Speak the language of an investor

Speak the language of an investor

  When investors KNOW that YOU'RE right for THEM, when you speak the language of an investor, everything else falls into place. Think about how much your business would scale if your investors felt at ease trusting you?  The process would run a lot smoother, that's for sure.  For example, take Lisa, an agent from Michigan I met in the Investor-Friendly Agents FB Group when I asked this simple question:  With an immediate reply to the post, she went on about the growing population and increasing rents in West Michigan. She shared employment information, and about the deals she's finding. She spoke my language as an investor.  I sent her a personal DM asking if she had any deals and she messaged me back with a 7 unit that had…

What if cash flow didn’t really matter?

What if cash flow didn’t really matter?

  Just about every investor wants cash flow from their properties right?  Except…the ones who don't.  The reality is, some high-net-worth investors think differently.  In fact, I was recently working with a $100M net worth client whose goal wasn't cash flow at all. I mean when you think about it, financially he's set - why would he need the cash flow anyways? So he was regularly buying houses that were $500,000 and renting them out for $2000. $0 in cash flow - no chance of making any money.  But what he was really doing was building a legacy for his family.   He'd buy high-end properties to attract great tenants, with rents bound to rise. Let the properties go up in value over time. Then, liquidate his portfolio after 5-7 years.…

Changing your tenant can boost cashflow

Changing your tenant can boost cashflow

Ever consider changing tenant? If you're an agent, then you either have, will, or are currently struggling to find deals that meet a 6% cash-on-cash return.  It's not just you, though.  We recently ran a poll and found that 75% of our agent community struggles with the exact same thing. But just because you can't find deals that meet this criteria, doesn't mean they aren't out there.  That's why if you struggle to find deals that make sense, I recommend changing the tenant type you're looking for.  If you only look for long-term tenants, you're missing out on other rental strategies that could bring in even higher cash flow.  Take this property for instance. An agent in Boise, Idaho found this deal that supposedly required an investor to put $130k…
