High-Yield Cash Flow without the Hassle - Real Estate Note Investing
55:57
Cash flow comes in two flavors ... rents or loan payments. Most real estate investors opt to be landlords to collect rents, tax breaks, and equity. Of course, along with rents, land lording brings responsibilities and liabilities. Note investing is another way to collect cash flows without the hassles of land lording. And done right, the yields are excellent, and you can also find equity! In this episode, we talk with a multi-million dollar note investor about how to enjoy high-yield cash flows through real estate note investing.

Enter wholesaling ... which is arguably the fastest path to convert your hustle and relationships into usable cash. In this episode, we talk wholesaling with an industry veteran. So tune in to learn about making fast money with wholesaling. The Real Estate Guys™ radio show provides investing commentary, education, training and resources to help real estate investors succeed.

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.

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.

Getting in Touch with Your Inner Investor - Finding Clarity in Your Investment Strategy

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

Fun in the Sun and Income Too - Hospitality Update from the Caribbean

It's amazing how many real estate investors overlook hotels as an investment vehicle.  Sure, the numbers are big...and nightly rentals are much more labor intensive than little green houses that people live in month to month.

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.

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
