live without.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why rich investors pay fewer taxes than those who are employed or self-employed

Tax incentives vs. loopholes and why one is risky and the other is celebrated

Where investors can look to greatly reduce their taxable income 

How real estate debt gives investors far less risk in their deals

Deprecation, recapture, and how real estate gives you a leg up on income tax reduction

Whether or not you should hold a real estate investment in an LLC

And So Much More!

568: BiggerNews February: Analyst Who Predicted '07 Crash Sees "Yellow Flags" w/ Ivy Zelman
01:02:59

The housing market is an evolving beast that almost no one can accurately map. With so many investors on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to housing market crashes and corrections, it’s nice to hear the thoughts of someone who has accurately predicted past crashes. We’re honored to have Ivy Zelman from Zelman & Associates on today to discuss the modern housing market, supply chain shortages, and overbuilding problems.

Zelman accurately predicted the 2007 housing market crash and has been on the front line of analysis and forecasting when it comes to all things housing market-related. She’s seen the data firsthand and has a broad understanding of which factors specifically impact prices, demand, and overall availability. David Greene and Dave Meyer take some time to ask her the top-of-mind questions that investors and first-time homebuyers want answered.

If you’re planning on purchasing real estate in the next year or two, it may be best to get Zelman’s opinion before putting in your offer. She’s seeing multiple “yellow flags” that may signal stark changes within the housing market, either allowing you to scoop up better deals in the near future or at least mitigate loss when buying at these record-high prices.

In This Episode We Cover:

The similarities between the 2007 housing market and today’s housing market

Affordability and how it greatly impacts both buying and selling behavior

The “overbuilding problem” we’re seeing with many multifamily developers

Supply chain problems, labor shortages, and other factors impacting new construction

Who should (and should not) buy real estate over the next couple of years

And So Much More!

566: 10 Properties in 8 Months by Saying “No” More Than “Yes” w/Jason Rash
01:03:41

How many rental properties do you own? It could be one or one hundred rentals. But, whether you’re a rookie or veteran real estate investor, it’s hard to not be impressed by Jason Rash’s story. Jason has put off investing in real estate for most of his working life, focusing more on passive income streams like investing in stocks. This all changed when Jason saw tens of thousands in stock value disappear from his accounts.

He wanted something more reliable, stable, and calculated that he could control. Of course, real estate investing fits that criteria exactly. So what did Jason do? Did he go and buy one rental, wait a few years, and then try to buy another? Nope. Jason went and bought ten properties over the span of eight months. That more than one property a month within his first year of investing!

Be warned, there is a method to this madness. Jason has a tight control on his long-distance investing, having only the best agents, property managers, plumbers, electricians, and contractors on speed dial. This wasn’t a system he fell into, this was a system he intentionally built. Jason shares his six-part criteria that any new investor can use, especially when trying to minimize headaches and maximize cash flow.

In This Episode We Cover:

The huge competitive advantage of having local knowledge and a core four

Lowering your property management fee while creating a win-win for both parties

Seller credits and using them to finance house repairs and upgrades

Fighting off “shiny object syndrome” so you can stay focused on your goal

Jason’s six-step criteria to buy headache-free houses when investing from a distance

Building a scalable, repeatable, simple system for finding, funding, and closing on great deals

And So Much More!

565: How to Take the Fear Out of Investing in New (or Bigger) Deals w/Bestselling Author Kindra Hall
00:54:37

Analysis paralysis is always lurking. Even the most experienced investors feel it before they pull the trigger on a new deal, business, or strategy. It’s not to say that careful consideration of an investment isn’t a crucial requirement to success, but the mental stuttering we feel when trying to make a decision can leave us in a foggy stupor. When we feel like this, we do fewer deals, build less wealth, and live our lives half full.

Kindra Hall, bestselling author, master storyteller, and real estate investor knows this feeling all too well. She watched her husband struggle with analysis paralysis during the mass foreclosures of the great recession. Thankfully, she and her husband took the time to catch, analyze, choose, and install a better outlook, or story, for their investing future. This type of mental mechanism allowed Kindra and her husband to grow their real estate holdings and buy the beach house of their dreams.

In today’s episode, Kindra outlines the four steps every investor needs to go through to create better mental stories that will push you to the finish line, instead of keeping you in investing anxiety. If you’re still waiting to purchase your first investment property, we recommend taking this advice to heart, trying it out, and taking action!

In This Episode We Cover:

The stories we outwardly and inwardly tell ourselves that could hurt our success

How to crush hesitation so you can make the right decision faster

Shrinking limiting beliefs about what we can and can’t do

The four-step process to redesigning your story and installing a new one

How Kindra got a $1M+ beach house for well under asking price

563: W2 Retired and Traveling the World with Just 15 Units w/Sarah Weaver
01:10:15

Long-distance investing may sound like an impossible feat to achieve for many investors. What if something goes wrong in the house? What if something needs fixing? What if there are problems with tenants? As today’s guest Sarah Weaver puts it, “do nothing”, your core four can handle it all so you don’t have to stress.

Sarah knows what she’s talking about—she’s been a nomadic landlord for years now, teaching agents and investors how to grow their businesses while living their dream life. Sarah was able to close on twelve units while operating abroad and working remotely. She was buying fourplexes while hiking in New Zealand, landlording while on the beaches of Bali, and growing her businesses while enjoying everything South America had to offer.

Sarah embodies the exact type of life so many investors are looking for. The difference between most investors and Sarah? She let go of fear and kept her goals in mind, no matter what she was doing. This way, she’s been able to retire off of fifteen rental properties in less than a decade while running her own business, traveling, and really doing whatever she wants!

In This Episode We Cover:

Really long-distance investing and how your boots on the ground team make it possible

How to find an investor-friendly agent that will provide big value to your business

What agents need to know before they start working with real estate investors 

Having a crystal clear criteria and using it easily find real estate deals

Medium-term rentals that provide less risk and more rent than long-term rentals

The long-distance BRRRR and using it to invest in affordable areas

Quickly find a local, investor-friendly real estate agent who can help you find, analyze, and close your next deal using the Agent Finder

561: Establishing Your “Beachhead” to Work Less and Invest MUCH More | Q&A w/Craig Curelop
00:55:48

House hacking, renting by the room, co-living, boarding houses? These are all things that author, investor, real estate agent, and expert hacker of houses, Craig Curelop, is used to. Craig got his start in real estate investing by renting out rooms in his own home, having his roommates pay his mortgage for him, and eventually skating on to financial freedom.

Craig is joined by another familiar expert house hacker and real estate investor, David Greene, to answer questions around lending, leases, and the legality of raising private money. With so many new real estate rookies in the investing sphere, this episode is a great intro for anyone who’s looking to plan, start, or scale their next real estate investment.

Craig and David fire from the hip in this episode, answering questions live with topics ranging from scaling your business while keeping your free time, refinancing on a shared boarding house, raising private capital (equity vs. debt), what to expect when you house hack, and how to rent out your home in the snowy winter.

In This Episode We Cover:

Establishing your “beachhead” as an investor, business owner, or real estate agent

Strategizing your refinance when your home is less than conventional

How much interest to promise investors and when to raise capital 

Planning your house hack purchase and setting up your home for multiple roommates

Precautions to take when renting out your home in the winter

And So Much More!

560: Double Your Rental Income with Co-Living Cash Flow w/Sam Wegert
00:58:52

Co-living (coliving) may sound a bit scary at first to a landlord. You have a bunch of young professionals living under one roof. What if there is an argument over cleaning, what if there is a fight that breaks out, will my property be ripped to shreds? Let today’s guest, Sam Wegert, quell your fears—co-living and house hacking can rake in cash flow, with way less of a landlord headache.

Sam is no stranger to entrepreneurship and real estate investing. He bought his own martial art studio at the age of fifteen and his first rental property at nineteen years old. Now he boasts a portfolio of over twenty-two long-term rentals, ten short-term rentals, seven martial arts studios, and one online program. Even more impressive, Sam is managing over 150 different tenants throughout his thirty-two properties.

How does he do this without ripping his hair out? Well, aside from the relaxation that comes after an intense sparring match, Sam has systematized his real estate business into a cash-producing machine. He has had to build his own property management and his own policies that help keep him, and his tenants, happy. If you’re looking for your next cash cow rental investment, this could be it!

 In This Episode We Cover:

Starting a business and buying property at an impressively young age

House hacking and why every young investor should try it

Keeping the peace in a co-living house and building a bullet-proof lease 

What to look for when buying co-living properties (size, bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.)

The systems Sam uses to keep his rental property business running smoothly

Developing discipline to take on bigger, scarier challenges (and crush them!)

And So Much More!

559: 1,000 Units as a Part-Time Nurse and the System That Helped Her Get There w/Stephanie Betters
01:02:07

Real estate CRMs (customer relationship management) aren’t the most exciting things to talk about…that is until you look at the results they help build. Before building her own CRM, Stephanie Betters was struggling to grow her real estate portfolio. She had an original goal to acquire fifteen units before her children went to college, but realized that her taxing job as a nurse wouldn’t allow it. For her to hit fifteen units, she would have to scale, automate, and delegate tasks.

She did just that and overshot her goal by a significant margin. As of now, Stephanie has 1,000 rental units and is wholesaling and building another 200 deals per year. She’s doing all of this while working as a part-time nurse, which truly shows her real estate system is a well-oiled machine. But, this system wasn’t just dropped into her lap, she had to build it herself using Salesforce as a base.

If you’ve been thinking about scaling your business, no matter what stage you’re at, Stephanie has recommendations for how to do so in the best way possible. This includes systems for the novice investor/house hacker up to the streamlined syndicator and everything in between.

In This Episode We Cover:

Incorporating “real estate tech” at each stage of your investing journey

Using CRMs like salesforce to automate your entire business

Hiring, training, and leading a team of virtual assistants (foreign and domestic)

“Lead leakage” and how it could be costing you thousands every month

The three most important KPIs every investor should be tracking

Text, email, and other outreach-type automations that will save you time

And So Much More!

558: Seeing Greene: Cash Flow—The Most Overrated Metric in Real Estate?
00:57:10

Cash flow is arguably the most important metric in real estate investing…that is if you’re talking to novice investors. Expert investors, like David Greene, know that cash flow is but one of many factors to consider when buying a rental property, and it’s arguably the least important. While rookie investors focus on building their cash flow, veterans focus on building their wealth while freeing up their time.

On this week’s episode of Seeing Greene, your jiu-jitsu and real estate sensei is back to drop some wealth-building bombs so you can work less, live more, and lead a happier life. David takes questions in the form of video submissions as well as questions off of the BiggerPockets forums. The topics of these questions range from HELOC (home equity lines of credit), buying rentals without a W2, cash flow vs. appreciation, and why rent appreciation isn’t matching home appreciation.

Want to ask David a question? Send in your video submission here!

In This Episode We Cover:

When to use HELOCshard money loans, or conventional loans to buy rentals

How to find financing for a rental when you don’t have W2 income

What sellers look for when deciding on which offer to take

How to lower your DTI (debt-to-income) ratio so you can qualify for more loans

Whether or not to focus on cash flow or appreciation for long-term wealth building

Why rent growth cannot and will not match home price appreciation

And So Much More!

557: Raising Millions of Dollars (and 8 Kids!) After Dumping Her Day Job w/ Esther Reizes-Lowenbein
01:00:29

Raising capital for real estate investing is a far more useful skill than most people realize. If you have a strong knack for networking and the social skills to connect with many different individuals, you could be the exact piece that almost every investor is looking for. As more investors get into the hot commercial real estate market, they’ll need private capital to fund their deals. So who better than you to connect the investor and the deal finder for a piece of the cash flow pie?

If you’re worried about the time commitment of raising capital, let us introduce you to Esther Reizes-Lowenbein, who not only worked as a broker, capital raiser, and investor but also is raising her eight children while doing it. Fortunately for Esther, raising capital is something she loves to do, as she has a strong communication background with her former training in speech pathology.

If you’re getting the itch to start investing in bigger deals, but don’t know how to get started, Esther can help. She walks through the different roles in commercial real estate, whether to invest, syndicate, or stick with small deals, and how to become a capital raiser yourself (the right, legal way).

In This Episode We Cover:

General partners, limited partners, and every commercial real estate role in between

Whether to invest, syndicate, or continue to buy small deals yourself

How to legally (and ethically) become a great capital raiser

The biggest mistakes commercial brokers make early into their career

The hottest property types and which you should look into for 2022

The Achilles heel of most short-term rental deals 

And So Much More!

556: The Most Feared BRRRR Step (and How to Get Over It) | Coaching Calls
00:46:37

If you’re rehabbing a rental, performing a BRRRR, building an ADU, or even getting into new construction, now is a challenging time for you. With supply chain problems, limited materials, and all-time high housing prices, contractors are in low supply. Even when you do schedule a project, the likelihood of your contractors showing up on time can be slim at best.

David Greene is back with another round of coaching calls to give his take on this current contractor crisis, as well as answer questions on the BRRRR strategy, the turnkey rental method, going over budget, and how to stay focused when investing. If you’ve struggled at all with anything related to calculating rehab budgets, liens on properties, and managing contractors yourself, be sure to write down David’s suggestions.

Have a question about real estate investing you want to ask David? Want to help other investors in your position? Submit your question here! 

In This Episode We Cover:

Whether or not the turnkey rental model is built to scale your portfolio

Why capital is crucial when investing in real estate over the long-term

Breaking down the BRRRR strategy and walking through the more difficult steps

What to do if your rehab job goes over budget (and how to make it a win!)

Backing out of a contract when a lien has been placed against a home

Where (and how) to find reasonable, timely, and available contractors

554: 81 Units in 3 Years: All On-Market with NO Bank Loans w/Cody Davis
01:01:34

Profitable on-market properties are all around you, you just need to take the time to look. Oh, we hear what you’re saying, “all those on-market properties are bad deals!” While not all properties sitting on the MLS are home runs, today’s guest Cody Davis can confirm there are multiple cash flowing needles in the public housing market haystack.

Cody and his partner have been able to grow their portfolio to eighty-one units, all through seller financing and all found on-market. These deals not only cash flow but once paid off will allow Cody to retire not only himself but his mother as well. Did we mention that he’s twenty-one years old at the time of this recording? Another under-thirty-expert to add to our list of impressive guests!

While many investors give up after initial pushback over seller financing, Cody goes one step further by having the investor emotionally invest in his success. No tacky sales methods or pushy conversations—just honest work with a clear vision that a seller can relate to. Cody is top of his class in terms of managing properties, acquiring new ones, and working with sellers—a guest ANY investor can learn a lot from!

In This Episode We Cover:

Picking yourself up after a deal falls apart and finding another

“Relationship marketing” and how it helps sellers finance your acquisitions

Raising private capital and being sure your cash flow outweighs your debt

Having a crystal clear vision and using it to fuel all your acquisitions

Managing a property in-house vs. hiring a third-party property manager 

Why cap rate may be an over-hyped, often useless metric when looking at commercial real estate

Finding real estate deals on-market when there are “no deals to be found”

And So Much More!

553: BiggerNews January: Our Top 5 2022 Housing Market Predictions w/David Greene & Dave Meyer
00:47:34

It’s the new year, and that means it’s time for 2022 housing market predictions! Recently, Redfin compiled a list of their ten top 2022 housing market predictions ranging from things like interest rate bumps, to rent hikes, housing price cooldowns, and more. But, are these predictions realistic, and if so, how should investors prepare for them to come true?

David Greene and Dave Meyer are back again to take a look at five of these ten predictions and give their informed, battle-tested opinions on which have the potential to come true. Dave has spent probably every day of the past year looking at housing market data and investing himself. David on the other hand has been running multiple businesses in the real estate vertical, allowing him to see directly what is happening in the market.

With the Dave-duo back in the podcasting saddle, you’ll be able to make wiser investment decisions this year while following the “pendulum swing” of wealth-building in real estate!

Have a happy, healthy, and wealthy 2022!

In This Episode We Cover:

What happens when interest rates start to rise in 2022?

Will new listings hit a 10-year high as housing demand stays steady?

What will rent hikes look like as inflation roars onward?

Whether or not investing in condos could be the underrated real estate play of the decade

Investing in the metaverse and buying virtual real estate

Hedging inflation by making smart, informed real estate purchases

551: Brandon’s Final Episode: Life Beyond Real Estate, w/ David Greene and BiggerPockets Founder Joshua Dorkin
01:20:40

Brandon Turner has been an essential part of the real estate investing community for almost a decade. Some could say that he is THE person most thought of when you say “real estate investing”. But, in a both sad and happy way, Brandon is taking time off from the BiggerPockets Podcast to spend more time with his family, build his business, and surf significantly more.

Due to the magnitude of the occasion, we brought in BiggerPockets’ founder, Joshua Dorkin, to help hand off the keys to the castle to your new show host, David Greene. Brandon, David, and Josh spend this show talking about burnout, identity, the cost of comparison, wealth building, new year's resolutions and goals, and how to become a better person, bit by bit, every day.

We will miss hearing Brandon’s metaphors, jiu-jitsu references, and real estate horror stories from years ago, but we wish him the best of luck on his new ventures and hope to hear him back on the podcast soon with an update. For everyone but Brandon, stick around for new show formats with brand new co-hosts and content that you, the BiggerPockets community, have been asking for.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why burnout can be dangerous and often deceiving on your journey to success

Separating your identity from your occupation and being more than just an investor

The cost of comparison and why being content is the ultimate sign of success

The “Wheel Of Life” practice to help you analyze where you are lacking

2022 goal setting and resolutions, and whether or not they work

Advice on podcasting and taking the reins from Brandon Turner and Joshua Dorkin

550: BiggerPockets Podcast 550: Foreclosures, Flipping, and Creating Your Rental Property “Buy Box” w/Tommy Christy
01:23:43

Tommy Christy has bought more homes than most investors you know combined. While he didn’t have to put up his own money to close on the deals, he did go through the process of lead generating, offering, auctioning, analyzing, and finally closing on them for his hedge fund employer. He was able to score twenty-seven hundred homes in just over two years, before realizing it was time for him to build his personal portfolio a bit more.

When the market crashed in 2009, Tommy saw an opportunity to buy homes at a significant discount. He was essentially buying anything under sixty thousand dollars in California, which turned out to be a good idea seeing how much the state has appreciated in the past twelve years. Tommy knows what it takes for the hedge funds to buy a great deal, but he also knows what they’re overlooking.

Even if you’re not planning on buying two-thousand plus units in two years, Tommy’s knowledge of “buy boxes” and systematizing your lead flow can help you reach a significant unit count, much faster. If you want to partner up on a deal, have a chat, or wholesale a home, get in touch with Tommy at tommy@ilovehouses.com!

In This Episode We Cover:

REOs vs. foreclosures vs. pre-foreclosures (and which you should look out for)

Creative financing and understanding which type falls into which market cycle

Developing your “buy box” and “crystal clear criteria” for real estate deals

Thinking like a hedge fund so you can beat them at their own game

How to scale your portfolio so you don’t just have more units, but less work

Where to find the best lead sources so you can buy, BRRRR, or wholesale as you see fit

And So Much More!

549: Building a $2M Portfolio While Raising 2 Kids w/ Maria Friström
01:15:31

Maria Friström is an investor, designer, mother, and business owner from Finland, and she’s one of the only few people that can match Brandon Turner in height. Maria was working in Silicon Valley before she voluntarily left her position to build an empire of her own. She took her down payment savings for a primary residence and on a whim bought a rental property in Fort Collins, Colorado.

She and her husband then decided to move to Finland to raise their children. Through some challenging life events, Maria was left heartbroken and grief-stricken, with a business that became a full-time job for her. She wanted to express her creativity via design, so they decided to move back to America to flip their first rental property in Colorado.

Maria’s inspiring story is a testament to how real estate investing can pull you out of financial, emotional, and mental depths. She has built a real estate empire worth well over two million dollars and has the financial freedom to spend time where she wants, with who she wants, doing what she wants.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to build your real estate portfolio without building yourself a job

Using real estate as a hedge against high taxes 

Presenting investment opportunities in a professional, efficient way

Healing after heartbreak and using your passions to bring you mental clarity 

The 4 keys to raising capital for real estate investing (whether it be banks, private money, etc.)

Why you should always be willing to eat the shiz sandwich

548: How to NOT Get Scammed on Your Next “Real Estate Opportunity” w/Mike Nuss & Tyler Combs
00:53:17

Your real estate partnership may be closer than you think. Maybe it’s that seller you’re talking to on craigslist, maybe it’s your home appraiser, or maybe it’s someone you meet at a sketchy real estate investing company. Mike Nuss and Tyler Combs never planned on becoming partners when they linked up to discuss a potential sale of a property. But, when fate put the two together again in the same company, they decided to split off and use their complementary skill sets to build a real estate empire.

Mike brought the acquisitions and property management side to their business, while Tyler focused on managing and selling flips. Together they brought the rocket fuel of profit and cash flow to their growing business. Now, they’ve acquired more than eighty units and aren’t planning on stopping any time soon.

Mike and Tyler built their business on the back of strong investor relationships, truthful and honest work, and the ability to find seller finance deals. With the combo of creative financing, marketing, and hard work, they’ve become real estate leaders in their area with an expanding portfolio, team, and strategy.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to vet someone who’s raising capital for a real estate investment

Combining flips and rentals to maximize growth in real estate 

Using seller financing to acquire more units with less money upfront

Creative financing options like subject toraising private capital, and more

Land Banking” and using it to set up your portfolio for future success

Becoming a master in your field and going a mile deep on your strengths

547: 52 Properties in 52 Weeks with Omni Casey
01:02:22

Buying and selling real estate portfolios isn’t what Omni Casey was raised to think about. As a middle child in a large family, Omni was never given the “investing talk” and was often surrounded by people who thought landlords were greedy. But, Omni had the entrepreneurial spirit, and through trial and error, found real estate investing to be the most reliable, practical, scalable, and fun business around.

He started with a single “condotel” in his native state of Hawaii before branching off into out-of-state investing. For most of the past two decades, Omni never spoke about his investing career to those outside of his immediate family. It wasn’t until recently that he started the “Cash Flow Breakfast Club” for agents in his brokerage to talk about investing, financial freedom, and generational wealth.

Now, with over one hundred properties, Omni is on a mission to purchase fifty-two properties in fifty-two weeks! Although it’s not the end of the year just yet, we’re quite confident that he and his team will successfully cross the finish line.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to get into real estate when your family doesn’t openly talk about money

Finding a mentor and using their expertise to propel you forward

Purchasing real estate in expensive markets and when to value appreciation over cash flow

The questions to ask a potential property manager in a new market

Buying and selling real estate portfolios to create a win-win for both parties

2022 market predictions and why you shouldn’t depend on today’s political environment

The “Cash Flow Breakfast Club” and Omni’s new book

And So Much More!

546: Flipping 30 Houses Per Year All While Keeping Wealth-Building Cash Flow w/ Noah Evans and Jeff Fawson
01:13:28

Adversity tends to breed ingenuity and genius. More often than not, smart and capable individuals will find a way to use their hardships as fuel to build something better. This is exactly what house flipping, wholesaling, and rental property-owning partners Noah Evans and Jeff Fawson did.

Noah and Jeff were both following different paths to real estate success, taking on apprenticeships under investors who had already made it big. It wasn’t until Jeff was doing some work on Noah’s house that the two began talking, realizing they had the same type of past conflicts and saw each other’s strengths as their own weaknesses.

Now, they’re building a systematized, scaling real estate business, operating in multiple markets, and bringing in not only flipping and wholesaling profits but generational wealth-building cash flow. Noah and Jeff discuss how they research markets for investing, systematizing fix and flips down to a point-by-point checklist, and how to make networking beneficial (instead of a drag).

In This Episode We Cover:

Using your past struggles to fuel your future success in real estate and life

Networking in a way that truly adds value to other investors’ lives

Finding a partner who matches your weaknesses and struggles in your strengths

How to identify and research a new market for real estate investing

The systems and tools that Noah and Jeff use to run their scalable business

Paying attention to personal progress, instead of the dollar amount on a deal

How ripped BiggerPockets founder Josh Dorkin has become

And So Much More!

545: Self Storage Investing and Avoiding “Monster Houses” w/ Sergio Altomare
01:13:00

Sergio Altomare didn’t start out investing in self storage. He made a massive leap, making lots of mistakes along the way until he found this gold mine of an asset class. For years, Sergio was buying small multifamily properties, one of them being a “monster house” which he later had to sell due to some serious zoning issues. Once he was introduced to syndications, he knew he could take his portfolio higher, without the headaches of large multifamily.

Now, Sergio has twelve self storage facilities, with a combined valuation of close to $40M. He’s been able to increase his equity by many, many millions with simple value-add strategies like increasing rent, paving parking lots, and installing key-accessible gates for his customers. This isn’t the regular value-add you’re used to with granite countertops and freshly tiled showers; self storage value-add can be minimal with massive results.

Sergio also dives into his long-term exit plans—something every investor should be thinking about. Are you planning on selling your properties one by one to the highest bidder, or will you package them up and walk away with a huge payday?

In This Episode We Cover:

What a multifamily “monster house” is and why you should avoid them

Zoning laws and how they can affect your long-term profit

The pros and cons of investing in self storage facilities 

What to look for in self storage facilities and other types of commercial real estate

How to raise money for your deals (even if you’re a new investor)

Defining your exit plan so you can walk away rich after building your portfolio

And So Much More!

544: How to Craft a Vivid Vision in Your Real Estate Business w/ Cameron Herold
01:06:45

Cameron Herold developed the “Vivid Vision” format years ago, allowing not only him but other high-level business leaders to peek into the crystal ball of their futures. This vision doesn’t magically come true once you write it out, but mysteriously, those who craft a "Vivid Vision" accomplish, if not exceed, their goals for the future.

No one is more deserving of a call with Cameron than J.B. Klein, our winner of BPCon 2021’s coaching call giveaway. J.B. scaled quickly over the past year to hit a respectable unit count, but he’s feeling traction slip out from under his feet. J.B. wants to ensure that his business is set up to grow if he intends to acquire many multiples of his current portfolio.

To that end, JB crafted a Vivid Vision, and a team of copywriters at Conscious Copy helped turn it into a masterpiece!

This call between Cameron and J.B. is a massive resource to anyone investing in real estate, regardless of business size or experience. Cameron is a highly sought-after business coach and he makes clear, direct points that any listener of The BiggerPockets Podcast can take and expand upon to make their lives more fulfilling.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to craft your three-year “Vivid Vision” of a future business

Describing and defining your why behind business growth, passive income, and freedom

Building strong relationships with your team, partners, and investors

Minimizing anxiety and sleepless nights as a stressed-out leader

Delegating any task that doesn’t include your “genius” 

Setting up the core values of your business and sticking to them

And So Much More!

543: 5 Tools To Unlock Your “Ideal Life” w/ "Traction" Author Gino Wickman
01:20:48

Gino Wickman’s name is synonymous with business growth, entrepreneurship, and freedom. He spent the majority of his youth building up his father’s company to later sell it for a substantial sum. After teaching others how to do the same, Gino took the time to write books that would pave the way for future entrepreneurial success. Books like TractionRocket FuelGet A Grip, and his newest bookThe EOS Life

In it, Gino describes the five points of an ideal life: doing what you love, with people you love, making a huge difference, being compensated appropriately, and having time for other passions. Sounds like paradise doesn’t it? Well, if you’re an entrepreneur (or a want-to-be entrepreneur), this “ideal life” is perfectly within your grasp.

On today’s show, Gino walks through how any entrepreneur, nine-to-five worker, or business owner can hit all five of these points and live a truly fulfilling life. Gino mentions five separate tools that can help you along your journey to an ideal life, but the most important piece of this entire show is how you have to put up the risk to take away the reward.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why Gino created EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) for business owners

Whether or not you have the six essential traits of an entrepreneur 

The five points of living an ideal life (and why they’re closer than you think)

Dropping your $25/hour tasks and starting to focus on $1,000+/hour tasks 

Understanding that reward does not come without sufficient risk 

Why time off from work can fuel better ideas and help you enjoy life more

And So Much More!

542: 22 Doors After “Starting from Negative” w/Billy Dha Kidd
00:57:32

Billy Dha Kidd is better known for his rapping than his real estate skills, but both careers are worth celebrating. Billy’s early life was anything but comfortable — growing up in El Salvador, he was used to no running water and no electricity. He likes to say that he didn’t start at zero but started at negative one-hundred. Billy’s family immigrated to the United States when he was 10 years old, moving first to California and then later to Nebraska.

As a teenager, Billy began rapping as a way for him to express himself but found he loved the craft. Rapping allowed Billy to fill his time with something positive, instead of taking the wrong path many of his friends were on. His rap taught him sales skills, business skills, how taxes work, and most importantly, how to make money.

Reading stories of generational wealth, Billy was compelled to start investing in real estate. He got his first deal, learned a lot about the BRRRR strategy, and continued to put his knowledge to work. Now, he’s sitting on twenty-two doors between eighteen different properties. He gives credit to simply taking responsibility for his outcomes, instead of blaming others or the system around him.

In This Episode We Cover:

Building wealth even if you started with a disadvantage

Developing sales skills and using them when buying and selling properties

Generational wealth and why it means more than just getting rich

Finding deals both on and off-market for the BRRRR strategy

The biggest hurdles that come with owning a large rental portfolio 

Creating a sellable, scalable business so you work less and make more

And So Much More!

541: BiggerNews December: Zillow Quits Flipping, Inflation News, & "Power Buyers"
00:47:02

Will inflation sink real estate? Is Zillow out of the iBuyer game? And why does my cash offer mean less than it did last year? Dave Meyer, VP of Data and Analytics at BiggerPockets, has heard your questions through BiggerPockets forum posts, YouTube videos, and on Instagram. This data-loving sandwich connoisseur is back to walk you through the biggest stories in real estate.

As incredible as Zillow Offers was, it looks like it won’t be around any longer (at least for a while) since having a half a billion-dollar loss in Q3 of 2021. With Zillow’s exit from the iBuyer and flipping market, other big players like Opendoor and Offerpad have come in to fill the gap. But, what about the new “Power Buyers” in the market? Will they help or hurt real estate investors?

We’ve also seen a run-up in inflation over this past year, causing home prices to artificially soar (especially when paired with low interest rates). So what is the best move for a real estate investor to make in today’s market? Take advantage of low-interest mortgages and all-time high rent prices, or wait for a supposed housing market crash or correction?

In This Episode We Cover:

Why Zillow cut their losses and exited the iBuying arena

The new “Power Buyers” in the housing market and how they could help investors like you

What a 30-year high inflation rate means for asset prices

How to take advantage of record-low interest rates for long-term cash flow

The cities in the US with the highest growing rent prices 

What to look for in a rental depending on your estimated retirement age

And So Much More!

540: Cop Salary to $300 Million in Real Estate w/ Whitney Sewell
01:10:03

How do you build massive wealth while keeping your passions, family, faith, and bank account intact? Successful real estate investors will tell you the same thing: you need to automate and systematize to make time for it all, and they aren't kidding. Whitney Sewell was working as a cop when he got his start in real estate. Looking at his $35,000 salary, he realized that the long hours and tiresome, but enjoyable work, wouldn’t allow him financial freedom.

Whitney wanted more time with his kids, his wife, and his beloved horses. So, he started attending every real estate conference he could go to, networking with anyone who owned any amount of real estate. He hired a performance coach, built a successful podcast, and flipped his limiting beliefs on their head, so he could tackle big deals.

In only three years, Whitney built a real estate empire with over $300M assets under management. Part of his personal profits are donated to help adopted children and those who need adoptive parents. Whitney talks about how his faith and social goals have played a huge part in his real estate and how doing good must be the driving force behind wealth accumulation.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why it’s important to “overcommit” if you really want to succeed in real estate

The “most dangerous book to reach on a beach

Why your network is your net worth and pushing yourself to connect with other like-minded investors

Why wealth and faith don’t need to contradict each other

Giving yourself the “thinking time” to spawn new, ingenious ideas

Outsourcing and upgrading your business so you can make more while loving life

And So Much More!

538: Find the Real Estate You Hate (So You Can Buy the Real Estate You Love)
01:01:43

Not everyone will love commercial investing, mixed-use buildings, flipping houses, BRRRRing, or even traditional buy-and-hold rentals. But you’ll probably find one type of real estate class that you absolutely love. It may take you some time, but if you’re able to find a property type that sparks your creativity, all while providing positive cash flow, you’ll know you made it.

Katie Neason definitely didn't love government-subsidized rentals. She dreaded the phone calls, the repairs, and the unresponsive tenants. Katie thought that upgrading her investing strategy to multifamily housing would solve the problems. Unfortunately, after buying some fourplexes, she realized that too wasn’t for her.

After trial and error, Katie found her true real estate loves: flipping, developing, and mixed-use buildings. So, she went into all three and is doing phenomenal! Katie shares a special Deal Deep Dive where she walks through a degraded downtown building that is now the talk of the town due to her smart negotiating, creative redesigns, and ability to use her network to fund the deal!

In This Episode We Cover:

Why it’s important to find the real estate classes you truly enjoy working on

Understanding the positives and negatives that come with subsidized housing

Revitalizing a downtown through smart planning, designing, and financing 

Taking action so you can achieve “hockey stick” growth in real estate

Working with the city so you can collectively build something that adds value to the community

How to negotiate so both the buyer and seller walk away with a win

And So Much More!

537: 10 Best Books for Real Estate, Health, and Wealth
00:54:22

Sometimes the best real estate books aren’t about real estate at all. Or at least, that’s what Brandon and David found out. After rummaging through their bookshelves, Brandon and David decided to give listeners their top ten books that allowed them to reach financial, spiritual, and personal success. Some of these books include classics you’ve heard mentioned on the show before, while others are centered more on human happinessproblem solving, or relationships.

Whether you’re a veteran or rookie, reading a simple concept, sentence, or quote can fundamentally shift how you think about life and investing. Brandon also runs through a dozen more book recommendations at the end of this episode, so if you’ve already read through the top ten, hang around for that!

In This Episode We Cover:

Understanding the different parts of the brain and using it to build better arguments and strengthen relationships 

Tweaking the “rules of the game” you’re playing in relation to wealth and happiness

536: How to Get 'Unstuck' | Coaching Calls w/ Brandon Turner
00:46:12

Real estate investing can feel complicated, even when you’re doing well. There’s usually a time when every investor hits an invisible wall and moving on to the next deal, partnership, or business can feel like a slog. When this happens, it’s a good idea to lean on experienced investors who have been through these waves of success, failure, and stagnation.

Brandon Turner, host of The BiggerPockets Podcast, is back with live one-on-one coaching calls with three different investors, all experiencing some form of investor paralysis. Brandon talks to Mike who’s having trouble letting go of control on rehabs, Stephanie who’s had past success but can’t pick her next move, and Sterling who wants to build organic relationships with sellers.

These three investors are in three completely different parts of their real estate investing journey, but all share some of the same headaches. Brandon walks each of them through their predicaments while illuminating some paths forward that could yield them more money, less headache, and a larger portfolio.

In This Episode We Cover:

Always thinking of yourself as “the general” and not a foot soldier in the war

Prioritizing time with family over simple outsourceable tasks

Why real estate investors need to go “a mile deep” to survive in 2021 (and beyond!)

Building organic relationships with off-market sellers

Systematizing an outreach network and drip campaign that allow deals to come to you

And So Much More!

535: Keep, Refi, or Sell and Scale? | Live Portfolio Analysis
01:05:49

On today's show: a coaching session with David Greene and the winner of a charity auction at BPCon, Carla Holmes from Yellow Square Properties.

Carla is a long-time investor and rookie to commercial investing. She's been cautious with her real estate investing and never took on debt after she went through foreclosure during The Great Recession. Now, she sits on over a million dollars in equity, spread across multiple properties in the Carolinas. Her recent acquisition is a 4.5-acre commercial property that she’ll convert into a parking lot for big rigs in her area.

Since this is a brand new real estate class she’s entering into, Carla wants to be absolutely sure she’s crossing all her t’s and dotting her i’s. David walks her through a live analysis going over the hurdles, work, expenses, and income that this property will bring in. He also helps Carla debate whether selling, refinancing, or keeping her current properties is best based on her one-year financial independence goal.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to analyze a commercial property from scratch with limited property information

Identifying the drawbacks and new potential income stream opportunities on a property

Why so many frugal investors avoid debt, even if it could be of benefit to them

Why you shouldn’t “hit the cones” when investing in a new real estate class 

Thinking multiple steps ahead when making a move in real estate

And So Much More!

Welcome to another episode of Seeing Greene! That’s right, David Greene is back with more real estate answers, some brand new metaphors, and basic Jiu-Jitsu knowledge for the new and experienced real estate investor.

This episode has questions from non-investors, rookies, and veterans so no matter what stage of investing you’re in, David answers a question for you!

533: No Tenants, Toilets, or Trash? It's Possible, Through Self Storage w/ Paul Moore
01:02:36

It’s easy to get caught up in the world of residential real estate investing. Maybe buy a single-family buy-and-hold deal, or try and flip a house, or why not BRRRR? But, residential real estate comes with many challenges: complicated evictions, clogged toilets, a noisy tenant in your upstairs unit, and many, many more. But, there is an asset class you can invest in without toilets, tenants, or trash problems.

Paul Moore, author, capital raiser, and real estate educator joins us to talk about his newest obsession: self storage investing. Why self storage? Maybe it’s because nobody is living in the property, or that many existing facilities have HUGE value-add potential, or maybe it’s the tax savings, or the ability to increase equity by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, seemingly overnight.

There are so many reasons why self storage investing could be one of the greatest yet rarely spoken of assets in the world of real estate investing. Wondering how you can get started in this high-profit, low-maintenance investing world? Grab Paul’s new book, Storing Up Profits!

In This Episode We Cover:

Why commercial real estate allows you to build wealth faster, smarter, and with scale 

The four strategies you can use to build your self storage empire 

The massive tax-saving strategies you may be missing out on

Looking for value-add that’s hidden in plain sight

The seven paths a new investor can take to get started in the self storage industry

Income opportunities that could turn thousands in revenue into millions in equity

And So Much More!

532: Is 2022 the “Perfect Storm” For Multifamily Investing? | J Scott Takeover
01:23:40

If you own a single-family rental or a portfolio of single-family rentals, the world of large multifamily may seem scary to you. There are so many more tenants and units, there’s a different financing structure, and what about finding the deals? At some point, many investors make the jump into the world of multifamily, and they rarely look back. One of our own, J Scott, did the same when he offered a year's worth of work for free in order to learn the multifamily game.

Joining him today are multifamily syndicators and thought leaders Ashley Wilson, Brian Burke, and Joe Fairless. Together these four investors manage over two billion dollars worth of multifamily real estate. And just like many listeners, they at one point started at zero.

J uses this episode as a multifamily roundtable, asking each of these veteran investors about the state of the housing market, where to invest, how to plan an exit, which strategies they use when investing, and how rookie investors can get started. Regardless of your unit count, experience, or real estate skills, all these investors believe that with some hard, creative work, you too can succeed in multifamily!

In This Episode We Cover:

Why 2021 was the “perfect storm” for multifamily (and whether or not it will continue)

Cap rate and why it isn’t as great of a metric as most investors think it is

Creating an entrance and exit plan for a large multifamily deal

Finding the “value-add” that will make you and your investors more money

How to analyze a multifamily market using a number of demographic metrics

Transitioning from single-family investing to multifamily success

Growing relationships with owners, brokers, and multifamily vendors

And So Much More!

531: Can’t Find a Deal? Here's How to "Make a Deal" w/ Daniel Harvey
00:54:36

Real estate zoning allows those with a keen eye, creative mind, and delayed gratification to transform a once-vacant warehouse into a massively profitable multifamily deal. While this isn’t as easy as the simple buy-and-hold strategy of real estate investing, it can generate far more profit, equity, and appreciation than buying a single-family home or even multifamily buildings outright.

J Scott joins David Greene to talk with Dan ‘The Real Estate Man’ Harvey, who has been using this multifamily conversion strategy for years after he realized how many vacant commercial properties were being under-analyzed by investors. The tactic isn’t too complicated: find a commercial property with the right zoning, convert it into multifamily housing, stabilize, refinance, and do it again! Dan says that this strategy is a slight off-shoot of the ever-popular BRRRR strategy, but with FAR more upside.

Even if you know nothing about zoning, construction, or analyzing big deals, Dan will help you navigate how to do your first multifamily conversion in this episode. He even gives a direct callout to anyone who wants to help him and learn from his experience!

In This Episode We Cover:

Understanding the different types of zoning codes in your area

Finding the “best use” of a property and using that to siphon off maximum profit

How “By-Right” zoning allows investors to fully capitalize on a property’s best use

Calculating future rents and value of a property after a multifamily conversion

Combining residential and commercial space to eliminate vacancies on your property

Building a team and finding a mentor that will give you the knowledge to grow

And So Much More!

530: Finding the “Hidden Gold” Most Investors Miss Both On & Off-Market
01:00:49

Having limited lung capacity while playing college basketball seems almost impossible. But, like almost everything else in Nolan Gottlieb’s life, he pushed through it to accomplish his dreams. Hard work and determination are what allowed Nolan to step onto that basketball court, even with a severe physical disadvantage. The same determination is exactly what allowed him to close on nineteen units in just ten months of investing.

Nolan didn’t know anything about real estate; he couldn’t even describe what a mortgage was if you asked. But, as he ventured off the basketball court and became a real estate agent, he knew that agent commissions wouldn’t protect him and his family if he got sick again. He needed long-lasting wealth, passive income, and an ability to scale his success.

He started out partnering with a friend on a BRRRR. It went so well, he decided to tackle an off-market deal. Nolan was able to close not only on one off-market deal, but on a fourteen-unit apartment building as well, thanks to his six steps to find “buried gold” in his market.


In This Episode We Cover:

How to accomplish your goals, even if you start at a severe disadvantage

Why passive income sources far outweigh one-time profits

The six steps to finding profitable, undervalued off-market properties 

Taking down a fourteen unit apartment building as a rookie

What appraisers look for when going through your property

Discovering your “why” behind investing in real estate

And So Much More!

529: “Free Real Estate”, Negotiations, & Market Cycles | 'Takeover' Ep w Pace Morby
00:40:17

Creative financing solves an important problem for almost every type of real estate investor. Don’t have enough cash? Try creative financing! No credit? Try creative financing! Ran out of conventional loans? You already know what we’re going to say...One of the most knowledgeable real estate investors around, who pretty much reinvented the subject to deal, is Pace Morby, and he’s here with us today!

Pace invites four guests onto the show to ask him their most burning questions about subject to deals, creative financing, legal protections when investing in real estate, and how to negotiate with a seller. Even if you’ve never thought of doing a creative financing structure, Pace may convince you that there’s good reason to be educated on them, as it could help you save thousands in closing costs and allow you to scale your portfolio much quicker.

In This Episode We Cover:

  • What are novation agreements and why they may be a great secret negotiating tactic 
  • Whether or not today’s housing market shows similar signs to the 2007 crash 
  • How to calculate profits for a potential buyer on a wholesale deal
  • Whether or not an LLC is necessary when buying rental properties or flips
  • The inexpensive team member that could help take HOURS of work off your plate 
  • What to do when a seller won’t come down to your maximum offer
  • And So Much More!

528: 5 Questions to Ask EVERY Seller & Finding the “Bunnies” To Close the Deal
01:02:32

Closing off-market deals is one of the best ways to start stacking your real estate portfolio, especially while the housing market is so hot. But, off-market deals often require cold-calling, which is something that makes many investors’ blood run cold. So, how do you talk to a seller in the most confident, comfortable, and competent way? You start by asking the five questions Pace Morby, master of off-market deal-finding and creative financing, has laid out.

These five questions were developed over years of cold calling and door knocking. They were specifically designed to walk a seller through a transaction, making them as comfortable as possible, allowing them to bring up their own limitations, and giving you the space to close if the deal fits. This is not your typical “call the seller and give them a cash offer” piece of advice. These questions run far, far deeper than that.

If you’ve wanted to try flipping, wholesaling, or even just off-market deal finding, this may be the perfect episode to listen to, as a veteran investor lays out the exact questions he used to close on 500+ off-market deals.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why every seller has their own “bunnies” and what you can do to find them

Asking questions that allow sellers to illuminate silent partners in the deal

Why you should NEVER tell sellers what is wrong with their property

Helping a seller create a story and allowing your offer to fuel it

Pulling out missing information when initially interviewing a seller

Going in for the close without becoming a pushy salesperson

And So Much More!

527: 300 Doors, 100% Creative Financing with Pace Morby
01:13:43

Pace Morby’s name has become synonymous with seller financing, subject to deals, and flipping. He is one of the most educated players in the real estate game on all things related to non-traditional financing. He even taught Brandon Turner, the author of Investing in Real Estate with No (and Low) Money Down, a thing or two on today’s show!

Originally working as a contractor, Pace was hired on as a flipper for some popular iBuyer portfolios. He flipped over a thousand homes a year but was doing so without building any wealth for himself. This is when he began flipping his own homes and slowly, steadily building a portfolio of rentals that would provide him with the cash flow he desired. Did we mention he did this entirely without bank financing?

Since Pace is the go-to investor for all things creative financing, Brandon and David took advantage of his time on the show to ask him about subject to strategies, seller financing tips, and how he takes a seller from consideration to closing. If you’ve been wondering how to build your rental portfolio without down payments, credit checks, or preapproval from banks, this is THE episode to listen to.

In This Episode We Cover:

Outsourcing your business so you aren’t the driver of every deal

Structuring a subject to deal and using it to create a win for the seller

Why you shouldn’t be afraid to offer full price on a seller finance deal

The first phrase you should say to any seller when viewing their property

What to do when your “due on sale” clause comes to fruition

How to find work, meet investors, and grow your brand through social media 

And So Much More!

526: BiggerNews November: Congress's $40B Sucker Punch to Real Estate Investors (See Update!)
01:11:06

[NOTE: Since this episode was recorded, some events have changed. We have updated the intro to the episode and the lead-in to our conversation with Jeff Watson to reflect those developments]

Inflation is big, scary, and in the news. With it comes the fear of sky-high home values, consumer goods falling in short supply, and cash positions becoming worthless overnight. With high inflation at our doorstep, we need to be smarter (and faster) when it comes to investing. Thankfully, for BiggerPockets listeners, one of the strongest hedges against inflation is real estate!

David Greene and Dave Meyer are back on another episode of BiggerNews to discuss not only the cause of inflation but how to protect yourself against it in this hyper-inflationary environment we find ourselves in. Both David and Dave harp on how important it is to start investing as soon as you can, taking advantage of low-interest rates and locked-in leverage that bank financing provides.

Jeff Watson, attorney and self-directed IRA expert, joins the Dave duo to talk about the proposed “Build Back Better Bill” and its consequences for real estate investors - which Jeff calls a “nightmare” for those who want to raise private money for deals. As noted at the top of this description – in the time since this episode was recorded, the sections of the bill affecting Self-Directed IRAs have been removed. We've added audio to the episode explaining those developments; we are keeping the content because it offers a glimpse into an issue that may crop up again on Capitol Hill in the future.

In This Episode We Cover:

What is inflation and how did America become an inflationary environment?

The main causes of inflation and whether or not it will affect you

Using debt to lock in low-interest-rate loans while rents continue to rise

The “Build Back Better Bill” and its consequences for all real estate investors

How this new bill would have potentially hurt ‘average joe’ investors while propping up hedge funds

Steps you can take to protect your assets

525: Stop Planning Goals Around Results, Do This Instead w/ Geoff Woods
01:13:02

Our perceptions of work and life have changed significantly over the past year. While we once had a clear distinction between the two, now, we have a blurred line barely separating them. For some, this has made their life more hectic, and for others, more clear. It’s now more important than ever to define where we’re going and why we’re going in that direction.

Joining David today is Mindy Jensen, host of the BiggerPockets Money Podcast, and Geoff Woods, host The ONE Thing Podcast. Many guests on the show have mentioned The ONE Thing for its simple, yet impactful message for team leaders and solopreneurs who have too much on their plates. Geoff has taken the message of this book and his organization to heart, allowing him to free up time, and live a truly extraordinary life.

Geoff unpacks exactly what it means to have intentional goals and live with purpose. He is very specific on defining what truly matters to your business, personal life, and internal values, and separates those things from the rest. Geoff also brings on Jordan and John, two business partners, one of which attended The ONE Thing Retreat last year, and talks them through their long-term vision, goal, and strategy.

In This Episode We Cover:

The importance of striving to live an extraordinary life in all aspects 

How to become more purposeful in the areas of life that truly matter

Working through goal setting in partnerships, relationships, or solo

Why most people don’t reach their goals or set too attainable goals

Permitting yourself to dream big for a five, ten, or twenty-year vision

What you can expect at The ONE Thing’s 2021 Retreat

Why the purpose of a goal isn’t the result, but something far more meaningful

And So Much More!

524: 3 Sales Secrets That Will Help You Close Your First or Next Deal
01:07:50

A decade ago, Chandler David Smith was a broke college student. After searching for jobs, he was given the opportunity to try his hand at door-to-door pest control sales. The first week went slow, and he wasn’t able to close on a single sale. But, by the end of the summer, he had crushed the rookie sales record and walked away with $96,000 worth of commission.

But now Chandler had a problem: too much cash and nothing to do with it. His friend’s father convinced him that real estate investing may be the best place to park his extra cash, so he did just that. Chandler bought a condo for $73,000. It wasn’t a great deal and he made some big mistakes, but it sparked a fire under him that allowed him to grow his portfolio to over three hundred units, through small multifamily, large multifamily, and self storage.

It’s no coincidence that Chandler succeeded in real estate with his sales background, since finding off-market deals, negotiating with sellers, and raising rents all require you to sell something to someone. If you can capitalize on some of these sales secrets that Chandler discusses, you may too have a far easier time locking down phenomenal deals.

In This Episode We Cover:

The verbal and visual cues that show a sales prospect you’re trustworthy

Why those that can handle rejection succeed not only in sales but in real estate

Following the “sales logic” of preface, feature, and benefit 

The huge advantage of investors buying “mid-priced” properties

The differences between owning small multifamily, large multifamily, and self storage 

Developing your property management team and using them to scale your portfolio

And So Much More!

523: Meet Max Maxwell: Broke at 30, Millionaire at 33 | 'Takeover' Ep w Nasar
00:48:02

You wouldn’t know how far Max Maxwell has come at first glance. Looking at his Instagram, you’ll see private planes, a wealth of knowledge on real estate, and seriously shiny Rolexes. Not many people know that only a number of years ago, Max was broke, without enough money to fill up his car with gas, and sleeping at his mom’s house after ten years of failed businesses.

Max tried everything from running a property management company, to marketing, to managing a restaurant, and many other ventures. None of them truly stuck, causing Max to go from state to state, trying to find a successful business model that would make him wealthy.

Now, Max is well known as a master in wholesaling, rental property investing, and philanthropy. He has always made an effort to help those in need and even went to Ghana with today’s host, Nasar El Arabi. These North Carolinian investors have truly gone from rags to riches and have been able to find meaningful, lasting success through real estate investing.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to get your start in real estate investing without any money 

Finding yourself at the bottom and pushing yourself up to the top

Finding, skip tracing, and marketing your first deal as a wholesaler 

The “conveyor belt” system of off-market deal-finding

Why every great real estate investor MUST be able to spot good deals

Jumping into a new niche, even as an experienced real estate investor

522: From “No Comma Paychecks” to 7-Figures Using These 5 Skills w/ Nasar El Arabi
01:05:55

Nasar El-Arabi is a self-proclaimed “failure” when it comes to being employed. He wasn’t cut out for the banking industry, the call center, or the classroom. Some people aren’t meant to be employed, and Nasar was one of them. As soon as he was able to get his start in real estate investing, he realized that this was a path that could help him succeed, all while challenging him in ways the W2 world didn’t.

Nasar has been wholesaling, flipping, and landlording for over a decade. He has amassed a seven-figure net worth, due to his sweat, grind, and problem-solving. Nasar has put together his list of the five most important traits of any successful real estate investor. These traits aren’t what you’d hear at corporate, and they require those who are interested in investing to put in the time, energy, and creativity to thrive.

If you’re interested not only in real estate investing, but becoming a full-time investor doing what you love, make sure you pay careful attention to Nasar’s advice. While these aren’t traits you can simply switch on or off overnight, they are things that you can develop over the years you are investing, which can help you build wealthreach financial freedom, and give you the life you’ve dreamed of.

In This Episode We Cover:

How to invest in real estate while making a median income 

Diversifying your portfolio so you have multiple exit strategies and streams of income

Why every investor needs to “become a rookie all over again

Using creative financing to structure deals that benefit the buyer and seller

Leveraging partnerships to find cash, divvy up responsibilities, and purchase more real estate

Owning a business and learning the skills that every leader needs to succeed

And So Much More!

521: Leukemia & Bankruptcy to Retired with 250 Units in 7 Years
01:06:37

People often tell each other to stay positive” in light of grim circumstances or hard times. This consistent positivity can feel forced when going through something truly terrifying, but it’s exactly what helped Jeffrey Holst fight cancer, get out of bankruptcy, and retire in only seven years. Once Jeffrey committed to having no bad days, he was able to either change his day that was going poorly or see the positive in everything around him.

This philosophy helped him spur on new relationships, find new partners, and close on deals creatively. It was never “we can’t close on this” for Jeffrey, it was “how can we close on this.” He uses what he likes to call the “sideways eight” strategy that allows him to have infinite returns when investing, all while giving his partners and private lenders a sizable profit.

Jeffrey also talks about seeing the positive attributes of negative situations, and how he was able to leave his job as a lawyer and hit financial freedom due to his cancer diagnosis and later bankruptcy. If Jeffrey was able to dominate the multifamily market with an underwater net worth, think of what YOU can accomplish in the world of real estate investing!

In This Episode We Cover:

Buying properties without credit, money, or experience 

Creative financing strategies that allow you take tackle bigger and better deals

Fighting cancer and using hard times to fuel your success 

Managing a portfolio of two-hundred and fifty units

The “last life philosophy” and how it gives you a clear path to victory 

Syndicating on a small scale to close multi-million dollar deals

Analyzing your market as a "boots on the ground" investor

And So Much More!

520: $47k/Month in Rent, 0 Doors Owned | Rookie Takeover w/ Rafael Loza
00:49:23

The hosts look and sound a little different today. There are no beards and we haven’t heard one metaphor containing jiu-jitsu lingo... That’s because Ashley Kehr and Tony Robinson, hosts of the Real Estate Rookie Podcast have taken over the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast! Ashley and Tony regularly talk about how rookies can get their first (or next) deal, but today they’re combining expertise to talk about something more controversial: rental arbitrage.

Rental arbitrage is a form of subletting that allows long-term tenants to make massive cash flow off of short-term rentals. Someone who’s done this to an extreme is Rafael Loza. Rafael was working the night shift as his W2 job when he found out about short-term rental arbitrage. He sat on the idea for a few months, but ultimately tried out the concept on an apartment. This one apartment took home a massive profit, allowing him to quit his job and scale to fourteen units in just nine months.

Now, Rafael has twenty-four active units, all grossing thousands of dollars a month in rent for him. Back in March of 2020, Rafael was projected to bring in forty-seven thousand dollars in revenue in one month alone. But, the pandemic hit, forcing him to pivot, switch strategies, and take advantage of the flourishing short-term rental market. He has his sights set on ownership, but now he’s simply raking in the short-term stacks.

In This Episode We Cover:

Rental arbitrage and why it’s a low-cost way to get into real estate investing

Short-term cash flow vs long-term appreciation and combining the two

The startup costs it takes to create an arbitrage empire

How to pitch landlords on using their properties for short-term rentals

Negotiating leases and adding a subletting clause to any lease you undertake

Pivoting when your business hits a wall and combing back stronger

And So Much More!

519: 5 Keys to Becoming a Millionaire on Less Than $100k Per Year
01:16:11

You may know Ashley Kehr from the Real Estate Rookie Podcast, but you may not know that only a short time ago she was a rookie herself. Ashley started as a property manager for a local investor and slowly made her way from owning one property to owning thirty-three long-term rentals, a short-term arbitrage property, two commercial units, and one mobile home park. Quite a diverse portfolio!

What makes this even more impressive is that Ashley wasn’t coming into real estate with boatloads of cash. In fact, she and her husband have never collectively made more than six figures from their W2 jobs. So how does someone with a median income generate such a massive amount of cash flow, appreciation, and time freedom?

Ashley discusses the five fundamentals of real estate investing that led her to seven-figure net worth. These fundamentals can be used by anyone, at any stage in real estate investing, no matter their experience level. If you’re ready to supercharge your investing and go from rookie to rockstar, commit to the game plan Ashley has laid out!

In This Episode We Cover:

How to invest in real estate while making a median income 

Diversifying your portfolio so you have multiple exit strategies and streams of income

Why every investor needs to “become a rookie all over again

Using creative financing to structure deals that benefit the buyer and seller

Leveraging partnerships to find cash, divvy up responsibilities, and purchase more real estate

Owning a business and learning the skills that every leader needs to succeed

And So Much More!

517: 5 Pitfalls When Buying These “Crazy Cash Flow” Properties
01:06:23

Avery Carl is the go-to contact for short-term rental investing. Her business, The Short Term Shop and The Mortgage Shop not only helps find properties and secure loans for prospective short-term rental investors but also helps guide investors through their first vacation property purchase. While this type of property can be a cash flow king, it also takes more management and a bit more time upfront to get the system oiled and operating smoothly.

Since we last talked to Avery, she’s quadrupled her portfolio from twenty-something short-term units to ninety-six units, sixty-one of which are large multifamily properties. Avery gives an in-depth analysis on why short-term rentals should hold a place in every investor's asset collection, and the common pitfalls investors go through when purchasing their first short-term rental.

If you’d like to learn more about building wealth through short-term rental investing, grab Avery’s brand new book Short-Term Rental, Long-Term Wealth!

In This Episode We Cover:

Why having short-term rentals can help real estate investors mitigate risk

How Avery added over seventy more doors to her portfolio in under two years

The wrong vs. the right questions to ask when buying a short-term rental

The five things people need to avoid when making their first STR purchase

Why you may want to “bear-proof” your next cabin in the woods

Not being afraid to ask questions when investing

Why you should buy Avery’s new book Short-Term Rental, Long-Term Wealth

516: Are You an Asset or Liability to Those in Your Life? w/ Earn Your Leisure
01:08:23

Everyone knows that financial education is one of the most crucial things to teach children at a young age. It doesn't just set them up to be wealthy, but it gives them the tools to be confident, choose delayed gratification, and hopefully, impact another young person’s life one day. This is understood wholeheartedly by Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, former financial advisor and school teacher.

What had started as a small classroom experiment in teaching children financial literacy turned into a media empire. Rashad and Troy shared their class teachings online, which pushed them to create a course for the kids, and later into the Earn Your Leisure podcast, where they talk about everything ranging from high-value financial concepts to sports to entertainment and more.

What keeps Rashad and Troy going is knowing that their work is allowing thousands of people to improve their life situations, whether children or adults. The duo not only talks extensively about the difference between financial assets and liabilities but about relationship assets and liabilities. This helps answer the question: who’s helping bring you up and who’s trying to keep you down?

In This Episode We Cover:

The importance of spurring on financial literacy for young kids 

How to teach your children about money and examples you can use

The role that playing sports had in Rashad and Troy’s lives

Assets over liabilities and why you need to invest in relationship assets as well

Stocks, ETFs, multifamily, and cryptocurrency investments

Staying committed to your goals and following through

And So Much More!

515: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Buying Out-of-State Investment Properties
01:08:57

It’s not uncommon for investors to start out by buying properties in their home markets. It makes things like neighborhood research, rehabs, and tenant showings so much easier when you’re only a short drive away from your property. That’s how Dave Meyer, VP of Data and Analytics right here at BiggerPockets, feels.

Dave is currently living in Europe and has invested exclusively in Denver, where he used to call home. Now, as an entirely remote landlord, he’s seen the data on how many markets (like Tampa, Florida) are doing phenomenally for appreciation and rent increases. David Greene, out-of-state investor and the man who literally wrote the book on long-distance real estate investing is here to offer some much-needed council.

With David having the experience as an agent and out-of-state investor and Dave having robust housing data at his disposal, the two come up with some clear plans to invest in up-and-coming markets. David and Dave talk about cash flow, appreciation, wage growth, the investing “spectrum”, and why so many real estate investors aren’t planning far enough ahead.

In This Episode We Cover:

Cash flow vs. appreciation and which one matters most to you

Developing your investment strategy and picking markets where it works

Balancing the benefits of real estate investing and the investing “spectrum”

What makes a market appreciate and cause rents to rise?

What to do once you’ve found a great market to invest in

Questions you should ask every out-of-state agent and property manager

Where Dave and David are both looking to invest

514: BiggerNews, October: How Small Landlords Can Beat the Hedge Funds
01:10:34

Once the housing market started to slide in 2007, smart investors began buying, and waiting, for rock-bottom prices to kick in. Investors were buying homes in some of the best markets for dimes on the dollar, and have seen massive profits whether keeping them as buy-and-hold rentals, BRRRR deals, or flips. While small investors started buying a couple of houses a year, institutional investors were doing far, far more.

Private equity funds, along with REITs and hedge funds knew that foreclosed homes were a steal, and their economies of scale made it even easier to turn these financially mismanaged properties into appreciation and cash flow kings. As institutional investors began fixing up these homes, listing them for rent, and later selling them, the entire market moved in an upward direction. Now, first-time homebuyers are competing with these economic powerhouses to lock down their first primary residence or rental property.

A man who has been covering this topic for years is The Wall Street Journal's, Ryan Dezember. Ryan has a keen understanding of what influences the housing market as a whole, why institutional investors are making the moves they are, and what this means for small mom-and-pop landlords. Dave Meyer also joins David Greene on this episode to discuss the ways small landlords can beat Wall Street at their own game.

In This Episode We Cover:

Why home prices dropped to the lowest point in 2011

How the pandemic gave institutional investors more buying power

Who are the “wall street buyers” that are buying thousands of single-family homes?

Why you should “find the tenant” before finding your next property

The “carbon monoxide” of investing that most investors aren't paying attention to

How institutional investors use economies of scale to rapidly rehab homes

What small investors can do to beat institutional investors at the closing table

And So Much More!

513: Seeing Greene: BRRRR 101 - Loans, Deals, & Cash Flow
00:58:15

Welcome back to another episode of Seeing Greene with BiggerPockets Podcast host, top real estate agent, and BRRRR master himself, David Greene. Today’s episode touches on many topics that relate to the BRRRR strategy, ranging from financingrehabbingcalculating cash flow, and where to find deals.

Since the BRRRR method is such a popular strategy among real estate investors, we thought it best to have an episode that touches on so many aspects of the BRRRR strategy itself. Not only has David written the book on BRRRR investing, but he also continues to do BRRRR investing in his real estate career. This strategy is not only one of the best ways to get into real estate with low (or no) money down, it’s also a method that works on building generational wealth for you in the background.

Have a question you want David to answer on the next Seeing Greene episode? Submit your video submission at Biggerpockets.com/david.

In This Episode We Cover:

Whether you should refinance a BRRRR in your personal name or an LLC

Using agents or wholesalers to find your next BRRRR property

Why some markets simply won’t cash flow (and why that isn’t necessarily a bad thing)

The minimum cash flow requirements for a multifamily property

Hard money loans vs construction loans when performing a BRRRR

How to get financing when your property is not a traditional rental or commercial building

And So Much More!

512: From Losing $150k at the Blackjack Table to 7-Figure Profits in Real Estate
01:08:03

Back in 2004, Jude Bernard was sitting at a blackjack table in Vegas. This wasn’t his first game of the day, nor his second, or even his third. Jude had been sitting at that blackjack table for thirty hours straight. When the final game ended, he walked away, $150,000 poorer than he started. Jude then found the closest tattoo parlor, walked in, and got the phrase “never again” tattooed on his hand as a testament to his mistake.

Now, Jude runs a rental and flipping empire, settling for no less than seven-figure profits on his fix and flips. He also runs The Brooklyn Bank, a non-profit designed to help economically empower people of color in New York City. Through his earlier gambling mistakes, Jude realized that no matter what, the “house” always wins. So, he searched for a way that he could become the “house” in his environment, and the best way was through real estate investing.

Jude has built a very strong foundation for his real estate investing through taking calculated risks, nurturing his relationships, and letting his fears fuel his fire.

Jude is currently raising money to help the people of Haiti through their most recent natural disaster. Brandon and David have both pledged $5,000 each. To help out, even more, Brandon wants all listeners to know that If you donate $5,000 to The Brooklyn Bank organization, Brandon will host you in Maui! For full details please contact Matt@odcfund.com.

In This Episode We Cover:

Purchasing properties in very expensive markets (like New York City)

Building relationships with everyone you talk to, funneling more deals into your pipeline 

Making sure every deal has a seven-figure upside (seriously!)

Using your greatest fears to propel you to the next level 

Gambling addiction and the message behind why the “house” always wins

How the Brooklyn Bank is helping build a pathway out of poverty 

How you can spend a week with Brandon and help support a great cause

And So Much More!

510: Work Less and Make More by “Working the System” w/ Sam Carpenter & Josh Fonger
01:24:03

As an entrepreneur, you may be used to putting in hours of work learning new tactics, skills, and strategies. Your business rests on your shoulders, and why wouldn’t it, you’re the one who built it from the ground up. While it’s a commendable feat to build a profitable business, it can also be a prison sentence for many “hands-on” entrepreneurs. This is how Sam Carpenter, author of Work the System felt as he put in 110 hours a week just to keep his business afloat.

Sam realized why he was working so hard without seeing results: there were no systems in his business. Once he started implementing systems and processes, he went from 110+ hour weeks to 2 hour weeks. The same happened with one of his students and now partner, Josh Fonger, who runs Work the System Enterprises where he helps business owners from over 50 countries scale their businesses with far less headache.

If you’ve ever felt that your business relies on you too much to take a day off, take a vacation, or simply work less every week, these are the two guys you need to talk to. Josh and Sam were kind enough to take three live guest calls on this episode’s recording to help with their specific business problems. As all the guests are real estate investors and professionals, much of the advice may translate to your business as well!

In This Episode We Cover:

Why a system doesn’t need to (and shouldn’t) be complicated to design and implement

Reducing your time, effort, and energy spent on work

Understanding which systems need to be fixed or removed entirely front our life

How to stop playing “whack-a-mole” with your business processes

Why so many businesses fall behind after improving 

Creating a sustainable solution that gives you (the entrepreneur) maximum freedom

509: Cars & Cashflow: Manny Khoshbin’s Story from Homeless to $1B
00:58:43

If you scroll through Manny Khoshbin’s Instagram, you’ll see wealth, success, and a lot of very nice automobiles. You may look at his life and say “well, that must be nice”, but there is much more to Manny than Ferraris and private planes. A few decades ago, Manny was homeless, sleeping in a car with five other family members, simply trying to survive in America.

Manny’s dad wanted to protect his son from entering the military in Iran, so two weeks before Manny’s birthday, the family packed up and left for the United States. They were homeless for a couple of months but slowly were able to find jobs and scrape together some money. Manny worked at a swap meet, a K-mart, a multi-level marketing company selling snacks, and other various jobs.

As he was working he realized that the people driving the Porches, Lamborghinis, and Mercedes were all investing in real estate. After making money in his entrepreneurial endeavors, he bought his first commercial property. Now, two and a half decades later, Manny is sitting on a billion dollars worth of real estate. Oh, and did we mention he bought this all without syndicating?

In This Episode We Cover:

Manny’s “American Dream” story from immigrant to multimillionaire 

Why commercial real estate is such a profitable investment

Value-add opportunities and flipping commercial real estate over the span of a few years

Which real estate industries are on the downward trend (and which to invest in)

The steps new real estate investors should take to make it big

Why Manny’s luxury cars are an investment, not just toys

508: How to 10x Your Deal Flow Using "Evergreen Content"
01:22:35

It’s tough out there. Between investors, agents, and wholesalers, everyone you know wants to get a home under contract. So what do you do when there is an influx of buyers and the same amount of sellers? Start building systems that can beat out your competition and will flow deals directly to you for years to come! Now we know what you’re saying, “I wish that were possible”, but it may be easier than you think. 

Trevor Mauch, founder of Carrot, spent years manually chasing after deals. Cold calling, door knocking, direct mail, and every other method you can imagine; he's tried it. While these strategies work great for many people, they’re labor-intensive and incredibly hard to scale. Trevor looked at the marketing he was doing that WASN’T outbound and realized it wasn’t only creating leads for him, but doing so while he slept.

He then started building out Carrot, which helps set up agents, investors, wholesalers, and anyone else who wants off-market deals with websites that convert consistently every day. What sets apart Carrot from most “we buy houses for cash” websites is their “evergreen content” production. This content ranks you higher on google, gets sellers and buyers reaching out to you, and allows you to do less work and close on more deals.

Learn more about how to make this happen at carrot.com/pockets

In This Episode We Cover:

Getting out of the “hamster wheel” lead generation work 

Outbound vs. inbound marketing and which requires less work from you

Why social media isn’t enough in this heavily digital age 

Building your “authority hubs” so sellers or buyers can trust your business 

Focusing on locations and niche markets to find more buyers and sellers

What Trevor thinks will happen in the housing market over the next few years

507: Sacrifice, Failure and Pain, A 100 Days of Hell Success Story w/The Iron Cowboy
01:08:45

Finishing a triathlon is a grueling achievement, only accomplished by those who are in peak physical and mental condition. Once finished, the top of the top go on to train for an Ironman, arguably the toughest triathlon on the planet. One hundred and forty miles of pain and pressure, broken up into a two-mile swim, a one hundred and twelve-mile bike ride, and a twenty-six-mile run. This is not a race for the faint of heart, and if you can finish just one, you have bragging rights forever.

What would it take for someone to finish not one ironman, not two, not ten, not twenty, but 100 consecutive Ironman races, back to back? Wake up, swim, bike, and run over one hundred and forty miles, go to sleep, and do it all over again. That’s what James “Iron Cowboy” Lawrence did, smashing through world records and personal goals.

James sits down with Brandon and David today to talk about mental toughness, creating goals that scare you, gradually working your way up to mastery, and asking “what am I willing to sacrifice to reach the end?” James had to run a business, take care of his seven-person family, and compete for more than a quarter of a year straight. If he can conquer one of the greatest physical and mental feats the world has ever witnessed, what’s stopping you from accomplishing your goals?

In This Episode We Cover:

Pushing yourself past the limit to see what you’re truly capable of

Breaking multiple world records and developing mental toughness 

Why your goals should scare you enough to pursue them

Why you don’t need to 10x your output and the importance of small steps

Finding what you’re willing to sacrifice to reach your goal

Why every great athlete, entrepreneur, and leader needs a rockstar team 

Choosing the person who “doesn’t break” under hard circumstances

And So Much More!

506: Achieving Financial Freedom Through Small Multifamily Investing
01:17:52

Financial freedom is attainable for all of us, but how fast we reach it differs greatly. You may be making $100 profit per month on each single-family home you buy, but what if you could multiply that profit? A duplex becomes $200 per month, a fourplex, $400, and a 16 unit apartment will net you a solid $1,600 per month. Now, it’s not a goal of buying 50+ single-family homes to reach financial freedom, it’s buying 10 or so small multifamily investments. 

This simple mindset tweak can change your life and investing career forever, it certainly did for Brandon Turner, host of The BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast and author of The Multifamily Millionaire. This pre-recorded webinar walks through the key benefits of investing in small multifamily, how to find and finance deals, risks to look out for, and scaling so you can go full-time in real estate.
