    How Corporations Identify Hot Growth Markets Nationwide with John Boyd Jr.

    How Corporations Identify Hot Growth Markets Nationwide with John Boyd Jr.

    How do large corporations decide what part of the country they should move to or build new facilities? It’s much more than a random recommendation, a sale price, or a gut feeling. They do in-depth studies and often hire expensive consultants because it’s a huge investment and they don’t want to get it wrong. 
    In this episode, you’ll hear from site selection consultant, John Boyd Jr., who has his finger on development across the nation. John will talk about the site selection process, the exodus from California and where companies are going, challenges in choosing the right location, industries that are driving growth in various parts of the country, and the impact of climate change. He’ll also share some information on a few of the hottest growth markets in the nation today, including an area near San Antonio, Texas.
    John is at The Boyd Company out of Princeton, New Jersey. It’s one of the most trusted and well-known corporate site selection firms in the nation with clients like Boeing, Chevron, Pratt & Whitney, PepsiCo, Visa International, Shell, Honda Motor Company, Hewlett-Packard, and JP Morgan Chase. John is often invited to speak at conferences and is routinely featured in the global news media to talk about corporate site selection, economic development and the real estate industry.
    If you'd like to learn more about some of the exciting projects RealWealth is doing in the San Antonio area, sign up for a free RealWealth membership and login. We are currently acquiring new parcels of land for build-to-rent homes as part of a syndication. We also have a property team in San Antonio that can help you acquire rental homes on your own with a low mortgage thanks to builder incentives.

    Cost Segregation - An Amazing Tax Savings Tool for Real Estate Investors!

    Cost Segregation - An Amazing Tax Savings Tool for Real Estate Investors!

    One of the most compelling reasons for owning investment property is the huge amount of money you can save on taxes. So it’s extremely important to understand the kind of tax benefits and deductions available to you.
     
    In this interview, you will hear about cost segregation studies and how they can help you depreciate different components of your properties more quickly. There’s also a bonus depreciation that can amplify those savings, a short-term rental loophole, and how much it might cost to get one of these studies done.
     
    Our guest is a new partner with RealWealth to help our members with cost segregation studies. He has experience in tech leadership roles, business development for fintech companies, and online lending. He’s also a real estate investor with a BA in International Business from Texas State University.
     
    You can find out more about our guest and cost segregation on our website. Just log in to the investor portal as a free RealWealth member and look under resources. You can also take a deeper dive into cost segregation by attending our "Unlock Massive Tax Breaks with Cost Segregation" webinar on July 11th at noon. Register for our free webinar at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8552416397016755029. If you miss it, check www.realwealthshow.com for a replay.

    CoreLogic Warns Investors About Climate Risks to Real Estate

    CoreLogic Warns Investors About Climate Risks to Real Estate

    If you haven’t considered the impact of climate-related natural disasters on your real estate decisions, you'll get valuable insights from this episode. Call it climate change or climate risk or simply a natural climate cycle that we’re going through  –  whatever side you are on – there are an increasing number of risks related to our environment that are having an impact on real estate.
     
    In this interview, you’ll hear from Dr. Howard Botts who is the chief scientist and executive director of the science and analytics team for real estate data firm CoreLogic. With 30+ years experience in geo-spatial modeling, he's a recognized expert on natural hazard risk solutions.  He speaks frequently on climate change impacts to the real estate ecosystem, and he says there’s great reason to be concerned.
     
    He’ll discuss climate change vs climate risk and the impact on real estate. That includes tangible impacts on real estate, property insurance challenges that we’re seeing across the country, strategies for getting insurance and managing your properties, how the government and communities are responding, and what individuals can do to protect themselves. 


    Real estate investors will find that the rental property markets RealWealth is focused on are not in the high-risk areas mentioned by our guest. You can find out more with a free RealWealth membership at realwealthshow.com.

    Is the Fed Getting Outdated Data from the Jobs Report?

    Is the Fed Getting Outdated Data from the Jobs Report?

    The jobs report for May was a surprise to the upside, with 272,000 new jobs. Wage growth also came in hotter than expected. Good news, right? But maybe it’s not so good for the fight against inflation. It stokes fear among Fed officials that inflation could heat up again if they cut interest rates too soon. With so much weight given to those reports, just how accurate are they? 
    In this episode, José Torres will explain the jobs report and how the data varies depending on the method used to collect the information. As an economist with decades of high-level experience, he’ll share other insights about the economy, inflation, interest rates, mortgage rates, a possible recession, and how all this impacts real estate and the housing market.
    José Torres is senior economist at Interactive Brokers. Previously he worked as an economist for the US government at the FDIC and the BLS. He also taught economics at the City University of New York and earned a master’s degree in financial economics from West Texas A&M University. He’s given frequent presentations to public officials and private executives and is often asked for interviews by major media outlets in both English and Spanish.
    Stay informed about the housing market, investing, and real estate with a free RealWealth membership. I’ll also be hosting a free webinar with economist John Chang on the housing market next month, on July 25th. You can sign up ahead of time here and we’ll send you a reminder! Thanks for listening! -Kathy Fettke

    What You Need to Know About Syndicated Real Estate Deals

    What You Need to Know About Syndicated Real Estate Deals

    Syndicated real estate deals can be complicated and can look like a lot of legal mumbo jumbo, but you CAN make sense of it all with a few good pointers! And that’s what you’re going to get in this interview – a short-but-sweet overview of the syndicated real estate deal in language you can understand.
    Our guest is a syndication lawyer who will explain things like capital calls and how to deal with them, the difference between a private placement memorandum and an operating agreement, and why it’s so important to look at how the syndicators are defining their terms. One of those oh-so-important terms is the “preferred return.” You definitely want to understand that one! 
    Attorney Bethany LaFlam describes herself as a seasoned deal lawyer, a conscious wealth creator, a real estate investor, and a mother. She has more than 20 years of experience practicing law and is currently a managing partner for the Premier Law Group, which focuses mostly on real estate syndications and funds.
    Among other career highlights is Bethany’s first job at a prestigious Los Angeles law firm called Quinn Emanuel. She then launched a boutique law firm in Newport Beach, California, and merged that practice into a firm in Chicago. Her clients have ranged from real estate syndicators and developers to industries involving aerospace, energy, medical services, and technology.
    If you'd like to put Bethany’s advice into practice, please check out our current syndicated deal in Ridgewater, Oregon. We are building homes there and are offering a 12% preferred return to accredited investors. You can find out more at https://growdevelopments.com

    Rent vs Homeownership: Is the Answer that Simple?

    Rent vs Homeownership: Is the Answer that Simple?

    With interest rates hovering around 7% and housing prices still soaring, does it make sense to be a homeowner? Or would it be wiser to rent, spend less money, and enjoy more lifestyle flexibility? And how will the lawsuits against NAR impact the cost of buying a home? Will they help bring prices down by reducing real estate agent fees?
    These are hot topics for American home buyers and investors. In this episode, you’ll hear from a guest who’s made it his business to democratize real estate agent fees. He also believes that, in many cases, renting is a better financial option than buying. What you’ll hear in this interview is a lively discussion about how the lawsuits against the National Association of Realtors might impact home prices, housing inventory, and real estate agent compensation. The debate also heats up when we discuss the virtues of real estate investing versus stock market investing. If you know me, you know where I stand on that issue!
    My guest, Jack Ryan, is the founder and CEO of REX Real Estate, which is a startup proptech brokerage that provides a digital alternative to the traditional real estate agent model. Jack has an impressive educational background with degrees from Dartmouth College, Harvard Business School, and Harvard Law School. He’s a former Goldman Sachs partner who transitioned into a high school teaching position on the South Side of Chicago before he founded REX. He now resides in Austin, Texas. You’ll find his book on Amazon: “Bringing Adam Smith into the American Home: A Case Against Home Ownership”.

Incredible insights

A must listen for real estate investors who are searching for tips, strategies, and market updates from leading professionals in the industry. Highly recommend.

Ask the Tough Questions

Brandon Turner just lost investors tons of money from his PE firm, Opendoor Capital. Instead of worshipping him, why not ask what is he going to do about it? Hand more keys back to the bank? Come on, Kathy! You don't want scam artists desperately seeking investors to bail him out. He should've stuck with BRRRS

Andy AllCity ,

Love this Podcast!

This is an awesome podcast! I am someone who has been trying to find different avenues for passive income, and this podcast gave me lots of guidance in this journey. I am very appreciative of Kathy’s interviewing style, too: she asks unique questions to her guests whose answers always intrigue me.
