Last week, I bought my 22nd rental property. It was a commercial property that was previously used as a restaurant. The property is not very large, and the lot is tiny, but it is in a great location. This is the second rental property I have bought this year, the first being a 68,000-square-foot strip mall. I bought the largest and smallest rentals I own in the same year. This property should be a great investment, but I have never tried to lease to a restaurant before. How many rental properties do I have and what are they? While this

Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone. Many people don’t want to take the risks or have the complete control that an entrepreneur has. For me, being an entrepreneur is perfect for my attitude and personality. When I was younger, I did not like authority, and I hated it when people told me what to do. One of the best things about being an entrepreneur, especially for me, is that I have complete control over my business and what I do. I do not have a boss telling me what to do, and I am allowed to make my own

I flipped 26 houses last year and over 155 in my career. There is no way I could flip that many houses without getting loans on them. I have more financing costs when I use a loan to flip, but I make more money overall because I can flip more houses. So how hard is it to get a loan on a house flip? House-flipping loans are much different than the 30-year mortgages you get when you buy a house to live in, and most lenders will not lend on house flips. There are options for flippers like hard money, private money,

The things I regret most in life are not the things I tried and failed at but the things I never tried at all. I can remember many instances in my youth when I should have taken a chance and done something. Those are the moments I regret most in life, not when I took a chance and things did not work out like I hoped they would. This lesson can be applied to almost anything in life, whether it be real estate, our personal lives, business, or happiness. If you find yourself not willing to take chances, you may

I just realized that I have never told the full story about the meth house my dad and I bought that burned down. We did not know it was a meth house when we bought it, but we found out soon enough, and then to top it all off, the house burned down, and we had to completely rebuild it. This all happened in 2003 when I first started in the business as an agent and helped my dad buy the occasional house flip. We bought this flip from the foreclosure sale and had no idea what meth labs were at

Almost everyone I know wants to make more money, but we are often limited by how much time we have. I run multiple real estate businesses and constantly struggle with finding enough time for everything. We concentrate on doing our jobs and running our business but many times ignore the best way to make more money. If you had more time in your life, you could easily make more money. We all have a finite amount of time given to us; we can’t add hours to the day no matter how much money we have. We all have projects in the back of

Zombie house flipping is a television show on A&E, and it is also a term for houses that have been vacant for years. I was sucked into the show the other day even though I get really frustrated watching house-flipping shows. I have flipped over 155 houses and have 16 flips going right now. I get really annoyed watching the house-flipping shows because they are so unrealistic and do not show the real numbers. I tuned into Zombie Flipping to see if the shows had gotten any better, and I was really disappointed. This one was worse than most of the previous

I have been a real estate agent and broker in Colorado since 2002. I have also been a real estate investor in the Colorado market. I keep a close eye on real estate, and I have been wondering if the housing market slowed down in Colorado. I am in the Northern Colorado area and have 16 house flips in progress. I am also the managing broker and owner of Blue Steel Real Estate. I need to make sure I stay on top of what the market is doing, and it appears to me that the market may indeed be slowing down.
