    Hunter Thompson on Raising Capital and Respecting the Debt Risks

    Hunter Thompson on Raising Capital and Respecting the Debt Risks

    In the real estate investor world, it’s very easy to be laser-focused on raising capital, raising rents, and increasing your bottom line. But one thing that can cripple a business is adding more debt to maximize profits. 
    My guest today is Hunter Thompson. Hunter has helped hundreds of investors close deals in commercial real estate and controls $100M in assets. He is the Founder of Asym Capital, the Host of the Cash Flow Connections Real Estate Podcast and the author of Raising Capital for Real Estate: How to Attract Investors, Establish Credibility, and Fund Deals. 
    I absolutely loved this interview because we’re on the same page with so many key concepts. Building trust and credibility takes effort and time, and Hunter has done it with incredible success.
    In this episode, we talk about some of the economic indicators that’s driving some of the supply and demand issues right now, particularly in Arizona. Hunter shares his AENC system and how that has been at the core of his success. We also dig into the importance of speed and moving quickly in your business and why finding your niche is so important for long term success.
    Key Takeaways with Hunter Thompson
    The key economic indicators contributing to the growth in Arizona, along with the supply/demand issues so many markets are facing. The valuable lesson that Hunter learned early on in his journey, when the money doesn’t always just show up if you’ve found a great deal. Why Tony decided to pivot into providing gap funding for other real estate investors. The importance of standing out, finding a niche so that when people are looking for assistance in a specific area, your name is at the top of the list. How Hunter tailors his content creation strategies to his clients to maximize success. The story of how Hunter’s AENC system was created after an embarrassing presentation yielded zero dollars in new capital. The added value in creating content but then repurposing your content as much as possible. How his success has been created by building credibility and nurturing those relationships. Hunter’s advice for new entrepreneurs and why you should seek out a mentor or a small firm to help get started as a real estate investor. Speed beats everything, put yourself in a position to move quickly to capitalize on the next opportunity. How Hunter has been able to rely on best-in class operators that specialize in various niches to find new deals. Respect the risks of acquiring debt. Adding value and raising rent is important, but many investors underestimate the risk of adding too much debt. Want the Full Show Notes?

    George O’Brien on Growing Your Real Estate Portfolio By Starting Early

    George O’Brien on Growing Your Real Estate Portfolio By Starting Early

    If you’ve been thinking about making the plunge into real estate investing, then you’ll definitely want to hear the wisdom from today’s guest, George O’Brien. After 6 short years as a real estate investor, he’s already retired and is living life on his terms. 
    George got his start in residential real estate and smaller multifamily deals and then quickly pivoted to larger multifamily properties after closing on 40 deals in a two year period. With his background in construction, he was able to do a lot of the work himself early on until he was able to grow his team. 
    He attributes a lot of his success to investing in smaller deals, which allowed him to forge strong relationships with like-minded investors, and build trust with the banks and his community. 
    In this conversation, you’ll learn the steps George took to quickly grow his portfolio, how to invest in real estate no matter where it’s located, and why the best path to success is starting early!
    Key Takeaways with George O’Brien
    The importance of getting started early as a real estate investor. The sooner the better. What it takes to successfully pivot from residential investing to multifamily properties. Why it’s okay to focus on smaller investments and properties that are under 75 units and how these properties were the foundation for his portfolio. Why George prefers the direct to seller route to find new deals. For a successful partnership, align yourself with like-minded people. The importance of doing your due diligence, especially when you’re making cold calls with people you’re not familiar with. Always be ready to capitalize on deals and make sure that you have the resources ready to go so that you don’t risk ever losing a deal. How to live where you want and invest where it makes sense. Be wary of working with family and who you choose to partner with as it’s much harder to end a relationship then to start one. How you can showcase your talents and attract outside investors.
