Buying Rental Properties

On today’s podcast episode I talk about buying rental properties. One of the most common questions I get from students is whether or not now is a good time to buy a rental property. The answer is yes. It’s always a good time to buy a rental property as long as you can satisfy two criteria. 1. The property must cash flow from day one 2. You are buying the property at a discount With today’s low interest rates where 30 year fixed mortgages are at 3%, and 15 year fixed mortgages are at 2.3%, it’s an absolute no brainer to buy a rental property. The tax deductions and cash flow that you get from owning a rental property, along with the long term appreciation are some of the benefits of owning a rental property. Another benefit is that it’s a great hedge against inflation. But by far, the fact that you will ultimately own the property free and clear and have no mortgage, is the real benefit of owning a rental property. Once you have no mortgage, the rental property will pay you income for the rest of your life. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that investing in a rental property is a smart decision. If you have a job and decent credit you should definitely buy a rental property. However, it is much more beneficial for you to learn how to buy rental properties at a substantial discount to market value so that you create “instant equity”. And you won’t find properties like this on the MLS. You will need to target and market to motivated sellers directly in order to find the best most discounted deals. I recommend that you market to tired and disgruntled landlords, absentee landlords, pre-foreclosure and foreclosure, probate and inherited properties, as well as vacant, boarded up and abandoned properties.

Excellent Content!!!!!

This is a wonderful podcast to listen to with such valuable content. I was very interested to listen to your take on why one should purchase rental property.


Best real estate investor podcast.

Lex gives you real tips with actual names of multiple sites and services to use from the beginner up to advanced. I feel he’s giving away his classes for free on the podcast. Most podcasts stop short of details and give generic advice unless you join there groups.

Great show for beginners or experts!

As an amateur flipper since I was in my teens, I kind of have gotten pretty good at identifying great opportunities and taking advantage of them. But, Lex dives much deeper and gives actionable tips on how to make sure you are looking at everthing before making any decisions. I'm hooked!

Be Prepared to Learn!

Two words: Information Dense. Sweet Moses. I’ve listened to other real estate investing podcasts but this by far is the most practical, the most hands-on podcast I have heard to date. You can tell that the host, Lex, is very passionate about real estate investing. That passion with his experience translates into an excellent podcast. He shares theory about a topic and then tells a story about his experiences in the real world. That to me is gold!
