The Multifamily property marketplace is HOT.  Rick Bean with Rose City Commercial Real Estate explains what it takes to compete in a compete and How to find deals in a HOT Market. Return on investment is the goal of every investor.  The stock market is not providing the desired rate of return, so where do investors go?  Foreign markets are not providing a positive return, so where do foreign investors go?   They go to the US Multifamily Marketplace SUBSCRIBE        iTunes        Stitcher Since the collapse of the mortgage market in 2008, demand for apartments has risen sharply.  Projections show more of the same for the next couple of years. The collapse of the mortgage market forced homeowners who lost their home into the renters market.  Some potential buyers have decided they are no longer interested in being burdened by a mortgage, or do not qualify for a bank mortgage to buy a single family home. How to Find Deals in a HOT Market Buyers wanting more options to chose from are turning to working with Commercial Real Estate Brokers that look for Off Market Properties. Additional tactics used by aggressive Buyers in order to gain an advantage with Sellers is to make the deposit go hard right away.

Insurance is a grudge purchase. What can you do to Win at Insurance? For many insurance buyers, the thought of buying insurance is nothing to look forward to. The process is similar to applying for a loan, answering questions, waiting on the agent or company to provide numbers, and then make a decision to purchase based on nothing you understand.   What are your alternatives to buying insurance? You can “self insure”.   That’s a dicey option.  If you never have a loss, you win.  But, if you have a claim, it could wipe you out.   Another option.   For those with ample means, cash flow and few claims, there is another option. Create your own insurance company! Create a Captive Insurance Company. A Captive Insurance company is a wholly owned subsidiary created to provide insurance to its non-insurance parent company (or companies). Captives are established to meet the risk-management needs of the owners or members. Hale Stewart, author of US Captive Insurance Law, joined me to speak about what a captive is, how it works and who can benefit from it. There are many advantages to proceeding with a captive. A broader contract: the chance to cover exposures that your standard company will not. Easier claims adjustment. Potentially lower insurance costs. Tax advantages provided to insurance companies For more info, join our free webinar and receive a free white paper explaining the benefits of Captive Insurance Companies. https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4858456386013887234.

Profitable Real Estate Investing requires strategy and discipline.   Jake & Gino have grown from zero to $32M portfolio in just three years. Most beginners struggle to get out of the gate.  It took two years of rejection before they landed the first deal, and from there, they have never looked back. Along the way they were methodical, kept notes, learned what not to do, and what worked.  The result is they have developed a system.   Buy Right.Manage Right,Finance Right. In order to Buy Right, you have to know what works for you and be prepared to walk away from the deal.  Every deal. Once you have a the deal, you have to Manage Right.  Make certain the property has curb appeal so that it attracts tenants willing to pay market rents.  This can be as simple as landscaping and paint, keep the grounds picked up and free from trash. Finance Right.  This relies on your ability to actively market your property to local community based lenders.  To do this, you have to be able to present your numbers is the standard format the bank needs in order to evaluate your property and the opportunity, including.   If you want to follow the model that Jake and Gino, a pizza boy and a drug rep, developed to go from zero to a $32 million in in portfolio assets, check out their Wheelbarrow Profits Academy.   http://jakeandgino.com/wheelbarrow-profits-launch-dg/ If you are looking for some direction from experienced investors, I encourage you to get with Jake and Gino.

Retail Malls are being tested, and their survival is at stake.  Retail Malls Change or Die.   Metcalf South was the mall of my youth where I watched the dishwasher with the glass front door wash dishes, Santa arrive by helicopter and where my parents took me to buy every pair of jeans and shoes.   Now this once thriving mall on 45 acres in suburbia Kansas City is dark.  It is listed on the website, DeadMalls.com with hundreds more.  Few states have been spared a closing retail mall.   What happened?  How could such a vibrant central shopping center to a community fail? Greg Lutje, partner at Samuels Yoelin Kantor LLP a Commercial Real Estate attorney joined me to discuss the changing landscape facing retail malls everywhere.   In researching the topic, there are many opinions and factors have contributed.  Is it: Over built retail, simply more places to buy than demand? Decline in numbers of the Middle Class? Technology; the internet? Online retailers, have they replaced the traditional mall? Have the consumer wants changed? People are moving from Suburbs to Urban centers? Q: What does the customer want? A: More than a pair of jeans in a different size.   Not all malls are closed or forgotten.  Some continue to thrive.  What are the successful malls doing to remain relevant? Successful Mall owners have created an “Experiences” for shoppers.   For more go to: www.samuelslaw.com

Most investors can point to a handful of reasons they invest in real estate such as: Cash Flow - The positive cash flow from commercial real estate is a major advantage over owning stocks. .   Tax relief - The ability to defer capital gains through a 1031 exchange is not available in stocks. More Tax relief - Depreciation on commercial real estate works to reduce taxable income.    Leverage; The ability to acquire an appreciating asset with borrowed funds is unmatched in stocks. I spoke with Doug Marshall of Marshall Commercial Funding to discuss some "Not So Common" reasons why Real Estate investing is more advantageous than stocks. Real Estate vs Stocks Three Uncommon Reasons why Real Estate Beats Stocks: The Commercial Real Estate Market is an inefficient market place.  Unlike the stock exchange, where the purchase price is the listed price, Real Estate allows for the buyer to enter into a purchase agreement and a negotiated price.  The buyer may have information that is not known to the seller, or that the seller has not yet acted on.  This can favor the buyer with the ability to increase the property value quickly.CRE owners have direct ability to influence on the outcome of their investments performanceNo more need for retirement calculators.  With Commercial Real Estate you can make a reasonable guess as to how much you’ll need to have accumulated in real estate in order to retire comfortably.  ?
