    EP240 Solving the Need for Workforce Housing with Scott Choppin

    EP240 Solving the Need for Workforce Housing with Scott Choppin

    As real estate prices increase, and the supply of new construction fails to keep pace with demand, the need for middle income housing is a steadily rising challenge that many communities are experiencing.  Today we’re going to discuss Workforce Housing.  What is it, who benefits from it, and how is it being developed?
    And here to have this conversation is Scott Choppin, a seasoned real estate developer with hundreds of millions of dollars of experience and specialization in workforce housing.  He’s also the founder of Urban Pacific, which specializes in the development of a unique type of Urban TownHome.
    Scott is going to share the development model that he’s employing in middle-income neighborhoods that cater to co-living and inter-family residents.  We’ll discuss the cost saving techniques he’s employing to develop and build these properties without any type of government subsidies.  We’ll also discuss the defensive nature of this type of housing against economic downturns and the financial fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
    There is a very real problem in which wages in our country aren’t keeping pace with the cost of housing.  Creative solutions like the type Scott shares in this episode are necessary if we’re going to overcome these challenges.  You can contact Scott through his website at www.urbanpacific.com or learn more through Urban Pacific’s youtube channel.

    EP237 Mind-Blowing 1031 Exchange Strategies that will Shelter Your Profits from the IRS with Dave Foster

    EP237 Mind-Blowing 1031 Exchange Strategies that will Shelter Your Profits from the IRS with Dave Foster

    As real estate values increase, so too does the idea of selling your investment property and taking your profits off the table.  One of the major considerations in doing so however, are the tax consequences.  Many investors choose not to sell because they simply don’t want to pay taxes on their long-term gains.
    There is a way, however, to take those gains and not pay taxes on them by transitioning those profits into a different investment property. I’m talking about the 1031 exchange, and it’s a tool that you can use to delay paying those taxes.
    Dave Foster is a 1031 Exchange Expert, and he’s here today to help us understand how it works.  Dave is the Founder & CEO of the 1031 Exchange Investor, and he’s also a degreed accountant and serial real estate investor, as well as a qualified intermediary and consultant.  Today he’s going to share his tax saving strategies in order to help you maximize your real estate investment returns.
    We’ll be discussing the timeline you must follow when doing a 1031 exchange, why you must have a qualified intermediary, the types of properties and investments you can do this with, and whether or not you can 1031 into a syndication.  Dave also shares some great examples and unique 1031 strategies that I guarantee will make you say 'Wow'!
    If you’ve ever considered selling an investment property and sheltering your profits through a 1031 exchange, you’ll definitely want to hear what Dave has to say.  You can contact Dave through his website www.the1031investor.com

    EP236 How He's Acquiring 5 to 10 Properties a Month by Negotiating On His Terms with Chris Prefontaine

    To many people the real estate market may seem unpredictable, and the very real fear of losing money has been a huge psychological hurdle to overcome.  Many investors don’t want to be at the mercy of the economy and the banks.
    My guest today has found a way to circumvent that fear and risk by investing in real estate on His Terms.  Chris Prefontaine is rewriting the rules of real estate and coaching investors on how to scale and automate their business without using their cash or credit.  His family business has done over $80 Million in real estate transactions.
    Chris is also the Best-Selling author of 2017’s “Real Estate On Your Terms” and this year’s “The New Rules Of Real Estate Investing”. Chris and his family are acquiring 5 to 10 properties every month and control between $20 to $30 Million --- all done on Terms without using their own cash, credit, or signing for loans. 
    Today we’re going to discuss what it means to invest in Real Estate on Your Terms, the two strategies Chris recommends that new investors prioritize, how he survived the Great Recession, and the Core Values he believes are necessary when starting a business.
