    105. Building a Portfolio at Your OWN Pace, Without Partners! - Interview with Carrie Drier

    105. Building a Portfolio at Your OWN Pace, Without Partners! - Interview with Carrie Drier

    In today’s episode I get to chat with Carrie Drier of @roostnorthrentals. In an industry that’s constantly talking about how to scale faster, leverage all the financing loopholes, and that partnerships are the key to growth, Carrie’s journey of scaling to 9 properties with just her and her husband, is so refreshing!

    She breaks down exactly how they added on each unit, the timeframe it took to do it, and why she has no regrets about her “slow and steady wins the race approach”. Carrie shares how avoiding partnerships has given her complete control over each and every decision, and the freedom it gave her to do things her own way has been priceless.

    If you’ve been feeling the pressure to grow faster and scale in a way that doesn’t align with you, this is a must-listen!

    104. How to Niche Yourself Down as a Cohost for Midterm Rentals - Interview with Breanna Williams

    104. How to Niche Yourself Down as a Cohost for Midterm Rentals - Interview with Breanna Williams

    On today's show we have Breanna Williams, who has niched herself down to be a cohost for midterm rentals. When I started chatting with Breanna, I was shocked that she's been able to build a business doing this. As a short-term rental host, I've always found midterm rentals to be the more passive option, and couldn't imagine a property owner needing a cohost to manage just one check in per month.

    Breanna, proves to us that there is major value in providing this service to property owners. If you've been wanting to dive into cohosting, this episode will open your eyes to one of the many ways you can niche your offering down and build the cohosting business you want to run.

    101. This Cohost Went From 6 to 26 Properties Overnight by Buying a Property Management Company - Interview with Patryk Swietek

    101. This Cohost Went From 6 to 26 Properties Overnight by Buying a Property Management Company - Interview with Patryk Swietek

    Welcome, and thanks for checking in today to No Vacancy The Podcast!

    On this week's episode:
    You may remember Patryk from episode 38 where he broke down the BRRRR strategy for us. Now, I had to have him back on No Vacancy because Patryk has become an expert in buying existing cohosting businesses. Instead of acquiring cohost clients one by one, which so many of us find ourselves doing, Patryk found a shortcut by buying portfolios of cohosted contracts! He's closing on his 3rd purchase, and has been able to onboard 50+ units from these 3 transactions. Even if you're not interested in buying a cohost business, Patryk shares some tips on how you can prepare your cohost business to be sold one day, and what buyers like him are looking for!
    AITAH for not wanting to be the "financial advisor" for this guest?
