    Interview with my Student Andy About Airbnb Rentals

    Interview with my Student Andy About Airbnb Rentals

    On this podcast episode, I interview my student Andy Saintilus and we talk about his success as a real estate investor, and how and why he transitioned from long term rentals to short term rentals.

    Andy is just 33 years old. He attended his first real estate training event with me around 5 or 6 years ago. Shortly after that, he signed up for my one on one coaching program.

    Over the past 5 years, Andy has purchased 10 rental properties in Miami using the Buy, Repair, Rent and Refinance strategy (BRRR). I loaned him the money on all 10 properties - which is one of the benefits of my coaching program.

    In the past few years, he has transitioned his long term Section 8 rentals into short term vacation rentals that are listed on Airbnb. He now has all 10 properties in Miami listed as short term rentals on Airbnb.

    Andy now generates over $50,000 a month in income from Airbnb. He has also increased his net worth by almost 2 million dollars. And he is only 33 years old! In November, Andy quit his corporate job for good. He now has a life of financial freedom.

    His story is truly inspiring. If you are a new real estate investor, listen to his story and get the motivation and inspiration that you need to start learning how to buy rental properties with other people's money using the buy, repair, rent and refinance strategy.

    Andy will be at our Airbnb and Short Term Rentals Boot Camp next weekend. If you want to attend call our office at (561) 948-2127

    The Opportunity in Bank Owned Properties

    The Opportunity in Bank Owned Properties

    On today's podcast episode, I talk about the opportunity that will be created as a result of the ending of the foreclosure moratorium.

    The Foreclosure Moratorium ended in September 2021, however the CDC recommended that banks not pursue homeowners in foreclosure until the end of the 2021. Most banks waited until the end of last year.

    Many States require a 120 day "grace period" before the bank can sue or foreclosure on an individual that is not paying their mortgage. That expired at the end of April 2022.

    So we are now going to see many homeowners who have not been paying their mortgages start receiving notices of default (NOD) or Lis Pendens (foreclosure lawsuit). The net result is that many of these homeowners will have to face some hard realities. They will have to either sell their home or lose it to foreclosure.

    These homeowners who have not been paying their mortgage (some since March of 2000) are going to have only 3 choices which are:

    1. Have the bank agree to a loan modification
    2. Sell their home before the bank takes it
    3. Don't pay and lose their home to foreclosure

    The net effect is that we should be seeing more inventory from these pre-foreclosures, as well as more short sales, and more homeowners listing their home for sale on Zillow.

    The end result will be foreclosure auctions at the court house which turn into bank owned properties.

    In many ways, this is a perfect storm. Interest rates have increased by 2 percent in just the past few months. War and inflation have created havoc in the financial markets. It will be very hard for real estate to remain resilient in the face of all this.

    I anticipate more foreclosures, more short sales and ultimately more bank owned properties. The net result will be more inventory along with less demand.

    As an investor, you should start by learning how the foreclosure process works in your State and you should start marketing to motivated homeowners that in foreclosure.

    This is also a good time for you to learn how to buy pre-foreclosures, and how to complete a short sale package. Start learning how to buy bank owned properties and get familiar with the sites that banks use to liquidate these properties.

    The opportunity is coming. Are you going to be ready?

    Understanding Financial Freedom

    Understanding Financial Freedom

    On today's podcast I talk about understanding financial freedom, the velocity of money and how these concepts are both related to your mindset about money.

    If you could buy a rental property today for $100,000, that was rented to a tenant that paid you $1,000 per month in rent, and your cost to maintain that property was $1,000 per month would you buy it?

    Unfortunately, for most new investors, the answer would be no. Would you feel like you were not getting a return on your money if the property was just breaking even? Most people would feel that way. And that is because they don't understand the velocity of money.

    Let's look what would happen with that same property if you had a 15 year fixed rate mortgage. In just 15 years, the property would be paid off, and you would own it free and clear (with no mortgage). 15 years later, not only would the value of the property double to $200,000, but the rents would double as well (from $1,000 to $2,000). And if you owned that property free and clear most of that $2,000 rent would be going directly into your pocket.

    How many properties like that would you need to own in order for you to be financially free? If you owned just 5 properties, then in 15 years you would have $10,000 per month coming in.
    And you would have enough income to replace the income from your job so you would not need to work (if you didn't want to).

    Look at it another way. How would you save up $200,000 and create an income stream of $2,000 a month if you did not buy that rental property? Also keep in mind that the above is before you take into account the tax benefits of owning those rental properties. Each property that you purchase, will lower the amount of taxes that you pay. The reason for this is because the property taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs, and depreciation are all tax deductible. So even though the property is 'breaking even" as far as taxes are concerned it is losing money. A large part of that is because of depreciation. And that means that you will pay less taxes.

    So the real question is not "can you afford to buy a rental property". But rather can you afford to NOT buy a rental property?

    You work hard at your job and right now you have taxes taken out of your paycheck and you have no control over your tax situation. Owning just one rental property would change that since you would now be able to deduct the expenses related to that property.

    If you add up the benefits of the increase in the value of the real estate, increase in rental income and tax deductions, then you will see that investing in rental properties is one of the easiest ways to create financial freedom.

    Exit Strategies in Real Estate

    Exit Strategies in Real Estate

    On today's podcast episode, I talk about exit strategies in real estate.

    I find that too many educators and real estate podcasts out there are focusing on the acquisition strategy and finding properties. While finding deals is important, I think it's equally important to understand what to do with a property once you own it.

    Ironically, what you plan on doing with the property once you own it, is directly related to finding properties.

    If you know what you are looking for, then you know where to search and what to search for. This is the biggest mistake I see new real estate investors make. They are not sure what they are looking for. Once you identify the type of property that you want, then you can focus on the exit strategies which are:

    *Buying Rental Properties For Wealth
    *Selling Rentals with Owner Financing
    *Selling Rentals with Rent to Own
    *Fixing and Flipping The Property
    *Airbnb & Short Term Rentals

    Ultimately, if your goal is to create wealth and financial freedom, then you should focus on buying rentals and short term rentals. Holding real estate long term is what will make you wealthy.

    Buying Houses on Terms

    Buying Houses on Terms

    On today's episode, I talk about buying houses on terms. This is a follow up to our previous podcast episode, which spoke about the Novations Strategy. If you have not already listened to that episode I encourage you to do so.

    In today's market, if you are doing direct to seller marketing, you are going to be facing sellers who know that the market is hot and know that they can get top dollar.

    You are going to encounter many scenarios where the seller wants a retail price or close to retail, and as a cash investor you simply cannot pay that much.

    If you are paying cash, you are typically buying properties at around 70 cents on the dollar. Usually you are using a hard money or private lender to buy properties for cash and because the rates are high, you have to buy at a significant discount for the deal to make sense.

    But is there a case for you to buy properties at a higher price like 80 to 90 cents on the dollar? There may be, if there is existing financing in place and the rate is very low on that financing.

    The two strategies that I talk about today are both "buying houses on terms" strategies. I use current examples of seller leads that we are currently working on in our office so that you can see how this works with real life scenarios.

    On this episode I show you examples of buying a house subject to the existing mortgage and also buying a house with seller financing.

    Novations with Eric Brewer

    Novations with Eric Brewer

    On today's podcast episode I invited my friend Eric Brewer, who is a member of my Collective Genius Mastermind to talk about Novations.

    I first heard Eric talking about Novations a few years ago, at one of our mastermind meetings. Since then, I have seen many of my friends from the mastermind implement this method in their own real estate investing.

    This strategy is perfect for deals where the seller wants more than you are willing to pay.

    It also allows you to earn bigger spreads.

    Eric explains how to use this novation method. There are a lot of golden nuggets in this episode! Make sure you take lots of notes.
