Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Investment Counselor, Sara is back on the show. She joins Jason to discuss her three new properties in Memphis, how a client beat her to the punch on other properties she was interested in and just how competitive the market is right now. And in the client case study, Dr. David D’Ambrosio shares his experiences with the 1031 Exchange on properties in the Orlando and Indianapolis markets. He shares his opinions on why more high-tax bracket professionals are not investing in real estate and he asks Jason about what his next steps should be?

The beautiful thing about real estate is you can acquire an asset, get your money back out and still own and control the asset. Plus, you pay no taxes on the money you extract.

Key Takeaways:

[2:12] Sara just closed on three properties in Memphis and she wears PJ’s to bed.   

[6:16] Rate locks - Should you let it float or lock it in?

[9:15] Commodities that make up a house are copper wire, glass, steel, petroleum products are independent of any currency.

[23:25] The 1031 Exchange allows for only 45 days for identifying properties but up to six months to close.

[26:08] It’s frustrating more people, doctors in particular, aren’t investing in real estate. It’s an absolute no-brainer.  

[32:16] Local community banks will provide financing to investors after they reach their traditional property limit.

[38:24] Is it feasible to do a cash out refinance if you can get a sizable amount of cash?

[40:27] The deferred down payment option offered a nine-year break even point.

Jason Hartman breaks down some important topics in today's show as he talks about one of the vital assets you have in your toolkit, and that's your credit score. With so many different companies and credit scoring models, it's key that you understand what impacts your score. You need to stay on top of it (and make sure it doesn't get TOO high because then you're not doing enough of what Jason thinks you should be doing).

Jason also looks into what kind of a job the Fed has been doing on their charter, opposition to Amazon, Google and Facebook, the myth of the Rented Home purchase, and some interesting results from his recent DNA test.

Key Takeaways:

[7:29] Trump's opposition to Amazon and Jason's opposition to Google & Facebook

[13:43] If your credit score is too high you might not be borrowing enough money (but don't borrow for frivolous purposes, borrow for properties)

Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 302, originally published in February 2013.

Jason Hartman is joined on this episode by Steve Forbes, the editor in chief of Forbes Media, to propose and attempt to answer the question:  Why does government get bigger and bigger when we know it doesn’t work well? Mr. Forbes states that history proves free markets work for the people, while big and over-reaching government is about meeting its own needs.

In his book, Freedom Manifesto: Why Free Markets Are Moral and Big Government Isn’t, coauthored with Elizabeth Ames, the authors delve into historic events and statistics, showing that in every instance, big government promotes favoritism, stifles economic growth, dumbs down education, and creates an atmosphere of “rigidity and scarcity.” At the same time, it opens the door to corruption.

Mr. Forbes discusses the benefits of economic freedom, which promotes creativity and growth. Jason and Mr. Forbes also talk about current economic issues, including the bubbles that the Fed continues to create in the bond market and housing. “When government undermines money, bad things happen,” laments Mr. Forbes. “When government says it’s here to help, watch out!”

Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 176, originally published in July 2010.

Jason provides a unique commentary on the gulf oil spill, firing your investment property manager, buy and hold investing. Following the monologue, Jason talks with Steve Dexter about his book Real Estate Debt Can Make You Rich and long term investing. Housing and commercial property prices the lowest they’ve been in nearly a decade, this classic real estate investment guide is timelier than ever. Dr. Schumacher, who passed away in 2006, found that the way to a lifetime of financial security was to buy smart and never sell, and he built a $20 million fortune using his own savvy advice. The book, updated by Steve Dexter (an expert commentator for CNN/Money, CBS Radio and Fox TV), reveals step-by-step investment techniques that can work in the midst of a slow real estate market or a booming one for first-time buyers or seasoned investors, and for buyers of single-family residences, apartment buildings or shopping.

Steve's latest book is Buy and Hold Forever- How to Build Wealth for the 21st Century, one he co-wrote with the late Dr. Schumacher who was known as the ‘pope” of real estate investing. His first book Real Estate Debt Can Make You Rich published by McGraw-Hill, was rated one of the top 5 real estate books of the year by Bob Bruss, a nationally syndicated columnist of the Washington Post Media Group. Steve’s second book is Beat the Banks-Prospering in the Rising Wave of Bank Foreclosures. He has been a distinguished speaker at the Harvard Business School, Harvard Law School and their Graduate School of Design and has mentored many of their students about entrepreneurship and real estate investing. He also has spoken at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Business Management located in Chicago. He is also a member and speaker of NAREE (National Association of Real Estate Editors), a professional group of authors and major newspaper journalists who write about the national real estate market.

It's time to take another deep look into rates and ways to finance your properties. Jason talks to lender Aaron about what's going on in regards to rates today, how it's been changing in the last few months, and where to expect it to go in the future.

The two discuss how higher interest rates don't necessarily mean your investments can't make sense. Higher rates also mean more write offs on your taxes, plus your tenant is still paying your debts. So you might have lower cash flow, but it can still be a great investment that gets better over time with your locked in rate.

Key Takeaways:

[2:10] You must, you must, you MUST (promise me you will) get a home inspection

[4:52] There are events coming up on the East coast and in Hawaii, so figure out if you can make them tax deductible!

[10:51] Every new regulation requires someone be hired to make sure the lenders are adhering to it, which raises costs

[12:48] What kind of rates can you get today with 20% down?

[16:02] Are people still taking out adjustable rate morgages for investment properties?

[18:48] You need to get your mindeset right when it comes to your real estate business. It's not always strictly about the cash flow

[24:34] The inverse correlation between bonds and rates

[26:35] The best strategy ever is to lock in as many 30 year fixed rates as possible

[12:46] As a real estate investor, it's critical that you remember who your customer really is (hint: it's the tenant)

Jason Hartman kicks off the episode breaking down the OTHER 3 market types. No, he's not talking linear/cyclical/hybrid, today he's talking buyer/seller/broker markets.

Then Jason talks with Mike Moyer, creator of Slicing Pie, about how to partner with people on startups and real estate investing in a way that fairly incorporates everything people bring to the table.

Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 259, published in May 2012.

Jason Hartman and returning guest, Dan Amerman discuss federal policies and interest rates, which hurts the savers and fixed income folks. The artificially low interest rates are not working and create higher prices through inflation.

They also discuss inflation rates, in which the federal numbers are glossed over and do not match true inflation as experienced by the American citizens through food, fuel, and utilities. Manufacturers hide inflation by making products smaller.

Jason and Dan then talk about rental housing and how to arbitrage the inflation. Dan explains how to turn the fed policies around to our advantage. It starts with understanding cash flow investing and setting your safety margin. When looking at cash flows, rather than being all about the price, it’s more about the interest rate when it comes to a mortgage. In the process of creating non-free-market interest rates for banks and for the federal government, the federal government has accidentally made available subsidized mortgage rates that are available if you can get the lending.

It goes directly to your bottom line as the investor, resulting in much higher cash flows than you would see in a free market.

Jason Hartman, his mom Joyce, and Drew finish up their long talk about property management practices. This time Drew throws some questions toward Joyce about how to walk the line with a tenant while still keeping a good personal relationship with them, tenant retention, and Jason's theory on the pinball effect that can happen when you own enough places in one market.

Key Takeaways:

Jason Intro:

[2:01] Occassionally you may have difficulty with insurance when you self-manage

[2:56] The riskiest part of self-managing is the tenant turn

[6:34] Join Jason on a trip to Sweden or come to San Jose for the next JHU event

Joyce & Drew Interview:

[9:34] One of the nice things about not being near your investment properties is that you CAN'T go over and meet anybody

[11:56] How to retain tenants, and how to get rid of deadbeats

[14:16] Once you've formed a relationship with a tenant as a self-manager, is it awkward to raise the rent on them or enforce late fees, etc?

[18:38] When do you build the expectation of rent increases into the relationship?

[25:39] Why the hybrid management is the best system, and what to expect from your realtor helping you

[28:15] Do self-management styles change based on the type of neighborhood your property is in?

[31:46] Jason's pinball effect when you have enough properties in one market

Jason Hartman and Karl Deninger, author of Leverage and his blog, “The Market Ticker,” get together to discuss the economic structural imbalances around the world. Karl started “The Market Ticker” to warn investors about impending ruptures in the stock market after he figured out the illegal methods happening in the tech boom and crash that left many of his friends bankrupt.

He stresses the importance of knowing how we got where we are today and offers solutions to actually put the system back together on a sustainable basis. In his book, Leverage, Larry explains the problem in that all geometric systems are unsustainable for the long term, such as Medicare/Medicaid, trade deficits, deflation from productivity, deflation of fiat money, and much more.

Mr. Denninger is the former CEO of MCSNet, a regional Chicago area networking and Internet company that operated from 1987 to 1998. MCSNet was proud to offer several "firsts" in the Internet Service space, including integral customer-specified spam filtering for all customers and the first virtual web server available to the general public.

Mr. Denninger's other accomplishments include the design and construction of regional and national IP-based networks and development of electronic conferencing software reaching back to the 1980s.He has been a full-time trader since 1998, author of The Market Ticker (http://market-ticker.org), a daily market commentary, and operator of TickerForum, an online trading community, both since 2007.
