    BiggerNews: Mid-Year Housing Market Update + Mortgage Rate Forecast w/Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather

    BiggerNews: Mid-Year Housing Market Update + Mortgage Rate Forecast w/Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather

    We’re almost halfway through 2024, and the housing market is at a standstill. Mortgage rates are high, inventory is low, buyers have fewer choices, and many homeowners refuse to put their properties up for sale. But could things change in the second half of this year if interest rates fall and inventory improves, even if ever so slightly? We brought Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather on this BiggerNews episode to get her team’s latest 2024 housing market predictions.

    First, Daryl explains how our stubbornly strong economy put the Federal Reserve in a challenging position and whether or not we could hit the magic two-percent inflation rate goal. Will buyers ever get a break in this tough housing market, and could lower interest rates improve things? Daryl shares what she thinks will happen once the Fed finally cuts rates, how low rates could go, and whether or not this will heat home prices up yet again.

    Some “unusual demand” may come late this year for housing, but will agents, brokers, and sellers see the traditionally hot summer season they’ve been waiting for? We’re answering all these questions and more with this housing market data leader on this BiggerNews episode!

    Seeing Greene: I Can’t Find Tenants! Should I Sell or Lower My Rent?

    Seeing Greene: I Can’t Find Tenants! Should I Sell or Lower My Rent?

    Your rental properties are sitting vacant—what do you do? Do you sell or lower your rent price to spark some interest? Will reducing your rent open you up to bad tenants? We’re getting into exactly what you should do in this sticky landlording situation, and many others, in this episode of Seeing Greene. This time, we’re sharing wisdom on what to do when you can’t find tenants, how to invest with just $15,000 in 2024, which rental property mortgage to pay off first, and whether to keep or sell your newly renovated rental.

    As usual, your real estate investing experts, David Greene and Rob Abasolo, are on the show to help answer any investing question you can think of. Our first video submission comes from a new investor who is completing his first BRRRR (buy, rehab, rent, refinance, repeat). With only $15,000 in the bank and a desire to build a real estate portfolio, what’s the BEST way to use such a small amount of cash? Next, a landlord with multiple rentals wants to know which mortgage to pay down first: her primary residence or her other rentals. An out-of-state investor with a vacant property struggles to find a tenant even after lowering his rent price. A medium-term rental owner with a burnt property asks whether to sell or re-rent the property after his insurance-paid renovations are completed.

    Want to ask David and Rob a question? If so, submit your question here so they can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene, or hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take!

    In This Episode We Cover

    The huge danger of using a HELOC (home equity line of credit) to pay off a property
    What to do after you renovate/rebuild a rental property—keep or sell it?
    And So Much More!

    (01:24) Build a Portfolio with $15K?

    Making $10,000/Month PER Rental with These Guaranteed Cash Flow “Contracts” w/Noble Crawford

    Making $10,000/Month PER Rental with These Guaranteed Cash Flow “Contracts” w/Noble Crawford

    Want to know how to make millions WITHOUT owning real estate? Rental arbitrage is the strategy for you. And maybe you’ve heard about it before, but we promise you’ve never heard anything like this. Today’s guest is bringing in millions of dollars through “guaranteed” rental arbitrage contracts that last YEARS. You heard that right—guaranteed rent for years, often at the highest price on the market. And you don’t need to own a single rental property to try this strategy. So, how do you get started?
    If you’re looking to make big money with big deals but don’t have the deep pockets to buy a hundred-unit apartment complex, Noble Crawford has what you need. After choosing his wife’s health over his day job, Noble realized he needed an income stream he could depend on—one that wouldn’t be ripped away from him when life’s challenges arose. He learned about Airbnb investing and, by default, rental/Airbnb arbitrage. When the opportunity came for him to house medical students in need, he jumped at the chance and found a seriously lucrative investing avenue.
    In today’s episode, Noble will walk through exactly what you can do to start making tens of thousands, if not millions, with rental arbitrage. Plus, he’ll share how to get the deeply-desired government contracts that guarantee you top-of-the-market rent for YEARS.

    BiggerNews: Apartment Investing Took a Huge Hit, Is a Comeback On the Way? w/Brian Burke

    BiggerNews: Apartment Investing Took a Huge Hit, Is a Comeback On the Way? w/Brian Burke

    Almost overnight, multifamily investing went from red-hot to something not even the most experienced investors would touch. After interest rates went up, rent growth stalled, and apartment supply flooded the market, the apartment investing industry became the ugly duckling of real estate. Owners struggled to get tenants and had huge balloon payments due, and no one was there to save them. But one man predicted that this would happen before anyone else—Brian Burke.

    After seeing a crash on the horizon, Brian sold off most of his multifamily real estate portfolio and did it at just the right time. Now, he has a new prediction that could make apartment investors very happy. But a market turnaround won’t come quickly, and if you want to ensure you don’t make the same mistakes most multifamily investors made in 2020 - 2022, you’ll need to hear this BiggerNews episode. 

    In this BiggerNews, Brian walks through everything that went wrong with multifamily real estate, signs it’s time to sell your properties, and some hope on the horizon for 2025 that most investors have no idea about.

    In This Episode We Cover
    A multifamily real estate update and Brian’s buying plans for 2024 and 2025
    The “sobering reality” of the perfectly timed “traffic accident” that hit multifamily all at once 
    Why as soon as you sense “irrational exuberance,” it may be time to sell your real estate 
    An optimistic prediction from Brian on when multifamily could finally get back on its feet
    Syndication struggles and what every syndicator/investor should be doing NOW 
    Why the multifamily oversupply may NOT be a problem in the coming years 
    And So Much More!

    Top Investors Reveal Their Worst Real Estate Deals (DON'T Repeat Them!)

    Top Investors Reveal Their Worst Real Estate Deals (DON'T Repeat Them!)

    Think you've got a bad real estate deal? We doubt it comes even close to what we’re about to share. Today, the experts are in to talk about bee-infested rental properties, risky flips, “wholetail” failures, and other ways that they’ve lost money with real estate deals gone wrong. Why are we sharing such horrific stories? Because we want YOU to be able to avoid the same fate on your first or next investment property. Take a seat, get some popcorn, and pray that your properties won’t turn out like this…

    First, Henry Washington from the On the Market podcast shares his recent luxury flip…or should we say, luxury “flop.” This property was poised to make him up to a six-figure profit, but it didn’t work out that way. One simple mistake ruined this real estate deal and forced Henry to slowly pay away all his profits to a hard money lender. Next, our own Rob Absolo talks about the dangers of NOT looking at the comps when doing a “wholetail” deal and how you could easily find yourself with a home worth less than what you put into it.

    Finally, the deal of all horrible deals comes out…David Greene’s deal. Where do we even start? Permit problems, mold, bee infestations, and NO way out—this short-term rental gone wrong is costing David hundreds of thousands of dollars, and with little light at the end of the tunnel, he may be forced to do something drastic. So, how do YOU avoid these nightmarish real estate deals? Stick around so you know exactly what NOT to do.

    In This Episode We Cover
    Three of the worst real estate deals our investing experts have ever done
    Why not knowing your neighborhood can cost you BIG on your next house flip
    The danger of hard money loans and the massive interest they come with
    Why you NEED a partner/mentor in your area to confirm a property’s worth
    The so-called “landlord-friendly” state that’s actively trying to ruin David Greene 
    How nosy neighbors can end up costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars 
    Whether or not our investing experts regret investing in real estate after this 
    And So Much More!

    (00:00) Intro
    (01:24) A Risky Luxury Flip
    (06:02) Final Numbers and Exit Plans
    (09:19) Henry’s Mistake
    (11:14) An Overpriced Wholetail
    (15:04) Rob’s Mistake
    (23:23) The City Ruined My Real Estate
    (32:43) David Lost HOW Much!?
    (36:19) How to Avoid This
    (39:07) Do We Regret It?

Great podcast

Every week I learn something new from this podcast. I love the energy and enthusiasm of these hosts and really appreciate their knowledge and expertise.

Good information, SO MANY ADS

This used to be such a pleasure to listen, the amount of ads is driving me away. Also the fact that Rob didn’t even understand the different between an FHA loan and a conventional loan, just doesn’t seem like he knows much outside of the Airbnb world. I really enjoy on the market much more, sorry guys.

Episode 294 Infomercial

I’ve listed to BP podcasts for many years. I’ve learned a lot, bought BP books, and been a subscriber. Episode 294 felt like a straight sales pitch. After years of gaining trust of the BP platform and personalities, episode significantly eroded my trust for BP and DeRosa. I couldn't finish the episode for the first time in hundreds of episodes.
