More About This Show
Jake Stenziano and Gino Barbaro are experts in the world of multi-family real estate investing. Together, they own almost 700 properties. They are the authors of Amazon Best-Seller, Wheelbarrow Profits, and the founders of real estate education website, JakeandGino.com. Jake and Gino are committed to building wealth and passive income through multi-family real estate investing, and on today’s show, they’re sharing their specific, proven strategy.

Jake and Gino have repeatedly implemented a framework for successful investment they explain is best explained as a wheelbarrow. When purchasing an investment, there are three crucial components: buying right, managing right, and financing right. Without two legs and a wheel, a wheelbarrow cannot stand strong. The same is true for an investment, without all components in place; creating wealth is impossible.

The first leg of the wheelbarrow represents buying right. Jake elaborates further, explaining that when you purchase a property, it’s fixed like the back leg of a wheelbarrow. If you overpay for an investment, that can’t be undone. For Jake and Gino, they look specifically for an 8% capitalization rate, and 10% cash-on-cash return.

The second leg of the wheelbarrow comparison is financing right. This means finding the longest-term amortization. Typically, Jake and Gino aim for 25-30 years. They also want their loan term to be at least ten years. Having the correct loan terms in place allows for positive cash flow.

The wheel of the wheelbarrow stands for managing right. It’s an ongoing, never-ending process. Jake and Gino have a three-step repositioning process that allows them to constantly improve their properties, while bringing in a tremendous increase in revenue.

 On today’s episode, Jake and Gino are sharing why they chose to invest in multi-family investment properties, and are explaining in-depth their extensive repositioning process.
