    Quick Take - A Step-By-Step Pathway to Hosting Short-Term Rentals with Airbnb Superhost Jake Cohen

    Quick Take - A Step-By-Step Pathway to Hosting Short-Term Rentals with Airbnb Superhost Jake Cohen

    Quick Take - (Full Episode - #81 - Link Below to Full Episode)

    Welcome Jake Cohen, a firefighter and real estate investor living in Colorado. Jake is an Airbnb Ambassador and an Airbnb Superhost for over five consecutive years.

    Much of our spirited conversation focuses on the first question that any investor should be asking - why am I doing this in the first place? Getting clarity on the goal helps Jake shape his short-term rental business in a manner that best suits his and his family's lives.

    Jake grew up in the hospitality business and is putting his years of experience to work as the founder of Step By Step BNB and the co-owner of Master Vacation Rentals, where he manages his own investments and helps clients run theirs at the top level possible.
    Jake's pathway to owning and managing multiple real estate investments started at a young age on the shores of Lake Tahoe, when his parents were house hacking a small bed and breakfast before that was even a branded term!

    After college, his family called upon him to run their second bed and breakfast in Palm Springs when the manager unexpectedly left.

    When Jake moved to Colorado, he saw an emerging real estate market with multiple investment opportunities. There, he partnered with his mom in an effort to better set up her retirement income. That endeavor has taken off, and they now have five investment properties in Steamboat Springs and in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

    In this episode, we discussed:
    - Jason and Jake meeting at the STR Wealth Retreat in Miami
    - How Jake first started in real estate helping his parents house-hack (before that was even a branded term)
    - Jake's journey from San Diego to Lake Tahoe to Palm Springs to Colorado
    - Having support from family members to have the right mindset for getting involved in real estate investing
    - The benefits of being able to use your own STRs for your family vacations
    - Choosing markets and having short term rentals in different parts of the country
    - Deciding to take on co-hosting clients
    - How life has changed since leaving his W-2 job
    - Creating a stable retirement income for Jake's mom through short-term rentals

    Quick Take - Breaking into Your Imprisoned Retirement Funds For Your Real Estate Investments with Tony Unkel

    Quick Take - Breaking into Your Imprisoned Retirement Funds For Your Real Estate Investments with Tony Unkel

    Quick Take - (Full Episode - #80 - Link Below to Full Episode)

    Did you know that you can purchase real estate using your Self-Directed IRA?

    For a lot of the people interested in financial independence and retiring early, having money locked away into an IRA or 401k can feel relatively daunting.

    Self-directed IRAs empower investors to grow their retirement accounts with alternative assets such as private equity, private placements, precious metals, and - our favorite asset class - real estate.

    Meet our guest Tony Unkel, Business Development Manager for The Entrust Group.

    Tony works with investors throughout the US, helping them understand the possibilities of self-directing their retirement plans and purchasing rental properties with their Self-Directed IRAs and tax-advantaged plans.

    The Entrust Group has worked with investors for over 40 years, assisting them by purchasing alternative investments with retirement funds and administer the buying and selling of assets that are typically unavailable through banks and brokerage firms.

    Self-Directed IRAs provide investors with the freedom to invest in almost anything. With that said, each investment strategy has a set of rules that you’ll need to abide to keep your Self-Directed IRA in good standing, and Tony walks us through all of that.

    In this episode, we discussed:
    - How real estate professionals can help their clients invest in property tax-free.
    - Breaking into your imprisoned retirement funds and using them for real estate and other investments
    - What can and can't you invest in with your Self-Directed IRA?
    - Who should consider making a portion of their retirement funds self directed?
    - What level of due diligence will a custodian record keeper administrator do for any individual investments within Self-Directed IRAs?
    - Who are disqualified persons and why is it prohibited to enter into a transaction with these individuals?
    - Not being able to perform any degree of sweat equity on real estate purchased through a Self-Directed IRA.
    - Purchasing property in retirement destinations (Florida, Mexico, Costa Rica), using Self-Directed IRAs.
    - The difference between a Direct Purchase and a Checkbook IRA
