082: When To Rehab
When do you start reinvesting money into a property? Here are 4 rules: #1 Never do the whole rehab #2 Do your worst case scenario #3 Look for 30% return or don’t do it #4 Leave something for the next guy Buying Multi-family is not buying real estate—it’s buying a business. Every dollar that you spend, 30 cents should come back to you. If you don’t get a return on investment, why spend the money? Rehab is not about taking shortcuts—it’s about being smart about cutting costs that aren’t needed. Create the illusion you are spending money. What do you need to spend to increase rents? Does it make sense to rehab the whole place? Maybe you can fix things by changing 1 or 2 things. . Bottom line, if you are going to spend money, make sure you will get a return on it.

079: Four Quadrants of Real Estate
You shouldn't invest in real estate if you don't know the market. You have to know about the location and what kind of residents are in the area. When you know what you’re doing, you’ll make money. If you’re not making money, then you don’t know something. The real estate is a game about KNOW. The 4 Quadrants of Real Estate are: ● Price ● Down Payment ● Debt and ● Cash-on-cash

078: How To Make Small Deals Work
There’s been some massive swings of instability in the stock market. I’ve got enough drama in my life. I don’t need it with my money. Little deals produce little cash. Little deals will get hurt when the market corrects. All the foreclosures were small deals: 2, 6, 8 , 10, and 12 units. What’s the problem with these deals? They cannot cash flow. It’s back to termites, tenants, and toilets. I tell you the truth—you should be in at least 32 units.

077: Risk vs Stability
Do you like drama in your life? I’ve got enough already. I don't want drama with my money. Two mistakes people make after they work hard for years: 1. Never invest 2. Invest in the wrong thing If the stock exchange collapses or if Bitcoin goes up or down, I get monthly checks. I’m paid to wait while my property value goes up. That’s the certainty that you need with your investments—you need mailbox money. The more scale you get, the more stability you have. Most people can’t buy scale. That’s what Cardone Capital gets you: 1. Scale (More doors is better) 2. Income diversification (a lot of renters paying monthly rent) 3. Middle of the road rental prices Most people look for salaries but they should be looking for opportunities and the right people. How do you get started? Look at everything. Start looking at apartments. Walk properties! “Nothing pays better than a business that pays.”

076: How to Pick Your Real Estate Market
When it comes to investing in real estate, how do you know what market to get into? If you already follow me, you know that you should go after big apartment deals. Purchasing a home is not an investment. The bank sold middle America on the dream of owning a home. When you buy a house—you don’t really own it—the bank does. Never buy anything that you can’t own. When you really know your real estate market you’ll: Be in it—love it Keep it—location is growing Produce Income

075 How to Underwrite a Deal
Don't let big numbers keep you from investing in real estate. If you collect cash flow over time, appreciation will happen. This isn't crypto, this isn't speculation, this is real estate—the safest, best investment you can make if you do it right. That means buying the right property at the right location at the right time. This is what I do at Cardone Capital, and I invite you to join me.

072: Apartments are Better than Houses
Buying a House Vs Investing in Apartments - Real Estate Investing Made Simple: Buying a house is not an investment, but it could be a place to save money. There is a big difference between a saving vehicle and an investment vehicle. Investments pay you every month while you pay into your savings every month, right? So do you want to pay or get paid every month? Most people don’t own their home. The banks own it (your mortgage) and the government owns it (your property taxes). No matter how you look at it, a house is not the best place to put your money. Your parents may tell you otherwise, society and the media will tell you otherwise, but buying a home is simply not a good investment. If you want to get rich, look into multi-family as an investment vehicle. Learn more at http://www.cardonecapital.com

071: How to Buy Your First Deal with No Money Down
Uncle G brings it for free every Monday with captain Ryan. Today on the show Grant advises to not chase your budget. Finances are won on offence. When you don’t have money, you need to get other people’s money. Who’s got your money? Don’t buy deals you wouldn’t look at if you had a bunch of money. The fact is, we all get stuck finding money no matter how rich you are, so the thing to keep in mind is the deal is what matters, not how much money you have. Most people do deals based on how much money they have. There is no such thing as no money down because you will have to exchange something with them—sooner or later the money will have to come from somewhere. Where can you go to raise money? It’s out there, you just have to find it. Act as a broker and act like you know what you’re doing. Here are 3 things to ask before going into any deal: 1. Ask a woman to tell you how she felt around the property. Just like when you go into a room, you know how it feels. How does the property feel to you? This is subjective, but ask yourself this. 2. Go over the numbers, the T12. This is objective. Do the numbers add up and make sense? 3. Go look at worst case scenario. Go look at the worst year ever. Will it still break even if another 2008 happens?

070: How to Make Money in Real Estate
There are 3 main ways to make money in real estate. #1 is the Wholesale Flip. This is a sales job. You don't need to invest money if you want a sales job. There’s nothing wrong with it but it’s not really real estate investing. #2 is the Small Deals. These are the little duplex's, quads, and anything under 32 units. Most people do these because they have a budget. #3 is Big Deals. You want to be in 32+ doors, even if you have to collaborate with others to do so. The biggest difference between #3 and #2 is income. Do you want monster deals, baby deals, or a sales job?

There is a shortage of great product out there in multi-family. The most important question is how to find a deal, and how do I get them to sell me that deal?

067: Renting vs Buying
What are the benefits of renting vs. buying? Most people think the benefits of buying a home outweigh the benefits of renting but this is false. Most people never take into account the cost of opportunity lost. It’s almost never better to own. Instead, you should rent what you own. The more doors you have the better. 1. Renting is cheaper. 2. Nobody should own. 3. Even rich people shouldn’t own, although if you’re rich, it doesn’t matter if own—because you’re rich. Buying leaves you with no mobility. Freedom should be your mantra, not a house. Don’t use the excuse, “Well, I’ve got to live somewhere.” That doesn’t mean you need to buy because you don’t just need to own something, you need cash flow!

066: 10 Biggest Mistakes When Buying Real Estate
1. You’re not buying: If you don’t buy, it’s because you don’t know what you’re doing 2. Buying too small: This happens when you become scared thinking that big deals are riskier. This is false, small deals are riskier. 3. Buying on a Budget: don’t be confined to what you can “afford”. Don’t have a budget when you buy, have a budget when you own. 4. Believing the Pro Forma: don’t put significance on a fairy tale. 5. Underestimate expenses: taxes and insurance aren’t fully understood. 6. Not funding Capital costs—roofs, carpets, etc. need to be funded, so set some aside for when you will need it. 7. Over leveraging—borrowing too much money. 8. Under leveraging—not borrowing money. 9. Buying on CAP rates: If you’re only looking at 8 caps, you’ll miss out on good deals that don’t fit your criteria. 10. Not knowing: ignorance is not bliss.

065: Analyzing Cash Flow
When you buy a property, you need cash flow. There is a reason why cash is called king. You want big cash flow every month when you make an investment. But how do you analyze the cash flow of a property? 1. Income — VIP parking, laundry…anything that people need and want that you can charge extra for. 2. Expenses — You’re going to have payroll, landscaping, utilities, insurance, repairs, taxes…these are all things that you can’t get rid of. 3. Debt — Principle and interest on the loan. 4. Cash Flow — Are you making any money on the deal or not? If it’s 1 door rent it, if there are many doors, own it. Time and cash flow = appreciation. If you buy the right property and make the right moves with it, time and cash flow will get you a 2X to 3 X return—guaranteed.

064: The Truth About NOI
The NOI is Net Operating Income. You have income, expenses, and then you have NOI. 5 units and above are dependent on NOI. It’s what the price is based off of, what the banks look at, and what the cap rate is made from. To determine the NOI you take Gross income minus expenses = NOI. The higher the NOI the more cash flow it’s going to produce. 3 questions to ask in multi-family: 1. How much will you pay for the property? 2. How much will it operate for? 3. How much can you sell it for when you exit? You can make money with any of these three ways, but ideally all three. Keep in mind that as soon as something comes on the market and it becomes a good deal with a good NOI, you often have over 10 or more buyers coming in immediately. Loopnet is the garbage dump for properties that aren’t selling. As an example, there is a deal for 14 units in Athens, Georgia. It costs 750K so you’d put 190K down and finance 460K. It’s 70% occupied. The NOI is 45K and the debt would be 32K annually. That means you’d basically be putting 190K at risk to make $1300 a month. That deal probably isn’t worth it! The bottom line is you have to know what you are doing with any investment.

063: Real Estate Q&A
If you had $1,000,000 and you had to hold it for 10 years, what would you invest it in? Crypto? Gold? Stocks? Real Estate? I choose Real Estate. Why? 1. It’s real. 2. It provides cash flow. 3. It gives me leverage. 4. I get appreciation. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in real estate, but losing money isn’t one of them. Buy lower CAP rates, that will make sure you have a better location. Time will take care of your appreciation. Don’t buy on a budget. If you’re buying on a budget, you’re better off being an investor riding on a deal with someone else. I’m inviting you to invest in Cardone Capital to buy massive deals in good locations that will provide stable returns as we wait for time to appreciate.

062: Are We At Top Market?
How do you determine if you’re at the top of the market? When cranes are in the air, beware. If you see cranes everywhere, you are at the top of your market. We haven’t had a real estate collapse since 2009—that is 8 years of prices going up. You don’t want to buy at the top! There will be a pull back, it’s just a matter of when. Builders over build. Yet every 10 years, apartments double in value. Always keep in mind rents, rates, and supply. 1. Know you market—This is a prerequisite for doing anything in real estate. 2. Know the rents—What’s the cost to build? 3. History—What’s the history been on the place? Go back 5 years on the T12’s. 4. Plan for a pullback—The market won’t go up forever. Be careful not to buy at the top! 5. What’s the market going forward? Look to the future. The place to learn real estate is not in a book, it’s in your neighborhood. Analyze the deal you live in.
