    No More Property Management Headaches

    Are you a landlord that wishes property management was easier? Want to ditch your excel spreadsheet handcuffs? Then this podcast is for you! 
    Property Management can be a pain in the you-know-what, especially for individual landlords, who don't have an extensive portfolio. There is only so much you can do with an excel sheet to ensure that all is running smoothly. There are many different software companies out there that will help institutional investors, but nothing for the individual investor or high-income W2 side-hustler. 
    My guest, Ryan Coon saw this need in the market and developed a property management software to fill this void. Ryan built Avail Property Management with the intention of solving landlord problems. Beyond that, he also wanted to improve the tenant-landlord relationship through efficiency.

From finding tenants, viewing credit history, signing leases to collecting rent — on any device, Avail will handle all those needs and more!

    Diversifying his portfolio with real estate investing as property prices were crashing in 2008
    The reasons why Ryan didn't want to pay a property management company. 
    What tasks Avail takes care of for the individual landlord
    Working with first-time landlords
    Avoiding the landlord pitfalls (there can be many!)
    Making his product affordable for individual landlords (a free version, customization with the premium plan) 
    Adding affiliate income through other best in class offerings to counter the free version
    Deep dive into the product functionality of Avail Property Management 
    How Avail helps with the legal side of property management

    The Power of Tax-Free Growth

    The Power of Tax-Free Growth

    95 out of 100 people will not be able to retire the way they want, due to a lack of education of the most profitable ways to invest their retirement savings. Many have depended on 401Ks for retirement, not understanding that the average rate of return is between 5% and 8%. And that's not counting having to deal with the volatility of the stock market, which could wipe out a considerable chunk of your retirement.
    I think Forbes said it best: 
    "A 401k only works as a retirement savings plan when it's efficient, which it too easily is not. Many come with huge (often hidden) extremely large fees (http://money.cnn.com/2015/01/25/retirement/target-date-fund/index.html)."


    I want everyone to retire comfortably, which is why I have brought Stephen Nagy on today's show. Stephen is a 14-year veteran real estate investor and finances professional, as well as an experienced business development speaker and mentor for The Money School. 


    During this episode, we will cover the differences in 401K and IRA retirement savings versus investing in real estate, and how you can use these retirement funds for better returns. Stephen is going to take you through real-world scenarios, how to find trustworthy financial advisors, and tips on using your home equity line of credit.  


    You are also going to learn about my new favorite resource, The Money School, which I joined this month, and it's already paying off! 


    Transitioning from the finance world into real estate investing.
    Stephen's path to The Money School.
    How to get your mindset right, so your money is right. 
    Trillions of dollars in retirement accounts and less than 5% of IRAs are self-directed. There is a reason why 97% is controlled by 3% of people.
    How to use your retirement accounts (401K, self-directed IRA) for real estate investing.
    Beware of information and people out in the internet universe that claim they have all the answers. Look for the professionals who have run a successful business for years.
    How to find potential investors who have a retirement account that is not providing a strong ROI.
    How to use your Home Equity Line of Credit for investing.
    Finding financial advisors.
    The Money School TV: What it is and the many benefits of becoming a member.
