Key Lessons on Finding the Right Real Estate Business Model for You
In this episode, we jump on the Diary of an Apartment Investor podcast with Brian Briscoe to discuss more on how things started for IHG and share valuable lessons we gained while pivoting our business. The image that most people associate with the words “real estate” is that of a salesperson showing a house to a hopeful family. The reality is that there are several types of real estate, as well as verticals and business models that fall under that industry. Many of them are very underrated and sometimes unknown to people just starting in the industry. In order to be successful in real estate, either as a realtor, developer, investor, buyer, or any role you need to get informed about the different types and understand them. In most of these roles, your success will depend on you finding the right type of real estate and/or business model. Don’t miss a chance to learn from lessons that cost us a lot to learn. Tune in now to learn more! Key Points: - Intro (00:00) - Steven’s background with real estate (01:57) - Why IHG went with self-storage (06:35) - What does it mean to invest with purpose?

That’s exactly when we decided to shift our focus towards making passive income. And what better way to do that than by investing in real estate syndications? After all, they don’t require as much time commitment and they are the perfect way to build generational wealth! Why do we love syndications? And why should you as well?

How to Become an Accredited Investor
When you first start looking into real estate syndications, you might get overwhelmed and confused by the terminology used. And this is exactly what we’re discussing in this week’s episode!

So, what are the specific criteria you need to fulfill to become an accredited investor? What’s the difference between accredited investors and sophisticated investors? And what are the advantages of being an accredited investor?

Retirement 2.0
Do you ever think about retirement? Here at Free From Wall Street, we think about it all the time, and we’re actively planning for it, because there’s no time like the present! Retirement is one of the main reasons we got into passive real estate investing. We didn’t want to leave something so important to pensions and 401Ks.

Because of frightening statistics like this one, we started thinking about a new type of financial plan for later life that we like to call Retirement 2.0. How does Retirement 2.0 work? Why should you choose this path for your future? And how can you save for it? In this week’s episode of Free From Wall Street, we answer all these questions and more, so tune in to learn everything you need to know about Retirement 2.0, why you should be looking into it, and how you can leverage passive investing to get the retired life you want!

We want to share updates on the deal we’re just about to close, the Summerwind Apartments. This is a 120 unit apartment complex just outside of Dallas. As in every deal, there’s been ups and downs, and the purpose of this episode is to share some valuable lessons for operators and investors alike! We were supposed to close this deal at the beginning of October, but we’re still going back and forth with the bank. So what happened? First of all, banks are now aware there might be tumultuous market times ahead. This is why we’ve all been going double and triple checks to make sure everyone’s capital is safe. Another aspect of this deal is arranging rules around occupancy and making sure the new tenants are meeting our parameters. We’ve been going over some of these with our seller and lender, and we learned some important things in the process. We also want to offer a glimpse into our relationship with new tenants, the way we run our buildings, and how our deals benefit different non-profits we support. As an investment company we are financially driven, but investing with purpose also means making a positive impact in our communities! Key takeaways Some issues we encountered at the last minute (00:55) These are the things you need to pay attention to (05:56) How we develop a relationship with the new tenants (11:10) Here’s how you can get involved in one of our deals (12:26) Additional resources Take charge of your financial future and visit Free From Wall Street to learn about five things that your financial advisor didn’t tell you!

Behind the Scenes: A Post-Closing Deal Overview
In this episode, we are going to pull the curtain on one of our recent deals, the National Road. We want to go through what went right, what went wrong, and what we can do better next time. Hopefully, this helps you avoid some pitfalls in your investments! We closed this deal during the pandemic, so there were some special challenges involved. Were they avoidable? You can hedge yourself enough, but at the end of the day, you can’t predict everything. With this deal, we knew we needed a bridge loan to do it and run the contract. But it was March and the COVID hit, so all credit facilities were shut down. What to do then? In this episode, we will tell you how we worked through to close this deal successfully. It wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies, but there were some valuable lessons there. Today we want to share what those obstacles and lessons were, so you can take note and maybe apply it in your investments. If you have some experiences of your own to share, please get in touch, screenshot the episode and tag us on our Instagram! Key takeaways How we entered into this deal and what we found there (00:56) The problem we ran into with the seller and how we solved it (05:50) The second issue and the valuable lesson we learned from that (08:32) Why it’s so important to look back and review your deals (10:02) Additional resources Take charge of your financial future and visit Free From Wall Street to learn about five things that your financial advisor didn’t tell you!

Non-Profit Spotlight: Coming Together to Save and Love Life
In this episode, we want to highlight another one of the non-profits we partner with. My guest is Justin Reeder from Love Life, a ministerial organization that aims to create a culture where people run to local churches instead of abortion centers. Justin will share some staggering data on the number of abortions performed nationally. For him, the mission started when he realized that he couldn’t just stand by and watch people die. Beyond the pro-life or pro-choice talk, what’s important is that every parent knows that they have an option beyond abortion. That’s exactly what Justin and Love Life provide: love, resources, and guidance to parents who need it. Today he will share inspiring stories of lives saved and he will tell us about the work they do across the country. We are always honored to host one of our non-profit partners on the show. As you know, every deal we do generates passive income for one of these organizations we support, so when you partner with us, you get much more than just return on investment!

How to Future-Proof Your Retirement Plans
In this episode, we’re going to discuss different ways you can invest and plan for your retirement. Whether you’re doing 401k or IRAs, your wealth in retirement depends directly on where and how you invest your money.  A lot of us have money in the stock market but are you ready to roll the dice and see where the volatility leaves you? Diversification is good, but I want to shed some light on different retirement options that are much more stable than the stock market. Stuffing money into your 401k and giving the reins to the Fidelity is not the smartest decision you can take. Also, in 401k plans, you essentially partner up with the government and trust them to lower the taxes in the future. There are ways to eliminate hope and trust out of this equation. With a self-directed custodian, you can rely on techniques that will ensure and protect your retirement.  In this episode, you will learn how you can self-direct these investments and take charge of your future.  Sounds good? Make sure to tune in! Key takeaways How volatility affects your retirement funds (00:48)   Understanding the 401k and how to take control (04:42) Making self-directed retirement investments (08:04) The rules that govern 401k and IRA transactions (10:47) How to be proactive about your retirement plans (13:10) Additional resources Take charge of your financial future and visit Free From Wall Street to learn about five things that your financial advisor didn’t tell you!

It’s Not What You Make, It’s What You Keep
Welcome back to Free From Wall Street! In this episode, I will break down five tax benefits of investing in real estate syndication. I’ll also touch upon the real estate professional designation, and what it can mean for your career. Here at Integrity Holdings Group, we invest in real estate syndication. That means bringing different investors together to buy large commercial assets. In this episode, I’ll explain why real estate is one of the most tax-advantaged asset classes there is. First, you need to understand that the Tax Code, the way taxes are written, that’s basically IRS giving you incentives on how to invest. And if you do it right, you get a lot of benefits, and you get to keep a lot of the profit. The tax benefits depend on your position too. It’s different if you have a regular job, or if you’re a real estate professional. But there are ways to do both, and that’s what I’ll talk about today. So if you want to learn more about the tax benefits you get as a real estate investor, make sure to tune in today!
