Choice is a new self-directed IRA product that I'm really excited about. If you are listening to this, you are likely part of the 7.1 million bitcoin owners who have retirement accounts with dollars in them, but not bitcoin. I was in that situation too. Now you can actually buy real Bitcoin in your retirement account. I'm talking about owning your private keys and using tax-advantaged dollars to do it too. Absolute game changer. https://www.retirewithchoice.com/pomp

Michael Heller and James Salzman on Mine!
Law professors Michael Heller and James Salzman talk about their book, Mine! with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Heller and Salzman argue that ownership is trickier and more complicated than it looks. While we tend to think of something as either mine or not mine, there's often ambiguity and a continuum about who owns what. Salzman and Heller explore a wide and surprising range of property rights from everyday life. The conversation includes a discussion of the insights of Ronald Coase on the assignment of property rights when rights conflict.
Bigger Deals, Better Profits: 10 Steps to Your First Large Multifamily w/ Brian Murray and Brandon Turner
We’re back for part two with The Multifamily Millionaire authors Brandon Turner and Brian Murray. This time, Brian is on the mic to give you the ten steps to purchase your first large multifamily property. You may be thinking that these ten steps sound too easy for such a large deal, but that is part of the advice that Brian gives.
Brian wants smaller multifamily owners or even single-family owners to know that buying a large multifamily property is just more volume, not a completely different skill set. If you own one or multiple units right now, you may have more skills than most to take down a 100-unit apartment building or a big mobile home park. The only thing standing in your way is the mindset.
This episode just scratches the surface of what’s possible in large multifamily real estate investing, the rest can be found in The Multifamily Millionaire Volume II. As a reminder, if you purchase before the end of August 2021, you’ll get a four-week multifamily masterclass, taught by Brandon Turner.
In This Episode We Cover:
Why chasing larger deals leads to larger profits
Understanding the skills needed to become a successful multifamily investor
Shrinking your criteria down to a micro-level, not just a macro overview
Starting (or investing in) syndications so you can get into bigger multifamily deals
Capital stacks, debt, and other types of financing when buying large properties
Why underwriting is more than just putting numbers into a spreadsheet
And So Much More!
