Pardon the grammar – I’m an Engeneer, Enginere, Engenere… I’m good with math!

________Here are the Show Notes________

Dealing with an eviction:

“Hi Lane! I delivered an evection notice to tenants yesterday and had the opportunity to speak with husband at the door. He stated that he and his wife had both started new jobs and would be able to make one full payment in a week (this was the story for seemingly a month or two) and would be able to make a partial payment in 10 days. Before we proceeded forward with an agreement, wanted to see if that works for you. They are currently $3,000 behind before for a total of two months.  

Here is what I did…

I okayed the concession to give more time. I requested some sort of proof of new job status (a hire letter or email). I am more than willing to work with people… These have been long tenants of almost a couple years and B+ /A- home that rents for $1500 a month.

Caveat… I am really near to selling these properties this year and don’t really want to rock the boat in terms of enforcing long-term behavior.

Revamping my turnkey rental content – simplepassivecashflow.com/turnkey

I have currently sold 2 of 10 SFH rentals (P&L offer)

One of them Columbia is had $27K to get back online. Going to pay 37K to sell retail.

Another property Riverwood just went vacant. Going to pay 20-30K to sell retail too.

  • Talked with my team – PM, Contractor, couple other hui members
  • Is it a good area to go retail
  • Will I recoup capital overlay based on comps

Soon I will unrolling my private lending platform. CrowdfundAloha.com! So if you are looking for a 1st lien property with my partners let me know. We are talking about even providing turnkey services.

This is not really a money making things cause the margins are just really tough these days.

After over 1000 strategy calls with investors and coaching clients over the past couple years here is what I tell W2 employees… For those who are able to save more than $30k a year or have substantial liquidity (over 200k), being a landlord and especially flipping is a lot of work. If you like it cool/good for you… but just remember why we got into this… To be free from a JOB. A lot of us (80%) who stumble upon simplepassivecashflow.com and start drinking Kool-Aide will be financially free in 4-7 years pending taking action. So I always urge people to start with the end in mind and take a more passive approach.

Do the math here… you with 300 dollars per property (2 months of work to buy a turnkey rental) you are going to need 20-40 of these to replace your income. I have 10 of these and have systems in place but have 1-2 evictions a year and 3-4 big things that happen. Image if I had 30, just 3 x those numbers.

Directly investing in a turnkey rental or small MFH is a good way to start to learn and build up the war chest to go into my scaleable investments such as private placement syndications. Whatever you do, try to be as close to the investment as possible. This is the fundamental problem I have with Wall Street who takes too much fees off the hard-working efforts of the middle class.

Looking at some deals. So folks in the Hui Deal Pipeline Club (who have reached out to me and built a relationship) will see those really soon. 😛 I hope I have enough liquidity… I might need to borrow some money 😛

Single Family Homes becoming a legitimate asset class – Spring 2018 Conference

The lending requirements and new loan products is slowly changing. I know a lot of you have heard that Short Term Rentals (Air Bnb) income is starting to become part of the loan calculations.

Something I’m following is lending on large portfolios of single-family homes. Some of the highlights:

1) up to 10-year term with 1.25 DSCR

2) portfolios minimum size of 50 properties

3) assumable

I read this following article that described rent concession in a few major cities that I like as apartment markets.

http://www.nreionline.com/multifamily/more-apartment-landlords-offer-free-rent-lure-tenants

Here is another article citing industrial as the sector to be in:

http://www.nreionline.com/industrial-cre-market-study/exclusive-research-clear-sailing-industrial-sector-through-2018

My takeaway is that this is important to monitor especially if you are developing because this is a leading indicator of softness in the market. It might be economic reasons or just because a bunch of new build inventory is coming online in that area. Either way…

Robert Kiyosaki has a saying, “there are three sides to a coin”.

People argue that its a good time to buy or bad time to buy. For example “mfh” is overheated or commercial is getting killed by Amazon and e-commerce. I think these are mental justifications by tire kickers not to do anything.

Sophisticated investors live on the edge of the “coin”. They buy deals out our reach of amateurs due to the lack for network/knowledge. These opportunities are undervalued, with undermarket rents, with value-add opportunity.

They are patient and don’t stray from standards that make them get crushed in a market correction. (Cashflow from other investments make this possible) They invest following the macro and micro trends and don’t gamble on gimmicks such as guessing where Amazon’s next HQ is going or where the hurricanes just crushed a market.

The trouble is as an outsider is figuring out which of these deals transcends the two side of coin and is on the edge. And starting out its going to be slim pickings due to lack of network but you have to push through this rough part.

I am from the camp that you need to become an expert or get beyond the surface level investor stuff in some freebie pdf guide or video. Or just find the right people to work with. To many people get shinny object syndrome and float from sector to sector, from a money-making activity to another, read book after book and never get anywhere. You see these people at a lot of networking events. There is a lot of movement but no tangible results. This is where coaching comes in but for some people not able to get over having another person call them out on their BS you need to get laser focused and take massive action or quit fooling yourself.

I’ll be at the notebuyerbootcamp on the panel for syndication in Chicago next week. Notebuyerbootcamp.com

Turnkey Wisdom (2012-2018)

Dear prospective turnkey investor,

The following is my constantly updated guide to turnkey. (Updated 4-2018) Email me for any additions or feedback. In the spirit of the Hui Deal Pipeline Club where we crowdsource due dilligence together!

Today I buy apartment buildings like this 193 unit in San Antonio but it took me almost ten years to get there.

As much as I poke fun at the asset class and jokingly call it “turkey” instead of turnkey rentals it all started here and is the foundation of my investing portfolio.

 

I bought my first couple rentals back in 2009-2012 in Seattle (Primary market/no cashflow). As the prices started going up I was forced to go out of my comfort zone and purchase out of state rents because I needed cashflow in order to achieve my goal of replacing my W2 income as an engineer. I bought one I Birmingham, without seeing it and set up a professional property management company to manage the day to day. That was proof of concept for me to sell my two Seattle rentals and buy 9 Properties in 5 Months via 1031 Exchange.

I work with a lot of engineers and a lot of them say they get analysis paralysis because they like data. I call them out of it and tell them they are just scared and losing $500 of opportunity costs and time per month! A real engineer would look at the numbers. IF rent minus expenses (with contingency) minus mortgage is greater than THEN fricken do it!

Example of capital expenses that need to account for in your expenses and contingency.

Let me be clear, I don’t flip or wholesale or do any of that. I have a W2 job and not looking for another job or chore. I am all about leveraging my money and more importantly, time. For people like you and me who live in places (Seattle, West Coast, Hawaii, East Coast, to name a few) where the Rent to Value ratio is 0.5% or less we have no other option.

It drives me crazy when the Real Investor Peanut Gallery (internet forums) say we are overpaying… well if I didn’t have a life then licking stamps and swindling distressed buyers I could buy at a good discount too and probably do it better too;)

My full-time professional job that earns more per hour than most folks even in real estate and more than these Turn Key providers do. So I’m like “Sure… I’ll pay retail and rely on their volume and expertise.” Its all about leveraging your highest and best use, which maybe your day job.  Sorry.

The problem is that you have to find the right property and people to work with. And have a mentor so you are not getting screwed. Investing for cashflow is not a get rich quick schedule but a prudent way to build lasting wealth a few hundred dollars at a time.

When I first started buying the rehabs done by the turnkey guys in the blue collar areas, if you posted “hey I’m looking for turnkey” in the forums you get the usual suspects soliciting you for marked up properties. It’s off market because they rehab it for the investor with more durable and less visually appealing materials than your normal retail product. I’m all for the wholesaler to make money because they do spend a lot of time and money on mailers and advertising but the layers of middlemen who add no value is excessive and is almost as bad as Wall Street.

These days’ people in the Hui Private group are not on internet forums. They say its 95% of active people who are not high paid professionals and marketers. Here is some of the chatter:

 

The most important thing to do is to grow your network.

So you can bounce ideas off other investors and not a salesperson. I still do free calls but please review the free content I have put on this website first. No, I do not just give recommendations to good people to buy from because things change and I am not going to throw my brand around like that. And by the way that’s an “ask-hole.” I know your character and the trajectory of your success but how you add value to others first instead of taking first. Some people are unaware of this which is why I’m saying something so I aplogize. This could be the reason why people are not helping you out and you feel like a lone wolf.

Webinar with 2018 trends is sent out to Hui Deal Pipe Line Club members sign up below:

I don’t really see much difference in the secondary markets with robust economies (Memphis, Kansas City, Birmingham, Atlanta, to name a few). I have tried to set things up so my different markets complement each other. For the most part I buy in the 1.1-1.3% RV range. I take home 70% in 2015 but now in 2017, I buy in the 0.9-1.1% RV range and take home 60% of the rents after all expenses (vacancy and Cap ex).

I made this diagram in 2016 and it illustrates some of the popular “secondary markets with robust economies” that a lot of out of state turnkey buyers like to invest in. Things have changed a little but as you can see you can either have appreciation or cashflow. It’s tough to get the best of both worlds.

I stress NOT to spend too much picking a market. If you sign up for the newsletter as a Hui member you will get more than enough data to create analysis paralysis. The biggest thing you can do is vet the people. As you can see the same principal is what I use in my syndication due dilligence: 50% people & 50% the numbers of the deal.

There are three ways to purchase a turnkey rental:

  • Marketer – I would not recommend going through a marketer, they don’t even invest themselves and they did not add any value. The only one I can recommend is Marco but that is because I know like and trust the guy. By the time I bought my 3rd rental I knew way more than those folks did. Unfortunately I probably overpaid by a few grand on each of those first few properties not knowing what I don’t know, Work with me only if you want to compress time and want me to look over your shoulder to get my unbiased opinions and guidance. Plus you will be setup with a plan and not shoot yourself in the foot like I did by buying a dozen non-scalable investments.
  • Direct from Turnkey Provider – You cut out the middle man and go direct to the source, theoretically getting the best price. Just know that you are not represented by a broker who supposedly has fiduciary responsibility to you. (BTW never trust a broker) The transactions are done with their paperwork and their rules. They are the pros and its dangerous for a newbie to go down this route. There are household Turnkey Providers (TKPs) out there but I call them the “Prada of Providers”. You pay for what you get and often times more than what it’s worth – I’ll just say you are paying over 105% of retail.
  • Hybrid method – When I was going through my buying spree in 2015-2016, I was going (off market) via an agent that had fiduciary responsibility to me to check all the BS that the providers give you – this is what I recommend only after going through the process a few times. Usually the agent helping you is not an investor and does not really know what type of amenities/floor plans and locations are best for rentals. You will need to drive the ship.

You seemed bored reading… There is no such thing as turnkey. Check out these disaster photos from an eviction that ended up being a $37K repair bil… https://photos.app.goo.gl/R4PZLuOLGHONO5Rl2

As I was in the middle of my 1031 buying spree (#6 of 11), a lot of TKPs started to come out of the woodwork and offered their properties to me and gave me the royal treatment (discounted prices from what they normally offer). I got to meet a lot of them via meetups and national conferences because I had this podcast and they were interested in getting at the Hui Deal Pipeline Club ecosystem. Since I was pretty experienced and they liked working with me they offered me referral fees to simply send guys like you over to them with a simple “CC’ed” email. Sort of like a referral source where they would give me $1000 per home sold. I thought it made sense for them because it was a lot cheaper than paying $6000+ to a Marketer (#1 above), but as you know when you go with a marketer or this sort of referral program the buyer (you) don’t really get any value add.

Personally, I’m not really into picking up $1000 referral checks and passing you off to the TKP (never to hear from you again) since I’m more looking to give back to other investors and build my network for my larger syndication deals in the Hui Deal Pipeline Club. I think turnkey rentals are ok for people starting.

After over 1000 strategy calls with investors and coaching clients over the past couple years here is what I tell W2 employees… For those who are able to save more than $30k a year or have substantial liquidity (over 200k), being a landlord and especially flipping is a lot of work. If you like it cool/good for you… but just remember why we got into this… To be free from a JOB. A lot of us (80%) who stumble upon simplepassivecashflow.com and start drinking Kool-Aide will be financially free in 4-7 years pending taking action. So I always urge people to start with the end in mind and take a more passive approach.

“I have B- class rentals and high that rent for at least $900 a month and I am still having a hard time selling dang properties to other cheapo investors”

 

Do the math here… you with 300 dollars per property (2 months of work to buy a turnkey rental) you are going to need 20-40 of these to replace your income. I have 10 of these and have systems in place but have 1-2 evictions a year and 3-4 big things that happen. Image if I had 30, just 3 x those numbers.

Directly investing in a turnkey rental or small MFH is a good way to start to learn and build up the war chest to go into my scaleable investments such as private placement syndications. Whatever you do, try to be as close to the investment as possible. This is the fundamental problem I have with Wall Street who takes too much fees off the hard-working efforts of the middle class.

I currently work with one business who I can align with because they offer sort of a hybrid between the marketers (I know you know the reasons why to stay away from them) and going straight to the TKPs since you lose a lot of the protections when you do that and it’s sort like signing agreements in the “wild wild west”. The reason I do it this way is that I get a licensed agent that has a fiduciary responsibility to your best interests and guides you along the transaction as you buy through the TKP. Basically it’s like having MLS agent to cover you for the off market deals. All the properties are aggregated from only the good TKPs and the same price that you will find on the weekly digest that is sent out by the local TKP. This is the way I buy my properties and if nothing else it’s good for browsing what’s out there.

Can you please recommend a good turnkey provider? You said you would help…

Short answer is not really. A provider will try to size you up and try to pull a fast one on you when they get the chance. I will not endorse anyone! The only way to protect yourself is to network with other investors by providing value first – if you are a cheapo. If your net worth is over $300K, have at least $50k liquid, and have a time crunch (kids) I think it’s a no brainer get me on your team and stop screwing around.

There is really no reason why you cannot put in an offer on a property and start collecting $300 a month with a $25K down payment in under 90 days. Someone who is still “reading”, “contacting investors”, or “picking a market” frankly lacks focus (finish one course until success) or scared of making a move. Every day you don’t do anything is $500 a month of opportunity costs!

My rentals in Seattle were cash flowing each with $600-800 a month but it was because I bought at the right time and I did not look at the numbers like a sophisticated investor does. Although my cashflow was good (bad in terms of percentages) I realized that my return on deployable equity was very low, in fact it was under 5%. Now each rental I get typical cash flows by $350 but I think of it like $250 to be conservative and more importantly, my money is not being lazy. I think if you’re making less than 8 percent you’re better off in the stock market despite my aversion toward stocks or mutual funds. A sophisticated investor does not say “well… at least I’m able to cover my mortgage”. They are constantly monitoring their return on equity.

I wasted a lot of time in 2012-2013 looking for rentals in King, Snohomish, and Pierce county (Washington state) and nothing cash flowed. I still have the spreadsheets where I underwrote how crappy the Cashflow was. Now prices are even worse.

I helped dozens of people with this out of state investing game and have pretty much figured it out after making a bunch of mistakes that I didn’t realize till later – this is why it makes me laugh with the “do it yourselfers”.

One mistake I see people making is going after these sucker properties that only can be sold to “Californians,” “Hawaiians,” or any rich person not from the area perceived to have trees that money grows on, from a trust fund, and drink seven Mai Tais on the beach everyday. (Personal Note – I have lived in Hawaii for about six months now and I have only been the beach twice).

These types of people (not follows of SimplePassiveCashflow.com) like to pay a plumber for ten hours to fix a small toilet leak.

Sucker properties are in the wrong area that none of the locals would touch with a ten-foot pole. They are C or D class properties that the Broker calls “B-Class or good area” and usually cost sub $60K for $750 rents a month.

“It may look good on paper but stick to rents that are higher than $900 a month”

The second thing I see newbies doing is buying 2-8 unit properties after hearing all the good things about multi-family and scaling. I think most highly paid professionals will graduate to syndications (which is why I structure business and own investing around them) and therefore will need to sell these SFHs to move up. The exit strategy on selling 2-8+ just is not there. They look good on paper but the exit strategy kills you. If you are thinking you are going to hold on to these properties for cashflow for 7+years think again because that is not what sophisticated investors do because they monitor their ROE and they know the cap-ex tidal wave will hit them in year 5-12 taking back all those profits from the earlier years.

How many turnkey homes are people buying. Here is one data set I found from one popular turnkey provider. Takeaway – most (82%) get a few properties and the rest don’t get it or are too lazy.

The main thing is building the relationships and knowing who has the integrity out there. More importantly, you have to buy a few and go through the process of buying/selling and operating a while to learn how this mouse trap works. Tactically, it’s no different than what I have learned in corporate America (although I’m trying to leave the rat race) by setting expectations and keeping people accountable via email remotely. Trust but verify and financial freedom will be yours.

“I started the Hui Deal Pipeline Club because I want to see each of you get to your goals financially so you can focus on what is really important to you. There are other fundraisers out there that will train their investors down to 10-15% IRRs on crappy deals and do “deals to do deals” or to pick up acquisition fees. Between investing alongside you folks and wanted to grow my track record the right way with the best product I know you guys will keep coming back and bring your friends.”

Loan Consolidation

Do I pay off my student loans or invest?

It depends… What interest rate is your debt and how much is your return rate if you invested.

From the macro sense if your rate of return from investing is higher than the rate of interest you pay to your debt servicer then you should invest. Duh. It’s simple. If you don’t get that then that’s what’s coaching for.

Sophisticated investors are able to make 30%+ annual returns with simple rental property (More info – http://simplepassivecashflow.com/returns/). The right choice there is… Invest! What are you waiting for?

Beware your problem might be lazy equity (SimplePassiveCashflow.com/roe) and the opportunity costs are eating you alive. Oh, the cost of ignorance!

All too often I just see this “student debt” or “debt” as a really lame excuse not to get started.

Below are a few affiliate links to loan consolidation companies that can help simplify your debt payments and get your focused on making more money instead of paying off debt.

I tell people you want to minimize your money paid upfront and put money into investing so you want to structure your payments to be more drawn out. Don’t worry too much about the interest rate. Loan consolidation also makes things a little easier because time should be spent on more meaningful things than sitting in front of a computer getting a handle on this stuff.

Quantitative Tightening in Early 2019

Quantitative Easing created $3.5 trillion from 2009 to 2014

Now “Quantitative Tightening” is coming and will drain liquidity from markets

No launch date but says late 2018 but here is the Fed’s schedule

 

Do I think there will be a slight correction but the FED is trying to get back some “dry powder” to be able to stop a monumental slide? If there is a 10% plus correction the FED will go back to QE3-QE4.

In the end, don’t freak out just buy investments that are undervalued. If you are new well sorry you need a mentor or you need to push through lukewarm turnkey deals as fast as possible.

Join the Hui Deal Pipeline Club! SimplePassiveCashflow.com/club

I’m doing some research on Crowdfunding sites (although I always prefer working directly with the operator as opposed to using these middlemen platforms). A lot of Hui Deal Pipeline Club members have been collaborating on this.

Have you used any of these platforms? Lets crowdsource deals and due diligence!

Here is a podcast I did with RealityShare – http://simplepassivecashflow.com/podcast-97-investing-via-crowdfunding-sites-open-country-club-chat-reality-shares/

As a syndicator I don’t like using these sites to raise funds because 1) I don’t have access to the investor contacts which totally kills the referral marketing for future deals and 2) we tried it on a previous deal where the Crowdfunding site committed to raising a small portion of our total raise and they fell on their face.. Not saying that the Crowdfunding sites will never be effective but at this time it is not a useful means for experienced syndicators who already have investors of their own.. So beware as an investor… its like trying to find a mate on Tinder (this is a controversial subject I know) but for many there is a reason they are on the “open market” and cannot attract “capital” on their own from their own personal network.. Just saying… 

Fundrise & Realty Mogul have launched “eREITs” which tries to tackle investment vehicles other platforms are not capitalizing on.. It’s interesting to watch how they trademarked “eREITs”.. Definitely a sign where investing is going.. Again institutions controlling and taking a cut away from the little guy.. 🙁

Blackhat tactic 😉 – Some deals are put out to private networks (like the Hui Deal Pipeline Club) and these crowdfunding sites simultaneously.. Many times the crowdfunding site offers a 7% preferred rate where the direct source offering gives a 8% preferred rate… tricky tricky if you ask me.. Now one could backwards engineer this all and go around the crowdfunding site but still like I always say YOU DON’T KNOW THESE GUYS.. Syndicator’s are running around out there without any operator experience or portfolio of their own and doing deals with people just off referral.. A recipe for disaster if you ask me..

Here are comments from Hui Members:

“I’ve invested in 10 you have listed and am familiar with quite a few others.  The best on your list are yieldstreet.comgroundfloor.us and streetshares.com. I have had 12-14 % returns with all three.  Hedgable.com is also a good site for investing in the stock market.”

“Some of the companies have questionable backgrounds make sure you google ‘company name + sec infraction;'”

“Just too much default rate”

“You are right! If you can find private placements skip these sites altogether”

“Sometimes you can use these CF sites to find the deals and google the operator. Often times if the CF site has it as a say 8% pref, going to direct to the operator will give a 9% pref”

“Groundfloor – I have not invested money in them but I have taken 2 loans on the borrower side and the experience has been mixed. They are fairly young start up and have many of the issues associated with that – high staff turn over and regular process change which has made the process a little frustrating. The sales person who managed the start of the process moved on half way through the loan being set up which resulted in the amount of the loan being incorrect, the structure of one loan was correct and the other wasn’t (interest paid monthly not accrued until the end) and the timelines were off. The good: the interest rates are low in the space so they offer good value (6.5%), the points paid are reasonable (I paid 2) and the loan is not income dependent but based on credit score and the LTV and project itself which was helpful for my borrowing criteria. You have to provide a monthly update on the project and they hold you to this and so I get the impression they do a good job of protecting investors money. Would I use them again? I’m not sure! It has been a pain but I also appreciate that they are committed to doing better. I now have a good private lender which is easier for me to use so would probably go that route and use groundfloor as a back up if needed.”

“Crowdfunding sites allow you to diversify amongst private offerings via the internet.  The website operates as a Broker-Dealer role and the supposedly “vet” the deal and sponsor.. Supposedly… yea whatever in my opinion.”

“Here is my issue. I always prefer working directly with the operator as opposed to using these middlemen platforms.. A lot of Hui Deal Pipeline Club members have been collaborating on this”

The returns started around 15% using my criteria but have leveled off to about 8% since then and I expect it to remain as this level.”

“Lending Club – This is UNSECURED debt. This is also known as peer to peer lending.. Like a guy needs to borrow 3k for a table saw for his business or someone has a broken car.. Good user experience and the information on the dashboard provided is much more readable than Prosper.com.. One user says “my net annualized return is 12.37 % and Adjusted net annualized return is 5.6%.. Both information is easily readable on the dashboard and it gives an easy to read view of the payments of how much principal, interest, late fees.. Also gives a good view of the notes itself like issued, in grace, fully paid, late by 16-30 days.  It has automatic re-invest and liquidate quickly.”

“PeerStreet – Works like Lending Club but is Secured by real estate.. They also give you quite a bit of information on borrower as well as the property details (LTV, Stressed LTV, Improved LTV, borrower’s FICO, etc).”.

“Prosper – It does same as above Lending Club but not as good dashboard information interface.. It has automatic reinvest.”

“Yieldstreet –  It’s for accredited investors only – So basically for people who are Rich already!”

“Some of the more established crowdfunding sites are starting to lower their returns because they have achieved a good sized crowd.. It’s still a wild wild west space with many platforms/website jockeying for position.. Many are offering high rates of return and under-collateralizing themselves in my opinion for market share.. Beware some have fraud in their past so make sure you do a little Google-stalking to dig up the dirt.. When I evaluate deals for the Hui Deal Pipeline Club, I realize there are so many deals out there that if someone has a questionable past, I just move on.. Too many good people doing good deals to not be choosy.. This is a newbie mistake I see a lot in private placement investors that they marry the first deal they get pitched at a local REI meeting.. It happened to my partner who lost $45K and myself who lost $40K.”

“Overall what I hear from you folks trying this method of investing is that the default rate is higher than what is expected and the middle man (crowdfunding site) is getting rich here.. But hey if you are not good at networking these are the table scraps you get.”

You should also ask me about the time I had to pick between the Google IPO and a new couch (I picked wrong!)

criteria in your site, insights from looking at all though sites, and your recommendation for people to invest in rentals, crowd funding, or direct syndication.

2) Something that you have recently or thought about “burning your cash” on for time savings or an improvement in quality of life.
[Andrew] After leaving my last job (CEO of an ed-tech company for 5 years) right after my second child was born, deliberately moved to a lower-cost-of-living place and dialed down work commitments to have more time with my kids while they’re young. Definitely worth it! But I’ll never forget the night I was putting my son to sleep soon after my daughter was born and contemplating the return to a very demanding job that was only going to get more so, and imagining myself 5 years in the future wishing I could trade the money I’d made for more time with the kids while they were growing up.

3) Something that you changed your mind on? Our ego often gets in the way of greatness.
[Andrew] Having kids definitely changed my perspective about the opportunity cost of my career trajectory. Has helped me see the benefits of a more balanced portfolio approach compared with driving 1000% down one path.
Also, what it means to have a “balanced” or “diversified” portfolio. Was profoundly influenced by Nassim Taleb’s “Anti-fragile” and the concepts of convex and concave risk (and the notion of a “barbell” portfolio).

4) Anything we missed and contact info if you would like anyone to get a hold of you. URL?
[Andrew] I’m a voracious reader, and as a side project I started posting lengthy reviews of books that have shaped my thinking about leadership, strategy, business, and more. I’m also super into meditation and mindfulness, and have written about 10 books that helped me apply mindfulness to my life in general, and doing better work in particular.

And speaking of books, 13 years ago I wrote a book about Microsoft Word of all things.

 

Financial Planners & the Death of the “Fiduciary Rule”

This topic really fires me up! Here is a little humorous video to lighten the mood. Warning its going to be 20 minutes so better put the sign on your desk saying you are “away at the toilet” or “away at lunch.”

I’m not a fan of Suze Orman/Dave Ramsey because of their scarcity/fugal money saving ideas but for some people who can’t seem to save two pennies to save their life, I guess it is better than nothing. 

Suze’s WTF face @4:41 when the caller says their financial planner recommended buying an annuity. (that would net a 5% commission!)

@4:00 – Financial advisors make commissions and often put you in investments that are best for them.

Obama tried to do a good thing and pass a law where all financial professionals (like brokers and insurance agents) had to adhere to the “fiduciary” standards—meaning they’d have to work in your best interest if they were advising you on your retirement investments. But this died recently and there is no more fiduciary rule – https://www.wsj.com/articles/fiduciary-rule-dealt-blow-by-circuit-court-ruling-1521164915

Federal Department of Licencing discussion on conflicts of interest or kickbacks to the tune of $17 billion – https://www.dol.gov/newsroom/releases/ebsa/ebsa20160406-0

I don’t recommend any financial planner because I don’t take financial advice who is still working for a paycheck and not out of the rat race (lives in their parent’s basement) but if you must go with one of my friends or a flat-fee one – http://www.fpany.org/

I have heard of these guys/gals do their sales pitch and use fear-based words like “diversity”, “security” and “risk” where the 25-year-old kid is trying to sell random investments to me. And don’t get me started when I tried to tell them about the being your own bank concept. #FacePalm They just tried to sell a higher return (6% whoop-ti-doo) with no liquidity. Totally not what I was going for. Not saying these guys are bad people, they just don’t know and products of the Wall Street institutions.

Note: When I call out financial planners I am also calling out brokers and insurance salespeople. Repeat never listen to a broker!

Share this with your co-workers & friends/family that still believe in the Easter Bunny (happy pre-Easter!) and have a false sense of security in what this financial planner says.

Jordan Goodman has spent the past 40 years focused on one mission: to help Americans do better with their money. In a career spanning newspapers, magazines, books, radio, television, live events, teleseminars, and the Internet (www.moneyanswers.com), he has helped millions of people to solve their financial problems and realize their financial dreams.

An honors graduate of Amherst College, Jordan had just received his masters degree from the Columbia University School of Journalism in 1977 when he launched an award-winning, consumer-oriented newspaper insert, INFO, which reached 4 million readers every week. That early foray into consumer journalism soon led to an 18-year stint at MONEY, the foremost personal-finance magazine in the U.S., where Jordan reported and wrote on every aspect of personal finance. During his tenure at MONEY, he also became a regular presence on radio and television programs around the country. When Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel of the “Today Show” wanted to refute some of the more dubious strategies of financial guru Charles Givens in 1986, it was Jordan they asked to face down Givens. When Ted Koppel needed a financial expert to explain to “Nightline” viewers the implications of the stock-market crash of October 19, 1987, it was Jordan to whom he turned.

While at MONEY, Jordan also began to write the first of his 14 highly acclaimed books on personal finance. The Barron’s Dictionary of Finance and Investment Terms (1984), which Jordan co-authored with John Downes, has been translated into Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese, and Chinese, and has sold over 3 million copies worldwide. Now in its ninth edition, it is considered a classic in its field and a staple on the syllabi of college personal-finance and business courses, MBA classes, and securities training seminars.

In the 33 years since the dictionary was first released, Jordan has also written:
• Barron’s Finance and Investment Handbook (1986, co-authored with Downes) that provides a comprehensive analysis of every form of investment, plus a multitude of important investment resources. (The ninth edition came out in 2014.)
• Everyone’s Money Book (Dearborn, 1993, 1998 and 2001) a 970-page comprehensive financial reference that included over 6,000 resources and sold over 250,000 copies.
• The Everyone’s Money Book Series (Dearborn, 2003)
(including six separate volumes on Credit; Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds; Real
Estate; College Financing; Retirement Planning; and Financial Planning)
• Reading Between the Lies: How to Avoid Becoming a Victim of Wall Street’s Next Scandal (Dearborn, 2004) aimed to educate consumers shaken by Enron-era debacles.
• Master Your Money Type (Warner Business Books, 2006) about the different psychological styles with which people relate to their finances, and how to minimize their weaknesses and maximize their strengths to build financial well-being.
• Fast Profits in Hard Times (Grand Central Publishing, 2008) that anticipated the current financial downturn and provides readers with investment strategies that allow them to make money even in a down market.
• Master Your Debt (John Wiley, 2010) which explains the many changes in the world of debt and offers specific resources to help readers pay off their mortgages in 5-7 years instead of 30 years, get control of their credit card debt, student loans and all other kinds of debt.
• The Ultimate Guide to Student Loans (CreateSpace, 2014) which explains how to save and invest before a child goes to college, how to get the best student loans when they get to college, and how to pay them off as quickly as possible after graduation.

It’s been 20 years since Jordan, in such demand as a keynote speaker, author, and guest expert on radio and television, left MONEY to focus on independent projects. He is the host of the weekly national Money Answers Radio Show which appears on the online VoiceAmerica Business Radio Network at www.voiceamerica.com. Once or more each week, he appears as a commentator on major TV news networks such as CNN, CBS, ABC, Fox News Network and Fox Business Network. During frequent trips around the country, he is a guest on local and regional radio and TV stations as well as a keynote speaker for such diverse audiences as the military, corporate employees, college students, and trade association members. He also participates in non-profit personal-finance-literacy programs such as those sponsored by the Jump$tart Coalition. And virtually every day, often several times a day, from a microphone on the desk in his home office, he speaks to millions of listeners through his regular guest appearances on countless radio shows. These include such prominent programs as “Sunday Morning Magazine” on KMOX that reaches numerous Midwestern states; KOA’s Money Monday hour with Mandy Connell in Denver, WCCO in Minneapolis with Jordana Green, WGN in Chicago with Steve Cochran.
Along the way, Jordan also has reached vast national audiences as a weekly commentator on CNN’s “Business Day” for 3 years; on Public Radio International’s “Marketplace Morning Report” weekly for 6 years; on the Mutual Broadcasting System’s “America in the Morning” daily for 8 years; and as a guest expert on NBC-TV’s “News at Sunrise” weekly for 9 years.

The son of a father who was a political-science professor for 32 years at the Ivy League’s Brown University, and a mother who was a dedicated community-service leader in Providence, Rhode Island, Jordan early on melded his father’s focus on world events with his mother’s emphasis on serving others. His parents’ formative influences, combined with his firsthand experience of a traumatic family financial crisis when he was a teenager, in large measure explain both the career path he has pursued with such passion and the reasons why he is today widely known as “America’s Money Answers Man.”

In all he does — in his books, his media appearances, his live speeches, his teleseminars, and even in the hundreds of email replies he crafts each month in response to listeners who write to ask for his advice, Jordan:
• teaches the underlying principles of responsible personal finance.
• makes clear the impact of current events on the consumer’s wallet.
• provides outstanding resources that can help the consumer to take the next smart step.

We have the best “propeller hats” in the Hui Deal Pipeline Club

Over the past year, it has been an honor to get to know you in the Hui Deal Pipeline Club. The average member is under the age of 55, engineers/IT, geek out on data, and very adept at looking up stuff on your own. You guys will balk at deals that get you under 12% a year!

That said if you guys are finding good deals or operators let me know because I know you are Googling this stuff into the night!

Another Hui member built this free web app to get the preliminary data and crunch the numbers automatically for you on an SFH.  Check it out at http://propalyzer.info         

No login required. Please reply back your suggestions so I can give them back to the developer.

I’m working on a concept of buying new build turnkey rentals (getting the financing for you) and working them as a group. Let me know if this appeals to you.
