Rookie Reply: The 1% Rule, Turnkey Rentals, and Escrow Accounts Explained

Description

Is the 1% rule in real estate still relevant? Who shouldn’t be buying turnkey rentals? And why is an escrow account favorable for scaling real estate investors? All these questions and more are coming up in this Rookie Reply.

We’re back at BPCon 2022, and joining us is fellow investor and turnkey operator, Zach Lemaster. You may have heard Zach’s episode on the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast or maybe you’ve used his turnkey company, Rent to Retirement, before!

Zach helps us answer an array of questions, some from semi-passive turnkey investors and some from active investors. We touch on investor lines of credit and how to secure them, the 1% rule’s relevance in 2022, whether or not to get preapproved before finding a deal, buying off-market, and much more! Zach also poses three questions every investor should ask BEFORE investing in turnkey rentals.

If you want Ashley and Tony to answer a real estate question, you can post in the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group! Or, call us at the Rookie Request Line (1-888-5-ROOKIE).
