    6 Ways to (Safely) Get Rich in TODAY’s Real Estate Market with David Greene

    6 Ways to (Safely) Get Rich in TODAY’s Real Estate Market with David Greene

    Ever heard the expression “what got you here won’t get you there”?

    It’s especially true for real estate investors today. Instead of finding great deals – or getting bailed out thanks to rising values – you’ve got to make great deals and unlock hidden value.

    So we brought in BiggerPockets Podcast host David Greene for a game of “How Do I…”, where he and Brandon break down 6 different real estate investing strategies, and how to execute each one – today – without putting yourself at risk of financial ruin.

    Recorded in front of a live audience at the BetterLife REI Summit last month, this episode covers:- Does traditional 20% down rental property investing still work in 2024?- How to “make” the deal rather than finding it - Two things you must do to successfully BRRR in today’s market- Why this is actually a great market for flipping houses- Is it a good time to wholesale?- How House hacking is up to 7X more efficient than buying rentals- The risks of commercial real estate investing in this environment- A super-detailed breakdown of cap rates and commercial vs. residential financing

    Books Mentioned:- Traction by Gino Wickman - Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert R. Kiyosaki

Brandon is back!… a year later

Big fan of the BiggerPockets podcast, but after Brandon left, just was not the same, His energy transmutes through his message, the very first episode with Jon Gordon was fantastic.

War on woke-ism?

Knew Brendon Turner from bigger pockets and gave the podcast a shot. He had a guest on and the two started a place of reality the slowly drifted to stating false truths like Brandon saying 33% of all high school girls identify as gender fluid, or the guest saying his friend’s school are getting kids gender reassignment surgeries, etc. I was hoping for wealth or real estate advice not false information to fit a political narrative.

Episodes like these feel distracting from what the podcast description is. Wish’s Brendan the best of luck, hope he’s okay.

J-bird472 ,

Chenoa and David Rivera

Average episode, good story about a couple investors. One thing that I’ve noticed though is that Cam doesn’t really add anything to the show. I like Cam and I think he generally has a god message, but he’s basically saying the same things Brandon was saying before he got the co-host. Would like to have him add in his own spin on the show if he is going to be long-term.
