Passive income is the key to your financial freedom. And passive income in real estate is achieved by owning income-producing properties. Today, we are going to get you one.

You hear me say it all the time. We don’t encourage everyone to drop what you are doing and start flipping houses like you see on TV. We DO encourage everyone to consider including real estate in a well-balanced investment portfolio. To that end, this show exists to bring you news and information, strategies and techniques, inspirational people and stories, technology, demographics, statistics, and anything else we can find to help you make the best decisions possible about your relationship with real estate. 

Contrary to what HGTV might have you believing, most people begin their investing career by owning rentals. I’m called the Flipping America guy, but I didn’t start out flipping. I started out with rentals like most of you. Today’s market is hard for buyers - especially for buyers looking for deals that make sense as income producers.

MIndset Moment:

I have a new course out called REI by the Numbers. In this course I cover among other things the numbers involved in buying rental properties. I provide some general buying rules, but also explain in detail my unique “Maximum Payment Offer” or MPO for rentals. Do you want to know how equity builds and wealth grows in rentals? I have a chart for that. I explain things like loan constant, debt service coverage ratio, yield spread, and much more. The course covers the numbers used in flips as well. It includes several formulas I invented for analysis and management of my own investing business, now with more than 2000 properties moved through our systems. Go to today.
