    Shifting from Multifamily to Self-Storage Investments with Powell Chee

    Shifting from Multifamily to Self-Storage Investments with Powell Chee

    In this episode, we talk to Powell Chee about his start in real estate and why quickly he shifted into multi-tenant assets, the three main roles of a real estate syndication team, a key difference between residential and commercial lending that challenges many investors making the switch, and how to build relationships with commercial real estate brokers that last.
    Powell Chee is a Los Angeles-based real estate investor who does all his investing out of state. After buying his first investment property in 2015, a single-family home in Kansas City, he came to the realization that one door at a time was not going to get him to his goals. Since 2017, Powell has partnered on 7 multifamily properties totaling over 1000 units. As Covid-19 affected the US in 2020, Powell shifted gears from multifamily and expanded his investments into self-storage. He closed his first self-storage property in January of 2021 and is operating it remotely.
    In This Episode We Cover:
    How he got started investing in single-family rentals but quickly shifted into multifamily investing
    How he scaled from those early self-funded apartment communities into larger assets with groups of passive investors
    Why he shifted from investing in multifamily into self-storage investments
    Some tips on forming real estate partnerships
    And much more!

    From Rentals and Flipping to Raw Land Success with Landon and Teria Harris

    Landon and Teria Harris started out rehabbing single-family homes. After a few successful projects, they realized it was not the direction they wanted. The amount of time, work, and capital was more than they wanted to manage. Their love of real estate led them to other investing opportunities. After hearing a podcast on vacant land sales, they immediately knew land investing was the right direction for them!
    Their land business began in 2019 where they immediately set up structure, processes, and tools to build their land business. Within a few short months, their business soared! They were able to build a successful land business and replace Landon’s full-time job in the first year.
    In this episode, we talk to Landon and Teria about the challenges of rental property investing as well as house flipping, how that experience led them to invest in raw land, how they purchased 10 parcels for just $14,000 on their first deal, and the systems and processes they’ve set up to make their raw land business run as passively as possible.
    In This Episode We Cover:
    How Landon and Teria Harris got into real estate investing
    How their experience with house flipping and single-family rentals led them to shift to raw land investing
    How much it cost them to buy their first raw land deal
    How much it costs to market for raw land
    And much more!

    Adventures in Real Estate Investing from a Mortgage Broker with Matt Gouge

    Adventures in Real Estate Investing from a Mortgage Broker with Matt Gouge

    Matt Gouge, aka Matt the Mortgage Guy, got his start in lending back in 2013. As a self-proclaimed math nerd and a people person, he burned his proverbial ships, leaving a steady paycheck with the State of California, for the commission-based world of brokering residential mortgages. He has excelled in the field because he himself is a real estate investor and he can advise clients at a high level. As a real estate investor himself, he is able to help clients not only analyze the mortgage on their primary residence but on potential investment properties as well.
    In this episode, we talk to Matt about his journey from state employee to a commission-based mortgage broker, the power of taking the leap into the unknown from an unfulfilling job, the tale of buying his first property before the Great Recession that is still a rental, and his misadventures investing long-distance.

    From $165K in Debt to Five Single-Family Rentals with Mindy Templeton

    From $165K in Debt to Five Single-Family Rentals with Mindy Templeton

    Mindy Templeton is a Kansas City-based real estate investor who was, at one time, $165,000 in debt. A mindset shift a few years ago led her and her husband to aggressively pay down that debt and start buying single-family rentals in the Kansas City area.
    She and her husband have full-time jobs and are parents to two young children. She started Investinginyourwealth.com about two years ago as a way to track her journey to paying off that $165k of debt, and now that they are debt-free, she is working on building wealth through diversification. She is a firm believer in having multiple strategies for investing, so real estate is not her only strategy, but definitely her primary focus.
    In this episode, we talk to Mindy about the mindset shift she went through that led them to adjust their spending habits, the creative way she acquired the funds for the downpayment on their first rental property, and why she doesn’t want to build a huge portfolio of rental properties.
