If you scroll through Manny Khoshbin’s Instagram, you’ll see wealth, success, and a lot of very nice automobiles. You may look at his life and say “well, that must be nice”, but there is much more to Manny than Ferraris and private planes. A few decades ago, Manny was homeless, sleeping in a car with five other family members, simply trying to survive in America.

Manny’s dad wanted to protect his son from entering the military in Iran, so two weeks before Manny’s birthday, the family packed up and left for the United States. They were homeless for a couple of months but slowly were able to find jobs and scrape together some money. Manny worked at a swap meet, a K-mart, a multi-level marketing company selling snacks, and other various jobs.

As he was working he realized that the people driving the Porches, Lamborghinis, and Mercedes were all investing in real estate. After making money in his entrepreneurial endeavors, he bought his first commercial property. Now, two and a half decades later, Manny is sitting on a billion dollars worth of real estate. Oh, and did we mention he bought this all without syndicating?

In This Episode We Cover:

Manny’s “American Dream” story from immigrant to multimillionaire

Why commercial real estate is such a profitable investment

Value-add opportunities and flipping commercial real estate over the span of a few years

Which real estate industries are on the downward trend (and which to invest in)

The steps new real estate investors should take to make it big

Why Manny’s luxury cars are an investment, not just toys

And So Much More!

    522: From “No Comma Paychecks” to 7-Figures Using These 5 Skills w/ Nasar El Arabi

    1:05:55

    Nasar El-Arabi is a self-proclaimed “failure” when it comes to being employed. He wasn’t cut out for the banking industry, the call center, or the classroom. Some people aren’t meant to be employed, and Nasar was one of them. As soon as he was able to get his start in real estate investing, he realized that this was a path that could help him succeed, all while challenging him in ways the W2 world didn’t.Nasar has been wholesaling, flipping, and landlording for over a decade. He has amassed a seven-figure net worth, due to his sweat, grind, and problem-solving. Nasar has put together his list of the five most important traits of any successful real estate investor. These traits aren’t what you’d hear at corporate, and they require those who are interested in investing to put in the time, energy, and creativity to thrive.If you’re interested not only in real estate investing, but becoming a full-time investor doing what you love, make sure you pay careful attention to Nasar’s advice. While these aren’t traits you can simply switch on or off overnight, they are things that you can develop over the years you are investing, which can help you build wealth, reach financial freedom, and give you the life you’ve dreamed of.In This Episode We Cover:How to invest in real estate while making a median income Diversifying your portfolio so you have multiple exit strategies and streams of incomeWhy every investor needs to “become a rookie all over again”Using creative financing to structure deals that benefit the buyer and sellerLeveraging partnerships to find cash, divvy up responsibilities, and purchase more real estateOwning a business and learning the skills that every leader needs to succeedAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets PublishingBiggerPockets BookstoreBrandon's InstagramDavid’s InstagramBiggerPockets Podcast 116: How to Quit Your Job Through Wholesaling, Flipping, and Taking Action with Nasar ElarabiBiggerPockets Podcast 500: Robert Kiyosaki: America’s ‘Rich Dad’ Sees a Real Estate Crash ComingBiggerPockets Podcast 330: How to Ditch Distractions and Get WAY More Done With Cal NewportClick here to check the full show notes: https://www.biggerpockets.com/show522See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    521: Leukemia & Bankruptcy to Retired with 250 Units in 7 Years

    1:06:37

    People often tell each other to “stay positive” in light of grim circumstances or hard times. This consistent positivity can feel forced when going through something truly terrifying, but it’s exactly what helped Jeffrey Holst fight cancer, get out of bankruptcy, and retire in only seven years. Once Jeffrey committed to having no bad days, he was able to either change his day that was going poorly or see the positive in everything around him.This philosophy helped him spur on new relationships, find new partners, and close on deals creatively. It was never “we can’t close on this” for Jeffrey, it was “how can we close on this.” He uses what he likes to call the “sideways eight” strategy that allows him to have infinite returns when investing, all while giving his partners and private lenders a sizable profit.Jeffrey also talks about seeing the positive attributes of negative situations, and how he was able to leave his job as a lawyer and hit financial freedom due to his cancer diagnosis and later bankruptcy. If Jeffrey was able to dominate the multifamily market with an underwater net worth, think of what YOU can accomplish in the world of real estate investing!In This Episode We Cover:Buying properties without credit, money, or experience Creative financing strategies that allow you take tackle bigger and better dealsFighting cancer and using hard times to fuel your success Managing a portfolio of two-hundred and fifty unitsThe “last life philosophy” and how it gives you a clear path to victory Syndicating on a small scale to close multi-million dollar dealsAnalyzing your market as a "boots on the ground" investorAnd So Much More!Links from the Show:Carlton Sheets Real Estate Course InfomercialMatt Faircloth's BiggerPockets profileTony Robbins' WebsiteHal Elrod's WebsiteFour Reasons to Invest in Real Estate episode on the Old Fashioned Real Estate Show hosted by Brian Levredge and Jeffrey HolstFeras Moussa of Disrupt EquityBiggerPockets Podcast 488: From 4 Units to 2,000 and Why Large Multifamily “Isn’t So ScaryWhitney Sewell of Life Bridge CapitalGoBundanceBiggerPockets Podcast 004: Commercial Real Estate Investing With Frank GallinelliBiggerPockets Radio Podcast 002: Starting Out with Karen Rittenhouse – Subject To, Direct Mail, and Investing from a Woman’s PerspectiveGenerational Wealth with Dr. Tony Pennells episode on the Last Life Ever PodcastAkamai Coffee WebsiteMike Tyson's WebsiteArnold Schwarzenegger's WebsiteShaquille O'Neal's Profile Richard Branson of the Virgin GroupCheck the full show notes here: https://biggerpockets.com/show521See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    520: $47k/Month in Rent, 0 Doors Owned | Rookie Takeover w/ Rafael Loza

    49:23

    The hosts look and sound a little different today. There are no beards and we haven’t heard one metaphor containing jiu-jitsu lingo... That’s because Ashley Kehr and Tony Robinson, hosts of the Real Estate Rookie Podcast have taken over the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast! Ashley and Tony regularly talk about how rookies can get their first (or next) deal, but today they’re combining expertise to talk about something more controversial: rental arbitrage.Rental arbitrage is a form of subletting that allows long-term tenants to make massive cash flow off of short-term rentals. Someone who’s done this to an extreme is Rafael Loza. Rafael was working the night shift as his W2 job when he found out about short-term rental arbitrage. He sat on the idea for a few months, but ultimately tried out the concept on an apartment. This one apartment took home a massive profit, allowing him to quit his job and scale to fourteen units in just nine months.Now, Rafael has twenty-four active units, all grossing thousands of dollars a month in rent for him. Back in March of 2020, Rafael was projected to bring in forty-seven thousand dollars in revenue in one month alone. But, the pandemic hit, forcing him to pivot, switch strategies, and take advantage of the flourishing short-term rental market. He has his sights set on ownership, but now he’s simply raking in the short-term stacks.In This Episode We Cover:Rental arbitrage and why it’s a low-cost way to get into real estate investingShort-term cash flow vs long-term appreciation and combining the twoThe startup costs it takes to create an arbitrage empireHow to pitch landlords on using their properties for short-term rentalsNegotiating leases and adding a subletting clause to any lease you undertakePivoting when your business hits a wall and combing back strongerAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBrandon Turner's InstagramTony's InstagramAshley’s InstagramReal Estate Rookie Youtube ChannelAirbnbVrboThe Real Estate Rookie PodcastClubhouseCheck the full show notes here: https://biggerpockets.com/show520See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    519: 5 Keys to Becoming a Millionaire on Less Than $100k Per Year

    1:16:11

    You may know Ashley Kehr from the Real Estate Rookie Podcast, but you may not know that only a short time ago she was a rookie herself. Ashley started as a property manager for a local investor and slowly made her way from owning one property to owning thirty-three long-term rentals, a short-term arbitrage property, two commercial units, and one mobile home park. Quite a diverse portfolio!What makes this even more impressive is that Ashley wasn’t coming into real estate with boatloads of cash. In fact, she and her husband have never collectively made more than six figures from their W2 jobs. So how does someone with a median income generate such a massive amount of cash flow, appreciation, and time freedom?Ashley discusses the five fundamentals of real estate investing that led her to seven-figure net worth. These fundamentals can be used by anyone, at any stage in real estate investing, no matter their experience level. If you’re ready to supercharge your investing and go from rookie to rockstar, commit to the game plan Ashley has laid out!In This Episode We Cover:How to invest in real estate while making a median income Diversifying your portfolio so you have multiple exit strategies and streams of incomeWhy every investor needs to “become a rookie all over again”Using creative financing to structure deals that benefit the buyer and sellerLeveraging partnerships to find cash, divvy up responsibilities, and purchase more real estateOwning a business and learning the skills that every leader needs to succeedAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets PublishingBiggerPockets BookstoreReal Estate Rookie Youtube ChannelReal Estate Rookie FaceBook GroupBiggerPockets Rookie PodcastTony's InstagramBrandon's InstagramDavid’s InstagramReal Estate Rookie BootcampBiggerPockets Podcast 348: Full-Time Job, Full-Time Mom, and Full-Time Wealth From Rentals with Ashley KehrBiggerPockets Podcast 500: Robert Kiyosaki: America’s ‘Rich Dad’ Sees a Real Estate Crash ComingClick here to check the full show notes: https://www.biggerpockets.com/show519See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    517: 5 Pitfalls When Buying These “Crazy Cash Flow” Properties

    1:06:23

    Avery Carl is the go-to contact for short-term rental investing. Her business, The Short Term Shop and The Mortgage Shop not only helps find properties and secure loans for prospective short-term rental investors but also helps guide investors through their first vacation property purchase. While this type of property can be a cash flow king, it also takes more management and a bit more time upfront to get the system oiled and operating smoothly.Since we last talked to Avery, she’s quadrupled her portfolio from twenty-something short-term units to ninety-six units, sixty-one of which are large multifamily properties. Avery gives an in-depth analysis on why short-term rentals should hold a place in every investor's asset collection, and the common pitfalls investors go through when purchasing their first short-term rental.If you’d like to learn more about building wealth through short-term rental investing, grab Avery’s brand new book Short-Term Rental, Long-Term Wealth!In This Episode We Cover:Why having short-term rentals can help real estate investors mitigate riskHow Avery added over seventy more doors to her portfolio in under two yearsThe wrong vs. the right questions to ask when buying a short-term rentalThe five things people need to avoid when making their first STR purchaseWhy you may want to “bear-proof” your next cabin in the woodsNot being afraid to ask questions when investingWhy you should buy Avery’s new book Short-Term Rental, Long-Term WealthAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets Podcast 364: Snowballing 6-Figure Short-Term Rental Profits Into Passive Investments with Avery CarlBiggerPockets PublishingBiggerPockets BookstoreAirDNAPriceLabsAirbnbVrboFacebook MarketplaceTuroRealtor.comVacasaCraigslistAmazonCheck the full show notes here: https://biggerpockets.com/show517See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    516: Are You an Asset or Liability to Those in Your Life? w/ Earn Your Leisure

    1:08:23

    Everyone knows that financial education is one of the most crucial things to teach children at a young age. It doesn't just set them up to be wealthy, but it gives them the tools to be confident, choose delayed gratification, and hopefully, impact another young person’s life one day. This is understood wholeheartedly by Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings, former financial advisor and school teacher.What had started as a small classroom experiment in teaching children financial literacy turned into a media empire. Rashad and Troy shared their class teachings online, which pushed them to create a course for the kids, and later into the Earn Your Leisure podcast, where they talk about everything ranging from high-value financial concepts to sports to entertainment and more.What keeps Rashad and Troy going is knowing that their work is allowing thousands of people to improve their life situations, whether children or adults. The duo not only talks extensively about the difference between financial assets and liabilities but about relationship assets and liabilities. This helps answer the question: who’s helping bring you up and who’s trying to keep you down?In This Episode We Cover:The importance of spurring on financial literacy for young kids How to teach your children about money and examples you can useThe role that playing sports had in Rashad and Troy’s livesAssets over liabilities and why you need to invest in relationship assets as wellStocks, ETFs, multifamily, and cryptocurrency investmentsStaying committed to your goals and following throughAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets Pro MembershipBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets Conference 2021BiggerPockets Agents FinderBiggerPockets InsightsEYL Episode #63 Money Machine by Earn Your LeisureAirbnbBrandon's InstagramDavid’s InstagramOpenDoor CapitalClick here to check the full show notes: https://www.biggerpockets.com/show516See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    515: Your Step-by-Step Guide to Buying Out-of-State Investment Properties

    1:08:57

    It’s not uncommon for investors to start out by buying properties in their home markets. It makes things like neighborhood research, rehabs, and tenant showings so much easier when you’re only a short drive away from your property. That’s how Dave Meyer, VP of Data and Analytics right here at BiggerPockets, feels.Dave is currently living in Europe and has invested exclusively in Denver, where he used to call home. Now, as an entirely remote landlord, he’s seen the data on how many markets (like Tampa, Florida) are doing phenomenally for appreciation and rent increases. David Greene, out-of-state investor and the man who literally wrote the book on long-distance real estate investing is here to offer some much-needed council.With David having the experience as an agent and out-of-state investor and Dave having robust housing data at his disposal, the two come up with some clear plans to invest in up-and-coming markets. David and Dave talk about cash flow, appreciation, wage growth, the investing “spectrum”, and why so many real estate investors aren’t planning far enough ahead.In This Episode We Cover:Cash flow vs. appreciation and which one matters most to youDeveloping your investment strategy and picking markets where it worksBalancing the benefits of real estate investing and the investing “spectrum”What makes a market appreciate and cause rents to rise?What to do once you’ve found a great market to invest inQuestions you should ask every out-of-state agent and property managerWhere Dave and David are both looking to investAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets Conference 2021BiggerPockets Agents FinderBiggerPockets InsightsBiggerPockets Podcast 108: Building a $350 Million Real Estate Empire Using the 10X Rule with Grant CardoneBiggerPockets Podcast 250: Grant Cardone on Multifamily Investing and Why You Should Never Buy a House!ZillowCheck the full show notes here: https://biggerpockets.com/show515See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    514: BiggerNews, October: How Small Landlords Can Beat the Hedge Funds

    1:10:34

    Once the housing market started to slide in 2007, smart investors began buying, and waiting, for rock-bottom prices to kick in. Investors were buying homes in some of the best markets for dimes on the dollar, and have seen massive profits whether keeping them as buy-and-hold rentals, BRRRR deals, or flips. While small investors started buying a couple of houses a year, institutional investors were doing far, far more.Private equity funds, along with REITs and hedge funds knew that foreclosed homes were a steal, and their economies of scale made it even easier to turn these financially mismanaged properties into appreciation and cash flow kings. As institutional investors began fixing up these homes, listing them for rent, and later selling them, the entire market moved in an upward direction. Now, first-time homebuyers are competing with these economic powerhouses to lock down their first primary residence or rental property.A man who has been covering this topic for years is The Wall Street Journal's, Ryan Dezember. Ryan has a keen understanding of what influences the housing market as a whole, why institutional investors are making the moves they are, and what this means for small mom-and-pop landlords. Dave Meyer also joins David Greene on this episode to discuss the ways small landlords can beat Wall Street at their own game.In This Episode We Cover:Why home prices dropped to the lowest point in 2011How the pandemic gave institutional investors more buying powerWho are the “wall street buyers” that are buying thousands of single-family homes?Why you should “find the tenant” before finding your next propertyThe “carbon monoxide” of investing that most investors aren't paying attention toHow institutional investors use economies of scale to rapidly rehab homesWhat small investors can do to beat institutional investors at the closing tableAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets Conference 2021BlackstoneZillowRedfinBiggerPockets InsightsBiggerPockets Show 515Check the full show notes here: https://biggerpockets.com/show514See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    513: Seeing Greene: BRRRR 101 - Loans, Deals, & Cash Flow

    58:15

    Welcome back to another episode of Seeing Greene with BiggerPockets Podcast host, top real estate agent, and BRRRR master himself, David Greene. Today’s episode touches on many topics that relate to the BRRRR strategy, ranging from financing, rehabbing, calculating cash flow, and where to find deals.Since the BRRRR method is such a popular strategy among real estate investors, we thought it best to have an episode that touches on so many aspects of the BRRRR strategy itself. Not only has David written the book on BRRRR investing, but he also continues to do BRRRR investing in his real estate career. This strategy is not only one of the best ways to get into real estate with low (or no) money down, it’s also a method that works on building generational wealth for you in the background.Have a question you want David to answer on the next Seeing Greene episode? Submit your video submission at Biggerpockets.com/david.In This Episode We Cover:Whether you should refinance a BRRRR in your personal name or an LLCUsing agents or wholesalers to find your next BRRRR propertyWhy some markets simply won’t cash flow (and why that isn’t necessarily a bad thing)The minimum cash flow requirements for a multifamily propertyHard money loans vs construction loans when performing a BRRRRHow to get financing when your property is not a traditional rental or commercial buildingAnd So Much More!Links from the ShowBiggerPockets ForumsBiggerPockets Pro MembershipBiggerPockets Youtube ChannelBiggerPockets Rental Property CalculatorBiggerPockets Podcast 501: Seeing Greene: How Soon Can I Refi? + 11 Other Real Estate QuestionsBiggerPockets Podcast 487: 10 Common Real Estate Investing Questions Answered by David GreeneBiggerPockets Podcast 473: Quitting the Police Force, Wholesaling, & Buying Notes with David Greene\Submit Your Questions to David GreeneClick here to check the full show notes: https://www.biggerpockets.com/show513See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
