Today we’re going to discuss affordable housing and how to create more of it.

Over 10% of the U.S. population lives in poverty and struggles to afford necessities such as housing. Over the past decade our nation has not made any real progress in reducing the number of Americans at risk of homelessness. This has led to a dire need for solutions that increase availability of affordable housing options.

There is an opportunity for small business real estate investors, rehabbers, and wholesalers to use small-scale development to increase affordable housing while increasing their profits and helping their community.

My guest today is Michele Williams who advocates for small-scale development and is on a mission to impact all 3,100 counties in the U.S. through legislation and policies to increase our affordable housing stock by 2031.

Today Michele is going to share the solutions that she sees working all across the country. They include accessory dwelling units (ADUs), small houses, shipping containers and co-housing.  Michele also discusses public policy and her method for changing the zoning laws and addressing the NIMBYism that often stands in the way.

My guest today has a prestigious Ivy League education and high net worth asset management background with Bridgewater Advisors. But in 2015 he left all that behind to launch his own real estate development company in his hometown of Philadelphia. Since then, he’s renovated over 300 rental properties across the country using the BRRRR strategy.

Brian Grimes is also the founder of 24/7 Cash Flow University where he teaches students to full-gut renovate, acquire, and stabilize cash flowing rental property portfolios while revitalizing class C neighborhoods. 

He’s also come up with a strategy that has 3X’d his cashflow and he’s going to share it with us today. It involves co-living, and Brian is going to get specific about what he does to his properties to make this a successful strategy.

If you’ve been paying attention to the news and the economy, then you know that one of the causes of our high inflation rate has to do with supply chain and global logistic challenges.

But what does the supply chain have to do with real estate investing, and should investors be more cautious?

Today Jeff is going to share his bold predictions on when material and construction costs will come back down to Earth, whether we’ll ever see pre-Covid prices, and whether interest rates really make a difference in real estate investing.

My guests today are a husband and wife team who started investing in 2018 and have found financial freedom through buy-and-hold rental properties.

Now, Tiffany and Eric Vogel have released their first book called “The Pathfinder’s Journey: The Key to Your Dream Life Through Real Estate Investing” to encourage new investors to begin their own real estate journey to their dream life.

Tiffany and Eric will walk us through their process from the beginning… How they spent thousands of hours listening to podcasts, training, and going to seminars, how they found their first BRRRR project and the private money to acquire it, how they levelled up to a 3-unit, and how they eventually achieved financial freedom and were able to leave their W-2 jobs.

We’ll also discuss the different talents each of them brings to the table—Eric with his ability to take action and do a lot of the manual work, and Tiffany with her project management skills and emphasis on Gantt charts. You’ll also learn the meaning of GETMO (good enough to move on) and how Eric and Tiffany rely on that mindset to get past their perfectionist tendencies.

Let’s say you own an apartment building and there’s a fire that destroys one of the units. Or maybe a tornado rips through your community and demolishes an entire building. What if there’s an earthquake and your entire property falls into a crevasse?

Extreme examples, I know. And isn’t insurance supposed to cover those costs anyway?

Yes, but that’s when your problems really begin. Working with an insurance company to cover the costs they’re supposed to can be a tricky business. That’s why you might consider hiring an insurance adjuster who can get you through the process smoothly.

Jack Hanks was awarded “Public Adjustor of the Year” for 2022, so he’s the perfect person to fill us in on what an adjuster is, why they’re necessary, and how you can benefit from their services.

We’re also going to discuss the mistakes Jack sees owners making when choosing their insurance, the difference between actual cash value and replacement value insurance, and why we all need to check our insurance policies now to make sure we have proper coverage.

I know you’re going to get a lot of great advice from this episode. You can contact Jack via email or his website:

When I started investing in multifamily it was 2008 and every property was a distressed property. The period between 2008 and 2012 was definitely a buyer’s market and sellers were desperate to unload their non-performing properties.

As the market shifts once again it seems like we’re heading into some sort of recession. So, it’s a good opportunity to discuss the outlook on distressed commercial real estate and how you might find the best opportunities currently available.

Jake Harris is our guest today, and he is the author of “Catching Knives: A Guide to Investing in Distressed Commercial Real Estate”—which makes him the perfect person to have this conversation with.

Jake is going to share stories from the past 20 years in real estate investing—how he became a millionaire by 30, but then lost it all in the Great Recession. He’ll share the systems that he’s built to identify distressed properties, examples of recent acquisitions, and his outlook on the rest of 2022 and what will happen in our economy.

Have we reached the point where it no longer makes sense to invest in older multifamily properties? 

My guest today makes the argument that there is nothing passive about investing in older properties because they constantly need repairs and updates.

Instead, you should be considering new construction multifamily, and building as much as you can as fast as you can.

Roger Luri has been a real estate investor and developer for over 30 years, and he’s the author of the recent book “Don’t Buy Multi-Family: Build It!”. Today Roger and I discuss the compelling fundamentals behind new construction investments, and he shares examples from his previous developments in Chicago.

The way we build homes hasn’t changed in over a century. And with an unprecedented demand for new housing across the country, we can’t build fast enough.

My guest today has built a business that leverages technology to reverse the dire housing crisis by building custom homes in less than five days.

Garrett Moore is the Founder of Agorus—America’s first scalable offsite customized construction solution. As an ex-Navy SEAL, Garrett has taken the lessons learned in active duty to build a great company and revolutionize the way America is being built.

Today Garrett explains the dire lack of construction workers and why technology is the only solution to providing more housing. We’ll discuss and compare construction methods between a traditional stick-built home, and one built in a controlled factory. We’ll also talk about the quality of these homes, and the ancillary benefits of the Agorus method.

If you love learning how technology is revolutionizing the traditional ways of business, you’ll love this conversation about the future of construction and home building. You can contact Garrett through LinkedIn, or his website: https://agorus.com

Hello and welcome to the RPOA Alternative Strategies in Short-Term Rentals Expert Panel.

This is the panel that goes beyond your typical short-term vacation rentals and dives into alternative and lucrative strategies that you might want to consider.

And we are lucky to have an incredible panel this morning:

Robyn Thompson is nationally known as the Queen of Rehab, and is also an expert on vacation rentals. Robyn has a system that provides a premium experience in very specific locations and strategies that will help you get far ahead of your competition.

Barb Bookout has bypassed vacation rentals altogether, and has concentrated her business on 30-day or longer rentals right here in Grand Rapids.

Barb owns a commercial building in downtown Grand Rapids, and for the past seven years she’s been running it as a vacation rental. Four years ago she transitioned to 30-day or longer rentals and rents to visiting students and travelling medical professionals.

Jeremy Garcia is a Muskegon area investor with several short-term rentals. Full disclosure, Jeremy and I are partners on a commercial 8-unit boutique Airbnb hotel that we recently purchased and are building out in downtown Muskegon.

Instrumental to Jeremy’s strategy is renting to travelling nurses who often stay in his furnished units for 2 to 3 months at a time. Jeremy and his wife Melanie are expanding this model to include not just travelling medical professionals, but also corporate and executive clients.

My guest today is a local real estate investor and entrepreneur. Jon Frantz is not only an expert in business finance and development, capital raising, property management and operations, he’s also transforming the Alger Heights neighborhood with several businesses, including Top to Bottom Cleaning Group, Urban Jonny’s Salon, and the new and exciting SIP Coffee & Cocktails.

Jon shares his early sales experience with Cutco Knives and the importance of that training. He also talks about his first house-hacked 3-unit, and how he had to sell his car in order to buy it.

We also dig into the differences between investing in real estate and starting a business, the importance of partnership, and the biggest mistakes he sees new entrepreneurs make.

I know you’re going to enjoy this conversation with Jon. You can find out more about him through his websites:
