    What does the CDC eviction ban really mean to you?
    Learn how to win home price bidding wars in today's hot market.
    GRE's own Aundrea Newbern joins us!
    Besides working with GRE, Aundrea is an active RE agent in Brunswick, GA. She owns 28 rental doors and has her MBA in Finance.

    3 - Agree to use the seller’s preferred title agent, lender.
    4 - Offer more than the asking price. 
    5 - Offer more earnest money than the customary 1-2%.

    A Real Estate Winner Today: Florida New Build-To-Rent Homes

    A Real Estate Winner Today: Florida New Build-To-Rent Homes

    The pandemic has fueled remote work.
    A New Yorker paying $4,000 rent in a 1 BR apartment can now work from Florida, paying $1,500 rent in a 3 BR & 2 BA single-family home.
    Central Florida benefits from this in-migration. 
    Florida has law that favors landlords, zero state income tax, a low cost of living, beach proximity and of course, warm weather.
    Get the report and learn more at: www.GetRichEducation.com/Orlando
    These Central Florida Build-To-Rent properties are brand new. 
    They often appraise for $5,000 to $10,000+ more than your purchase price. That’s built-in equity.
    Your rent-to-price ratio is often 0.8% to 0.9% for single-family rentals. The average tenant stay is 3+ years in this new construction.
    Get the report and learn more at: www.GetRichEducation.com/Orlando
    The growth and economic diversity in the region is astounding.
    The time is likely “now”: brand new construction, high rent occupancy, cash flow, low interest rates, low insurance premiums, low $160K - $220K property cost.

    Welcome to Get Rich Education. I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. Is homeownership a sham? Is it a rip-off? 
     
    When it comes to the home that you live in yourself, is it better for you to pay rent to a landlord, or own that home yourself? 
     
    For your primary residence, what should you do in your specific life situation? You’ll learn today … on Get Rich Education.
     
    ——————-
     
    Welcome to GRE! From Syracuse, Sicily, Italy to Syracuse, New York and across 188 nations worldwide. I’m Keith Weinhold, this is Get Rich Education.
     
    Usually on this show, you learn about how buy-and-hold rental property, when bought strategically - produces wealth. We’ll return to that next week, but today ...
     
    … it’s about your primary residence. And, when we talk about, should you own your home or is it better for you to pay rent to a landlord - think about how important this is. 
     
    Because whether I’ve had the chance to meet you yet or not, there’s one thing that I definitely know about you, and that is, you are always going to live … somewhere.
     
    Your housing expense is one of the biggest financial expenses in your life.   
     
    Despite that it’s such a substantial financial decision for you, some people revert to orthodoxy - this FLAWED orthodoxy where they think that owning is always better. That’s not true.
     
    I really want you to watch your mind as I tell you this today, because there are very likely a few tripwires installed there … and I am about to hit some of them. So do your best to remain calm … if you must.
     
    Though more people are waking up to the fact that renting is sometimes better, I still think that popular culture has long reinforced this misplaced notion that owning is always better.   
     
    “Are you a homeowner, Greg? No. I rent. Oh.” 
     
    Haha! That’s from the classic comedy movie “Meet The Parents”. Owen Wilson & Ben Stiller - while Robert De Niro - the future father-in-law was party to that chat where he’s thinking that the homeowner is the more apropos suitor for his daughter than the renter is. 
     
    Look, if you can OWN a home and your monthly housing payment is $2,500, but you could instead PAY RENT on an equivalent home for $1,500 - now your cash flow has increased by $1,000. That’s money in your pocket today that could be re-invested at a rate of return.
     
    Now with your $2,500 housing payment in this example - that’s more than just a mortgage payment remember. 
     
    When you own, your HOUSING payment consists of mortgage principal & interest, property tax, property insurance, maintenance, repairs, utilities and more. You’ve got to add all that up to get to $2,500. 
     
    What about that TIME it took you on HOW to repair the leaky faucet when you owned the home? Factor that in.
     
    Now, the homeowner might reply, but at least part of my $2,500 payment is building equ

    Stocks Set To Fall By 80%, Home Prices Surge Above $300K - with Harry Dent

    Stocks Set To Fall By 80%, Home Prices Surge Above $300K - with Harry Dent

    Where are the big investment risks today? Economic forecaster Harry Dent tells us.
    Despite pandemic-driven unemployment, tenants are largely paying the rent.
    The price of an existing American home is now $304,100, surging 8.5%.
    Lumber prices for a new home are up $16K since April. This increases the value of your property’s replacement cost.
    The new 0.5% adverse market condition fee for refinances is annoying. Learn how to avoid it.
    In the pandemic, real estate keeps shining.
    Harry Dent is fired up. He joins me to tell us why he thinks most assets are in a bubble: economics and demographics. 
    His latest book is “Zero Hour”.
    Baby Boomers find renting to be more acceptable today.
    Harry predicts when stocks will fall 80-85%, a crash occurs, and about the profligacy of the Fed printing trillions in the pandemic.

    Why The Rich Are Getting Richer

    Why The Rich Are Getting Richer

    The wealthy are enjoying federal monetary stimulus. Meanwhile, unemployed tenants can now be evicted nationally (check your local law).
    Own assets? Great. Mortgage interest rates are at historic lows; the S&P 500 is at an all-time high.
    (Entire episode transcript is below. Read as you listen.)
    In the pandemic, tenants want single-family homes more than communal apartments.
    Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac want to add a 0.5% refinancing fee. 
    Homebuilder sentiment is high? Why? High demand, low inventory, low rates.
    Stagflation is explained. It is a stagnant economy with high inflation.
    There are signs that inflation is poised to increase.

    Welcome to Get Rich Education. I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. 
     
    The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. I can’t think of any one time in my life where that’s been happening more than it has been than right now.
     
    I’ll tell you why - and what you need to do to get on the right side of that. 
     
    What is going on in the real estate market and what are the real estate economics that matter? Then, a discussion about inflation. Today, on Get Rich Education.
    ____________
     
    Hey, you’re inside GRE. From Manila, Philippines to Managua, Nicaragua and across 188 nations worldwide, I’m Keith Weinhold. This is Get Rich Education.
     
    The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer - and I can’t think of any one time in my life where that’s been happening more than it has been than right now.
     
    Because Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck might now be ... paycheck-less. Some of them are laid off - because of the pandemic - and now they're concerned that there's no national eviction ban.
     
    That’s right. In most states, non-paying tenants CAN be evicted at this time. Now, you’ve got to check your local law.
     
    Well, when is Congress going to do something to relieve those that the pandemic has left unemployed?
     
    Well, they don’t even reconvene until after Labor Day.
     
    Some people are wondering - “Where is the CARES Act 2?” Where are those updated forbearance options, eviction moratorium, the PayCheck Protection Program, and the $1,200 stimulus checks and the stepped-up weekly unemployment compensation?
     
    In fact, Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin had  good metaphor. He said: “Months ago, when we did the first stimulus, we thought the economy faced a pothole and the stimulus put a plate over it so we could navigate. 
     
    Now escalation of the virus may be making that pothole into a sinkhole and creating a need for a longer plate.” That’s the end of what the Fed President said.
     
    Now, look, I think there’s a lot to be said for just letting the free market do it’s job. 
     
    But it’s a little hard to be in this laissez-faire, Austrian economics school of thought when some people could be suffering.  
     
    So that you know what I’m talking about, “lay-say-fare” basically means no government intervention into the free mark

    Homelessness and Real Estate, Chicago Is World Class

    Homelessness and Real Estate, Chicago Is World Class

    You contribute to homelessness. I do too. The problem goes right through real estate.
    Factors include: NIMBYism, minimum wage, salamanders, smoke detectors, and rent control.
    (Complete transcript on homelessness segment below.)
    Then, Chicago is a world class city with lots of economic diversification. Chicagoland’s numbers make sense for real estate investors.
    In northwestern Indiana (suburban Chicago), you avoid the high cost of Illinois property. 
    A typical SFH has $1,350 rent and a $125,000 purchase price.

    Welcome to Get Rich Education! I’m your host, Keith Weinhold, with a two-part show.
    Real estate is a substantial input into homelessness. Why are people homeless - and why might you & I be partly RESPONSIBLE for it, in fact?
     
    The second part - in general, world class cities don’t make any sense to invest in for cash flow - New York, LA, DC, London, Singapore … but we’re going to discuss one “world class” city that actually DOES. Today, on Get Rich Education.
    __________________
     
    Here it is - hey! You’re inside GRE. From Sarasota, Florida to Sarajevo - in Bosnia and Herzegovina - and across 188 nations worldwide. 
     
    I’m Keith Weinhold, this is Get Rich Education.
     
    Even in the affluent United States, there is a large and growing population of vagrants - homeless people … more than half a million of them … and you & I … unknowingly play a role in keeping them homeless.
     
    Why are people homeless? Well, the #1 reason is real estate-related. So that’s why I’m talking about it in the first of two show segments here.
     
    Let’s look at the Top 5 cited reasons that people are homeless.
     
    5th most common - Substance abuse - drugs.
    4th - Mental illness.
    3rd - Poverty ...OK, that’s sort of an obvious one.
    2nd - Unemployment
    1st - Lack of affordable housing
     
    Lack of affordable housing is the #1 reason that people are homeless. Well, one mission here at GRE is that we PROVIDE society with affordable housing.
     
    But, it’s generally not the same kind of Class D, lowest-end housing that there is - and that homeless people are looking to get into. 
     
    We focus on properties just below the median housing price in some of the lower-cost U.S. metros - B-class and C-Class. That’s a notch or two above where those on the brink of homelessness would be.
     
    The homeless population is more visible in my own home city since the pandemic - and perhaps yours too … now that the unemployment rate is 10%. 
     
    I’m going to tell you what contributes to homelessness - and a lot of this has to do with real estate: contributors are carbon monoxide detectors, minimum wage, salamanders, NIMBYism, and over the long term: rent control.
     
    Now, before we unpack that. Let’s define homelessness.
     
    One of the better accepted definitions is - a condition where people lack "a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence". That’s “homelessness defined”. 
     
    I think you & I can agree that “homeless” is not the best techn

Loving this podcast!

Keith is an awesome host and I love his energy! This podcast is a must listen for anyone looking to learn about financial freedom!

Aundrea35 ,

One of the best shows out there!

I have been a listener of the GRE podcast for many years. It’s by far my favorite real estate-related podcast, as Keith often focuses on macro economic issues that have a direct impact on real estate investing. Not a lot of real estate podcasts take this approach. His guests are high quality and the information provided is very insightful. Great job!

Ricduds ,

Love the show

This show if phenomenal! Keith is a bright guy and has a lot of paradigm changing thoughts. If you haven’t listened to episode 6, please do!
