EP074: How to Earn a Passive Income Through Crowdfunded Real Estate Investing - Interview with Sterling White and Jacob Blackett of Holdfolio

Buy and hold real estate comes in many shapes and forms, many of which we’ve presented here on the podcast. Today, we’re talking about how you can invest in a portfolio of properties simultaneously. This strategy limits overall liability, and allows for consistent, passive income.

Here to share how you can earn a passive income through a portfolio investment are Sterling White and Jacob Blackett. Sterling and Jacob are the founders of Holdfolio, a company that connects investors with a collection of properties in a safe and effective way. Together, they have invested in over 500 investment properties, and on this episode of Investing in Real Estate, they’re sharing their successful investment strategy.

More About This Show
Sterling and Jacob aim to purchase ten single-family investment properties every month. Currently, their operations are located exclusively in Indianapolis, IN. They seek out older homes in distressed condition, and create value through renovation and remodeling.

Holdfolio allows for investors to stake a claim in the investment properties that Sterling and Jacob already own, free and clear. The investments are secured and managed online. Holdfolio ensures that investors understand and are comfortable with each and every investment. Additionally, this strategy allows for novice investors to partner with successful, full-time real estate investors. 

Because the properties that Sterling and Jacob purchase have equity built in, as well as a double-digit cash-on-cash return, real estate appreciation is a non-factor. They state because they purchase wisely, their model isn’t dependent on appreciation. Their properties produce a cash flow regardless of real estate appreciation.

But the importance is on buying right! They aggregate three pieces of criteria for buying right: purchasing a property with equity, the ability to attract stable, quality tenants, and the overall outlook for the neighborhood.

On today’s show, Sterling and Jacob are sharing their insight into the world of crowdfunded real estate investing. We’ll discuss their experience with property management teams, as well as the types of renovations they perform on their investment properties. Also, Sterling and Jacob will explain why buy and hold real estate works with their platform, and we’ll discuss the future of the real estate market.
