  • Alex Hormozi is quite literally the one hundred-million-dollar man. If you haven’t heard of Alex before, prepare to have your mind blown wide open. He’s the poster child for entrepreneurialism on the internet, founding multiple eight and nine-figure businesses, including his current venture that does over $150M per year in revenue. He’s one of the wisest founders and CEOs out there, not because he does so much, but because he knows when to do less.

    One of Alex’s first successes, Gym Launch, proved how repeatable building multi-million dollar businesses can be. He quickly ramped up revenue, grew a team, and began cash-flowing seven figures. But, this was just the beginning. Over the past decade, Alex has advised numerous start-ups and established businesses, blowing revenue and sales figures out of the water by introducing easily-repeatable systems into the mix

    There aren’t many people who think like Alex is in his industry, or in any industry, to be fair. But, you don’t need to be just like Alex to use his teachings in real life. In this episode, Alex lays out the scaling system that will make you seven figures before you know it. He also talks about the one investment every entrepreneur should make—one that almost guarantees success, regardless of the field you're in.

    Want to learn how to ditch the burnout, make moves that count, and start bringing in millions? Hit play on this episode.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Alex Hormozi’s journey from complete rookie to $150M in cash flow 

    How to scale your business from low revenue to seven-figures and beyond 

    The “weak link” every entrepreneur should focus on strengthening immediately 

    Hiring the “stallions” that can run your business better than you’ve ever dreamt 

    The “prescriptions of activation” that lead to massive success, with far less confusion 

    Why just being “good enough” can lead to more success than people think 

    And So Much More!

  • Quitting your job is a big decision and it doesn’t always lead to the perfect outcome—at least not immediately. Most people think that you have to be miserable or make very little money to want to quit a job, but even high earners still find themselves struggling to attend their nine-to-fives. Pat Hiban is the perfect example. He quit during his prime even as he was making a high income and after owning his own company. Regardless of all the respect, responsibility, and ability to make phenomenal income, it just wasn't enough for Pat.

    You may be feeling the same. Maybe you’re daydreaming about multifamily investing as you sit at work, or picturing the perfect vacation rental property on your commute. Whatever your reason, quitting might be the best move for you to make, but only if it’s the right time. Don’t worry if you’re struggling with decision fatigue, Pat and fellow quitter Tim Rhode just came out with their newest book, The Quitter’s Manifesto: Quit a Job You Hate for the Work You Love.

    In it, Pat and Tim give stories and tools that will help you on your path to building wealth while leaving a job that you hate. The resources you’ll find in this book are exactly what our very own David Greene used when deciding to quit his highly lucrative, but mentally draining job as a police officer. If you’ve been sitting on the fence, not knowing the next step to take in your career, this book may be exactly what you need.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How to quit your job and start investing in real estate full-time

    The five factors of a soul-sucking job and how to evaluate whether or not it’s time to jump ship

    Finding the "quitter’s trapeze” that can help you transition from W-2 to self-employed worker

    Building your team of quitters who will hold you accountable and take you to the next level of your career

    What it looks like when you’re ready to quit and how to emotionally prepare for the impact

    And So Much More!

  • Everyone wants more real estate leads. It doesn’t matter if you’re an agent, investor, flipper, or mortgage broker. The more prospective buyers and sellers, the better. But what happens when you finally get those leads? Maybe you’re cold calling, meeting for coffee, or linking up at the property. What do you say to let leads know that you’re the best agent or investor around and that they can trust you to get the deal done? Juliet Lalouel has a simple, fool-proof answer for you.

    Juliet operates out of Hawaii, one of the nation's hottest real estate markets. She’s done everything from working in restaurants to running a bike business in her garage, to even becoming the go-to matchmaker for musicians that want to invest in real estate. She’s worn a lot of hats and even decided to leave one of the top teams in the state to go solo as an investor agent. When she realized all the leads were coming from her own personal network, she decided to make the jump on her own.

    Now, she’s actively flipping, buying, and selling homes for not only herself but her investor clients throughout the islands. She’s been able to grow a respectable network, one which many investors dream of having, and she did all of this through tweaking her “tonality.” If you want to hear why this small change led to such big results, be sure to listen all the way to the end of this episode.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How to get more real estate leads as an agent, investor, or broker

    Why “tonality” is such an important part of your pitch when selling yourself to clients

    Building your investor network and gaining the trust of the biggest players in your area

    Why every investor or agent should reassess their emotional intelligence (and how to improve it)

    The five-second pitch to earn a lead’s trust as soon as they pick up the phone

    Why no type of experience is unimportant when it comes to building real estate skills

  • Every investor has wondered how to invest like Warren Buffett. He’s arguably the best stock trader of all time—preaching the fundamentals of investing in equities, something that most modern-day investors seem to forget. We’re seeing the same thing in the real estate industry. With a runup of home prices and stock prices over the past two years, almost every investing strategy has worked. But, as prices begin to plummet, overconfident investors are starting to see the errors of their ways and that making money isn’t always easy. So in today’s risky environment, we have to ask: what would Warren (Buffett) do?

    Someone who’s been asking that question for years is Trey Lockerbie. He’s co-host of We Study Billionaires, where he interviews some of the best and brightest investors on planet earth. Trey has lived an interesting life. He was a musician, went on the road for years, started a kombucha brand, and now reads everything he can on how to build billion-dollar businesses and billion-dollar wealth. With the aura of fear many of us are feeling in the investing space, Trey brings in some much-needed clarity on what investors should and shouldn’t be doing right now. And he got some of this advice directly from top stock investor himself, Warren Buffett.

    While we do go deep into the coming opportunities for real estate investors, we also hear about how stock investing isn’t so different, and why the massive drop in cryptocurrency prices could be an opportunity for investors who are on the fence about blockchain. Regardless of what you invest in, how much you invest, or whether or not you’ve started investing, Trey can enlighten you on how to maximize the decision you’re about to make.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Secret investing lessons learned at a dinner with Warren Buffett

    Understanding the “human” element behind why markets rise and fall

    Fear vs. greed and whether or not to buy in an overly pessimistic investing environment

    Why Bitcoin is becoming more attractive to real estate investors even as its price drops

    Inflation, money printing, and how the world’s debt works

    How high will interest rates go and what investors should prepare for

    Starting a business that can sell for millions (or billions) and how to get there

    And So Much More!

  • The BRRRR method (buy, rehab, rent, refinance, repeat) is commonly known among real estate investors as one of the fastest ways to build a portfolio of rental properties. The beauty of the BRRRR strategy is that it takes less time and money to get properties to cash flow with baked-in appreciation. But what if you were to ramp up the BRRRR method, so instead of doing a BRRRR every year, you did it 125 times a year. Sounds a little insane, right?

    Meet the man behind the madness, Chad Beeman, who has (and this is not an exaggeration) bought and BRRRRed fifty rental properties in the past six months. This is a staggering amount of properties to buy in such a short amount of time. The craziest part? Chad is planning on purchasing another seventy properties over the next six months! So how is he able to buy so many properties, scale so quickly, and do so without losing his balance?

    Chad walks through his small team, system, and thought process that helps him stay so successful. He’s had some blunders in the past (like spending $30K rehabbing the wrong house) but has thought of them as “tuition” when investing in real estate. Thanks to these mistakes, he’s been able to grow faster, build more than a million dollars worth of appreciation, and shoot well past financial freedom in his real estate investing journey.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Why the BRRRR method is perfect for those who are strapped for cash but want to build wealth

    How the current housing market is affecting BRRRR deals and the art of making multiple offers

    Becoming an “accidental millionaire” and how real estate wealth grows in the background

    Building a small team, learning to outsource, and developing the “Who Not How” mentality 

    Real estate partnerships and how they can allow you to buy more properties using less money

    Why you should always double-check you’re at the right house BEFORE doing a renovation

    And So Much More!

  • A 3D printed house isn’t all that different from a traditional home—except they are stronger, faster to build, easier to maintain, and cost much less than your average “stick-built” home. These 3D printed homes can be printed in as little as two days, with a crew of only two workers, using much cheaper material than traditional builders use. Does this mean that a wave of ultra-affordable homes is about to hit the market, or is this still just a futuristic theory that may never come to fruition?

    We’re back with this month’s BiggerNews, as we dive into the world of 3D printed houses, the future of building costs, and how the housing crisis could be quickly solved with printable and profitable homes. Zachary Mannheimer, CEO of Alquist 3D, is here to share his knowledge on how the construction industry is about to be severely disrupted. To Zachary, 3D printed homes could help millions of Americans who struggle to find housing, as well as make housing affordable for everyday workers.

    Zachary’s team designs and builds 3D printed homes, and while it may seem a bit far off to most investors, Zachary thinks we’re only a few short years away from a takeover in how housing is built. With massive cost savings for developers, immediately accessible parts for maintenance, and some of the strongest materials used in construction, 3D printed houses aren’t just a replacement for traditional homes, they’re a complete upgrade.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How does 3D printing work and the new way to build residential homes

    The housing inventory shortage and how 3D printed houses could be the solution

    Huge cost savings and how developers could build homes for far cheaper

    Comparing 3D printed houses to traditional homes and which will win in the long-run

    Whether cheaper homes could help or hurt landlords and real estate investors 

    Creating jobs, trade schools, and technical programs around 3D printing

    And So Much More!

  • Is private money lending the next best way to invest? To the everyday landlord, home flipper, or once-in-a-while investor, private lending seems completely foreign. Why would you lend money when you can put it into your deals? And even if you wanted to, wouldn’t it take millions, or at least a few hundred thousand dollars to get started? Surprisingly, private money lending is available to more people than you think, and it could be your next way to make truly passive income.

    Alex Breshears and Beth Johnson were neither millionaires nor active investors when they started lending private money. Over time, they realized that they had grown relationships with active real estate investors, many of which always needed funding for the next deal. While swinging hammers and painting baseboards may sound fun to active BRRRRers or flippers, to Alex and Beth, the passive income that came in from private money lending was even better.

    They’re now so ingrained in the world of private money lending that they’ve written the newest BiggerPockets book, Lend to Live, where they talk about how to build “hassle-free passive income” by lending private money. In this episode, they go over how a new investor can start lending, what to look out for in a lender when you need money for deals, and how even with a few thousand dollars, you too can start building truly passive income streams.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How any investor can start lending money for a substantial profit

    Why private lending has become more popular as investment funding becomes limited

    Hard money vs. private money and why you should never confuse the two

    What to look for in a private money lender and how to vet them before you invest

    Protecting your money as a private lender and what you need to do to secure a return

    Where private money lenders can find investors who are looking to invest

  • Vacation rentals, real estate agent commissions, brokerage fees, insurance quotes, and everything in between just start to scratch the surface of who Christian Bachelder is. Some of you may have seen Christian before on our YouTube channel where he talks about interest rates, loan products, and other future financing projections. But today, Christian gets to talk about how he not only built a large rental portfolio but did so while running multiple businesses.

    Even as full-time workers, many Americans feel like they don’t have enough time in the day to relax, let alone invest. So how does someone with a jam-packed schedule, a lot of pressure, and a mountain of responsibilities find time to not only buy one rental but fifteen rental properties in a year? To Christian, it took a bit of trial and error, but the answer is simply making your time as efficient as humanly possible.

    He’s been able to heavily invest, start and run one of the top mortgage brokerages in the country, work as an agent, and provide insurance to clients as well. He drills down into what business owners and investors alike need to do to reclaim their time, and once it’s theirs, use it to the highest and best use. He also drops some financing pro tips that may help you lower the down payment you need or close with a better-than-average interest rate!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Turning your referrals into full-blown businesses that can build your wealth

    Why investors should always choose brokers, lenders, and agents who invest themselves 

    The velocity of time and why focusing on “return on time” beats ROI when investing

    Creative financing and loan programs that can save you serious cash at closing

    Partnering up to not only buy real estate but build businesses faster

    How to get three times more work done in the same amount of time

    And So Much More!

  • Knowing how to buy your first rental property can be the difference between you building a life of financial freedom or merely treading water working for active income. The life of a real estate investor isn’t glamorous, but it leads to generational wealth, time freedom, and the ability to do what you want, when you want, with who you want. The first step to becoming a real estate investor is buying your first real estate deal. This first step is where ninety-nine percent of people stop, but it’s where you will start.

    Dave Meyer, VP of Data and Analytics and host of On The Market, has built a financial freedom-permitting property portfolio over the last decade. He doesn’t have thousands of units, but even with his medium-sized portfolio, he’s been able to travel the world, live abroad, and continuously build wealth. He’s here to teach you exactly how to do the same by buying your first, second, or third real estate deal in the next 365 days!

    If you’re able to do so, you will see your life start to change before your eyes. Money will be easier to find, deals will come your way, and passive income streams will be dug in your direction. If you’re able to buy your first (or next) deal like Dave describes, put systems in place for future purchases, and slowly build a team around you, your dream rental property portfolio won’t be too far away.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    The 3 “Ds” of real estate investing and how to get over their obstacles

    Why every smart investor continues to buy even in murky housing markets like today

    Building the “LAPS” funnel that will send real estate deals your way

    How to analyze a rental property for free using the BiggerPockets rental property calculator

    The different types of ways you can buy real estate with no money down 

    Why the first three real estate deals matter more than most people think

    And So Much More!

  • REITs have long been a passive income generator for many who don’t want to deal with the trash, toilets, and tenants that come with rental property investing. No 2 AM phone calls, no listings, no showings, and no sales. With REITs (real estate investment trusts) you simply click a button, buy a share in the company, and wait for your passive income (dividends) to flow into your account. Seems pretty sweet right? Matt Argersinger from The Motley Fool agrees.

    Matt isn’t your typical stock investor. He’s owned multiple rental properties and has even house hacked and put in some serious sweat equity. He knows that leverage and forced appreciation are huge wealth builders in the realm of real estate, but still chooses to invest in REITs instead of rentals. Why? Matt is focused more on creating passive income—as in TRULY passive income—no tenant surprises or maintenance calls to make. Matt wants to research, invest, and let his net worth grow, all while still receiving real estate-generated cash flow.

    Maybe you’re skeptical. How can passive investing be so easy? If you’re brand new to REITs, Matt does a phenomenal job at explaining what they are, how they work, which types to buy, and what you can do to get started investing today. Regardless of your knowledge of the stock market, if you like income-producing real estate, this episode is for you.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    What are REITs (real estate investment trusts) and how they work

    Why buy REITs instead of rentals, plus the benefits of both

    Cheap REITs that are becoming undervalued as the stock market crashes 

    Mortgage vs. equity REITs and why higher cash flow could mean higher risk

    The dangers of day trading and how long investors should hold onto REITs

    The key metrics any investor needs to research before investing in a REIT

    And So Much More!

  • Rental property investing is a great way to make cash flow, or so it seemed in the pre-2022 world. Interest rates are rising, home prices have skyrocketed, and rent can’t keep pace with this market. Brian Davila saw this in his portfolio and knew he needed to do something about it. Buying “traditional” rental properties wasn’t going to cut it, especially when the monthly cash flow was a measly few hundred dollars. How many houses would it take to grant him a life of financial freedom?

    To most people, Brian Davila looks spoiled for choice. He’s a young guy, doing forty or so flips per year, bringing in big active and passive income checks. If you think that Brian can’t relate to the average investor, you’re wrong. Brain immigrated to the United States at just six years old, dropped out of high school in the ninth grade, and had his first child at nineteen. He was working at Las Vegas day clubs making ten dollars an hour before he decided to become a real estate agent.

    After cold calling hundreds of sellers a week, Brian was able to grow his clientele and eventually become a top agent. The only problem? He had no time for his family. He made the switch to start flipping and buying long-term rentals but had to pivot once again to a different strategy that would make him more cash flow even as home prices rise. Brian knows what it takes to become very successful in real estate in a short amount of time, and if Brian can do it, anyone can. 

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How to become a successful agent and why most people shouldn’t get their license 

    Transitioning from trading your time for money to letting your money give you back time

    Brian’s biggest mistake when growing a fast-paced real estate investing business 

    Flipping forty homes a year and how to get around permitting pain points 

    Short-term rentals vs. long-term rentals and which will survive in 2022

    Lowering your tax bill as a real estate investor and avoiding capital gains 

    And So Much More!

  • Most new investors don’t know how to find private money for real estate. They think private money is only reserved for those with a Rolodex full of rich or well-off business people, investors, or relatives. Using this line of thinking, most real estate investors will simply buy a deal, save up for years, and do it again. If you want to get on the fast track to a respectable real estate portfolio—private money is the way to go.

    But you don’t have to take our word for it. Amy Mahjoory, private money expert, is back on part two of her financing and funding masterclass. Amy has grown her real estate portfolio quickly, thanks to private money. On just her second deal she was able to pay for a significant portion of the property using her private lender. Now, she urges investors, no matter their experience level, to do the same.

    This time, Amy walks through five strategies that any investor can use to connect with private money lenders today. These strategies are simple—so simple that almost anyone can use them and find success quickly. They don’t require lots of money, time, or experience, but you need to be aware of them next time you’re in a perfect situation to make your pitch. Try these five strategies today, and you may see your inbox flooded with private money offers! 

    In This Episode We Cover

    Why raising private money is easy when you’ve built the right systems and strategies

    Referrals and why word-of-mouth is one of the most powerful marketing tactics

    Connecting with non-real estate-related professionals to raise money

    How one small “investment” in attending an event can open you up to dozens of lenders at once

    Building an online presence so you’re known, liked, and trusted by a large community 

    Hosting and attending meetups, no matter the industry or your experience, to find private money

    And So Much More!

  • Raising capital for real estate is at some point what every investor must do. When you’re buying your first rental property, you can easily use your cash savings or a conventional loan to close on the property. But, on your second, third, fourth, or one-hundredth deal, finding the money (or financing) to get the deal done may start to get a little difficult. So how do you come up with the money to buy more rental properties, house flips, or commercial real estate, WITHOUT asking your parents, grandma, or friends for cash?

    Amy Mahjoory has raised $20M from private money lenders, none of which are related to her (she makes sure of that). Think of Amy as a capital connector, getting to know as many existing, or potential, private money lenders as possible. We know what you’re thinking, “private money lending sounds complicated, don’t only big investors do that?” Think of a private money lender as anyone who has money, isn’t doing much with it, and wants to make more of it.

    These lenders could be your taxi driver, your dentist, or maybe a friend of a friend. Private money is all around you, and if financing or cash reserves is what’s stopping you from doing more deals, we urge you to take the four steps that Amy outlines today. There’s a good chance you already know a private money lender!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    What is private money lending and why it’s so different from traditional financing

    Building a reputation that’ll turn a stranger into a trusted lender quickly

    The “four-second power pitch” that’ll land you lenders immediately

    How to make your lending process legit and the documentation needed to do so

    Addressing investor fear and how to make lenders feel confident in you

    The key to open, honest, and powerful communication when talking to any potential lender

    And So Much More!

  • Building a rental property empire isn’t easy. Whether you dream of owning five, ten, or two hundred rental units, there is a way to get there—you just need to know what it is. It took Sam Primm seven years to figure out the smartest way to invest in real estate, and now he’s here to share it with you! Sam, like many people, didn’t hate his nine-to-five job but knew that being on some else's schedule wasn’t bearable for the rest of his life.

    Sam partnered up flipping a few houses here, buying a few rental units there, and wholesaling for some extra cash. Three years into his real estate side business, Sam took the leap and went full-time into investing. Since then, he’s been able to buy over $20M in real estate, totaling his portfolio to a whopping $40M. This may seem unachievable to the average real estate investor, but Sam makes it clear that he isn’t special and is just a regular guy buying rentals.

    Through his real estate tenure, he’s been able to define exactly what the average investor needs to do to scale their real estate portfolio. His “SCALE” system isn’t complex, but it will help you double, triple, or quadruple the amount of real estate you own in a very short amount of time. Itching to go full-time into investing like Sam did? Tune into this episode, he’ll show you exactly how he did it.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    What to know BEFORE you quit your job to go full-time into real estate investing

    The “SCALE” system that allows you to grow your real estate portfolio faster 

    The best way to meet private money lenders, investing experts, and future partners

    Getting your spouse on board the real estate investing train

    Why fear is the most important feeling for new real estate investors

    Using social media to grow your network so you can scale faster

    And So Much More!

  • Investing in apartment buildings may seem like a big jump to everyday real estate investors. Mom and pop landlords—used to buying single-family houses or duplexes—may see apartment buildings as far outside their reach. And this, for the most part, has been true over the past two years. With high competition, equally high prices, and syndication deals popping off every other second, regular investors haven’t been able to invest in large multifamily real estate—until now.

    Andrew Cushman and Matt Faircloth started as solo-investors like most of us. But, over the past decade, they’ve both grown large multifamily portfolios, and know exactly how hard it's been over the past two years. They’re finally starting to see some cracks in the institutional armor of multifamily, allowing small-time investors to get deals while everyone else is fleeing from high interest rates and an oncoming economic downturn.

    If you’ve been waiting to level up your investment portfolio, make big equity gains, and bring in massive passive income, then this is the episode for you. And, if you feel like you’re too new to invest, the BiggerPockets Multifamily Bootcamp, hosted by Matt Faircloth, will give you everything you need to go from onlooker to investor!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Multifamily “tailwinds” that are making apartment investing easier in 2022 and 2023

    The hidden opportunity of multifamily that most investors don’t pay attention to

    How creativity became crucial in the real estate industry and using it to score better deals

    Which multifamily properties are safe from an economic downturn and inflation 

    The seven ways that you can mitigate multifamily risk when investing

    How to start building your multifamily strategy today so deals flow to you as competition thins

    And So Much More!

  • Cash flow is necessary when investing in rental properties. Cash flow grants you, the real estate investor, enough leeway to pay for your mortgage and taxes, and save up a healthy safety reserve for future renovations. For new real estate investors, cash flow is probably the single most important metric they look at, but it’s not always a great predictor of a good investment. If you want to truly build wealth, generate passive income, and retire early (or rich), start looking at the metrics David Greene is talking about.

    Welcome back to another episode of Seeing Greene. Our cash flow creator, expert agent, and investor with decades of experience, David Greene, is back to answer your most asked questions. In this episode, we’re touching on topics like when to focus less on work and focus more on real estate investing, why low cash flow isn’t always a bad thing, what happens when an appraisal misses the mark, creatively financing home renovations, and how much every investor should have in safety reserves. 

    Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot! 

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Why buying real estate in sprints is normal and when to lay off investing

    The many metrics outside of cash flow that point to a great rental property

    What to do when an appraisal comes back low and how to challenge an appraisal 

    The different ways to finance a home renovation and which will pave the way for more passive income

    How much to keep in safety reserves if you’re buying your first rental property

  • Multifamily investing is a bit different than other types of residential real estate investing. When the economy begins to shift, and a recession is looming, multifamily real estate tends to drop in price. But, at the same time, more renters need a place to stay, or more importantly, an affordable place to stay, making multifamily apartments their go-to option. If apartment investing has ever interested you before, Jake Stenziano and Gino Barbaro make a strong argument why now may be the perfect time to get into the industry.

    If you’re feeling deja vu, don’t worry, Jake and Gino have been on the BiggerPockets Podcast multiple times before. Each time they come on they bring new lessons, new deals, and a lot more units under their belt. Only a decade or so ago, Jake and Gino were busting their humps working at jobs and businesses that didn’t fulfill them. It took them a year and a half to buy their first deal, and now, they’re sitting on $175M worth of multifamily. That’s quite a lot of deals in just a decade.

    Jake and Gino drop some gems in this episode, specifically on why 2022 may be a smart time to start investing, how to develop your “buy right” criteria, and preparing your exit strategies so you can build wealth, not just get rich once. They’ve learned a lot of multifamily investing lessons the hard way, so next time you’re presented with a killer deal, you don’t have to double down on their mistakes.

    In This Episode We Cover:

    Why you DON’T need to raise outside money to tackle big multifamily deals

    How to hire the right people and get employees invested in your properties (literally)

    The “buy right” framework and three pillars of real estate that every investor must understand

    Why exit strategies are the most crucial part of investing and how to define yours

    Managing properties the right way and how good property management can make or break a deal

    The “conveyor belt” acquisition system that will fly deals your way (even when you’re not working)

    And So Much More!

  • Everyone wonders how the rich avoid taxes. To most Americans, it seems like there is some big loophole that only the mega-wealthy know about, leaving average workers strapped with a large tax bill. Are the ultra-wealthy cheating the tax code, or are they onto something that everyday Americans simply don’t know about? Tom Wheelwright, author of Tax-Free Wealth and Rich Dad’s (Robert Kiyosaki) CPA is here to tell you how to take advantage of these big tax deductions that mystify small-time investors.

    If you’re already investing in real estate, you’ll know that the tax deductions can be plentiful. You get mortgage interest, depreciation, maintenance, and insurance write-offs. But, even bigger than those, are bonus depreciation and cost segregation, which aren’t complicated tax strategies and can help almost any investor reduce their tax bill significantly. So what can an average investor like you do to get started saving on taxes?

    Tom walks through the 2022 tax deductions that are decreasing this year, which to take advantage of immediately, how to find the right CPA for you, and which write-offs you may be missing. These tips could reduce your taxes by a significant amount, freeing up much more of your capital for future real estate deals!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    The disappearing tax deductions that every investor should take advantage of

  • Look up “how to retire early” online and you’ll see some common prescriptions. You’ll hear investors talk about rental properties and index funds more than other options. This is for good reason since even as real estate investors there are ways we can go beyond the scope of buying rentals to amplify our wealth and set ourselves up for early retirement. This is also the exact question that one of our guests asks on this episode of Seeing Greene.

    If you’ve ever wondered what you should do with your rental property profits after you’ve paid all your bills, whether or not to flip homes in 2022’s housing market, or simply how to get less nervous on the phone, then you’re in the right place. David Greene, host of The BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast, runs through a series of different Q&A style submissions from new investors, experienced investors, real estate agents, and everyone in between.

    Want to ask David a question? If so, submit your question here so David can answer it on the next episode of Seeing Greene. Hop on the BiggerPockets forums and ask other investors their take, or follow David on Instagram to see when he’s going live so you can hop on a live Q&A and get your question answered on the spot!

    In This Episode We Cover:

    How to estimate rents on a potential income property and which room count brings in the most money

    How to find an investor-friendly agent who will give you the local contacts you need

    Whether to sell a rental property or keep it and cash-on-cash return vs return on equity

    Live in flips and why flipping houses has gotten so much harder in 2022

    Turnkey rental companies and whether or not to use one when investing from abroad

    How to retire earlier by “amplifying” your rental property’s cash flow

    And So Much More!
