0 to 7 Deals in a Year Using Other People's Money with Andres Bernal
Andres Bernal came to America to play tennis with only $500 in his pocket. He thought that professional tennis is what his life would end up revolving around. After playing for 2 years and being burnt out from work, Andres decided to take some advice from his family members: start buying real estate. After buying his primary residence, he started looking into multi-family homes that could make him some cash flow each month. He later put down 3.5% with an FHA loan to purchase a triplex, and rented out the bottom 2 units while he lived in the upper 3rd unit. He sold his condo, had some cash, and was ready to start investing more. Andres had some pretty creative ways of getting funding for his real estate deals. He started calling every contact in his phone, asking if they were interested in real estate, and if they were, he packaged up a deal for them. The trade? He does the work and the analysis, they do the financing. These types of partnerships have worked well for Andres and they can work for other rookies as well. His advice is to test the partnership, build the trust, and use the BiggerPockets Rental Property Calculator! The rest will fall into place. In This Episode We Cover: * Why FHA loans are a great first financing tool for rookie investors * Calculating out your “worst case scenarios” on houses * How to treat tenants so they want to stay (and will respect your home) * Why investors need to solve a problem for tenants (especially those that cause you the most trouble) * Finding local investors and investors within your existing circles * The profitability of student housing as an investment * Using social media to grow your existing network * How to set expectations for contractors * And SO much more!

Not Ready to Buy a Property Yet? Here’s What You Should Do In The Meantime
Not in a buy cycle? In this episode, we talk about what investors can do in the meantime to prepare for when they are ready to invest. --- Transcript Tom: Greetings, and welcome to The Remote Real Estate Investor. On this weekend wisdom, we got a fun topic, it's what you can do as remote real estate investor, if you're not ready to buy, or not in an acquisition cycle, or just getting ready, all the different activities you can do to build the muscles to execute well, when it's time to buy. Alright, let's do it. All right, so this weekend wisdom is made for people who want to be remote real estate investor, or perhaps they are in remote real estate investor, and they are looking for things to do to help level up when they are just not ready to buy. Or perhaps they don't have the funds to buy something along those lines. So I've got a couple of ideas. But I think I'm going to make it more fun by just putting Emil on the spot. It looks like he's not necessarily listening. Alright Emil, what are some things that people who want to invest but perhaps are not ready to grab funds or whatever reason? How can they build muscles to be a good remote real estate investor without actually buying a property? Emil: I would say so I'm kind of going through this myself on a little temporary pause. I am trying to just network with other people who invest where I invest, either through Facebook groups, BiggerPockets, forums, Roofstock Academy, wherever it is just meeting other people who invest where I invest early in my investing career, I had this very scarcity mindset about real estate investing, like why would anyone want to share information with other investors, like we're all competing against one another. But really, so many investors are so giving and willing to like, talk with other investors, because there's not many of us out there. So when you find another investor, especially if you're a remote investor, it's like, you know, that's your community, that's a tribe people love sharing information and just like talking to each other and getting best practices and stuff. So like, for me, I've been trying to meet people who are local in St. Louis, talking to different property managers, different agents, just people who are local there who can help me, I don't know, get a better label and learn the market, find deals when I'm ready to find deals. So at this point, that's what I'm kind of focusing on. Tom: Love it. It's such a good one. And I think the logical fallacy that there's only you know, so many properties out there, and I need a box, everybody out is just such a logical fallacy. Like there's, there's literally millions of houses out there. And it's a great reason to connect and share. And I mean, I guess there could be situations, right, where you're making the property, you're making an offer on it, and somebody you know, is actively buying in that same area, like then it's reasonable to use a little bit of caution on very specific deals. But generally speaking, that's that's a fallacy. I think that I had as well getting into it thinking that, you know, it's a zero sum game. Michael: It could truly be a win win. I think, if you're thinking about that, and not willing to share information at a high level, like Tom you said, there are some things that of course, you want to keep your cards close to your vest, but at a high level, like if that's what you're thinking, then you're probably doing it wrong. Tom: All right, Michael, things you can do. As an investor, perhaps you're not ready to buy right now, or you're not in the buying cycle. Michael: Yeah, so similar to Emil. I'm kind of a great case study, because I'm not in a buy cycle. Right now. I am gearing up to be in a buy cycle. So right now, my wife and I sat down two weeks ago and are really honing in our finances and our spending and our savings rate, making sure that we are just storing up a bunch of dry powder. I'm also going through several refinances right now getting some equity out in the form of cash and just looking to hold on to that for a little bit. One so I can wrap up this project I've got working on and to just so I can have some more dry powder in the keg to deploy when I am ultimately ready to jump back into that buy cycle. So getting lean and mean and getting things in reserve. Emil: You hold dry powder in a keg? That's a dangerous man. Michael: That's not where you're supposed to hold right? Where do you hold your dry powder? Emil: On the floor? I don't know. Michael: But then there there's powder everywhere. Emil: In a savings account? Tom: On the shelf. Yes. Michael: I'm talking about dry powder in a pirate sense of the word. By the way, you know what the pirates favorite letter is? Emil: ARRR! Michael: No, that'd be the sea! Tom: Oh, Have you guys heard the Wellerman song remake? Ah, the Wellerman is just stuck in my head. It's like a pirate song and it was like a tick tock thing. Okay, here's your fun fact for the weekend wisdom. The wellerman is the person the ship that would deliver pirates their like goods. So like their tea and rum and stuff. And then the Tucker is the person from the whaling ship that had to clean the tongue anyways, sorry, that was it. So the Wellerman Search it up on YouTube while or when you guys will get it stuck in your head, catchy pirate song that was important. Michael: I added that I just love just continuing down this rabbit hole, how you're like, oh, delivering their goods like T and ROM as if that's the only thing that pirates consume. Like, no, they don't eat bread or cheese or meat just exclusively tea and rum, Tom: Listen to the Wellman song and you'll get it. Okay. Michael: Okay. I definitely will. So yeah, that has been my my wife's focus for the last several months here getting this probably over the finish line and getting lean and mean to be able to move forward easily. Some other things just that I think folks can do above and beyond, those two things are just starting to really learn their market and hone in what their buybox criteria look like. So if you are just starting to invest and not feeling like you're ready, yet, there's a number of things you can do. But first and foremost, go get educated, whatever that looks like. So whether that's joining the Roofstock Academy, or having someone hold your hand along the way, who has invested before getting very specific on your criteria, what you're expecting of your investments, and then learning about the different areas, different markets throughout the country, or the world, potentially, that will be able to give you those type of returns or meet those criteria, is what you should be spending the most of your time doing, because that's time very well spent. Tom: Awesome. I'll close this out here. So a couple of points that I was going to add on some of the existing stuff on learning the market super great. So pick a couple of markets that you think are you're interested in, I wouldn't have too many, just because what I'm gonna suggest you do is subscribe on there's a lot of online applications that you can get track, like sales as they're coming across like set boundaries in like similar to your buy box. So like set like the price range. And so you can just see every sold home and every new listing that comes up in that market. That's what we mean by knowing your market is like having a real pulse on what the transactions going on going in and going out are. So a lot of places where you can track that Roofstock is one of them, where you can follow properties on the education stuff. Roofstock is a great spot. There's a lot of good online education Roofstock Academy is great, it's risk free, it's a paid program, but it's full money back if you're not happy or satisfied, whatever. So that'll be my one quick plug for Roofstock Academy, coaching and 50 hours of online yada yada all that good stuff on the education side is to get nerdy with…

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!

BiggerPockets Podcast 436: Going into Multifamily When You’re Fairly New to Real Estate with Jamie Gruber
There’s a limiting belief that many people have: “I can’t do this thing because I have no experience”. Jamie Gruber disagreed with this line of thinking. Even with no multifamily experience, Jamie decided he wanted to be a multifamily investor. So what did he do? He started the Multifamily and More meetup to network with existing multifamily investors. This didn’t mean that Jamie had no experience in real estate, he had a small portfolio of single family homes that he started to landlord by accident. Even with no experience in the multifamily space he was interested in, he was able to secure a deal with a member of his network. Now with 21 chapters and 10,000+ members, Multifamily and More has become a big part of the multifamily investing community. It grew because, as Jamie describes, he added value, stayed consistent with meetings and postings, and built an online community that could network and interact (even during COVID). Jamie gives his tips on starting a lasting community, how to navigate meetups during COVID lockdowns, finding the best partners for multifamily deals, and the importance of cash reserves when buying a property. Many single family investors want to transition to multifamily, if you’re part of that demographic, join Multifamily and More!

164: Attacking Your Fixed Expenses & What You Can Do to Boost Cashflow: Finance Friday with Kyle and Sarah
Kyle and Sarah are in a great position. Kyle owns a mechanic and repair shop while Sarah works a regular 9-5. Combined, they’re both bringing in a solid amount of cash flow each month, but it may be getting offset by their expenses. With monthly expenses going into the 5-figures, it’s been hard for Kyle and Sarah to get the cashflow to start their real estate investing. A few months back Kyle and Sarah began tracking their expenses, and like many people, they were shocked at what they found. Some takeout food here, some shopping there, and other random expenses were really adding up, so they started to reduce their costs. Kyle and Sarah both have made significant contributions in their retirement and investing accounts, but they could be investing a lot more and getting a lot of write offs! Scott and Mindy walk through the main expense categories that Kyle and Sarah have, breaking down what can be improved, reduced, and left alone. Like many people, Kyle and Sarah have found that with some fine-tuning to their budget, they'll be able to increase their investments, by a lot! In This Episode We Cover * Why everyone needs to track their expenses and start to budget * How to start tracking without shame * Why you should get quoted for insurance bundling every few years * The importance of contributing to your HSA (health savings account) * Why employers may want to start 401(k) programs for their employees * Whether or not a life insurance policy may be worth the money * What should and shouldn’t be a variable cost in your budget * And So Much More!
