EP442 Megatrends in Real Estate Investing with Kurt Carlton

6/17/2024
Today we’re going to talk about some of the major trends that will affect real estate investing over the next decade. We all know there’s a housing shortage in the U.S., but how does this offer local investors a special advantage? Demographics play an important role, with Gen Z leading a youth movement that has created a visible shift in the market. With over 15 million vacant homes in this country, could those properties help solve the housing shortage? If so, how can investors get access to them? We’ll be discussing these topics and trends today with Kurt Carlton, the Co-Founder and President of New Western - the largest home buyer in the United States.

EP440 Zombie Loans Are Back with Shante Duffy

6/3/2024
After the housing crash in 2008, millions of struggling homeowners asked for loan modifications with their lenders. Many of these homeowners were relieved to find out that their lender was willing to forgive their 2 mortgage as part of the modification process. That was all well and good, and it saved borrowers hundreds, if not thousands, in monthly payments. But now those loans are coming back to haunt them, and the investment groups that bought up those loans for pennies on the dollar are foreclosing on them in order to sell the property at a profit. There are few people who understand this strategy better than my guest today. Shante Duffy is a trusted expert in the note space, and she’s going to help us understand this strategy from the investor’s point of view and offer suggestions to homeowners who might find themselves in this situation.

We recorded this exciting panel on boutique hotels and resorts at the recent 2024 Midwest Real Estate Investor Conference.

Jeremy Garcia and his wife Melanie own quite a few vacation rentals in Muskegon Michigan, and several years ago we partnered on building out an 8-unit boutique hotel in downtown Muskegon. We also acquired a 7-cabin, 3-house resort in North Muskegon with beautiful Lake Michigan frontage. And we’ve started our own short-term rental property management company called DreamStay – go to www.bookdreamstay.com Alex Jarbo lives in Asheville, North Carolina and is a writer on short-term rentals for Bigger Pockets.
