When Justin Hentemann turned nine years old his father started a property management company.  Justin literally learned the business from the ground up - by cleaning hallways and landscaping, to becoming a property manager and team supervisor, to working his way up to Vice President of MTH Management Company.

Today, Justin and I have a very high-level conversation that anyone interested in Commercial Apartment Investing will want to listen to.  Justin explains why the success of a property is determined on the day you close, how to find efficiencies and lower expenses, and how to turn around a cash-flow negative property.

You're also going to learn about the different accounting methods and the difference between cash-based accounting and the accrual method.  Justin also manages Low Income Tax Credit (LITC) properties, as well as HUD, Rural Development (RD) and MSHDA housing.  We'll discuss what these terms mean, as well as what it takes to comply with these types of loans.

MTH Management is based in Lansing, Michigan and manages over 2,000 units of large apartment communities, as well as some smaller multi families throughout Michigan and parts of Ohio & Indiana.  You can contact Justin in the following ways:

A lot of listeners have asked me to share more about my investing strategies and experiences in Multifamily and Apartment Syndication.  The best way to accomplish this is to bring in my business partner, Marty Green, to discuss three of the deals we've done together.

Marty Green is the owner of Green Property Management here in the West Michigan area.  Marty & I have partnered on three separate apartment investments, and we will discuss the many aspects of those deals during our conversation today.

Both of us believe strongly in strategically partnering with the right people to get past plateaus, overcome challenges, and achieve exponential growth in real estate investing.

Marty also explains why your expenses should go up, and your income should go down when you first acquire a turnaround investment property.  We discuss what to do when you've inherited bad tenants, alternatives to capital calls, lowering expenses to increase your Net Operating Income, and the number one thing we do at all of our communities to prevent tenant problems and attract the best residents.

I also share how we syndicated these investments: the SEC rules we followed, the types of investors we worked with, the money we raised, and our communications with our current investors.

I know you'll enjoy today's show.  Please take a moment to give us a rating and review on itunes.

Listeners to this show know that I'm a big fan of house hacking as a great way to get into real estate investing.  Many of our guests have begun their investment career by purchasing a multifamily property and living in one of the units while letting the rent income from the other unit(s) pay for their mortgage and expenses.  In fact, I believe house hacking is one of the most sensible and lucrative ways to build a real estate portfolio, and have spoken with many guests who have proven this to be so.

Apparently, Financial Advice Guru Dave Ramsey does not agree.

In a recent advice column, Dave seems to advise one of his readers against purchasing a three unit and living in one side, while letting the income from the other two units pay for his mortgage and expenses.

http://www.daveramsey.com/davesays/column/column/dave_Says_2016-11-07

Dave goes on to suggest the reader would be better off purchasing a nice, single-family home instead.

Does Dave's advice really make sense?  In order to answer this question, I've invited several of my past guests into the studio to debate the pro's & con's of his answer.

Justin Workman (Episode 3) and Rob Minch (Episode 9) help me get to the bottom of Dave Ramsey's House Hacking advice, and the result is not what you would expect.
