... and Landlord! Rental Real Estate Investing Podcast

Business & Economics Podcasts >

Husband, Father, Entrepreneur, Realtor... a long list of other titles and descriptions... and Landlord! Welcome to the "... and Landlord" Podcast - with Jonathan Taylor ("J.T.") Smith... Following a roadmap to financial Freedom through residential rental real estate. Here you'll learn how adding "... and Landlord" to the litany of titles and descriptions that speak to who you are and what you do may be the greatest opportunity to achieve financial freedom available to the average person today. Where someone else pays the bills (the Tenant) and someone else provides 80% or more of the money (the Bank) and where you get 100% of the cash-flow, all future appreciation and the tax benefits. All on an asset that's insured against loss, and that cannot be worth ZERO short of an Alien Invasion or the Zombie Apocalypse, ultimately resulting in a FREE HOUSE for YOU (the Landlord) - that will kick out cash-flow for the rest of your life and beyond! You try getting any of that from the stock market or your 401K. So be all that you are... and Landlord! No? Scared? Name for me another asset where you can get a low interest 30-year loan for 80% (or more) of the purchase price of that asset, but still get the benefits of being 100% owner. And for which you can get cheap insurance on that asset protecting against losses, including fire, theft, natural disasters, etc... Yet you get 100% of future value appreciation and all of the tax benefits, including mortgage interest deduction, and deduction of rehab / repair and operating expenses, plus phantom deductions like depreciation. All while having everything paid by the Tenant!? But when many people think of Landlords, they may think "Slum-Lord", so it seems Landlords have an image problem. Worse still, many who have considered becoming a Landlord think they'll get calls from Tenants at 2AM reporting their toilet overflowing; or they'll have to fight to collect rent each month... Well, if you're getting calls from Tenants at 2AM or you're fighting to collect rent - YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG! So I'm here to tell you WHY you should be and HOW to become and SUCCEED as a Landlord - how to do it right, so that it builds your wealth and enhances your life (not the other way around). Done right, you'll avoid the stereotypes and problem Tenants while acquiring great cash-flow positive / appreciating properties and have systems, policies and a team in place that will make it all run smoothly - as a business. Real Estate has made more millionaires than any other asset class (by far), and especially in the USA, it provides an opportunity to build wealth and create passive income that should not be dismissed because of misinformation, doubts and fears. I remember when I first started telling people that I wanted to be a Landlord (I would joke saying I wanted to be a "Slum-Lord", but that's just my warped sense of humor) - and inevitably the person would vomit their Landlord Horror Story all over me (or that of a friend or family member). But in listening to such stories for only a few minutes, I would quickly hear the thing that person did wrong (or failed to do right) that was a critical mistake I was convinced I wouldn't have made... I could do it better. And I was right! Being a Landlord is simple, if done right... If operated as a business, with rules and policies never broken, procedures always followed with systems properly utilized and when surrounded by a reliable team. Listening to the "... and Landlord" Podcast will give you insight into these things, and so much more regarding WHY and HOW to become a Landlord running a rental property business that builds your wealth now and for generations to come, while greatly enriching your life with passive income that allows you to pursue your dreams. So again, be all that you are... and Landlord!

What's your WHY? Your reason? Your purpose for getting up every day and going to work? Whether it be at a job where you're employed; or a business you own (self-employed) - why do you do it? Is it just to pay the bills? We all need money, and so is your current endeavor just the way you have of getting it - until some better way comes along? Or is it a means to some greater end? Is there a method to the madness? Or are you just keeping busy (because its what you're expected to do) - until...

How do you feel about debt? I LOVE DEBT! GOOD Debt that is... Debt that benefits me, while being paid back by someone else (my tenants). I don't want debt that I have to pay back - that's BAD debt.

What are your thoughts on money? How do you feel about debt? Are you a person who thinks in terms of "I can't" or "how can I"? The difference between rich and poor (or middle class) may very well exist in the distinction between those two mindsets. Most people would LOVE to be a Real Estate Investor. I've yet to meet the person who says they would NOT want to own Real Estate. I've met people that would rather not be a Landlord, but everyone wants to own Real Estate. But most people will...

BRRRR Might Be The Best Method Of Building Your Rental Property Empire | Ep. #14

6/25/2019
More
Have you ever heard of the BRRRR method of Rental Real Estate Investing? BRRRR Stands for Buy, Rehab (or some may say Renovate), Rent, Refinance, (and to add yet another R) - Repeat. I've used the BRRRR method for all of my rental properties, buying each at some level of distress. And then rehabbing them into cash-flow positive rentals, before refinancing to pull out my invested cash, plus a nice profit - at least for most of them there was profit. Now the idea of buying a distressed...

Avoid Becoming A DIY Landlord | Ep. #13

Back in 2016, I found myself clearing my first (AND LAST) toilet clog in a rental property. It was my 4th property, but numbers 4, 5 and 6 came to me in a very short amount of time. And by the time I got #7, I was officially out of the DIY (Do It Yourself) Landlord life. No more would you find me clearing tenant toilet clogs. I was done handling jammed garbage disposals. I was finished with pest control. NO future maintenance and repair tasks would involve ME - doing anything directly. Over...

So let's talk about your rental lease... Where did you get yours? Did you download it from some random site on the Internet located by searching Google for keywords like "rental lease agreement"? Did you buy it at Office Depot or Staples? Or did you go the professional route and pay an attorney to create a custom lease specific to you and your rental property? First, I don't recommend going the random Internet search route. I also wouldn't buy or use a lease from anywhere, unless it is...

Should Landlords Avoid Section 8 Tenants? | Ep. #10

5/28/2019

So let's talk Section 8! There's an Eight Ball on the cover image of this episode for a reason. All too often Landlords effectively "Black Ball" Section 8 voucher holders. When a person with a Section 8 voucher calls to inquire about a listed rental home and they begin to ask that question of the Landlord... "Do you accept Section 8 vouchers?" - All to often, it may seem to the prospective Tenant as if the Landlord barely waits for them to finish asking the question before beginning to...

In this, the 8th Episode of the [... and Landlord] Rental Real Estate Investing Podcast, I discuss how vacancy kills rental cashflow; and therefore how to avoid vacancy. On this topic of avoiding rental vacancy, I discuss such things as making sure that your existing tenant leaves on terms that are favorable to your finding a new tenant BEFORE they're gone. This includes having a requirement of 45 days notice to end tenancy (not 30 days unless mandated by law). Also, having it stated in...

Books have played a critical roll in my Real Estate success since starting in 2015. I once had negative thoughts towards so-called "Self-Help" books, or those on Mindset, Business or Money & Finances. But once I actually allowed myself to read the first, I was hooked. As I've expressed before, that book was Rich Dad Poor Dad, and it changed the way I looked at both money and myself. Some time later I read Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant, and it changed the way I looked at my business and how...

In 2019, maybe more than ever before - you need to be able to evaluate properties, market for deals, negotiate with sellers, and have reliable funding in place to close. As I've mentioned before, I started my Real Estate Investing career in 2015, which admittedly was a better time to have started than 2019. In fact, I'd say I was about 5 years late. Had I started in 2010, its possible I'd have 10 times the number of properties as I do now. But like the Chinese Proverb says... "The best time...

Financial Freedom... Yes, it is a buzzword, but it is also a most precious thing to be sought-after with all your effort. But are you really giving it ALL your effort?
