    BiggerPockets Podcast 393: Campus Maintenance Man to $10M in Real Estate Owned with Rick Jarman

    BiggerPockets Podcast 393: Campus Maintenance Man to $10M in Real Estate Owned with Rick Jarman

    Real estate investing... old school!
     
    Rick Jarman (@realestateoldschool on Instagram) joins us today to share some of his hard-won wisdom from 44+ years as a flipper and landlord in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. And it's quite the journey, from cabinet maker and campus maintenance man to cigar-puffing 64-year-old social media influencer!
     
    In this episode you'll hear tales of up markets, down markets, losing it all, getting it all back... and a tornado that wiped out 20 of Rick's 100+ rental houses. He also takes us through his rules for tenant screening, explains why he favors 15-year mortgages, and paints a picture of what it's like to self-manage such a large portfolio of single family homes (with a team, of course).
     
    Give Rick a follow, and if you know someone who'd make a great guest on the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast send them over to biggerpockets.com/guest where they can apply to appear on the show.

    BiggerPockets Podcast 392: $12,500 per Month in 'Pure Cash Flow' With Todd Baldwin

    BiggerPockets Podcast 392: $12,500 per Month in 'Pure Cash Flow' With Todd Baldwin

    A $1 million net worth before the age of 30... through frugality and creative real estate investing!
     
    That's what Todd Baldwin's achieved in a few short years, riding the red-hot Seattle housing market by repeat house hacking, renting by the bedroom, and living way below his means.
    Sure, Todd's benefited from appreciation, but he's also generating monster cash-on-cash returns across his 6 rental properties. And today, you'll learn just how he's doing it: how he finds pocket listings, why he favors new construction, why he pays for a $2,000/month service most landlords would never dream of providing, how he limits roommate drama, and much more.
     
    Wondering if this is legal? We discuss that in detail. Oh, and get this—Todd's all-time vacancy rate? Zero percent. So if you're in a high-priced coastal market, you need to listen to this show. And if you don't, we can pretty much guarantee you'll still enjoy it and pick up a few landlording nuggets along the way.
     
    Know someone who might put Todd's strategy to use? Share this episode with him or her today! And make sure you're subscribed to the show so you won't miss us next week.

    BiggerPockets Podcast 391: Your Real Estate Questions Answered, Live! with Brandon, David, and BP Nation

    Live calls, Dave Ramsey style!
    In this episode we open up the phone (er, Zoom) lines to take audience questions on everything from "should I flip or hold this deal" to "Coronavirus cost me my job... how can I invest now?"
    Brandon and David offer also advice on house hacking, Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs), appraisals, and the pros and cons of tapping a retirement account to jumpstart a real estate investing career.
    We'll be back to our regular programming next week... but let us know what you think of this format. And if you've got 30 seconds to leave us a rating and review in Apple Podcasts, we wouldn't be mad at that either.

    From fashion design work in India, to a corporate career with Nordstrom... to leaving that career to flip 40+ houses in 6 years – all in one of the hottest markets on the planet!
    Seattle investor Leka Devatha has quite a story to tell, and a lot of hard-won wisdom too!

Revert back to audio podcasts?

Great podcast the content and guests are really interesting. Hoping you’ll see this and upload these video podcasts to just audio as well! The video doesn’t download well while driving and cuts out every few minutes. Disappointed the audios aren’t being uploaded anymore!
