If you’re a first-time home buyer, now may be one of the best times to get a loan in recent history, according to mortgage advisor Jeff Welgan. With new no-money-down mortgages coming out specifically to help first-time home buyers finally get into a property, you can now buy a house for no money out of pocket, with your entire purchase price and closing costs covered. These 100% financeable loans aren’t a secret, so why don’t most first-time home buyers know about them? In this BiggerNews, we’re diving deep into the best first-time home buyer loans available in 2024, how to pick up your first property for NO MONEY out of pocket, and low-money-down multifamily deals any brand new investor can start buying today. With affordability at nearly forty-year lows, most Americans struggle to save up a down payment, even if they have enough income to qualify for a home loan. This is where 100% financeable loans come in, making it easier than ever to buy your first home. So, who can get approved for these first-time home buyer mortgages, where do you find them, and how do they work? Jeff goes through these programs on the federal and state levels, showing first-time home buyers where to find them, which loans to avoid, and whether or not they can use these loans to buy their next property. Thank you to our sponsor, Rent App: the free and easy way to collect rent.  In This Episode We Cover: How to get 100% financing on your first property (no money down!) Who qualifies for these first-time home buyer loans, and which properties require a down payment The problem with FHA loans and where you should/shouldn’t use them Rate buydowns and why this once valuable tool is no longer being used How to invest in small multifamily with VERY little money down And So Much More!

If there’s one thing that’ll make or break your real estate portfolio, it’s property management. When done correctly, property management can feed you consistent, passive income without the everyday stressors of being a landlord. Whenever you hear people talking about bad tenants, midnight phone calls, or surprise maintenance problems, they’re really talking about property management gone wrong. So, how does a rookie real estate investor, with even just one rental property, start managing the right way so they can scale their portfolio faster?  Amelia McGee and Grace Gudenkauf, authors of The Self-Managing Landlord, did it all wrong initially. They were picking up every tenant phone call, placing every service request, taking rent payments every which way, and here’s the thing—none of it was working. As they scaled their portfolios, things only got more difficult until finally, one day, they stopped and developed a system, and like that, their businesses took off. Now, only a few years into real estate investing, both Amelia and Grace have dozens of rental units to their names and less stress than ever before. How did they do it all WITHOUT hiring everything out to a property manager? In today’s show, they’ll share the self-managing principles they used to explode their rental portfolios while staying sane! And if you’re a new investor or are about to be one, these tips could save you YEARS of headaches! In This Episode We Cover: Why EVERY real estate investor should be self-managing when building their portfolio How to start building your property management “system” that’ll save you HOURS a week What brand new investors NEED to start doing once they have their first property Three apps/software that every real estate investor should have Tenant selection 101 and simple mistakes that could cost you months of rent  How to know it's time to start outsourcing and signs you need some help And So Much More!

Mortgage rates are high, supply is low, and inflation just won’t go away. These market conditions make investing in real estate harder than ever…or so most investors think. The truth? This housing market isn’t all that different from years past, and if you know which moves to make, you can get ahead of all the other investors without them noticing. What do we mean? We’ve got a seasoned investor with over thirty years of rental property experience on the show, ready to share how buying during “high” rates can be a huge advantage. But that’s not all we’re getting into on this BiggerNews episode. We’ve got questions directly from BiggerPockets listeners that we’re throwing at expert investor Kathy Fettke to see what time-tested advice she’d give. First, a listener wants to know why mortgage rates aren’t falling and how to get into the real estate investing game during a time like this. Then, we discuss how investors can save themselves against inflation. With a spike in part-time work, could the American economy be showing signs of weakness? Finally, we answer the question everyone has on their minds: Is it the darn millennials’ fault for causing these high home prices? Want to ask a question for a future BiggerNews episode?

With so many real estate tax write-offs, it’s no wonder that CPA Brandon Hall says rental real estate is one of the most tax-advantaged assets on the planet. But, even with so much free-flowing information on how to pay less to Uncle Sam, most real estate investors are missing out on a MASSIVE tax deduction that could be saving them thousands, if not tens of thousands, on their tax bill.

The NAR lawsuit changed the real estate industry overnight. Just like that, buyer’s agents were no longer getting their standard three percent commission, and many investors began imagining what buying and selling homes would be like without realtors. But is this massive NAR settlement as dramatic as the headlines are making it out to be? Is there really an agent exodus on the horizon, or is this just a way for the bad agents to exit the industry quickly? We brought on a panel of top investor-friendly agents to find out. Joining us are four agents from across the nation: Avery Carl, Craig Curelop, Juliet Lalouel, and Mike Savegnago. All of these agents are affected by the recent NAR lawsuit settlement, but they don’t seem so shaken up. For many of these agents, this lawsuit simply thinned the competition, putting the expert agents back on top while showing the less-than agents the door. Plus, after the recent deals they’ve done, they’re not too concerned about a lack of buyer’s agent fees. Today, we’re asking each of them their thoughts on the changes to the NAR’s rules, how this will affect buying and selling homes, what this means for real estate agent commissions, and what agents should do NOW to get ahead of the game. Plus, since our agent panel is all investors as well, they give some crucial advice on finding an agent in your area that will help you build your real estate portfolio even bigger. In This Episode We Cover: The NAR lawsuit explained and what it means for real estate agent commissions A “huge exit of agents” and how this could change the real estate industry forever What to do when a seller offers you or your buyer’s agent a zero-percent commission What real estate agents need to start doing NOW to ensure they still get paid The key signs of an investor-friendly agent that any landlord should be looking for Massive downsides of buying or selling without an agent (it will cost you…) And So Much More!

In just four years, Dylan Osmon went from having no job, barely any money, and no real estate investing experience to owning over one hundred rental units. How’d he do it so quickly? Before we answer that, we’re going to make this a little more impressive. Dylan isn’t buying in the big cities with tons of inventory going on the market every week—he’s been buying in tiny towns that you and almost everyone else listening to this have never heard of. And he may have struck gold by doing so. Dylan acquired his first investment property right before the lockdowns. Then, after closing, he quickly realized that this was the worst rental property he could have bought. It had everything—low rents, tenants who never paid, and, to top it off, a cesspool of human waste in the crawlspace—everything you need for a deal gone wrong. He quickly got control of this nightmare rental, flipping it and walking away unscathed. But now, he had to start back from square one, this time with new knowledge. Over the next few years, Dylan made it his mission to build multiple income streams, so every dollar he made went into new deals.

Housing inventory has shot up over twenty percent year-over-year. So, are our low inventory struggles finally behind us? During the low interest rate days, housing inventory couldn’t keep up with demand. Within days of posting a listing, properties had already gone under contract, and buyers could no longer bid. But now, with higher interest rates, we’re finally starting to see a return to “normal,” but a rate cut could take us back to scarce inventory in an instant. So, is now the time to buy? Mike Simonsen from Altos Research joins us on this BiggerNews episode to give an update on housing inventory. Mike’s team tracks every home for sale in the country every single week and has been doing so for almost two decades. Today, he gives us the most recent data on homes for sale, why inventory is rising, the states that are seeing the most inventory hit the market, and whether or not we can expect to return to pre-pandemic inventory levels. Plus, for those debating waiting it out for lower mortgage rates, Mike shares exactly how rates will affect housing inventory and why waiting could throw you back into the bidding wars once rates drop again. Mike even discusses the data behind price cuts and when you can expect sellers to start accepting lower bids.  In This Episode We Cover: A housing inventory update and why more inventory is finally starting to hit the market What happens to housing inventory if interest rates fall or rise Florida, Texas, and other southern states that are seeing a surge in housing inventory  Why most investors are wrong about price cuts What must happen if we’re to see inventory rise back to pre-pandemic levels The one thing buyers and sellers should know if they’re waiting for rates to fall  And So Much More!

Feeling scared to do your first or next real estate deal? Even if everything goes wrong, you may still be in a better position than Ayesha and Kevan Shelton were just a few years ago. After quitting their jobs to become full-time real estate investors, Ayesha and Kevan found themselves staring at a $300,000 loss. Their credit was ruined, their life savings drained, and most of their partners walked away, never to return. Ayesha and Kevan did the right thing, paying back every investor who funded their failed house flips, but it came at a cost. With a baby on the way, Ayesha and Kevan were debating bankruptcy to get some relief from the massive financial pressure they were under. But some wise investors told them they had it in them to rebuild their wealth—and that’s precisely what they did. In today’s incredible investor story, you’ll hear about how this power couple pivoted to turn their business around and began investing in new build construction projects. Now, five years later, they’ve built sixty homes, developed their own communities, and created true wealth out of nothing. The best part? These new construction homes are affordable housing, helping solve the inventory crisis we’re currently facing and giving those that truly need it safe, affordable, quality homes to live in. And if Ayesha and Kevan can do it starting from negative, you can too, even if you’re starting from zero! In This Episode We Cover: How Ayesha and Kevan turned a $300K loss into a massively successful business  Why you always (ALWAYS!) pay back the investors you’ve borrowed from Affordable housing 101 and how to get discounted land deals for your next new construction project How to find the “path of progress” of where homes will appreciate in your area Scaling your business with new construction homes instead of flipping houses Private money, hard money, and other creative financing methods to use when banks WON’T fund your deals And So Much More!

When can you step back and let the hard work and grind pay off so you can spend more time with your family, spouse, children, and loved ones?

A young house hacker wants to know the best plan for his property after he moves out: rent by the room, turn it into a long-term rental, or go the short-term rental route. Finally, a homeowner with some sizable equity but no extra money asks if she should sell her low-rate primary residence and exchange it for some investment properties.  Want to ask David a question?

A bombshell NAR settlement could bring wide-sweeping changes to the housing market. After a snowball of NAR lawsuits, the realtor association agreed to settle for a whopping $418 million and make critical changes to how real estate agent commissions are paid and how competition can be upheld. This significantly impacts anyone buying or selling a home and has life-changing effects for every real estate agent and realtor in the country. The New York Times’ Debra Kamin joins us to break the story. Debra breaks down the enormous legal loss that NAR (National Association of Realtors) suffered last week and the impacts it will have on the housing market. First, we discuss the new agent commission rules, which may break the standard six percent fee that realtors are used to taking. These commissions are real estate agents’ livelihoods, and a new model that supports lower commissions could force many agents to leave the industry entirely.  We’ll also touch on the turbulent times NAR has faced recently, from sexual harassment scandals to changing leadership and, now, a massive settlement that could lose them more than half of their members. Will a new type of real estate agent form from the ashes of this century-old model? Or, could a brand-new way of buying and selling homes transform the housing market? Stay with us; we’ll give you the entire scoop. In This Episode We Cover: NAR’s massive settlement creating ripple effects across the real estate market  The new real estate agent commission rules that could shock an entire industry  Changes to the multiple listing service (MLS) that may open the market up to new competition  The future of buyer’s agents and whether or not they’ll remain a critical component to buying a home  Sexual harassment scandals, turbulent leadership, and recent NAR struggles  What the future of using a real estate agent could look like  And So Much More!

I love bigger pockets, but this was terrible. One long ad for pro memberships, and the mock pitch was cringe worthy.

how did she finance all of the deals. I heard Brrrr method but did she just roll from o e to the next for all of them? This is where I am stuck. I have 2 buildings/3 doors. I want to scale, but I don't have the cash for downpayments. Technically I can refinance both buildings, but it would not be enough for a downpayment for a third building.

The scaling of projects of space organizations is especially positively perceived with the announcement of the creation of new jobs https://orbitaltoday.com/2023/03/31/orbex-under-fire-as-danish-jobs-rise/ After the start of the operation of a new production, compliance of the declared obligations to create jobs does not always correspond to reality.

Commercial real estate often offers more financial rewards than residential real estate, such as apartment rentals, but of course also comes with some risks. I advise you to consider in more detail the options here https://www.aimsapacreit.com/10-changi-south-lane.html

Started trying offer below ask, no one has even given a counter offer. so I am guessing the offers were offensive. The last offer we put in was above asking, and we still got beat out. I was trying to follow advice from this podcast but I am confused becausewhat i am seeing doesn't match what i am hearing online. Also, properties are moving really fast, going contingent in one or two days, while I am still running numbers. I thought the RE market was slowing down. I am making offers in OBX, NC and North Shore in MA.
