More About This Show
In his experience of raising over $300 million in funding, Victor Menasce has learned exactly what it takes to put together a successful deal. In his book, Magnetic Capital, he outlines the five elements of raising money.

The first element for raising capital lies in cultivating strong relationships. Victor explains that most people will not lend their hard-earned money to just anyone. He recommends building strong relationships in business in order to make the private money partnership effortless.

Victor explains that trust is another vital element in raising money. Both parties must have an alignment of intention, and have the same goals. Trust consists of a whole series of concepts, including trust to execute on a plan and trust to meet commitments.

The third element is results. Most lenders want to see a proven track record. For a new investor, Victor recommends teaming up with a partner who has experience in order to gain knowledge.

The deal also needs to be a compelling opportunity. Victor posits that a great deal will always get funded, so working with mentors is important when selecting deals.

Additionally, alignment is important. Victor explains that all goals must align. Some investors are particular about how long their money is tied up, so it’s important that the goals for the money and the goals for the project are a match.

On today’s show, Victor is sharing even more valuable information about raising private money. You’ll learn about how he got started raising money, and how to get in the right mindset in order to approach lenders.

More About This Show
Thomas Hatley and Jason Motte were college roommates who have always had entrepreneurial spirits. However, they both entered the corporate world after finishing their degrees. They understood the danger of putting all their eggs in one basket, and decided to create financial freedom now instead of at retirement age.

When Jason discovered this podcast, he knew he had to share it with Thomas. The two were already looking for ways to create meaningful cash flow, and when they discovered the power of passive income via real estate, they knew it was an avenue they wanted to pursue together.

Since they had little funds available, they decided to pursue seller financing. They searched high and low for deals that would work for them. After pouring through ads and sending emails, they discovered a duplex that they were interested in.

They purchased the property for $33,500 and a $4000 balloon payment. They inherited their tenants, hired a property management team, and now receive $865 every month from the duplex. Since that first deal, Thomas and Jason have acquired three additional properties, and have no plans of stopping anytime soon!

On today’s show, these new investors are sharing more about their personal journey into the world of real estate investing. Thomas and Jason are a true testament to what can happen if you’re willing to take action! Don’t miss their story on this episode of Investing in Real Estate!

EP151: What is Seller Financing?

Book a call with our team: https://goo.gl/dezwHT

Many prospective investors want to purchase their first property, but simply don’t have the cash to finance a deal. Some investors don’t want to involve their credit score, or have other reservations about using traditional financing. Luckily, seller financing is a fantastic alternative.

On today’s show, Natali and I are sharing our experience with seller-financed properties. We’ll talk about the benefits of using seller financing, how to find and negotiate a seller-financed deal, and more! Don’t miss episode 151 of Investing in Real Estate!

More About This Show
For many real estate investors, the key to success is being creative. For most of us, money is not an unlimited resource, and traditional credit has its own confines. In order to build a robust portfolio, many investors consider seller financing as a viable option.

Seller financing is a great option for any investor that has no money to put down, has a low credit score, or simply wants more flexibility and freedom than the traditional loan structure can provide. Unlike a big name bank, a seller can negotiate terms. It’s a great opportunity for the buyer to invest with little to no money down.

As for the seller, this kind of deal can be beneficial as well. Since seller financing provides a more flexible term, interest rate, and payment schedule, the seller is able to construct a deal that contributes to his or her own financial goals. Not to mention, the seller is able to save on capital gains over time.

When constructed correctly, a seller-financed deal can be mutually beneficial. And for many new investors, it’s a great way to get started without relying on mounds of cash, traditional banks, or credit scores.

On today’s show, Natali and I will delve further into the topic of seller-financed rental properties. We’ll share our personal experience, as well as why this can be a fantastic strategy. It’s all here on episode 151 of Investing in Real Estate!

EP143: Reaching the Top of the Real Estate Mountain - Interview with Joel Block

When it comes down to making a real estate deal, money is the most important piece of the puzzle. Today’s guest, Joel Block is here to share a higher-level way of looking at your money. This strategy is what Joel calls "reaching the top of the real estate mountain!" 

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, Joel is sharing his in-depth knowledge into the world of syndication. He’s sharing details about the private placement business, changing the psyche around money, and much more! Please join us on episode 143 of Investing in Real Estate!

More About This Show
Joel Block is a long-time venture capitalist, and a hedge fund manager who speaks at conferences around the country informing audiences about raising capital. Joel also holds an incredible conference twice a year to assist investors in learning how to syndicate properties.

He explains that he got into syndication shortly after leaving an unfulfilling accounting position. He teamed up with a partner, and pieced together his first deal. Joel and his partner purchased a 12-unit apartment by raising capital from 22 different doctors.

That’s exactly how syndication works—an investment is divided into shares of stock. The capital is placed in an LLC, and the LLC purchases the real estate investment. Then each investor owns a fraction of the real estate.

This is an advanced way to construct a deal, because there is no lending involved. The lenders always receive their return first. Then, if the deal was done correctly and wisely, the participants will receive a return.

On today’s show, Joel is sharing more about how to get started with syndication, and why it os so effective in real estate. He’ll also supply all the details about his upcoming symposium. Don’t miss episode 143!

EP132: The Fed Just Increased Rates Again

The Federal Reserve just announced yet another raise in interest rates. Higher rates will make purchasing homes harder and more expensive for homebuyers, but what does this mean for real estate investors?

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m discussing the three main ways that an interest rate hike directly influences real estate prices. I’ll share how to analyze how the rate will affect your purchases, and how investors can prepare for the future. Don’t miss it!

More About This Show
If you’re planning to purchase your real estate investments with a conventional mortgage, this newly increased interest rate could be an issue. Your ROI will immediately decrease if you’re paying more for a mortgage. That’s why cash is king; if you’re paying with cash, you’ll be unaffected by interest rates.

Additionally, banks aren’t as likely to lend when the rates are up. Usually, banks trade money around, but when rates rise their cash flow is more restricted. As an investor, this is your opportunity to swoop in with cash on hand to purchase properties that people are unable to get mortgages for.

Another reason why interest rates affect real estate prices are the basic valuation fundamentals. It changes how much you pay for everything, not just the mortgage.

The underlying theme for investors is: cash is critical in this economic climate! As an investor, if you’re able to pay for your properties with cash, you won’t have to worry about mortgages. That’s exactly what Harry Dent predicted in our interview late last year.

It’s going to become increasingly difficult for new homebuyers to acquire traditional mortgages. Not that we want to champion others’ misfortunes, but as investors there will be an opportunity to purchase homes that others are unable to qualify for IF you have cash on hand.

On today’s show, I’ll dive more deeply into the importance of mortgage rates. I’ll talk about the overall implications on the economy, and why cash is so important for investors. Don’t miss episode 132!
