 Interview with my Student Andy About Airbnb Rentals | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2873

On this podcast episode, I interview my student Andy Saintilus and we talk about his success as a real estate investor, and how and why he transitioned from long term rentals to short term rentals. Andy is just 33 years old. He attended his first real estate training event with me around 5 or 6 years ago. Shortly after that, he signed up for my one on one coaching program. Over the past 5 years, Andy has purchased 10 rental properties in Miami using the Buy, Repair, Rent and Refinance strategy (BRRR). I loaned him the money on all 10 properties - which is one of the benefits of my coaching program. In the past few years, he has transitioned his long term Section 8 rentals into short term vacation rentals that are listed on Airbnb. He now has all 10 properties in Miami listed as short term rentals on Airbnb. Andy now generates over $50,000 a month in income from Airbnb. He has also increased his net worth by almost 2 million dollars. And he is only 33 years old! In November, Andy quit his corporate job for good. He now has a life of financial freedom. His story is truly inspiring. If you are a new real estate investor, listen to his story and get the motivation and inspiration that you need to start learning how to buy rental properties with other people's money using the buy, repair, rent and refinance strategy. Andy will be at our Airbnb and Short Term Rentals Boot Camp next weekend. If you want to attend call our office at (561) 948-2127

 The Opportunity in Bank Owned Properties | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1021

On today's podcast episode, I talk about the opportunity that will be created as a result of the ending of the foreclosure moratorium. The Foreclosure Moratorium ended in September 2021, however the CDC recommended that banks not pursue homeowners in foreclosure until the end of the 2021. Most banks waited until the end of last year. Many States require a 120 day "grace period" before the bank can sue or foreclosure on an individual that is not paying their mortgage. That expired at the end of April 2022. So we are now going to see many homeowners who have not been paying their mortgages start receiving notices of default (NOD) or Lis Pendens (foreclosure lawsuit). The net result is that many of these homeowners will have to face some hard realities. They will have to either sell their home or lose it to foreclosure. These homeowners who have not been paying their mortgage (some since March of 2000) are going to have only 3 choices which are: 1. Have the bank agree to a loan modification 2. Sell their home before the bank takes it 3. Don't pay and lose their home to foreclosure The net effect is that we should be seeing more inventory from these pre-foreclosures, as well as more short sales, and more homeowners listing their home for sale on Zillow. The end result will be foreclosure auctions at the court house which turn into bank owned properties. In many ways, this is a perfect storm. Interest rates have increased by 2 percent in just the past few months. War and inflation have created havoc in the financial markets. It will be very hard for real estate to remain resilient in the face of all this. I anticipate more foreclosures, more short sales and ultimately more bank owned properties. The net result will be more inventory along with less demand. As an investor, you should start by learning how the foreclosure process works in your State and you should start marketing to motivated homeowners that in foreclosure. This is also a good time for you to learn how to buy pre-foreclosures, and how to complete a short sale package. Start learning how to buy bank owned properties and get familiar with the sites that banks use to liquidate these properties. The opportunity is coming. Are you going to be ready?

 Understanding Financial Freedom | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1620

On today's podcast I talk about understanding financial freedom, the velocity of money and how these concepts are both related to your mindset about money. If you could buy a rental property today for $100,000, that was rented to a tenant that paid you $1,000 per month in rent, and your cost to maintain that property was $1,000 per month would you buy it? Unfortunately, for most new investors, the answer would be no. Would you feel like you were not getting a return on your money if the property was just breaking even? Most people would feel that way. And that is because they don't understand the velocity of money. Let's look what would happen with that same property if you had a 15 year fixed rate mortgage. In just 15 years, the property would be paid off, and you would own it free and clear (with no mortgage). 15 years later, not only would the value of the property double to $200,000, but the rents would double as well (from $1,000 to $2,000). And if you owned that property free and clear most of that $2,000 rent would be going directly into your pocket. How many properties like that would you need to own in order for you to be financially free? If you owned just 5 properties, then in 15 years you would have $10,000 per month coming in. And you would have enough income to replace the income from your job so you would not need to work (if you didn't want to). Look at it another way. How would you save up $200,000 and create an income stream of $2,000 a month if you did not buy that rental property? Also keep in mind that the above is before you take into account the tax benefits of owning those rental properties. Each property that you purchase, will lower the amount of taxes that you pay. The reason for this is because the property taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs, and depreciation are all tax deductible. So even though the property is 'breaking even" as far as taxes are concerned it is losing money. A large part of that is because of depreciation. And that means that you will pay less taxes. So the real question is not "can you afford to buy a rental property". But rather can you afford to NOT buy a rental property? You work hard at your job and right now you have taxes taken out of your paycheck and you have no control over your tax situation. Owning just one rental property would change that since you would now be able to deduct the expenses related to that property. If you add up the benefits of the increase in the value of the real estate, increase in rental income and tax deductions, then you will see that investing in rental properties is one of the easiest ways to create financial freedom.

 Exit Strategies in Real Estate | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1777

On today's podcast episode, I talk about exit strategies in real estate. I find that too many educators and real estate podcasts out there are focusing on the acquisition strategy and finding properties. While finding deals is important, I think it's equally important to understand what to do with a property once you own it. Ironically, what you plan on doing with the property once you own it, is directly related to finding properties. If you know what you are looking for, then you know where to search and what to search for. This is the biggest mistake I see new real estate investors make. They are not sure what they are looking for. Once you identify the type of property that you want, then you can focus on the exit strategies which are: *Buying Rental Properties For Wealth *Selling Rentals with Owner Financing *Selling Rentals with Rent to Own *Fixing and Flipping The Property *Airbnb & Short Term Rentals Ultimately, if your goal is to create wealth and financial freedom, then you should focus on buying rentals and short term rentals. Holding real estate long term is what will make you wealthy.

 Buying Houses on Terms | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1136

On today's episode, I talk about buying houses on terms. This is a follow up to our previous podcast episode, which spoke about the Novations Strategy. If you have not already listened to that episode I encourage you to do so. In today's market, if you are doing direct to seller marketing, you are going to be facing sellers who know that the market is hot and know that they can get top dollar. You are going to encounter many scenarios where the seller wants a retail price or close to retail, and as a cash investor you simply cannot pay that much. If you are paying cash, you are typically buying properties at around 70 cents on the dollar. Usually you are using a hard money or private lender to buy properties for cash and because the rates are high, you have to buy at a significant discount for the deal to make sense. But is there a case for you to buy properties at a higher price like 80 to 90 cents on the dollar? There may be, if there is existing financing in place and the rate is very low on that financing. The two strategies that I talk about today are both "buying houses on terms" strategies. I use current examples of seller leads that we are currently working on in our office so that you can see how this works with real life scenarios. On this episode I show you examples of buying a house subject to the existing mortgage and also buying a house with seller financing.

 Novations with Eric Brewer | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5073

On today's podcast episode I invited my friend Eric Brewer, who is a member of my Collective Genius Mastermind to talk about Novations. I first heard Eric talking about Novations a few years ago, at one of our mastermind meetings. Since then, I have seen many of my friends from the mastermind implement this method in their own real estate investing. This strategy is perfect for deals where the seller wants more than you are willing to pay. It also allows you to earn bigger spreads. Eric explains how to use this novation method. There are a lot of golden nuggets in this episode! Make sure you take lots of notes.

 Foreclosures, Short Sales & Bank Owned Properties | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1382

On today's podcast episode, I talk about investing in foreclosures, short sales and bank owned properties. The Federal Eviction Moratorium and the Foreclosure Moratorium both recently expired (as of September 2021). Current government guidelines recommend that banks and mortgage servicers try to "work out" and negotiate with homeowners that are delinquent on their mortgage. Banks are able to modify the terms of the loan, can decrease interest rates, increase loan term, or add money owed to the back end of the loan. Many homeowners have taken advantage of forbearance options and will be able to modify their loan. However, homeowners that are delinquent on their mortgage and cannot pay will be facing foreclosure. There are currently millions of homeowners who are delinquent on their mortgage and not in forbearance. I anticipate that 2022 will be the year of foreclosures. Many of these homeowners will not be able to make their mortgage payments and the banks and mortgage service companies will be forced to file foreclosure notices. I anticipate that this will result in an increase in foreclosures as well as an increase in short sales and bank owned properties down the line. This will be an excellent opportunity for real estate investors. It is imperative that you learn NOW how to market to homeowners in foreclosure, how to negotiate a short sale, and how to bid on and buy bank owned properties on online auction sites. I would also recommend that you learn about the foreclosure process in your State so that you are knowledgeable enough to talk to sellers that are in foreclosure. Marketing to homeowners in foreclosure will be a tremendous opportunity in 2022.

 The Opportunity in Short Term Rentals and Airbnb | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 866

On today's podcast episode I talk about the opportunity in short term rentals and Airbnb. Over the past 2 years, some of my students have transitioned from rental properties and section 8 rentals to Airbnb. And the opportunity in short term rentals is something that you need to pay very close attention to. As an example, my student Andy had a Section 8 Rental Property in Miami that was generating around $2,200 per month. When the tenant moved out, he decided to turn the rental property into a short term Airbnb rental. That same property now generates north of $8,000 per month. Over the past 12 months he has been converting all of his rental properties to Airbnb. He is only 32 years old and he is already financially free. My student Davidson purchased a property on the West Coast of Florida in Lehigh Acres that he was originally intending on fixing and flipping. I encouraged him to explore the opportunity of keeping it as a short term rental. His listing just went live yesterday and in the first 24 hours he had 17 days in December booked, as well as this weekend and next week booked too. His booking revenue is already at 3 times what that same house would rent for. Another student of mine Kadi with her brother Dale are now working on their 3rd Airbnb property in Palm Bay, Florida. When we showed the examples of these students at our most recent Fixing and Flipping Houses Boot Camp everyone in the room wanted to get into an Airbnb! If you are a real estate investor, you should consider investing in this short term rental space. If your financial freedom number is $20,000 per month, and one Airbnb generates $5,000 per month, then you would need just 4 Airbnb's to be Financially Free! There are many advantages of Airbnb to a regular rental property including: 1. cash flow of up to 3 times as much (or more) 2. Your property is not being trashed by tenants 3. Utility of being able to use the property yourself with your out of town guests 4. Your Airbnb could be your "retirement" 5. Financial Freedom sooner We are converting more and more of our students to Airbnb. You should definitely explore this opportunity. The buy side when you purchase the property looks the same. You are buying a wholesale deal at a wholesale price. But once you have purchased the property, you could choose to keep it as a rental, fix and flip it - or keep it as a short term Airbnb rental. If your property is located in a decent middle class neighborhood you should definitely explore the Airbnb option.

 Understanding Rental Property Returns | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1738

On this podcast episode I talk about rental property returns and the components that make up the rental income and the rental expenses. As an example, I use a typical 3 bedroom 2 bathroom house that could be purchased for $250,000 in Port St Lucie FL. This house could be rented for $1,800 which would represent an annual gross rental income of $21,600. I break down the expenses on a property like this to show you how the rental income and expenses would be broken out in order to arrive at your net rental income (which is your real return). Gross Annual Income $21,600 Property Taxes $4,000 Property Insurance $3,000 Repairs & Maintenance $1,800 Vacancies and Evictions $1,800 Property Management $2,160 Net Rental Income $8,840. If you were to purchase this property for the price of $250,000 and you paid cash, then your return of $8,840 on a $250,000 would return you only 3.5% on your cash. Now granted that's better than a CD in the bank, but it's still a low return. So why invest in real estate? The answers are: 1. Appreciation 2. Tax Deductions 3. Leverage 4. Cash Flow 5. Creating Long Term Wealth and Ultimately, creating Financial Freedom. If you really want to leverage your returns and put your wealth creation on steroids, then you need to find properties at way below market prices. I use an example of a probate property on this podcast, but to find deals like this you need to be marketing to motivated sellers like people in foreclosure, vacant properties, tired landlords, inherited properties and probates (the example I use on this episode).

 Wholesaling Real Estate & Finding Deals | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1643

On today's podcast episode I talk about why every real estate investor needs to know how to find wholesale deals. Even if you don't want to be a wholesaler, you should still know how to deploy the method that wholesalers use to find deals. If you are a landlord looking for a rental property you are looking for a wholesale deal at a wholesale price. If you are a rehabber looking for a fix and flip or your next Airbnb, you are looking for a wholesale deal at a wholesale price. And if you don't know how to find these deals, then you are paying a wholesaler a fee of $10,000 to $20,000 (or more) for each and every property that you buy. It would benefit you to learn how wholesalers find deals and to employ some of their tactics of finding deals directly from motivated sellers so that you can cut out the "middle man". On this podcast episode I talk about how wholesalers use different ways of marketing to motivated sellers to find deals. I discuss motivated seller marketing, text marketing, direct mail, pay per click, bandit signs and Facebook. Regardless of whether you want to be a full time wholesaler, a part time wholesaler, a landlord, or a rehabber, you will need to know how to find deals. If you don't then you will always be paying more for every house that you buy.

 Wholesaling Interview with Jon Carcone | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2318

On today's podcast episode, I interview my good friend Jon Carcone about Wholesaling, and how he runs and operates his wholesaling Business. Jon runs a very impressive Wholesaling Business in Washington DC which is completely virtual. He has created systems and processes for his wholesaling business that allow him to operate his business with virtual employees in multiple locations. Jon shares with us how he transitioned from a fixing and flipping business that was generating $400,000 a year to a wholesaling business that made over $500,000 gross profit last month. He talks about moving from his "comfort zone" to massively scaling his business. Year to date he has generated 2.2 million in Gross Profit from Wholesaling. I know many wholesalers, but not many that have those types of profit numbers which are phenomenal for a wholesaling business. He shared his story about the transition as he moved from purchasing on market deals on the MLS to moving towards direct to seller marketing with direct mail. He discusses transitioning from mailing 5,000 to 10,000 mail pieces to sending out 50,000 mail pieces in one mailing and the dramatic effect that had on the number of leads that he was getting. When you are getting 300 leads a month, it's not hard to turn many of those leads into deals. But you have to be marketing big to make that happen. Jon discusses seller pain points, and how lead managers screen pretty hard for multiple pain points when booking appointments. They don't go on every appointment like many companies do. They only book appointments where the seller is truly motivated to sell at a discount. He also talks about his 70% closing rate on appointments which is almost unheard of in this business (most companies are at around 20%). He shares with us how he transitioned from single family homes to mobile home parks and self storage facilities. He used the same direct to seller marketing principles with direct mail from single family homes to refine his approach to marketing to owners of mobile home parks. He also shares how it took him over a year to get his first Mobile Home Park. Today he owns over 1,000 units. There are a lot of amazing nuggets in this podcast interview. If you are a seasoned wholesaler, or are just getting started, either way, I would listen to it with a notepad in hand and take lots of notes. You can learn a lot from today's interview. Mostly you can learn that you should stop playing small.

 Buying Rental Properties | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1791

On today's podcast episode I talk about buying rental properties. One of the most common questions I get from students is whether or not now is a good time to buy a rental property. The answer is yes. It's always a good time to buy a rental property as long as you can satisfy two criteria. 1. The property must cash flow from day one 2. You are buying the property at a discount With today's low interest rates where 30 year fixed mortgages are at 3%, and 15 year fixed mortgages are at 2.3%, it's an absolute no brainer to buy a rental property. The tax deductions and cash flow that you get from owning a rental property, along with the long term appreciation are some of the benefits of owning a rental property. Another benefit is that it's a great hedge against inflation. But by far, the fact that you will ultimately own the property free and clear and have no mortgage, is the real benefit of owning a rental property. Once you have no mortgage, the rental property will pay you income for the rest of your life. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that investing in a rental property is a smart decision. If you have a job and decent credit you should definitely buy a rental property. However, it is much more beneficial for you to learn how to buy rental properties at a substantial discount to market value so that you create "instant equity". And you won't find properties like this on the MLS. You will need to target and market to motivated sellers directly in order to find the best most discounted deals. I recommend that you market to tired and disgruntled landlords, absentee landlords, pre-foreclosure and foreclosure, probate and inherited properties, as well as vacant, boarded up and abandoned properties.

 Eviction And Foreclosure Moratoriums | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1134

On today's episode I talk about the current situation with the eviction and foreclosure moratoriums. The eviction moratorium will be ending this month, and the foreclosure moratorium will be ending by the end of 2021. How will this affect you as a real estate investor? One of the biggest issues over the past year has been that there has been no inventory for investors. Usually, there is a steady supply of foreclosures and short sales and disgruntled landlords that want to sell their properties. However with the moratoriums in place, landlords could not evict non paying tenants, and banks could not evict non paying borrowers. This created a situation where foreclosures and REO's that would have been listed on the market were not listed since the federal government effectively prohibited banks from foreclosing on borrowers. Landlords that had non paying tenants could not evict their tenants because of the eviction moratorium. There are an anticipated 9 to 10 million renters that have not been paying their rent. There are another 5 million homeowners that are not paying their mortgage. 15% of FHA Mortgages are currently in default. How will the expiration of the eviction and foreclosure moratoriums affect prices for you as a real estate investor? I anticipate that the expiration of these moratoriums will create more inventory and more sellers. I also think that this will possibly slow down and maybe even lower prices. This increase in inventory and price softening will make it easier for real estate investors to find inventory. Focus on marketing to tired and disgruntled landlords, pre-foreclosure and foreclosure lists, and homeowners that have not paid their property taxes. This is a great time to learn about investing in foreclosures and short sales. Make sure you understand how the foreclosure and short sale process works so that you can take advantage of the increase in foreclosures.

 Finding Private Lenders | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1087

On today's podcast episode I talk about finding private lenders. One of the biggest misconceptions that new real estate investors have is that they think finding private lenders is difficult. It's not difficult, in fact there are literally trillions of dollars sitting in people's checking accounts, money market accounts and savings accounts. The trick is persuading people with money to lend their money to you. Private lenders will need to know you, like you and trust you. But they will also need to feel confident that you know what you are doing and that they are going to get their money back and not lose any money. And the best way to get them to feel confident in you is for them to watch you over time doing deals and borrowing from private lenders and hard money lenders. Once they feel confident in your ability, they will be willing to lend you money to buy real estate.

 Why Some Students Succeed and Some Fail | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2768

On this podcast episode I talk about the difference between students that succeed and students that fail. I was reviewing some students that were purchasing their first rental property in the past few weeks. I asked myself: "Why are these students managing to buy their first property while other students are still struggling? And that is what this podcast episode is about. Learning about real estate, systems, techniques, processes and software is NOT what will make you successful. The key is to IMPLEMENT what you learn by taking action. I have found with many of my students that they self sabotage themselves by having self limiting beliefs. The first step to success is to get rid of these self limiting beliefs. That is why I am such a big fan of my students reading books by Jim Rohn, Tony Robbins, Napoleon Hill etc. If you want to achieve success you have to first: 1. create a goal 2. have a clear and concise vision of that goal 3. figure out how you will achieve that goal 4. IMPLEMENT (take action) Enjoy the podcast!
