People have definite opinions about whether they would rather live in the city VS the suburbs when they are buying their personal home, but that's not the only time. Investors also have strong preferences when they are buying investment property.
Part of this comes from where each of our “comfort zones” lies, but another part of it comes from where we find the most value or the most demand in our investment property. I have a guest post for you today from Ashley Lipman that takes a look at living in the city VS the suburbs.
I would love to know your opinion. Where do you prefer to live? Is it the same or different from where you invest?
Mitch Stephen is back for another show, and today the topic is money. Specifically we are going to talk about three types of money you can earn in your real estate business: one time money, temporary money and forever money.
There is definitely a place for all 3 when it comes to building a profitable real estate investing business.
I always like having my friend Mitch Stephen on my podcast, and today is no different. One question I get all the time is about hiring an acquisition manager. I knew that Mitch has extensive experience with this particular process so having him on the show was a real no-brainer.
People want to know things like: When should you hire one, and once you make the decision to hire an acquisition manager, what do you look for in that person? We're also going to dive into seller financing in this show and a whole lot more.
San Antonio investor Mich Stephen has purchased more than 1500 houses. He is also the author of 3 books. I think it's safe to say he knows a thing or two. Read the rest of this entry →
Do you ever feel like you are drowning in emails? Most of us do. I know that I do. I will admit that I have a problem unsubscribing. What if I need that resource later? Or, “I just might need this down the road”.
If that sounds like you, I have some good news for you. I found a tool called “Unroll Me”, and I have been using it for awhile to help solve the problem of my own over cluttered inbox.
As you will see from this short video, I”m not completely cured of this addiction. I need to go in and do a little more cleanup in my own inbox.
About Unroll Me
I can tell you this for sure. Unroll me is free, it's drop dead easy to use, and it will absolutely change the time you spend sorting through emails each and every day if you use it all the time.
One thing that you do need to do periodically is go in and scroll through the sorted emails. Look at the ones in your roll up. Do you still want to keep all of these, or are you ready to hit the “delete' button?
Once you have done that, it's time to go into the emails that you allow in your inbox and see if you've had a change of heart about some of those folks.

I read this article a while back written by Seth Godin called “The Wrong Bus”. I absolutely loved his article, because he shared such a powerful lesson. After all, who hasn't been guilty of staying on the wrong bus long after they should have jumped ship?
Here is what Seth wrote:
*Your first mistake was getting on the A53 bus, the one that goes crosstown instead of to where you're going.
*Mistakes like this happen all the time.
*The big mistake, though, the one that will cost you, is staying on that bus.
*I know it wasn't easy to get on the bus. I know you got a seat. I know it's getting dark outside. But you're on the wrong bus, and staying on the wrong bus won't make it the right bus.
*If you really want to get where you set out to go, you're going to have to get off the wrong bus.
So, what’s the Point?
Now you might be saying, “I’m a real estate investor. How does this apply to me”?
Let me ask you this…
Who hasn’t gotten on the wrong bus? Who hasn’t taken the wrong turn, made the wrong decision or just gone in the opposite direction they should have? Let’s be honest. We’ve all done that. Read the rest of this entry →
If I could pick one thing that you could do today that would make an enormous change in your business over the next 12 months it would be to get an accountability partner.
