Podcast

Each week I’ll show you what you need to do to build your own successful real estate business. Check out last week’s episode below…

TMC #17 – Lease Options vs Owner Financing

Today we’re talking about why we don’t do lease options as a business model. Actually, the only times when we’re doing short-term lease option is when we’re transferring the deal to medium or long-term owner financing. So we want to compare and contrast lease options vs owner financing and explain why we’ve chosen the latter.

What is Covered:

– Pro-lease arguments and why they don’t really work

– When having appreciation is not an advantage at all

– Does it make sense to use depreciation for tax advantage?

– What really happens when the deal goes bad and you’re on lease option

– A potential benefit short-term lease option – double dipping

– The benefits of owner financing:

– There is not that much liability when holding notes as opposed to lease contract

– There’s no vacancy in repair with owner finance model, whereas when you get the house back from a lease you always have to do some repair

–  You get big down payments so the foreclosures don’t hurt you

– Owner financing is highly scalable

–  Con to lease option: from the buyer perspective, you have no control

– Con to owner financing: it doesn’t seem real at first until you cash out the first time

So have a think about these arguments, and email us at support@bradsmotherman.com if you have a question you’d like answered on one of the following Tuesdays.

TMC #16 -What the Current Market ’Correction’ is Teaching Us

We notice there is a sense of fear taking over the current market and expanding into real estate. Yes, it may be a tough market but the reality is that the number of households interested in becoming homeowners remains high. If you remain focused on what matters, this challenging market has a silver lining for you.

What We Cover:

– Announcements: Free Support Calls + Stinky House Challenge!

– The asset classes that are currently not doing very well (Bitcoin, etc.)

– Fear sells and how to avoid sloppy buying

– The game will change but it doesn’t mean there is no game

– Why we are now seeing adjustable rate mortgages

– Is it possible to have major ‘corrections’ in real estate?

– Home ownership is not going away but we will see some changes

The current market trigger is no doubt difficult. However, a crash market is not necessarily a bad thing for everyone. We can’t be scared of change because with every change comes an opportunity and we have to learn to adapt and to be excited about what’s to come.

TMC #15 – Mentor-Mentee Relationships: Why They Matter

Mentorship is a process that develops naturally when a mentee is found by a mentor or vice versa. Mentors often make a huge impact without even realizing it or trying, and the experience of having this kind of relationship is utterly rewarding. So today we’ll discuss the relevance of mentor-mentee relationships in building a career in real estate.

What We Cover:

– Character traits of a mentor

– How to know in which areas of your life you’ll benefit from having a mentor

– How a mentor shortens the learning curve and saves time and costs

– Why sometimes you need to burn the boat to find a way to get to the shore.

– How Mentor-Mentee relationship increases vision and goals

– Mentor-mentee relationship is a two-way street

A great mentor provides valuable insights not just about the market and industry, but also about how you can have long-term success. You get feedback from a person who has the context and you just need to trust the process. So go out there and find your mentor.

TMC #14 – The 5 Big Motivators: Tired Landlords

This is the last of the big 5 motivators that we cover in this series. In our deals, we see that being a tied landlord is usually coupled with one of the other motivators such as preforclosure or inheritance. Though the lowest amount of purchases comes from this motivator, it can still be very powerful in your transactions, and today you’ll find out why.

What We Cover:

– What a professional tenant is

– In what kind of situations you deal with tired landlords

– What the house means to a landlord and what emotions are tied into the deal

– Examples of transactions we had with tired landlords

– Why it’s good to have a young mentor if you are starting in real estate business at the age 50+

Although you probably won’t run into tired landlords that often in your business, beware that some of your best-term deals will come from them. So keep your eyes open, stay curious and keep learning!

May 31, 2022

This week, we are continuing with another motivator from the Big 5 Series: Inheritance. The process for this one is not easy and requires a lot of patience. In some cases, there are contingencies that are not always in the script, so you need to keep a level head and take time to analyze your best course of action.

What We Cover:

– Deals of the Day

– Emotions involved in inheritance: grief, greed, and guilt

– Helping should be a priority even when buying the house is not guaranteed

– Dealing with multiple owners of the property

– The least understood aspects of the probate proceedings

– If you don’t have state documents in order, get it done asap

When dealing with inheritance, keep in mind that emotions and tensions can run high within a family. The probate process can also get contentious with multiple owners but don’t get lost in the legal process. As soon as you learn how to navigate it, you’ll find yourself at the hands of highly profitable investments.
