Hello and welcome to episode #300!  This is a big number for us here on the Rental Property Owner and Real Estate Investor Show, and I want to thank all of you for being such an incredible and receptive audience.

To celebrate, I thought we’d invite back two early guests, so we can check in with them to see how their investing has progressed over the years, and how joining professional organizations like the RPOA have catapulted their investing strategies into new and more lucrative asset classes.

When we first talked with Jeremy and Melanie Garcia on episode #125, they were just getting started through house-hacking, flipping, and rehabbing in Muskegon, Michigan.  That was three years ago, and they now have bought and sold over 65 properties, quit their full-time jobs, and entered into the Airbnb space. 

Today we’re going to discuss the lessons they’ve learned in scaling their flipping business, why they’ve only worked with hard-money lenders, the aggressive paydown strategies they have to achieve passive cashflow, wraparound mortgages and reverse-engineering their business to achieve the lifestyle they dream of.

We’ll also discuss the multifamily property they recently acquired and the number one thing they did to boost net operating income, as well as their Airbnb strategy and how they differentiate their properties from other short-term rentals.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Jeremy and Melanie, and gain some tips on how to accelerate your investing business.  You can find out more about them through their website:  www.staymuskegon.com and find out more about the Short Term Rental Association at:  https://www.shorttermrentalassoc.com

Today we’re going to talk about one of my favorite topics – demographics.  Specifically, how Generation Z is going to amplify the trends that millennials have already established, such as delaying marriage and living with their friends into their 30’s. 

It pays to understand these trends and the disruption they create in the traditional rental housing market.  Concepts such as Shared Housing and Coliving are being monetized by savvy investors who see this as a lasting and lucrative trend.

My guest today is one of those investors.  Johnny Wolff has roots in Silicon Valley and is the CEO and Founder of HomeRoom Coliving, which is one of the fastest growing coliving companies in the United States.

Today Johnny is going to compare and contrast the Millenial and Gen Z demographics and explain the minimum and maximum technology and services they expect to encounter when renting.  Johnny will share the app he uses to create 3D tours, floor plans and dimensions of his properties, and the way he conducts his virtual tours and video interviews.

We’ll also talk about the type of property that works well for coliving, and how Johnny maximizes the space by adding bedrooms in order to increase rent income per square foot.

If you’re looking for ways to add upside value to the traditional rental housing model, then you definitely want to hear how Johnny is increasing net income by over 30%.  You can find out more about Johnny and HomeRoom Coliving through email: johnny@livehomeroom.com or website: https://livehomeroom.com

My guest today is a successful entrepreneur and real estate investor who hosts the excellent podcast called “Street Smart Success”.

Roger Becker is also a great guy and is not afraid to share the ups & downs of the deals he’s done, which include single family, commercial properties, and a rent-controlled multifamily in San Francisco.

Today Roger goes where very few investors care to travel --- he’ll be sharing some of the more painful investments he made and the lessons he learned from them.  He’ll discuss the duplex he house hacked and how he was barely able to pay the mortgage each month.  We’ll also talk about the 100% loss he experienced on a commercial office and retail property when he partnered with someone that seemed to know what they were doing but didn’t.

Roger will also go into detail on the 5-unit Rent Controlled Multifamily he acquired in San Francisco, and why he had to sell it when he realized that the tenants would never move out and allow him to increase rents to market rate.  We’ll also discuss the difficult decision he faced to condo-ize the building, and how the next investor he sold it to did just that and faced the wrath of the neighbors, city, and media.

I know you’re going to enjoy listening to Roger’s stories and learning from his sometimes painful experiences.  You can contract Roger through email: roger@streetsmartsuccess.com

And be sure to check out his excellent podcast “Street Smart Success”.

Across the United States, Security Deposits tie up over $45 Billion dollars a year in non-interest-bearing accounts, and neither the landlord or the renter benefits from these funds while they’re just sitting there.  The security deposit is meant to protect the landlord from any damages caused by the renter, but often when it comes to serious damage the landlord will have to take the tenant to court to get paid and often does not recoup the time, money and effort that this process requires.

There is an alternative to security deposits that some states are just beginning to recognize as legal.  The concept of Security Deposit Insurance has been gaining momentum over the past several years, and my guest today is going to explain how it works to the landlord and renter’s benefit.

Paraag Sarva is the co-founder of Rhino, the leading security deposit insurance provider in the U.S. and he’s spent 10 years as a landlord in the New York metro area with over 250 units.

Today we’re going to discuss the disruptive nature of Security Deposit Insurance, how it works, the costs and benefits, and whether or not you or your property manager can provide this at your properties.

You can contact Paraag and find out more about Rhino Security Deposit Insurance by going to https://www.sayrhino.com
