49 min

What do you get when you combine Dave Ramsey-style frugality with aggressive deal-finding tactics? You get teacher Amy Barber and her fiancé, Jay – and their $6,000 monthly cashflow in rural Iowa.

In this episode, Amy shares her strategies for buying foreclosed ranch houses in cash, cleaning them up, then refinancing so she can repeat the process again and again.

Think no one's doing deals during the pandemic? Well, she's bought 4 houses in the past 4 months, and plans to keep going until she's making enough to comfortably leave her W-2 job.

If you're looking for guidance on how to build the financial foundation so you can invest in real estate from a position of strength, Amy's story will fire you up and get you ready to take that most important next step toward "getting rich slowly" just like her.

The Accumulation Model vs. The Cash Flow Model with Randy Lawrence
#165: If you’ve been working for 40 years and have put money towards your retirement, are you sure it will last? While spending your money over the remaining years of your life, you wonder: Is this all there is to it?  The accumulation method is a villain. It taught you to scrimp and save until you have a mountain of money, yet in the end, you still worry that it’s going to run out, creating a scarcity mindset. Is there a better way? Let’s hear from a former stockbroker - https://therealestatepreacher.com/podcast/ (The Real Estate Preacher), Randy Lawrence. Today, he teaches us how to transition from accumulating wealth to getting more returns on real estate, finding a way to earn every month while growing your asset, and establishing a cash flow model. Learn the impact of having the financial disciplines like operating within a budget and starting a systematic approach to transforming your current economic model.  “Discipline is what provides freedom.” ~ Randy Lawrence Top 3 Things You'll Learn: How to be reasonably responsible with your income and expenses Understanding what’s the right asset class for you Beginning a systematic approach to transition at a time table that you’re comfortable with   About Randy: Randy Lawrence is a veteran real estate investor having decades of experience with single and multi-family properties and a transformational community leader and church founder. Having started his career as a traditional wealth manager, Randy understands finance and investing strategies in the broadest sense. Ultimately Randy determined that real estate was the ideal investment vehicle for his portfolio. Over sixteen years ago, he began partnering with other investors, to their mutual benefit. Today, Randy oversees a real estate portfolio of close to $105M in multi-family assets and is on track to double these holdings in the next three years.   Resources: - Prosperity Capital Partners: https://pcpre.net/ (https://pcpre.net/) - The Real Estate Preacher Podcast: https://therealestatepreacher.com/podcast/ (https://therealestatepreacher.com/podcast/)   Connect with Randy: - Facebook: https://web.facebook.com/TheRealEstatePreacher/ (https://web.facebook.com/TheRealEstatePreacher/) - Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/randylawrence1/ (https://www.linkedin.com/in/randylawrence1/)

153: Bill Bengen (The Inventor of the 4% Rule) Talks Retirement, Past Crashes, and How You Can Withdraw Even More!
He really is the man who needs no introduction (but here’s one anyways). Bill Bengen, the inventor of the 4% rule (and personal finance hero of Mindy & Scott) stops by the Money Podcast to talk about how he calculated his famed 4%, how he managed his client’s portfolios, and how the 4% has aged throughout the past three decades. In his Original Article from the Journal Of Financial Planning, October 1994, Bengen outlined a groundbreaking calculation: a 4% withdrawal rate from your retirement accounts is all you need to comfortably retire (if enough is saved up). Bengen was hit with praise and criticism, but is still applauded to this day for having such a simple yet crucial metric for knowing how & when you can retire. Using over 200+ retirement account portfolios spanning decades of time as research, Bengen still says with confidence, the 4% rule is a winner! He has the proof and we couldn’t agree more. Whether you’re a few years or a few decades away from retirement, this episode features life-changing advice from one of the leaders in financial research. This is an episode you won’t want to miss! In This Episode We Cover * What the 4% rule is * How Bengen came up with the 4% rule and why it stands the test of time * How inflation becomes the “thief in the night” for many investors * The best (and worst) times to invest * How to stay the course during financial downturn * Which asset classes boost great returns and withdrawal rates * Steering clear of “1 more year syndrome” * The importance of rebalancing your portfolio * How to not accumulate too much wealth for retirement * Why everyone needs to learn how to be a saver, so they can enjoy life! * And So Much More!

321: Booming Home Price Appreciation and Record Prices
A crystal ball prediction for the housing market does not exist. The best measure may be the forward-looking Homebuilder Confidence Index. It just hit an all-time high for optimism. Interest rate direction has little to do with housing prices. But it helps. Real estate is not an asset. Real estate derivatives are assets, whether it be a mortgage or a lease. Gregg Cohen of JWB Real Estate Capital joins us. He’s a longtime provider of new construction turnkey rental property in Jacksonville, FL. See their properties at: CashFlowAndGrowth.com We discuss how appreciation makes long-term real estate investors more money than cash flow, amortization, tax benefits or inflation-profiting.
