    Seeing Greene: Paying Off Rentals, Estimating Crime, & Replacing Your Salary

    Seeing Greene: Paying Off Rentals, Estimating Crime, & Replacing Your Salary

    Should I pay off my rental property or reinvest? How do I replace my six-figure salary with cash flow from real estate investing? And what’s the best way to analyze crime BEFORE I invest in an area? You asked, and we’re here to answer on this episode of Seeing Greene as we take questions from rookie real estate investors, veterans in the rental property game, and everyone in between. If you want to scale your portfolio faster or quit your job with real estate, this is the place to be!
    First, we take a question from a high-earner asking whether they should pay off their rental properties OR use their extra money to build a bigger portfolio faster. A fledgling house hacker wants to know the best way to analyze an investing area for crime now that many online listing websites have taken down this data. A business owner is struggling to find real estate write-offs and asks for help, and a rental property investor needs to know which commercial real estate investment boasts the biggest cash flow. Finally, an anonymous question comes in from a techie who’s about to lose their job. How can they replace their six-figure income with rental properties fast?
    Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can jump on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot! 
    In This Episode We Cover:
    Whether to pay off your mortgages early or reinvest to build a bigger portfolio
    Replacing your salary with real estate income and why you may want to get a job instead 
    How to analyze an investment area for crime with limited online data 
    The short-term rental tax loophole that could save you a TON on taxes
    Will an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) add value to your property on an appraisal?
    Cash-flowing commercial real estate investments and why top investors pay attention to something else 
    And So Much More!

    BiggerNews: Investing with High Rates, Stubborn Inflation, & Low Supply w/Kathy Fettke

    BiggerNews: Investing with High Rates, Stubborn Inflation, & Low Supply w/Kathy Fettke

    Mortgage rates are high, supply is low, and inflation just won’t go away. These market conditions make investing in real estate harder than ever…or so most investors think. The truth? This housing market isn’t all that different from years past, and if you know which moves to make, you can get ahead of all the other investors without them noticing. What do we mean? We’ve got a seasoned investor with over thirty years of rental property experience on the show, ready to share how buying during “high” rates can be a huge advantage.
    But that’s not all we’re getting into on this BiggerNews episode. We’ve got questions directly from BiggerPockets listeners that we’re throwing at expert investor Kathy Fettke to see what time-tested advice she’d give. First, a listener wants to know why mortgage rates aren’t falling and how to get into the real estate investing game during a time like this. Then, we discuss how investors can save themselves against inflation. With a spike in part-time work, could the American economy be showing signs of weakness? Finally, we answer the question everyone has on their minds: Is it the darn millennials’ fault for causing these high home prices?
    Want to ask a question for a future BiggerNews episode? Post your question in the BiggerPockets forums and get answers from a community of over 2,000,000 real estate investors!
    In This Episode We Cover:
    Mortgage rates explained and why interest rates are staying so high
    Sneaky ways to snag a LOW interest rate in 2024 (Kathy got 4.75%!)
    The best hedge against inflation and how to protect the money you have
    Rising part-time work and whether or not this is a recession warning sign 
    Did millennials cause this unaffordable housing market?
    And So Much More!

    How to Pay Less Taxes by Buying Real Estate (1 Write-Off You’re Overlooking) w/Brandon Hall

    How to Pay Less Taxes by Buying Real Estate (1 Write-Off You’re Overlooking) w/Brandon Hall

    With so many real estate tax write-offs, it’s no wonder that CPA Brandon Hall says rental real estate is one of the most tax-advantaged assets on the planet. But, even with so much free-flowing information on how to pay less to Uncle Sam, most real estate investors are missing out on a MASSIVE tax deduction that could be saving them thousands, if not tens of thousands, on their tax bill. What’s the write-off that even our host, Dave Meyer, didn’t know about? Stick around, or walk away from a HUGE tax savings.
    Brandon Hall is a real estate investor-focused CPA. He knows the deductions, write-offs, and audit red flags that could be helping or hurting you. Today, he’s walking through whether or not you need a tax professional (a LOT of people DON’T), why you need to start tax planning BEFORE you buy your first property, the biggest real estate tax write-off that most people miss, and why you should WAIT to file your taxes to see if a MASSIVE real estate tax benefit is making a much-awaited comeback.
    Need a tax professional to help you make the right tax moves? Find one for FREE with BiggerPockets Tax Finder.
    In This Episode We Cover:
    The big real estate write-off that most investors are completely overlooking
    Why you should WAIT to file your taxes in case this MASSIVE tax benefit returns
    Who should (and definitely shouldn’t) be doing their own taxes 
    Scaling your portfolio? Why you MUST start strategically planning your taxes now
    The biggest audit red flags that are NOT worth the deduction (watch out for these!)
    A bonus depreciation update and how this could save you hundreds of thousands

Erica’s designs go far beyond what most guests expect, and that’s why she’s been so successful.
    Erica gives us the three steps to her “designing for dollars” formula, plus seven tips that ANY Airbnb, medium-term, or long-term rental investor can use to attract their target guest/renter and start making more money than ever before. Plus, if you’re a host with a lackluster short-term rental and are looking for some quick design ideas to spruce up your space, Erica shows you step-by-step how to refresh your rental for MORE revenue!
    No matter what space you’re in—vacation rentals, travel nurse housing, student rentals, or fix-and-flips—these design tips will blow your potential renters and buyers away, leaving you with more money than the house next door. Ready for Erica to “crack the code” on Airbnb design? Let’s get into it!
    In This Episode We Cover:
    How Erica doubled a client’s Airbnb revenue with smart design strategies
    The “designing for dollars” formula that’ll get you more bookings on Airbnb
    How to define your “target market” and attract the exact guests you want 
    The seven steps you can use NOW to get higher rents on your short-term rental
    Why long-term rental landlords MUST pay attention to design to attract the best tenants

Staying in the Loop!

I have been listening to BP for years. I have loved all the hosts and co-hosts! The knowledge and continuous education about real estate, the economy and more and invaluable to me in my investor journey.

Great advice for life in general …

I really enjoy this episode I’ve been listen for about 5 years now and even accidentally went live with David Greene once… 🤣
This episode was perfect timing for me. I am a business owner and RE investing is my side hustle. In general, life gets overwhelming when handling these two things. My favorite tips of this podcast: #1) know your limits to prevent burn out; #2) don’t leave your W2 until it starts to become a liability as opposed to an asset. I like how Rob and David described how their RE was taking up too much of their time and they noticed that’s what they want to spent their time doing, as opposed to just doing it because someone said this is how you build your wealth.
These definitely speak to me. It is important to stay focused, plan R&R, building your wealth by doing something you love .
Thank you for this episode, David and Rob!! 🤗

Used to be great podcast not anymore

Episodes have no structure. Keeps getting shorter and seems like half the content is ads.
