1717: Market Collapse via Population Decline
Real estate investing has worked throughout history. It works incredibly well in the markets Jason Hartman recommends. But there's one thing that could derail it (and everything else for that matter), and it's a worldwide phenomenon.
Jason explains what's going on with the population of the world, and why it's a trend worth worrying about.
[2:05] A declining population puts markets at risk
[5:42] For the first time in a long time, the life expectancy for Americans decreased
[8:52] We are thinning out our population deliberately for the first time in human history
[15:13] How our society is destroying families
[19:45] China is now suffering due to population timebomb
[24:57] Watching old movies and TV shows will show you the shift in society

1716 FBF: Finding & Keeping Great Tenants + Tips for Landlords & Property Managers with Real Estate Investor Barb Getty
Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 295, originally published in January 2013.
Jason Hartman is joined by author and real estate investor, Barb Getty, as she talks about her journey into real estate investing, what it takes to be a good landlord or property manager, how to find and keep great tenants, and explains the eviction process.
The second of four children, Barb was born and raised in Gary, IN. She graduated cum laude from Purdue and married soon after. After seven moves in nine years of marriage, her family settled in Indianapolis.
Tragedy struck in 1992 when her 17-year-old son was killed in a car accident. Her daughters were 16 and 14 at the time. Sadly, Barb’s 21-year marriage ended eight months after Todd’s death. She bought a small home needing repairs, and following the fix-up, she and her daughters moved in.
Pleased with that first project, Barb purchased her first duplex (with little money, no credit and no experience), hoping she had the wherewithal to be a landlord. Today, she owns 27+ units -- a mix of single and multi-family, low and middle income rentals. CNBC.com interviewed her recently and the article also appeared in USA Today. Barb has also added high-end property management, consulting and speaking engagements to her business.
Although she hasn’t had an easy road, Barb is both financially and emotionally invested in her work. She invites people to watch a video showing scenes she faces as a landlord in the inner city. It’s very compelling. Barb authored The Landlord Chronicles: Investing in Low and Middle Income Rentals, published in 2010. Armed with a positive attitude and a strong sense of humor, Barb Getty is making a difference in her tenants’ lives, the neighborhood and the city as well.
1715: The Future of Real Estate, Importance of Learning Personal Finance & Building Long Term Wealth
The future of real estate and the future of renters looks pretty good. But that doesn't mean you can just buy and forget your investments, you still have to manage them. Jason Hartman recently did some reading on American's personal finance education and habits, and came away disillusioned.
Listen in as Jason goes over some important things about personal finance, and why you want to be a dairy farmer, not a cattle rancher.
[4:00] Used cars have actually APPRECIATED lately
[7:26] Only about 50% of states require high schoolers to learn about personal finance
[10:39] About 80% of millionaires inherited nothing, and 27% of them never earned $100,000 in a year
[13:55] We need to delay gratification, but give ourselves some rewards along the way
[18:21] Are you a cattle rancher or dairy farmer?
[20:46] Muthiah's 5 Year Plan
1714: 3D Printed Home Myths & Inflation Induced Debt Destruction
The future of housing is a constant discussion, but some of the purported solutions aren't really solutions just yet. Jason Hartman discusses 3D printed homes and container homes, and brings in a clip of a video discussing the matter.
Then Jason takes a listener question about Inflation Induced Debt Destruction and rate buydowns.

1713 FBF: Client Case Study: Vernon Grant on Highest & Best Use of Equity, Maximizing ROI, Retirement Planning
Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 809, originally published in March 2017.
During this case study, client Vernon Grant offers up a classic example of a situation you or your parents may be in right now. Vernon asks Jason for investment guidance on the two properties his parents own that are in vastly different markets. It’s all about the numbers, as Jason breaks down each property by its rent-to-value-ratio (RTV) and the existing debt structures of each. Jason reminds investors to consider depreciation offsets, refi-til-ya-die options and the beauty of renting.
[2:15] If your property doesn’t have good RTV ratios consider selling or refinancing.
[10:43] Vernon has been around property investing his entire life.
[12:00] Vernon needs Jason’s advice about how to handle his parent’s properties.
[14:23] It doesn’t matter where your property is, RTV ratios are almost always the same.
[17:51] The New York market is a cyclical market and may be on the verge of being overvalued.
[25:12] Jason offers the Refi-til-ya-die as an alternative to selling.
[28:35] Why do we trust the advice of strangers more than we trust the advice of our friends and family?
[32:33] It’s important to examine the existing debt structure of the properties.
[34:09] A 1031 exchange may help offset depreciation taxes.
[36:37] How does an investor know when it’s time to 1031 exchange or to refinance?

Honest un-silenced and experienced
Jason is a stand up guy with a wealth of experience and knowledge that helps me make informed decisions. It’s a breath of fresh air when I hit that play button because I know I’m getting raw content in which he is not afraid to speak his truth. Which typically aligns with mine.
Keep up the good work!
Not Just for Real Estate
Always entertaining and educational, and I’m not even a real estate investor. But real estate is such a huge component of our economy it would be silly to ignore it. Plus, he regularly dives into all sorts of investment-related topics. One of the few podcasts on my “must listen” list. Excellent.
Entertaining AND Educational
Jason’s podcasts are required listening when I’m in my car because I know the content is going to improve me as a real estate investor. His knowledge of investing and current economic events is immense and his guests and podcast content always educates, informs, and entertains . I highly recommend this podcast.
