How To Get Started In Real Estate

On this podcast episode I talk about how to get started investing in real estate. I see so many people that want to learn how to get started investing in real estate, but don’t know what to do to get started. I find that it helps if you can break down your ultimate goal (financial freedom) in order to create a process of workable steps that can help you achieve your vision of where you want to be in the future. On this episode we speak about the financial freedom number of $10,000 per month in passive income. I have found many of my students mentioning this number of $10,000 as the amount of money that they would need per month in order to live comfortably without having a job. That is why we call it the financial freedom number. It’s the amount of money you need per month to be free of a boss and a job and to be able to live your life on your terms. That is the ultimate goal. If you can achieve that goal then you will be free. I discuss how you can easily achieve this goal by putting together a 15 year plan to own 5 houses free and clear in 15 years. If each one of those houses rents for $2,000 per month then you will have $10,000 per month in passive income. I then talk about the steps that would be necessary for you to take to make this goal achievable. We talk about how you would need to learn how to find houses at a deep discount of at least 20% to market value in order to capture equity on every purchase. And how you would need to market to motivate sellers in order to find these types of houses at a discount. And why to get started, your best bet is to FIRST LEARN HOW TO FIND THESE HOUSES. And the best way to learn how to find these houses is by learning how to wholesale. If you are willing to look at the big picture (financial freedom), then you are able to understand that the small steps are building blocks that you will need to take to achieve your goal. STEPS 1. learn how to find houses at discounts 2. make money wholesaling these houses 3. Build up your capital by saving this money until you can buy rental properties 4. Find rental properties at 80% or less (all in) 5. Buy, repair, rent and refinance these houses 6. Keep the houses until you own them free and clear with no mortgage If you do the above, you will be very wealthy!

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!
