Key Takeaways:

  • Scaling your business is important, especially if you want to gain more time and financial freedom.
  • When you can make your business into something that’s greater than you, that’s where the magics happens.
  • Alex admits he made a rookie mistake right after the holidays in November.
  • Because Alex took his foot off the gas on the marketing side of things, the year had a slow start.
  • So, you know about scaling up, but sometimes you also need to scale down. Alex explains further.
  • More isn’t always better.

Rank #9: EP374: 45 Rental Properties in 14 Months: Secrets of the BRRRR Strategy to Aggressively Grow Your Rental Portfolio (& Achieve Financial Freedom with David Dodge)

Podcast cover
Read more

David Dodge has 15 years experience in real estate but only found out about wholesaling five years ago! He wished he’d known about this niche sooner. It took him 10 years to acquire 10 properties and he did it the slow/traditional way. Over the last 14 months, he’s aggressively bought 45 houses using the BRRRR method. David breaks down this method and explains step-by-step how he was able to achieve this rapid growth.

Key Takeaways:

  • Who is David and how did he get started in real estate?
  • Wholesaling is a marketing business. Even if you’re not interested in it, you should still learn it because it will teach you the basics of getting directly to the seller!
  • If you focus on learning marketing and sales, you will never starve.
  • How has David been able to add 56 rentals to his portfolio?
  • David only keeps the best for himself.
  • David also uses the BRRRR strategy = Buy, Rehab, Renting, Refinancing, Repeat. He breaks down how he uses this strategy in real life.
  • Of the 56 rentals he’s acquired, 45 of them were acquired in the last 12-14 months.
  • Why does David not want to maximize his leverage?
  • David uses private lenders to help with the purchase and rehab of the properties.
  • Tip: Find a local bank, and develop a great relationship with your banker! Don’t deal with the big guys!
  • Make sure your loan renews, not comes due! David explains the difference.
  • David does a quick recap of his strategy. You need to be ‘all in’ on about 75% of what the house is appraised for.
  • How much on average is David cash flowing on each house?
  • You do not get taxed on creating wealth. You get taxed on income. David explains the difference.
  • David uses a property manager. His primary focus is to acquire, get them ready for rent, and hand them off.

Rank #11: EP202: WARNING - Jeff Watson Discusses Legal Issues ALL Wholesalers Need to Be Aware Of

Podcast cover
Read more

Jeff Watson is an attorney who had an active trial and hearing practice for more than 25 years. Today, Jeff is a nationally-recognized authority regarding regulatory concerns with wholesaling and offers general counsel to the National Real Estate Investors Association as well as advises four different national organizations with a combined membership of over 100,000 investors. On top of all that, he’s been a real estate investor since 1993. Today’s episode isn’t meant to scare you, but to help nudge you in the right direction so that your business does not get on the wrong side of the law!

Key Takeaways:

  • This podcast is not meant to scare you!
  • Who is Jeff and what does he do?
  • What are some of the legal issues wholesalers need to be aware of?
  • All wholesalers need to understand that you’re always acting as a principal. You’re either a buyer or a seller, and that’s it. You’re not a matchmaker.
  • Jeff loves double closes. He explains why.
  • Imagine being able to do fewer deals and make more money. That’s what double closing can do for you.
  • When was the last time you personally sat down and read your own state’s real estate license law particularly in reference to the definition of a real estate broker?
  • Unless you’re a licensed agent, you cannot be doing this activity unless you buy the property yourself and sell it yourself.
  • However, despite this, Jeff does not recommend you become a licensed real estate agent. Why?
  • What mistakes does Jeff see wholesalers make?
  • What’s the best way to market a contract?
  • Why does Jeff absolutely despise co-wholesaling?
  • Jeff remembers going to a real estate/wholesale seminar back in the 80’s and what they were teaching was illegal. The same remains true today. People just aren’t aware of the laws.
  • How many serious cases have occurred due to wholesalers not following the law?
  • How can someone who’s been doing things the wrong way recover and start doing things the right way?
  • Never blow off an investigator.
  • Remember, learn from your mistakes and make corrections to move forward legally.

Rank #17: EP287: My "MasterMission" Experience, and the Message You NEED to Hear!

Podcast cover
Read more

Alex shares some life updates on this week’s podcast. At the beginning of the year, Alex felt like God wasn’t really speaking to him, but after coming back from a mission trip to Guatemala, he realizes what God was saying to him all along. We have so much opportunity in our lives that even on your worst day, it’s someone’s absolute best day.

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s almost March! If you’re not where you want to be, it’s okay; recognize it, learn from it, and move forward!
  • Having a hard time getting rid of the chaos in your mind? Get your body moving.
  • At the end of January, Alex attended a Lifeonaire retreat. It was there where he was inspired to attend a mission trip to Guatemala with some of his mastermind buddies.
  • Alex is here to create an impact, to make the world a better place. And sometimes, he’s not always crystal clear what that looks like.
  • Guatemalans are very grateful and happy people.
  • Over there, when kids turn 10-12 years old, they have to start working.
  • Alex went into a 70 sq. ft. house and it had five to six people living in there. There was no ventilation in there and it was just a dirt floor.
  • We have so much opportunity and yet we take it for granted.
  • Your worst day is somebody’s absolute best day out there.
  • At the beginning of the year, Alex wasn’t really hearing God speak to him.
  • Are you open to hearing and receiving what God/universe/whatever you believe in is giving you?
  • The next voice that you also have to pay attention to is your inner voice.
  • Do you have KPIs for your family?
  • Real leadership and strengths come from showing your weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Don’t ever lose that.
