The Opportunity in Short Term Rentals and Airbnb

On today’s podcast episode I talk about the opportunity in short term rentals and Airbnb. Over the past 2 years, some of my students have transitioned from rental properties and section 8 rentals to Airbnb. And the opportunity in short term rentals is something that you need to pay very close attention to. As an example, my student Andy had a Section 8 Rental Property in Miami that was generating around $2,200 per month. When the tenant moved out, he decided to turn the rental property into a short term Airbnb rental. That same property now generates north of $8,000 per month. Over the past 12 months he has been converting all of his rental properties to Airbnb. He is only 32 years old and he is already financially free. My student Davidson purchased a property on the West Coast of Florida in Lehigh Acres that he was originally intending on fixing and flipping. I encouraged him to explore the opportunity of keeping it as a short term rental. His listing just went live yesterday and in the first 24 hours he had 17 days in December booked, as well as this weekend and next week booked too. His booking revenue is already at 3 times what that same house would rent for. Another student of mine Kadi with her brother Dale are now working on their 3rd Airbnb property in Palm Bay, Florida. When we showed the examples of these students at our most recent Fixing and Flipping Houses Boot Camp everyone in the room wanted to get into an Airbnb! If you are a real estate investor, you should consider investing in this short term rental space. If your financial freedom number is $20,000 per month, and one Airbnb generates $5,000 per month, then you would need just 4 Airbnb’s to be Financially Free! There are many advantages of Airbnb to a regular rental property including: 1. cash flow of up to 3 times as much (or more) 2. Your property is not being trashed by tenants 3. Utility of being able to use the property yourself with your out of town guests 4. Your Airbnb could be your “retirement” 5. Financial Freedom sooner We are converting more and more of our students to Airbnb. You should definitely explore this opportunity. The buy side when you purchase the property looks the same. You are buying a wholesale deal at a wholesale price. But once you have purchased the property, you could choose to keep it as a rental, fix and flip it – or keep it as a short term Airbnb rental. If your property is located in a decent middle class neighborhood you should definitely explore the Airbnb option.

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!
