    How to Land Deals with the VA Loan in a Sellers Market with Donald Appleberry

    How to Land Deals with the VA Loan in a Sellers Market with Donald Appleberry

    Episode: 146

    In today's episode, tune in to your host David Pere as he's joined with guest Donald Appleberry. With experience and stories, listen to Donald as he talks about the standards you need to look into when working with a real estate agent, his experience as a real estate investor with wholesale, and what he's got to say about VA Loans that people need to hear about.


    In a deal, the hesitation towards VA Loans is primarily because of the requirements and limitations that come with it. Donald has come to find this the biggest and most common misunderstanding regarding VA Loans, aside from the notion that VA Loans are complex and not quick to close. In this exchange, Donald argues these connotations.


    For Donald, getting hold of a real estate agent license isn't enough and doesn't apply anything when choosing agents to rely on in a deal. An agent needs to be active full-time and have skin in the game. David also adds, trusting an agent just because their licensed is almost comparable to trusting your 10-year old child with the keys to your Ferrari. Donald believes – just because someone is licensed – doesn't mean they're a professional.


    About Donald Appleberry:


    Donald enlisted as an 0321 Reconnaissance Man in 2014 and spent over 2 years in Bravo Company on the Free Fall Team as the team medic. After deploying, Donald moved into Force Reconnaissance Company and filled the Billet of a Team Leader for almost 18 months.


    During this time, he was furthering his investing knowledge and understanding and has started his Real Estate licensing process, investing in single-family homes. Donald is currently looking into starting a non-profit company as well.


    Donald is a part of the Discher real estate group in San Diego, CA. Specializing in VA home loans and listing service members' properties. They make sure to squeeze every benefit out of the VA loan and ensure the service member is set up for success and happiness in their new home.


    He has helped multiple members in the military buy investment properties and walked them through how to manage them correctly, both in state and out of state. It's a proven system that outpaces any other investment opportunity that has the same amount of risk.

    How to Use the VA Loan In A Sellers' Market with Jon Lallande (one of the best)

    How to Use the VA Loan In A Sellers' Market with Jon Lallande (one of the best)

    Episode: 145


    Jon Lallande


    Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guest Jon Lallande as they talk everything about VA loans, what makes it cool and not cool, and the one-time restoration entitlement that VA loan users need to hear about before they start building their portfolios.


    Throughout the discussion, the guys build up and poke holes in everything they can discuss regarding VA loans and their pros and cons. For Jon, a user benefits from a VA loan's higher chance of closing than other options. Meanwhile, Alex thinks it is disproportionately advertised to entice people into not-so-savvy investments.


    As a piece of advice to first-time investors, Jon believes in the importance of saving, understanding the available options on the table, and understanding how the market doesn't always just appreciate forever. In this episode, tune in to the different opinions that weigh out about VA loans as the guys tackle the topic in technicalities.


    About Jon Lallande:


    Jon Lallande's mission is to provide clients and real estate professionals with the ultimate home buying experience. Jon's goal is to take the stress off of the clients and the real estate agent by performing with consistent communication and swift timelines.


    Jon specializes in closing loans in as little as 15-21 days and offers a wide variety of loan programs, including; Jumbo, Conventional, FHA, VA, and refinance loans.


    As a prior Force Reconnaissance Marine and Scout Sniper, Jon loves working with military veterans and is a subject matter expert when it comes to VA loans. Whether it's a first-time home purchase or a multifamily "house-hack," Jon often finds himself helping to educate veterans on real estate and real estate finance.

    How to Use the BRRRR Strategy from Out Of State with Jin Lym

    How to Use the BRRRR Strategy from Out Of State with Jin Lym

    Episode: 144 Jin Lym Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guest Jin Lym as they talk about mentors, leveraging other people's expertise, and how Jin pivoted from flipping houses to doing rentals as a real estate investor. When Jin thought about the possibility of catering to a whole family and his parents in the future, he knew he needed to start gearing towards building generational wealth through real estate. Jin knew he needed to enter a specific niche of real estate investing to reach generational wealth and financial freedom. Thus, he got into rentals. From previously flipping houses in Hawaii, Jin moved to rentals to bring in residual income. In light of the topic, David, Alex, and Jin also discuss how this dilemma explains most people's fault when planning out a way of generating income. In this episode, listen as they talk deeper about networking, the BRRRR strategy, why turnkey assets suck and why they're good, and how investors can capitalize on their superpowers in order to jumpstart and gain an edge in the real estate business. About Jin Lym: Jin is a Marine Corps veteran and budding real estate investor. With a bachelor's in Information Systems and Operations Management from George Mason University, he has over seven years of professional information-technology experience, working with companies such as Rolls-Royce North America and Rackspace. Konea Capital was born out of Jin's passion for helping others and sharing knowledge, so starting a real estate investment fund focused on personal development and financial education was a natural thing for him to do. - Sponsor: Rentometer https://www.frommilitarytomillionaire.com/rentometer - Outline of the episode: ● [05:37] Everyone is going to have that origin story. ● [07:17] On finding mentors and incredible tractions. ● [10:56] It all boils down to your why. ● [17:19] The core problem of people when it comes to planning ahead. ● [20:59] Why turnkey properties suck. ● [30:00] Turnkey properties are good for those who… ● [30:46] The Glamorous BRRRR Strategy. ● [33:10] Leveraging people helps you avoid pitfalls. ● [47:45] People like to invest in other good investments. ● [47:49] Bring your talents and skills into business – find your superpower! ● [55:05] A good mentor only works if the mentee is good. ● [01:01:52] Your ultimate goal in life is your roadmap.

    How to Start Investing in Multifamily Real Estate from Overseas with Michael and Suzy

    How to Start Investing in Multifamily Real Estate from Overseas with Michael and Suzy

    Episode: 142


    Michael Barnhart and Suzie Sevier


    Join your hosts, David Pere and Alex Felice, with guests Michael and Suzie as they talk about overseas investing and the importance of aligning with the right people and team. Tune in as Michael and Suzie explain the systems and processes they've built that allow them to manage multifamily investments even when they're stationed abroad.


    When everybody was sent home during the lockdown, Michael and Suzie started questioning what they were going to do with the time and restrictions they're in. The two stumbled across the book, Multiple Streams of Income from a mini book club they started. Then and there, Michael and Suzie knew that they could do it too!


    In this episode, Michael and Suzie reiterate the magic of having the right team and education. They believe that while for some multifamily syndication can get tricky, having different creative minds that know other things you don't prove one thing: you don't have to do everything yourself.


    About Michael and Suzie:


    Suzy and Michael are the Founders of Adventurous Real Estate Investors. They specialize in Return on Impact. Through real estate investing, they create immeasurable impacts; in their family, with their friends, in their community, with the families (residents) they serve, in the spaces where they want to be generous – everywhere and anywhere! Their adventure began at a TEDx event — the theme was Reset — and it changed their lives.


    Their "why" is to achieve financial freedom through real estate investing so they can serve others all over the world. They want to be able to explore this beautiful world and experience all that it has to offer. They want to create an impact where it is needed most. They want to share this journey with others by offering investment opportunities to their partners, and to give back by mentoring others along the way to help them check off their bucket list items now, not after retirement.
