Our Editor's Take

The BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast started as a blog for real estate pros and beginners alike. At first, the BiggerPockets site goal was modest. It gave readers the knowledge they needed to reach their full potential. This simple philosophy, plus its helpful content and useful tools, made the blog a hit. The online community shot up to two million strong and continues to grow.

In early 2013, BiggerPockets debuted its BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast. Hosts Rob Abasolo and David Greene explore investment strategies three times every week. Each episode is usually around 45 minutes to over an hour long.

Like many of their listeners, both hosts had different careers before starting out in real estate. Former police officer Greene has purchased, rehabbed, and managed 50-plus rental properties. Greene leads a killer team of agents under Keller Williams. He is also an author and the founder of an award-winning mortgage company. His books include Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat, and Long-Distance Real Estate Investing. Abasolo used to work in the ad industry. His love of tiny homes, glamping, and Airbnb led him to unique property investments. He also enjoys creating content via BiggerPockets and his YouTube channel, Robuilt.

A look at the show notes confirms that the hosts pack a lot of wisdom into their time at the mic. This includes lists of all the books mentioned in the show, as well as additional content. Listeners also receive links to connect with the hosts and the guests. Many experts who appear on the podcast provide their contact info.

BiggerPockets has an ultimate goal. It is to help a million community members each build a million dollars in wealth. It's a lofty objective, but their path remains practical. The podcast's attitude is, "You make progress toward your goal, and you'll be helping us work toward ours."

905: Fannie Mae: Multifamily Is STILL Undersupplied, Rent Growth Likely w/Kim Betancourt

905: Fannie Mae: Multifamily Is STILL Undersupplied, Rent Growth Likely w/Kim Betancourt
On a national level, Fannie Mae is predicting the multifamily market to remain subdued in 2024. Ever since interest rates began to rise, multifamily transactions have slowed considerably. Kim Betancourt, Vice President of Multifamily Economics and Strategic Research at Fannie Mae, joins us to share the findings of a recent multifamily report. Kim knows that there are oversupplied multifamily markets across the country. Cities like Austin have become the poster child for what oversupply can do to home and rent prices. However, Kim argues that this is only a fraction of the overall housing market, and many markets are in need of more multifamily housing. So, if much of America is still struggling with having enough housing supply, shouldn’t rents be on an upward trend? Kim shares her team's findings and rent forecasts, explaining when rents could begin to climb, which multifamily properties will experience the most demand, and why we need MORE multifamily housing, not less.  In This Episode We Cover Fannie Mae’s 2024, 2025, and 2026 rent growth forecast for multifamily  A “tale of two markets” and why the “oversupply” narrative isn’t the whole story  Property classes and why B/C-class properties are seeing such strong demand  The one metric that points to a growing or shrinking multifamily real estate market  Why so many millennials are “stuck” as renters and can’t become homeowners  How rising rents could affect multifamily prices and boost valuations across the country  And So Much More!

904: Does the BRRRR Method Still Work in 2024?

904: Does the BRRRR Method Still Work in 2024?
For years, the BRRRR method (buy, rehab, rent, refinance, repeat) was every real estate investor’s favorite strategy. And it’s easy to see why. Using this simple formula, you can buy an outdated property, fix it up, lock in some solid equity, and then refinance, having the bank pay you back all the money you put into a deal. It sounds foolproof in theory, and up until 2020’s hot housing market, it essentially was. But things have changed. Home prices are higher than ever, mortgage rates are still double what they were during 2021, and everyone and their grandma now wants to invest in real estate, making more competition for these outdated homes. So, one big question presents itself: Does the BRRRR method still work in 2024? And, if it does, what are some ways to beat the competition and score a seriously good deal, no matter the mortgage rate? Well, we’ve got the man who literally wrote the BRRRR book on the show—our very own David Greene! David is giving his time-tested insider tips on how to build wealth with BRRRR, create more equity on your next home rehab, which new loans make BRRRR much better in 2024, and why you CAN’T rely on cash flow anymore, but you can rely on something MUCH more beneficial. Ready to get your first (or next) BRRRR done in 2024? This is the episode for you! In This Episode We Cover: The BRRRR method (buy, rehab, rent, refinance, repeat) explained Whether or not you can still do a BRRRR in 2024 (and if it’s even worth it) New types of loans for BRRRRs that make buying and cash-out refinancing MUCH easier  Cost-cutting rehab tips to make sure you don’t go over budget on your next home renovation The not-so-basic “value-add” potential you NEED to look for in your next BRRRR property Massive tax benefits, long-term wealth, future cash flow, and more upsides of doing a BRRRR in 2024 And So Much More!

903: 120 Rentals in 3 Years by Buying Multifamily During a BAD Market w/Brian Adamson
Would you buy multifamily real estate now? Asset prices are falling, mortgage rates are still high, banks aren’t taking on new loans, and every real estate “expert” thinks that the multifamily space is full of dead deals. If this was so true, then how did Brian Adamson build a multimillion-dollar, 120-unit portfolio with plenty of cash flow and seven figures in equity all in the past four years, a time of tremendous booms and busts in the multifamily market? Well, he’s about to show you! Brian started investing before The Great Recession but didn’t walk away from the housing crash unscathed. Thankfully, a few upside-down properties didn’t stop him from investing as he continued to do wholesaling and fix and flip deals from 2008 onwards. But, in 2020, he had a calling to start investing in multifamily during a hot market and in areas most real estate investors would run from. Fast forward close to four years later, and Brian has a rental property portfolio of over one hundred units, with tens of thousands in cash flow coming in every month and millions in equity. He bought when he shouldn’t have, in places investors run from, with loans even top investors refuse to use, but he came out on top. In this episode, he’ll break down his exact strategy, what and where he’s buying, and how much money he’s making, plus some real estate markets he’s bullish on in 2024. In This Episode We Cover: Massive multifamily deals that are making Brian a millionaire even during a down market A failed first multifamily attempt that cost Brian tens of thousands of dollars Investing in markets that most investors would NEVER even consider  The exact rent, cash flow, and equity numbers Brian looks at before buying How to use bridge loans to cover your rehab costs on a home-run deal Real estate investing markets that Brian is bullish on in 2024  And So Much More!

900: The Truth About Real Estate Investing in 2024 (What Investors NEED to Know) w/Brian Burke, J Scott, and Scott Trench
The old ways of financial freedom are gone. Before, buying a rental or two and repeating the process for a few years was all you had to do to find financial independence and retire early, sipping fruity drinks on the beach without a worry in the world. But now, that's over. The days of easy passive income are gone, but a new path to wealth is beginning to emerge, one that will still lead you to millionaire status if you’re strong enough (and smart enough) to take it. It’s the 900th episode of the BiggerPockets Real Estate podcast, and this is no ordinary show. We brought out the big guns this time. Brian Burke, J Scott, and Scott Trench, all time-tested investors, join us to share the truth about real estate investing in 2024 and answer the question we’re all thinking: “Is it still possible to reach financial freedom with real estate?” But that’s not all. We’re getting their takes on whether or not to wait for lower mortgage rates with monthly payments still sky-high, which strategies are working for them in 2024, which investors will get burnt during this investing cycle, and what a new investor can start doing TODAY to become a millionaire in the next decade. Plus, they share why investors should be fearful now more than ever and why the get-rich-quick influencers are about to get the wake-up call of a lifetime. In This Episode We Cover: Whether or not financial freedom is still achievable through real estate in 2024 Why waiting for mortgage rates to drop might not be the best move to make Investing strategies that are making money RIGHT NOW (and which to avoid) Why investors MUST have more “fear” if they want to survive in this market The slow, steady path to building wealth with real estate (this WORKS in 2024) What new investors should do RIGHT NOW if they want to get in the game And So Much More!

898: Making $175K in Instant Equity on Her First Real Estate Deal w/Lacey Russell and Sam Haack
What if you could make six figures on your first real estate deal? “Yeah, right! Where am I going to find a property like that?” you say. What if we told you that instead of finding a home-run rental property, you could build a better one? Now, not only do you have some instant equity once the house is built, but you also deal with none of the expensive capital expenditures, regular repairs, and common headaches that come with owning an older home. And you can do this even in the most expensive of markets. When Lacey Russell was looking for an investor-friendly agent, she turned to BiggerPockets Agent Finder, where she found her rockstar real estate agent, Sam Haack. Together, they realized that building a new construction rental worked FAR better than buying one, so Sam scoped the market for investor-friendly builders, and now, they’re off to the races. They’ll go through the full numbers of this real estate deal, from land costs to loans, equity forecasts, cash flow, and more! Want to find an agent just like Sam? Hop on the BiggerPockets Agent Finder, answer a few questions, and get matched with investor-friendly agents in your area!  In This Episode We Cover: How to find profitable real estate deals when your market is VERY expensive or has no inventory When building rentals beats buying them and how much instant equity you can make How to find an investor-friendly agent no matter your real estate market The type of lender to look for that’ll get you a lower mortgage rate  Finding a builder in your area that’ll work with your investor-first numbers What you MUST tell your real estate agent in the beginning to find success together And So Much More!

Where are the least-affected areas, and how do you ensure your rental property portfolio doesn’t go up in flames or get drowned out by the rising tide? Moody’s Analytics’s Natalie Ambrosio Preudhomme is on this BiggerNews to talk about one thing—climate catastrophes. Natalie spends her days looking through data on the financial implications of climate risk and how she can better help real estate investors navigate around or outright avoid the most devastating effects to come. Plus, researching what you can do to prevent property damage if you're in an at-risk area.  Natalie outlines how climate risk will force more local governments to increase regulations (and fines), the safest investing areas in the country, and whether the sky-high insurance premiums can continue. Whether you’ve got rentals, commercial real estate, or just own your own home, these risks WILL affect you, so pay close attention to Natalie’s insight. In This Episode We Cover: The financial implications of severe climate risk that go FAR beyond just rising insurance prices  New government-enforced emission regulations that will affect businesses  The areas of the country that will be least exposed to rising climate risk  The skyrocketing price of insurance premiums and why Natalie says something’s got to give Could the cost of construction rise as new energy-efficient homes become the standard?

893: 2024’s New BRRR Strategy: BUILD, Rent, Refinance, Repeat w/Natalie Cloutier

893: 2024’s New BRRR Strategy: BUILD, Rent, Refinance, Repeat w/Natalie Cloutier
Though only in her thirties, Natalie Cloutier has built a nine-million dollar real estate portfolio with just eight properties. Her secret to success? The “build-to-rent” strategy that so many real estate investors won’t even consider. Most investors feel that the building process is too complicated, expensive, and requires too much effort to be worth the time. But what if this “build-to-rent” strategy allowed you to create your own profitable deals, make massive amounts of equity, and build wealth even in a highly competitive market? After her parents shared their secret strategy to build wealth, Natalie realized that building rentals, not buying them, was her ticket to financial freedom. But how could she get started? She was a fresh college graduate with no money to her name. Thanks to a no-money-down construction loan, Natalie built her first rental property, a house hack, which ignited her multimillion-dollar real estate portfolio. In today’s show, she shares her “super secret method” to “building” wealth with the build-to-rent strategy, how to CREATE your own deals in ANY market, what you can expect to pay for a new construction home, how to find land to build on, and the biggest challenge that stops most investors from getting started (you CAN get around this!). Plus, how she’s doing it all in Canada’s unbelievably unaffordable housing market. In This Episode We Cover: The build-to-rent strategy and why building trumps buying in 2024  The EASIEST way to get into new construction (copy Natalie’s move!) How much you can expect to put down when building a new construction rental Tips to make your new construction rentals cost-effective and save tens of thousands  Where to find land to build on (it’s not as hard as you think)  The one move that will make building a rental MUCH easier for you  And So Much More!

891: How to Negotiate a Deal When It's Under Contract

891: How to Negotiate a Deal When It's Under Contract
We’re about to share the secrets NO seller wants you to know about. These secrets could save you tens of thousands of dollars on your next home purchase, and most buyers have no clue about them. In fact, these secrets are so rarely used that most agents don’t know how to take advantage of them until it’s too late. Today, we’ll unlock the best-kept negotiation secret in real estate investing: negotiating AFTER your offer has been accepted.  New investors and first-time homebuyers think the time to negotiate is BEFORE their offer gets accepted, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Once an offer is accepted, buyers unknowingly gain a TON of leverage—leverage that can be used to get seller credits, a reduced purchase price, concessions, and more. And this isn’t just some negotiation theory that works only in psychology textbooks. David has used these tactics NUMEROUS times to save his clients thousands of dollars and get them EXACTLY what they want out of the seller. And if you’re a seller, the reverse works in your favor. Knowing these negotiation tactics can help you STOP buyers from taking control once you’re under contract, giving you the upper hand while they struggle to find faults in your house. So, if you’re about to buy a property, are under contract right now, or WANT to invest in the future, these negotiation secrets MUST be followed to score a great deal. In This Episode We Cover: How to negotiate a real estate deal when you’re ALREADY under contract  The two stages of negotiation that most buyers/sellers have zero clue about Home inspection red flags that CANNOT be ignored (and can get you HUGE seller credits) The one thing you never, EVER ask a seller to do when under contract Seller disclosures 101 and what sellers must tell you about a home before you buy How to get a lower price, seller credits, or concessions while mid-contract  The one thing sellers should ALWAYS do (but DON’T) before they accept any offer  And So Much More!

890: 100% Bonus Depreciation Coming Back? (Do NOT File…Yet) w/Brandon Hall
The biggest real estate tax deduction is coming back. That’s right—100% bonus depreciation is almost cleared for a triumphant return as the House pushed a new tax bill to the Senate, one that includes some massive tax deduction potential for real estate investors and everyday Americans alike. So, why is this SUCH a big deal? We’ve got Brandon Hall, CPA, on to break down why bonus depreciation could save you tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars. Everyone knows that real estate boasts some of the best tax benefits of any investment in the nation. But, the one tax benefit to rule them all is almost always depreciation. This tax write-off lets you expense a portion of your property every year and can turn your real-life gain into a paper loss, so you keep your cash flow while avoiding taxes. But bonus depreciation is like regular depreciation on steroids. And the tax benefits can be massive. So, how do you take advantage of this huge tax write-off? What do you need to know BEFORE you take it? And should you hold off on filing before this new bill passes? We’ve got answers to all that and much more in this episode, so stick around! In This Episode We Cover: Four of the hottest housing markets in 2024 that we’d flip houses or long-term invest in The high-priced coastal market that we love…but wouldn’t buy rentals in A snowy northeast market that has low prices and big rent-by-the-room potential  A sleeper city with a big price tag but solid investing benefits The not-so-sexy market that made the number-one spot and surprised us all Unemployment rates, home prices, average rents, and top metrics you MUST check before investing And So Much More!

Do NOT buy rental properties. There’s a MUCH better way to build wealth. And we mean that literally, “building” wealth is the best path. At just twenty-seven years old, today's guest has built twenty-five homes, often making around a one-hundred percent return on his money, all without the hassle of the creaky floors, poor piping, and outdated electricals of old, “cash-flowing” rental properties. So, how is he doing it? Donovan Adesoro bought his first duplex in 2020. He took advantage of a zero percent down loan program, allowing him house hack a new build for just $3,000 out of pocket. But once he saw how much equity he could make, he realized he had to do more. So, Donovan linked up with other investors, overseeing the new build process in exchange for capital to buy land. He then used the plots of land as collateral for his new construction loans, and within six months, Donovan was the proud owner of a brand new duplex with TONS of equity included. But if you’re like most investors, you know NOTHING about new construction. Thankfully, Donovan, who wasn’t a builder by trade, breaks down the entire building, funding, and capital-raising process so you can repeat his system and start building your wealth instead of buying it! Plus, Donovan gives ACTUAL numbers on what he’s making for every new home and some expert tips on lowering your costs while selling for a high price!
