    5 Keys to Becoming a Millionaire on Less Than $100k Per Year

    5 Keys to Becoming a Millionaire on Less Than $100k Per Year

    You may know Ashley Kehr from the Real Estate Rookie Podcast, but you may not know that only a short time ago she was a rookie herself. Ashley started as a property manager for a local investor and slowly made her way from owning one property to owning thirty-three long-term rentals, a short-term arbitrage property, two commercial units, and one mobile home park. Quite a diverse portfolio!

    What makes this even more impressive is that Ashley wasn’t coming into real estate with boatloads of cash. In fact, she and her husband have never collectively made more than six figures from their W2 jobs. So how does someone with a median income generate such a massive amount of cash flow, appreciation, and time freedom?

    Ashley discusses the five fundamentals of real estate investing that led her to seven-figure net worth. These fundamentals can be used by anyone, at any stage in real estate investing, no matter their experience level. If you’re ready to supercharge your investing and go from rookie to rockstar, commit to the game plan Ashley has laid out!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How to invest in real estate while making a median income 

    Diversifying your portfolio so you have multiple exit strategies and streams of income

    Why every investor needs to “become a rookie all over again”

    Using creative financing to structure deals that benefit the buyer and seller

    Leveraging partnerships to find cash, divvy up responsibilities, and purchase more real estate

    Owning a business and learning the skills that every leader needs to succeed

    And So Much More!

    5 Pitfalls When Buying These “Crazy Cash Flow” Properties

    5 Pitfalls When Buying These “Crazy Cash Flow” Properties

    Avery Carl is the go-to contact for short-term rental investing. Her business, The Short Term Shop and The Mortgage Shop not only helps find properties and secure loans for prospective short-term rental investors but also helps guide investors through their first vacation property purchase. While this type of property can be a cash flow king, it also takes more management and a bit more time upfront to get the system oiled and operating smoothly.

    Since we last talked to Avery, she’s quadrupled her portfolio from twenty-something short-term units to ninety-six units, sixty-one of which are large multifamily properties. Avery gives an in-depth analysis on why short-term rentals should hold a place in every investor's asset collection, and the common pitfalls investors go through when purchasing their first short-term rental.

    If you’d like to learn more about building wealth through short-term rental investing, grab Avery’s brand new book Short-Term Rental, Long-Term Wealth!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Why having short-term rentals can help real estate investors mitigate risk

    How Avery added over seventy more doors to her portfolio in under two years

    The wrong vs. the right questions to ask when buying a short-term rental

    The five things people need to avoid when making their first STR purchase

    Why you may want to “bear-proof” your next cabin in the woods

    Not being afraid to ask questions when investing

    Why you should buy Avery’s new book Short-Term Rental, Long-Term Wealth

    And So Much More!

    Are You an Asset or Liability to Those in Your Life? w/ Earn Your Leisure

    Are You an Asset or Liability to Those in Your Life? w/ Earn Your Leisure

    Everyone knows that financial education is one of the most crucial things to teach children at a young age. It doesn't just set them up to be wealthy, but it gives them the tools to be confident, choose delayed gratification, and hopefully, impact another young person’s life one day. This is understood wholeheartedly by Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, former financial advisor and school teacher.

    What had started as a small classroom experiment in teaching children financial literacy turned into a media empire. Rashad and Troy shared their class teachings online, which pushed them to create a course for the kids, and later into the Earn Your Leisure podcast, where they talk about everything ranging from high-value financial concepts to sports to entertainment and more.

    What keeps Rashad and Troy going is knowing that their work is allowing thousands of people to improve their life situations, whether children or adults. The duo not only talks extensively about the difference between financial assets and liabilities but about relationship assets and liabilities. This helps answer the question: who’s helping bring you up and who’s trying to keep you down?

    In This Episode We Cover:

    The importance of spurring on financial literacy for young kids 

    How to teach your children about money and examples you can use

    The role that playing sports had in Rashad and Troy’s lives

    Assets over liabilities and why you need to invest in relationship assets as well

    Stocks, ETFs, multifamily, and cryptocurrency investments

    Staying committed to your goals and following through

    And So Much More!

    Your Step-by-Step Guide to Buying Out-of-State Investment Properties

    Your Step-by-Step Guide to Buying Out-of-State Investment Properties

    It’s not uncommon for investors to start out by buying properties in their home markets. It makes things like neighborhood research, rehabs, and tenant showings so much easier when you’re only a short drive away from your property. That’s how Dave Meyer, VP of Data and Analytics right here at BiggerPockets, feels.

    Dave is currently living in Europe and has invested exclusively in Denver, where he used to call home. Now, as an entirely remote landlord, he’s seen the data on how many markets (like Tampa, Florida) are doing phenomenally for appreciation and rent increases. David Greene, out-of-state investor and the man who literally wrote the book on long-distance real estate investing is here to offer some much-needed council.

    With David having the experience as an agent and out-of-state investor and Dave having robust housing data at his disposal, the two come up with some clear plans to invest in up-and-coming markets. David and Dave talk about cash flow, appreciation, wage growth, the investing “spectrum”, and why so many real estate investors aren’t planning far enough ahead.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Cash flow vs. appreciation and which one matters most to you

    Developing your investment strategy and picking markets where it works

    Balancing the benefits of real estate investing and the investing “spectrum”

    What makes a market appreciate and cause rents to rise?

    What to do once you’ve found a great market to invest in

    Questions you should ask every out-of-state agent and property manager

    Where Dave and David are both looking to invest

    And So Much More!

    BiggerNews, October: How Small Landlords Can Beat the Hedge Funds

    BiggerNews, October: How Small Landlords Can Beat the Hedge Funds

    Once the housing market started to slide in 2007, smart investors began buying, and waiting, for rock-bottom prices to kick in. Investors were buying homes in some of the best markets for dimes on the dollar, and have seen massive profits whether keeping them as buy-and-hold rentals, BRRRR deals, or flips. While small investors started buying a couple of houses a year, institutional investors were doing far, far more.

    Private equity funds, along with REITs and hedge funds knew that foreclosed homes were a steal, and their economies of scale made it even easier to turn these financially mismanaged properties into appreciation and cash flow kings. As institutional investors began fixing up these homes, listing them for rent, and later selling them, the entire market moved in an upward direction. Now, first-time homebuyers are competing with these economic powerhouses to lock down their first primary residence or rental property.

    A man who has been covering this topic for years is The Wall Street Journal's, Ryan Dezember. Ryan has a keen understanding of what influences the housing market as a whole, why institutional investors are making the moves they are, and what this means for small mom-and-pop landlords. Dave Meyer also joins David Greene on this episode to discuss the ways small landlords can beat Wall Street at their own game.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Why home prices dropped to the lowest point in 2011

    How the pandemic gave institutional investors more buying power

    Who are the “wall street buyers” that are buying thousands of single-family homes?

    Why you should “find the tenant” before finding your next property

    The “carbon monoxide” of investing that most investors aren't paying attention to

    How institutional investors use economies of scale to rapidly rehab homes

    What small investors can do to beat institutional investors at the closing table

    And So Much More!
