    Hurry Up and Fail: Lessons on Turning Missteps into Success

    Hurry Up and Fail: Lessons on Turning Missteps into Success

    How do you become successful? If you’re any self-respecting entrepreneur, you learn to fail faster. It feels great to win, but on today’s episode, author Dave Mason shares how some of the best and brightest forged HUGE careers or built massive real estate empire through failure. We’ll talk through case studies of Spanx, Mt. Everest attempts, and much more. Hopefully you’ll learn that hurrying ahead, rather than waiting until you’re ready to move forward, is ONE key to short term losses but long term gains.







     




     
    Plus, what’s the next “big thing” in home construction? How about 3-D printed homes? One company in Austin, Texas is busy doing it. Should you pursue hot new tech? We’ll share our thoughts on the technology, whether you should dip your toe in that pool, and also, some thoughts on other areas of tech that you may want to focus more on.











     
     
    Of course, we’ll still share Doug’s pop quiz, we’ll answer a call from a Deeder, AND much, much more (including cookie talk!). It’s another great episode of the Stacking Deeds Show!

    Mortgage and Financing Basics with Greg McBride from Bankrate.com (SD60)

    Mortgage and Financing Basics with Greg McBride from Bankrate.com (SD60)

    The world of financing is far more at the heart of a real estate deal than a new investor may know. By structuring the right financial package, you'll be able to stretch your money further, so that you can either grow your real estate empire more quickly or use your freed up funds to furnish the property, make repairs, or cover vacancies. You truly need to know how to structure a deal to get head when you enter the real estate sphere.
    But before you learn about alternative financing, you need a good foundation. Sadly, we've found most new investors are working from a series of half-lessons and nearly half-truths about basic mortgages. That's why we asked Greg McBride from Bankrate to join us. As Bankrate's Chief Analyst, Greg is a pro at evaluating between the 15 and 30 year options, knowing how adjustable rate and balloon mortgages work, and more. He also knows how to navigate the mortgage industry so you're on the lookout for hidden fees, suspiciously low interest rates, and loan processing snafus that may hold up your project. We talk about all of those issues and more with Greg so that you have a solid foundation in the basics before buying that first rental!
    But before that, in our headline segment, Crystal and Joe cover a question that we've already been asked a ton: when is the right time to buy a home? We tackle this question by diving into an answer from one real estate pro who helps even the most green investor realize that it isn't the timing as much as creating the right deal that will make you a success in this business.
    Later, we take a call from Deeder John, who wonders about a vacation rental property that might be either a long term rental or maybe a short term rental property. How do you decide which is the best option for a given address? We'll talk through our criteria so that if you're deciding how to wring the most money from your real estate, you aren't left wishing you'd done things differently.

    Current Trends In This Market With Experts in Real Estate Law, Investing, and Professionals

    Current Trends In This Market With Experts in Real Estate Law, Investing, and Professionals

    On today’s show Crystal and Joe take a break from helping you with the basics to share what’s happening NOW in real estate. Brian Boyd is a tax attorney and real estate investor who helps investors save money by understanding the law and by making smarter choices. Lauren Keen Aumond specializes in short term rentals and has set up systems to make investing in real estate far easier than most people would imagine. Ali Garced is the host of the Agent Gold Mine podcast and teaches real estate pros how to truly be….professional. Each of these pros share their thoughts on 2024 and help us dive into a discussion about trends that will allow you to better navigate the real estate waters in your preferred area of the market. We’ll cover a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to) the NRA settlement and what it means to investors and real estate pros, pending legislation and how you should think about what may be coming down the line from Congress, and recent changes from AirBnB that affect every short term rental owner. How do you become a great investor? You know what’s going on and respond accordingly without overreacting. Today we help you do just that.











     
    Of course, at the halfway point of this episode Doug will spring his weekly pop quiz which will help you not only invest better, but also become better around the watercooler.

    How To Build a Real Estate Empire Just Big Enough To Fund Your Dreams (with Coach Carson) - Greatest Hits

    How To Build a Real Estate Empire Just Big Enough To Fund Your Dreams (with Coach Carson) - Greatest Hits

    Is your real estate empire working for you or are you working for your real estate empire? Have you ever wondered how it would feel to be free to do whatever you wish, not burdened by a full time job hanging over your head? The problem with many real estate investors is that they trade working full-time for someone else for longer hours, maintaining an unwieldy real estate empire. Today we help you change that as we roll back the clock to the fall of 2023 when we chatted with Chad Carson, AKA "Coach Carson" about building a small but mighty real estate empire. One big enough to fund your dreams but not so big that you're constantly working to maintain it. How do you set all of this up? He'll explain.
    Of course, we'll also include a compelling headline, a call to Ruth's Rotary phone, and some of Doug's eclectic real estate trivia. 
    Enjoy!

    Commercial Real Estate Do’s and Don’ts with Neil Timmins

    Commercial Real Estate Do’s and Don’ts with Neil Timmins

    Commercial real estate is a different beast than what most of our Deeders are used to. You’re dealing with bigger companies who are more likely to analyze the deal carefully and over a different timeframe than the mom-and-pop renting out your AirBnB. They also have different interests, like triple-net leasing and space that’s easily transferable. So what do you need to know? Today we chat with Neil Timmins, an investor in Iowa who by age 29 became the number one REMAX realtor in the state. After many residential projects, Neil had his first opportunity for a commercial deal and took it, and he was hooked. He’ll share the ins-and-outs of the commercial space, how to find your first deal, who to approach, and more.











     
    In our headline, what could go wrong when you invest in a hot market? Plenty. Today we share a cautionary tale so that you don’t make some key mistakes when investing in your first property (or second, third, etc.). Plus, Doug shares his property pop quiz, and more! It’s another exciting day in the back of Ruth’s car learning about real estate!

Bernice knows where to start. Hiring your team? Bernice (of course) knows how to find and interview the right people to make your life far less miserable than the usual (and painful) search. You'll learn a ton and come away inspired after hearing us talk to Bernice!
    Plus, in our headline segment, how does a developer in red-hot Austin, Texas lose money on a multi-million dollar deal? Our headline today is a primer on two of the fundamental aspects of investing in property: holding costs and government intervention. We talk about the do's and don'ts of buying property with lots of caveats on today's show. Plus, we take a call from a Deeder who's JUST about ready to begin investing. What are our biggest pros and cons when it comes to buying real estate? We review not only our favorites (and biggest complaints) but new ones we've learned from our esteemed guests over the first year of doing this podcast.
