Ep.162 | Interview With MHP Owner and Broker Enon Winkler on How To Navigate A Challenging Capital Market

Ep.162 | Interview With MHP Owner and Broker Enon Winkler on How To Navigate A Challenging Capital Market

November 23, 2022

In today’s episode, we welcome Enon Winkler. He is a mobile home and RV broker who owns and operates mobile home parks while doing some third party management from time to time. He crushed it at multifamily back in 2004-2009, and continues to be vertically integrated with the properties that he owns at present. Basically, our guest is a jack of all trades. 

Enon empowers his people to be entrepreneurial, and to do what it takes to go the extra mile. For him, it's all about figuring things out and creating a team culture where everyone really thrives on getting stuff done and learning. Together with his partners, they manage a bunch of third party properties, and they just selectively kind of pick and choose which ones they want to manage. It takes a lot of bandwidth to manage properties and they do not want to get too far out of their radius.

Tune in to this episode to learn more about Enon’s story and how important it is to stay engaged in this industry!

Ep. 161 | Interview With Bryce McMurry on Growing A Portfolio With A Contractor Mindset

Ep. 161 | Interview With Bryce McMurry on Growing A Portfolio With A Contractor Mindset

November 9, 2022

In today’s episode, we welcome Bryce McMurry to discuss how you can grow your portfolio with the help of his expertise in the contractor field.

Bryan and his partners have “adding value to properties” as their niche in their construction projects. He emphasizes that property values may be stagnant because of a shortage of construction skills. However, there could be a lot of time management involved.

That is why when real success happens in your business, the ability to effectively manage your workload is a crucial factor. A new survey finds that excessive workload is one of the main reasons developers are turning away from construction, so being able to manage your employees' workload and other tasks is very important. 

Bryan advises; “Don't be the guy that's just hanging out in the office. Go on site. Walk the property, and talk personally to all the contractors.” This way, you add value to your property and improve how you properly manage your business.

Ep. 160 | Interview with Jonathan Gilmore on the Dutiful Execution of TIC Drop and Swap 1031 Transactions

November 2, 2022

In today’s episode, we discuss how not to pay taxes.

Did you know that when you invest in real estate, you face tax problems? And not just when you sell the property, but at every step along the way. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a service that dutifully executed all of your 1031 transactions?

A 1031 tax-deferred transaction can be a well thought out strategy for deferring taxes but missteps in execution can be expensive. There is little room for error when it comes to executing TIC Drop and Swap 1031 transactions, so it is vital to have an experienced tax attorney or accountant overseeing the entire transaction and ensuring that all forms are filed correctly, as well as making sure your money stays in the hands of your investors.

Tune in to ensure a successful transaction as Jonathan and I share our knowledge, tricks and experiences.

Today, we discuss both the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords when it comes to property real estate renting and or leasing.

A landlord’s desire for security and a tenant’s right to a safe and habitable residence are often at odds. A lease agreement is more than just a piece of paper — it lays out the legal terms agreed upon by two parties. As in any contract, breach of the agreement can be grounds for eviction.

Ep. 156 | Ferd Niemann on How To Write A Cover Letter to LP or Passive Investors

Ep. 156 | Ferd Niemann on How To Write A Cover Letter to LP or Passive Investors

September 21, 2022

Today, we discuss the importance of a written correspondence especially for investors. Most real estate transactions require some form of written contract, and it's very important that this portion of the transaction be addressed quickly and efficiently!

Even simple verbal agreements can cause major problems, especially during periods of high volume. Many investors rely on automatically generated e-contracts which have been customized to their needs.

A lot of people don't realize that the way you word a letter can have significant consequences on its outcome. A written correspondence is vital to protect your interests and is essential to protect both the buyer and the seller. It provides the recipient with clear notice and evidence of your intentions in a timely manner. 

Hence why it's so important to be precise when writing a legal correspondence in real estate.

Ep. 155 | Ferd Niemann on How and When to Use a Master Lease with Option to Purchase

Ep. 155 | Ferd Niemann on How and When to Use a Master Lease with Option to Purchase

September 14, 2022

Today, we discuss what a Master Lease is and how and when you can use this for purchase. 

Master Lease is a controlling lease that gives the lessee the right to control and sublease the property during the lease. The lessee has equitable title to the property while the owner retains the legal title. It is commonly used in commercial real estate deals.

When you want to purchase intermediate amounts of space and want to obtain maximum flexibility without being bound by long-term commitments, then you surely should consider using a master lease.
