    WFN #058 – Is the ‘1% rule’ DEAD? Marco Santarelli from Norada Real Estate gives his thoughts

    WFN #058 – Is the ‘1% rule’ DEAD? Marco Santarelli from Norada Real Estate gives his thoughts

    Is the 1% rule dead?  


    Are you looking for an investment that yields 12-15%, pays monthly and you DON’T have to be accredited?  


    Finally, what if you need an option for mortgage financing outside of a traditional bank?


    Our returning guest from episode 16, Marco Santarelli joins us again to answer all three of these questions and share his thoughts on the housing market going into 2023.


    👉 Tip/Trivia – In 1983, the inflation calculation was changed from tracking mortgages and other housing costs to tracking ‘owners’ equivalent rent’ which made the measurement less volatile.

    WFN #057 – Safely earn 10-12% on your money WITHOUT stock market volatility

    WFN #057 – Safely earn 10-12% on your money WITHOUT stock market volatility

    Instead of going to the bank to get LENT money, why not BE a bank and LEND money?
    That is the topic of today’s podcast with Howard Robbins of Ignite Funding.  $1.3 billion in trust deeds have been funded since 1995 and Ignite has returned over $100 MILLION in steady, monthly interest payments to their investors. 
    You don’t have to an accredited investor.  The minimum investment amount is only $10,000.  AND your investment is SECURED by real estate.
    👉 Tip/Trivia – Certain payments, like interest payments are taxed at your HIGHEST marginal tax rate.  Invest in Trust Deeds in a tax-FREE Roth retirement account to pay ZERO in taxes!

    WFN #056 – Spartan Invest of Birmingham, AL continues to grow investors’ wealth!

    If you have followed me for any amount of time, Spartan Invest has been mentioned quite a bit.  I also have been in Birmingham, AL about a half dozen times and is a primary market I invest in and plan to continue to invest in.  I also have great respect for the team especially when Maureen called me directly to advise NOT to buy a property we were looking at.  
    Today however I brought on the CEO and co-founder of Spartan Invest Lindsay Davis where we talk about their current markets, what NEW markets they will be going in and the growth of their new construction vertical.
