Get Rich Education (general)

For many, it’s become a scary world with $5-$6 gas, soaring food prices, spiking rents, the medical system is still a mess, and wages aren’t keeping up with inflation.

Inflation is at a 40-year high of 8.6%. The Fed raised rates ¾%, the biggest jump in 28 years.

For every $1M in real estate debt that you have, you’re benefiting $86,000 each year due to your debt debasement.

Affordability has become so bad for wannabe first-time home buyers that increasingly, they’re becoming your renter.

Many project rent growth to exceed home price growth this year. Rent.com’s Rent Report shows a 26% annual rent increase nationally.

Every 1% in a mortgage rate increase decreases a buyer’s purchasing power by 12%.

GRE’s COO Aundrea Newbern, MBA joins me. We discuss our favorite RE information sources.

Aundrea expects to diversify her RE portfolio into more markets. She’s been focused on southeast Georgia.

Some RE resources we use: www.city-data.com, US Census Bureau data, CNBC.com, HousingWire.com, FRED data, the MLS, AirDNA.co, GREmarketplace.com.

When considering adding to your RE portfolio, simply talking to a Property Manager can be more valuable than the best website.

Aundrea sees a balanced market at prices $250K+, and a sellers’ market at prices below $250K in southeast Georgia.

Days On Market (DOM), Sale-To-List Price Ratio discussed.

LTRs are in high demand and low supply. STRs are saturated in many markets.

Partial transcript: Welcome to GRE! I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. There’s so much to pack into one show today - inflation at its highest rate in over 40 years, the Fed raising interest rates the most in 28 years, rents are going up fast, then GRE’s COO Aundrea Newbern & I on our favorite REI resources. Today, on Get Rich Education.

 

_______________________

 

Welcome to GRE! From Auckland, NZ to Oakland, CA and across 188 nations worldwide. This is Get Rich Education. I’m your host, Keith Weinhold.

 

Before I discuss real estate, what’s happening with inflation & interest rates is so exceptional that I want to cover this first.

 

When the latest inflation reading came in at 8.6%, it dashed hopes that it's peaked. We have no evidence that it’s peaked.

 

And as I like to say, that 8.6% is just the level that the government is willing to admit to. It's really higher.

 

It's the third month in a row that it has exceeded 8%.

 

Treasury Secretary Janet "Grandma" Yellen has already warned of what she calls "unacceptable levels of inflation".

 

And Yellen looks like my late Grandma Weinhold. Yeah, they look a lot alike. One difference though, is that Grandma was not wrong about inflation. 

 

Another difference between my grandmother and Yellen is that… Janet Yellen never gave me Star Wars action figures on Christmas like my Grandma did.

 

Well, for many people, especially in the lower middle class, it's become a scary world with devastating $5-6 gas, soaring food prices and spiking rents. (I’ll get to that shortly). The medical system is still a mess. Wages are up perhaps only 5%.

 

Their quality of life is really suffering now.

 

Libertarians point out that fiat inflation is theft of one's private property. You earned a dollar. Now your prosperity has been stolen.

 

Sneaky shrinkflation is stealing from you too. Yeah, you're not imagining it, 

 

Gatorade has trimmed its 32 ounce bottles down to 28 ounces. A small box of Kleenex has shrunk from 65 tissues down to 60. 

 

Package sizes are shrinking faster than Lake Mead, all while producers charge the same price or more. That’s what shrinkflation means.

 

It's become an awful economic malady for consumers.

 

So, let’s talk about higher interest rates since that’s what can keep inflation from soaring.

 

Many interest rate types are based off of the Federal Funds Rate.

 

Now, I like to look at history to see what typically happens in like scenarios. History doesn’t tell you everything, but many people don’t look at it.

 

Rewinding three years, this rate was hiked up to 2.5% by early 2019… and the stock market was freaking out by then. Trump even demanded a rate cut. He got it and that, turned stocks around.

 

Yes, Presidents are supposed to stay independent of the Fed, but, in any case…

 

Just last week, the Fed Funds Rate was raised up to 1.75%... and the stock and crypto markets have already taken a swan dive off the high board.

 

Everyone thinks that rates are going to be raised again at the next Fed meeting next month.

 

So how do you think that equity markets are going to like that? History shows us that they don’t.

 

But see, history shows us that even when the Fed Funds Rate is raised to 10%, it can take years to quell inflation.

 

Commodities like housing, food, and energy, often excel in either inflationary times or recessionary times.

 

That’s where you want to be. Buy & own what people need, not what they want.

 

These things have a finite supply. Bringing them into existence takes "proof of work". 

 

Proof of work means that it takes real world resources to extract or produce something—like framing roof trusses, growing timber for lumber, mining gold, extracting oil, or growing wheat. 

 

If you held any of these commodities individually, you might merely hedge inflation.

 

But if you can control an entire commodity by only putting one-quarter or one-fifth of your "skin in the same", then you get to short the dollar too.

 

"Shorting" means that you're betting that something is going to fall in value—the dollar in this case.

 

Now you're creating leverage and arbitrage. You're really profiteering from inflation ehre.

 

Real estate is like a basket of commodities. It is made of: lumber and copper and glass and all kinds of commodities.

 

So, if you have $1M in real estate debt, it's now being debased at a rate of 8.6%. Great.

 

This effect alone has increased your prosperity by $86,000 this year—$86,000 this year alone, and that’s besides appreciation, income, tax benefits, and amortization.

 

Yeah, you’ve got an $86K tailwind.

 

Do you remember back in 2019 when I did the podcast episode called The Debt Decamillionaire? It was Episode 260. You might remember that episode.

 

That's when I touted the counterintuitive merits of taking out $10M in real estate debt... with the payments outsourced to tenants.

 

Now, I know that not everyone has the wherewithal to do that. But if you were able to implement that plan, it has now created an extra $860,000 of annual wealth for you.

 

Yes, as one of just five ways you’re paid.

 

If you think that sounds scary - or unconventional - it’s definitely unconventional. Because being conventional gets one nowhere.

 

So, though you might have not been able to amass that much good debt, I was ahead of the inflation, helping you get out in front of it to take advantage of it. Of course, I talked about it well before 2019 too.

 

And, no, I sure didn’t know that a pandemic was coming in 2020 and it was going to bring all this inflation this quickly… but that is how things worked out.

 

Now, if you’re uninitiated on this, if you originate $10M in loans, understand something. Your net worth didn’t just decrease by $10M on the day that you got the loan. 

 

The day that you originate the loan, what happens is that you’ve now got $10M in your asset column and $10M in your debt column.

 

Leverage amplifies the $10M in your asset column… and then your debt column erodes through both tenant-made principal paydown - and this higher inflation.

 

Maybe I’m stretching your thinking just merely by discussing 8-figure debt like that.

 

So why is someone really compelled to be a real estate investor today?

 

One big reason is that soaring inflation is going to be around for a while.

 

So last Wednesday, when the Fed raised interest rates three-quarters of 1% - their highest daily increase since 1994.

 

Understand that higher interest rates decrease demand. There's another name for substantially decreased demand. That is called a recession. I don’t know if we’ll get that far.

 

Now, capitalism is not inherently inflationary.

 

Sure, as employers' demand for labor rises, that's inflationary.

 

But as businesses compete to offer goods and services at the lowest price - which is capitalism - that's deflationary.

 

Libertarians are quick to point out that America has too much government intervention to be considered a truly capitalist economy anymore. That’s a different conversation.

 

But some have speculated that politicians are plotting another stimulus check drop on American citizens so that they can deal with inflation.

 

I really hope that they do not do that. Sheesh, this would be a policy blunder. This would be like shooting a man that's already dead.

 

This absurd approach of "printing up currency" would be to help people deal with the consequences of... "printing up currency".

 

If you think that’s preposterous, well…

 

Quebec is actually doing this. They're issuing $500 stimulus checks to help the Canadian province's residents deal with inflation.

 

Yeah, that’s really happening. 

 

Soaring gas prices aren’t just painful for summer road-trippers. Because fuel is a critical input for so many goods and services, higher costs are causing havoc across the economy in a lot of places that you wouldn’t expect it…

Aviation: Airfares in the US skyrocketed 19% in April from a month earlier, an increase that is almost exclusively driven by a jump in jet fuel prices, United CEO Scott Kirby said. Now, you might have expected that one. But get this…

Law enforcement: A sheriff’s department in Michigan instructed its deputies to cut back on visits for non-urgent calls because it had blasted through its fuel budget with months remaining until a new one kicks in. (Yeah, inflation affecting law enforcement!)

Emergency services: An ambulance crew in Pittsburgh said it was limiting its service outside of 911 calls after facing a similar budget crunch. Its fuel expense for the full year is typically $50,000, and it’s already got close to that entering June.

Landscaping: Lawnmowers and trimmers use gas to make your front yard the envy of the neighborhood. But after absorbing all of the cost increases they can, some landscapers have slapped a surcharge on customers, and others are even looking into electric mowers and propane as an alternative fuel.

In any case, a look at history tells us that we could be in for high inflation for a full decade.

 

So make financial decisions accordingly.

 

Risk assets are typically really sensitive to big moves in inflation and interest rates.

 

Major stock indices are down, down, down.

 

And cryptocurrencies are in an all-out historic meltdown. They’re more volatile than stocks, and many have lost 50%-60%+ of their value just this year. 

Crypto trading platforms have halted withdrawals

Companies cut jobs

Panicked investors dumped their holdings

The public is finally dismissing promoters' claims of "Hey, I made $50k on doodoo coin. So you can you!". You don’t really hear that lately.

 

Let's Go Brandon Coin, now worth $0.00. And “Let’s Go Brandon” coin makes Dogecoin look like some sort of respectable family heirloom.

 

I actually still think bitcoin could have some potential, but…

 

So then where to look? Where do you go for yield today?

 

Some feel that the "true rate of inflation" is 15% today. Then that's how much prosperity you lose by storing cash.

 

(I believe it's wise to hold at least 3-5% of your real estate portfolio's value in cash.)

 

One place could be oil if you think there’s still a runup to be had there. But oil has performed well so far this year. Gold still hasn’t really awakened despite inflation.

 

What you can do… is…

 

Follow the money. Big institutional buyers like American Homes 4 Rent keep plowing money into real estate, especially single-family rental homes.

 

That’s historically the place to be in times of either high inflation or a recession.

 

Though the institutional share is increasing, the overwhelming majority of homes are still bought by individuals just like you.

 

In the fourth quarter of 2021, institutional buyers only comprised 18% of home purchases. 

 

As affordability clamps down on wannabe first-time homebuyers, unfortunately, many of these fine people never make it to the closing table.

 

Every 1% in a mortgage rate increase decreases a buyer’s PP by 12%.

 

Mortgage interest rates are now 6%+ on OOs, about 7% on rentals. I believe that the only way houses are going to get more affordable anytime soon is if mortgage rates come down. That’s because home prices aren’t coming down anytime soon.

 

So what do these priced-out people do? Increasingly, they become your renter. 

 

Rent price growth is predicted to outpace home price growth this year.

 

Though some measures are lower, Rent.com's Rent Report shows an astounding 26% annual national rent increase.

 

While a lot of major markets are struggling with a streak of Fed rate hikes that could drag on longer than the final two minutes of an NBA game...

 

...for real estate investors, the rent just keeps flowing in. 

 

And here’s what it comes down to. Picture this. Like I’ve discussed before, first home prices rise, and then rents follow later.

 

Picture two waves. Say that these two waves are 18 months apart. The first wave is home prices. Today, prices are still climbing but the wave has likely crested.

 

That second wave that’s coming in now are the torrid rent price increases.

 

The trough between the two waves is where the cash flow is worst on new purchases.

 

And now the second wave - that rent increase wave - is building. 

 

That’s the ah… seafaring here in the rental housing market ocean if you will. 

 

Hey, In the past, I’ve discussed where I’ve invested and what RE types I like to own. Why don’t we hear from GRE’s own COO Aundrea Newbern, MBA about how she’s positioning her portfolio in this environment of normalizing prices & spiking rents. 

Also, she & I will discuss some of our favorite resources & websites for real estate info. That’s straight ahead. I’m Keith Weinhold. You’re listening to Episode 402 of Get Rich Education!

__________________

Yeah, great stuff from Aundrea, as always. 

We discussed markets. Of course, it’s about the submarket too. As an example, maybe you don’t feel like Erie, PA or Toledo, OH or Grand Rapids, MI are fast-growing markets. 

Actually, I think Grand Rapids, for one, is growing, but the point is, that even if a metro has a stable population but it’s, say, medical district is booming - like a lot of cities’ medical districts are… you may very well be better off in an OK metro with a booming medical SUBmarket than you are elsewhere.

It’s often about that SUBmarket within a metro that really matters to you.

There aren’t too many places that you can invest & get yield today. But high inflation is the motivator to do so.

The housing market has calmed, but it’s still strong.

The homeownership rate of 65% is poised to fall these next few years. People must live somewhere. This should make for more renters.

Mortgage delinquencies have fallen for seven straight quarters. The forbearance program kept people in their homes.

“The Great Reshuffling” describes the US housing market since 2020.

Inflation flips money upside-down. Focus on prudent borrowing, not saving.

International Man Doug Casey joins us. He calls for a “Greater Depression” ahead.

For consumers, the costs of energy, food, and housing have become crippling. 

Doug thinks that the decline of world economies will continue. World cities have more people living on the streets. 

He thinks that the Fed can’t hike rates very high. It will result in too many debt defaults. Then how will inflation be curbed?

Doug thinks you should save, but don’t save in dollars.

Are price controls coming? That’s when the government tells companies that there’s a ceiling on the price they can charge for their goods and services.

We discuss what you can do to prevent being wiped out in a crisis.

I discuss living well vs. austerity.

Partial transcript:

 

Welcome to GRE! I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. While much of America & the world keeps getting crushed by inflation, you’re profiting from it.

 

I provide you with a housing market update… then, as higher inflation reduces the quality of life for so many WORLD residents, today’s guest gives both us a global and national perspective on the prospects for a DEpression, today on Get Rich Education.  

__________________

 

Welcome to GRE! From NYC’s Brooklyn Bridge to Bainbridge Island, WA and across 188 nations worldwide, I’m Keith Weinhold. This is GRE!

 

And it’s Episode 401. Now, no, it’s definitely not episode 401(k). No life deferral plans here! Uh, oh excuse me… they’e called… uh, tax deferral plans. Though life-deferral plans would be a more apropos moniker.

 

I’m grateful that you’re here for another wealth-building week.

 

Now… asking an angry spouse to calm down is not exactly a tactic that's... effective.

 

By now, Jerome Powell has been effective at raising interest rates to help America's housing market calm down.

 

Though mortgage rates have inched lower in recent weeks, they're still 2% higher now than they were a year ago today.

 

In fact, the rate rise from early March to early May was the swiftest that I've seen in my entire life.

 

Rates scaled a wall. Clearly, this impacts affordability

 

The rate of property sales is a little lower now… off its peak.

 

It's getting more Darwinian out there. The NAR estimates that 15% of wannabe first-time homebuyers will be priced out of the market this year. 

 

People have to live somewhere. If they can't own, they'll have to rent... or keep living in their parents' basement… that’s an option for some people too.

 

Right now, the homeownership rate is 65%... and that is pretty close to the average of the past few American generations.

 

I’ll tell you… that 65% homeownership rate is poised to fall faster than dogecoin. 

 

Well, what this likely falling home ownership rate means is that the renter pool should swell, putting more upward pressure on rents.

 

That’s what happens. If home ownership goes from 65% to 60%, then America’s renter proportion basically goes from 35% up to 40%.

 

You know how I've talked about how home prices rise first, then rent increases lag behind? Well, this is it. This is the place and time where rents catch up.

 

With housing prices, are we set up for a recipe of "housing crash" or is it more like "housing calm"?

 

Looking at purchase applications, demand is probably past its peak. But housing demand still drastically exceeds supply

 

Normal housing supply is about 1.5 million units. We've come up from a jaw-dropping paucity of 376,000 homes back in February. And it's still just 516,000 now (chart).

 

We're only up a tad from famine-like levels.

 

America still needs about 300% more inventory just to bring the market back into supply-demand balance.

 

Housing supply is inelastic; it cannot be increased quickly. It'll take several years to reach balance.

 

How else can we measure this balance? One way is with days on market (DOM).

 

Pre-pandemic it was 45 days. Now, despite higher interest rates, it's under 30 days & under 20 days in a lot of markets.

 

Mortgage delinquencies have fallen for seven straight quarters. The forbearance program worked. One can critique its morality. But it kept people from losing their homes.

 

As the market entropy - with wild bidding wars & a “free for all”, couldn't last forever - nor was it good that that condition persist - it's still a strong housing market. 

 

Expect a gradual return to a calmer, more normalized condition. Yes, “calmer” market conditions are poised to emerge here.

 

Hey, pretty soon, you might not have to offer more than the list price for a property.

 

Expect less competition from all-cash buyers. Sheesh, “all-cash buyers”. What are those zero-leverage psychos doing anyway?

 

Hey, property inspections are coming back. Imagine that you can ask a seller to fix some things for you and not fear that they'll reject your offer.

 

So what is the bottom line with today’s housing market?

 

Rents should keep rising faster than historic norms.

 

Supply is so low that housing price crash prospects are near zero, probably even through 2023.

 

20%+ annual price increases still exist in many markets. Nationally, this is calming now.

 

By the end of the year, home price appreciation should still be higher than the historic norm of 5%.

 

And you know…

 

Back on December 1st of last year, I published GRE's 2022 National Median Housing Price Forecast and I also announced it on this show at that time that I expected a 9% to 10% rate of home price appreciation this year.

 

We’re nearly at mid-year here, and I still like how that forecast looks.

 

In America, you’ve heard of the Great Resignation or the Great Migration but I think that the term that best encapsulates what’s gone on in American housing since the start of this decade is “The Great Reshuffling”.

 

Working from home was a significant driver of this "Great Reshuffling" and accounted for more than half of the steep increases in home prices seen during the pandemic. That’s what new research has found by the Nat’l Bureau Of Economic Research.

 

By now, you’ve got more Americans that are shuffled into place. That found that long-term home with the realities of their new life.

 

That’s the bottom line. There is a Great Reshuffling, and now people are settling into place so we’re kind of seeing this welcome “calming” of the housing market as we move toward eventually settling into more normal conditions.

 

Well, hey. Thank you for the “Instant Reaction” from so many of you after last week’s milestone Episode 400 where Hal Elrod & I discuss how to improve relationships and be a person of value.

 

Greg from the United States remarked: “Two of my favorite people were together in one episode. I’ve been following Keith since the beginning of his podcast and journey… and I love “The Miracle Morning” and practice it habitually.

 

Roxana from Romania said, This was just phenomenal! A terrific talk that I listened to three times already. Thank you for all the good that you do through GRE! Congratulations for 400 episodes.”

 

I appreciate the remarks there, thanks.

 

You know, I want to hear from you, the listener. 

 

If you’ve been following along here and you’ve acted by putting income property into your portfolio and you’re now the beneficiary of inflation & you’re profiting from this inflation… with the Inflation Triple Crown… from time-to-time, we like to have a listener on the show.

 

If that interests you, reach out to us through: GetRichEducation.com/Contact

But if you’ve had your life impacted, we want to hear from you. You don’t need to be a big name. 

 

In fact, if you’re just sort of salary or wage-earning person that’s had their life impacted by taking GRE principles and putting them into action, I want to hear from you.

 

Again, get started there at: GetRichEducation.com/Contact

 

Inflation flips money upside-down.

 

Though inflation isn’t a new story, most experts believe that inflation is going to stay elevated for a longer period of time here.

 

I think that some people - everyday people - let themselves be coerced by inflation. So they cut back on grocery spending & complain about car gasoline prices & lament that their 401(k) is plummeting & live small and maybe even live miserable.

 

Then there’s this increasingly popular narrative that seems to enforce that - you’ll do with less & you’ll be happy about it. 

 

And you hear more about buzzy terms, like, well “Reducing your standard of living is what “sustainable” looks like. Don’t you want to live sustainably?”

 

And people will try to conserve gasoline consumption by biking in the rain and having a muddy streak up their back.

 

Now, all things equal. I think that doing this for the environment can be good. That’s fine.

 

Rather than sustainability, some try to mask the quality of life degradation (from inflation)... justifying it with… well, I’m practicing “minimalism”. 

 

Minimalism. Yeah, I don’t need to go on vacations. Translation = I’m too fearful of my financial security to even get out and see the very world that I live in.

 

Whoever said that less is more never had more… and why have more when you can “have it all”? I kid a little bit here…

 

But… if you keep your quality of life because you invested in real assets with good debt… then go ahead and recycle some more consumable items in your household if you want to help the environment.

 

You don’t get to recycle your life. You’ve only got one of those… at least here on this earth.

 

Today’s guest believes that the prospect of a Greater Depression lies ahead. Let’s explore this together, today.

_________________

 

Yeah, it’s good to get the bigger-picture perspective sometimes.

 

Doug feels that future RE price increases could be in question. Well, even if appreciation completely stopped in the future, today you can still lock in low mortgage interest rates & rent that property to others… with persistently high inflation debasing your debt all along.

 

I brought up price controls in our chat today, which is when the government steps in & says something like, no, gas station, you absolutely cannot charge more than $6 per gallon for gasoline, or no, leaf lettuce grower, you cannot charge more than $4 for a one pound bunch of leaf lettuce. 

 

That ceiling - that price control - has often led to disastrous consequences for economies.

 

Prices often got high in the first place because there’s a relative scarcity of those goods.

 

Then if you put a price control on, say, leaf lettuce, then producers are less incentivized to produce. They won’t produce at a loss. 

 

When producers stop producing, then there’s even less reason for anyone to produce the item, making it more scarce, making your consumer choices more narrow & making your life worse.

 

Price controls can turn out to be a form of austerity. 

 

Then there’s more direct austerity - which is analogous to saying that you cannot run your air conditioner below 80 degrees in order to conserve electricity. 

 

Well, that DIRECT austerity measure also reduces your quality of life… and it’s politically unpopular. A President doesn’t want to institute a direct austerity measure like electricity conservation.

 

So a price control has more political expediency than austerity but it can have the same drastic result - reducing your consumer choice and quality of life.

 

If you picked up on what Doug was saying, he said that you can save. But don’t save in dollars. Saving in dollars guarantees a diminishment of your purchasing power.

 

My take is that saving in dollars guarantees a loss in you & your family’s standard of living. So the best way to avoid a “Greater Depression” at home, is to be vigilant that…

 

Inflation flips money upside-down. Get out of dollars. Get into real assets & debt. 

 

We’ve built a resource here to help you do exactly that. Get out of dollars, get into real assets & good debt at GREmarketplace.com

You often relate to other people when you show yourself as vulnerable and fallible. In many contexts, this is even better than acting professionally.

Today’s guest, “Miracle Morning” author Hal Elrod, tells us that people spend too much effort trying to impress others.

When you give the most, it’s liberating.

“You SHOULD care about what others think of you. That’s your reputation.” -Keith Weinhold

Once, Hal e-mailed friends, ex-girlfriends and colleagues to seek criticism about himself. That feedback hurt.

Everyone wants change, but no one wants to change.

Generosity, selflessness, and contribution foster meaningful relationships.

I share that viewers were recently critical of my YouTube video. Hal admits that he believes that he’s not a great listener.

Hal strives to add value to every single person that he meets.

Partial transcript:

Welcome to GRE! I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. Being a person of value and building lasting relationships often comes down to self disinterest, empathy, and connection. You’re going to build not just your wealth mindset, but your skillset.

 

It’s milestone Episode 400, today, on Get Rich Education!

 

Welcome to GRE! From Cherry Hill, NJ to Cherry Springs Dark Skies Park, PA and across 188 nations worldwide, you’re listening to one of America’s longest-running and most-listened to shows on real estate investing. 

 

That’s our major so to speak… with minors in economics and wealth mindset. I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. You probably know that after 400 episodes. 

 

Today’s guest doesn’t often do podcast conversations like this. But GRE’s Operations Lead, Aundrea introduced me to “Miracle Morning” author Hal Elrod last year. 

 

So Hal is standing by, and then, a bonus, as Aundrea joins me near the end of the show today as well.

 

Yeah, so here on milestone Episode 400, there aren’t any balloons falling out of the sky or anything. It’s an opportunity to expand your thoughts & mindset & skillset in a different direction that should benefit you both within real estate investing & your broader life outside of it - from relationships with your real estate agent to your spouse.

 

In human relations, more than ever, people relate more to you as a vulnerable and even fallible person than they do as one that acts strictly like a professional in a lot of circumstances.

 

The best way to show others in a business relationship (that you don’t know very well) that you’re a real human being & that loosens up both of you & make you laugh is when you go out of your way to point out that when you left home this morning… you’ve got mismatched socks on… and you make some joke about it… something innocuous yet relatable like that.

 

Then there’s handling ego and criticism in a way that makes you endearing and empathetic. 

 

And by the way, the definition of empathy is “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person.”

 

Now, we get overwhelmingly positive feedback and comments about the show here… and I am grateful to you for that, whether it’s through Apple Podcasts reviews, or where you can always reach out if you’ve got a question or concern or suggestion at GetRichEducation.com/Contact… or increasingly, we get more & more comments from you on our Get Rich Education YouTube Channel.

 

There is a rather robust comments section there…

 

… and there’s one popular video that we have over there. It has more than 100,000 views and a lot of “Likes” and “Comments”. And I was rather criticized for how I handled this video - it was an interview. 

 

Now, it was the type of video that crossed over, it didn’t bring in our usual real estate investor crowd. It was kind of a hybrid crowd of geography & real estate.

 

And, again, we get overwhelmingly positive feedback here. But the nice remarks aren’t where you get the lessons, so… I got dozens of critical comments on this video… and these commenters were clearly critical of the way that I handled the interview. It wasn’t the guest.

 

Comments were rather disparate. Some said that I brought no value to that interview - I was the host with a fairly prominent guest. Others said that I talked too much, some said I talked too little, it just seemed like I couldn’t do anything right with that crowd.

 

Now, one way that I could have handled it is set a policy here that any negative comments have to be deleted. We could have just deleted them all.

 

Well, I don’t want to do that. You can disagree. In fact, some say that a disagreement is actually the start of a great conversation.

 

We could go in there & reply and tell the commenter that they’re being dumb or say something else disparaging.

 

Here’s how I handled it once I learned about this. I went into the YouTube comments myself, read a bunch of the criticism, and made individual responses to a bunch of them. My response was something like:

 

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Others seem to take exception to this material too. It is probably in my best interest to read all of these comments, see what I can learn from this, and I’ve got to do better next time. I have clearly disappointed a lot of people.

 

That was my response. Something like that.

 

Well, what did that do… it appeared to engender… empathy, really. Some of the detracting commenters then came back to me & said, “Aw, you know, that wasn’t so bad. I don’t think there’s much that you need to change. I still learned a lot from your video.”

 

See, when I showed the world that I’m listening and that I’m a fallible human being, just like we all are, sometimes it makes the critic come back and sort of repent or even reconsider.  

 

Next week, here on the show, “International Man” Doug Casey & I are going to discuss economics and what he thinks the prospects of entering what he calls “The Greater Depression” are.

 

Today, Hal Elrod & I on how you can be a person of value and build meaningful relationships…

Have you ever met anyone that created wealth with stocks? I haven’t. Why not? 

Inflation, emotion, taxes, fees and volatility are the reasons. I break this down.

The Rule of 72 is what traditional advisers cite as a wealth-builder. I describe why this does not work.

Learn why returns from stock and mutual funds are often less than zero.

What really creates wealth? Leverage.

Learn trade-offs between long-term rentals and short-term rentals.

Zach Lemaster joins us. A licensed optometrist and captain for the US Air Force, he’s become financially-free through real estate. 

We discuss the pros and cons of owning “Build-To-Rent” new construction income properties. It takes patience during the build process.

Welcome to GRE! Why Don’t Stocks Create Wealth? After answering that, learn about some tradeoffs between LTRs and STRs, and the pros & cons of getting a construction loan and new-build rental properties. Today, on Get Rich Education.

____________________

 

Welcome to GRE! From Hialeah, FL to Haleakala, HI and across 188 nations worldwide - that’s almost all of them - I’m Keith Weinhold. This is Get Rich Education.

 

I find it interesting that there are still smart people out there who think that stocks create wealth.

 

Everyday people could create wealth just by investing in stocks or mutual funds or ETFs?

 

I’ll tell ya. I have never met anyone in my entire life that has become wealthy from investing in these vehicles.

 

Now, that’s something that shouldn’t offend stock adherents. That has been my personal experience. 

 

Just asking around here at GRE a bit, I found that our Content Manager, Matthew… he said that he once knew just one person that did get wealthy with stocks… and that is because that person’s company IPO’ed.

 

OK, well that’s worth knowing. But as for everyday investors, what one might call a retail investor that buys and owns Apple stock or Amazon stock or bought the S&P 500 Index fund from a big mutual fund company… I mean… do you know anyone that ever created wealth from stocks? Or do you even know anyone that ever knew someone that created wealth with stocks.

 

I'm talking about creating wealth. For example, someone that started at a level of either "just getting by" or starting at a level of "middle class" and then transitioned to "wealthy", simply through shrewd and savvy stock investing.

 

I think a lot of people invest in stocks just because that’s what the herd does.

 

But they never ask themselves at all… "Have I actually met anyone that's ever created wealth from stocks?"

 

And if you run with the herd, you don’t get ahead.

 

So why is this? How come virtually no one gets wealthy with stocks?

 

Well, look. We all learn and understand the world through different lenses. I'm about to share the thought paradigm that shifted my own personal journey… and why I have not personally - or through an LLC - or in any way, owned any stock, or mutual fund, or ETF since the year 2014.

 

Right now, major stock indices are flirting with bear market territory. This means a value loss of 20% from a recent peak. 

 

Recently, the Dow Jones posted its eighth straight weekly loss. That's its longest weekly losing streak since 1923.

 

Could we say that misery loves companies? Big Tech has shrunk to Medium Tech. Even staid reliables like Apple, Target, and Walmart are tanking.  

 

Other than a one-month virus "flash crash" in March of 2020, many Millennials and Gen Zers have zero experience with a sustained bear market.  

 

None have occurred for thirteen years, which is an unusually long time frame.

 

Perhaps these investors will "sell low"; maybe they'll stay the course.

 

Now, investing in the stock market is so common - and so herdlike - that if you’re talking in a general conversation and say: “the market” - people just assume that you mean the stock market.

 

Well, shouldn’t “the market” be creating wealth for people. 

 

After all, the S&P 500 has averaged a 10% annual return over time. In order to emphasize compounded returns, something that traditional, old school advisers often cite is "The Rule of 72".

 

You've probably heard of it.

 

What you do is take the number 72, divide it by your annual percent return (10), and that's how many years it takes your money to double. 

 

Therefore, an S&P 500 investor should double their money every 7.2 years. Well, that sounds pretty good to most people..

 

Then over the decades, several doublings should ensure a fantastic retirement and perhaps even a taste of wealth.

 

But why doesn't it?

 

Why doesn’t it provide a fantastic retirement most times?

And why doesn’t it put people on that wealthy echelon… ever? 

 

This is due to five chief drags—inflation, emotion, taxes, fees, and volatility. I’ve glossed over that before. But lets see how this all negates what so many investors think is some kind of good return.  

 

Let's subtract each one from this 10% unadjusted stock return.

 

Inflation

Many experts agree that the CPI, currently 8%+, understates the true rate of inflation. It could be 15% now.

 

But let’s just say that long-term, true inflation averages 5%.

 

Yes, you could make the case that it’s more. But let’s just use 5% inflation. Well then...

 

…your long-term 10% stock return minus 5% inflation = 5% inflation-adjusted return.

 

Emotion

Everyone knows you're supposed to "buy low" and "sell high". But many do the opposite.

 

Why?

 

One has difficulty buying low because prices have often fallen for a long period of time before the dip. The predominant emotion is discouragement.

 

When stock prices have gone down, down, down, like they have this year, so many people get emotional and sell low… and they justify that by saying… I’m sick of losing money… and if I sell, I guarantee that I’ll stop losing money. So many sell low.

 

But on the flip side, why isn't everyone selling high? It's because prices have grown. It's hard to sell out of upward momentum. Up, up, up, up, up, friends are making money. You’ve got FOMO. This emotion is euphoria. This makes people buy - maybe not at the peak - buy they often buy higher that what they sold for.

 

But despite all this, most people believe that they're above-average investors—despite the statistical impossibility. This effect is called illusory superiority.

 

It's like how 7 out of 10 people believe that they are above-average drivers.

 

People often sell lower & buy higher.

 

We'll just say this takes one's 5% inflation-adjusted stock return down to 4%. That's being kind.

 

Taxes & Fees

Long-term capital gains taxes start at 15%. The highest ordinary income tax rate is 37%, which is the short-term capital gains tax equivalent.

 

Those percentages are what get taken out of your profit - that’s what eats into the entire 10% return that we started out with here.

 

Even if your funds are sheltered in a 401(k) or many retirement account types, yes, you could get tax-deferred growth. But you must begin paying taxes in retirement.

 

Fees are something that vary quite widely.

 

So… an S&P 500 investor's return adjusted for: inflation, emotion, taxes, and fees is often below 2%. Maybe far below 2%.

 

We're not done.

 

Volatility

So many people miss this.

 

The Rule of 72 and other projections are based on a fixed annual rate of interest.

 

It's called the compound annual growth rate (CAGR).

 

Our example… with this Rule Of 72 assumed a smooth, exact 10% return every single year.

 

This is irresponsibly quixotic. The real world doesn't work this way.

 

Let's say that a price falls 20%—which again is a bear market. Now, you must gain 25% to get back to "even". That's just math.

 

Now, if it falls 40%, it must gain 66.7% just to return to sea level.

 

Using a smoothed CAGR diminishes the damaging effect of return volatility.

 

So let's take our 2% return that's already been adjusted for: inflation, emotion, taxes, fees. Now subtract out this volatility.

 

And now, you can see why real rates of return are often less than 0% for stock, mutual fund, and ETF investors. Maybe they’re minus 3%. Maybe they’re minus 12%.

 

Real stock returns often crumble faster than a Nature Valley granola bar. They're not good for you either—full of sugar and canola oil.

 

Note that I even used what many consider "good times" in my example—where we started with a 10% unadjusted return.

 

This is an audio format here on GRE Podcast Episode #399 so my analysis wasn't deeply technical nor replete with formulas for pinpoint accuracy.

 

You might remember when we had Garrett Gunderson here on the show a few times. He really goes deep on how stock & mutual fund investors typically lose prosperity year-after-year and Garrett thinks that I’m being kind when I say that a stock investor’s real return is “0”.

 

It helps you begin to understand why you rarely—if ever—met anyone that acquired wealth with these vehicles.

 

About ten years ago, while working at the state Department of Transportation in an 8' x 10' blue cubicle, I began to realize some things:

  • Investing in retirement plans makes me safe and normal. I don't want a life that's safe and normal. That’s not extraordinary at all.
  • Every dollar invested in stocks and mutual funds is a dollar that cannot leverage other people's money.
  • Retirement plans provide zero income until I'm old.
  • I won't get ahead by following the herd.

Later, I interviewed the actual man that invented the 401(k) plan, Ted Benna.

 

Benna told me directly that the plans don't serve people the way they were intended. This helped complete my catharsis.

 

And my interview with Ted Benna is recorded. You might remember that episode. That was GRE Podcast Episode 197… if you haven’t heard it. 

 

Yeah, the guy that actually invented the 401(k) in the late 1970s. That’s here on Episode 197.

 

So, now you understand much of why I haven't owned any stock, mutual fund, or ETF-based investment at all since 2014.

 

This show is called “Get Rich Education”. So I could talk about anything related to wealth-building and stay on-point. 

 

But now you understand why I don’t discuss stocks. 

 

Real estate has some drags too. For example, investors often underestimate their maintenance and repair costs.

 

Ultimately, the fact that Real Estate Pays 5 Ways™ is why it's superior. It's how anything less than a 20% to 25% fully-adjusted rate of return is disappointing (learn more). 

 

Because real estate is an illiquid asset, this acts as a healthy barrier against "panic" buying or selling. Illiquidity diminishes the deleterious effects of emotion and volatility.

 

I do know investors who have created financial freedom through real estate, a lot of them, and I'm one.

 

If I can distill it down into one word for you, the short story about why I've met countless people that have graduated from middle class to wealthy through real estate is leverage.

 

Some of this is natural bias because I hang out in real estate circles, so I just tend to meet more of these people.

 

To stock investors, leverage is only available to more sophisticated types. Even then, it often comes with margin call risk. It's in a more limited measure than its wide availability in real estate.

 

Bear markets… like we have right now in stocks make people re-evaluate things.

 

To a younger investor that's potentially experiencing their first sustained stock bear market now, it's important to understand that...

 

...generally, stocks are not a game designed to build wealth for everyday people anyway

 

Times like these make people revert to fundamentals.

 

Ultimately, your success as an investor hinges upon your ability to provide others with value.

Be a person of value in the world.

 

There have been few times in modern history when owning real estate demonstrates more intrinsic value than it does today.

 

You're providing others with what has increased in usefulness and is historically scarce in supply… at the same time.

 

Wealth comes down to your ability to be valuable.

 

When it comes to residential real estate, there are so many ways that we can segment it. Later on today, we’ll discuss new-build properties vs. existing properties and what’s going on in those markets today.

 

We can also parse the space with LTRs vs. STRs.

 

When we define that, of course, as the name would allude to, it is based on the duration of resident stay.

 

Depending on the jurisdiction and more, a rental period of under 30 days could be considered a STR (some people refer to these as AirBNBs or VRBOs)… or even up to lease periods of less than 6 months could be considered STR.

 

LTRs have more predictable long-term income… because a tenant often signs on for a lease period of one year or more… and LTRs are also more recession-resilient.

 

STRs have lower occupancy - but because the daily rate is so much higher, they can be more profitable than LTRs.

 

When you look at any investment, it’s so fundamental to understand who you serve. Back to my point about stocks, it helps you understand how you can be a person of value.

 

In LTRs, you serve families, roommates, and everyday mom & pops.

 

Until just five years ago, STRs principally served two groups of people -  Vacationers & business travelers. 

With what happened in the world starting in 2020 with the virus, the STR community was concerned that the business traveler would go away & not come back.

 

But it didn’t seem to matter, because increasingly, over the last 5+ year, you have more & more digital nomads and WFA-types that rent STRs.

 

LTRs - Midwest & South, away from city center

STR Location - resorts, beach communities, ski resorts

 

HOA limits are something that you have more of with STRs.

    STR lodging or rental tax to the resident, you also get to charge the resident with the cleaning fee

 

Property Mgmt. costs tend to be 8-10% of each month’s for the owner of LTRs.

For STRs, you’ll often pay 20% or more since there are more resident turns & more advertising & listings to manage. 

 

When it comes to financing, you’ll often find LTRs to have more availability than STRs. This is huge… since leverage is what really creates wealth. 




Damages: STRs tenants pay upfront and usually place a CC on file to cover any damages. So there is some more protection that way.

 

One great piece of REI guidance is that the best STRs are the property types where if that market dried up, you could fall back onto them and use that same property as a viable LTRs.

 

To summarize what you’ve learned so far today…

 

  • The definition of a bear market is when a market has lost 20% or more of its value from a recent high.

 

  • Stocks don’t create wealth due to inflation, emotion, taxes, fees, and volatility. A lot of people miss that until it’s too late and it’s nearly retirement time - or when they thought they could retire.

 

  • LTRs and STRs have a lot of trade-offs. LTRs are easier to finance and have more recession resistance. STRs can provide more income when its dialed in just right. LTRs have the longer track record.

 

Coming up, a guest & I are going to discuss today’s opportunity on brand new construction rental property. 

 

That’s straight ahead. I’m Keith Weinhold. This is Get Rich Education.

______________________

 

Oh, yeah. Some good content from our guest on the pros and cons of using a construction loan with these new-build rental properties. You sure don’t have to go that route if you don’t want to.

 

For this batch of properties, and it is an ongoing batch of constantly refreshing properties, if you want to get to the front of the line, go ahead and e-mail our investment coach Naresh.

 

You not only get access to available properties - SFHs up to four-plex & sometimes larger, existing build & new-build, some properties conducive to STRs at times - though most are LTRs… some really inexpensive properties, at times less than $150K - they would tend to be existing, renovated properties, not new ones. 

 

For access to all those property types and free coaching, contact Naresh here.

 

You can do that at: naresh@getricheducation.com

 

Coming up here on the show… next week, for milestone episode 400 - it is Miracle Morning author Hal Elrod & I, discussing investor mindset and relationship-building in real estate. Yes, it look longer than I expected to get Hal & I together at the same time. That finally happens next week. Our Operations Lead here at GRE, Aundrea, is expected to be here with you & I for that show next week too.

 

The week after Hal Elrod, the “International Man”, Doug Casey joins us. Last time he was here, we discussed ideals like liberty & freedom. This time, it’s going to be about economics & it’s usually pretty gloomy commentary with Doug… but he keeps it real.

 

Then, down the road, Rich Dad Tax Advisor Tom Wheelwright is back on the show with us yet again to help you cut your taxes toward zero.

 

So with Hal Elrod, Doug Casey, and Tom Wheelwright coming up… I’d say that one inspires you, one depresses you, and one informs you. 

 

Hal being the inspiration

Doug being the source of the depression - he knows that I kid, I was joking with Doug Casey about that last time

And then, Tom Wheelwright being informative with… seemingly… some new tax plan that he has to tell you about.

 

Then after that, negotiation expert Chris Voss returns to the show. You might have seen his masterclass course. 

 

So… GRE is so stacked with great shows in the near future here.

 

In inflationary times, there is no better place to invest than in real estate.

 

I mean, even if you bought a property with no loan & with no tenant in it, real estate would be an inflation hedge just based on that alone… just based on it’s capital price tracking inflation.

 

But then you get the leverage where you can 4X or 5X inflation… while also having your debt debased… while also having your cash flow OUTPACE inflation since your biggest expense - the mortgage - stays fixed.

 

This is just one of so many reasons why real estate is what’s made more ordinary people wealthy than anything else. 

 

I really encourage you to get started… not only do we have this new coaching service steeped in GRE principles… but it’s also free… and we also have available properties.

 

I encourage you to reach out to our friendly GRE Investment Coach, Naresh at

Until next week for Episode 400, I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. DQYD!

Are “coffin homes” coming to the United States? This is concerning. Housing is so expensive that people live in cocoons.

A new Biden plan makes efforts to increase American housing supply.

Finally! We need help on the supply side, not the demand side.

Will you be banned as a real estate investor? Some jurisdictions consider adopting this stance to keep soaring prices in check.

Some workers cannot afford to return to the office. If they leave home, they would have new expenses for gasoline, meals, parking and the big one—child care.

Of the “5 Ways Real Estate Pays”, historically: three are now high, one is low, and one is the same.

Caeli Ridge joins us. She’s the President of Ridge Lending Group. They specialize in income property loans.

Despite higher mortgage interest rates, investor-centric mortgage companies like Ridge haven’t seen much decline in business. Learn why.

Their “All-In-One Loan” can reduce the amount of property interest that you pay over time. It’s a 30-year line of credit with high flexibility.

Use Ridge’s All-In-One Loan Simulator to see if you save: https://ridgelendinggroup.com/aio-loans/

We discuss interest-only loans (which I like) and negatively amortizing loans. The latter got borrowers in trouble during the Global Financial Crisis; LTVs were as high as 115%.

Interest rate lock periods are up to 90 days at Ridge.

Investing out-of-state is easy. A mobile notary comes to your home, office, or even on vacation at a resort.

Ridge helps you sequence your investor loans, taking a long-term, holistic approach to your financial freedom.

The mad scientist of multifamily is here today. 

Neal Bawa is a data scientist. He keeps emotion out of real estate for investors in his $947M portfolio.

The blockchain is a digital ledger. It allows everyone to access information publicly and securely. It allows for the democratization of information.

Blockchain looks to disrupt the real estate title industry. Exorbitant title insurance fees could go extinct.

Tokenization is easier with blockchain. This means that you can sell real estate shares without friction.

Institutional investors are poised to own more of the real estate market, taking share from mom-and-pop operators.

Rents are spiking 13-15% annually in America today. When they rise, they rarely ever fall again. This is why rent amounts are called “sticky”. Learn why.

Even when I was a landlord during the GFC fifteen years ago, my rents didn’t fall.

Rents are skyrocketing due to:

  • Low housing supply
  • Higher prices
  • Higher interest rates
  • Demographics. 25-34 year-olds are in prime household formation years. They want their own place. This is America's most populous age cohort.

Next, I talk with an Alabama / Florida builder about how he overcomes today’s material supply chain and labor shortage difficulties.

They have a 93-day build time.

How? They store windows so that they cannot run out. 

Cabinets have been a problem so bad that they’ve had to leave homes 99% complete until cabinets were ready. 

Lumber and petroleum product price volatility has been a challenge.

They have their own division for titling vacant land for future building. 

Alabama has America’s 2nd-lowest property taxes. As an out-of-state investor, you get to pay property tax in the state where you own property, not where you live.

The housing crash is 100% certain. That’s because it’s a supply crash, not a price crash.

I define a price crash as a loss in valuation of 20% or more.

Here are the bubble factors that I consider in today’s show: 

Price, inflation-adjusted price, interest rates, affordability, bond yields, personal incomes, foreign buyers, equity position, housing supply and more.

From 2018 to 2022, I tell you about my recent housing forecast history.

Redfin shows us signs of a housing market slowdown. 

For Jacksonville investment property, start here: www.GREmarketplace.com/JAX

Properties that don’t cash flow with a 20% down payment often do with a 40% down payment. But your leverage falls from 5-to-1 down to 2.5-to-1.

Jacksonville has low cost properties, favorable climate, strong population growth, and growing industries like the Port Of Jacksonville.

One niche that people are passionate about is investing in self-storage facilities (SSF).

SSFs are recession-resilient and there’s less to maintain. Your “tenants” are often cardboard boxes, not humans. This makes it easy to manage.

Tenants often expect to stay for 6 months, but stay for 3 years.

A 10 x 10 storage space might rent for $200. You could increase the rent by 10% to $220. They won’t move out due to a $20 increase, but you got a 10% rent hike across all your units.

The best SSF locations are accessible, for example, near an expressway interchange.

SSFs are little more than 4 pieces of sheet metal, a floor, and a door. 

You can invest alongside today’s SSF expert guest, Dave, at: www.gremarketplace.com/selfstorage

This business model: Buy property from a mom-and-pop operator, add size and scale, and sell to a REIT, all in a 3 to 6-year span.

One must be accredited and invest at least $50K. Investors receive reports quarterly.

SSF cash flow is modest, typically 3-7%. This is an equity play, where you could 2-3X your funds on the sale at exit time.

Why are home prices surging? I’ve got 10 big reasons and break down every one. Some reasons are not obvious.

America’s residential loan-to-value ratio is just 31%. 

Interest-only loans are my favorite loan type. You don’t need to make any principal payments.

Most people think interest-only loans awful. I explain why they’re often so advantageous.

Uncertainty is high. Inflation is spiking, supply chains are unreliable, and COVID keeps hanging around. 

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine threatens to make inflation and supply chain reliability worse.

Amidst this backdrop, today’s guest, Richard Duncan, discusses prospects for a US recession.

Richard reiterates that the US needs credit growth of at least 2% annually (inflation-adjusted) to avoid a recession.

In a recession, nearly every asset class would be affected.

The wealth-to-income ratio’s importance is discussed.

The Fed has begun hiking interest rates. They soon plan to begin destroying dollars with quantitative tightening.

Richard wrote a new book, The Money Revolution. It includes a history of the Fed, and points out that China is positioned to become more powerful than the US.

But the US can stay in power if it creates tons of money in order to finance infrastructure, green energy, biotech, nanotech, and more innovation.

Richard maintains that capitalism no longer drives the economy. It’s “creditism” and “consumerism”.

I ask Richard about the risk of creating more dollars than production and innovation.

Contrary to seemingly everybody, Richard believes that the Fed is a force for good.

Now you have to earn your money twice. The first time is when you work for it, the second time is when you must invest it to beat inflation. My explainer on why higher interest rates slow inflation.

“Inflation is legalized counterfeiting. Counterfeiting is criminalized inflation.” -Robert Breedlove

When wages don’t keep pace with inflation, I explain why it destroys families.

We compare short-term (STR) and long-term rental (LTR) property in southwest Florida. Get started with buying properties yourself at: https://gremarketplace.com/SouthwestFlorida

Of course, Florida is an in-migration hotbed. Home price appreciation and rents are both 10%-20%+ year-over-year.

Today’s LTR tenants seek: infill lots, more square footage, an extra bedroom / den, and grocery store proximity.  

STR tenants want a pool. You really make your money November through April.

LTRs have more recession resistance than STRs. LTRs have more predictable, year-round income.

STRs often have $4,000-$5,000 a week of rent income. They have a 20% management fee. You can charge the tenants a cleaning fee. You owe utility costs and ~$100 monthly yard maintenance. 

Single-family rental properties are 1,500-1,900 sf on a ¼ acre lot, LVP flooring, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, 9’4” ceilings, and concrete block exterior walls.

Pricing is in the low $300Ks to low $400Ks. Long-term rents are $2,000-$2,400 / month.

Bitcoin Beach is a real world place. It’s in the tropics and has zero property tax. It’s on the Pacific Ocean.

It reminds many of coastal California, but without the sky-high prices.

Both bitcoin and the US dollar are legal tender here. Unlike the US, there is zero capital gains tax on bitcoin. 

A beautiful 40-acre property is being developed on a hill overlooking Bitcoin Beach.

Besides luxury homes, condos, and tiny homes, the property plan includes Pacific views from every unit. Home sizes can range from 300 sf up to 10,000 sf.

Today’s high inflation rate is poised to go higher. The latest CPI was up 7.9%.

Home prices hit an all time high of $364,000 per Redfin, up 16% annually.

Safety factors, building restrictions and the environmental movement all contribute to higher home prices and more homelessness.

A laid-back lifestyle in a tropical climate typifies “Margaritaville”.

Margaritaville is a popular and flourishing real estate brand. There’s also short-term rental income stream for you here.

A new location is opening in Belize. It is closer to more of the US than Hawaii, and with warmer water. 

It has the largest reef in the hemisphere, good for snorkeling, diving, and fishing. 

This under-construction project has Caribbean beachfront.

The partners with the development are the largest private employer in Belize and the nation’s largest law firm.

Learn more about owning a Margaritaville villa in Belize at: www.GREmarketplace.com/belize

My guest & I discuss the lifespan of tourist locales. They emerge with visits from young backpackers. Later in the cycle, once “discovered”, it matures into visits from affluent tourists.

This is a rare opportunity for an everyday investor to partner with a strong brand - Margaritaville.

You can own a villa, use it for a few weeks a year, and rent it out for the remainder of the year. You can leverage Margaritaville’s STR management partner.

Prices start in the low $200Ks.

Real estate contracts are brief and written in English. In Belize, you don’t need title insurance. The government backs all titles. 

In-person tours are available and encouraged. Our show guest really wants to show you Belize.

A high school teacher reveals the sad state of financial education today.  Most students still think the path is: go to school, get good grades, go to college, get a job, work until you’re 65, and then start enjoying life. 

Dan Sheeks is a Denver, Colorado-based high school teacher and real estate investor. 

He enjoys working with teenagers. He also volunteers for the Colorado Attorney General to advance financial education.  

Just last month, Dan released a book with Bigger Pockets: “First to a Million: A Teenager’s Guide to Achieving Early Financial Independence”. See it here.

He discusses solutions for teenage financial independence: 

1) When you turn 18, get your first credit card 

2) “House hack” real estate by age 21

3) Good debt vs. bad debt - do teens understand?

4) Mindset

5) Avoiding mistakes like “meme coins”

6) Saving

There are two main ways to create wealth. Debt-free is not one of them. If you only use your own money, you’ll stay small.

Learn why most investments are like baseball cards.

One market in America has such astounding resilience that prices were hardly dented in the 2008 financial crisis. 

Median home prices are still below $300K here today.

Dallas-Fort Worth now spans 11 counties, with 7.6M people. 

This real estate provider focuses on the DFW suburbs. That’s where the growth is happening.

Importantly, they use a plan for mitigating their higher Texas property taxes. 

Housing here appears undervalued and underpriced. People are often underhoused.

Due to supply shortages, next day appliance delivery has disappeared.

This real estate provider has plenty of available inventory right now. They offer you in-house property management at 6.5%. SFR prices are $160K-$225K.

This is an actionable resource where you could buy property and benefit from the five ways you’re paid at: www.GREmarketplace.com/Texas

You’ve been making $438 each night in your sleep. That’s one result if you’ve been following my plan. 

I compare real estate’s annual performance to: stocks, gold, silver, bitcoin, bonds, and oil.

This state ranked 3rd in Moody’s Housing Affordability Index, has the 7th-largest domestic economy, and is a two-hour flight from 75% of the US & Canada. 

This state is also home to offices for Google, Facebook, Carvana, and more. In 2020, it ranked 4th of 50 states in U-Haul’s net in-migration.

With higher property prices, what rent-to-value ratio makes sense today? I answer this thoroughly.

Lower RVs make sense today due to: lower interest rates, new-build properties, the timing of equity harvesting and more.

Tom Wheelwright joins us to help you reduce your property tax and cryptocurrency tax. 

Learn why some states have higher property tax than income tax or vice versa - CA, TX, NY, NJ, AK, and more.

Many property tax professionals only get paid based on how much they reduce your property tax.

Learn what works in actually getting your property tax reduced: comparables.

In cryptocurrency, you are taxed on either a sale or an exchange - not just a sale. For example, if you trade bitcoin for ethereum, you have a tax consequence.

If you buy a $3 cup of coffee with crypto, that is usually taxed.

Miners of crypto are taxed when they mine it, not only when they sell it.

Crypto is taxed at capital gains tax rates.

Tom does not believe that crypto will be outlawed in the US. Rather, it will be regulated through taxation and reporting.

Learn why I believe US home prices will rise 9-10% next year. 

That’s higher than historic norms and lower than this year.

Expect higher mortgage interest rates too. 

Counterintuitively, higher mortgage rates correlate with higher housing prices. Higher rates also correlate with lower supply.  

Today, inflation (6.2%) is double of mortgage interest rates (3.1%). 

This means that when you repay the bank, those dollars debase on them twice as fast as the bank’s interest charges can accrue on you.

Since 1994, mortgage rates have risen six times. House prices rose every time. Next year, the same thing is expected to happen; it will be seven in a row.

I explain why higher rates correlate with lower housing supply.

Housing supply has dropped an astounding 63% from two years ago. That’s the housing crash; it was a supply crash.

I talk with the person who I lend money to in order to rehab distressed properties. We discuss how it works and the 6-12% annual returns.

Importantly, many properties are secured in stable, cash flowing Ohio and around the Midwest and South. SFHs are common.

You are the lender, not the borrower. 

Get started at: GetRichEducation.com/Lending

Unlike owning a rental property where a tenant pays you to live there… a private lender program means that someone pays you to “rent out” the use of your money, typically for a year or less.

The operator, Dani Lynn Robison of Freedom Capital Investments in Springboro, Ohio, tells us how she has never lost an investor’s money. 

They have always paid back the lenders’ initial investment, plus interest, as agreed.

Buying a huge $5M apartment building is daunting to most people.

We discuss how you get the money and experience for this.

Investor vocabulary explained: Capital stack, General Partner, Limited Partner, Non-recourse loan, Acquisition fee.

Owning a duplex is different from owning a 200-unit building. With the latter, you’ll have private investors, an on-site manager, and perhaps Yelp reviews to manage. Advertising is different.

Our guest, Michael Blank, emphasizes the importance of doing your first deal - big or small. Do it. That’s when the real learning begins.

Michael excels in teaching you how to find other investors to fund your big apartment deal. To start, merely educate others. Don’t ask for money.

Will Rogers said, “Find out where the people are going and buy the land before they get there.”

Florida in-migration has been a persistent trend since the late 1800s. Again, Florida led US in-migration between 2020 and 2021.

I interview a Florida property provider that I have heard other developers comment about, saying: “I don’t know how they deliver such low prices.”

You don’t have to pay agent markups. Buy direct.

These are new-build SFRs up to four-plexes. Get the report and connect with the provider at: GetRichEducation.com/SunshineState  

These Build-To-Rent properties are in central Florida, including Palm Bay (halfway down the Atlantic coast), Ocala, The Villages (both nw of Orlando) and more.

Growth of industry has been both varied and substantial: medical, technology, finance, international trade, agriculture, aerospace, and more than just tourism. Amazon, Space X, and Blue Origin all have a substantial presence.

This is path of progress real estate investing.

Recent sample property: New-build SFR, 3/2/2, 1,400 sf, concrete block construction, $225K sale price and $249K appraisal. (Appraisals don’t always exceed sale price; that’s a wider gap than usual.)

Build-To-Rent advantages: everything is new, warranties, higher tenant retention, location, provider buys in bulk, built-in equity, lower insurance cost.  

These new-build properties are on both infill and contiguous lots on tracts of land.

SFR communities often have amenities like pickleball courts, swimming pools, and gyms.

Tenant demand is so high that this provider gets first & last month’s rent for you in addition to security deposit.

One question that I’m asked is: “How do I actually buy an investment property?”

I’m going to walk you through it all today, step-by-step.

You know, even after I bought my first property, it would have been difficult to recite all the steps. This is partly due to the process's 30-60+ day duration.

Though real estate has made more ordinary people wealthy than anything else, it is illiquid.

[Watch the video version of this podcast here: https://youtu.be/9jH4_-Bwujs ]

It takes more time to buy and sell real property.

There's no brokerage "point-click-done" or Robinhood swipes here.

This is both a good and bad thing.

Because there are several steps involved, there is no panic selling in real estate.

This illiquidity keeps real estate prices more stable than nearly any other asset class.

This stability (via illiquidity) is one reason why real estate comprises the heart of so many wealthy peoples' portfolios.

Real estate prices are a smooth, glassy lake compared to the raging sea storm of volatile gold, silver, cryptocurrency, oil, and stock markets.

In under 28 minutes, I lay out every step that you must know for buying rental property.

This masterclass-level instruction comes to you without paywalls or logins. I've made it public and free. It includes:

Myriad mistakes to avoid

Improving your credit report and score

A clever way to show a higher income to underwriters

Where I get my loans

Market selection

Property due diligence

Making an offer

Get an inspection (Always!)

Appraisal

Signing a Management Agreement

Property Closing

Own and collect rent (Cha-ching! Finally.)

I’m in Birmingham, Alabama for a real estate field trip today.

Alabama is an investor-advantaged real estate market: low cost of living, some of the nation’s lowest property taxes.

Mindset: I tell a story on affording the time.

One of the most prolific real estate authors, Ken McElroy, joins us. 

I ask him about what happened to his 2021 housing crash prediction.

Ken & I discuss why there haven’t been more evictions since the national eviction ban ended.

We explain why don’t believe this will be massively disruptive. It matters. But to me, evictions will be a diffuse condition, not a sudden one.

Sadly, if a tenant owes their landlord tens of thousands of dollars, they’ll rarely pay.

Ken describes how he’s actively buying big real estate deals in today’s environment.

Landlords collect rent payments. "Lienlords" collect mortgage payments.

Learn how to obtain a stream of mortgage payments by owning the note (an IOU).

I tell you why banks would sell mortgage notes.

Learn the difference between performing and non-performing mortgage notes.

Bob Fraser from Aspen Funds joins us to tell us more.

Fewer borrowers defaulted on their mortgage payments in-pandemic due to forbearance.

Learn why a bank will sell you a mortgage note at a discount.

What happens when a borrower stops paying their mortgage.

There are either first lien or second lien positions to occupy. You wouldn’t expect this, but second liens can often be better due to their deep discounts.

Learn how to qualify for an income property loan today.

We discuss what just made mortgage interest rates for investment property drop 1% overnight.

First, I discuss the difference between adequate safety vs. too much safety for tenants in investment properties.

Too many safety regulations have a cost that gets passed onto tenants and even increases homelessness. 

Caeli Ridge, President of Ridge Lending Group joins me.

A few weeks ago, mortgage interest rates for income property fell a full 1% due to the suspension of added risk layers that were added back in March. 

For an income property loan, you need: 1) 15-20% down payment and ~4% closing costs. 2) Credit score of 680 or better, 3) Show sourced & seasoned liquid assets, and 4) 50% maximum debt-to-income ratio. 

There are pros and cons of paying monthly PMI.

Today’s “typical” income property interest rate = 3.75%.

What happens when you try to get more than 10 income property loans? We discuss the terms, called “non-QM” loans.

When money supply is high, this lowers interest rates. I explain why.

Interest rates & inflation are positively correlated.

Interest rates are usually higher. This upside-down today. 

When interest rates rise, real estate prices rise too (Yes, not fall). Learn why.

Join me this Thursday, Sept. 30th, for a live Texas Properties webinar. Learn more here: www.GetRichEducation.com/Texas

Brien Lundin, organizer of the world’s longest-running investment conference, joins me. It’s the 47th Annual New Orleans Investment Conference. He’s also editor of the Gold Newsletter.

I will attend the event in-person.

Meet me Oct. 19th to 22nd. Sign up here: New Orleans Investment Conference.

Brien does not believe interest rates will rise appreciably anytime soon, nor will the Fed taper. He feels that this will be good for real estate.

The Fed must continue with massive currency creation.

Like many, Brien feels that inflation is not transitory.

Why isn’t the gold price higher than $1,700 - $1,900 per ounce?

Brien likes owning physical bullion. He thinks that crypto is worthwhile.

Should you buy for negative cash flow? Afterall, rents are rising fast; maybe they will catch up. I have a firm answer for you.

With a tight rental market, landlords can skimp on repairs because tenants have few alternative places to live.

Do the right thing. Make repairs. Don’t be a slumlord.

Property bidding wars are subsiding.

Meet me in-person Oct. 19th to 22nd at the New Orleans Investment Conference.

A provider of brand new construction Florida & Georgia investment properties joins me to discuss industry trends, including the challenge of supply shortages.

Developing vast tracts vs. infill lots.

Tenants love living in a new construction. This provider builds SFRs up to 13-unit buildings with vinyl plank floors and stainless steel appliances.

They sell investment properties to individual investors like you, with SFRs in the $200Ks. Start buying property at: GetRichEducation.com/Southeast

Steep rent increases are spreading like a… pandemic.

Some metros are seeing annual rent increases of 10% to 15%.

It's all part of real estate's new "space race".

It’s easier to get big rent increases *between tenancies*, not with your long-term tenants.

GRE’s own Aundrea Newbern joins us to answer, “Should you become a real estate agent?”

Aundrea has her RE license in GA and is now training in her new home state of MI.

Pros of obtaining your license: more information, better access to MLS, training, networking, and income from representing buyers & sellers. 

Cons of obtaining your license: your time, upfront cost & ongoing fees, splitting commissions with your broker, disclosures and liability, traditional licensee activity has little to do with investors. 

Summary: You need to use your license for at least 2-3 deals per year to potentially make it worthwhile.

For real estate in MI and GA, e-mail Aundrea at: aundrea@getricheducation.com

Rents are skyrocketing, up 11.4% just since the start of this year per Apartment List.

Increases like this could mean a 25% increase in your cash flow.

Rod Khleif has made big failures. I mean that in the best way. Ultimately, he was willing to fail often in order to become the giant success that he is today.

He lost $50M in the 2008 crash, even though his properties were at 30% LTV (70% equity).

Rod is a multifamily apartment building investor and syndicator. He motivates many with his successful seminars.  

We discuss “The Law Of The First Deal”.

Who you spend time with is who you become.

He’s an active RE buyer now, with 296 units under contract in San Antonio.

However, he sees an economic contraction coming.

To hedge against a potential RE market downturn, Rod likes to avoid C-Class property. He likes investing in “A” and “B” areas in southern states.

Today’s guest has been a GRE listener since 2019. 

He’s an MBA and Industrial and Manufacturing Engineer at a Fortune 500 Company. He still works at this full-time job.

Eric Schodowski learned about GRE and listened from Episode 1. Leverage, arbitrage, and inflation-profiting were new concepts to him.

When he switched jobs, he was able to access 401(k) and pension funds. Then, rather than living below his means, he expanded his means.

Eric Schodowksi has added 11 rental units: a four-plex in his home market of Baton Rouge, LA,  and turnkey properties in: Memphis, west Florida, and northwest Indiana.

His returns have been as high as 120% per year. 

Eric prefers turnkey real estate investing because it’s “hands-off”. Turnkeys are designed to perform for investors.

A 60% housing drop is what I’m talking about today. That's the real estate crash.

What has driven housing prices 23.4% higher year-over-year? Scarcity, utility, and demand.

I’m talking about a housing *supply* crash, not a price crash.

The guys from Wealth Without Wall Street, Joey Mure and Russ Morgan, join us.

They discuss why Wall Street makes money managers profitable, not individual investors.

Most individual investors are so used to abandoning what they really want, that it’s difficult to remember what their dream even is anymore. 

Racing to “zero debt” is a losing game for most people.

Fifty years ago, money changed forever. Robert Kiyosaki joins us. He’s the “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” author.

President Richard Nixon effectively removed the dollar from the gold standard on August 15th, 1971. We play the audio clip.

Inflation ensued, exceeding 10% in the 1970s and 1980s.

What is money, anyway? I answer.

Gresham’s Law - bad money drives out good.

Kiyosaki tells us why he promotes freedom and economic decentralization.

My solutions to monetary inflation: 1) Real estate debt. 2) Gold. 3) Bitcoin. 4) Spend.

Society and media often lambaste landlords.

I discuss an absurd article titled: “Landlord System Morally Unethical… Contributing Nothing To Society”.

Some slumlords exist, but many landlords are responsible.

Many landlord critics think money is inherently evil.

Damion Lupo joins me to discuss what happened at the latest Real Estate Guys’ Investor Summit.

The homeownership rate is expected to decrease, meaning more renters.

It will take at least a decade to raise housing supply to meet demand.

We discuss whether inflation is here to stay or not.

Damion provides you with the best retirement plan that I’ve ever heard known - the eQRP. Make gains truly tax-free, have $100K+ annual contribution limits, and invest in virtually anything - real estate, crypto, your own business.

Paid-off properties have an opportunity cost that few consider.

Wealthy celebrities that choose mortgages are: Mark Zuckerberg & his wife, Elon Musk, Megan Markle & Prince Harry, Beyonce & Jay-Z, Chrissy Teigen & John Legend, and Charlie Sheen.

I personally have held millions in mortgage debt from a young age. I’ve long had the ability to pay it off, have not, and will not.

Good debt defined: 1) Secured. 2) Low mortgage interest rate. 3) Payments outsourced to tenants. 

How your bank sees your debt: 1) You have insured their collateral. 2) When you improve the property, you improve their collateral. 3) 1-4 unit properties - comparables. 5+ properties - income & debt coverage ratio.

The risk of high mortgage debt is being overleveraged. This means you cannot service the debt payments.

Chris Naghibi joins me. Though he dispenses financial guidance to celebrities, he helps everyday people qualify for mortgages.

We discuss mistakes to avoid with your credit score and debt-to-income ratio.

Learn about today’s appraisal environment.

Today, on average, homes sell for more than the asking price. That’s weird!

The average credit score is now 786 for mortgage borrowers.

Inflation is on the rise. I was just asked to leave a tip at Subway for the first time.

Inflation nudges most people toward poverty. It moves GRE listeners toward prosperity.

Rents for detached SFHs are up 7.9% year-over-year.

The NAR just told us America is 6.8 million housing units short of demand.

World governments are printing, spending, and driving interest rates to all-time lows. Historically, this has led to higher inflation.

I ask Jim Rogers about inflation and the prospects for U.S. hyperinflation. 

He believes interest rates will go higher “in the next few years”. He likes tying up 30-year fixed rate mortgages.

Jim thinks the free market might take control of interest rate policy away from The Fed (wow!).

“The next recession is going to be the worst in my lifetime.” -Jim Rogers

Jim Rogers & I also discuss: MMT, agricultural real estate, cryptocurrency, and advice for a young person.

I explain what CBDCs are - Central Bank Digital Currencies.

Rents are up, up, up. This is because surging home prices are displacing the first-time affordable homebuyer.

Rich Dad Sales Advisor Blair Singer joins us. He helps you get that “little voice” in your head to tell you the right thing.

When you master your little voice, you more often move from employee to business owner or entrepreneur. It takes self-belief. Begin with the end in mind.

Blair tells you why you don’t have to be an attack dog in sales. Just help others!

I try my sales pitch with Blair, then he tells me that my sales style is a retriever.

In a selling situation, the person with the highest energy wins.

Learn the housing price level every year from 1963 to present with an entertaining retrospective - from $18K to $372K.

Top takeaways over time: 1) Real estate usually goes up. 2) Real estate does not always go up.

Housing rents and prices often correct toward each other.

Home prices are rising globally. The highest: Turkey, New Zealand, Luxembourg, and Slovakia. Some of the lower rises are in East Asia.

Canadians can hardly believe that Americans get 30-year fixed rate mortgages, 1031 Like-Kind Exchange.

Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman believes that high housing demand is cooling off and the market is normalizing.

Building a home has never been more expensive.

I cover a case study for you about how new-build Boise single-family ranch homes had a sale price increase of $472K up to $747K over the last two years.

Your tenant is probably doing better this year than last. Unemployment is down to 5.8%.

Rent amounts are more stable than home prices.

I draw the line. Current rent vs. own dividing lines are 0.7% RV ratio and $250K purchase price.

You can still find decent $100K - $150K properties in: Memphis, Little Rock, Cincinnati and Dayton

Will the rise of 3-D printed homes make housing construction so cheap that values of all existing homes will depreciate?

I explore this with you. 

It’s the third installment of our 3-part housing supply crisis series.

3-D printing uses lots of concrete. It is the world’s most popular building material.

No matter how one builds, there are still costs of: labor, land, materials, design & planning, architecture & engineering, site work & drainage, and regulation.

A recent NAHB study shows that the regulatory cost of building a new single-family home is a staggering $94,000.

Is the economy REALLY coming back? 

Where is inflation headed? 

Hyperinflation & real estate is discussed.

I tell you what surprising investment I personally made last month. 

Then, what’s an important part of your investor mindset that you probably haven’t thought about before? 

Through Q3 of last year, homeowners have an all-time inflation-adjusted high of $257K in equity.

Some NYC mayoral candidates have embarrassing perceptions of Brooklyn housing costs.

A shipping container costs less than $5,000. Why doesn’t America build more housing with them?

Gregg Cohen of JWB Real Estate Capital in Jacksonville, FL reveals how their 18-unit shipping container apartment complex created financial loss.

The shipping container apartments are 320 square feet each.

Learn about: what a vertically integrated company is, build-to-rent homes, turnkey real estate, the pros and cons of shipping container housing, permitting, and zoning constraints. 

Making shipping containers livable adds expense: windows, heating, cooling, electricity, water, ventilation and fire safety. 

JWB blew their budget! $1.3M budget vs. $2M reality. 

Gregg estimates that shipping container building costs them 20-30% more than conventional wood frame construction.

Their non-pandemic rent collection = 98.5%

In-pandemic rent collection worst = 97%

2020 rent collection total = 98%

Kristin B. Tate (FOX News, CNN, MSNBC) joins me to discuss Biden tax and housing policies, inflation, and investing.

President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.’s bill to create a $15,000 first-time homebuyer tax credit is wrong. It helps the demand side. America needs help on the supply side. I give ideas.

Biden wants to severely limit the 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange for real estate investors. Only your first $500K of gains would be exempt from capital gains tax.

This would cause a rush of sales in the real estate market. It would also hurt long-term liquidity for larger apartment buildings. 

Zumper’s National Rent Report shows substantial rent increases in many Midwest and South real estate markets. I detail them.

Next, Kristin B. Tate tells us why printing trillions of dollars means that investors should get out of the dollar.

We discuss Joe Biden’s proposed increases to both income tax and capital gains tax.

Kristin favors buying real estate assets to hedge against inflation: real estate, physical gold & silver, and cryptocurrency.

Today, available homes are as scarce as a rare earth mineral. 

Under 500K homes are available for sale today, well below the historic 1M-1.5M at any given time Source: Federal Reserve.

High demand exists independent of low inventory.

Developers and homebuilders need years to help us build our way out.

The development team of Rob Fuller and Jared Garfield tell us how today’s developers cope with the rising cost and unpredictable supply of: copper, lumber, PVC and other building materials.

Their project in Colorado Springs, CO is in the path of progress. In 2019, U.S. News & World Report named the area the #1 Economy In America.

The Denver Post stated that by 2050, Colorado Springs will be larger than Denver. (Wow)

The project is 800 acres of higher-end homes on 2.5-acre lots. Homes start in the high $600Ks. That does not work for cash flow via direct ownership.

This is not “spec building”. Homeowners have already funded with non-refundable earnest money.

You can project a construction loan to the project yourself. Cash-on-cash returns are 9% to 15%, depending on the investment amount. $100K minimum. Learn more about this project at www.GetRichEducation.com/ColoradoSprings

Investors have substantial guarantees and financial buffers. 

This is an A+ real estate asset class.

You can view weekly project drone footage. On-site visits are available. I might attend one where you could meet me in-person in Colorado Springs.

Three reasons NOT to buy income property: 1) It is illiquid. 2) Speculative mania without cash flow. 3) You want zero involvement.

With that understanding, direct ownership of rental real estate still has the best risk-adjusted return today.

President Biden wants to keep people in their homes. He doesn’t want residents removed from their homes under his watch - both homeowners and renters.

Higher mortgage interest rates lead to both higher prices and lower supply. This is counterintuitive to many. I explain why. 

The last six times that interest rates rose in America, housing prices rose too.

I read the menu prices from McDonald’s restaurant in 1974. It makes inflation’s effect apparent.

Then Ken McElroy joins me. Together we discuss how inflation affects consumers and real estate investors from an in-person video at his Scottsdale, AZ office.

Ken reminds us how high inflation can go. It was 15% for a time in the 1980s.

Your home is a liability, not an asset.

That’s according to Robert Kiyosaki. This is because your home takes money out of your pocket every month. An asset puts money into your pocket. 

Today’s guest, author and economist Daniel Amerman, has a different perspective. 

He states that forces like inflation and a mortgage (leverage) make your primary residence a strong investment vehicle.

Daniel’s research shows that historically, homeowners nearly double their equity in three years, triple it in seven years, and quadruple it in ten years (80% LTV loan).

We discuss whether home price increases are derived from appreciation or inflation.

First, I remind you why financially-free beats debt-free. Convert equity to cash flow. Extra mortgage principal paydown does the opposite - it converts cash flow to equity.

Classically, on a balance sheet, your home is an asset.

Remember that a homeowner’s return is not generated from equity. It is generated from the local housing market.

Hear my rant about how carpet beats hardwood floors.

Learn how to bring as little money as possible to the property closing table. 

Ridge Lending Group President Caeli Ridge tells us how to do this. She also predicts the future interest rate direction.

Mortgage interest rates hit all-time lows three months ago. Freddie Mac has tracked rates since 1971.

The 30-year fixed rate mortgage debuted in America in 1948. It’s an incredible tool that few, if any, other world nations have.

Before this, it took a 50% down payment and refinancing every 3-5 years.

Mortgage rates have been falling for 700 years! From the year 1311, we look at interest rate history in the French Crown, Spanish Crown, Italian merchants in Milan, Genoa.

The latest marker of today’s low housing supply is the fact that there are currently more real estate agents than available homes.

Is rush hour traffic a thing of the past? We explore this.

Caeli Ridge helps us understand the ominous new 7% Fannie Mae funding limit on single-family mortgages on second homes and investment properties. Result = higher loan prices.

Does it make sense to pay discount points at the closing table? Discount points are like prepaid interest. We explore pros and cons.

Often, a seller can pay up to 2% of your purchase closing costs.

Caeli predicts the future direction of interest rates. I’m refinancing properties with Ridge myself right now. Start at: www.RidgeLendingGroup.com

The Fed is about to unleash a tidal wave of liquidity that you probably don’t know about.

I was recently at my favorite Mexican takeout restaurant. It was the first time they began asking for tips. This is inflation. It is likely not measured in CPI or Core PCE.

Richard Duncan from MacroWatch joins us to discuss how the coming monetary tsunami will stoke asset prices. 

This can continue the “price runup party” in real estate, stocks, crypto, and other assets.

Key learning: The Fed changes inflation policy when they see wage price growth, not commodity price growth.

Inflation won’t be high enough to cause interest rates to rise anytime soon.

We know that the Fed currently creates $120B per month. What few know about is the new, simultaneous $900B that the Fed is releasing from their Treasury General Account by the end of June. 

More currency + monetary velocity = inflation? No. Richard says there’s more to it, like credit expansion.

The newly passed $1.9T American Rescue Plan, plus a new Biden-proposed multi-trillion dollar infrastructure bill could stoke inflation in the short to medium-term. Richard does not believe high inflation is sustainable long-term. 

Get 50% off Richard Duncan’s “MacroWatch” when you use Discount Code “GRE” at: www.RichardDuncanEconomics.com

Though consumer price inflation should stay low, a lot of asset price inflation should continue.

Richard also reveals a scenario where interest rates could decline.

With shrinking national housing supply amidst surging demand, some investors cannot find sufficient inventory.

People are moving to places like: Texas, Tennessee, and Florida.

Suburban properties have higher appeal with today’s work-at-home trends.

New construction properties in infill areas have advantages: an established area, neighbors with equity.

To get money for real estate, you don’t always have to save up every dollar yourself.

You can use: 

Equity from another property - my favorite

Seller-paid closing costs

Seller financing

House hacking

Rent income from duplexes and fourplexes

Lease-Purchase Agreement

Mortgage assumptions

Seller-held second mortgages 

Syndication

Partnerships

Ken McElroy joins me to discuss how to attract investors to your real estate deal and more.

He outlines borrowing from your 401(k) and using your retirement plan for real estate.

Teach others about what you know. Just give with nothing in return expected. People will trust you later when you have a real estate deal.

Will a housing price crash occur when homes can be foreclosed upon again?

Sean O’Toole of PropertyRadar.com and I compare 2007’s housing crash with 2021’s health crisis-related recession.

“Home prices never go down.” That’s what many people said in 2005! Wrong.

Learn the housing differences between the last recession and the current one: lending standards, housing supply, regulatory change, construction labor force, construction supply disruptions, household formation.

Sean tells why we will not have a big dump of housing supply on this market anytime soon.  

There will still be some delinquent homeowners after the forbearance period ends.

The Biden Administration plans to work with borrowers that have federally-backed mortgage companies and provide them with repayment plans.

Prediction from Sean: mortgage rates will dip below 2%.

If you hold a savings account, you’re a lender. You lent money to the bank and they pay you under 1%.

You can lend for real estate, get a 6-12% cash yield with low hassle, and hold real estate as collateral.

This is some of the most passive, hassle-free income in all of real estate.

Learn more at: www.getricheducation.com/lending

Typically, a real estate company seeks to: buy a distressed home for $50K, pay another $20K to rehab it, then sell it for a profit. That $70K is what they seek private lenders for.

This means that the real estate company can provide the distressed seller with a quick, all-cash closing. (Remember, these properties can’t be financed with banks.)

Loan duration is often twelve months.

Dani Lynn Robison of Springboro, Ohio-based Freedom Real Estate Group tells us how Private Money Lending works.

Everyday investors like you can fund this with cash, retirement accounts and HELOCs.

Today’s guest reveals how he gets $10,755 of monthly cash flow with four SFHs. They’re long-term rental tenants.

I tell you why a man with $20 million of debt is a financial winner, making analogies to Brett Favre and Cy Young.

Ryan Chaw of Sacramento, CA joins us. A full-time pharmacist, he’s age 29, on track to retire from real estate income by age 31.

Unusually, he invests in California single-family homes (SFHs). It’s not an area known for cash flow. 

He rents them to carefully-screened college students. He self-manages, but hasn’t visited his properties in over a year.

In areas like Stockton, CA, he gets $3,000 rent from a $300K SFH.

Ryan uses his “PRIME” Method: Placement of ads, Review applicants’ social media, Identify tenant type, Measure responsiveness, and Ensure proof of income.  

He has 17 tenants in four SFHs. 

Ryan gets money for down payments with his W-2 job. He also uses a HELOC to reset his leverage and create arbitrage.

He travels the world too. He won’t delay all gratification.

Hear a mock negotiation between Chris Voss & I for a fourplex building today!

The former lead international hostage negotiator for the FBI, Chris is now America’s top negotiation coach.

In a negotiation: Who goes first? Does “anchoring” work?

In real estate, terms are often more important than price.

“Never be so sure of what you want that you wouldn’t take something better.” -Chris Voss, today's show

He does not use the term “win-win”. It’s a giveaway that someone is trying to pick your pocket.

The “other side” always has hidden cards that could benefit you.

Be curious. A positive mind frame makes you 31% smarter.

At times, it helps to address “fairness” at the beginning of a negotiation.

Let the word “no” out softly.

If there’s an elephant in the room, address it.

Chris uses the “mirroring” technique on me. He makes me think that conceding was own idea! Amazing.

He has free negotiation resources for you. For his newsletter, text blackswanmethod to 33777. Outside the U.S., go to: www.blackswanltd.com 

Silence and humor are effective negotiation techniques in certain situations.

I tell Chris my favorite negotiation line and get his opinion: “What flexibility do you have?”

After your first 10 rental properties, what comes next?

Buying more than 10 financed properties of 1-4 units often incurs an interest rate about 2% higher.

Apartment buildings of 5+ units is an option.

You can become a real estate syndicator. It is sophisticated. This means you identify a big real estate complex and attract other investors’ money to the deal. 

Syndications often SEC-regulated. To attract investors, you must also build your brand.

You can be a private money lender with a stable 10% cash-on-cash return. Real estate is your collateral. See: www.getricheducation.com/lending

With agricultural real estate, the trees are the tenants. They don’t vacate the property and they’re low maintenance. The asset literally grows; land is titled to you. See: www.getricheducation.com/teak   

“Family offices” manage wealth for affluent families and individuals. They might cost $1M per year, meaning you’d often need assets of $100M+.

Direct real estate investors “feel the bumps”. I recently had a truck accident-damaged property that was in disrepair for 9 months!

This year, John Burns RE Consulting predicts existing home prices to rise +8%, new homes +9%.

It took Tesla 17 years to make a profit. You often do this in 1 month with real estate.

Damion Lupo drops by with crucial eQRP updates. An eQRP lets you: invest your retirement funds in nearly anything, $58,000 annual contribution limit, no custodian, and avoid a 37% UBIT tax hit (like you have with SD-IRAs).

Joe Biden’s economic plan for real estate investors is detailed.

Expect: higher income tax, extended eviction & foreclosure moratoriums, $15 minimum wage, $15K first-time homebuyer tax credit, more stimulus checks.

Can landlords still evict tenants for non-payment of rent? Yes. I explain how.  

With all this money printing, I expect inflation to stay low due to low velocity.

Ken McElroy joins me again today. He’s the Rich Dad real estate advisor.

Migration patterns per U-Haul favor these top 5 states: TN, TX, FL, OH, AZ. #1 for out-migration last year was CA.

72% of people move within the same state, per Ken.

Today’s tenant trends: Larger units, security gates, pets, outdoor lighting, small yards, remote rent collection. Proximity to central business districts is less important. Pets attract seniors.

Ken has increased income by embracing pets, and reduced expenses by requiring that tenants have Renters Insurance.

Learn about how he handled recessionary apartment income disruptions for his investors.

My housing prediction for the next few years is revealed at the beginning of the show.

Learn why higher interest rates mean less housing supply. 

Learn how to buy new construction income properties as inexpensively as $169K at: www.getricheducation.com/southeast

Last year: Real estate was up 11%, mortgage rates fell from 3.72% down to 2.67%, inflation fell from 2.5% to 1.4%, S&P 500 up 16%, dollar weakened, bitcoin surged 400%+, gold & silver had their best years since 2010, oil down 21%. 

“Build-To-Rent” (B2R) means that properties are constructed with tenant-occupants, not owner-occupants. 

Durable finishes are used, like cement hardie board, vinyl plank flooring, and granite countertops.

B2R single-family homes as low as $169K (new construction). Duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes are also offered in Florida and Georgia at: www.getricheducation.com/southeast

Tenants in these B2R properties often have incomes of $100K+.

Today’s renters want a yard, even if it’s small. They don’t want a fireplace. With remote working trends, proximity to an urban area is now less important.

Has “debt-free” now become a poverty marker?

Debt is good when: 1) The interest rate is lower than inflation, and 2) When tenants pay your debt for you.

Get our free “Don’t Quit Your Daydream” Letter at: www.getricheducation.com/letter

Home equity is: unsafe, illiquid, and its rate of return is always zero.

If you pay an extra $100 toward your mortgage principal, you just converted your cash flow to equity. That’s the opposite of financial freedom.

Learn myriad reasons for removing equity from property: a litigious society, natural disasters, job loss, and more.

Paying down your low interest rate debt won’t create wealth. But using debt to create residual income streams can.

More equity = more risk.

Why would you even want to be debt-free?

Learn mistakes to avoid and how to buy a distressed property at a discount at a foreclosure auction.

First, the average borrower now has $194K in home equity due to high recent home price appreciation. Only 3% have a negative equity position.

Freddie Mac shows home prices up 9.7% year-over-year.

First American’s Real House Price Index accounts for home prices, interest rates, inflation, and affordability. The surprise? Real prices are down 26.8% since January 2000.  

Today’s guest, Colin Murphy, is an acknowledged expert in buying properties at foreclosure auctions. He reveals how it works in some Florida counties.

Death, divorce, drugs, and unemployment can all lead to a borrower missing mortgage payments and having their property fall into foreclosure.

Foreclosure auctions have moved online in states like Florida (but not Texas). Often, you must give a 5% deposit at bid time, 95% balance paid same-day.

2 minutes of bidding per property. 

Learn how high one should bid on a foreclosure property. You can find mortgage, lien and permit information online. You must know how to estimate renovation costs. Assume the worst.

Foreclosure moratoria have created low inventory levels in the market.

The deal is the debt. Why? Because mortgage rates are at all-time lows. People are buying property like crazy.

Learn why 30-year fixed rate mortgages are a great deal for the borrower and a bad deal for the lender. 

Caeli Ridge, President of Ridge Lending Group, tells us about qualifying for income property loans today. 

Your first 10 loans single / 20 loans married for 1-4 unit properties have the best rates and terms: 20-25% down, 50% max. DTI, super low interest rates.

For more loans, called “non-QM” loans: $135K minimum size, 75% LTV, higher interest rates. 

Opinion: Fannie & Freddie will stay in conservatorship, keeping mortgage rates low.

Conforming loan limits will increase from $510,400 to $548,250 (SFH), and higher for 2-4 unit properties.

Rate & term refinances - SFH: 80% LTV | 2-4 unit: 75% LTV

Cash out refinance terms - SFH: 75% LTV | 2-4 unit: 70% LTV

We get an update on appraisal climate. I educate you on the three appraisal approaches: cost, income, comparison.

Ridge does loans in 43 of the 50 states, all except: AK, ME, ND, NY, VT, WV, WY.

How would you value a four-plex in bitcoin?

The world’s largest cryptocurrency, bitcoin, needs more stable pricing to gain faith for widespread currency use.

Crypto pros: Generational, international, blockchain, increasing faith.

Crypto cons: Security, not widely accepted, short history, volatile, government intervention fear, no price bottom.

Learn the pros and cons of buying rehabbed & tenanted turnkey property vs. doing it all yourself. Find property here: www.GREturnkey.com

Three big reasons people don’t invest in real estate:

  1. They don’t understand the rates of return.
  2. They don’t know about turnkey real estate.
  3. Many think you must be a flipper or landlord.

Turnkey pros: Save time & hassle, leverage economies of scale, leverage professionals, geo-diversification. 

Turnkey cons: Higher initial cost, risk of suspicious pre-placed tenants.

A crystal ball prediction for the housing market does not exist. 

The best measure may be the forward-looking Homebuilder Confidence Index. It just hit an all-time high for optimism.

Interest rate direction has little to do with housing prices. But it helps.

Real estate is not an asset. Real estate derivatives are assets, whether it be a mortgage or a lease.

Gregg Cohen of JWB Real Estate Capital joins us. He’s a longtime provider of new construction turnkey rental property in Jacksonville, FL. See their properties at: CashFlowAndGrowth.com 

We discuss how appreciation makes long-term real estate investors more money than cash flow, amortization, tax benefits or inflation-profiting.

Learn how to keep insidious thieves from stealing your wealth - taxes and inflation.

Higher taxes = lower inflation. I tell you why.

The IRS does not recognize inflation in regard to capital gains.

I discuss property tax, income tax, and sales tax state-by-state. Many coastal states have high property tax and income tax; southern states have high sales tax. 

A recent Harris poll showed that work-from-home types value saving money on lunch and gas more than being with their family or having extra time! (Geez.)

Tom Wheelwright joins me. Tax brackets are marginal, so use your childrens’ lower tax brackets.

The last dollar you earn is taxed at your highest taxable rate.

The first dollar of a tax deduction comes off your highest taxable rate.

Tax credits beat tax deductions.

Reducing your property tax can be fairly easy.

In this recession, people still ask me how housing prices and demand are surging. I explain.

Then, I discuss the highest cash-flowing hands-off investment I’ve ever heard of. Learn more here.

Subscribe to our Don’t Quit Your Daydream Letter here

Cash use is increasing, not declining. In fact, the CEOs of PayPal and Venmo even say that cash will be in use for decades.

An individual investor like you can own a lot of 6 ATMs.

ATMs are profitable because some users pay a $2-$3 surcharge to access a $20 bill.

$2,184 is your monthly cash flow. The operator has never missed a monthly payment nor their pro forma projection. ~19% ROI plus tax benefits like bonus depreciation.

In the pandemic, some ATM locations have fared worse, like airports; some better, like a Walgreens. Many people want to withdraw & store money in the pandemic.

Will home prices stop rising soon? No. I tell you why. It’s my prediction.

Subscribe to our newsletter here

Four reasons home prices will keep rising in the short and intermediate-term are:

  1. Undersupply. America is already undersupplied 2.5 - 3.3 million housing units.
  2. Pent-up demand. More 18-29 year-olds live with their parents now at any time since The 1930s Great Depression. When they get jobs & move out, pent-up housing demand will be released.
  3. Homebuilder roadblocks. The top factor is wildly elevated lumber costs that has made some builders stop building.
  4. Population growth. America grows at 4,800 people every day, nearly 2 million annually.

Many Americans have been suffering from a lapse in federal pandemic stimulus relief. Hear a Nancy Pelosi clip about this.

I discuss hands-on ways to improve your properties’ appeal: paint, flooring blemishes, light fixtures, cabinets, vanities, front door.

Concerns about the HUD Section 8 Program are: you must screen tenants harder, property inspections from the HUD case manager. 

Section 8 tenants have more motivation to pay rent because they don’t want to lose their housing voucher. They have longer tenancies and are less demanding during tenancies.

Your goal might be $15K of monthly real estate income and a $3M net worth within twenty years.

To achieve this, I explain why getting trapped in the future is as bad as getting trapped in the past. 

Start early, understand there will be bumps in the road, don’t overanalyze, the worst case scenario almost never occurs, and don’t “time the market”.

Today’s guest offers both rehabbed and new construction rental homes in a thriving market where the numbers work - west Florida. 

If you’re pre-qualified for a mortgage (or paying all-cash), get started buying investment property at: GetRichEducation.com/WestFlorida.

Buying one property, one time won’t change your life.

When you’re young, you’re more likely to want a low-priced rental property with higher cash flow and higher maintenance = existing construction.

When you’re older, you’re more likely to afford a higher-priced rental property with lower cash flow and less maintenance = new construction.

House flippers have spending money; buy-and-hold investors build real wealth.

At its core, it’s simple - rent houses to people.

GRE's own Aundrea Newbern joins us!

Besides working with GRE, Aundrea is an active RE agent in Brunswick, GA. She owns 28 rental doors and has her MBA in Finance.

She owns long-term rental SFHs and apartments, including some Section 8 tenants. She self-manages.

Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer Flavor Flav “drops in” to congratulate the show on 3 million listener downloads.

Aundrea tells you nine ways to avoid being outbid in today’s hot real estate market:

1 - Pick a buyer agent that’s courteous to the selling agent.

2 - Write a letter or send a video to the seller.

3 - Agree to use the seller’s preferred title agent, lender.

4 - Offer more than the asking price. 

5 - Offer more earnest money than the customary 1-2%.

6 - Add an escalation clause.

7 - Simply ask what it takes to get your offer accepted same-day.

8 - State that you’ll pay out of pocket in case there’s a low appraisal.

9 - Consider waiving the inspection. (This is risky.)

The pandemic has fueled remote work.

A New Yorker paying $4,000 rent in a 1 BR apartment can now work from Florida, paying $1,500 rent in a 3 BR & 2 BA single-family home.

Central Florida benefits from this in-migration. 

Florida has law that favors landlords, zero state income tax, a low cost of living, beach proximity and of course, warm weather.

Get the report and learn more at: www.GetRichEducation.com/Orlando

These Central Florida Build-To-Rent properties are brand new. 

They often appraise for $5,000 to $10,000+ more than your purchase price. That’s built-in equity.

Your rent-to-price ratio is often 0.8% to 0.9% for single-family rentals. The average tenant stay is 3+ years in this new construction.

Get the report and learn more at: www.GetRichEducation.com/Orlando

The growth and economic diversity in the region is astounding.

The time is likely “now”: brand new construction, high rent occupancy, cash flow, low interest rates, low insurance premiums, low $160K - $220K property cost.

Welcome to Get Rich Education. I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. Is homeownership a sham? Is it a rip-off? 

 

When it comes to the home that you live in yourself, is it better for you to pay rent to a landlord, or own that home yourself? 

 

For your primary residence, what should you do in your specific life situation? You’ll learn today … on Get Rich Education.

 

——————-

 

Welcome to GRE! From Syracuse, Sicily, Italy to Syracuse, New York and across 188 nations worldwide. I’m Keith Weinhold, this is Get Rich Education.

 

Usually on this show, you learn about how buy-and-hold rental property, when bought strategically - produces wealth. We’ll return to that next week, but today ...

 

… it’s about your primary residence. And, when we talk about, should you own your home or is it better for you to pay rent to a landlord - think about how important this is. 

 

Because whether I’ve had the chance to meet you yet or not, there’s one thing that I definitely know about you, and that is, you are always going to live … somewhere.

 

Your housing expense is one of the biggest financial expenses in your life.   

 

Despite that it’s such a substantial financial decision for you, some people revert to orthodoxy - this FLAWED orthodoxy where they think that owning is always better. That’s not true.

 

I really want you to watch your mind as I tell you this today, because there are very likely a few tripwires installed there … and I am about to hit some of them. So do your best to remain calm … if you must.

 

Though more people are waking up to the fact that renting is sometimes better, I still think that popular culture has long reinforced this misplaced notion that owning is always better.   

 

“Are you a homeowner, Greg? No. I rent. Oh.” 

 

Haha! That’s from the classic comedy movie “Meet The Parents”. Owen Wilson & Ben Stiller - while Robert De Niro - the future father-in-law was party to that chat where he’s thinking that the homeowner is the more apropos suitor for his daughter than the renter is. 

 

Look, if you can OWN a home and your monthly housing payment is $2,500, but you could instead PAY RENT on an equivalent home for $1,500 - now your cash flow has increased by $1,000. That’s money in your pocket today that could be re-invested at a rate of return.

 

Now with your $2,500 housing payment in this example - that’s more than just a mortgage payment remember. 

 

When you own, your HOUSING payment consists of mortgage principal & interest, property tax, property insurance, maintenance, repairs, utilities and more. You’ve got to add all that up to get to $2,500. 

 

What about that TIME it took you on HOW to repair the leaky faucet when you owned the home? Factor that in.

 

Now, the homeowner might reply, but at least part of my $2,500 payment is building equity for me. Yes, it is. A minority of that payment is building equity. You’d rather have equity - you’d rather have principal paydown than lose it to interest. 

 

And you’d rather have equity than nothing.

 

But, as I’ve discussed extensively elsewhere - so I won’t do that again here - home equity is unsafe, illiquid, and it’s rate of return is always zero.

 

You can probably repeat that to me at this point - ha! 

 

Also, what’s more important in your life? Cash flow or equity? Cash flow is what creates financial freedom. As an investor in the pursuit of freedom, in fact, you want to CONVERT your equity to cash flow. 

 

Remember, in this $1,500 rent payment vs. $2,500 housing payment scenario on your primary residence … it’s the renter that has the additional $1,000 cash flow and the homeowner that builds the equity.

 

Let me remind you. If you would like to READ along as you listen to the show today or you know someone that’s hearing impaired, you can read the complete transcript to this episode at GetRichEducation.com/309. 

 

That’s GetRichEducation.com/309 to see all the Show Notes and the entire written transcript for this episode. 

 

Well, some people think that buying & owning their primary residence is: "LIke paying rent. Except you get to keep it." Well,that has caused millions of people to buy houses that they later regret. 

 

I know a young, married couple - Jerome and Jessica - they’ve got two kids. They wanted to move from snowy Anchorage, Alaska to Las Vegas, Nevada. They had lived their entire lives in Anchorage and were tired of the snow and wanted some heat. 

 

You think that they might discover an overcorrection problem, btw? Vegas is in the middle of the Mojave Desert. But anyway ...

 

They had owned their Anchorage home for five years before they put it up for sale. That was the first home that they ever owned - starter home.

 

Had they been renting that home - they could have moved where they wanted to in as little as a month. 

 

But as homeowners, by the time they made all the make-ready repairs to the home, got it listed for sale, had to repeatedly prepare their home for showings - meaning they had to intermittently get their home in pristine condition to make it look good for showings - uprooting their lives every time … they finally sold it in 4-½ months by the time their buying got their financing in order & inspections & appraisal & the deal actually closed.

 

If Jerome and Jessica had been renters instead, they could have been on their way in a month.

 

Plus, over the five years, their home appreciated a little, but not enough to offset the 4% closing costs when they had bought five years earlier, all the maintenance & repairs that they had put into place DURING the five years they lived there, plus then they then had to pay a real estate agent a 5% commission when they sold.

 

They not only lost money by owning, they lost time, they lost mobility. They didn’t have liquidity.

 

For Jerome and Jessica, they got a lesson. “Paying rent is not the same as throwing money away.”

 

Well, I can tell you, Jerome and Jessica moved to Vegas one year ago now. They have been renting from Day One there, they’re still renting, and they have no plans to buy in Vegas anytime soon.

 

“Paying rent is not throwing money away” because you get the BENEFIT as using that space as a home, a place to sleep, prepare food, eat, shower, study, entertain - how in the world is that throwing money away? It isn’t. 

 

You know that I’ve told you on this show before that paying rent is not throwing money away just like the five hour flight that you took from Boston to Phoenix last year wasn’t throwing money away.

 

No one called it throwing money away when you paid $500 to “rent” that airline seat for five hours. Why, because you had the BENEFIT of travelling somewhere.

 

Sheesh, how far are people going to take it with this nonsense that “Paying rent is like throwing money away?”

 

Your gym membership is $50 a month. But you didn’t get to take a set of the 40-pound hex dumbbells home after six months of membership did you?

 

Gosh, how far would you take this nonsense line of reasoning?

 

You like to go mini-golfing? I’ll bet that you paid some portion of your fee to rent the put-put club and a little orange golf ball for two hours.

 

How are you going to think - that you now expect to own equity in a put-put golf club that’s all nicked-up and was used by 80 different people? Sheesh, that’s ridiculous. 

 

You had the benefit of a gym membership because you’re healthier. You had the benefit of mini-golfing because you like some recreation. You didn’t throw money away.

 

What about renting an RV for a week? You didn’t throw money away. You had the benefit of using it.

 

This whole misguided notion that paying rent for a place to live is throwing money away is a … replete farce. 

 

But that also doesn’t mean that renting your primary residence is always better than owning either. 

 

Well, let me give you some numbers here. This will help you debunk that notion that - ad infin-I-tum, homeownership is better.

 

Look, in a place like Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood, a small apartment has, just for simplicity, say a rent-to-value ratio of three-tenths of one-percent.

 

That’s a lousy deal if you’re the landlord and an awesome deal if you’re the renter. 

 

So, what that means is that market rent is only $300 per $100K worth of property. That’s that three-tenths of 1%.

 

That ratio might then be $3,000 of rent on a $1M apartment in Tribeca, Manhattan.

 

But look, in a place like Memphis, Tennessee or Little Rock Arkansas, the rent-to-value ratio might be a full 1%. 

 

Now see, if you’re a renter here, you’d have to pay $1,000 for every $100K worth of property. (Not $300 like Manhattan)  

 

Well, in that case, it makes more sense for you to own your home. 

 

BTW, it also then, makes sense for you to own Memphis real estate & rent it to others - because for every $100K of Memphis property you own, you’d RECEIVE $1,000 in rent. You’d RECEIVE a full 1%.

 

Generally, on the coasts, it’s better to pay rent for your primary residence - and in the heartland, it’s better to own that real estate - whether you’re renting it to others OR living there yourself.

 

But there are so many more considerations here than just numbers and geography. So, what else makes sense to your specific situation?

 

And before I go on, please don’t think that I’m “against” the real estate AGENT industry. That’s not true. Gosh, I’ll stand up for a GOOD real estate agent when it makes sense.

 

For example, when it comes to selling your home, you might not want to pay a 5 or 6% sales commission to an agent. Some people would rather sell it themselves and pay 1 or 2%.

 

But what some sellers fail to consider is that an agent might help you get 4% more for it because they know how to reach more buyers, and do it fast, and save you a lot of hassle and uncertainty.

 

So, there’s just one example of how I’ll stick up for agents when it makes sense.  

 

But, getting back to should you own or rent your primary residence, I’m here to help you decide what’s best for you. You’ve ultimately got to decide. 

 

I WILL tell you when it’s better to be a homeowner than rent shortly. But first ...

A recent survey from Freedom Debt Relief shows that homeowners have many regrets when it comes to the purchase of a new home, mostly because they are largely unprepared for the initial cost and the ongoing financial responsibility that comes with homeownership. 

Of the 1,028 people surveyed, 29% said homeownership makes them feel anxious and stressed, while 26% said the cost of owning a home is a burden and they wished they were renting instead.

When it comes to affording house payments, it was Millennials and Gen Z homeowners who said they are struggling the most. Half of these homeowners said property taxes turned out to be higher than they expected, while 52% said their monthly mortgage payments are too high. 

With renting comes an always-available maintenance team and the ability to call the landlord when there is a problem.

Conversely, homeowners have to mow their own lawn, paint their own walls and fix their own leaky faucets. 

And some of these tasks have homeowners shelling out more cash than they planned, with 59% saying maintenance and repairs are more costly and require more effort than expected, and 60% saying they cannot afford needed upgrades. 

That said, it seems the idea of owning a home is still attached to the concept of what it means to succeed in this country, with 59% of homeowners saying they believe that owning a home is still part of the American dream. 

I’d like to add that the survey was conducted “pre-pandemic”.

 

Most people think that owning a home is a financial asset.

 

That's debatable.

 

The Rich Dad school of thought is known for saying that, "A home is a liability, not an asset". 

 

An asset puts money into your pocket every month. A home is a liability because it takes money out of your pocket every month.

 

Of course, in the conventional sense, a home is in your asset column and it’s mortgage is in your liability column.

 

Though owning a home is often a poor financial investment, you still tie up a lot of money in your humble abode. 

 

You really have more than two choices in how you live - it’s actually more than just rent or own. 

 

You have four choices in how you live: you can own your home, pay rent to a landlord, be homeless, or live with your parents – ha!

 

We’re only discussing two here: Rent vs. Own.

 

Fannie Mae associates “Home ownership with the American Dream.” in their marketing slogan. 

 

In America, how many people own their homes vs. rent their homes anyway? About 2/3rds own and ⅓ rent. The homeownership rate is currently about 68%. 

 

Well, I’ve probably got your wheels turning now on “rent vs. own”. 

 

Let’s break things down further. I’ve got 16 factors that I came up with here for you to consider, many of which you’ve never thought about before - on this.

 

Often it’s an exercise in pros vs. cons for you. Often, it’s rationalizing a series of trade-offs for you. 

 

The first of these 16 factors is ...

  • Mobility. Many people move more often than they expect. Renting keeps you nimble. With a new job opportunity or life change like marriage and kids, your mobility is an asset. A homeowner that moves a lot gets eaten up and beaten up with closing costs, make-ready expenses, and sales commissions. Kinda like where I told you about Jerome, Jessica, and their two kids.

 

  • Choice. There are more homes for sale than there are rentals, especially at the higher end. See if you want to rent a high-end place, they’re often really hard-to-find, especially in a more rural area. Renting of high-end homes limits your choice. You might feel like you HAVE to buy to get what you want.

 

  • Equity Buildup. Equity is the difference between what your home is worth and how much you owe on a mortgage. Homeowners build equity; renters don’t. Equity is like a forced savings plan. But equity is an awful investment with zero return. Your return is zero because the presence or absence of home equity has nothing to do with whether or not your home appreciates. (Yet you would rather have equity than nothing.) Houses make terrible “banks” - they’re bad places to store cash.

 

  • Liquidity. Though most homeowners build equity, it’s difficult to access. To tap your home equity, you must prove to a bank that you qualify again, wait months, incur costs, and you still might be denied access to the equity.
  • Opportunity Cost. Many tie up a 20% down payment or more in home equity. As I’ve stated, those equity dollars are low-use, zero return dollars. Instead, your chunk of money can be earning a return for you elsewhere.

 

  • Sunk Cost. This is an overlooked killer for homeowners. I mentioned some of them already. Mortgage loan closing costs, constant home maintenance and repairs, property taxes, utilities, landscaping, snow removal, leaf raking, rototilling, replacing obsolete fixtures and appliances, roofing, and painting costs are never fully recouped when you go to sell it. Renters bear almost none of these sunk costs. Renters aren’t losing time at Lowe’s & Home Depot either.

 

  • Control. Homeowners have a big advantage here. The peace of mind of knowing that a landlord can’t tell you to move is priceless. You have a feeling of belonging, an anchor. As a homeowner, you can knock out a wall, renovate your kitchen, or add a fence. Make it yours. Control is a big homeowner “plus”. 

 

  • Appreciation. Renters don’t experience price appreciation. They commonly even have to endure rent price increases. Homeowners with loans benefit from financial leverage, which can amplify your wealth in an appreciating environment (though you’re lucky if this offsets ongoing opportunity cost and sunk cost). Inflation becomes your friend for homeowners - and when you’ve only got a tiny down payment into a home that you own - leverage AND inflation are both your friend.

Now, a homeowner may also get an unusually outsized equity benefit if they buy in the right place at the right time. For example, if they had bought 10 or more years ago in a place that’s appreciated a lot - for example in Charlotte, Nashville, Austin, or Boise. That could be a homeowner boon there.

But if you buy a home and it’s value doesn’t appreciate - or even goes down - plus each month you paid more than you would have as a renter - plus you’ve lost time doing repairs & maintenance, then you’re REALLY lost out as a homeowner.

  • Tax Advantages. Homeowners often get the mortgage interest deduction. But this is just one small consideration. As our most recurrent guest in GRE history, Rich Dad Advisor Tom Wheelwright says, “Don’t let the tax tail wag the dog.” To say that “I’m buying instead of renting for tax reasons.” That’s a really weak argument.

 

  • Low mortgage rates. Homeowners can tie up long-term fixed interest rate debt at these historically low rates. Economists believe they’ll stay low for a long time into the future. This is a homeowner advantage.

 

  • Price and Rent-To-Value Ratio. If a home costs less than $250,000, own it. If it costs more, pay rent. If the monthly rent is under $700 per $100,000 of home, rent it. If rent costs more, own it. That’s that approximate seven-tenths of one percent rent-to-value ratio - or rent-to-price ratio. This formulaic approach indicates how much “home” you have the benefit of living in per dollar paid. Regional and other factors can skew these numbers. Of course, when we get that general with the numbers, there are going to be more exceptions.

 

  • Community formation. Owning your home provides both you and your neighbors a feeling of “belonging.” Homeowners are more likely to look out for the common good of the neighborhood. That helps everyone. People feel more fulfilled when they’re part of something greater than themselves.

 

  • Travel. This is so simple yet everyone overlooks this. Have you been to New York City? New Hampshire? Iowa? Arizona? Florida? Alaska? Ecuador? If you haven’t even gotten out to see the very world that you live in, be a renter until you’ve found the place that fits your interests. 

Some people find themselves owning a home for a few years, then later realize that they don’t even live in a region that fits their interests.

Maybe you don’t want to move far away because you want to be close to family. That’s legit. Family can be a good reason for NOT making a distant move. It’s about what’s important … to you.

 

  • Personal cash flow. If it costs substantially more to own a place rather than rent that place, then rent it…and vice versa. Homeowners that divert too much of their income into housing payments are what’s known as “House Poor.” This stifles your opportunity to travel, invest, and provide opportunity for your family.

 

  • Natural disasters. Areas subject to frequent earthquakes, hurricanes, and floods clearly tilt to the renter’s advantage. Even if you’re adequately insured as a homeowner, these catastrophes are worse for homeowners. No one thinks about that stuff until it happens.

 

  • Consumer advantages. Owning rather than renting can give you higher credit card limits and more favorable insurance rates.

Those are the 16 factors that I compiled to help you figure out what makes sense for you.

 

A decided stigma still exists with renting. But you don’t live your life for the Joneses, you live it for you.

 

I’ve got more for you on: “Should you rent your home or own your home.?

 

Hey, have you had something on your mind that’s made you want to write into the show, but you just haven’t done it yet?

More on rent vs. own, next. I want to try to help you make the best decision that you possibly can. I’m Keith Weinhold. This is Get Rich Education.

____________________

 

Welcome back to Get Rich Education. I’m your host Keith Weinhold.

 

Homeowners have a higher net worth than renters. 

 

The average homeowner net worth is $195,000.

The average renter net worth is only $5,000. 

 

That is a substantial gap. The means that homeowner net worth is nearly 40 times what renter net worth is.

 

Does that alone mean that owning is better? No. I think that it does TILT toward owning.

 

But see, to even BE a homeowner and qualify for a mortgage, you would have already needed to have assets and income … in order to cross that threshold.

 

I don’t think these figures are a good reflection of WHERE the homeowners wealth actually came from - was it equity building through leveraged appreciation & principal paydown or how much income they earn from their job?

 

That’s information that I’d like to see. 

 

Of course, in the greater context of Get Rich Education - net worth matters. Not as much as cash flow, but it matters, because net worth can be converted into cash flow.

 

Nonetheless, that net worth stat still tilts to the homeowner favor, just not as much as one thinks.

"People often say that buying a home was the best investment they ever made," that’s what Ne ela Hummel said - the chief planning officer at financial planning firm Abacus Wealth Partners. 

"The problem is that their return as investors is often worse than they think. 

When calculating how much they made on a home, most people do not include the out-of-pocket costs they incurred through things like replacing pipes, repairing roofs, or numerous other unexpected expenses that come up. As a tenant, your costs are fixed, but as a homeowner, you are on the hook for any repair that comes up."

That’s the end of what they said.

Those needed repairs to your home may involve you doing a lot of research online - and watching YouTube videos - to find a solution or simply paying a repairman to remedy the issue. 

Either way, you’re on the hook for investing more time and money into your home when something breaks.

Now, I’ve got another test on renting vs. owning your home.

 

Is a home an “investment”? Do you see your primary residence as an “investment”.

 

Well, what is an “investment” anyway? What is the definition of “investment”.

 

We are an investing show - and we take deep consideration of both the value of your time and your money here, so …

 

The definition of “investment”, per the Oxford dictionary is … “the action or process of investing money for profit or material result.” That’s it.

 

So is your home an investment? I think some people see it that way. 

 

Like I’ve said, if you’re rather lucky and buy the home in the right place and at the right time - you could profit from it. Though that’s more the exception than the norm … probably.

 

What I like to say is that in general, your primary residence is a poor FINANCIAL investment. But it is a good LIFESTYLE investment. 

 

See, in this way, your primary residence is like a vacation.

 

That is because, think about the money you spent on your last vacation. Whether you went to the beach or the ski slopes or French vineyards, it was not a good strict FINANCIAL investment, but it was a good LIFESTYLE investment. 

 

You improved your quality of life. You improved your standard of living.

 

A home is typically a good lifestyle investment and a poor financial investment.

 

Now, look, we’re all somewhat biased based upon our own set of experiences. That goes for me too. I am an 18-year real estate investor. 

 

I grew up in a home that my parents … owned. They even had the mortgage completely paid-off early. 

 

In fact, I think I shared with you before that my parents still live in the same Pennsylvania house that they’ve owned continuously since 1974.

 

But when I grew up in upstate Pennsylvania, all my friends’ families OWNED their homes. No one rented.

 

Later, I’d go on to learn about socioeconomic stratification and how I’d just be less likely to associate and even meet kids from renter households.

 

There was one notable outlier. When I was about 14 years old and the Petroski family moved to town - they were some pretty nice, relatable friends that were into sports & baseball cards - and I learned that they rented. 

 

And that was the first time that I ever remember hearing the word “landlord” in my life … when the Petroskis talked about their landlord, Mr. Hosley.

 

I’ll tell you, my parents owning their home might have help stabilize my childhood. I’m not really sure, because I can’t compare what it’s like to move as a kid, because we never moved.

 

If you’ve got kids, is uprooting them to move damaging to them? 

 

Or does it help them become more adaptable later in life? I truly don’t know the answer. I haven’t read about that at all.

 

But all the kids knew where I lived & could count on me for getting together. 

 

I had an awesome childhood, raised with two married parents, playing wiffle ball in the yard, catching crayfish in the creek, going camping, and collecting Star Wars action figures. All that great kid stuff. And part of that is … well ...

 

Home felt like home. If it’s important for you to build a legacy for your family and have your home incorporated into that - then perhaps only homeownership will give you those … nostalgic feelings. 

 

For me, it was knowing how my brother & I’s Christmas stockings were going to be hung from the mantle in the living room next to our wood-burning stove. 

 

The love from my parents is the most important thing for sure. But knowing that everything was going to be in the same place every year too?

 

You need to understand something. That right there brought me a FEELING, an emotion, that concern for a rent-to-value ratio NEVER could. That’s stuff’s got NOTHING to do with math.

 

If you can’t feel at home, at home, then where you can feel “at home”?

 

Remembering that spot on the living room floor where I was watching the television when the Phillies won the World Series. Yeah, I can still go there and show you that in my parents’ home.

 

See, if I go much further down this track, I’ll soon get teary-eyed here with you. 

 

So, with rent vs. own, is there a hybrid approach? No, there’s not really. There’s something called a lease-purchase. But those agreements are uncommon. 

 

One somewhat hybridized approach is … one that I’ve taken. 

 

I own the home that I live in. I’ve lived in that home for 8 years. But see, what I did is, knowing what we know about equity, is that I decided to own my home but have a low equity position.

 

I made a 5% down payment with a conventional loan. 

 

See, now I’ve got 20:1 leverage, very little skin in the game, and still have control, plus I got a 3.5% interest rate back in 2012.

 

See, instead of putting 20%, with 5% down, now I have that difference of 15% of the value of the home … out working for me as equity levers in other income properties in other states.

 

And no, I pay ZERO monthly PMI despite putting 5% down with a conventional loan. I’ve given you detail on how I pulled that off on previous shows, and you can too. 

 

The short story is, make a strong offer on your buy price and put it into the contract that your seller pay upfront PMI for you.

 

Now, there are some other distinct things happening in my geography where - if someone wanted to come buy my primary residence from me, but yet I could keep living here as their renter …

 

… and it was written into the contract that they couldn’t make me move, and I know I would pay them a lower rent amount than I’m currently paying in my mortgage & all those other homeowner expenses, I WOULD consider doing that.

 

Those situations are hard to find.

 

Yep, I would convert my mortgage payments to rent payments if I could get that arrangement. 

 

And why do this? Because the lower rent payment would increase my personal monthly cash flow, plus it would free up any dead equity that I have in the home.

 

Part of the rationale there is that my home market has few prospects for substantial appreciation in the next few years.

 

Well, in rent vs. own, what’s the bottom line with what makes the most sense for you financially? (Just … talking financial only here)

 

Be a renter in a high-end home and then buy low-cost income properties in investor-advantaged markets in the Midwest and South - that you rent out to others.

 

See, if you’re a renter in a high-end home, now you’ve got zero dead equity tied up in your home - and instead, it’s leveraging property in sensible markets.

 

In fact, I know a few other people - savvy people - that understand rent-to-price ratios and do exactly that. 

 

They’re FAIRLY wealthy people that are renters by choice - and own lots of rental property in low-priced markets.

 

But there’s no one definitive OVERALL factor in your Rent vs. Own decision because this is where finances and feelings intersect.

 

So here’s hoping that you’re finding a few considerations that you’ve never thought about before!

 

To be clear here and to summarize overall ...

 

  • Is homeownership a sham? Is it a rip-off? No.

 

  • Is homeownership overrated? Yes, it still is.

 

  • Many people that are renting should own. These people seem to know that.

 

  • Conversely, many that are owning would actually be better off renting. Few seem to know that and they’re even willing to take up an argument with you. 

They’ve heard the same “Paying rent is like throwing money away.” thing for so long, that they’d rather argue than really think it through.

 

Well, the reason that I did this show today - though it’ll be just as relevant if you’re listening 5 to 10 years from now, is pandemic-related. 

 

It’s because the COVID-19 pandemic is appearing to increase the migration rate as people look for less dense housing. 

 

Whether you’re migrating or not, now you better know whether renting or owning your home makes the most sense for you.

 

Next week here on the show, we’ll discuss what we usually do - INCOME property - property that you don’t live in, but instead, rent to others - and just exactly why the investment makes more ordinary people wealthy than anything else. 

 

If there’s one thing that I know about you, it’s that you are always going to live somewhere. 

 

And you know what else, so is everyone that you know. 

 

Every person that you know - may or may not own rental property - but everyone that you know is always going to live somewhere too. 

 

Do you think that this show would benefit them? 

 

This episode in particular might save your family and friends SO much time and money.

 

I love it when you share the show with others. So I’d be grateful if you took a screenshot of this episode and shared it on your Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, or even through an email or text with those that you care about. 

 

I always endeavor to make things clear to understand here on the show. I’m Keith Weinhold.

Where are the big investment risks today? Economic forecaster Harry Dent tells us.

Despite pandemic-driven unemployment, tenants are largely paying the rent.

The price of an existing American home is now $304,100, surging 8.5%.

Lumber prices for a new home are up $16K since April. This increases the value of your property’s replacement cost.

The new 0.5% adverse market condition fee for refinances is annoying. Learn how to avoid it.

In the pandemic, real estate keeps shining.

Harry Dent is fired up. He joins me to tell us why he thinks most assets are in a bubble: economics and demographics. 

His latest book is “Zero Hour”.

Baby Boomers find renting to be more acceptable today.

Harry predicts when stocks will fall 80-85%, a crash occurs, and about the profligacy of the Fed printing trillions in the pandemic.

The wealthy are enjoying federal monetary stimulus. Meanwhile, unemployed tenants can now be evicted nationally (check your local law).

Own assets? Great. Mortgage interest rates are at historic lows; the S&P 500 is at an all-time high.

(Entire episode transcript is below. Read as you listen.)

In the pandemic, tenants want single-family homes more than communal apartments.

Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac want to add a 0.5% refinancing fee. 

Homebuilder sentiment is high? Why? High demand, low inventory, low rates.

Stagflation is explained. It is a stagnant economy with high inflation.

There are signs that inflation is poised to increase.

Complete Episode Transcript:

 

Welcome to Get Rich Education. I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. 

 

The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. I can’t think of any one time in my life where that’s been happening more than it has been than right now.

 

I’ll tell you why - and what you need to do to get on the right side of that. 

 

What is going on in the real estate market and what are the real estate economics that matter? Then, a discussion about inflation. Today, on Get Rich Education.

____________

 

Hey, you’re inside GRE. From Manila, Philippines to Managua, Nicaragua and across 188 nations worldwide, I’m Keith Weinhold. This is Get Rich Education.

 

The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer - and I can’t think of any one time in my life where that’s been happening more than it has been than right now.

 

Because Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck might now be ... paycheck-less. Some of them are laid off - because of the pandemic - and now they're concerned that there's no national eviction ban.

 

That’s right. In most states, non-paying tenants CAN be evicted at this time. Now, you’ve got to check your local law.

 

Well, when is Congress going to do something to relieve those that the pandemic has left unemployed?

 

Well, they don’t even reconvene until after Labor Day.

 

Some people are wondering - “Where is the CARES Act 2?” Where are those updated forbearance options, eviction moratorium, the PayCheck Protection Program, and the $1,200 stimulus checks and the stepped-up weekly unemployment compensation?

 

In fact, Richmond Fed President Thomas Barkin had  good metaphor. He said: “Months ago, when we did the first stimulus, we thought the economy faced a pothole and the stimulus put a plate over it so we could navigate. 

 

Now escalation of the virus may be making that pothole into a sinkhole and creating a need for a longer plate.” That’s the end of what the Fed President said.

 

Now, look, I think there’s a lot to be said for just letting the free market do it’s job. 

 

But it’s a little hard to be in this laissez-faire, Austrian economics school of thought when some people could be suffering.  

 

So that you know what I’m talking about, “lay-say-fare” basically means no government intervention into the free market.

 

Meanwhile, the rich are bingeing off Federal Reserve policy and liquidity injections that keep mortgage interest rates at historic lows and the S&P 500 at an all-time high.

 

Mortgage rates recently dipped below 3%, which is just amazing.

 

You don’t even have to be THAT rich … to benefit. If you’ve got substantial exposure to the real estate market or the stock market, chances are, that those assets are doing alright.

 

One thing that you need to keep in mind as an investor, is that, when the Fed puts rates on the floor, it affects more than just MORTGAGE rates - it affects other rates too - like savings account rates.

 

Just look at the rates at bank savings accounts. 

 

Even if you’re in one of these online banks that give better yields than traditional brick-and-mortar banks - we’re talking about online-first banks like Ally Bank and Popular Bank - they were paying two-and-a-half percent on savings accounts not all that long ago. 

 

Even those banks are now down to about three-quarters of one percent - probably less than the real rate of inflation.

 

So because savers get punished worse than ever right now, that, in turn, forces more people INTO things like real estate, because you’re in search of that yield.

 

Even retirees can’t rely on the paltry income from three-quarters of one percent yield so they have to go to the markets to chase yields too - sometimes unwillingly.

 

Well, when all these people that got negative REAL yield on savings accounts and CDs - and aren’t going to stand for it anymore, it forces more demand … and money into markets and consequently, floats the price of everything up. 

 

That’s what’s going on now.

 

Now, I personally don't really like this deepening canyon between the "rich” and the “poor". But I know which side I'd rather be on.

 

Besides the investment properties, a lot of people want to move and shake-up their living situation like never before - their primary residence - and filter their new home-buying criteria on pandemic ways of life.

 

Bidding wars are rampant for single-family homes. How rampant are they? Well, 

Zillow just reported their highest daily active user count ... ever. 

 

Now, though property data can move even slower than your last 1031 Exchange did, Real Estate Economist Daren Blomquist just compiled THESE year-over-year price changes through quarter two.

 

You’ve heard Daren Blomquist on the show here. He broke this down this way: 

 

City real estate is up +4% - again, this is all year-over-year through the second quarter.

Town +4%

Suburban +5%

Rural +11%

 

The two sources are ATTOM Data Solutions and the U.S. Census Bureau.

 

So rural is appreciating the best. City and town is appreciating the least. 

 

With time, I expect urban areas and apartments to slump. Of course, urban areas and apartments kind of go together. 

 

In the pandemic, living in a lot of large apartment buildings has become about as fashionable as Jazzercise and The Atkins Diet.

 

Of course, at GRE, we've long focused on rental single-family homes. We’ve talked a little about apartments and you know that I started out with a four-plex & got my start in real estate that way.

 

This week, NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun noted:

 

" ... (There's) an oversupply of apartment buildings, especially in city centers given the evident recent shift in consumer preference for single-family homes in the suburbs

 

Lawrence Yun continued: "Apartment rent growth could therefore be tough going ahead.

 

The rise of single-family units is welcome, as overall inventory of homes for sale are down 19% from one year ago and there is intense buyer competition in the market as a result." That’s the end of what Lawrence Yun said.

 

As long as your tenant can pay the rent, this is welcome news for your existing single-family rental homes - like the ones that you’ve acquired through GREturnkey.com. 

 

It puts upward pressure on the price. So congratulations there.

 

The appetite for real assets, especially desirable rental single-family homes, now propelled by low inventory and low interest rates has put you in good shape if you’ve acted.

 

But of course, the COVID pandemic isn’t over. We don’t really know how all of this is going to turn out. And even when a vaccine is developed, remember that it will probably take … at least a few months to distribute it.

 

In my OWN portfolio, all of my single-family rental homes are occupied - 100%. But my apartment building vacancies are unusually high right now.

 

When we talk about apartment buildings and office buildings as well - Axios recently reported about how residents and workers are experiencing what they call “elevator anxiety”. I’ll put that in the Show Notes for you. 

 

An elevator is one of the most physically, uncomfortable awkward places to be in the pandemic.

 

If you’re wondering about how that real estate looks - we’re generally talking about buildings that are four or more stories in height.

 

In fact, the ADA - the Americans with Disabilities Act - stipulates that properties with four or more stories generally are going to need to have an elevator. 

 

I’ll tell ya - if apartment buildings are as unfashionable as the Adkins Diet these days, then being inside an elevator is about as hip as Jane Fonda workout videos, NordicTrack, and Sweatin' To The Oldies with Richard Simmons.

 

https://youtu.be/na9ZZ4ZjVa8?t=28  

 

Oh geez. Did that really just happen? I guess it did. So … while we’re all processing that, getting back to real estate here.

 

Now, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac recently said that they will start charging a 0.5% “adverse market fee” on all refinances, including both cash-out and non-cash-out refis. They were trying to put that new fee into effect for next month.

What a drag that would be. So for every $200,000 you refinance, you’d have to pay an additional $1,000 fee - or maybe your lender would pay it.

What Freddie Mac said is: “As a result of risk management and loss forecasting precipitated by COVID-19 related economic and market uncertainty, we are introducing a new … what they call ... Market Condition Credit Fee in Price”. Freddie sent in their notice to lenders.

Wouldn’t that be an annoying fee?

Well, almost immediately, the National Association of Mortgage Brokers struck back. They launched a campaign to reverse that newly announced one-half of one percent refinancing fee. We’ll see where that goes.

 

Now, things are really good for homebuilders these day. An index measuring homebuilder sentiment matched its highest level ever yesterday. Why? I mean, it’s simple. There is a healthy amount of DEMAND from buyers and not enough homes to meet it. 

Also, the 30-year fixed mortgage rate bottomed out at 2.88% in August, the lowest point on record. Those low borrowing rates are boosting homebuyers' appetites … obviously.

There really are a few recent stories that are de facto microcosms - reflections of this appetite for a work-from-home arrangement and less dense housing.

For example, it’s really telling to look at what the outdoor clothing and gear company, REI just did.

Do you like REI? I like shopping there. Even if you aren’t into outdoor stuff, you can always find a cool water bottle or something at REI.

Well, they just announced plans to sell the lavish corporate campus that they had just finished building near Seattle. 

REI executives concluded that employees were able to collaborate remotely better than the company originally THOUGHT ...so a massive physical HQ just wasn’t worth the cost any longer. So REI is selling what they had just built.

Other real estate segments falling out of favor - are those high-density places, like you might expect - New York City and San Francisco. 

  • StreetEasy reported that Manhattan home values dropped 4.2% since last year and homes are lingering on the market more two months longer … than they had just last year.
  • San Francisco list prices are down 5% annually, while inventory is up 96%. Yes, a near doubling of available inventory in San Francisco.

NYC and San Francisco were already the most expensive housing markets in the country BEFORE the pandemic. And life under lockdown has given people that nudge they had already been considering for years.

And then, single-family homes in outlying areas are the real beneficiaries here. There have been a number of notable milestones.

COLORADO SFH sales rose 21% July-over-July. The median price statewide in Colorado is now $444,000. Just looking at Denver, Denver just broke the $600K mark for the first time ever.

 

So, a few months into the pandemic, we’re getting a clearer sense of who the winners and losers are - a lot of them are what we expected.

 

If I had to slim it down to just a 3-word answer for you on why the rich are getting richer, those 3 words are: Federal Monetary Stimulus.

 

And the stimulus is disproportionately benefitting … asset owners.

 

Well, the pandemic hasn’t affected some real estate investors at all. Others, feel more reliant on the next government stimulus program to give their tenants the wherewithal to pay the rent. 

 

Well, if you, as an investor want to have the majority of your rent income payment guaranteed to be made by the government to you over the long-term, well, that’s what landlords of tenants with HUD-funded “Section 8” housing have enjoyed for decades.

 

You have guaranteed rent income. 

 

I think you remember that I had a turnkey provider that specializes in Section 8 housing here on the show on Get Rich Education Episode 297. So just ten show ago, which was 10 weeks ago.

 

Like any investment, Section 8 Housing is best viewed through a prism of pros and cons. 

 

Section 8 is not for everybody. Some love it, some don’t … but this provider manages the Section 8 administration FOR you. They’ve got a great relationship with the housing authority. 

 

That’s something that most landlords of this government-subsidized housing never had. 

 

“Guaranteed rent income” has a nicer ring to it than it did just a year ago.

_________________

 

Hey, you’re back inside Get Rich Education. I’m your host, Keith Weinhold.

 

Both the pandemic-driven CARES Act, and whatever other monetary stimulus acts that follow … are injections of trillions of dollars into the economy. 

 

In fact, it’s now driven our national debt to nearly $27 trillion dollars.

 

Of course, this has the effect of … money printing. It’s not literal money printing. The more you learn about it, it’s often U.S. government bond issuance. 

 

A bond really just means that the government issues an I.O.U. that someone else, like China buys. 

 

Those are some of the semantics behind, what we you can really more closely think of as “currency creation” rather than money printing.

 

Will this result in inflation? That’s the big question. Well, longer-term, many think, “yes”. Short-term, “no”. We are in a low demand environment.

 

Of course, as a real estate investor, you want inflation. You might have seen on the Get Rich Education YouTube Channel where, I have visually mapped out how you win “The Inflation Triple Crown”.

 

In fact, if you just Google the three words, “Inflation Triple Crown”, you can probably see me - as the first hit on Google - and you can watch me doing the whiteboard video.

 

As you’ll remember, real estate investors win the Inflation Triple Crown because inflation provides you with: #1 Asset Price Inflation, #2 Debt Debasement and #3 Cash Flow Enhancement - that all works terrifically when you’re leveraged.

 

There are more signs of inflation out there in the economy right now than we’ve seen in the recent past. Though I still expect it to be mild as long as we’re in this pandemic-driven low demand environment …

 

The consumer price index rose six-tenths of one percent last month. That beat the two-tenths expectation that economists had had. 

 

Food are prices up substantially, and then, a substantial input to homebuilder pricing and therefore the future value of homes - is lumber - and lumber prices have been soaring higher.

 

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that the administration is unfazed with these historically obscenely high levels of government spending … thanks to the nation’s very low interest rates.

 

See, the Fed is less concerned about mounting debt when the interest rate that THEY pay on their debt is low … much like you’re less concerned about your debt when the interest rate is so low - you might be looking to take on more debt now.

 

Of course, YOU’VE got a better deal on your real estate debt than the Federal Government does, because the Federal Government doesn’t have tenants to service their debt for them like you do in an occupied rental property. 

 

Could America reach a STAGflationary state again like it did in the 1970s? We haven’t discussed the economic phenomena of stagflation before.

 

Do you know what that is? Stagflation is a stagnant economy with inflation. That’s what it means.

 

OK, usually a more stagnant economy - like we’re in now - is characterized by low inflation due to lower demand not running up the prices of consumer goods and household staples.

 

But again, stagflation means that there’s a stagnant economy WITH high inflation. Could THAT happen this decade? 

 

To reinforce your learning here, let’s listen to the audio from this explainer video from One Minute Economics about stagflation. 

 

This is less than a minute & a half in length. 

 

https://youtu.be/YaC_PNKu_Cg

 

Yes, well, if we get stagflation, meaning again, a stagnant economy that we have high inflation, I don’t know that we’d have another Fed Chief like Paul Voelcker - who, 40 years ago, brazenly raised interest rates so aggressively to combat inflation that mortgage rates were 18% forty years ago.

 

I don’t know that anyone would prevent inflation from running away at that point.

 

But again, that’s STAGFLATION. 

 

Now, I know what you might be thinking. Maybe you’re thinking that all of the Fed currency creation to pull us out of 2009’s Great Recession didn’t produce high inflation, so why would it be any different this time, with all these CURRENT cycles of massive dollar creation once again?

 

That would be a valid thing for you to think.

 

At least based on the official government numbers, we’ve only had about 2% monetary inflation in recent years. 

 

Well, see. Though high inflation wasn’t the RESULT ten years ago, it might have actually been CREATED and you just didn’t know it. So, here’s what I mean. 

 

Say that the expansion of globalization and technological advancement REALLY meant that we had NEGATIVE 5% inflation - another way to say that is that what if we WOULD HAVE had 5 points of deflation if they’re WEREN’T any excess dollar creation?.

 

But yet, all of the dollar creation after the Great Recession caused 7% inflation.

 

Well then, 5 points of DEflation offset by 7% INflation resulted in ... 2% inflation.

 

Think about it that way. Maybe something like that is what really happened … and that is why all of today’s currency creation COULD result in high inflation. We don’t know that it will. But that’s just one reason why it COULD.

 

Now, overall, to pull back and look at the state of housing in this pandemic-driven recession. 

 

Housing has been - and continues to be - substantially better off in this recession THAN it was in the 2008 Great Recession - that event - twelve years ago, had a housing COLLAPSE as a driver. People left the keys and walked away from their homes back then.

 

Now, instead, we’ve got bidding wars for housing. 

 

I want to temper that with a reminder that the pandemic is not over yet, and it could still take an unforeseen turn.

 

The bad part about this recession is that we’ve got higher unemployment than we did back then.

 

Now, the reasons that real estate is BETTER OFF in this recession compared to the last one is:

 

  • Housing Demand Exceeds Supply - that was in the OPPOSITE state last recession.
  • Responsible Lending Prevailed - again, that was OPPOSITE of last time.
  • We’ve Got Low Mortgage Rates - lower than they’ve ever been. 
  • And We had No “Bubbly” Price Run-up before this recession, unlike what happened in the 2008 Great Recession. 

 

They are … the key differences. 

 

Coming up on a future episode here - we’re primarily a show about how buy-and-hold residential INVESTMENT property produces wealth for you - and how to avoid mistakes.

 

But so many people are re-evaluating their primary residence situation lately, that, coming up on the show, I’m going to go deep on - “Should You Rent Your Home Or Should You Own Your Home?”

 

There is some counterintuition and paradox here. 

 

I’m going to give you a new twist on the fact that - if you pay rent, that is NOT The Same As Throwing Money Away  

 

Also, some people seem to think that homeownership is like: "Renting. Except you get to keep it." That is false and that has caused millions of people to buy houses that they later regret.

 

Is your primary residence an investment? Do YOU consider it an investment? Well, in almost EVERY case it is a poor financial investment, but it could be a good lifestyle investment. 

 

So, “Should You Rent Your Own Home Or Own Your Own Home that you live in.” That’s coming up on a future show.

 

Well, regardless of your living situation, pandemic-driven unemployment might have made you realize that … you need a durable, long-term 2nd source of income - if you don’t already have one.

 

Even if you aren’t losing your job, circumstances have hit close to home for a lot of people. 

 

You can either let other people make money off your money, like the bank paying you 1% on your savings. 

 

Or you can make money off OPM (like borrowing at a 5% mortgage to invest at 11% - or hopefully, a lot more than 11% with the (up to) five profit centers that real estate has.) 

 

RE is that instrument of arbitrage.

 

As they say, you can either teach a man to fish or give a man a fish. Well, why not do both? That IS the abundance mindset afterall. 

 

At GetRichEducation.com, we teach you how to fish.

 

At GREturnkey.com, we give you a fish too.

 

What is going on at GREturnkey?

 

Well, first, get your mortgage pre-approval at a reputable lender that specializes in investment property like Ridge Lending Group.

 

You’ll see at GREturnkey.com that Birmingham and Huntsville, AL have investor-advantaged numbers that work.

 

Pockets of Huntsville may have better appreciation if they’re tied to employment in the space industry. 

 

Gosh, love him or hate him, Elon Musk gave us something to actually celebrate in an otherwise tough 2020 as he led the first private company to launch astronauts to space - emblematic of the burgeoning space industry - both Huntsville, AL and Orlando, Florida there at GREturnkey pick up on some of that.

 

We just discussed Chicago here last week. Chicago and Dayton, Ohio are two markets that keep sourcing existing inventory that they beautifully renovate, and both markets have rent-to-price ratios that are typically OVER 1%.

 

When you’re over 1% and mortgage interest rates are this low, it makes your affordability as an investor REALLY advantageous. That’s Chicago and Dayton.

 

Des Moines, Iowa is sourcing a little inventory lately - not as much as some of the other providers. That’s a stable place.

 

Florida is a bright spot for new construction turnkey property - Jacksonville, Tampa, and the aforementioned Orlando all sourcing brand new construction property. 

 

When it’s NEW construction, your insurance cost is often really low too.

 

Memphis, Tennessee and Little Rock, Arkansas are both the SAME provider there at GREturnkey - and that provider name is MidSouthHomeBuyers. There you have lower price points and MidSouth Home Buyers is so good with beginners.

 

And then, Oklahoma City - the numbers work and some media outlets have named Oklahoma City as the most recession-resistant market in America. You’re getting a 1% rent-to-price ratio there too.

 

Finally, Richmond, Virginia - I mentioned them earlier. They specialize in knowing the ways and means of how to optimize Section 8 tenancies because they have a great relationship with the housing authority there. 

 

Most, or really all of these markets that I mentioned are in the United States Midwest & South. 

 

Florida - oddly enough - is not culturally the South - though it’s the most southeastern state there is - their history of net-in migration makes them culturally disparate from what we think of as the south, but …

 

… all these markets I mentioned are in investor-advantaged metros where you generally have more stable prices, and landlord-tenant law that favors your rights moreso than the tenant’s rights. 

 

So these markets are hand-chosen pretty carefully for you. 

 

Once you’re pre-qualified for a loan, find all those providers & a few more at GREturnkey.com.

 

I am honored because you have given me something … and that is that I have had the privilege of having your time today. 

 

Until next week, I’m your host, Keith Weinhold. Don’t Quit Your Daydream!

You contribute to homelessness. I do too. The problem goes right through real estate.

Factors include: NIMBYism, minimum wage, salamanders, smoke detectors, and rent control.

(Complete transcript on homelessness segment below.)

Then, Chicago is a world class city with lots of economic diversification. Chicagoland’s numbers make sense for real estate investors.

In northwestern Indiana (suburban Chicago), you avoid the high cost of Illinois property. 

A typical SFH has $1,350 rent and a $125,000 purchase price.

Welcome to Get Rich Education! I’m your host, Keith Weinhold, with a two-part show.

Real estate is a substantial input into homelessness. Why are people homeless - and why might you & I be partly RESPONSIBLE for it, in fact?

 

The second part - in general, world class cities don’t make any sense to invest in for cash flow - New York, LA, DC, London, Singapore … but we’re going to discuss one “world class” city that actually DOES. Today, on Get Rich Education.

__________________

 

Here it is - hey! You’re inside GRE. From Sarasota, Florida to Sarajevo - in Bosnia and Herzegovina - and across 188 nations worldwide. 

 

I’m Keith Weinhold, this is Get Rich Education.

 

Even in the affluent United States, there is a large and growing population of vagrants - homeless people … more than half a million of them … and you & I … unknowingly play a role in keeping them homeless.

 

Why are people homeless? Well, the #1 reason is real estate-related. So that’s why I’m talking about it in the first of two show segments here.

 

Let’s look at the Top 5 cited reasons that people are homeless.

 

5th most common - Substance abuse - drugs.

4th - Mental illness.

3rd - Poverty ...OK, that’s sort of an obvious one.

2nd - Unemployment

1st - Lack of affordable housing

 

Lack of affordable housing is the #1 reason that people are homeless. Well, one mission here at GRE is that we PROVIDE society with affordable housing.

 

But, it’s generally not the same kind of Class D, lowest-end housing that there is - and that homeless people are looking to get into. 

 

We focus on properties just below the median housing price in some of the lower-cost U.S. metros - B-class and C-Class. That’s a notch or two above where those on the brink of homelessness would be.

 

The homeless population is more visible in my own home city since the pandemic - and perhaps yours too … now that the unemployment rate is 10%. 

 

I’m going to tell you what contributes to homelessness - and a lot of this has to do with real estate: contributors are carbon monoxide detectors, minimum wage, salamanders, NIMBYism, and over the long term: rent control.

 

Now, before we unpack that. Let’s define homelessness.

 

One of the better accepted definitions is - a condition where people lack "a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence". That’s “homelessness defined”. 

 

I think you & I can agree that “homeless” is not the best technical term - right? Because even if someone lives under a bridge, that IS their home.

 

Houselessness would actually be more accurate.

 

Vagrancy is an even better way to say it. A vagrant is a person without a settled home or regular work who wanders from place to place and lives by begging.

 

That’s what we’re really talking about here. But homelessness is the widely understood term, so I’m going to it.

 

Now, HUD - the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has a lot of statistics on the homeless, and ...

 

… as of 2018, they reported there were roughly 553,000 homeless people in the United States on a given night,[2] or nearly two-tenths of 1% of the population. 

 

That’s about 1 in 500 Americans then. Well, many people - me included - believe that the real number of homeless is greater than this 553,000.

 

In fact, private & local reports tell you that the homelessness have increased 40% per annum in recent years - yeah, 40% per year!

 

A big mistake is that people think about the homeless as all one type. But there are so many different types of homeless. 

 

There are the temporary homeless -  passing through that 553,000 number.

 

Some are voluntarily homeless. Others are really couch-surfing because perhaps they were in a divorce or domestic violence situation.

 

Then you need to realize that about 2/3rd of their population is sheltered, and ⅓ unsheltered. 

 

Consider too, that there are at least 40,000 homeless veterans. To think that a person could have served this country - and maybe even risked their life for this country - but don’t have a home in this country … can be heartbreaking to think about.

 

Now, though I’m not sure, I don’t believe that a digital nomad would be considered among the homeless - the laptop entrepreneur that stays at a different AirBnB location, say monthly.   

 

Before we bring in the real estate angle, let’s get some historical context. Just talking about the U.S. here ...

 

Homelessness emerged as a national issue in the 1870s.[6] Early homeless people lived in emerging urban cities, like New York City

 

Into the 20th century, the Great Depression of the 1930s caused a substantial rise in unemployment and related social issues and distress and homelessness. 

 

In the 21st century the financial crisis of 2008 and resulting economic stagnation and downturn has been a major driving factor and contributor to rising homelessness rates.

 

That is probably happening again, right now, in the COVID pandemic.

 

A Zillow report found that people in communities where the average renter spends more than 30 percent of their income on rent — meaning that they can be described as being “rent-burdened” — are particularly vulnerable to rapid increases in homelessness rates.

 

Eviction obviously creates homelessness.

 

Now, some naively think - can’t we just raise taxes to build permanent housing for them & move them all in there? I really doubt that that’s a viable long-term solution. 

 

Because at some point, if taxpayer funded housing is just “provided” for people, then people don’t have incentive to work & pay the rent.

 

That’s in general. Right, maybe someone has a disability that prevents them from making a living. 

 

Some think - maybe we SHOULD impose rent control. Rent control means capping the amount of rent that a landlord can charge.

 

I’ll tell ya - that could reduce the number of homeless people in some areas that HAVE enough housing. But long-term, rent control is a terrible plan.

 

Because now an income property owner like you has zero incentive to improve the property any longer. 

 

Long-term, rent controlled areas fall into serious dilapidation. 

 

And because homelessness is concentrated in inner cities. It’s those exact same big cities - like New York - that have tried rent control. 

 

It doesn’t work. So many areas that have tried to impose it, have to repeal it, because it eventually turns areas into ghettos.

 

What if you own property in an area where rent control were imposed? Even if you did improve your property - not only would you NOT get more rent for it - but you had better believe that property owners all around you wouldn’t be improving their property … and the entire condition of the neighborhood would be on a loooong downhill slide.

 

You might remember that I devoted an episode to the rent control topic. You can look that up on Get Rich Education Episode 192 if you’re further interested there. 

 

One factor that contributes to higher housing costs - which prices people out of having any shelter and creates more homeless people are … environmental regulations that limit development in certain areas.

 

Sometimes you need to leave a development buffer for streams or you can’t build in areas that are wetlands in order to protect flora and fauna.

 

A rare orchid, or a spotted salamander or a threatened egret or an endangered heron. They say, you can’t build in their critical habitat areas. You’ve got to protect them.

 

But yet, often, the same type of people that want more environmental regulations are the same people that say that they want more affordable housing options.

 

Well, when you limit where you can build, now you’ve reduced the housing supply. Real estate pricing is highly susceptible to supply/demand factors, of course.

 

All these wildlife protections limit supply. That makes prices go up. That prices people out.

 

Now, maybe you’re thinking I’m anti-environmentalist? No, I’m not taking a side either way. 

 

It’s just that one needs to understand the cost and the longer-term ramifications of decisions that limit development in protecting the spotted salamander. 

 

I think it’s easy to make a case that more biodiversity is better than less biodiversity. But the better question is: “At what cost should we protect species? How far do we take it?” 

 

Environmental regulations in the United States are intended to improve the quality of the environment; preserve ecosystems - that includes wildlife; and protect human health too.

 

But these regulations are often written without considering how much they will cost.

 

Another contributor to homelessness is excessive safety regulations.

 

Again, some safety regulations are good. But how far do we take it? 

 

My gosh, when an area needs to build more affordable housing for people - which is something that would reduce the homeless rate … and ...

 

Sheesh, a new home today might need fourteen smoke detectors and five carbon monoxide detectors … then the detectors need to be connected to each other so that they can communicate with each other … and all these devices and this added complexity increases the cost of housing.

 

That makes mortgage payments higher, rent payments higher, and it just prices more people out of the real estate market. The lower end of the income spectrum gets priced out of affordable shelter.

 

I’m not anti-safety. But at some point, one has got to ask the question, “How much safety do we really need?” 

 

Even - “What is the cost of a human life?” There actually is an answer to that question. In fact, the EPA pegs the cost of a human life at $10M - one of the highest of any federal agency.  

 

And then, there’s the entire question of how can you ever monetize the value of a human life. You can make the case … that it’s priceless. That’s a different discussion.   

 

But the point is, all these safety regulations increase the cost of housing and increase homelessness.

 

Minimum wage does, in many instances, increase homelessness long-term. 

 

This might come as a surprise to you. You would think that raising the minimum wage would have to DE-crease homelessness - because a higher wage would mean that low-income workers could now afford housing.

 

Well, long-term, besides higher wages in an area creating inflation & soon making the cost of everything go UP - including housing …

 

Think about it from the perspective of if you’re an employer & you have to pay your workers a higher wage - now that minimum wage is higher.

 

If someone that works for you makes $9 an hour - but they only produce $12 an hour worth of productivity for you...  

 

And a new minimum wage of $15 an hour is implemented, you’re losing money if you retain that worker. So you would lay them off.

 

You would find ways to automate - or make a machine do the work that that employee used to do for you. That layoff increases homelessness.

 

Just look at the number of self-serve checkout kiosks in grocery stores. Those lanes used to be staffed by humans that earned a wage.

 

With a hike in the minimum wage up to $15 an hour, you’d begin to see a trend where more fast-food restaurants have self-serve kiosks. You’ll have fewer humans there.

 

That’s because some employers can’t afford to pay people $15 an hour. Every self-serve digital kiosk that you see represents a laid-off worker.

 

Talk to your parents or grandparents and they’ll tell you that gas stations used to be attended by humans that would pump your gas for you, check your tire pressure, check your fluid levels - that’s been gone for a couple generations.

 

Now, an increase in the minimum wage would help get some people out of homelessness short-term … yes. 

 

I’m giving you insight so that you can see both sides & see the long-term consequences of government intervention into the free market.

 

Let’s say that you’re an employer at a warehouse, the minimum wage is $15 an hour and you want to hire someone to help you sweep floors & do odd maintenance jobs around this warehouse that you own.  

 

Well, now it’s illegal for you to hire them at $12 an hour. You’d love to give a kid a job and help him learn - and you can’t make the numbers work at $15 an hour. 

 

So now he’s unemployed because the government said, “No. You can’t hire him at $12 an hour.” That’s what a $15 minimum wage says. Try looking at it from that angle.

 

Another phenomenon that keeps people homeless is NIMBY - Not In My Backyard.

 

NIMBYists are the ones that say, “No, I don’t want you to build low-cost housing in my neighborhood, because I’m afraid that it’s going to ruin the character of my neighborhood and it’ll stifle the rate of home appreciation here.”

 

Lafayette, California is a wealthy San Francisco suburb. It is nestled in Contra Costa County, where its residents fight to stop what they call a "very urban," "unsightly" 315-unit housing development 

 

It was recently profiled by The New York Times.

 

Over in the suburban community of Cupertino, California—we’re talking Silicon Valley now—local activists spent years trying to stop the development of an abandoned mall into apartments, half of which would be rented out to lower-income tenants at below-market rates.

In  Berkeley, California, activists often argue against new housing on the grounds that it will threaten their community's sustainable character.

Well, what is another example of NIMBYism? 

At a recent Zoning Adjustment Board Meeting in Berkeley, I think one resident summarized NIMBYism really well - and this was published in the New York Times - they said "Berkeley needs to prioritize a livable, sustainable environment for people who already live here” …

… when they were opposing a 57-unit development of student housing. They went on to say: "We are not obligated to sacrifice what is best about Berkeley to build dorm rooms." That’s the end of what they said.

NIMBY - this “Not in My Backyard” opposition to new housing development - centers on concerns of property values and crime and gentrification and environmental sustainability. 

Even though it’s often not their intent, the result of NIMBYism is that less housing gets built, housing costs go up and homelessness … rises.

So, let’s draw some conclusions here and look at some actionable ways that you can make things better.

 

Though it isn’t immediately apparent - carbon monoxide detectors, minimum wage, salamanders & egrets, rent control, and NIMBYism - all go right through the heart of real estate investing and contribute to the long-term cycle of homelessness.

 

A giant takeaway for you here, is that, what is the common denominator in ALL of these factors. There is one common theme. 

 

You know what that is - it is Government intervention.

 

Government intervention and interference in the free market - is the contributor here - excessive safety, minimum wage, protecting salamanders & egrets, rent control, and NIMBYism. 

 

Every single one of them. 

 

And now, maybe if you’re a new Get Rich Education listener - especially - you might be wondering, am I some anti-government guy where I think that the answer to EVERYTHING is free market economics.

 

Well, though I think that less government would be better. 

 

I’ll tell you that SOME government regulation is good - just less than what we have now. 

 

For example, look at all the smoky, hazy pollution in Pittsburgh, PA in the 1970s. It was a hazard to your health just to walk Pittsburgh then.

 

You might have heard about this: famously, in the summer of 1969 - An oil slick in Ohio’s Cuyuhoga River caught on fire.

 

Companies were committing rampant pollution such that it was a hazard to human health.

Well, government regulations like the Federal Clean Water Act Of 1972 helped to clean that up.

 

So, that regulation helped. Government has a role, but it’s often overly intrusive.

 

When it comes to you helping the homeless directly, I like the campaign slogan that says, “Give real change, not small change.” 

 

That means, don’t give money directly to panhandlers on the street. Where do you think that your goes then? Probably straight to cheap monarch vodka in those plastic bottles.

 

Also, if you don’t want to see homeless people in your neighbourhood, don’t give to them if they’re on your city’s street corner - like they are mine - because you’ve just given them an incentive to show up there again & do the same thing.

 

So instead of small change, give real change. When you donate to your local homeless shelter or soup kitchen, your money is going to do MORE REAL GOOD for the homeless.

 

It’s going to provide them with shelter, or educational resources, or a computer so that they might be able to apply for a job. That’s real change.

 

You want to help the homeless? I think that’s great. That’s kind. Give real change, not small change.

 

When it comes to NIMBYism and the environment, there’s a great saying out there.

 

What do you call a developer –  someone who wants to build a house.  Well, what do you call an environmentalist – someone who already owns the house, [LAUGHING] because they don’t want anyone else to build there, right?

 

Well, we avoid investing in coastal areas here at Get Rich Education. They’re what I call the volatile markets - they have a history of more regulation, more rent control, and more laws that are disadvantageous to property owners.

 

Just more reason … as to why we invest in the U.S. Midwest & South. They’re what I call the stable markets.

GDP fell 33% annually, the unemployment rate is high, and even the Tokyo Olympics have been postponed, all pandemic-driven.

Housing continues to hold up well. Nearly all assets are - gold, stocks, crypto, and some commodities. This is partly due to a weaker dollar.

The gap between “haves” and “have nots” widens in the pandemic.

15-year mortgage rates fell below 2%.

VP of Grocapitus, Anna Myers joins us to discuss real estate trends, market analysis, and where to invest for economic survival.

Neither she nor I see a “V-shaped recovery”. I’ve been saying this for five months.

Anna & I discuss real estate’s winners and losers in the pandemic.

With more people having shakier job situations, fewer qualify for loans. This increases the renter pool.

Winners: smaller cities, suburbs, e-commerce, tech, warehouses, places like Salt Lake City, Raleigh-Durham, Memphis

Losers: high density places, hospitality, medical, oil, long-term college.

Income over $75K-$95K does not increase happiness. 

Earning over $105K actually decreases happiness.

This is based on studies from Princeton and Purdue universities.

Then what’s the point of building wealth? You get answers.

These surveys do not consider replacing your active income with passive income. 

Matt Bowles of Maverick Investor Group joins us to discuss: market due diligence, pandemic changes, and how to use real estate to build lifestyle design.

We also discuss changes to the rental market from 2007 to today. Ten years ago, you could buy properties for less than replacement cost. No longer.

Markets like Phoenix, Dallas, and Atlanta have largely lost their investor-advantaged status.

Check out Matt’s podcast, called: “The Maverick Show”.

We compare do-it-yourself vs. professional property management.

New home price annual sales volume spiked in June. There’s a scarce inventory of suburban SFHs.

The co-founder of Avail, Laurence Jankelow joins us. Avail.co streamlines life for DIY property managers.

Avail is free. It enables you to centralize your: rental listings & applications, tenant screening, credit / criminal / eviction reports, rent collection, maintenance tracking, and even rent price analysis.

Becoming a landlord is like becoming a parent. There’s no certification course or degree required.

You cannot violate Fair Housing Laws. Giving one tenant a break - and not another - could violate Fair Housing Law.   

Smart home technology often still does not exist for the most profitable long-term rentals.

Rent collections during the pandemic continue to be greater than most people anticipated.

Avail is best for landlords with 1-9 rental units.

There is a general minimum standard for what landlords must furnish to tenants. It’s called an “Implied Warranty Of Habitability”. 

This includes: access to clean water, heat, electricity, sanitation, rodent-free, fire-safe, and meets local building codes.
