I’ve been looking forward to our conversation with today’s guest because he’s one of the smartest people I know in the Multifamily and Property Management space. 

JC Castillo has taken what he learned during his time in Silicon Valley and the semiconductor industry, and he’s applied that tech and data experience to his current business Multifamily Property Group which has grown to $80 Million in assets under management.  He just rolled out his new property management company called Velo Residential.  JC also hosts the excellent show called the “Operate For Profit Podcast”

Today we’re going to discuss the future of investment real estate and the emphasis property management is going to have on generating profits.   JC is going to describe how he’s using Artificial Intelligence to keep his units full, and Virtual Team Members to handle much of the back-end office work.  We’ll also dig into the importance of Key Performance Indexes and how they can show you the health of your investment or point out problems at a glance.

You’ll also learn why JC doesn’t spend money on paid advertising for any of his properties, and the key resource that helps him market his units and draw more traffic to his website than his competitors.

JC shares so much Gold in this episode.  Anyone who manages their own properties or hires 3rd-party management will want to listen to this episode to hear JC’s cutting-edge ideas.  You can find out more about JC and Velo Residential at  www.operateforprofit.com

Today we’re going to talk about the future of retirement and how real estate is an often overlooked vehicle for securing your financial future.  Increasingly, pensions are being converted to 401(k)s which is shifting the retirement risk to employees.  This has caused today’s guest to reconsider traditional beliefs about retirement savings.

Eric Martel lost a fortune during the dot-com crash of 2001 and started looking for alternative ways to earn passive income.  He started various businesses including a gourmet sauce company, but eventually came back to his first love, real estate, which led him to form Martel Turnkey.  After four years of rapid success, he was able to retire from his W2 job.  Eric is also the author of the recent book called “Stop Trading Your Time For Money”.

Today we discuss Eric’s beginnings as a real estate investor when he purchased an apartment building at the age of 18.  He quickly burned out on investing though because he was handling all of the property management and repairs.  We’re also going to discuss what it means to have financial freedom, and the goal setting and actionable steps you can take to achieve it.

Eric will also share the turn-key model he’s developed investing in secondary cities with rehabbed houses costing (roughly) $100,000 that can be purchased with 20% down and cashflow $300 a month.  We discuss the turnkey aspects of this type of investing, the power of leverage and depreciation, and the risks from tenants and property condition.

This is an important episode for anyone who’s paying attention to their potential retirement income, and will get you to start thinking about meeting your living expense by generating additional passive income.  You can find out more about Eric on Instagram at E_Martel or facebook at Eric.Martel.ca, or https://marteleric.com

Today we’re going to get hyper-local and discuss the eviction protection program here in Kent County.  No matter where you live and own rental property, there are programs like this all over the country that are helping residents who are struggling to pay their rents during the pandemic, as well as landlords who need to collect that rent in order to make sure their bills are being paid.

Gustavo Perez is the CERA Program Manager at United Way.  CERA stands for Covid Emergency Rental Assistance Program and its receiving millions from the Government that need to be deployed right away to help renters and landlords.

Gustavo is going to help us understand this program and how our residents can gain access, the criteria for receiving the money, and how many months it will cover.  We’ll also discuss some of the hesitancy that landlords have in accepting this agreement as well as the benefits from working with this program.

If you’re in Kent County, Michigan you can access this program by going to www.kentrenthelp.org

Mobile Home Park Investing has been a hot asset class over the past five years, and we’ve certainly talked about it on this show.  But what kind of opportunities are really available to investors right now, and how has the increased competition from institutional buyers and effects of the pandemic affected the opportunities in this space?

My guest today is here to give us an update on the state of Mobile Home Park Investing.  Brian Spear is a founder of Sunrise Capital Investors which specializes in acquiring deals in off-market, direct-to-owner transactions.  He’s also the co-host of the Mobile Home Park Investing podcast.

Today Brian is going to share with us the trajectory that led him to investing in real estate, and the systems and tools he’s using to not only build a world-class mobile home park portfolio, but to manage it as well.  You’ll learn the meaning of “Prep-ortunity”, and how Brian moved across the country to work with his mentor Kevin Bupp for free.  We’ll also discuss some new investments he’s making in parking lots and parking garages, and why he finds this such an exciting asset class.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Brian and benefit from the knowledge he brings today.  You can contact him through https://sunrisecapitalinvestors.com/funds/fund-iii/
