  1. made 12% in the stock market did year… glad I didn't do anything. Lmao. Come on. 12% for all that risk and work? That's insane.

  2. He takes more than three minutes getting to the point. He is very wordy. Morris Investment does a better job in explaining that subject in 5 minutes.

  3. I would say the less money you have, the more important ROI is. Deals with a higher ROI are harder to find, but worth the effort for the smaller investors. The additional cash flow they provide makes the next deal easier to finance and helps cover unexpected costs and vacancies.

  4. He says greater than the average roi of the stock market which is 7%. But later says if you want a number,then greater than 12%. For those of you waiting for the answer.

  5. Hi Brandon,
    l have a daughter in Howard University and l am looking for a house to buy around the school so l would rent it to her and her friends. Can you help me with any ideas. The houses around that area are so highly priced.
    Thank you.

  6. what are the differences of putting real estate properties in an LLC or in your personal name how much taxes are taking out if it's just in your name or if it's an under an LLC

  7. I've been very fortunate with my 2 residential properties. Bought 1 in 2012 (which I think was at the bottom of the market) as a potential retirement home for us for the future. We decided to rent it out until we're ready to move in. Obviously, price and location are important in your decision. We decided to hire a property manager to handle any tenant problems, collect rent for us etc. A property manager is an additional monthly cost but in my view well worth it. They will vet the tenants (back ground checks, verify employment etc and take care of issues like a leaking toilet etc). After ALL monthly debt (expenses) is paid, which includes mortgage payment , taxes, HOA fees, insurance, property manager fee, etc., our ROI (return on investment) is a tad OVER 30% which I think is amazing. This is NOT counting tax benefits or appreciation! Within 1 year of the first purchase, we decided to take a "risk" and purchase another residential property since the 1st purchase was doing so well. That one too is exceeding 30% after all expenses. Residential real estate is a tangible asset just like precious metals but that is a subject for another day. Having 20% to put down on your real estate purchase will prevent you from having to purchase PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) which will save you $$$$. Market investments aren't tangible. All you have is "paper" (stock). Even if the real estate market takes a dive, people will always need a place to live. This is my personal story and I hope it helps in some way.

  8. Thanks, Brandon. Great info as always. How do you choose areas that will likely have appreciation? I'm looking in a growing city but this area has 'happened' yet. Areas around it have been soaring though.

  9. This is good, but mine is simpler: How much cash flow do you get? If its $350 a month in cash flow, I'll get out bed, but $400 + a month is my standard. You only get that in certain markets, though, so you have to learn how to look.

  10. Thanks for sharing this. I've been a landlord/real estate investor for over a decade, and I appreciate a video like this
