Investing In Real Estate Podcast

Today’s first caller used a Veterans Affairs loan to house hack. What’s the best way for him to grow a strong real estate portfolio? On today’s show, I’m answering this great question, and more!

This Q&A episode features three of your questions on investing with a VA loan, vacancy rates in our rental markets, and my take on the possibility of a global banking crash. As always, I appreciate your thoughtful questions, and I hope you enjoy this episode of Investing in Real Estate!

On this episode you’ll learn: 

  • Tips for investing with a VA loan.
  • What type of vacancy rate you can expect with Morris Invest.
  • The future of banking.
  • And more!

Tips for Investing with a VA Loan

Using a VA loan is a great way for veterans or active duty service members to build out a solid real estate portfolio. You can obtain a VA loan for 0% down, buy a multifamily property, and live in one unit. There are so many benefits to this strategy, including having your living expenses covered. It’s also worth noting that you can take advantage of multiple loans through the VA. Friend of the show, Michael Foster has an amazing book on this topic; it’s called Military House Hacking.

What Type of Vacancy Rate You Can Expect with Morris Invest

For our full-service rental properties, our team does extensive market research. When it comes to vacancies, we look for markets that have a 95-96% occupancy rate. For more information, you can schedule a free call with our team at morrisinvest.com.

The Future of Banking

There’s a lot of talk about a potential banking collapse… personally, I don’t see this happening on a global level. It’s more likely that smaller banks will be gobbled up, like what we saw with Silicon Valley Bank. Ultimately, these things are outside of our control. I find more value in focusing on building wealth and buying smart investments now.
