BiggerPockets Podcast 402: Identifying Your Best Market, Neighborhood, and Property in 8 Steps with Brandon and David
Sep 24 2020
When it comes to pulling the trigger on a rental property, what we have is a "paradox of choice." So. Many. Options. It's easy to suffer from Fear of Missing Out, and it's even easier to get overwhelmed by the vast array of options out there. That's where today's show comes in: press play, and Brandon and David will guide you through an 8-step process to closing on that first (or next) rental property. Along the way, they share the tools (BP Insights) and team members ("Core Four" and more!) they use to guide decisions about where and how to deploy their capital. Your action steps start with clarifying your goals, then we move to comparing markets and sizing up different neighborhoods using school district ratings and crime data. Next, we tackling finding a deal – whether you're using an agent, a wholesaler, turnkey provider, or going off-market yourself... and how to avoid getting into trouble by "trusting your gut and hoping" when you're in an unfamiliar territory. If you invest out of state, should you fly out? What about systems and standard operating procedures once you've got a tenant in the property? We answer all those questions, and more. Finally: We mention it a few times in this episode, and if you want to take advantage of our awesome new Pro benefit, BPInsights, use the discount code BPDATA for 20% of a Pro Annual membership. You'll get access to exclusive BPInsights Facebook group, a bonus webinar showing you how to use this platform to identify a market, and a bunch of other great Pro benefits including unlimited calculator use.

BiggerPockets Podcast 401: Follow these Steps to Get People to Know, Like, and Trust You with Jordan Harbinger
Sep 20 2020
Welcome to the brand new Sunday edition of the show – where we go beyond tactics and focus on the "mind game." In this premiere episode, you'll learn about the easy, free practice that might just be the highest ROI use of your time... and there is no one more qualified to teach this than Jordan Harbinger. Jordan brushes aside common myths about transactional "networking" using business cards or annoying LinkedIn messages. Instead, he shares the proven system he's used to build a world-class network. In fact, Jordan's strategies are so effective, the CIA and MI6 intelligence agencies hired him to teach them to their agents! So, how does this apply to real estate investing? Well.. what would it be like to have a solid stable of connections to mentors, private lenders, and people who actively look for opportunities for you? We're talking about people who you know would pick up your call. This show breaks down exactly how you can build those kind of relationship without changing your personality – even if you think you don't have a ton to offer the other person. Here's our challenge to you: put just one of these strategies into practice in your business this week, and see what happens. Hit us up on Instagram (@beardybrandon and @davidgreene24) to show us you did it! And remember, without committing to a system and following up, you won't get results. Let us know what you think of this new iteration of the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast. And if you're interested in more conversations like this, check out Jordan's podcast, the Jordan Harbinger Show, wherever you listen to us.



BiggerPockets Podcast 398: 22 BRRRR Properties in Under 10 Hours Per Week with Tarl Yarber
Sep 03 2020
When Tarl Yarber last appeared on the show (#189), we got a behind-the-scenes look at his monster house flipping business. He was doing a lot of volume, but here's the catch: he was stressed out and unhappy. Plus... with zero rentals to his name, he had to keep spinning the hamster wheel – "feeding the machine" – to make any money. Today's show is about a big mindset shift, and the systems and teams Tarl put in place to create a business that truly serves him, rather than the way around... and allows he and his wife to travel 200 days a year while working on his business rather than in it. We cover a lot of topics here, from high-level success principles to the specific real estate investing actions you can take – today – to adopt a more intentional and focused approach to building longterm wealth. Lastly – Tarl's an exceptional networker, and the guys discuss the importance of meeting up with other rockstar investors even if the pandemic is preventing you from doing it in person. So... how do you do that? Well, Tarl's hosting a virtual conference September 18-19, and he's offering a 50% discount to BiggerPockets Pro members (check your email). This isn't a series of webinars, either... You'll be able to actually meet up with other attendees through online breakout groups, so it solves for the biggest challenge most investors are facing right now.

BiggerPockets Podcast 378: A $500M Syndicator's View on Today's Market and How to Succeed as a "Hands-Off Investor" with Brian Burke
Apr 16 2020
With a recession already underway, we're turning to an investor with 30 years of experience, 3,000-plus multifamily units acquired, and one of the sharpest minds in real estate. Brian Burke is back today, and he sits down with Brandon and David to offer his interpretation of current events and to guide our audience through how to invest passively without violating Warren Buffett's No. 1 rule: "Never Lose Money!" Brian explains how his firm Praxis Capital is navigating COVID-19 and shares a few tips everyday investors can use to fortify their portfolios. We also discuss leverage, how lending practices are changing, and techniques you can use today to safeguard your investments against vacancy and drops in valuation. In the second half of the show, Brian speaks to those interested in becoming "hands-off" investors—whether you want to focus on making money in your day job or just don't want to deal with being a landlord. After all, BiggerPockets has 10-plus books on how to actively get deals done... but none (until now) on how to evaluate passive investment opportunities. a We go over how to meet syndicators, what red flags to look for, how to diversify your investments... and the absolute No. 1 quality to look for in a passive investment (hint: it's NOT the deal itself). This episode is packed with deep insights into the current market shift, but it's also a timeless lesson in evaluating syndication opportunities. For more info, check out Brian's new book, The Hands-Off Investor: An Insider's Guide to Investing in Passive Real Estate Syndications, and all the great bonus content, too.

BiggerPockets Podcast 377: The Riches Are... on the Radio? How to Dial in Your Marketing & Do 100+ Deals a Year with Chris Arnold
Apr 09 2020
Today's guest does 125 deals a year in Dallas—from his home base in the Caribbean. How? Well, he bailed on direct mail marketing and doubled down on radio ads. And when others froze up as the coronavirus spread, his team put in new systems and closed a $23,500 wholesale deal... without even stepping foot inside the house. Chris Arnold zigs when others zag, and today you'll learn how he sets up his business so he can consistently work ON it, not in it... while enjoying a great lifestyle in Tulum, Mexico. Chris shares timely tips for how to orchestrate deals while maintaining safe social distancing (he even holds "Zoom open houses" with multiple cash buyers at once); breaks down which team member handles each aspect of a transaction; and delivers a fantastic tip for new real estate investors struggling to stay focused. Plus—Chris shares how advertising on local radio stations has elevated his home-buying business to new levels. Look, he says, you might prefer podcasts... "but you are not your seller!" We play one of his ads on the show, and he guides us through how to research various audiences and negotiate the best rates with stations. This show covers it all—from the finer points of buying properties at deep discounts to the mindset shifts Chris has made along the way. Check it out, and if you enjoyed this please share it with just one family member or friend. We appreciate you, and we'll see you next Thursday.















BiggerPockets Podcast 365: Ret. Navy SEAL Jocko Willink on Embracing Discomfort and Leading Through Extreme Ownership (+ His Real Estate Investing Tips!)
Jan 16 2020
Decorated Navy SEAL commander. Author. Podcaster. And house hacker?! Yes, Jocko Willink invests in real estate and shares some great tips… but that's not the only reason he's on the show today. And it's not the only reason why he's sure to be one of our most popular guests to date. You see, Jocko looks at life's challenges differently. And after hearing his message, you might, too. Contractor rip you off? Good. Rental property flooded? Good. Spent a bunch of money and never found a deal? GOOD! Actually, great! Now you can learn something about yourself. You can get tougher. You can improve. That's the worldview Jocko outlines in his No. 1 New York Times bestseller Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. Today, we dive deep into how to apply this mindset to your business. PLUS, we discuss Jocko's philosophy on leading teams, managing risk, harnessing your ego, and foregoing comfort in pursuit of long-term goals like financial freedom. You'll also love getting to know Jocko the real estate investor! From buying a hoarder house filled with chicken bones to dividing his kids' bedrooms into "prison cell"-sized sleeping quarters, Jocko discusses how some sacrifice goes a long way toward creating financial freedom—even on a modest military salary. Beware: by the end of this show, you might just be staring down your fears and greeting your biggest obstacles head-on with the word "good."

BiggerPockets Podcast 345: “Vivid Visions” and 90-Day Sprints—Brandon’s Approach to Mobile Home Park Investing (and Life!)
Aug 29 2019
Today, Brandon Turner’s on the other side of the microphone. J and Carol Scott, co-hosts of the BiggerPockets Business Podcast, recently interviewed him… and the result was so epic we wanted to share it here, too! In this episode, Brandon reveals why he chose mobile home park investing (hint: NOT necessarily because it’s the “best” investment) and describes the method his team used to get hundreds of pads under contract in just a few months. (It's an approach YOU can apply using the new BiggerPockets Intention Journal.) But this show is about much more than real estate. It’s about avoiding that all-too-common pitfall where you set an ambitious goal only to see it buried under an avalanche of more urgent (but less important) responsibilities. Brandon shares the tools he’s used to break that cycle and how he’s applied them to other challenges—like moving to Hawaii, improving his personal health, and spending more meaningful time with his family. You’ll hear how Brandon’s first business venture failed, how he got into real estate investing for cash flow, and how he discovered a way to bring BIG value to BiggerPockets as Employee #2, despite not owning a computer the year before! Oh, and you’ll learn the meaning of “M.I.N.S.” and the role they play in moving your business forward (ESPECIALLY when the going gets tough). Brandon also shares why writing out a “vivid vision” of your future might be the best thing you can do to move yourself closer to your ideal life; why he asks, “What would be awesome?” and then works backwards; and why he and his wife organize a goal-setting retreat together on the same day every year. This is an amazing episode that lays out a battle plan for getting WAY more done while setting aside quality time for friends, family, and fun.

Jul 04 2019
Want to learn from two guys who have weathered several real estate market cycles and come out on top? You’re in the right place!

The guys share the lessons they learned from the 2008 crash (hint: don’t rely too heavily on credit) and explain how they’re preparing for the next one. They break down how multifamily investing is just like running a business, and why hiring an assistant is the most important first step when scaling up. Russell and Robert also tell us why having an A-student mentality can hinder new investors (and make them a target for gurus), and why you don’t need to know every step in order to just get started. You’ll learn why Robert is about to make his 137th trip to Belize, why he and Russell stopped investing in Mexico and Australia, and why you should design your own personal investment philosophy, too. If you’re a big-picture thinker interested in using the tax code to your advantage and staying on top of market cycles, this show will blow your mind.

Apr 18 2019
What does true wealth mean to you? Maybe it’s having control over your time or having the means to donate part of your income to charity. Maybe it means feeling healthy enough to jump out of bed and attack the day.In today’s episode, Brandon, David, and Josh (remember him?) speak with three financially independent investors about what motivated each of them to work so hard toward their goals.Early in their careers, David Osborn, Pat Hiban, and Tim Rhode realized they shared a common goal: to steadily accumulate streams of passive—or as they call it—“horizontal” income. So they got together and made a serious commitment, vowing to hold each other accountable every step of the way—even if it meant dishing out some tough love.In this episode, you’ll learn how finding an accountability partner can change the trajectory of your career and life, and how giving time and money can not only make you feel better but also make you more wealthy. You’ll also learn how David, Pat, and Tim built dozens of streams of income by living below their means, connecting with the right people, and taking advantage of opportunities.This is a must-listen if you've ever asked the question, “Why am I working so hard, anyway?” You’ll come away from this episode motivated to hold yourself and your loved ones accountable so you can reach your goals together.
