Interest rates are going up

Interest rates are going up

    When you're growing as an agent, no two days are the same and interest rates help that. Because the real estate market is never static. Think about it: interest rates alone keep agents, buyers, and sellers on their toes. As we kickstart 2022, interest rates are suspected of going up - shocker! One thing most agents aren't looking forward to is having those difficult conversations with clients. Keep in mind that interest rates are something you can't control. Don't be discouraged, though. Despite the fact that the residential market is slowing down, investors' desire to buy investment properties is increasing. Haven't had a chance to go all-in on working with investors? 2022 could be your year, Dario.

How I built a 40$ million portfolio

How I built a 40$ million portfolio

  What it really takes to build a $40M portfolio   There's one crucial thing that holds back most talented agents from scaling their income and building a massive portfolio. And it doesn't involve any kind of "lead generation hacks" or your ability to close on deals.  Want to know what it is?  Passive income.  Did you really think I built a $40M portfolio on closing deals as an agent alone?  Truth is, if you don't start investing, you'll only make money when you actively participate in your business. Always trading time for money.  On the flip side, thanks to my real estate portfolio, I get to take tax-free profits from refinances - which I use to invest in even more passive income streams. If you've struggled to scale your…

Start investing in 2022

  Start investing in 2022   Being an agent is all about not being afraid to adapt. If there's anything we've learned over the last two years, it's that the unexpected happens - and agents that can pivot and thrive in any environment have nothing but upside.  Sometimes we need to adapt when a promising deal falls through or when a niche market doesn't work in our favor.  As we head into 2022, remember this - the ability to pivot and quickly change course is one of the most important skills an agent can cultivate.  Want to practice your ability to adapt and make pivots?

No deals in your market? Do this.

No deals in your market? Do this.

    Are you struggling to find deals that make "sense" in your market? Some agents would love to close more investment properties, but in high cost of living areas, most deals are negative cash flow even after putting 20-25% down. Not to mention these areas become less desirable to own in with the high barrier to entry and competitive marketplace. With negative cash flow, low CAP rates, and no way to change the market, what's an agent to do?  Refer clients looking for higher cap rates and properties that actually produce a cash-on-cash return to investor agents in other markets. Yes, you read that correctly.  Send your investor client to another investor agent in a different, more investor-friendly market.  By establishing a referral relationship (for a referral fee) with…
