7 Ideas To Help You Fund Land Deals Like A Pro - Interview w/ Reid Kurtenbach
107: Reid Kurtenbach has been a member of the REtipster community for some time now, and he has been funding land deals across the US for land investors since 2019, using both his self-directed Roth IRA and his own personal capital.
(Show Notes: REtipster.com/107)
We thought it would be interesting to bring Reid on the show because this idea of funding land deals has grown to be pretty popular in recent years, and for good reason.
There are some land investors who get into the business, they see the opportunity, they work some deals themselves, but they realize pretty quickly that they don’t have the time or the desire to do all of this hands-on work themselves. However, they DO still believe in the business model and they have the money.
Likewise, there are some land investors who DO have the time and desire to find and work the deals, but they don't have the money to keep deals flowing through their pipeline. They need someone who understands the land business (because most conventional lenders don’t) and is willing to provide the funds they need to buy the properties.
Most land investors fall into one of these two camps… and regardless of which camp you fall into, it’s important to understand the perspective of the money partner who is willing to contribute the money and let the active investor take the lead while expecting a certain return after the deal is done.
What’s it like to work with someone like this?What are the challenges in this kind of relationship?Why should or shouldn’t someone partner with a private money partner?There are a lot of things to unpack in this kind of partnership, and Reid is going to give us his perspective on it.
This is also an interesting issue for us to explore because Jaren is coming at this from the other side, as the active investor who is using other people’s money to fund deals… so there will probably be some different options and perspectives as we talk about how things should look from both ends.

How Ryan Chaw Doubled His Rental Income Using the Rent-By-Room Model
104: In this episode, I’m talking with a guy named Ryan Chaw. Ryan is an interesting guy who has been featured on BiggerPockets and a number of other podcasts over the past year because he’s got a cool thing going.
(Show Notes: REtipster.com/104)
By most people’s standards, he’s a pretty normal guy, working a normal job and pursuing the American Dream like the rest of us. He’s got a lot in common with most of our listeners out there and over the past few years, he’s been able to build up a nice little rental property portfolio on a part-time basis that is bringing in well over $10K per month in rental income.
He did this using a rent-by-room model, which is kind of like house hacking on steroids because he's been able to earn double the amount he could normally make if he had used his properties as conventional rentals.
In this conversation, we’re going to talk about how he did this, some of the important lessons he’s learned along the way, and how you can follow a similar roadmap if you want to create something similar for yourself.

Feeling Stuck in Your Land Business? Try This Instead...
102: What exactly should someone do if they’re 6-12 months into their land investing business and things just aren't working?
(Show Notes: REtipster.com/102)
Whether you aren’t getting deals, you aren't able to get properties sold (or sold fast enough), you’re not profitable at all, or you haven’t reached the level of profitability you thought you would be at by this point… what are you supposed to do about that?
If that sounds anything like you, we’re going to give you our best advice for getting unstuck as a land investor.
Back in March of this year, a member of the REtipster Facebook community named Lisa posted this:
“I have reached a real tough spot in my business... I'm 9 to 10 months in and not profitable. I've invested a lot of time and money [over 5K in mailers] and to be honest I'm very frustrated. I've been shut down and discouraged all week and want to refocus myself. I would like to maybe hear from people who can offer insight/ guidance. I honestly am very hesitant to invest any more funds at this time until I become profitable.”
Her comments seemed to really strike a chord with a lot of people because it got over 100 comments! There was a lot of great advice shared on there, so we encourage you to check it out, but Jaren and I wanted to take some time to give our two cents on the subject, and the podcast seemed like a natural place to do that.
These guys know what they are talking about! Their advice really works and has been huge in my success in the land business. If you Subscribe to just one real estate podcast, it should be this one
