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

5/17/2022
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? Building a rental property can seem like a great way to minimize acquisition costs, but this is only true in certain circumstances, which many investors just won’t fit into. Welcome to Live Takes where Henry...

5/15/2022
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?

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

5/12/2022
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...

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

5/10/2022
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...

606: Seeing Greene: The “Base Hit” Rental Properties That Will Make You Rich

5/8/2022
If you’re looking to buy rental properties, build a real estate portfolio, and level up your wealth?—you’re in the right place. But, as the housing market stays red hot, it can be a struggle for both new and old investors to know where to look for their next cash flow or appreciation play. Do you stick with on-market properties that may be easier to come by but with serious competition, or do you go the off-market property route and look for distressed, yet overlooked properties. Get...

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

5/5/2022
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...

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

5/3/2022
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...

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

5/1/2022
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,...

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

4/28/2022
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...

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

4/26/2022
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...

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

4/21/2022
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...

4/19/2022
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...

4/17/2022
Should you pay off debt or invest in real estate? Whether 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. Is there a right move to make, or are we stuck treading water without enough financial traction to stick to? Hear answers to this question...

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?

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

4/12/2022
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...

4/10/2022
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...

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

4/7/2022
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,...

4/5/2022
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...

4/3/2022
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...
