Ask The Guys - Getting Started, Paying Off Debt, and Selling to Your Tenant
55:54
How to get started investing is one of the most common questions we're asked. So no surprise it comes up again in this edition of Ask The Guys. Of course, the answer depends on where you're at, where you want to go, what you have to work with, and what's happening in the marketplace at the time. So even though the question repeats, the answer is seldom the same. Another popular question is about the use of debt. With interest rates at record lows, but growing concerns over student and consumer debt, there's a debate about whether it's a good idea to pay off debt BEFORE you start investing...or if it makes sense to get started anyway. We’ll tell you what we think. We also address the question of when and how to consider selling your investment property to your current tenant.

Bulls, Bears and a Broader Perspective from Three Big Brains
51:21
Broadcasting from the 41st annual New Orleans Investment Conference, we sit down to chat with Mark Skousen, Peter Schiff and Brien Lundin. Mark Skousen has been named one of the top 20 living economists. He's been writing a successful stock investing newsletter for nearly four decades. And he's a bull. Peter Schiff is a money manager, a multi-time best-selling author, and he famously warned a skeptical world about the 2008 financial crisis...in 2006. He says nothing's fundamentally fixed. In fact, Peter says the next crash will be even bigger than the last one. Some say he’s a bear. Brien Lundin is an expert in gold. He's the producer of the New Orleans Investment Conference and the publisher of a very popular newsletter on precious metal investing. Gold is an alternative to dollars as a store of liquid value. And the gold helps us understand what’s happening with the dollar. So even those you don’t hold gold can benefit from watching it. None of these guys are real estate investors. So they don't look at the world with a real estate bias. We like to visit with them because they help us discover blind spots we might have when we look at real estate. After four days in New Orleans, all our brain cells were fired up. So listen in as we talk about interest rates, the dollar, real estate, gold and what the future holds.

Fed or Foe - Two Valid Views on the Federal Reserve
58:49
Former Federal Reserve chair Ben Bernanke is taking a victory lap and promoting his new book, The Courage to Act. Meanwhile, ex- Congressman and multi-time Presidential candidate Ron Paul is a well-known long-time critic of the Fed. One thing's for sure - The Fed is the most powerful financial force on the planet. Their decisions affect interest rates, economic activity, investment activity and the price of every product, commodity or service worldwide. Paper asset investors hang on every word the Fed utters...and real estate investors should pay close attention too. Both Ben Bernanke and Ron Paul appeared at separate events in separate cities within days of each other. So The Real Estate Guys decided to split up and cover both. Robert was in Dallas to hear Ron Paul. Russ headed to San Francisco is listen to Ben Bernanke. In this episode we compare notes and reflect on what we heard and how it affects real estate investors.

51:34
Most people invest in real estate for building wealth to enjoy then pass on to their family. But because of poor or little planning, some investors lose huge chunks of their assets to lawsuits and taxation. So in an age of hackers, surveillance and money hungry governments, it's never been more important to structure your holdings for maximum privacy, protection and tax mitigation.

Today, it's becoming more common for investors to use global strategies to build and protect wealth, minimize taxes and maximize privacy. Because the easier it is for a predator to find your wealth and make a claim on it, the more likely you are to come under attack.

In Search of Yield - Escape from Wall Street with Private Placements
53:16
Big banks and Wall Street have once again been accused of manipulating a major market.  As if the LIBOR scandal wasn't bad enough, the latest allegations of Treasury market shenanigans highlight the dangers of little fish swimming with big sharks. But with banks paying virtually nothing on savings, and high yielding residential real estate getting harder to find...where's an investor to go for higher yields and real assets? In this episode, attorney Mauricio Rauld talks with us about the growing popularity of private placements.  These are non-publicly traded investments where a sponsor organizes a group of private investors to purchase a single property or a portfolio of properties. These are deals typically too big for Mom & Pop investors to do, so you're not competing for profits with Johnny-come-lately novices who bid prices up.  But they're also too small for the big institutions to bother with, so there's often a "sweet spot" with private placements where deals still make sense...even in a hot market.

The old adage, "Be careful what you wish for!" applies to real estate investing too.

Tracking Trends in Commercial Real Estate and the Broader Economy
56:22
Commercial real estate can be a leading indicator of economic trends.  When businesses are optimistic, they lease space to house more employees and accommodate anticipated growth.  Both are good for landlords. Likewise, when businesses are pessimistic, they don't add space, renew leases or accept rental increases...and they don't hire.  That's not good for landlords. And when things are REALLY bad, businesses just stop paying or move their operations to more affordable, friendlier jurisdictions if they can find them.  This can be good or bad for landlords depending on which side of the migration you're on. In this episode we take a look at commercial real estate trends with one of the biggest brains in the business, Dr. David Lynn.  David has PhD from the London School of Economics, is a prolific author on real estate related topics, and has served as the Chief Investment Strategist for more than one multi-billion dollar real estate investment funds. Speaking of fund managers, we also check in with returning guest Frank Holmes of U.S. Global Investors.  Frank's not a real estate guy, but as the investment strategist for a top performing fund family, Frank pays close attention to the macro trends which affect ALL investors - real estate or otherwise.

The One Skill That Solves Every Problem
53:27
If there were only ONE skill you could have...the one that would help you get everything you want or need out of life...what would it be? Our good friend and mega-successful entrepreneur Ken McElroy says, "Sales solves every problem." Now he was talking about revenue being the answer to cash flow problems. But it got us thinking.  And his statement is far bigger than merely making money. After all, if you've ever tried to win the heart of that special guy or gal, or convince your headstrong child to make better choices in life, or simply want to win the debate about where to go on vacation this year...you've been using sales skills. And if you aren't getting your way more often than not, perhaps your sales skills need some attention. As real estate investors, we're constantly negotiating with buyers and seller, vendors and lenders, tenants and neighbors, and the list goes on and on and on. Even if you delegate to others, you still have to recruit and lead them.  And that comes back to sales skills. So tune in and see if you agree with us that sales is the one skill that solves every problem.

Property Rights - The Foundation of Prosperity
50:23
The ability to own private property is the foundation for building wealth with real estate...or anything else for that matter. But what is “ownership” without control?  And what happens when society’s needs and desires slam up against individual rights? While most people agree an individual homeowner should probably be restricted from building a nuclear waste dump in their backyard in deference to the greater good of the community…should society be able to dictate how much rent landlords should be allowed to charge or who they rent to? It’s a touchy subject and conflicts occur all the time.  That’s where the lawyers get involved. So if you’re going to be a property owner, it’s a good idea to understand the basics of property rights.   In this episode we talk to a couple of lawyers who are involved in conflicts with government over issues of individual rights versus societal controls…some of which are over rights you might not even know exist.

Thinking Outside the Buck - How Savers Can Avoid Being Losers

Our friend Robert Kiyosaki says "Savers are losers".  Does that mean you shouldn't save?  Of course not!As real estate prices rise and lending comes back into the market, real estate investors are going to be realizing profits - whether from sales or refinances.  Plus, the more properties you own, they more cash reserves you hold.In both cases, investors end up sitting on piles of dollars.  While that might sound good (it's better than the alternative), it also presents a challenge.  Even with the tiny taper, the Fed is still effectively printing $75 billion a month.  This has the potential to severely weaken the dollar.  If you have lots of dollars, then that's a problem for you.In this episode, we talk with special guest Anthem Blanchard who helps us understand precious metals as an alternative to dollars for the long term storage of wealth.The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training, perspectives and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Real Asset Investing - Using Hard Assets to Hedge Against a Falling Dollar

The dollar has been on a steady decline since Nixon took it off the gold standard in 1971.  The result is inflation and it's one of the reasons equity happens.Quantitative Easing (QE) is one of the significant contributing factors to a falling dollar.  As China becomes vocal in its calls to abandon the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency, alert investors are preparing their portfolios for a further falling dollar.What does all this mean for real estate investors?  And is there a way to profit?Tune in to this episode as The Guys discuss how real asset investing can help investors both survive and thrive the demise of the dollar.The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training, perspectives and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Government Shutdown and Debt Ceiling Debate - Ramifications for Investors
51:51
Because the US dollar is the reserve currency of the world, what happens in Washington DC and at the Federal Reserve has a big effect on the rest of the world. Likewise, how the world responds to Washington and the Fed affects the strength of the US dollar, which in turn affects interest rates.  And interest rates affect real estate investors.So while the government shutdown is one level of stress, a possible debt default is a potential crisis of much larger proportions.  How will it all play out?  While a traditional default is unlikely, it's very likely the debt ceiling will be raised and the dollar will continue its slow and steady slide.  When you're buying a property and getting a loan for the long term, the long term direction of the dollar creates both challenges and opportunities every real estate investor should be aware of.Listen in as The Guys discuss the government shutdown and the great debt ceiling debate on The Real Estate Guys™ radio show!The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training, perspectives and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Clues in the News - The Market is Speaking...Are You Listening?
50:31
We like to peruse the news looking for clues we can use (and words that rhyme).  Unlike reports that look back on the past, the daily news is talking about what's happening now.  Much more useful.When it comes to real estate market cycles (and pretty much any kind of financial cycle), we've observed that the pendulum swings both ways.  In case you were in a coma, 10 years ago we were on the front end of a huge updward surge in real estate values.  Five years ago, real estate hit a litle bump in the road to riches called the greatest financial disaster since the Great Depression.  Ouch. Of course, as bad as all that was for some people, it's been a buying bonanza for the brave and the bold.  And today the headlines tell us that real estate is coming back across nearly every sector.  In other words, we could be on verge of a surge.What does it all mean?  That's what we discuss on this episode of The Real Estate Guys radio show!The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter!

Searching the Globe for Real Estate, Banking and Privacy
47:11
There’s no place like home.  Or is there?Many investors pick properties in whatever area they happen to live in.  That's a fabulous strategy if you happen to live in a great investment market.We say, “Live where you want to live, but invest where the numbers make sense.”  You may get a lot more bang for your buck by picking markets where prices, rents, market conditions and other factors all produce better profits.But, is it possible that there’s more to investing than simply return on investment?We think so.  Many investors are interested in things like privacy, asset protection, lifestyle, and even personal security.Of course, to put all of these choices in context, it’s important to have a broader perspective.  A great way to see the bigger picture is to travel.  The next best thing is to talk with people who travel.In this episode, we talk with the most interesting “homeless” man you’ll probably never meet. Our guest Simon Black is a “perpetual traveler”.  He spends his time traveling the world, seeking opportunities and sharing his perspectives with people smart enough to listen.An interesting perspective Simon shares are his observations about the relationship between global agriculture and opportunities in real estate investment.  So if you’re hungry for unique investment strategies, this episode will whet your appetite!The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training, perspectives and resources that help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Taking Control of Your Retirement Account - Alternative Capital to Fund Your Real Estate Investing
01:01:02
Finding money to take advantage of the many great bargains in today’s real estate market can be challenging.  Easy cash out loans and the equity they created are largely gone, so investors have been looking for alternatives.  One of the still largely underutilized sources of investment capital on most people’s balance sheets are retirement accounts. This is partly because the traditional financial services industry has had a virtual monopoly in this space and consumers remain somewhat ignorant of their non-traditional options.  Also, many investors don’t consider their retirement funds to be highly manageable and tend to leave them on auto-pilot.  But for those who want to take control of their retirement investments, there are many opportunities to self-direct away from Wall Street and into tangible assets like real estate, physical metals or notes directly tied to real estate both domestically and offshore.  Our guest in this episode is Larry Grossman, who specializes in helping people comply with all the rules regarding self-directed individual retirement accounts.  The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter!

Sharpen Your Pencil and Do the Math - Utilizing the Formulas of Real Estate Investing
55:38
An essential skill for every rental property investor big or small is knowing how to do accurate financial analysis. Without it, how do you know if a property is a good deal, how it compares to other properties; or whether it's a good time to buy, sell or refinance? These are just some of the very important questions a prudent rental property investor needs to know how to find the answers to.  That's why we say “Do the math and the math will tell you what to do!” So the topic of this episode is an overview of the 7 essential formulas of rental property financial analysis.  You'll learn what they are, why they're important and how to use them. Sound scary?  Hey, it's only math.  And it’s not as bad as getting into a property expecting positive cash flow and finding out you’re really negative; or buying into an overheated market, or not getting out while the getting’s good.  Good financial analysis can save you a LOT of heartache! So listen in as The Real Estate Guys™ teach you how to sharpen your pencil and do the math!

The Global Perspective - Where Investors Are Going and Why
49:46
Host Robert Helms travels to Orlando Florida to attend the Encounter of the Americas conference which is hosted by RE/MAX.   This event brings company leaders and agents together from all over the world, with an emphasis on Latin America and the Caribbean.  RE/MAX is one of the biggest brands in real estate brokerage with an especially strong international presence.  So they're able to help us gain a global perspective about where money is flowing in and out of real estate. At the event, Robert sits down with three of the top guys at RE/MAX, each offering unique insights. Larry Oberly is VP of International development, who helps RE/MAX expand its network around the globe.  By collecting data from local offices, monitoring search activity on the RE/MAX website and having high level conversations with international industry leaders, Larry helps us do one of our favorite things:  anticipate where the puck is going.  He has some interesting comments about China that you want to listen to. Next, Robert talks to Ricardo Cardenas who is the RE/MAX VP of Latin America and the Caribbean.  As part of the emerging growth countries known as BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China), Brazil is the dominant economy of Latin America.   But it isn't the only strong economy in the south side of the Western Hemisphere.  And as these nations make more money, they are diligently working on improving their business systems, including how real estate brokerage is done.  RE/MAX is playing a leadership role in that process.   Just as software protocols have made various devices more compatible and easier to use, so will improving business protocols improve access to properties and the ease and security of doing business.  This helps pave the way for more capital to move into those real estate markets. Last, but certainly not least, Robert reconnects with John Turley, our good friend and top broker in the country of Belize.  John visits face to face with real life buyers every day, so while we appreciate the big picture view of high level execs, we like to balance that with street level insights from guys like John.  He brings us up to speed on the latest and greatest about Belize.   We are pleasantly surprised to learn that tourism is substantially up over last year’s record highs.  It’s also interesting that while much of the world experienced severe price declines throughout the recession, Belize did not.  And tourism is actually higher now than before the recession hit.  Very interesting. There’s a lot here, so turn up your volume and enjoy!

Hotel Impossible or Can You Make Money in Lodging and Hospitality?

Hospitality as a business involves using real estate to provide services to leisure and business travelers.  That’s pretty straight forward.  As real estate investors, any time there’s real estate producing cash flow, we’re interested.  And when you do the math based on nightly cash flows, the numbers look pretty good! But this type of real estate investing is very different than your run-of-the-mill rental home, so to avoid ending up with a heartbreak hotel, it's wise to do some homework before investing.   To learn more about the opportunities and the state of the lodging and hospitality industry in the current economy, listen in as The Real Estate Guys sit down with Eric Stoessel, Managing Editor for Lodging Hospitality magazine.   The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Corporate Formalities - Making Sure Your Asset Protection Strategy Really Works
51:12
Most savvy real estate investors know it’s a good idea to put each property in a limited liability company.  More complex strategies include setting up management companies, holding companies and can even include an offshore component. The basic idea is to create a legal entity (corporation, LLC, etc.) or network of entities through which various aspects of your business activities are conducted. And to NEVER do business as a natural person in your own name.   Once you get your mind around it, it’s ALMOST fun putting it all together.  Unfortunately, that’s where it ends for too many investors.  And as you might guess...the devil's in the details. Attorney Garrett Sutton tells us it's important to not only set up a solid structure, but to maintain it properly.  How?  By being careful to observe “corporate formalities”.   To find out what those are and why they're important, listen in as we talk with Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Advisor for Asset Protection, Garrett Sutton.  Discover how to run your own corporation and better protect your real estate empire!

Rhetoric and Reality - A Look at the History of Economic Policy
50:53
The overall health of the US economy affects jobs, incomes and asset values - including investment real estate.  Throughout one of the most hotly contested presidential elections in recent memory, economic policy has been a central theme.   At their convention, the Democrats invoked the spirit (and oration) of ex-President Bill Clinton, while the GOP conjures up visions of Reaganomics. Dire predictions of fiscal cliffs, defaults, hyper-inflation, depression, civil unrest and other calamities fuel the debate.  It seem that everyone has an opinion. But what does history say?   To find out, we sit down with Dr. Jeffrey Hummel, a professor of both economics and history.  We think both are important to providing the context for our investing decisions.

Ask The Guys - Making the Move to More Units
01:02:19
Another exhilarating episode of Ask The Guys!  Robert and Russ answer your questions... With only $20,000 to invest and living overseas, which U.S. markets make sense? Does size matter?  A Minneapolis investor is enjoying great cash flow on smaller properties, but feels the urge to go big.  Should he? A Texas investor is stacking up cash flow properties and wants to retire in Belize in 12 years. Great idea! But should he accelerate the loans or leverage into more properties?  What's the shortest path to "critical mass"? A New York investor wants to know if she should use off the shelf deal analysis software or build her own spreadsheet.  What's a diligent investor to do? A rookie investor from Minnesota is flipping his first deal - a single family home. He wants to know how to build a true investment business with multi-unit buildings. How can he go from forcing equity to collecting passive cash flow? Another New York investor with 12 residential propeties wants to crack the commercial code.  What do the lenders look for?  How can he make the leap? A land owner in New Jersey is looking for investors - presumably to help develop the property.  He's tried investor clubs, bars and dating services (just kidding) with no luck.  Where can he go to find the funding partners he needs? A California couple have an expensive home that's paid for, a bunch of cash in a low rate CD, and a half million in retirements accounts.  They're doing great...but want to own more real estate.  How can they get there from here?

In Search of Goldilocks - Bearing with Government When Investing
54:43
Is government too big, too small or just right?  And what does this have to do with real estate investing? To help us explore this controversial and timely topic, Steve Forbes comes back to share his thoughts, as does first time guest Tom Woods.  In a very polarized election year for the U.S., many people are paying close attention.  As real estate investors, we care about how rules, regulations and even rhetoric affect our investments.   Property taxes, zoning, rent control, eminent domain, environmental controls, fair housing; Fannie, Freddie, FHA and much more are all examples of how government affects real estate.   To win at the game of real estate investing, you need to know the rules.  And when the rules are subject to change (and they are), it’s important to anticipate trends and adjust accordingly.The bottom line which affects your bottom line is that government is in the market to stay, so don’t get frustrated.  Be fascinated. Because, as we learn, confusion in the market creates opportunity for the alert - and tension in the process can actually be a very good thing.The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

The Real Deal - Digging Beneath the Headlines to Exploit Opportunity
53:08
We’re big fans of looking for clues in the news to help us gauge the mood of the market, monitor trends and seek out new opportunities.  But sometimes headlines hide what’s really happening at the street level.  That’s why it’s important to have people in place you can call to get the real scoop.  In this episode, we call on our man in Memphis, Terry Kerr, to help us determine if recent gloomy headlines really reflect the reality of that particular market.  What we discover is that experience, critical mass, local relationships and creativity not only compensate, but can actually help capitalize on the “problems” in any market.  In fact, once again, we find that most problems are really opportunities dressed in work clothes.The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Bonds, Dividends and Wealth Management - How Other Investments Relate to Real Estate
52:35
Special guests include bond market expert Steven McDonald and dividend investing guru and author Mark Lichtenfield from The Oxford Club; and David Conover, President of Wealth Management at Everbank.  Yes, bonds. stocks and banking on a real estate show.  But for good reason!  We’ve been talking forever about the connection between the bond market and the mortgage market - and the powerful influence the bond market has on interest rates and overall availability of capital.  And not just for real estate investors, but job creators (it's better when tenants have jobs) and consumers (businesses do better when people buy stuff).  So even though he’s not a real estate guy, we really bonded with Steve (sorry, we couldn't help ourselves). Mark talks about the important of investing for income.  Of course, he means stocks that pay dividends, but we like the idea.  Buy an equity that cash flows.  Great concept!  That way if inflation goes up, so does your asset value, and if not, well then you just cash flow, flow, flow your boat merrily down the stream. What about David?  Well, banks are basically warehouses where real estate investors store their extra dollars, including the float on their cash flow.  And it’s a big concern when the Fed is diluting the value of those dollars, so what’s an investor to do?  After all, you can’t deploy all your cash all the time, or you might wake up one day with a major liquidity problem.  David tells us how you can dump dollars, still be liquid and have FDIC insurance. More, we learn how a banking executive looks at the current market and what he thinks the future holds. So listen in on the conversation as we talk bonds, dividends and wealth management with Steve McDonald and David Conover.

Bad news for housing can be great news for investors.  But it means seeing a bigger picture and reading between the lines.  For this episode, we do back to back interviews with two special guests.  First, we visit with Gene Epstein, who is the former chief economist for the New York Stock Exchange and current economics editor for Barron’s magazine.   Next, we chat with Anthony Randazzo who is the director of economic research for Reason Foundation.

Saving a Mortgage When Banks Won’t Deal - Leveraging the Law to Stop Foreclosure
50:32
The mortgage crisis still isn’t over for millions of property owners.  There are many resulting ramifications, but in this episode we focus specifically on how a property owner can stop, stall, and in some cases actually overturn an improper foreclosure.  Real estate agents and investors can use these techniques to buy more time to negotiate a short sale, and troubled borrowers can find more time (and leverage) to negotiate a loan modification.  Our expert guest reveals how banks have routinely violated the foreclosure laws, and why the government settlement doesn’t protect the banks from civil litigation.  Knowing how to hold the bank’s feet to the fire is the secret to successfully stalling an illegal foreclosure.   Tune in and find out for yourself how to use this powerful tool to make deals that you might otherwise miss.  The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.comSaving a Mortgage When Banks Won’t Deal - Leveraging the Law to Stop Foreclosure

Interest in real estate investing is picking up based on the number of questions coming in from our listeners.  Of course, it probably helps that The Real Estate Guys radio show is the most downloaded podcast on iTunes and Apple is one of the most successful companies on earth.  It’s fun to be us.

We even respond to one listener who didn’t like a political comment made by one of our guests.  Well, it is that season and do you smell that?  Yes, politics is in the air.  And as long as politicians and their policies affect investors and our investing, we’re going to have to talk about what those rascals are doing.  And just like personal investment philosophy, we’re not all going to agree.  Not sure why people get their undies so knotted up when it comes to politics.  After all, that’s just one of many things we can all disagree about.  Some people like to drink light beer.  Can you imagine?  Whatever. Anyway, we had fun doing the show and love getting your questions. So keep ‘em coming!  Meanwhile, tune in and enjoy this exhilarating edition of Ask The Guys!

Dark Shadows - Are Lurking Foreclosures Sucking the Blood Out of Recovery?
0
Shadow inventory is a term used to describe gobs of distressed properties, mostly single family residential, that isn't yet on the market.  Statisticians look at top down data like bank reports and public filings.  But what about a street level view?  Atlanta, Georgia has been one of the stat leaders for foreclosures, so we thought it would be interesting to sit down with a guy who spends a lot of his time scouring the Atlanta market looking for distressed houses.  More foreclosures is good for buyers, but if you buy now and then get hit with a new wave of foreclosures, you could see your values take yet another dive.  Of course, if you're comfortably cash flowing you can afford to wait it out. But still, buying something that drops in value can be disconcerting.  It's called "catching a falling knife".  Then again, if you wait for a recovery to prove itself, you may miss out on some great bargains.  So we want to know: is a legion of zombie properties lurking in the dark shadows of the market - or are we on our way to a more stable and long term appreciating market?  Tune in and see what our special guest Ken Corsini says he sees when he ventures into the market looking for bargains.   The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.

Schiff Happens - Is The Real Crash Yet to Come?
42:50
Peter Schiff is our guest for this episode. In his 3rd appearance on The Real Estate Guys radio show, Schiff tells us about his latest book, "The Real Crash - America’s Coming Bankruptcy".  Scary title (and you thought the Mayan calendar thing was alarming)!  But remember:  In his 2006 book, "Crash Proof" Peter Schiff was right about the mortgage meltdown. So this time we're all ears. In this interview, Peter reminds us that in his follow up book, "Crash Proof 2.0", he also predicted how the Fed and the government would react to the mortgage meltdown: with massive stimulus (a.k.a. printing currency).  Once again, Peter Schiff was right.  In "The Real Crash - America’s Coming Bankruptcy", Peter Schiff warns that the ultimate crash will be caused by the ultimate bubble: government bonds and the U.S. dollar.  Now he may or may not be right this time, but we're sure you’ll want to hear what he has to say.  The good news is that according to Peter, there are things you can do right now to protect yourself.  Curious?  Then tune in and make some Schiff happen to you!

Economics, Politics and Freedom - Making Financial Decisions in an Election Year
51:53
U.S. election year political rhetoric has already hit high gear, but we’re sure the best (worst?) is yet to come.  And you can bet tinkering with the economy is going to be a major part of the conversation - probably more so than any time since 1992 and Bill Clinton’s now famous slogan, “It’s the economy, stupid.”   As real estate investors, we care deeply about things like the supply and cost of capital, job creation and tax rates.  And while we can’t control what happens, we sure want to anticipate it - especially if big changes are being proposed.  End the Fed?  Return to a gold standard?  Raise taxes on capital gains?  Eliminate the mortgage deduction?  Lions, tigers and bears? Oh my!  What’s an investor to do?  Well, start by paying attention to people who are paying attention.  To help you, we traveled to the Las Vegas Money Show to sit down face to face with our good friend, economist and outspoken political opiner, Dr. Mark Skousen.  As the founder of Freedom Fest, Mark Skousen is one of most connected and intellectually honest people we know.  Every time we sit with Mark, we learn and we’re sure you will too.  So tune in and find out what Dr. Skousen sees for the economy and economic policy as the United States  enters one of the more interesting election years in recent history.   The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Healing Commercial Property Woes - The Trillion Dollar Challenge
53:23
Over $1.7 trillion of commercial mortgages are coming due in the short term.  In a normal world, that debt would be refinanced and life goes on.  But today, many of those properties are underwater and there just aren’t as many lenders willing to refinance these loans.  In fact, our guest says that over $1 trillion of those loans will need to be re-negotiated.  Why?  Well, when you owe the bank a $10,000 you have a problem, but when you owe the bank $10 million, the bank has a problem.  And when banks lose a trillion dollars, we all have a problem.  It’s a complex topic with many nuances and lots of lessons.  Our expert guest Phil Jemmet runs a company that specializes in large balance commercial loan workouts.  He gives us a street level perspective and explains the process for getting these big problems down to a manageable size.  Your problems may be smaller (for now), but the principles of dealing with them are very similar.  So listen and learn as Phil Jemmet shares his secrets for reworking loans that are no longer working for you.  The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Catching the Wave - Where Tropical Profits are a Breeze
53:49
One of the secrets to making a lot of money is to catch a profitable wave.  Sounds interesting, but what does it mean?  Well, a financial wave happens when a variety of forces converge to move people or their money in a particular direction. That movement can have a substantial impact on any given asset class or geographic region - and the effect can be much more pronounced when the asset class or region is very limited in size.   That's why we've been intrigued over the years by the tiny country of Belize.  In this episode, The Real Estate Guys™ are on location at a beautiful beachfront resort on tropical Ambergris Caye (yes, it’s a rough life on the road as radio talk show hosts).  Here, we meet up with the #1 real estate broker in the country, who’s also the #2 international broker in the world for the #1 real estate brokerage in the world.  Yeah, he’s pretty big.  But he’s humble.  And he says the secret to his huge success is timing and location, location, location.  In other words, he’s riding a wave of surging interest in a particular part of Belize.  Very interesting!  So we turn on the microphones and ask him to tell us all about it.  Next thing we know, all kinds of real estate brilliance is falling out of his mouth!  Now we know why he’s so successful.  So grab your notepad and listen in as we discover how to catch a wave of opportunity and reap tropical profits in paradise!  The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Transformation in Action - The Tenth Annual Investor Summit at Sea
51:52
It’s been said that for someone’s circumstances to improve, that someone needs to improve.  Most of us know that. Just like attaining the ideal body weight, we all know what to do. So why aren't we all there?  Because contrary to popular myth, knowledge alone isn’t necessarily power. Some would argue that discipline is the answer.  Perhaps.  But who has the discipline to continually fight against their natural inclinations?  So the secret is to transform one's self into a person who consistently converts knowledge into effective action.  But how?    Transformation turned out to be the impromptu theme of our 2012 Investor Summit.  The knowledge provided by our amazing faculty, including Robert & Kim Kiyosaki, G. Edward Griffin, Rich Dad Advisors Ken McElroy, Garrett Sutton, Tom Wheelwright, Andy Tanner and many other amazing teachers, provided the seeds of change.  But the magic was the environment created through the synergies of investors from all over the world as we learned, laughed and transformed together.  In this episode of The Real Estate Guys radio show, recorded in front of a live studio audience aboard the ship on the final day at sea, our faculty shares their reflections and most important takeaways from arguably the most powerful Summit we’ve ever had.  The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.comcceed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Choosing the Right Market - an Engineer's Perspective
49:56
Is there a scientific way to approach market selection?  Something the average real estate investor can actually do?  Our in-studio guest Tom Wilson thinks so! Tom enjoyed a 30 year enginerring and management career in Silicon Valley, but decided that Corporate America wasn't going to provide the kind of financial future he dreamed of.  Real estate looked good, but he'd heard some horror stories, so he decided to put his engineering background to work on designing a secure path to real estate riches.  Today he's done multi-millions of dollars in deals and owns over 230 rental units.  So while he's not Donald Trump or Ken McElroy, his formula seems to be working.  And he says a big part of his success has been thoughful market selection.  Want to know how he did it?  Then listen and learn as Tom Wilson gives us an engineer's perspective on real estate market selection.

Zero to Zillions - It All Begins in the Mind
53:41
How to get started with nothing is one of the most common questions we're asked.  Often, the people asking don't realize how limiting their paradigm is. Everyone has something to work with and most have a lot more than they realize.  Why don't they see it?  We think it starts with the right mindset.  Donald Trump says "Think like a billionaire".  Tony Robbins says "You don't lack resources, you lack resourcefulness."  We think learning cool real estate techniques like lease options, assignable contracts, concurrent closes etc. won't help if you don't have a courageous heart, a creative mind and a powerful compelling why.  Conversely, armed with those things, the real estate entrepreneur will find all the resources and opportunities they can handle - and a lot more!  The challenge becomes how to say no to the good, so you can say yes to the great.  So start by saying YES to this exhilarating episode of The Real Estate Guys™ radio show!  The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com.

Multi-Family Market Musings plus a Different Look at the Rat Race

The Creature from Jekyll Island - A Conversation with G. Edward Griffin
53:09
The Federal Reserve Bank is arguably the most powerful non-governmental institution on the planet.  It controls the money supply of the world’s largest economy, has a profound impact on interest rates and inflation (both of which directly affect real estate investors!), and has tremendous authority over all banking in the United States.  And if all that wasn’t power enough, because the U.S. dollar serves as the reserve currency of the world, the Fed and its policies also profundly affect global trade.  It's no wonder then, as the 2012 elections approach, with so much emphasis on the economy, that the topic of the Federal Reserve has made its way into the mainstream of the presidential debates.  Ron Paul wants to end it.  Rick Perry says its acts are treasonous.  Herman Cain was a Chairman of the Kansas City Fed.  Yet, many people really don’t know who the Fed is, what it does, how it works, or who it’s accountable to.  One thing is for sure: The Fed is controversial.  Fortunately, we aren't afraid of a little controversy. It makes life interesting!  So, we decided it would be fun to stir the pot a little bit by tracking down the author of one of the most iconic, well-researched and controversial books we know of on the topic of the Fed.  Whether you love it, hate it, or it's an enigma to you, if you’re a serious real estate investor, you need to understand the Fed.  Listen in as we talk to documentary filmmaker, author and activist, G. Edward Griffin about his controversial research and perspectives on the Fed.  Then, continue your education by visiting the Recommended Reading area of our website for additional books and other opinions about this powerful and controversial institution.

A Tale of Two Investors - Building a Business and Leaving a Legacy
49:54
Learning real estate investing is a lot more than just understanding contracts, financing and lease agreements.  Technical knowledge is important, but easily obtained, while "soft skills" (attitudes, habits and beliefs), inner drive, and the right team of advisors, vendors, staff and friends are arguably even more important, yet much more elusive.  As your intrepid hosts, we trot around the globe (mostly the Western Hemisphere), talking to the smartest, most experienced people we can find.  And fortunately for you, we take our microphones along so we can bring all this fabulous knowledge back to you!  In this episode, we talk to two different real world real estate investors from two different markets.  Listen in as we sit down with in Memphis with real estate entrepreneur Terry Kerr, and then during the commercial break, jet out to Las Vegas where we connect with our faithful Oregon based buy and hold listener, Craig Horton.  Learn how they got started, what they're doing today and some of the most important lessons they learned along the way.  The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides real estate investing news, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.  To learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter, visit www.realestateguysradio.com

August and the Economy Part 4 - Can a Bad Economy Create Great Investments?
55:59
Special guests Peter Schiff and Ty Andros share economic insights in our fourth and final installment of August and the Economy.  Peter has become widely renowned for his independent perspectives on what ails the American economy and what it will take to fix it.  He contends regularly with mainstream media pundits and has an impressive ability to predict major economic trends.Ty Andros also manages money and is very outspoken in his views - and deep concerns - about U.S. monetary policy and the future of the dollar.  He strongly advocates storing wealth in something other than dollars.  Of course, we like real estate, but then again, we are biased!Both men are well versed and influential on economic and financial matters.  With the credit downgrade, jobless "recovery", lingering foreclosure mess and the upcoming presidential elections, all eyes (and ears) are watching the economy.  And since the best tenants have jobs with steady paychecks, it behooves serious real estate investors to pick markets and property types most likely to prosper in uncertain times. That means watching - and understanding - the economics behind markets, currencies and demographics.  Of course, we've learned that when uncertainty abounds, those who study harder and think more deeply are better able to take effective action, while those who don't are stuck waiting and wondering about what will happen.  We say that "Think and Do" is better than "Wait and See".  So listen in to find out what two these two big brains are thinking.  Then think for yourself and take appropriate action to grow and protect your wealth.

If necessity is the mother of invention, then distress is the mother of creativity.  And if you’ve ever been in a brainstorming session, you know the best ideas come from getting lot of people talking.   It’s also true that the brightest, most experienced people often have a lot to say.

Finding Your Unfair Advantage with Robert Kiyosaki
52:48
We sit down with Robert Kiyosaki, author of mega-bestseller Rich Dad Poor Dad and talk about his latest literary derivative, Unfair Advantage - The Power of Financial Education. "Unfair" is a bit of a misnomer, because everyone has the opportunity to become educated.  But in the real world, so few people invest the time and effort to learn about money and business, that those who do seem to operate with an unfair advantage.  Robert Kiyosaki says it's why the rich get richer, while the poor get poorer.  Those armed with financial education are able to make money in down markets as well as up markets, so while most people go up and down, the educated just keep ratcheting up.  That's the side we want to be on!  We're very fortunate to have a good relationship with Robert and the Rich Dad organization going on 8 years now.  We've read most of his books, interviewed most of his advisors, gotten to know many of the folks in the home office, and attended seveal Rich Dad conferences.  Of course, the two Rich Dad real estate advisors, Ken McElroy and Wayne Palmer, were guest faculty on our 2010 Investor Summit at Sea and are coming back for the 2011 edition.  All this to say that we've developed a strong respect for Robert Kiyosaki and the Rich Dad team.  More, we've found their mesage to be inspiring and empowering - not just for us, but for many of our listeners.  So whenever we have the opportunity to sit down with Robert Kiyosaki, we're interested in whatever's on his mind.  Of course, we brought the microphones along to capture the conversation for you.  We really enjoyed our visit and trust you will too!

CPA Tom Wheelwright is a Rich Dad Advisor to best selling author Robert Kiyosaki.  Since it’s that time of year when millions of U.S. citizens are dutifully preparing their taxes - and wondering if their affairs are structured properly to avoid paying more than necessary, we dug into the archives to re-visit a conversation we had with Tom in May 2009.  Even though the technical details of the tax code changes from year to year (which is why you need a CPA who understands the unique needs of real estate investors), many of the core principles of taxation remain largely stable.  Tom’s thesis is that successful real estate investing includes running it like a business. What exactly does that mean?  Find out in this ENCORE episode featuring host Robert Helms, co-host Russell Gray and Rich Dad's Tax Advisor CPA Tom Wheelwright.The Real Estate Guysc Radio Show podcast provides education, information, training and resources to help investors make money with their real estate investments.  Learn more and subscribe to the free newsletter at www.realestateguysradio.com

Donald Trump may be the most famous “real estate guy” who made it big, lost it all, then made it all back bigger and better than before.  What took him down?  In his book, The Art of the Comeback, the Donald points to two things: complacency and the Tax Reform Act of 1986.  We could do a whole show the importance of playing close attention to things that affect the flow of money into any asset class.

Today's episode is for all the folks who are just discovering real estate for the first time, or are coming back after getting scared off or hurt in the last downturn.  Low interest rates, a growing population, more renters, less new building, and prices lower than they've been in many years, have lots of people (including us) ready to get started...again!
