BiggerPockets Podcast 438: The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Finding GREAT Deals in ANY Market with Anson Young
Anson Young’s voice may sound familiar to you, that’s because he’s been on the podcast four times! Every time he’s back we learn something new, and today, Anson is talking about how to find and fund great deals, regardless of your schedule, or budget. You don’t need to be a full-time real estate professional to find great deals, just be sure to follow Anson’s advice. If you haven’t heard Anson’s prior episodes, here’s a recap. Anson has touched on almost every aspect of real estate investing. He flips, he wholesales, and he sells houses as an agent, meaning he has a huge amount of knowledge to share to BiggerPockets listeners. On average, Anson is doing 12-15 flips a year, 10 wholesale deals a year, and a dozen or so sales a year as an agent. Anson has some great advice on finding off-market (and on-market) deals that include driving for dollars, door knocking, and list building. He also shares how to build a profitable list, what neighborhoods to look into for deals, and how to specify what type of home you’re trying to get depending on your goals. If you’ve been trying to get your foot in the door to real estate investing, Anson shares why many people have trouble at the start. It all comes down to consistency. If you’re new, it may be fun at first to start driving for dollars, but are you doing it consistently? Do you have an accountability partner that can hold you to a high standard to get the work done? Are you systematizing your leads or trying to juggle them all in your head? We also talk about Anson’s fantastic book Finding and Funding Great Deals, where you can find everything you need to find and fund your next real estate deal. We’re also happy to announce the BiggerPockets Book Club, where you can hear from Anson live and ask him questions about his deals, his book, and his portfolio!

4 Ways Newbies Can Finance Deals with Richard Kelly
After Richard Kelly shadowed a veterinarian for the day, he realized that his passion wasn’t performing surgery on animals, it was actually money. This led him to become a banker and after he was given the book Rich Dad Poor Dad, his interest in real estate investing was sparked. After deciding he wanted to become a landlord, Richard found BiggerPockets and started listening to every episode of the podcast he could. After feeling confident enough in the real estate investing education space, he made his first jump into flipping, buying a short-sale home with some creative financing via hard money loans. After some very heavy hard money fees paired with long nights working to get his flip finished, he walked away with a solid profit, and knew that he wanted to park it in buy-and-hold investing. Currently, Richard has completed 2 flips and owns 2 rentals (a single family and a duplex), and knows exactly what (and what not) to look for when using hard money and creative financing. Now, he’s here to share the knowledge with all of us. Richard has done 4 deals, with 4 completely different ways of financing. From private money, to 401(k) loans, and using a fan favorite, the 203(k) construction loan. He also talks through how to find deals, who to partner up with, and why you need a great real estate agent especially when you’re just starting out. In This Episode We Cover: * Why short sale properties may be a great buy for new investors  * The importance of having reserves when going through hard money lending * How to get comfortable with making offers (before you see the place) * Financing through hard money, 401(k) loans, and 203(k) loans  * Finding quality partners that make deals easier * How to find off-market deals, wherever you are * Richard’s favorite tools for finding and managing properties * And SO much more!

92: The 3 Biggest Mistakes People Make During Negotiations with Kwame Christian M.A. Esquire
Negotiation is all around us, whether we see it or not. Whether it’s a business negotiation, an argument in a relationship, or convincing your child to eat their greens, you’re always negotiating. With us on today’s episode is Kwame Christian M.A. Esquire, host of the Negotiate Everything podcast and author of Finding Confidence in Conflict. Most people think you have to be a lawyer to be an expert negotiator. Kwame argues that this isn’t true. Since we are constantly negotiating every day, we have the ability to level up our skills to become experts in debating and negotiating. He stresses that winning a negotiation doesn’t mean beating your opponent so they’re embarrassed at the end. It means giving you AND the opponent the ability to walk away from the situation with a win. Kwame preaches “compassionate curiosity” as one of the best ways to research how an opponent may answer questions you present to them. Tie this with some creative problem solving, and you’ll come out of the debate a winner. As real estate investors, this is especially key to our line of business. We’re constantly debating with sellers, buyers, appraisers and more to get outcomes that benefit us. But how can we suggest an outcome that makes the negotiating partner feel good and presents us with future opportunities? You’ll have to listen to find out! In This Episode We Cover: * Why negotiating isn’t just arguing and how to find wins for both parties * Using “The Empathy Loop” as a tactic to have the other party feel heard * The 3 pillars of negotiation, and keeping them in mind when we debate * The biggest mistakes people make when negotiating * Research vs. preparation (when to use which for what) * Compassionate curiosity and seeing your opponents point of view * Maintaining your “form” throughout negotiation * And So Much More!

Pricing a Storage Unit - How to Know Exactly What to Charge to Increase Value
Welcome back everybody to the Self Storage Income Podcast! This is your host AJ Osborne. Today we have the big daddy of them all… unit pricing. If you own, operate, or are looking at investing in storage, have you every asked yourself: What should you be charging for the units at your storage facility? How do you know what the storage market can handle in your area? How much can you increase the rate of your storage units? What’s the BEST price you should charge for your storage units? If you’ve asked these questions before, you’re certainly not alone. You’d be surprised how many storage facilities we come across that are extremely under valued. They’re not charging the rates they could be. This is a great problem to have as an owner or investor, because you can immediately and simply resolve this issue. Not only that, you can increase your revenue by incredible amounts. This is what we’re going to jump into today. We’re going to cover everything unit pricing and help to answer all the questions you might have in regard to pricing units. To do this, we need to be able to accurately measure supply, demand, how to increase storage demand, value of our tenants (even over time), finding your ideal customer, and much more. One super important thing I want you to take away from this episode is to realize that each and every single one of the storage units at your facility is an individual product. I talk more on this idea on the podcast and why this frame of mind is so important. As always, thanks a ton for all your amazing support everybody. Thanks for listening! AJ Be sure to go to to get your copy of my Self Storage Playbook. This step by step playbook walks you through from start to finish - how to identify a self storage market, how to perform due diligence, how to contact a current owner, and ultimately how to land a deal and purchase a storage facility.

Go Small Or Go Home w/ Chad Carson
In this episode, Coach Chad Carson joins us again to talk about an important article he wrote for BiggerPockets on making sure your investment goals are in line with your life goals. Link to article: Link to Chad's website: --- Transcript Michael: Hey everybody. Welcome to another episode of The Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum and today I'm joined by my co host, Emil Shour. We have a very special guest with us today. Chad Carson is joining us again, and Chad's going to be talking to us today about his article that he wrote for BiggerPockets. Why the Massive Real Estate Empire you think you want won't give you the life you imagine? So let's get into it. Chad Carson, thanks so much for coming back on the podcast, man, we so appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to hang out with this. Chad: Happy to do it. Thanks for asking me back. Michael: No, of course, of course. So you wrote an article that got published on BiggerPockets. And we're gonna link to that in the show notes. But the article is called why the massive real estate Empire you think you want won't give you the life you imagine? So we're gonna have you read an excerpt from this article. But I would love to know to kick things off. What made you write this article was kind of your inspiration. Chad: Yeah, I wrote a lot on bigger pockets I haven't written as much lately, but also wrote a book for bigger pockets. And so I just I love the ecosystem of BiggerPockets. I love the team behind the scenes. It's just a great service to real estate investors and was immersed in a lot of that, though, I think I heard a common refrain. And it's not necessarily a bad thing. But a lot of the podcasts, a lot of the articles you read the ones that really stood out, were the ones talking about get as big as you can, you need to syndicate, you need to get it 1000s of units. And that was exciting. I guess it makes you know, my podcast hosts your podcast, it makes exciting, you know, headlines when you have this person who bought 50 properties in one year. And that's amazing. But as I thought about it, like the people I knew, both in like the non famous people, nobody even knows who they are, but they have tons of lifestyle, and they have flexibility. And they do what matters to them. A lot of these people had like five properties or three properties, and they had paid them off. And they were really simple. And it was nothing to write home about supposedly. But if you measure things a little bit differently, it actually was pretty incredible. And so I wrote the article to try to tell that story and to explain kind of my point of view on that. And the headline was, you know, go small or go home, because the Grant Cardones of the world are saying you need to 10x otherwise you're no good, you know. He in particular, you know, maybe I get Grant Cardone on my show one day and have a discussion. Michael: Have a chat with him. Chad: Yeah. But I wanted to be kind of the the foil to that not because that's wrong, not because people shouldn't get big and go big. Like, I'm not saying that. What I'm saying is all of us who think keeping things simple, and going small, is just perfectly fine and actually preferred. I wanted to give a voice to that for those people and make an argument, why that's actually a better thing, in many ways. Michael: Michael: Awesome. Love it. Emil: I love that I stumbled on this and like the perfect time because I was starting to have that internal conflict where I'm like, man, am I just not thinking big enough? Like, I think this is what I want. But you see it everywhere, like you mentioned, like everyone's saying, Oh, I just took down 100 units here. And he starts to be like, is that what I need to do to be successful? And I love that this reframes that. So yeah. Chad: Yeah. Michael: All right. So let's jump into a chat if you want to kick us off here and tell us this a story of three real estate investors. Chad: All right, great. Yeah, I'm gonna get my place here. So a story of three real estate investors. And I got to give a little background to this before I start reading it, because I actually got this story from other people, as many stories come from actually a real estate investor named Jack Miller, who was a teacher for many years, he's now passed away, but he was a really good teacher. And I used to go to seminars with him early on in my career, and pretty sure I got the story from him. He probably got it from somebody else as well, but I adapted it for my own purposes. The story goes that there were one summer there were three real estate investors, and they were their couples. And they traveled together to Europe and these investors that originally met each other as beginner investors in the BiggerPockets forum, and they liked each other a lot. And they helped each other kind of grow along the way. And so they became friends. And then about 15 years later, they each had experience some success with the real estate business, and they wanted to kind of go and enjoy the fruits of all of their efforts, because why not? Right, so they decided to go spend 14 days together visiting the Mediterranean coast. First they were going to go explore some ancient cities in Italy, like enjoying some amazing foods and good wine perhaps. And then they were going to continue with a high quality kind of a Mediterranean cruise that would stop at Croatia and Greece. And they even go to one of my friends. Another bigger pockets author, his home country Arian Shehi lives in. It was from Albania has family still in Albania. He's from there originally. So another cool place. So could these investors afford a nice trip like this? So you can imagine going to Italy and go on the Mediterranean coast? Well, let's take a look at the financial scoreboard to see how they could afford it using their real estate. So couple number one was Liz and Tom and they are in their 50s and they live invest in self manage their properties in Missouri in the state of Missouri, and over the last 15 years they've bought 10 single family houses one by one and good neighborhoods. Liz and Tom search hard to buy these houses as fixer uppers. So they needed some work, they were able to buy them below value because of that. And they use the BRRRR strategy to recoup most of their cash on each deal. So they would kind of recycle their cash, buy another deal, fix it up, get it rented, do another deal. And then they would use what's called the Debt Snowball technique to pay off their mortgages early. That's something I talk a lot about as well. So they started with a BRRRR, they got loans, they paid off their debt. And so now their houses produce $7,000 per month, or $84,000 per year in positive cash flow. So that's number one. Number two, Tiffany and Darius are in their early 40s. They live in New York, and they invest in North Carolina using a property manager. And 15 years after they started, they now own 150 unit apartment building, Tiffany and Darius began with smaller properties. And then they used a 1031 exchange. So a tax free exchange to kind of trade up from the smaller properties into these bigger properties until they had enough equity for a down payment on that the big 50 unit building. So they have 50 unit building has a solid fixed interest, 25 year mortgage. And the property itself after paying all their expenses produces $10,000 per month or $120,000 per year in positive cash flow. So that's couple number two. Couple number three is Mike and Martin. And they're in their late 40s. They live in Nevada, and they own properties all over the country. 15 years after they started, they now have 500 units, Mike and Lauren began with their their rentals, but they because of their ability to put together great deals. They also began syndicating deals by pooling money from other people. S…

How to Get Listings In TOUGH Sellers Markets w/ Zeus Kang
Pretty much every market in the country is feeling the inventory crunch; not nearly enough homes available to meet the overwhelming demand for homes.

What the hell are they doing to get listings in these extremely tough sellers markets? This week we talk to Zeus Kang from Honolulu, HI who is still getting a ton of listings, even when there are so few to go around. Zeus opens his playbook in a VERY detailed way and explains how he and his #1 ranked team market for listings, how they do their listing presentations, how they use open houses as "auditions" for future listings, and more.
