One of the reasons people never pull the trigger to invest in real estate is that they believe they won’t qualify for a loan.  But what if there were a way to acquire property without ever stepping into a bank or passing a credit check?

Today’s guest bought his first 400 units using techniques that allowed him to sidestep the banks and work directly with the seller.  He now has over $100 Million in assets under management and he’s sharing his secrets with us today.

Bill Ham is the author of “Creative Cash: The Complete Guide to Master Lease Options and Seller Financing for Investing in Real Estate”.  Today, Bill is going to explain the Master Lease Option process and how he’s employed it in his investing to yield enormous profits.  Bill will share his “SPY” process, which puts the Seller first, Property second, and then takes into account how You will Profit. 

Bill also shares his outlook on the market and the looming distress he expects in certain sectors that will make Master Lease Options and Seller Financing important tools in your investor toolkit. 

If you’re looking for creative ways to get deals done and reduce the amount of capital you need to employ to acquire new assets, then you’ll definitely enjoy this episode.  You can contact Bill through his website at https://creativeapartmentdeals.com

My guest today believes that Holding Forever is the best way to become Financially Free.

Jonathan Barr grew up in a real estate family and started investing after the Great Recession.  He’s completed Higher-End Single Family Flips, Ground Up Developments, and Multi-Family Repositions with his brother through their company JB2 Investments.

Today we’re also going to talk about Fix & Flipping V.S. Multi-Family and Jonathan’s investment strategy that has generated over 22 Million in profits with an average yearly return of 38%.  We’re also going to discuss the tax ramifications of both strategies, including cost segregation reports, depreciation, and the “Real Estate Professional” status.

Jonathan will also share details on the townhome development project he initiated in Los Angeles, and how it’s taken over five years to break ground.  We’ll discuss the 1031 exchange he completed by selling a Los Angeles duplex in order to buy a 14-Unit in Kansas City, and another recent 1031 exchange where he acquired a 72-Unit during the Pandemic.

We cover a lot of ground in this episode, and I know you’re going to benefit from the experiences Jonathan has had along the way.  You can contact Jonathan on twitter: JB2Investments,

My guest today has developed a program that is designed to increase rents by 3 to 5% without costing you a huge capital investment.  He accomplishes this by optimizing your rental space.

Jim Monk is the President of CLOZZITS and believes space optimization is a game-changer for existing properties as well as new construction.  Creating more space for residents is a bigger issue that most owners think, and Jim is here to tell us why.

Today we’re going to discuss the value proposition of maximizing your closet space, what potential residents look for when assessing unit storage, the types of systems that work best, the preferred lighting for your space, and the ways our “do-it-yourself” listeners can maximize space on their own.  We’ll also discuss the costs and ROI generated by installing these systems, as well as the tax benefits and strategies to pay for them.

Talking about closet space may not seem like the sexiest topic, but I guarantee you’ll find what Jim has to say eye opening and thought provoking.  You can find out more about Jim and CLOZZITS through their website:  https://clozzits.com

What I admire about today’s guest is that she is extremely strategic in her approach to real estate investing, fearless in the type of projects she takes on, and creative in the way she structures her deals and works with her clients.

Allison Koetsier is also a Top-Selling and Award-Winning Multi-Family broker with Compass Realty Services and a previous guest on this show.  Today we discuss why it's important to have a clear investment strategy & goal, the biggest mistake she sees first-time investors make, and why you need to build a great team.  We also discuss Exit Strategy and taking a holistic view of your portfolio to position it for your heirs and Legacy Wealth.

Allison also goes into detail on a 48-unit in Southern Michigan that everyone told her not to buy, and why she did it anyway and made an Infinite Return.  We’ll discuss why she was able to make such great returns in a tertiary market by spending $10,000 a door in improvements, and the factors that convinced her this was a project worth pursuing.

We’ll also talk about the conversations Allison is having with her clients in this incredibly hot market, as well as her advice to still turn a profit when pricing is so competitive.  We’ll also talk about her Father, Tom Koetsier, who passed away recently, and the impact his advice had on her future as well as his importance to the Rental Property Owners Association.

I know you’re going to love this conversation with Allison, and there’s a lot of great advice and investing wisdom packed into this episode.  You can contact Allison through her website:  https://www.teamkoetsier.com

When you look at all of the disruption, vacancies, and permanent closures in the office, hospitality, and retail space, it’s clear that we need to start thinking differently about Adaptive Reuse of these buildings.  And since one of the greatest needs we have in this country is for middle-income housing, I believe we’re going to see a lot more conversion projects designed to expand our middle-income housing inventory.

Recently I saw an article in Costar News about a permanently closed Ramada Inn located in Sheffield, Alabama that was being converted into apartments for middle income workers.  I thought this would be a great topic to discuss on the show, so I contacted the developer, Richard Rubin with Los Angeles-based firm Repvblik (pronounced “Republic”), and he agreed to a conversation.

Originally from South Africa, Richard brings a unique and creative perspective to obsolete and vacant buildings, as well as solutions for increasing inventory of workforce housing.  Today he’s going to explain the need for workforce housing, the types of adaptive reuse projects he prefers, the economics of adaptive reuse, and how the government can help facilitate this type of project. We’ll also go into detail on the Ramada Inn conversion in Alabama.

It pays to think differently from everyone else when it comes to real estate investing and development.  I know you’re going to benefit from hearing Richard’s perspective.  You can contact Richard through email: richard@therepvblik.com or on linkedin.
