    The Difference Between Loan and Deal Sponsorships with Josh Cantwell

    The Difference Between Loan and Deal Sponsorships with Josh Cantwell

    Last week, I was in Houston to check out the 552-unit and 104-unit buildings that I own with some JV partners. I also attended a mastermind with intermediate to advanced residential investors who are new to multifamily, but have extensive experience flipping and wholesale homes and oversee 200-500 units. 
    One thing that I noticed, as they grow their businesses and start to do larger deals, many of these guys are now trying to sponsor loans–and their questions inspired today’s episode. 
    If you’re looking to have a better understanding of the differences between loan and deal sponsorships, I hope you’ll get a ton of value from this episode. You’ll learn what a deal and loan sponsor’s roles and responsibilities are, you’ll see how these roles play out in my own deals, and how to find someone with the key experience to make your dream deal a reality.
    Key Takeaways with Josh Cantwell
    Why the deal sponsor is the person who finds the deal and takes the lead on putting together the dream team. How the loan sponsor gets qualified for the loan needed to do the deal–and how much liquid capital they’ll need to make it happen. How I became the deal and loan sponsor on a property I’m buying right now. Why it’s so important to build out your network to find loan sponsors. How to find key people with the experience you need.

    Passive Real Estate Investing for Busy Professionals with Harry Nima Zegarra

    Passive Real Estate Investing for Busy Professionals with Harry Nima Zegarra

    If you're a busy professional and have thought about getting into real estate investing, you may have the resources, the network, and even the capital to become an investor. Maybe you've been thinking about it for a while, but you keep telling yourself that you don't have the time.
    In this conversation, my goal is to prove that you have everything you need to get started.
    Dr. Harry Nima Zegarra is a very successful physician and real estate investor from the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Fifteen years ago, he emigrated from Peru to the United States with nothing, became a residential real estate investor, and eventually grew into multifamily, co-syndications, and sponsorships. And now, he's the principal in a 105-unit acquisition in the Fort Worth market, and I'm excited to talk to him about his journey.
    If you're ready to take your hard-earned income to the next level and find out how you can get involved in making great deals, especially your first ever real estate deal, but that voice in your head keeps telling you that you're too busy to do so then this episode is for you.
    Key Takeaways with Harry Nima Zegarra
    How to break into the world of real estate when you have the resources but not the time. How to network with other people who have big networks to get access to equity. Why commercial real estate is a team sport–and why you need to focus on your unique strengths, rather than trying to provide time, network, and capital all at once. The difference between being in the front of the house vs. the back of the house in commercial multifamily real estate. Harry’s three favorite social media platforms and what he’s doing to educate his audience and attract new investors. Want the Full Show Notes?

    Case Study: LOI to the PSA in 10 Steps with Josh Cantwell

    Case Study: LOI to the PSA in 10 Steps with Josh Cantwell

    I wanted to jump on here for a quick solo episode and share some great news and how we got it done. We just closed on a fiercely competitive, 296-unit deal. Over the last few weeks, we’ve been going back and forth with the seller, their attorney, and the brokers to negotiate the fine details and agreements from our letter of intent. Standard stuff, right?
    In our letter of intent, we agreed on a purchase price of $16.3 million and $350,000 of non-refundable earnest money to get the deal across the finish line within 90 days. We had to settle a number of issues, including the closing duration (and if the purchase price would go up if we failed to close in time), which title company we would use, and how much prorated rent the owner would receive–just to name a few.
    In this episode, I want to walk you through how our letter of intent (LOI) set the framework for our purchase sales agreement (PSA) and what we did to get the best possible terms under the circumstances. For anyone about to negotiate their first significant deal (or any deal for that matter), I hope these insights will offer some value to you.
    Key Takeaways with Josh Cantwell
    How we set the closing terms for this deal and why it led to a negotiation with the seller about which title company we were going to use. How we negotiated prorated, past due, and additional rents. Why everything in an apartment building, down to the doorknobs and keys, is negotiable. How we wrapped our negotiations to close on the property by May 1 for $19.5 million–and why it will be worth over $26 million by the time we’re done with it. Want the Full Show Notes?

    Running A High-Octane Offense for Success in Real Estate with Tone Robinson

    Running A High-Octane Offense for Success in Real Estate with Tone Robinson

    There’s a saying in sports that the best offense is a great defense. But can the same be said in real estate? Even if you’re a passive investor, you need to be looking for a combination of off-market, distressed, and on-market opportunities. You need a team that can help you make the deal happen. You need crews that can get the properties market-ready, and you need managers who can help deliver consistent returns.
    For this conversation, I’m thrilled to welcome my good friend Tone Robinson. Tone is a wealth builder, investor, speaker and author. We’ve known each other for 25 years, and we played college football together long before either of us entered the world of real estate. 
    In addition to owning his own portfolio, he provides an array of services to people who want to be passive investors in the Cleveland area. In his book, The Offensive Playbook: 9 Rules for Guaranteed Real Estate Success, he empowers the reader to go beyond the surface and build a great team to help implement a winning investing strategy.
    In this episode, Tone walks us through how he helps investors, the rules you need to follow to have success in real estate, and why education is much more important than trying to predict any market.
    Key Takeaways with Tone Robinson
    How Tone works with people who want to become passive investors in the Midwest. Why it’s so important to know what you bring to the marketplace as an investor and understand the trends in that market before you dive in. How Tone finds, secures, and manages contractors to reduce risk where possible. Why Tone got interested in real estate from a young age–and why his reasons probably apply to you, too. What makes the Midwest so great for entering into real estate right now–and what you can do to get your boots on the ground. Want the Full Show Notes?

    Becca Hintergardt on the 6 Steps to Living Internationally on Passive Income

    Becca Hintergardt on the 6 Steps to Living Internationally on Passive Income

    For anyone that is interested in retiring early, moving abroad, living off of passive income, and spending your days on the beach of your dreams, today’s interview is for you! 
    My guest today is Becca Hintergardt. Becca is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area with lots of experience with multifamily deals as a co-syndicator and operator. In the middle of the COVID pandemic, she made some moves and eventually picked up her family and moved to the blue zone in Costa Rica to have some fun in the sun and live the Caribbean lifestyle. She tells her story in her book, 6 Steps to Put Your Income on Autopilot and Move Overseas, which you can download at HintInvestments.com. 
    In this episode, Becca walks me through the six steps you need to take to move internationally and live off your passive income. You’ll learn how long it takes to set this up, and you’ll be surprised to learn that it doesn’t take as long as you think. Lastly, we discuss how to put together the income to move and how to continue generating passive income after you do it. I hope you’ll enjoy this episode as much as I did.
    Key Takeaways with Becca Hintergardt
    The unique health benefits of living in blue zones. Why Becca left the San Francisco Bay Area–and why so many people are leaving major cities in the wake of the COVID pandemic. The big thing so many people overlook when trying to assess whether or not they could live off of passive income. How multifamily investments played a role in Becca’s passive income planning. Why you can’t live an international lifestyle accidentally–but you CAN pull the levers to make it a reality in a year or less. Want the Full Show Notes?

    One Simple Trick to Stop Procrastinating with Josh Cantwell

    One Simple Trick to Stop Procrastinating with Josh Cantwell

    An investor recently asked me for a ten-year cash flow study of one of our apartment buildings. To be honest, it's not something I'm looking forward to doing. I feel like it's at best an educated guess–and so does the Federal Reserve. None of us can predict interest rates or rent rates, and the work doesn't feel productive to me.
    So I've been putting this projection off for a few weeks. Not because I'm lazy, but I definitely am procrastinating–primarily because we've already raised all the money we need to do this deal.
    I'll keep this episode short and sweet. Today is all about overcoming procrastination, not just in writing cash flow studies but in anything you want (or need) to do. I'm sharing the simple trick that helped me finish overdue projects, reduce my body fat to 5% in my early thirties, find deals, and achieve so much more. It's worked for me, and I hope it will help you too.
    Key Takeaways with Josh Cantwell
    The main reasons why we procrastinate. How accountability partners force us to take action. The importance of being aware of your calendar. Why we’re so comfortable letting ourselves down, but not others. Get started right away to find your accountability partner, set a meeting, and get something done. Want the Full Show Notes?
