    986: Are Tiny Homes a Good Investment? How a $50,000 Home Pencils Out

    986: Are Tiny Homes a Good Investment? How a $50,000 Home Pencils Out
    Are tiny homes a good investment? For just $50,000, you can get a brand new tiny home investment—not even fifteen percent of the average single-family home price in the United States. Even better? These tiny investment properties can bring in over $15,000 per year in rent, making your payoff period minuscule compared to a standard real estate investment. To learn more, we brought Steven Harrell, tiny home builder and investor, on the show to walk through all the numbers and how investors can cash in big on these tiny homes. Steven has seen the tiny home industry shift from off-the-grid, fringe mini homes in the woods to now a mainstream necessity as more Americans struggle to pay the sky-high cost of rent or a mortgage on standard homes. With affordability at a forty-year low, Americans need cheaper housing options, and tiny homes might be the perfect answer. We discuss the costs of tiny homes, how much they rent for, finding and buying land to put them on, insurance, financing, and how beginners can get started on this investment at a very attractive price point. Want tiny houses with big profits? This episode is for you!  In This Episode We Cover How much does a tiny home actually cost to build, and how much it’ll rent for  Tiny home appreciation and whether these small investments are for cash flow only How to find and buy the land for your next tiny home, plus what you MUST look for The average insurance cost for a tiny home (it’ll surprise you) Why the average tiny home tenant might not be who you think it is Exactly what Steven would do now to get started investing in tiny homes  And So Much More!

Rob’s did! We’ll share the full story at the start of the show. Next, an investor debates selling her performing rentals to scale into a bigger property. We also answer how to use a HELOC (home equity line of credit) to quickly grow your real estate portfolio. Why are contractors so hard to find? A veteran investor/contractor shares the reason why most contractors suddenly disappear.

    984: Pay Off Student Loans or Invest in Real Estate: Which Makes You Wealthier?

    984: Pay Off Student Loans or Invest in Real Estate: Which Makes You Wealthier?
    Should you pay off student loans or invest in real estate? This is the question Tom Keating had to ask himself back in 2018. At the time, he had no real estate investing experience and only picked up The Book on Rental Property Investing by chance. He still had student loans but decided to spend his savings (which could have made him debt-free) on the down payment for his first rental property. Now, just six years later, Tom has an entire real estate portfolio of passive and active investments and is free from his W2! If you’ve got some form of debt—student loans, credit card debt, medical debt, etc.—you might think you can’t invest in real estate, but you’d be wrong. In today’s episode, Tom breaks down the simple equation you can use to figure out whether you should pay off your debt or invest. Tom took the path less traveled, and now, he’s benefiting from it, being able to go anywhere in the world, live where he wants, and control his schedule. Tom also shares a simple yet unbelievably valuable way to find the hottest real estate markets and areas to buy rental properties. The best part? The data he uses is FREE, and you can copy his same strategy to get cash flow, appreciation, or a bit of both! In This Episode We Cover Whether to pay off student loans or invest and the simple calculation you can use to decide  The super simple way to find hot real estate investing areas with appreciation potential  Quitting your W2 job and becoming a full-time real estate investor, even with a small portfolio  How to diversify your real estate portfolio with both passive and active investments  Why Tom invests across multiple states (and strategies) instead of drilling down on one area And So Much More!

    983: BiggerNews: With Slow Spring Homebuying, Zillow Predicts Price Drops in 2025

    983: BiggerNews: With Slow Spring Homebuying, Zillow Predicts Price Drops in 2025
    Zillow’s latest housing market forecast shows a decline in home prices over the next year after a very slow spring homebuying season. While spring is traditionally the hottest time of the housing market, with more sellers and buyers hitting the market at once, this year was stunted significantly. Will this trend continue as housing inventory remains at rock-bottom levels, or are things gradually improving, with a return to normalcy in sight? We’ve got Dr. Skylar Olsen, Chief Economist at Zillow, on to share the latest forecast and which markets could be in trouble. With mortgage rates still hovering around seven percent, homebuyers and sellers are stuck. Sellers don’t want to trade into a more expensive mortgage payment, and buyers can’t afford today’s median home price. As a result, some under-the-radar, affordable real estate markets are seeing home and rent prices increase, while some traditionally hot markets are already seeing price corrections. Where will the next correction hit, and which markets will have the most opportunity for real estate investors? Skylar explains it all, plus why Zillow updated their recent home price forecast to show a DROP in home values over the next year. In This Episode We Cover Zillow’s updated housing market forecast and why they’re predicting prices to drop The spring homebuying season’s “extra slowdown” and why buying/selling is so stunted  Skylar’s 2025 housing market and mortgage rate predictions  What happens when mortgage rates get cut, and whether this could fire up the housing market again The real estate markets seeing the most price corrections, plus hot markets Zillow is keeping an eye on Markets with the strongest rent growth (for single-family AND multifamily investors) And So Much More!

    981: Seeing Greene: Investing with High Rates, Recession Prepping, & RVs vs. ADUs
    High interest rates are stopping you from investing, so what do you do? Wondering how to prepare for a recession if one hits soon?

    980: Does Buying a Business Beat Real Estate Investing in 2024?

    980: Does Buying a Business Beat Real Estate Investing in 2024?
    Today’s guest makes up to $100,000 per year, PER investment, by buying businesses. Yep, you heard that right. We’re not talking about a few hundred bucks a month in cash flow like most rental properties get you. Instead, you can make a living by buying a business “no one wants,” which is exactly what Matt DeBoth is doing. Matt saw the writing on the wall after building up a sizable real estate portfolio. Low interest rates flooded buyers into the housing market, putting those with properties to sell in a great position. So, Matt sold many of his rental properties and wondered where he should put the money into. Over the next year, he spent his days researching businesses to buy, talking to business brokers, and eventually landed on a local pizza franchise. Matt was able to turn it around, and after months of hard work, he’s collecting serious cash flow from a business that only takes a few hours a week to manage! If you want to buy yourself a six-figure income stream and feel like now is the perfect time to take a pause from real estate investing, Matt’s story may be just what you need to get started. He shares how much it costs to buy a small business, how to manage it, what to look for in business investment opportunities, and what you can do TODAY to get started! In This Episode We Cover How to create a six-figure income stream by buying small business franchises  Buying the businesses “no one wants” and how to easily spot an investing opportunity Why a poorly run business can mean tremendous potential for you to make more money The low-money-down small business loans that Matt is using to buy businesses  How to manage your business the right way so you only need to work a few hours a week  Who should (and shouldn’t) buy businesses, and how to pick one  And So Much More!

    979: BiggerNews: What Happens to The Housing Market if Mortgage Rates Stay High?

    979: BiggerNews: What Happens to The Housing Market if Mortgage Rates Stay High?
    Mortgage rates were supposed to be going down by now, but what happened? Even in late 2023, many housing market experts predicted that we’d be seeing high to mid six percent mortgage rates at this point and hovering around the high five percent rate mark by the end of the year, but the Fed isn’t showing any sign of lowering rates soon. Some experts even believe rates could go UP again this year as the job market stays hot and the economy sees unprecedented strength. This begs the question: What IF mortgage rates remain high? It’s a reality many of us don’t want to see, but 2024 could end with minor, if any, rate cuts, keeping monthly mortgage payments high and affordability low. So, what should an investor do in this situation? Sit on the sidelines? Invest in a different asset class? Pray to Jerome Powell? While that last option may be worthwhile, top real estate investors are saying that NOW is the time to buy BEFORE rates fall. What do we mean? We’ve got the entire expert investor panel from On the Market here to give their take on what investors should do IF rates don’t fall. From house flipping to long-term buy and hold rentals, our nationwide panel of investors shares exactly what they’re doing to make money even with high interest rates. Plus, we’ll give our predictions on when rates could fall, what will happen to housing inventory, what young people should do NOW to get their first house, and why investors need to “reset” if they want to thrive in this high rate housing market.  Support today’s show sponsor, Rent App: the free and easy way to collect rent! In This Episode We Cover Mortgage rate predictions and when interest rates could finally start falling  What should investors do IF mortgage rates stay high throughout 2024 The “lock-in effect” and whether or not high rates are leading to lower inventory  The homes that are flying off the market in many areas (and the ones that are sitting) How young people can creatively get into their first home or investment property Why investors MUST “reset” their expectations if they’re to build wealth in this housing market  And So Much More!

    976: How to Start Mobile Home Investing (The Right Way) for Just $15,000

    976: How to Start Mobile Home Investing (The Right Way) for Just $15,000
    Can you start investing in real estate with just $15,000? Yep, and mobile home investing is how you do it. We know what you’re thinking, “I don’t want to own trailers! I want to invest in “real” houses where the “real” money is at!” That’s what today’s guest John Fedro thought too some twenty years ago when he stumbled into mobile home investing, which, at the time, was even too embarrassing for him to share. But, over the past two decades, this at-first “embarrassing” investment has made him wealthy, and if you follow his lead, it can do the same for you. John has successfully made money with mobile homes in various ways: buying and flipping, wholesaling, renting, and seller financing, the main topic of today’s episode. He provides a masterclass on how to make money buying and selling mobile homes, where you essentially take on the role of the bank. However, it’s crucial to be cautious. Mishandling this could lead you into an ethical gray area and potentially harm your buyer. On the other hand, getting it right can create a win-win situation for both the buyer and seller while making you wealthy.  John shares his whole strategy, plus how he’s getting into deals for $15,000 and often making DOUBLE his money and $400 per month (or more) cash flow per door when he seller finances these properties. If you want a way to get into real estate investing without a ton of cash but with the potential to make a serious return on your money, this may be your winning strategy. In This Episode We Cover The three “levels” of mobile home investing and how much each costs to get into The danger of seller financing the wrong way and how it can hurt your buyer Why you MUST background check EVERYONE you seller-finance a mobile home to One thing that new mobile home investors overlook that can ruin your properties The exit strategies you must know about to avoid losing money on your next deal Whether or not we would invest in mobile homes (and our concerns with seller financing)  And So Much More!

    975: BiggerNews: Rent Price Updates and Why Landlords Are Optimistic About 2024 w/Zumper’s Anthemos Georgiades

    975: BiggerNews: Rent Price Updates and Why Landlords Are Optimistic About 2024 w/Zumper’s Anthemos Georgiades
    The rental market could finally be returning to stability after a wild past four years. Since 2020, we’ve seen rent prices skyrocket almost overnight, with huge asking price increases for single-family homes, multifamily apartments, and everything in between. But that trend quickly reversed as the fight against inflation began, mortgage rates rose, and would-be homebuyers sat still, not knowing whether to stay renting or search for a home. But, a return to “equilibrium” may be coming soon, and that’s good news for landlords and renters alike. To break it all down, Zumper’s Anthemos Georgiades joins the show to share his team’s latest rent data. Anthemos brings some surprisingly good news for landlords, from new month-over-month rent growth data to consumer preferences shifting to a more renter-focused lifestyle; now may be the moment landlords have been waiting for as renter demand looks promising and rates stay high. We’ll also discuss the inflation lag effect our rental market has caused and how to stay on top of current rent prices.  Has the dream of homeownership died?

    971: BiggerNews: Mid-Year Housing Market Update + Mortgage Rate Forecast w/Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather
    We’re almost halfway through 2024, and the housing market is at a standstill. Mortgage rates are high, inventory is low, buyers have fewer choices, and many homeowners refuse to put their properties up for sale. But could things change in the second half of this year if interest rates fall and inventory improves, even if ever so slightly? We brought Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather on this BiggerNews episode to get her team’s latest 2024 housing market predictions. First, Daryl explains how our stubbornly strong economy put the Federal Reserve in a challenging position and whether or not we could hit the magic two-percent inflation rate goal. Will buyers ever get a break in this tough housing market, and could lower interest rates improve things? Daryl shares what she thinks will happen once the Fed finally cuts rates, how low rates could go, and whether or not this will heat home prices up yet again. Some “unusual demand” may come late this year for housing, but will agents, brokers, and sellers see the traditionally hot summer season they’ve been waiting for? We’re answering all these questions and more with this housing market data leader on this BiggerNews episode!  Support today’s show sponsor, Rent App: the free and easy way to collect rent!

    969: Seeing Greene: I Can’t Find Tenants! Should I Sell or Lower My Rent?
    Your rental properties are sitting vacant—what do you do? Do you sell or lower your rent price to spark some interest? Will reducing your rent open you up to bad tenants? We’re getting into exactly what you should do in this sticky landlording situation, and many others, in this episode of Seeing Greene. This time, we’re sharing wisdom on what to do when you can’t find tenants, how to invest with just $15,000 in 2024, which rental property mortgage to pay off first, and whether to keep or sell your newly renovated rental. As usual, your real estate investing experts, David Greene and Rob Abasolo, are on the show to help answer any investing question you can think of. Our first video submission comes from a new investor who is completing his first BRRRR (buy, rehab, rent, refinance, repeat). With only $15,000 in the bank and a desire to build a real estate portfolio, what’s the BEST way to use such a small amount of cash? Next, a landlord with multiple rentals wants to know which mortgage to pay down first: her primary residence or her other rentals. An out-of-state investor with a vacant property struggles to find a tenant even after lowering his rent price. A medium-term rental owner with a burnt property asks whether to sell or re-rent the property after his insurance-paid renovations are completed. Want to ask David and Rob a question? If so, submit your question here so they can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene, or hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take!

In today’s episode, Noble will walk through exactly what you can do to start making tens of thousands, if not millions, with rental arbitrage.
