    From Military to Millionaire with David Pere

    From Military to Millionaire with David Pere

    In my latest podcast interview, I’m speaking with David Pere. David is the founder of “From Military to Millionaire”, where his mission is to teach service members, veterans, and their families how to build wealth through real estate investing—so they can retire early and enjoy the freedoms they fought for!
    During his first two enlistments, David realized he was wasting away his money on material possessions instead of investing it. So, in 2015, he decided to buy a duplex. He lived in one side, and rented the other side out to cover the mortgage payment. That decision changed his life forever!
    While stationed in Hawaii, David went on to buy a 10-unit apartment in Missouri and was able to use bank-financing, seller-financing, and a home equity line of credit to purchase the property with less than 5% down—and great terms!
    In today’s conversation, David and I chat about how he achieved financial freedom in 2021, and transitioned from active duty into the Marine Corps Reserve in order to devote his time to showing other service members and veterans how to achieve the same!
    For current or former military, or those who are looking to invest and are starting from nothing, you’ll absolutely love this interview with David Pere!
    Key Takeaways with David Pere

    Find out why “buy and hold” is David’s preferred real estate strategy! Whole-Tailing vs. Wholesaling. What’s the difference? How to house-hack your way into real estate investing. How David bought a 10-unit building with less than 5% down—and this was only his 2nd real estate deal! Using direct mailers to scale your real estate business—and how David landed 2 apartment buildings and a hotel with this strategy. Tactics for targeting landlords who are fed up with their property and just want to sell. Helping service members become military millionaires! Why “I have no time” isn’t a good excuse not to succeed. The 2 most important factors to look for when looking for a mentor/coach. Want the Full Show Notes?

    Anthony Metzger on Closing a $11M Deal with ZERO Real Estate Experience!

    Anthony Metzger on Closing a $11M Deal with ZERO Real Estate Experience!

    Anthony Metzger had never done a real estate deal in his life. He literally had ZERO experience, but after listening to a podcast about apartment syndication he knew he wanted to do something big.
    So, he found a private equity firm that was actively syndicating deals, reached out to them, and asked how he could add value. Their answer was to find an apartment building that met their investment criteria. He spent the next year and a half educating himself, calling brokers, sourcing deals, underwriting deals, and making offers. 18 months later, he presented a deal to the syndication firm and they closed on it. 
    This was his first deal ever, and it was a 218-unit apartment complex that they purchased for $11M! 
    In my conversation with Anthony, you’ll learn exactly how he was able to make it happen, despite not having any credibility, leverage, or experience. 
    Key Takeaways with Anthony Metzger

    How Anthony partnered with an active syndicator to close on a 218-unit deal—with no experience! Building a relationship with a syndicator who has never heard of you. The secret to Anthony’s success that anyone can model. The power of the first deal—and why it’s so important to get your reps in! How to add value to a property by reducing expenses. How to avoid looking like an amateur in front of brokers, and increase your credibility so they will take you seriously. Questions you can ask brokers’ to control the conversation.
    A great tactic for increasing your deal flow.\ How you can get more practice analyzing deals. Want the Full Show Notes?

    10 Techniques to Add Value, Drive Income and Reduce Expenses with Josh Cantwell

    10 Techniques to Add Value, Drive Income and Reduce Expenses with Josh Cantwell

    As the saying goes, it’s the little things that can make a big difference! 
    In this episode, I’m going to walk you through 10 very simple techniques and strategies that will help you drive income, increase your profits, reduce your expenses and improve your bottom line, when purchasing a new multifamily property. 
    There is a general understanding that in order to make money you have to renovate and increase the rents. But if you want to truly maximize your profits, there is more work to be done.
    A lot of the tips that I’m going to share might sound like no-brainers, but you’d be amazed at how often we see other property owners make incredibly simple mistakes that end up costing them a ton of money. If you could save 25-35% on your water bill and thousands of dollars every year on utilities, why wouldn’t you do that? Spending $300-400 per unit on plumbing upgrades can literally save you tens of thousands each year.
    Today, you’ll learn the exact system our team has in place to make sure that we’re taking advantage of every opportunity to make money and turn a profit on every unit.
    Key Takeaways with Josh Cantwell

    Improve the resident experience and upgrade the units. People will pay more for a better experience. Raise the rents and consider using dynamic pricing by changing the rent prices by month or by season to take advantage of peak moving times of the year. Lower the utility costs by upgrading to LED lights wherever possible. Include a partial amount of the utilities on the tenants bill. These are all benefits and features that you're offering, so bill it back to them. Run a segregation study on the building by having an accounting team come in and segregate the soft and hard costs of the property. Eliminate poor management. So many properties have third party management companies with a terrible expense ratio. Quickly turn the units and fill them. Have a plan to turn vacant units into rented units within a few weeks. Find one cable and internet provider to wire the entire building, lock in the contact and resell cable and internet to the tenants for a profit. Water conservation is huge. We install low-flow systems on everything like toilets, shower heads and faucets. This can often help reduce the water and sewer bill by 25-35% each year. And be sure to look out for slow leaks as they literally flush your profits down the drain. Get multiple quotes from contractors for your CapEx items like paving, landscaping, trash and snow removal. You can save thousands of dollars just by shopping around. We have $20 million in private capital that we are looking to use in the next 3-6 months so please contact us at Freeland Ventures if you’re looking to partner up on a deal. Want the Full Show Notes?

    Building Your Real Estate Dream Team

    Building Your Real Estate Dream Team

    I just got off the phone with one of my coaching members, and he posed a very good question that I thought would be great for the podcast… 
    “I’m buying the land for a residential assisted living deal. I’ve secured the land, the loan is set up, and I’ve partnered with a couple of guys. But I’m doing everything myself, and there just doesn’t seem to be enough time. You’ve got 3,000+ units. How do you do it Josh?”
    Most people don’t realize how much work it actually takes to run a commercial real estate business. Not only will doing it alone limit your growth, but it’s a surefire way to completely burnout. 
    Yes, I may have 3,000+ rental units, but I also still have a life. I coach my daughter’s volleyball team, I coach my son’s football team, I get to spend time with my wife, I get to vacation, go to the gym, and lot’s more. I can still do all of these things—but that’s because the weight of the business isn’t resting only on my shoulders.  
    The commercial real estate business is a team sport and I’ve learned how to play the game! If you want to scale up and do more deals, you have to know how to build your dream team and divide up the responsibilities. That’s what you’re going to learn all about on today’s episode!
    Key Takeaways

    How to invest in commercial real estate without spending your whole life working. The importance of dividing up roles and responsibilities between you and your operating partners. Where do you find your dream team? The organizational structure of my company and what every team member is responsible for. What percentage of your business should you give up to bring on the right people? Want the Full Show Notes?

    How Whitney Sewell Scaled to Over 1,000 Doors in Only 4 Years!

    How Whitney Sewell Scaled to Over 1,000 Doors in Only 4 Years!

    In my latest podcast interview, I’m speaking with Whitney Sewell, who went from no experience in real estate, to scaling to over 1,000 doors valued at $150 million—in just 4 years! 
    Before ever investing in real estate, Whitney served in the military and spent a full year in Iraq fighting for our country. After returning home, he got married, joined the police force, invested in a few properties, and even bought a farm to pursue a horse training business on the side. 
    Unfortunately, his fast-paced lifestyle left little time for his family, so he decided to sell the farm, quit his job, and pursue multifamily real estate full-time. 
    He bought a few triplexes for his first few deals, and admits to making a ton of mistakes along the way. But the work ethic and “never give up” mindset he learned in the military, would become his real estate super power. 
    Today, Whitney is host of The Real Estate Syndication Show and Founder of Life Bridge Capital—a syndicated multifamily investment firm that works with investors on strategically targeted multifamily properties. 
    In our conversation, you’ll learn exactly how he was able to scale so quickly, the benefits of a multifamily fund structure (versus one-off deals), and how to leverage the skills of others to build a highly successful real estate business!  
    Key Takeaways with Whitney Sewell

    What is a multi-asset fund and how does it help passive investors mitigate risk and diversify their cash-flow Evaluating different multifamily investing strategies—value-add, cashflow, and development deals. Going from finding investors to fund your deal, to finding deal flow for your investors. The biggest lessons the military taught Whitney during his service in Iraq—and how they apply to real estate investing. Making the decision to quit your job to pursue real estate full-time. How to uncover your superpower and partner with others to build a highly successful multifamily business. Why loyalty is the key to raising money. Why Whitney and his wife are on a mission to help families through the process of adoption and have committed 50% of their profits! Want the Full Show Notes?
