Flipping America 620, Invest in Industrial with Jonathan Hayek

2/28/2024
Have you ever driven through a business park with street after street of rather non-descript buildings holding all sorts of businesses and wondered, “who owns this real estate?” Today you’re going to meet the man who does. Well - he doesn’t own them all, but he makes his living owning some of them. The cool thing is - you could be doing this too. Today we will talk about how. While working as a public school teacher, Jonathan began investing in real estate with only a few dollars. Through grit and creative strategies, he flipped single family homes to build a portfolio of small multifamily properties. Now using real estate to fuel his lifestyle of family time and playing in the mountains, Jonathan now invests in larger commercial assets, preferring triple net industrial properties. He enjoys inspiring others, speaking about the freedom that real estate can provide, traveling, and ultra running.

Flipping America 619, Slow Flips with Scott Jelinek

2/14/2024
In the end it’s all about cash flow. Flipping is a business that requires your time and presence. Landlording comes with its own set of challenges. How about something that provides cash flow from real estate, but is truly mailbox money? Since 2019 I have been buying super inexpensive houses that need a little work and selling them as-is with seller financing. I’m talking about buying for around $10,000 and selling for $40,000. This model was the rationale for forming the Flipping America Buyers Club. By 2022, with no bank foreclosures for 2 years due to the pandemic, inventory was running low and prices were going up, so it was time to re-think the process. Due to the short pay-back schedule on the previous model, the numbers just didn’t work any longer. So I began to look at the alternatives. The idea is fairly simple. If I can buy a house at a substantial discount and sell it with financing for close to a retail price with seller financing, my actual return will be higher than the interest rate I’m charging. For example. Let’s say you buy a house for $30,000. If you were to sell it for $30,000 and charge 9% interest, your return would be…9%. What if you sold it for $50,000? Your return on that $30,000 investment goes up to around 15%. So I tried a few of these and guess what? It works! And there are buyers out there. Then I found a guy who has been doing this for years - he has even written a book on the subject. His name is Scott Jelinek and today we are going to talk about this fantastic way to make income in real estate.

Flipping America 602, Choose Wealth

7/19/2023
Life is full of choices. One of them is to make enough in real estate investing to quit your day job, let your wife quit her day job, live off of the passive income and travel somewhere monthly. Yes my friends, that IS one of your possible choices. My guest today, Jesse LeBlanc did just that. And we are going to talk about it in just a couple of minutes. Jesse is the founder of Wholesalers Transactional Funding, Exigo Management & Wholesalers KPI. He’s been a full time Real Estate Investor. Before that he was a Police Officer for DeKalb County in the Atlanta area. And before that he was what he calls a Corporate Dropout as a Marketing Analyst and a Financial Analyst. He retired his wife from her W2 jobs at the start of 2022, giving them time to travel at least once a month while Jesse continues building his rental portfolio and doing Transactional Lending. He focuses more of his time these days on Transactional Lending for wholesalers who need lending for their double closings. He lends to wholesalers nationwide. He also has referrals for private lenders if the wholesaler is looking to "wholetail" a deal vs double close. You can choose a job where the most challenging thing you’ll have to do all day is calculate how much change to give a person when the cash register breaks down. Or you can choose to work 60-70 hours a week for a chance to be recognized in a big corporation and maybe get ahead. Or you can choose - well virtually anything if you live in the USA. But you can ALSO choose to pursue a well established course to financial freedom and live the life that most people only dream of. This life is possible for every person listening to my voice. It’s NOT possible for every person - some just don’t have what it takes. But if you are motivated enough to listen to this and smart enough to find it, you have what it takes. Listen to my conversation with this amazing friend and know that you can do it too.
