    EP302 Development Strategies for Affordable Housing and Market-Rate Luxury Condos with Nick Earls & Eric DiNicola

    EP302 Development Strategies for Affordable Housing and Market-Rate Luxury Condos with Nick Earls & Eric DiNicola

    Today we’re going to take a look at the Affordable Housing Crisis in the U.S. and how this will become increasingly important to renters and rental property owners in the coming years.  Construction and labor costs have risen to a point where current prices and rents may not justify the expense of building new supply, yet the demand for housing is growing and creating a lack of affordable housing for many people.
    My guests today have positioned themselves to be part of the solution.  Nick Earls and Eric DiNicola are full-time real estate investors, developers, and founders of Winterspring Capital, a private equity firm based out of Boston, MA. 
    Nick and Eric have over $100 Million in past and current assets under their belts and focus on several types of multifamily investment and development strategies.  Currently they have both an affordable housing development in progress, as well as a $25 Million market-rate 32-unit luxury condo development in Boston.
    We’ll also discuss the importance of having a High-Net Worth Investor or group to partner with in order to acquire the best financing from lending institutions.  Nick and Eric also discuss the political and public process they go through in the pre-development phase and share tips on how to react when dealing with aggressive input and feedback from the NIMBY crowd.
    Nick and Eric have a lot of incredible development wisdom to share in this episode.  You can find out more about them through their website: https://winterspringcapital.com

    EP301 Investing in Fun: Hotels, Campgrounds, Amusement Parks and Chicken Wings with Jeff Gebhart

    EP301 Investing in Fun: Hotels, Campgrounds, Amusement Parks and Chicken Wings with Jeff Gebhart

    We’re going to talk about some fun alternative asset classes today that will expand your thinking about what really constitutes rental property.
    My guest today started his career in sports medicine and spent four summers with the Buffalo Bills as an athletic trainer.  It didn’t take him long to realize that he loved business and wanted to become an entrepreneur.
    Jeff Gebhart started flipping single family rentals and then pivoted to buying commercial properties in West Michigan.  His company FNG Properties currently owns roughly $3 Million in Michigan real estate and is a limited partner in over $25 Million in multifamily nationally.
    And here’s the fun part… Jeff is also an executive for Silver Lake Management Company, which operates four Craig’s Cruisers, Silver Lake Chicken Shack, Jellystone Campground, Dunes Express Hotel, and the new Billy Bones Best Ever Wings in Grandville, Michigan.  Jeff is also a partner in Locked 460 Escape Rooms and the bass player for the locally famous Rocket Fuel Haulers, the unofficial #2 best cover band in Michigan.
    Jeff is going to discuss each business model and how it relates to real estate investing, along with the ethos of fun, due diligence and customer service he brings to each endeavor.  You’ll also learn how Jeff and his team realized they were in the restaurant business, even though they considered themselves to be in the ‘fun’ business.  We’ll also talk about choosing your customer, maximizing your efficiency, and why multifamily real estate and passive investing outperform most other assets.
    This is a super fun conversation that I know you’re going to enjoy.  You can contact Jeff through email at jeff@craigscruisers.com

    EP300 Special 300th Episode! Their Journey to Passive Income - From Flipping and Rehabbing to Multifamily and Airbnb Rentals with Jeremy and Melanie Garcia.

    EP300 Special 300th Episode! Their Journey to Passive Income - From Flipping and Rehabbing to Multifamily and Airbnb Rentals with Jeremy and Melanie Garcia.

    Hello and welcome to episode #300!  This is a big number for us here on the Rental Property Owner and Real Estate Investor Show, and I want to thank all of you for being such an incredible and receptive audience.
    To celebrate, I thought we’d invite back two early guests, so we can check in with them to see how their investing has progressed over the years, and how joining professional organizations like the RPOA have catapulted their investing strategies into new and more lucrative asset classes.
    When we first talked with Jeremy and Melanie Garcia on episode #125, they were just getting started through house-hacking, flipping, and rehabbing in Muskegon, Michigan.  That was three years ago, and they now have bought and sold over 65 properties, quit their full-time jobs, and entered into the Airbnb space. 
    Today we’re going to discuss the lessons they’ve learned in scaling their flipping business, why they’ve only worked with hard-money lenders, the aggressive paydown strategies they have to achieve passive cashflow, wraparound mortgages and reverse-engineering their business to achieve the lifestyle they dream of.
    We’ll also discuss the multifamily property they recently acquired and the number one thing they did to boost net operating income, as well as their Airbnb strategy and how they differentiate their properties from other short-term rentals.
    I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Jeremy and Melanie, and gain some tips on how to accelerate your investing business.  You can find out more about them through their website:  www.staymuskegon.com and find out more about the Short Term Rental Association at:  https://www.shorttermrentalassoc.com

    EP299 What You Need to Know about Generation Z Rental Trends and Coliving Housing with Johnny Wolff

    EP299 What You Need to Know about Generation Z Rental Trends and Coliving Housing with Johnny Wolff

    Today we’re going to talk about one of my favorite topics – demographics.  Specifically, how Generation Z is going to amplify the trends that millennials have already established, such as delaying marriage and living with their friends into their 30’s. 
    It pays to understand these trends and the disruption they create in the traditional rental housing market.  Concepts such as Shared Housing and Coliving are being monetized by savvy investors who see this as a lasting and lucrative trend.
    My guest today is one of those investors.  Johnny Wolff has roots in Silicon Valley and is the CEO and Founder of HomeRoom Coliving, which is one of the fastest growing coliving companies in the United States.
    Today Johnny is going to compare and contrast the Millenial and Gen Z demographics and explain the minimum and maximum technology and services they expect to encounter when renting.  Johnny will share the app he uses to create 3D tours, floor plans and dimensions of his properties, and the way he conducts his virtual tours and video interviews.
    We’ll also talk about the type of property that works well for coliving, and how Johnny maximizes the space by adding bedrooms in order to increase rent income per square foot.
    If you’re looking for ways to add upside value to the traditional rental housing model, then you definitely want to hear how Johnny is increasing net income by over 30%.  You can find out more about Johnny and HomeRoom Coliving through email: johnny@livehomeroom.com or website: https://livehomeroom.com

    EP298 How His Painful Real Estate Experiences Boosted His Street Smart Success, with Roger Becker

    EP298 How His Painful Real Estate Experiences Boosted His Street Smart Success, with Roger Becker

    My guest today is a successful entrepreneur and real estate investor who hosts the excellent podcast called “Street Smart Success”.
    Roger Becker is also a great guy and is not afraid to share the ups & downs of the deals he’s done, which include single family, commercial properties, and a rent-controlled multifamily in San Francisco.
    Today Roger goes where very few investors care to travel --- he’ll be sharing some of the more painful investments he made and the lessons he learned from them.  He’ll discuss the duplex he house hacked and how he was barely able to pay the mortgage each month.  We’ll also talk about the 100% loss he experienced on a commercial office and retail property when he partnered with someone that seemed to know what they were doing but didn’t.
    Roger will also go into detail on the 5-unit Rent Controlled Multifamily he acquired in San Francisco, and why he had to sell it when he realized that the tenants would never move out and allow him to increase rents to market rate.  We’ll also discuss the difficult decision he faced to condo-ize the building, and how the next investor he sold it to did just that and faced the wrath of the neighbors, city, and media.
    I know you’re going to enjoy listening to Roger’s stories and learning from his sometimes painful experiences.  You can contract Roger through email: roger@streetsmartsuccess.com
    And be sure to check out his excellent podcast “Street Smart Success”.

    EP297 Security Deposit Insurance: Is this an option you should offer your residents? With Paarag Sarva

    EP297 Security Deposit Insurance: Is this an option you should offer your residents? With Paarag Sarva

    Across the United States, Security Deposits tie up over $45 Billion dollars a year in non-interest-bearing accounts, and neither the landlord or the renter benefits from these funds while they’re just sitting there.  The security deposit is meant to protect the landlord from any damages caused by the renter, but often when it comes to serious damage the landlord will have to take the tenant to court to get paid and often does not recoup the time, money and effort that this process requires.
    There is an alternative to security deposits that some states are just beginning to recognize as legal.  The concept of Security Deposit Insurance has been gaining momentum over the past several years, and my guest today is going to explain how it works to the landlord and renter’s benefit.
    Paraag Sarva is the co-founder of Rhino, the leading security deposit insurance provider in the U.S. and he’s spent 10 years as a landlord in the New York metro area with over 250 units.
    Today we’re going to discuss the disruptive nature of Security Deposit Insurance, how it works, the costs and benefits, and whether or not you or your property manager can provide this at your properties.
    You can contact Paraag and find out more about Rhino Security Deposit Insurance by going to https://www.sayrhino.com
