    Using OnlyFans to Fund Ownership in Her First BRRRR w/ Brin Amberlee

    Using OnlyFans to Fund Ownership in Her First BRRRR w/ Brin Amberlee

    You could say that Brin Amberlee isn’t a traditional real estate investor. She doesn’t have tons of experience with property management, construction, or investing, but she does have the will to succeed. After buying her primary residence in Las Vegas, Brin was prompted by friends to start listening to The BiggerPockets Podcast, where she learned about the mind-blowing BRRRR strategy. Brin's funding source for the deal? Her OnlyFans business!

    Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, she knew that investing in her hometown would be a perfect place to practice her first BRRRR, turning an old house into an instagramable short-term rental. With help from her father, she is personally taking the time to demo, rehab, and design this property, top to bottom.

    Brin touches on everything from finding an investor-friendly agent, to viewing properties, analyzing deals, getting financing, growing your personal brand, and more. She has some big plans to buy even more short-term rentals after this first BRRRR, and we doubt we won’t see her back on The Real Estate Rookie podcast very soon, with a lot more units to her name!

     In This Episode We Cover

    Resisting lifestyle creep so you can use extra money to invest

    Why your first BRRRR doesn’t need to be perfect

    Surrounding yourself with those who achieve greatness and distancing from those who don’t

    Vacation home mortgages vs. conventional mortgages on short-term rentals

    Building your brand on social media and beyond

    The importance of keeping healthy reserves in case a rehab goes over budget

    And So Much More!

    ‘Building’ Wealth as a 24-Year-Old with 12 New Construction Projects

    ‘Building’ Wealth as a 24-Year-Old with 12 New Construction Projects

    New construction is an enigma to many real estate investors, and especially to rookies. When building a new house, you need to understand engineering, permitting, construction, and a more complicated funding structure. This didn’t stop Donovan Adesoro, house hacker turned home builder from keeping the investment train going.

    Although Donovan had a background in engineering, he didn’t have much experience with building homes. He started off buying a duplex property to house hack, which turned out so well that he wanted to buy another. The problem? Not enough cash to make the down payment. So he wondered, “what would it cost if I built one of these?” Donovan discovered that he was able to use raw land as a down payment for a new construction loan. So if he had enough to buy the land, he had enough to build the whole house!

    Now, at only twenty-four years old, Donovan has twelve lots either ready for a new build, partially through construction, or about to be sold. He’s taken advantage of the huge appreciation we’ve seen in the past two years and makes it clear that even if you don’t have money, you don’t have to give up on a deal.

    In This Episode We Cover

    The many costs that go into developing a new construction home

    Engineering, permitting, contracting, and other key parts of home building 

    Using partners to cover costs when you aren’t able to come up with enough cash

    House hacking as a way to get your start in real estate investing 

    Always having multiple different exit strategies so you come out profitable

    Renting your car for extra cash and passive income

    And So Much More!

    96 Units in 5 Years By Combining Long & Short-Term Rentals

    96 Units in 5 Years By Combining Long & Short-Term Rentals

    Five short years ago, Avery Carl didn’t own ninety-six rental units. She didn’t have her real estate license, she hadn’t founded The Short Term Shop or The Mortgage Shop, and she did not have a book written on short-term rental investing. But now, Avery has all those things, and she did all of them in only half a decade.

    Avery’s first venture into real estate started by her saving up every penny she could to buy a property in Nashville. After some success, she asked, “what’s the most bang for my buck in real estate?” The answer: short-term rentals. Seven of her units alone brought in over six figures in just July, proving her point that vacation rentals are a necessary part of any investor's asset collection.

    Now, she manages her own short-term rentals and long-term rentals, she also helps teach others how they too can start investing in short-term rentals and even goes as far as to help them to get financing. All of this was done in a very short time period, and all of it proves that hard work can fuel financial freedom through real estate investing.

    In This Episode We Cover

    What to look for in a short-term rental or vacation rental market 

    Why short-term rentals are far more active investing than long-term rentals

    Staying up to date on your city’s short-term rental laws and regulations

    The software and systems Avery uses to analyze a deal

    1031 exchanges and using them to massively grow your portfolio (tax-free!)

    Getting out of the fear of overpaying for a property through detailed analysis

    10 Units in Multiple States, All in Just Under 2 Years!

    10 Units in Multiple States, All in Just Under 2 Years!

    Tony Robinson has some great ideas, like creating a short-term rental empire in both Joshua Tree, California, and the Smoky Mountains over in Tennessee. Tony talked so highly of the latter investing region, that today’s guest, Cale Delaney decided to pack his whole family into the minivan and make the 10+ hour drive to check out the area. Shortly after, Cale was under contract for not one, not two, but three cabins!

    This wasn't Cale’s first experience with real estate investing. Back at the beginning of 2020, Cale had a mental shift where he realized that real estate could be the key to setting him financially free. He scoured homes all over his area of Florida until he came across a fourplex which rejected one offer from him but later accepted another. He made three of these units long-term rentals, and the other one a short-term rental.

    Cale went from zero to ten units in only a year and a half or so, without a ton of management experience of extravagant funding. If he can do it, you can too!

    In This Episode We Cover

    How to get your first property under contract, even if you keep getting rejected

    Managing locally before stepping into long-distance investing

    How a quick closing can lead to more deals in your pipeline

    Getting off-market properties under contract even in a competitive area

    Financing real estate investments using conventional loans, HELOCs, and more

    Scheduling time now to plan for freedom tomorrow

    And So Much More!

Great podcasts.lots of ads.

Love the podcast but would love to hear more about real estate not just ads.

Adds adds and more adds

I get it you need to make money but listeners are blasted with 5-7 mins of adds then half way through the episode you get 2-4 mins of more adds. The hardest part is the guests all seem to partner and can never get it done without others so they leverage risk onto others and whiles it’s interesting it’s tough to get behind these guests who up front are claiming 20-50 units who only own 10% of the portfolio.
