Spend the Night with me in a Haunted House!

Welcome to Part 2 of our Halloween Series on Haunted Houses, Apparitions, Paranormal Experiences, and the Roommates who don’t pay rent & can’t be evicted.

In part one (episode #251) you were introduced to a retired reverend who has been experiencing paranormal activity and communicating with the dead since his near-death experience at the age of 5. You also met several of his paranormal research assistants and heard their stories as well.

Today, we’re going to take you on a ghost hunting adventure to a haunted house in the historic district of Bay City Michigan.  You'll find out the strange reasons we were brought there in the first place, how the homeowner was almost pushed off a ladder by a ghost, and what happened that night after 2 A.M. that is so strange, and so hard to explain, that I can't wait to share it with you.

If you're experiencing paranormal activity in your home, rental property, or place of business, you can contact Reverend Hunter through his publisher at https://thunderbaypressmichigan.com

Today’s episode is brought to you by Green Property Management, managing everything from single family homes to apartment complexes in the West Michigan area.

Welcome to our Special Halloween Edition with hair-raising stories about Haunted Houses, Apparitions, Paranormal Experiences, and the Roommates Who Don't Pay Rent, and Can't Be Evicted. We did something similar 3 years ago on EP#94 and it was one of my favorite all-time episodes.  Today we go even deeper into paranormal phenomenon and I know you're going to love this incredibly thrilling episode!

I recorded so many great stories that I had to break them up into two episodes:  In Part One you'll meet a group of Paranormal Researchers and the Retired Reverend who has brought them together.  In Part 2 you'll get to accompany me to a Real-Life Haunted House in Bay City Michigan.

I want to warn you that some of these stories will frighten you, and some may even terrify you.  If you're easily scared or prone to nightmares, then this is not the episode for you.  Aside from the sound effects I've added in, everything you're about to hear is the actual professed experiences of the people involved.  These are real people, with real stories of paranormal events that can't be explained, and are even harder to understand.

If you own a home, rental property, or business that is haunted or experiencing paranormal activity, then Reverend Hunter would like to hear from you.  You can contact him through his publisher at Thunder Bay Press:

My guest today is passionate about helping families build wealth and passive income streams through real estate investing and living a life by design.

Jennifer Beadles is an investor and investment-focused real estate broker specializing in value-add properties. She owns just under 250 units across five different states. With 14 years of experience in the real estate industry, Jennifer has many investing strategies, including the BRRR method, value-add multifamily, build-to-rent, supported living, private lending, and investing out-of-state

Today Jennifer goes into detail on two of those strategies and shares how they’ve allowed her and her husband to travel several months a year while maintaining passive cash flow.  First, we discuss Supported Living and why it can be more lucrative than market rate housing, while actually reducing the amount of management and expenses you’d typically find in traditional rental properties.

We’ll also discuss Jennifer’s “Build-to-Rent” strategy of building 3 to 4 bedroom duplexes that cashflow and are worth more than the acquisition and construction costs.  There are several exit strategies with this method, including cash-out refinance, holding as a rental, or condo-ing and selling off at a profit.

Jennifer shares many incredible tips that could help you see your investment strategy in a completely new way.  You can find out more about Jennifer and her coaching services through her website: https://addictedtoroi.com

Today we’re going to take a look at the Affordable Housing Crisis in the U.S. and how this will become increasingly important to renters and rental property owners in the coming years.  Construction and labor costs have risen to a point where current prices and rents may not justify the expense of building new supply, yet the demand for housing is growing and creating a lack of affordable housing for many people.

My guests today have positioned themselves to be part of the solution.  Nick Earls and Eric DiNicola are full-time real estate investors, developers, and founders of Winterspring Capital, a private equity firm based out of Boston, MA. 

Nick and Eric have over $100 Million in past and current assets under their belts and focus on several types of multifamily investment and development strategies.  Currently they have both an affordable housing development in progress, as well as a $25 Million market-rate 32-unit luxury condo development in Boston.

We’ll also discuss the importance of having a High-Net Worth Investor or group to partner with in order to acquire the best financing from lending institutions.  Nick and Eric also discuss the political and public process they go through in the pre-development phase and share tips on how to react when dealing with aggressive input and feedback from the NIMBY crowd.

Nick and Eric have a lot of incredible development wisdom to share in this episode.  You can find out more about them through their website: https://winterspringcapital.com

We’re going to talk about some fun alternative asset classes today that will expand your thinking about what really constitutes rental property.

My guest today started his career in sports medicine and spent four summers with the Buffalo Bills as an athletic trainer.  It didn’t take him long to realize that he loved business and wanted to become an entrepreneur.

Jeff Gebhart started flipping single family rentals and then pivoted to buying commercial properties in West Michigan.  His company FNG Properties currently owns roughly $3 Million in Michigan real estate and is a limited partner in over $25 Million in multifamily nationally.

And here’s the fun part… Jeff is also an executive for Silver Lake Management Company, which operates four Craig’s Cruisers, Silver Lake Chicken Shack, Jellystone Campground, Dunes Express Hotel, and the new Billy Bones Best Ever Wings in Grandville, Michigan.  Jeff is also a partner in Locked 460 Escape Rooms and the bass player for the locally famous Rocket Fuel Haulers, the unofficial #2 best cover band in Michigan.

Jeff is going to discuss each business model and how it relates to real estate investing, along with the ethos of fun, due diligence and customer service he brings to each endeavor.  You’ll also learn how Jeff and his team realized they were in the restaurant business, even though they considered themselves to be in the ‘fun’ business.  We’ll also talk about choosing your customer, maximizing your efficiency, and why multifamily real estate and passive investing outperform most other assets.

This is a super fun conversation that I know you’re going to enjoy.  You can contact Jeff through email at jeff@craigscruisers.com
