072 Buying over 2,000 Single Family Homes with Rod Khleif
< 1 day ago
Rod Khleif has bought over 2,000 single family rental properties in his career, but surprisingly he loves to invest in multifamily properties now. He bought many houses in the 1980's when he was a real estate agent and could take advantage of low down payment investor loans. Rod had over 800 houses in 2006 and was worth a lot of money on paper, but his houses did not cash flow well. When the real estate market crashed, Rod was in big trouble. He got rid of most of his houses and survived, but when he came back he decided multifamily houses were a safer investment. On this episode of the InvestFourMore Real Estate Podcast I talk about how Rod got starter in real estate as a Dutch immigrant, how he built his empire, how he became a successful agent, why he likes multifamily and much more including his book. How did Rod Khleif get started investing in real estate? Rod immigrated to the United States from Holland when he was 6. He became interested in real estate when he saw his mother do well with a rental property. As soon as he turned 18, he got his real estate license and started selling houses. By his third years in the business he was making over $100,000 a year, which was quite a bit of money in the early 1980's. Rod credits his willingness to do what others would not. He knocked on doors of people going through foreclosure, talked to as many people as he possibly could, and worked hard to build his business. Along with being an agent, Rod also began to invest in real estate. In fact Rod bought over 500 single family homes in Denver, Colorado. Can you be successful as a young real estate agent? How was Rod able to buy over 500 homes in Colorado? Buying houses was much different back in the 1980's and Rod took advantage of many programs that are no longer available. HUD and VA had special programs that allowed investors to buy with as little as $500 down! Those programs no longer exist, and investors now have to put at least 20 percent down. Not only did Rod buy houses in Denver, but he bought properties in Memphis, Tennessee and Florida. H
