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!

Ep. #9 | Rental Property Advertising - How To Make Your Rental Home Stand Out From The Crowd

5/21/2019
More
This (9th) Episode of the [... and Landlord] Rental Real Estate Investing Podcast is titled "Rental Property Advertising - How To Make Your Rental Home Stand Out From The Crowd". So in this episode, I go into things such as posting enticing pictures (lots of them), and making sure that your main exterior and kitchen (or kitchen and living-room) pictures are amazing. These can be taken with a SmartPhone, but you need to know what you're doing and have proper lighting - otherwise, go pro and...

Ep. #8 | Don't Let Vacancy Kill Your Rental Cashflow

5/14/2019
More
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...

Ep. #7 | Books Every Real Estate Investor Should Read

5/7/2019
More
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...

Ep. #6 | Evaluate, Market, Negotiate & Fund – What It Takes To Succeed As A Real Estate Investor In 2019

4/30/2019
More
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...

Ep. #5 | Expanding On The Cashflow Quadrant - Diversify Your Income For Wealth & Financial Freedom

4/23/2019
More
In this episode (#5) of the [... and Landlord] Podcast, I expand on something I touched on briefly in the prior episode (#4) related to Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant, which is a book by Robert T. Kiyosaki. I relate my own positioning within the Cashflow Quadrant and what you may wish to make your goals for the same - and why. I highly recommend that you read this 2nd book in the Rich Dad series (after reading the 1st, Rich Dad Poor Dad) - as together, they are greatly helpful in setting the...

Ep. #4 | My Cashflow Quadrants & What Are You Willing To Sacrifice To Achieve Financial Freedom?

4/16/2019
More
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? Are you even giving it SOME effort? Most people think they are, when they really are NOT - or worse, don't even think about it at all. Which is sad, because you're not likely to stumble into financial freedom. Sure, I buy a lottery ticket here and there, but that's not my plan for financial freedom. I've learned that to...

Ep. #3 | The First 3 Things I Had To Learn How To Do For Purchasing My First Rental Property

4/12/2019
More
Rental Real Estate Investing is simple, but its not necessarily easy... And making your first purchase can be downright scary. I've already related in the prior episode that my journey into being a Landlord started with reading the book, Rich Dad / Poor Dad. This episode relates more of this story focusing on what I had to learn how to do in order to make that first purchase happen. Hint... It all relates to evaluating properties and what goes into that process, so that you will know if you...

This episode of the [... and Landlord] Podcast tells my story of being on a cruise, reading the book Rich Dad / Poor Dad, and finding my first property a few months later, to add... and Landlord - to my other titles of Husband, Father and Entrepreneur (Realtor would come later that same year). It was March / April of 2015 and I was on a 7 day cruise to Bonaire, Grand Turk (and other destinations) with my wife and son (at the time age 7), along with two other couples who are close friends...
