As you build your real estate investment portfolio, it’s essential to have the right type of attorneys to keep you out of trouble and help ensure success. Today we’re going to talk with a real estate tax attorney who is also a successful real estate investor.

Brian Boyd is the author of “Replace your Income: A Lawyer’s Guide to Finding, Funding, and Managing Real Estate Investments” and today he’s going to share his best advice on getting into real estate investing and why he believes now is a great time to be building your portfolio.

Brian shares how he first invested in a laundromat and sold that after a year to acquire his first vacation rental property. Over the past few years, he’s laddered his portfolio up to a six-figure income.

You’ll also get Brian’s advice on setting up the correct entity structure and how to maintain that entity without piercing the corporate veil. You’ll also learn the top mistakes Brian sees investors making, as well as his favorite tool for handling security deposits.

Let’s say you own an apartment building and there’s a fire that destroys one of the units. Or maybe a tornado rips through your community and demolishes an entire building. What if there’s an earthquake and your entire property falls into a crevasse?

Extreme examples, I know. And isn’t insurance supposed to cover those costs anyway?

Yes, but that’s when your problems really begin. Working with an insurance company to cover the costs they’re supposed to can be a tricky business. That’s why you might consider hiring an insurance adjuster who can get you through the process smoothly.

Jack Hanks was awarded “Public Adjustor of the Year” for 2022, so he’s the perfect person to fill us in on what an adjuster is, why they’re necessary, and how you can benefit from their services.

We’re also going to discuss the mistakes Jack sees owners making when choosing their insurance, the difference between actual cash value and replacement value insurance, and why we all need to check our insurance policies now to make sure we have proper coverage.

I know you’re going to get a lot of great advice from this episode. You can contact Jack via email or his website:

Over the past two years, today’s guest has acquired 19 city blocks in Jacksonville, Florida’s urban center with the goal of creating a thriving, walkable downtown. 

Why? Because by helping make Jacksonville a place where people want to live and work, Gregg Cohen and his team at JWB Real Estate Capital hope to raise the median income city-wide. This benefits everyone who lives there, and in turn, helps his investors increase their return on investment.

Today we’re going to learn more about Gregg’s strategy of building neighborhoods, investing in the city he loves, and why he’s bucking the trend of buying across multiple markets. We’ll also discuss the dynamics that help create a successful downtown, such as the public-private partnership, tax incentives, and avoiding the NIMBY buzzsaw.

This is an excellent episode about placemaking and what it takes to create a thriving downtown community. You can find out more about Gregg through the following means:

When I started investing in multifamily it was 2008 and every property was a distressed property. The period between 2008 and 2012 was definitely a buyer’s market and sellers were desperate to unload their non-performing properties.

As the market shifts once again it seems like we’re heading into some sort of recession. So, it’s a good opportunity to discuss the outlook on distressed commercial real estate and how you might find the best opportunities currently available.

Jake Harris is our guest today, and he is the author of “Catching Knives: A Guide to Investing in Distressed Commercial Real Estate”—which makes him the perfect person to have this conversation with.

Jake is going to share stories from the past 20 years in real estate investing—how he became a millionaire by 30, but then lost it all in the Great Recession. He’ll share the systems that he’s built to identify distressed properties, examples of recent acquisitions, and his outlook on the rest of 2022 and what will happen in our economy.

Have we reached the point where it no longer makes sense to invest in older multifamily properties? 

My guest today makes the argument that there is nothing passive about investing in older properties because they constantly need repairs and updates.

Instead, you should be considering new construction multifamily, and building as much as you can as fast as you can.

Roger Luri has been a real estate investor and developer for over 30 years, and he’s the author of the recent book “Don’t Buy Multi-Family: Build It!”. Today Roger and I discuss the compelling fundamentals behind new construction investments, and he shares examples from his previous developments in Chicago.

As digital technology advances and we see more and more automation and systematizing of every aspect of the real estate transaction process, it’s not too hard to imagine the disruption blockchain technology will introduce for real estate investors.

Hello and welcome to the RPOA Alternative Strategies in Short-Term Rentals Expert Panel.

This is the panel that goes beyond your typical short-term vacation rentals and dives into alternative and lucrative strategies that you might want to consider.

And we are lucky to have an incredible panel this morning:

Robyn Thompson is nationally known as the Queen of Rehab, and is also an expert on vacation rentals. Robyn has a system that provides a premium experience in very specific locations and strategies that will help you get far ahead of your competition.

Barb Bookout has bypassed vacation rentals altogether, and has concentrated her business on 30-day or longer rentals right here in Grand Rapids.

Barb owns a commercial building in downtown Grand Rapids, and for the past seven years she’s been running it as a vacation rental. Four years ago she transitioned to 30-day or longer rentals and rents to visiting students and travelling medical professionals.

Jeremy Garcia is a Muskegon area investor with several short-term rentals. Full disclosure, Jeremy and I are partners on a commercial 8-unit boutique Airbnb hotel that we recently purchased and are building out in downtown Muskegon.

Instrumental to Jeremy’s strategy is renting to travelling nurses who often stay in his furnished units for 2 to 3 months at a time. Jeremy and his wife Melanie are expanding this model to include not just travelling medical professionals, but also corporate and executive clients.

I’m always fascinated at how technology and innovation can disrupt the traditional way of doing business—especially in the rental property and real estate investing space.

Today’s guest started a proptech company whose mission is to challenge outdated practices to improve the rental experience for tenants and small mom-and-pop landlords.

As a serial entrepreneur in the real estate space, Daniel Mishin founded June Homes to create a substantially better experience for thousands of tenants across NYC, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Boston. Daniel also secured over $50 million in funding from venture capital and angel investors.

Today Daniel delivers a very important warning about the future of traditional property management methods. Tenants are looking for flexibility in the way they rent, the duration of their lease, and the amenities that are offered. Daniel is going to tell you how to future-proof your rental business and why your website is already outdated.

Today’s episode might make you a little uneasy about the way you traditionally manage your rentals. But you’ll also gain fascinating insight into the future of renting and what you must consider to increase your chances of success. You can find out more at https://junehomes.com.

It’s been 109 episodes and 2 years of a pandemic, but we’re finally able to catch up with our friend Ramond Harris II. You may remember Ramond as the Detroit flipper, wholesaler and rehabber who shared his story in episodes #168 and #225 while we brainstormed ways for him to fix his broken business model and get rid of three trucks that were costing him over $25,000 per year in debt payments.

This episode was recorded at the RPOA’s 2022 annual conference in Grand Rapids where we were able to reunite with Justin Workman, Patrick Spitzley, and Stephen Benedict for an exciting mastermind session. We were all impressed to learn about the profitable new turn Ramond’s business has taken, and how he’s barged into a new business and found success by disrupting old models and outdated agreements.

For those of you who remember Ramond from past episodes, I know you’ll be incredibly impressed by his progress and newly acquired confidence. You can contact Ramond through email at ramond.harris@yahoo.com.

My guest today loves short-term rentals and a few years ago he set out to create a platform to bring the tools of industry giants to the normal investor.

Masrur Huq is the founder of Dynamic.RE, a prop-tech solution that leverages big data to help real estate investors increase their profitability and run their rentals and Airbnbs.

Today we’re going to discuss level one due diligence and how to determine a property's highest and best use. Masrur will show us the process he goes through to determine rental and pricing comps, while aggregating data from AirDNA and other sources to pinpoint the highest profit margins.

Being successful in real estate investing often involves finding solutions that others haven’t thought of or discovered. What I love about today’s interview is that Masrur not only came up with a solution, he’s managed to put it into a software format that anyone can use.

Even in these challenging economic times, multifamily real estate continues to perform exceptionally well. Hypergrowth in this investment market has led to intense competition for available properties.

But instead of getting caught up in the frenzy and making a reckless purchase that could sink you, it’s critical to carry out an on the ground inquiry. Take the time to find out what’s really behind the seller’s motivation to sell, use street knowledge to discover whether it’s a sound investment, and think outside of the box about where to find hidden value.

Those are the big ideas motivating my guest today. Sam Liebman is founder and CEO of WealthWay Equity Group a New York-based private equity and real estate development company. He has owned substantial interests in multifamily communities, office buildings and shopping centers, to the ground up construction of a luxury 21-story condominium development in Manhattan. His new book is Harvard Can’t Teach What You Learn from the Streets: The Street Success Guide to Building Wealth through Multi-Family Real Estate.

Sam is going to share some of the great insight you can find in his book. We’ll discuss how he deploys psychological due diligence to uncover the hidden story, why he considers himself a detective and the suspect is always the seller, how the town drunkard saved him $200,000 on a deal, and the office and retail Armageddon he believes is about to happen.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Sam. You can find his book on Amazon, and contact him through his website:  https://samliebman.com

One of the truths we rely on as residential real estate investors is that everyone needs a place to live. A similar, yet even more powerful truth can be claimed about the investing strategy that we’ll be discussing today. That truth is that everyone needs to eat. Where does the food we eat come from? Farms of course!

So what are the opportunities and strategies we should know to successfully invest in farmland?

My guest today, Brandon Silveira, is a fourth-generation farmer and CEO of FarmFundr, a crowdfunding portal giving investors access to fractional ownership in high-profit potential farmland. Brandon is going to share the compelling reasons to invest in farmland and the potential profits you can make.

According to Brandon, we’ll need to double our farming output to meet the world’s demand for food in the coming decades. There’s a reason why billionaires like Bill Gates are investing in farmland, and Brandon is going to share how you can join them.

This note buying panel discussion was recorded during RPOA's 2022 conference. We were joined by two incredible experts who helped us understand the difference between performing and non-performing notes, the challenges of investing in notes, and specific examples of wins & losses. After the discussion, we opened up the floor for Q&A from the audience.

I’d like to introduce our experts…

She’s also done every type of note deal whether it be performing, non-performing, seller-financed or anything in-between, and she will tell you that hands-down she prefers paper over property any day of the week.
