    Property Manager Neglect: Operational Risks to Your Business #3 with Josh Cantwell

    Property Manager Neglect: Operational Risks to Your Business #3 with Josh Cantwell

    A bad property manager isn’t just a bad investment. They have the power to threaten your deal, take it down, or even directly create negative cash flow. If they don’t do what you need them to, they can turn your investment on its head in record time–and do serious damage to your portfolio along the way.
    With that in mind, today’s installment of the Operational Risks series is all about property management failures. Based on my own experiences, as well as those of several people I know, I’m sharing the common mistakes investors make when it comes to property management.
    You’ll learn how to avoid bleeding money, how to turn bad situations into cash flow positives, and the critical differences between a bad property manager and a good one.
    Key Takeaways with Josh Cantwell
    Key questions to ask any property manager you’re interviewing. Why you should NEVER let your property manager do your capital improvements. Why property managers are generally terrible at marketing. How to determine if you’re spending too much on utilities, staffing, or other operational expenses. Why some property managers will rent to tenants below your guidelines–and how this can become a serious problem 4-6 months later. Want the Full Show Notes?

    Stacking Assets & Filling Your Pipeline with Off-Market Deals with Ryan Corcoran

    Stacking Assets & Filling Your Pipeline with Off-Market Deals with Ryan Corcoran

    For many real estate investors, it starts with a single flip–but it’s what you do next that really matters. 
    Today’s guest, Ryan Corcoran, definitely figured out what his next step was and he hasn’t looked back. Ryan is the founder and CEO of Specialized Property Group. That first flip became a springboard that helped him eventually purchase over $15 million worth of real estate, including over 200 units of multifamily apartments in the Northeast. On top of that, he’s helped other investors do over $10 million in deals. 
    Ryan has a knack for finding incredible off-market deals through direct mail marketing–and he’s used this technique to purchase 100-unit buildings at a discount without brokers or realtors. 
    In this conversation, Ryan and I discuss how that first flip led to an eight-figure portfolio–and everything he learned along the way. You’ll find out why his latest development fund is uniquely focused on build-to-rent properties, how he’s building a $25 million fund for his upcoming projects, and why great deals (and great investors) were crucial to his success. 
    Key Takeaways with Ryan Corcoran
    How Ryan finds off-market deals of all sizes. Ryan’s build-to-rent strategy–and why he’s getting involved in new development. The importance of being creative when raising private money. How building confidence in your deals, especially in new developments, helps to create value to potential buyers. How overextending yourself and shiny object syndrome can prove to be huge setbacks as you build your portfolio.  Want the Full Show Notes?

    Auction.com Market Outlook: Buying Opportunities with a Backlog of Distressed Mortgages with Daren Blomquist

    Auction.com Market Outlook: Buying Opportunities with a Backlog of Distressed Mortgages with Daren Blomquist

    Home prices are no longer rising like they were, but the cost of debt is going up, and you might be seeing and feeling distress in the markets by the time of your next deal. So, with all signs pointing to a recession on the horizon, what should you do?
    To help me answer this question, I’m once again joined by Daren Blomquist, EVP at Auction.com. As their in-house economist, he helps clients–both buyers and sellers–understand where the market’s going. There was so much more than we wanted to cover in our most recent discussion and I knew I wanted to bring him back to make sure we covered everything.
    In this episode, Daren and I talk about why housing prices in 2023 are all but guaranteed to drop, why there are still a ton of great investment opportunities during economic downturns, and which markets are likely to be riskiest in the months and years to come.
    Key Takeaways with Daren Blomquist
    The dangers of investing for cash flow in a tumultuous economy–and how interest rates can ruin a flip overnight. How the end of the foreclosure moratorium is going to create a growing backlog of distressed mortgages, delinquent loans, and foreclosed properties. Why this housing downturn is highly unlikely to be as tumultuous as the Great Recession of 2009. What makes coastal areas so much more prone to cycles of boom-bust than the Midwest. Why flippers may still want to consider selling right now. Want the Full Show Notes?

    CapEx Expenses and Going Over Budget: Operational Risks to Your Business #2

    CapEx Expenses and Going Over Budget: Operational Risks to Your Business #2

    In the second installment of this series about the threats and risks to your business, I’ll be sharing six tips that will help keep your CapEx expenses in line and your value-add projects on schedule and, most importantly, within budget.
    These are the things that you need to have dialed in so that your property is performing the way that it should, that it continues to generate cash flow so that you can increase your operating income and your bottom line.
    With a looming recession and interest rates continuing to climb, it will likely be tougher to refi or sell your properties because of the cost of taking on debt and ongoing supply chain issues. Managing how you order and store materials are just one of the keys to success, and with these processes in place (and boots on the ground), these tips will surely help you stay on time and within budget.
    Key Takeaways with Josh Cantwell
    The challenges of completing value-add projects outside of your area during a recession with inflation and supply chain issues. The cost savings from ordering the materials yourself. How to properly store those materials on the work-site and how to create a process for checking out the material. Ways that you can save on costs when hiring contractors and why you should hire construction managers internally. The importance of secret shopping the units once per week and having boots on the ground to verify the work that is done. Want the Full Show Notes?
