490: 7 “Ninja Tips” From One of Hawaii’s Largest Real Estate Investors
Play • 1 hr 19 min

We all know that Hawaii is expensive. With its black sand beaches, fantastic surfing waves, and delicious poke bowls, why wouldn’t you want to live and invest there? Well, even with all those positives, many investors steer clear of Hawaii due to its high prices and lack of land, but one investor, Indar Lange, has proven those critics wrong.

Indar is Hawaii’s largest flipper, running about 15 flips at any given moment, and tackling deals priced at upwards of $3,000,000! Indar is no rookie to the game, he’s been doing this for the last decade and a half, but he had humble beginnings.

Growing up poor on a farm in rural Hawaii, Indar thought that his life would be set once he got his engineering degree. After realizing that engineers topped out at about $150,000 per year, Indar had to think of something else to do. He coincidently bought a small home at the time, fixed it up, and sold it after living in it for a few years. He paid zero taxes on the gain and this became his first live in flip, which caused the real estate wheels to start turning in his head.

Now, he’s hooked up with some of the best lenders, agents, wholesalers, contractors, and investors in the Hawaii area, taking down massive deals for a big payday. You’ll hear Indar’s full story and catch his “Ninja Tips” for the aspiring real estate investor.
