Buying Rental Properties

On today’s podcast episode I talk about buying rental properties. I talk about cash flow, appreciation, and the tax benefits of buying rental properties – especially if you have a steady job and have a lot of taxes being withheld from your paycheck. I also cover the “myth” of investing in rental properties where beginners think they are going to sit back and collect the cash flow. In reality, many times in the first few years of a rental property there isn’t that much cash flow. The trick is to buy the property below market and to capture equity. If you do that then you increase your net worth the day you buy the property. Even if your cash flow is only moderately positive when you buy, it will be much more positive when you refinance. This only makes sense if you gain equity when you buy. That means you should be buying wholesale deals at wholesale prices. Over time you will be able to raise rents, and your equity will increase as well. If you are smart, you will put a 15 year mortgage on that property and own it free and clear in 15 years. Remember that the goal is financial freedom. If you want to become wealthy, buying rental properties below market, repairing them, renting them out and then refinancing into a 15 year mortgage is a solid and easy way to build your wealth. I show you a few examples with my current rental properties to show you the numbers, the equity and the cash flow and tax benefits and appreciation potential over just the past 4 to 5 years. Real estate can make you very wealthy – if you are patient and you buy right.

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!
