In addition to the "In the News" segment, we have a troublesome call on our landlord hotline. We discuss the issues at hand and how to handle an angry tenant that is trying to destroy your rental property.

Steve and Eric reminisce about some of their favorite episodes. They play a short clip from each of their favorites and talk about what they loved so much about each episode. Thanks for being a part of this journey!
Marty has done a lot with real estate including getting his realtors license, investing in flips, rentals and building his own rent to own website. In this podcast he shares his insights and how his passion and direction has changed.
Some landlords will begin to dabble with note investing and the idea sounds interesting. Make income without the headaches typically associated with owning rental properties. We pick Tracy’s brain on note investing and what a new investor should be aware of.
Mike is a mountain of a man. Standing at 6’8” and 300 lbs (we’re guessing because it’s rude to ask) he is originally from New Zealand. He then went to play professional rugby in Europe before playing college football at Hawaii. After landing in Buffalo, NY he got his degree in architecture. We pick his brain about questions on real estate and how to make a home habitable for aging individuals. Mike stopped in the office and was a great guest.
A reoccuring theme on the podcast is to “treat it like a business.” This comes up quite a bit on this episode as Scott shares the common pitfalls that stop a property manager from scaling their business. He explains there are certain character traits that allow someone the ability to scale their operations.
J. shares how he started out with an eBay business that transitioned well into wholesaling properties. From there he has dealt with apartments, SFH, commercial and even buying and leasing a cellphone tower.
We were out in Lansing, MI giving a talk at a landlord association and Doug was one of the members of the audience. He had some great insights so we decided to have him on the podcast to share his story of how he grew from 0 units to 81.
The hardest deal is the first property. Michael says you’ll spend more time buying that first two unit compared to the 50 unit you’re going to buy a few years later. That’s because you’ll have the systems in place and trust from your investors to make a sizable profit.
It’s ironic that term the “grey area” is ambiguous in its own spelling. Is it “grey” or “gray?” We suppose it depends on where you’re from. Either way, wear and tear is a grey area for many landlords so in this episode we’re going to discuss exactly how to handle these situations with kids and tenants with disabilities. Listen in as we have attorney Don Krupens of Lawvex.com shed some light on this confusing subject.
Clayton is a former TV host who left the business young so he could pursue real estate. He has a podcast called "Investing In Real Estate" and a great following of investors.
He talks about the freedom number that you need to figure out in order to understand how many rentals you'd need to support your lifestyle.
Listen in as he shares details about his formula and advice on investing in real estate in 2018.
Recently we came across a blog post on https://optionalpha.com/ talking about how to reinvest income in rental properties through a snowball philosophy.
When we reached out to the author he said we needed to interview him and his wife together. Turns out his wife runs the blog over at http://rentalrookie.com/ and they have a treasure trove of resources for investors.
Emily and Kirk have a great story and are well on their way to building their real estate empire. We interview them to...
Mark is a busy guy who has his hands in rentals, flips, commercial and also building out his educational site at https://investfourmore.com/
We had him on the podcast because he has such a diverse range of experience. We're impressed with his ability to grow and build a team that allows him to get so many deals done each year.
He has a podcast, books and online community of real estate investors.
Check out all the education and resources he has waiting for you at...
