How to Get Your First Deal—Real Estate Investing Made Simple with Grant Cardone...Here are 4 things you will need to do to get your 1st deal in real estate:

1. Find a deal— People think it’s easy getting into real estate but it’s not. It takes reading report after report. You have to find a deal and that’s harder than people think.

2. Analyze it—Do you know what to look for in a deal? Do you know the terminology?

3. Finance it— It’s expensive getting a big deal. Buildings with 50 units or more are out of reach for most people. Most can’t get the debt, let alone the down payment for a $30 million-dollar deal. This is probably the biggest problem that scares people away from investing in multi-family

4. Manage it— Every building comes with tenants, termites, and toilets. If you have the money but not the time, if you have a job that you’re making a lot of money with, if you’re the CEO of a company you don’t have the time to work with the tenants, termites, and toilets that come with a property.

You can be a passive investor and not have to worry about finding the deal, analyzing it, funding it, or managing it. Those are the problems I’ve had and the problems you’re going to have if you go at it alone. So I’m going to offer you something.

To qualify for my offer, you need 3 things:
1. You need to be an accredited investor
2. You need to love real estate and be a positive person.

Rank #3: 071: How to Buy Your First Deal with No Money Down

Podcast cover
Read more

Uncle G brings it for free every Monday with captain Ryan. Today on the show Grant advises to not chase your budget. Finances are won on offence. When you don’t have money, you need to get other people’s money. Who’s got your money? Don’t buy deals you wouldn’t look at if you had a bunch of money.

The fact is, we all get stuck finding money no matter how rich you are, so the thing to keep in mind is the deal is what matters, not how much money you have. Most people do deals based on how much money they have. There is no such thing as no money down because you will have to exchange something with them—sooner or later the money will have to come from somewhere. Where can you go to raise money? It’s out there, you just have to find it. Act as a broker and act like you know what you’re doing.

Here are 3 things to ask before going into any deal:

1. Ask a woman to tell you how she felt around the property. Just like when you go into a room, you know how it feels. How does the property feel to you? This is subjective, but ask yourself this.

2. Go over the numbers, the T12. This is objective. Do the numbers add up and make sense?

3. Go look at worst case scenario. Go look at the worst year ever. Will it still break even if another 2008 happens?

There’s been some massive swings of instability in the stock market. I’ve got enough drama in my life. I don’t need it with my money. Little deals produce little cash. Little deals will get hurt when the market corrects. All the foreclosures were small deals: 2, 6, 8 , 10, and 12 units. What’s the problem with these deals? They cannot cash flow. It’s back to termites, tenants, and toilets. I tell you the truth—you should be in at least 32 units.

Grant Cardone Real Estate: Are you ready to get involved in real estate? There are 3 principles you need to know and apply to be successful in this game:

1) Never rely on one thing of anything

2) Don’t buy based on your budget

3) Don’t buy less than 16 units

Most people do the opposite of all 3—they rely on 1 single family home that was bought based upon their “budget” and they never would even consider buying 16 of anything. This comes from small think and it leads to small money. To get rich you need to take more debt and go big from the get go. For more, listen in to the Real Estate Show every Monday at noon EST.

Rank #9: 057: How to Get a Loan

Podcast cover
Read more

The easier a loan is to get, the less money you will make, the more trapped you are, and the fewer buyers will be there to buy your deal on your exit. There are different types of loans, and the easiest to get is a residential loan, which is 4 units or less and you must live in one of them.

This is better than a home loan. This loan is not just based on your credit, it’s based on income. Commercial loans are more difficult to get.

Here’s what they’re going to look for:

1. They’re going to look at your net worth first.
2. Next, they’ll look at your credit.
3. Finally, they’ll look at your track record, what kind of experience you have.

The most important thing to have is #1. You need net worth to get started. Watch as I take callers today and review their deals so that you too can educate yourself on this business.

Rank #10: 045: Cap Rate for Commercial Real Estate

Podcast cover
Read more

What is CAP Rate? The number one question I get asked is, “What CAP rate do you buy?” but this is the wrong question. One piece of data doesn’t substantiate a deal. Don’t get locked into one term. All the pieces of data matter. You need to feel the deal, meaning, do you want to actually do the deal?

The lower the CAP rate the higher I can sell it for. What’s a good CAP rate? It depends. I would have made a fortune in San Diego 20 years ago buying extremely low CAP rate properties. Think about the whole deal, like how you will exit, not just the current CAP rate. There is a number more important than the CAP rate: 1.25

That’s the Debt Coverage Ratio you want. You want the NOI bigger than the debt—you want a minimum 25% more income than debt.

Rank #11: 036: Multifamily

Podcast cover
Read more

Real estate is the best way to grow wealth. If you want to get super rich, get involved in real estate — but I'm not talking about just any real estate. I recently wrote an article that explained why buying a house is for suckers. A home is not an investment, because it doesn't pay you each month — you have to pay it. It's a liability to me, not an asset. Not only does a house leave you less mobile, it ties up your money so you can't use it for real assets. There are many indications that multi-family apartment investments will continue to be great:

75 million Baby Boomers are headed into retirement

Many of today's apartment complexes may be converted to retirement communities in the future

Many millennials aren't buying homes

It's getting more expensive to build new apartment units

You ready to get involved in Multi-Family? Be sure to watch every Monday at noon EST and let's get you RICH.

Rank #12: 065: Analyzing Cash Flow

Podcast cover
Read more

When you buy a property, you need cash flow. There is a reason why cash is called king. You want big cash flow every month when you make an investment. But how do you analyze the cash flow of a property?

1. Income — VIP parking, laundry…anything that people need and want that you can charge extra for.

2. Expenses — You’re going to have payroll, landscaping, utilities, insurance, repairs, taxes…these are all things that you can’t get rid of.

3. Debt — Principle and interest on the loan.

4. Cash Flow — Are you making any money on the deal or not?

If it’s 1 door rent it, if there are many doors, own it. Time and cash flow = appreciation. If you buy the right property and make the right moves with it, time and cash flow will get you a 2X to 3 X return—guaranteed.

How can you find a good deal in real estate?! Understand the game. You’ve got to be looking everyday, and if you’re not making time to look every day you’re not committed. I get a lot of questions coming in saying, “How do you know it’s a good deal?” and so what I do is I actually build a spreadsheet so I know everything that’s on the market. It’s called a pipeline, so I have 20 properties in St. Lucie and I know everything about those deals so I know how much they’re going for, how much they sold for, how much they rent for, and how much they ran for.

Rank #15: 056: How to Make Big Money on Little Deals

Podcast cover
Read more
If you’re going to do small deals, change your goal. Get in, fix the deal, and find a buyer so that you flip the deal, and keep flipping until you have enough cash for 32 units. If you buy a 4-unit deal, the goal is to improve the property and increase the rents so that the cash returns are better and you can sell the place higher. This is multi-family apartment flipping. Don’t stay in a 4-unit deal, you might make $600 a month, but it’s not worth the headache, you should just get better at the job you have if you need $600. If you do the 4-unit deal, you want to flip it. Remember, bigger deals are less risky because you have more doors. If you’re a big hitter, if you make a couple hundred thousand a year or have $1 million in net worth, come and invest with me at www.cardonecapital.com and remember, it’s never about how little you can pay, it’s about how much you know.

Buying a House Vs Investing in Apartments - Real Estate Investing Made Simple: Buying a house is not an investment, but it could be a place to save money. There is a big difference between a saving vehicle and an investment vehicle. Investments pay you every month while you pay into your savings every month, right? So do you want to pay or get paid every month? Most people don’t own their home. The banks own it (your mortgage) and the government owns it (your property taxes). No matter how you look at it, a house is not the best place to put your money. Your parents may tell you otherwise, society and the media will tell you otherwise, but buying a home is simply not a good investment.

What should you be investing your cash in? Are you looking to get rich quick or get rich for sure? You won’t get 2000% returns in real estate like you might in crypto, but you can get 20%. Crypto has a long way to go, but it still goes up and down. The number one question I’m asked, is what do I do with my $2,000 or $5,000? 2k, 5K, 10K are not investments—you need 100K. Think about what you would do with your last $100,000. Stocks and crypto are easy. Anything real is work. Marriage, business, and real estate are real. I work hard for money and I work hard to keep it. Any investment you make should:

A) Increase in value.
B) Protect your initial investment.

I don’t know what Bitcoin is going to do next year, but I know real estate will still retain its value. Bitcoin is not investing, it’s speculating. It would be nice to get rich quick. But I want to get rich for sure.

1. Price
2. Down Payment
3. NOI
4. Cash on Cash

These are the 4 quadrants you need to look at in every real estate deal. One is not more important than the rest, they all tie together to make a deal good or bad.

082: When To Rehab

Podcast cover
Read more

When do you start reinvesting money into a property? Here are 4 rules:

#1 Never do the whole rehab

#2 Do your worst case scenario

#3 Look for 30% return or don’t do it

#4 Leave something for the next guy

Buying Multi-family is not buying real estate—it’s buying a business. Every dollar that you spend, 30 cents should come back to you. If you don’t get a return on investment, why spend the money? Rehab is not about taking shortcuts—it’s about being smart about cutting costs that aren’t needed. Create the illusion you are spending money. What do you need to spend to increase rents? Does it make sense to rehab the whole place? Maybe you can fix things by changing 1 or 2 things. . Bottom line, if you are going to spend money, make sure you will get a return on it.

Do you like drama in your life? I’ve got enough already. I don't want drama with my money. Two mistakes people make after they work hard for years:

1. Never invest
2. Invest in the wrong thing

If the stock exchange collapses or if Bitcoin goes up or down, I get monthly checks. I’m paid to wait while my property value goes up. That’s the certainty that you need with your investments—you need mailbox money. The more scale you get, the more stability you have. Most people can’t buy scale. That’s what Cardone Capital gets you:

1. Scale (More doors is better)
2. Income diversification (a lot of renters paying monthly rent)
3. Middle of the road rental prices

Most people look for salaries but they should be looking for opportunities and the right people. How do you get started? Look at everything. Start looking at apartments. Walk properties!

Podcast cover
Read more

What are the benefits of renting vs. buying? Most people think the benefits of buying a home outweigh the benefits of renting but this is false. Most people never take into account the cost of opportunity lost. It’s almost never better to own. Instead, you should rent what you own. The more doors you have the better.

1. Renting is cheaper.
2. Nobody should own.
3. Even rich people shouldn’t own, although if you’re rich, it doesn’t matter if own—because you’re rich.

Buying leaves you with no mobility. Freedom should be your mantra, not a house. Don’t use the excuse, “Well, I’ve got to live somewhere.” That doesn’t mean you need to buy because you don’t just need to own something, you need cash flow!

Podcast cover
Read more

1. You’re not buying: If you don’t buy, it’s because you don’t know what you’re doing
2. Buying too small: This happens when you become scared thinking that big deals are riskier. This is false, small deals are riskier.
3. Buying on a Budget: don’t be confined to what you can “afford”. Don’t have a budget when you buy, have a budget when you own.
4. Believing the Pro Forma: don’t put significance on a fairy tale.
5. Underestimate expenses: taxes and insurance aren’t fully understood.
6. Not funding Capital costs—roofs, carpets, etc. need to be funded, so set some aside for when you will need it.
7. Over leveraging—borrowing too much money.
8. Under leveraging—not borrowing money.
9. Buying on CAP rates: If you’re only looking at 8 caps, you’ll miss out on good deals that don’t fit your criteria.
10. Not knowing: ignorance is not bliss.

065: Analyzing Cash Flow

Podcast cover
Read more

When you buy a property, you need cash flow. There is a reason why cash is called king. You want big cash flow every month when you make an investment. But how do you analyze the cash flow of a property?

1. Income — VIP parking, laundry…anything that people need and want that you can charge extra for.

2. Expenses — You’re going to have payroll, landscaping, utilities, insurance, repairs, taxes…these are all things that you can’t get rid of.

3. Debt — Principle and interest on the loan.

4. Cash Flow — Are you making any money on the deal or not?

If it’s 1 door rent it, if there are many doors, own it. Time and cash flow = appreciation. If you buy the right property and make the right moves with it, time and cash flow will get you a 2X to 3 X return—guaranteed.

064: The Truth About NOI

Podcast cover
Read more

The NOI is Net Operating Income. You have income, expenses, and then you have NOI. 5 units and above are dependent on NOI. It’s what the price is based off of, what the banks look at, and what the cap rate is made from. To determine the NOI you take Gross income minus expenses = NOI. The higher the NOI the more cash flow it’s going to produce. 3 questions to ask in multi-family:

1. How much will you pay for the property?
2. How much will it operate for?
3. How much can you sell it for when you exit?

You can make money with any of these three ways, but ideally all three. Keep in mind that as soon as something comes on the market and it becomes a good deal with a good NOI, you often have over 10 or more buyers coming in immediately. Loopnet is the garbage dump for properties that aren’t selling. As an example, there is a deal for 14 units in Athens, Georgia. It costs 750K so you’d put 190K down and finance 460K. It’s 70% occupied. The NOI is 45K and the debt would be 32K annually. That means you’d basically be putting 190K at risk to make $1300 a month. That deal probably isn’t worth it! The bottom line is you have to know what you are doing with any investment.
