Podcast 150: Update on My Brokerage, Flips, and Rentals

On my 150th episode of The InvestFourMore Real Estate Podcast, I go over my business, which has been a little crazy lately. I started a new real estate brokerage in April, which we have been getting up and running as well as remodeling a new space. I am still flipping a lot of houses, but I have not been buying as many flips as I would like too. I have not been buying a lot of rentals, but the one rental I bought this year has been doing very well. On the podcast, I talk about all of this, the

What is the Best Way To Use Contractors to Repair Fix and Flips

I have flipped over 150 houses in my career, including 26 last year. I have worked with many contractors over the years and done the work on flips myself as well. I have learned a lot, but I am still learning and tweaking how I repair my houses. Even though I have done this for many years, I had to recently fire a contractor who had been working with me for three years. When doing over 20 flips per year plus remodeling rentals, I have to find new contractors all the time. I wish there was an easy button I

Podcast 149: Creating a Million Dollar Real Estate Team with Christopher Watters

On this episode of the InvestFourMore Real Estate Podcast, I interview Christopher Watters, who started Watters International Realty. Christopher started out in the real estate business at a young age, but it took him a while to find his niche as a real estate broker. He obtained his real estate license right after college but was distracted by a number of jobs within the real estate industry before he started his own company. Christopher created a huge real estate team and then created a large real estate brokerage with multiple offices throughout Texas.  On the show, we talk about Christopher’s

A Positive Surprise when Flipping Houses

I try to be a positive person, but sometimes I feel like I post a lot of negative things on YouTube or Facebook. I have been very fortunate and can’t complain about where I am in life, and I try to post bad things that happen to teach others. If I can show the mistakes I make or circumstances that are out of my control, it may help others avoid the same situations. By doing, this some people are turned off by investing because they see all the things that can go wrong. However, there is much more than can and

What is the Difference Between a Manufactured, Mobile, and Modular Home?

I posted a video on one of my recently completed house flips last week that was a manufactured home. I got a lot of comments from viewers who thought it was crazy that I would flip a manufactured home since they are so hard to finance. Many people thought it was a mobile home, which is almost impossible to finance. Some people even thought it did not have its own lot, which would make it even harder to finance. When you are dealing with manufactured, mobile, and modular homes it can be very confusing. I did not know the differences

Why Buying a Lamborghini was a Great Investment

I bought a Lamborghini Diablo almost 4 years ago. It was a life-long dream to own a Lamborghini, and seeing it arrive in my neighborhood is still one of the best moments of my life. I did not buy the car as an investment, but it has worked out to be a great one. The car has increased in value; it has been a great marketing tool; it has helped me network with some amazing people; and it even got me a real estate deal. It was not an easy decision to buy the car. I bought it much sooner

Podcast 146: Super Successful Wholesaler with 24 Year-Old Ryan Dossey

On this week’s episode of the InvestFourMore Real Estate Podcast, I interview Ryan Dossey. Ryan is a super-successful wholesaler and an investor. Ryan got started in real estate at a very young age and has found incredible success. He is only 24 and has set up a wholesaling business and bought many rentals.

How to Deal with Stress and Doubt in Real Estate

This has been a crazy year for me so far. I bought a huge building; I have had a lot of flips going; I started a real estate brokerage; and I have had to let people from my team go. It is really easy to get stressed and freak out about everything. But getting stressed and freaking out will not help anything get better. How do I deal with things when they are not going exactly as they should be? How do I deal with stress or the fear that I am making huge mistakes? How do I deal with
