    Find the Real Estate You Hate (So You Can Buy the Real Estate You Love)

    Find the Real Estate You Hate (So You Can Buy the Real Estate You Love)

    Not everyone will love commercial investing, mixed-use buildings, flipping houses, BRRRRing, or even traditional buy-and-hold rentals. But you’ll probably find one type of real estate class that you absolutely love. It may take you some time, but if you’re able to find a property type that sparks your creativity, all while providing positive cash flow, you’ll know you made it.

    Katie Neason definitely didn't love government-subsidized rentals. She dreaded the phone calls, the repairs, and the unresponsive tenants. Katie thought that upgrading her investing strategy to multifamily housing would solve the problems. Unfortunately, after buying some fourplexes, she realized that too wasn’t for her.

    After trial and error, Katie found her true real estate loves: flipping, developing, and mixed-use buildings. So, she went into all three and is doing phenomenal! Katie shares a special Deal Deep Dive where she walks through a degraded downtown building that is now the talk of the town due to her smart negotiating, creative redesigns, and ability to use her network to fund the deal!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Why it’s important to find the real estate classes you truly enjoy working on

    Understanding the positives and negatives that come with subsidized housing

    Revitalizing a downtown through smart planning, designing, and financing 

    Taking action so you can achieve “hockey stick” growth in real estate

    Working with the city so you can collectively build something that adds value to the community

    How to negotiate so both the buyer and seller walk away with a win

    And So Much More!

    10 Best Books for Real Estate, Health, and Wealth

    10 Best Books for Real Estate, Health, and Wealth

    Sometimes the best real estate books aren’t about real estate at all. Or at least, that’s what Brandon and David found out. After rummaging through their bookshelves, Brandon and David decided to give listeners their top ten books that allowed them to reach financial, spiritual, and personal success. Some of these books include classics you’ve heard mentioned on the show before, while others are centered more on human happiness, problem solving, or relationships.

    What’s important to know is that these books can help anyone, no matter what stage of the investing journey they’re in. Whether you’re a veteran or rookie, reading a simple concept, sentence, or quote can fundamentally shift how you think about life and investing. Brandon also runs through a dozen more book recommendations at the end of this episode, so if you’ve already read through the top ten, hang around for that!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Brandon and David’s top ten book list (for any type of investor!)

    Understanding the different parts of the brain and using it to build better arguments and strengthen relationships 

    Tweaking the “rules of the game” you’re playing in relation to wealth and happiness

    Taking on extreme ownership and using it to become a better leader

    Developing confidence and how to do so when you’re feeling lost

    Communicating more effectively and allowing others to see through your perspective

    And So Much More!

    How to Get 'Unstuck' | Coaching Calls w/ Brandon Turner

    How to Get 'Unstuck' | Coaching Calls w/ Brandon Turner

    Real estate investing can feel complicated, even when you’re doing well. There’s usually a time when every investor hits an invisible wall and moving on to the next deal, partnership, or business can feel like a slog. When this happens, it’s a good idea to lean on experienced investors who have been through these waves of success, failure, and stagnation.

    Brandon Turner, host of The BiggerPockets Podcast, is back with live one-on-one coaching calls with three different investors, all experiencing some form of investor paralysis. Brandon talks to Mike who’s having trouble letting go of control on rehabs, Stephanie who’s had past success but can’t pick her next move, and Sterling who wants to build organic relationships with sellers.

    These three investors are in three completely different parts of their real estate investing journey, but all share some of the same headaches. Brandon walks each of them through their predicaments while illuminating some paths forward that could yield them more money, less headache, and a larger portfolio.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Always thinking of yourself as “the general” and not a foot soldier in the war

    Prioritizing time with family over simple outsourceable tasks

    Why real estate investors need to go “a mile deep” to survive in 2021 (and beyond!)

    Building organic relationships with off-market sellers

    Systematizing an outreach network and drip campaign that allow deals to come to you

    And So Much More!

    Keep, Refi, or Sell and Scale? | Live Portfolio Analysis

    Keep, Refi, or Sell and Scale? | Live Portfolio Analysis

    On today's show: a coaching session with David Greene and the winner of a charity auction at BPCon, Carla Holmes from Yellow Square Properties.

    Carla is a long-time investor and rookie to commercial investing. She's been cautious with her real estate investing and never took on debt after she went through foreclosure during The Great Recession. Now, she sits on over a million dollars in equity, spread across multiple properties in the Carolinas. Her recent acquisition is a 4.5-acre commercial property that she’ll convert into a parking lot for big rigs in her area.

    Since this is a brand new real estate class she’s entering into, Carla wants to be absolutely sure she’s crossing all her t’s and dotting her i’s. David walks her through a live analysis going over the hurdles, work, expenses, and income that this property will bring in. He also helps Carla debate whether selling, refinancing, or keeping her current properties is best based on her one-year financial independence goal.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How to analyze a commercial property from scratch with limited property information

    Identifying the drawbacks and new potential income stream opportunities on a property

    Why so many frugal investors avoid debt, even if it could be of benefit to them

    Why you shouldn’t “hit the cones” when investing in a new real estate class 

    Thinking multiple steps ahead when making a move in real estate

    And So Much More!

That’s right, David Greene is back with more real estate answers, some brand new metaphors, and basic Jiu-Jitsu knowledge for the new and experienced real estate investor.

    No Tenants, Toilets, or Trash? It's Possible, Through Self Storage w/ Paul Moore

    No Tenants, Toilets, or Trash? It's Possible, Through Self Storage w/ Paul Moore

    It’s easy to get caught up in the world of residential real estate investing. Maybe buy a single-family buy-and-hold deal, or try and flip a house, or why not BRRRR? But, residential real estate comes with many challenges: complicated evictions, clogged toilets, a noisy tenant in your upstairs unit, and many, many more. But, there is an asset class you can invest in without toilets, tenants, or trash problems.

    Paul Moore, author, capital raiser, and real estate educator joins us to talk about his newest obsession: self storage investing. Why self storage? Maybe it’s because nobody is living in the property, or that many existing facilities have HUGE value-add potential, or maybe it’s the tax savings, or the ability to increase equity by hundreds of thousands, if not millions, seemingly overnight.

    There are so many reasons why self storage investing could be one of the greatest yet rarely spoken of assets in the world of real estate investing. Wondering how you can get started in this high-profit, low-maintenance investing world? Grab Paul’s new book, Storing Up Profits!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Why commercial real estate allows you to build wealth faster, smarter, and with scale 

    The four strategies you can use to build your self storage empire 

    The massive tax-saving strategies you may be missing out on

    Looking for value-add that’s hidden in plain sight

    The seven paths a new investor can take to get started in the self storage industry

    Income opportunities that could turn thousands in revenue into millions in equity

    And So Much More!
