Millennial Millionaire Real Estate Podcast

In this episode, Jonathan Farber interviews Michele and Bruce Fischer on their journey from fostering a longstanding passion for low income housing to using 12 units as a lifeline for people exiting homelessness. Michele and Bruce are affordable housing buy and hold investors based in Seattle, Washington. In this episode, we get into topics like: determining rents, roadmap to low income housing, structuring deals with family money, and more! Top Takeaways: How to determine rents - 15:00 - 17:00 Focussing on a small area will give you a better intuition for what something would rent for Make it an activity to track all the current rental prices around your area These two strategies combined should give you a solid idea of what something could rent for Understanding Section 8 housing - 20:00 - 22:40 The Housing Choice Program enables low income earners to find housing The main benefit is that you have a reliable income stream from the housing authority The main downsides are tenants losing their vouchers and annual inspections Structuring rental deals with family money - 31:00 - 32:45 A conventional bank loan is a good place to start for private terms If it works for the bank and it fits both parties’ needs, why not use it It’s also not set in stone so don’t be afraid you can’t “refinance” later Social Links: biggerpockets.com/users/fischem Connect With The host, Jonathan Farber Here!
