Coffee Talk- Finding Business Opportunities Through Networking

How To Start Real estate

Listen in as Mark Podolsky, the Land Geek and Jeran Fraser, CEO of Reserveland.com talk about networking basics.  Mark talks about a book he read called Coffee, Lunch, Coffee, by Alana Muller.

When you’re an entrepreneur and have a land investing business, the one thing you need to be doing is networking because that person may be an unbelievable opportunity, a channel, or a resource in a different aspect of growing your business.  If they aren’t, they may be an opportunity for something else down the road.  Networking basics, based on the book involve:

  • Taking the risk,
  • Getting out there,
  • Meeting people,
  • Being yourself,
  • Being authentic, and
  • Not being afraid to ask people for help.

It also helps to be generous first.  Somebody gave Mark two books and he was appreciative.  His way of networking was to start with generosity. That was an interesting way to do it.

Starting A Real Estate Business: What To Do First

How To Start Real estate

In this episode, Mark Podolsky, the Land Geek, talks about the most basic things you need to think about when starting a real estate business. He discusses the questions that people have been asking him.

  • What’s the best way to invest in real estate?
  • Should I start with an LLC?
  • Should I start with a real estate website?
  • Should I start making offers?
  • Do I need any other type of corporation?
  • Should I talk to a CPA?
  • Should I talk to a lawyer?
  • What do I do first?

Mark’s practical answer to the most important things you need to do from Day 1 is that you have to engage in activities that will generate income first. Mark strongly suggests that you have to start making offers. The next thing you need to do is get educated. These two things will help you generate more income and not make you incur expenses.

To answer the other questions, Mark says that there is a difference between playing business and actually doing business. Do the hard stuff first before you do the fun stuff. The hard stuff consists of getting educated, learning your market making offers, closing on deals, marketing those deals, and generating income. For now, Mark advises you not to have a website yet because all you have to do is go to places where people are already looking for real estate.

After doing all of these, you can now do the ancillary stuff like having your business cards made, building a website, talking to your lawyer and your CPA, and deciding on what type of corporation will best suit your needs. These don’t have to be done from Day 1.

Coffee Talk with Erlend Bakke on How to Never Work Again

ErlendBakke

In today’s episode of Coffee Talk with The Land Geek, Mark and Erlend talk about his book Never Work Again. This book was on Erlend’s Vision Board for many years because he believed that writing a book would position him as an expert in outsourcing.

Now that Erlend has written Never Work Again, he plans on writing a bestseller that will make it to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Amazon. Mark and Erlend also talk about contacting many influencers and if just one of them expresses interest in the book, then it would be easier to market Erlend’s new book.

Erlend talks about the process of writing a book. He says it’s a project that takes a lot of time and investment but it helps you do some serious soul searching. A major point of the book is saving time and enjoying life through outsourcing. They talk about fulfilment, achieving your goals, and lizard brains, monkey brains, and the higher brain. Finally, they talk about the Flow and how people who are able to achieve this become the best at what they do.

Coffee Talk — The Risks of Tax Lien Investing

Mark Poldolsky

In this episode of Coffee Talk with the Land Geek, Mark Podolsky discusses the risks of Tax Lien Investing.

It is a phenomenal strategy, which will allow you to make a higher return on your investment, without all the headaches of renters, rehabs, renovations, and rodents. You can make an average of 2-24% on your money.

However, there are risks that come with Tax Lien Investing.

  • In the due diligence, if you buy a tax lien but you find out it’s a piece of raw land and the owner has no intention of paying off the tax lien, you’re not going to make money on the tax lien. The property might have to be foreclosed. This can be avoided if you purchased the property straight from the owner. Do you want the property in case you have to foreclose on it?
  • There might be code enforcements that are in place. It may include taking care of the upkeep of the property and paying municipal fines. These can destroy your returns.
  • There might be Government Arrears. You might find out that you’re not even the rightful owner of the tax lien.
  • Legislative and Court Rulings change all the time. These changes in the law may render your tax lien useless or puts it in jeopardy.
  • The tax lien owner may file for bankruptcy.

You can make 300% to 1,000% on a cash flip or owning the land. You do a little more work if you market the property and sell it but it’s not that difficult. You still have to spend the same amount of time doing due diligence on the tax lien to make 16%.

Mark Chats with Frank Rolfe – 8th Largest Owner of Mobile Home Parks in the World

frank-pic

 

In this episode I chat with Frank Rolfe, the 8th largest owner of mobile home parks in the world. Frank discusses how Conrad Hilton inspired him to take chances and propel his business forward – big time. Conrad believed in going on the attack during recessions and depressions and it really paid off for him.

The lesson Frank wants to share is this: When times are tough, don’t crumble or hide from it; that’s the time you take whatever ammunition you have and go on the attack. Frank wants us all to remember to never give in – there are always opportunities during depressions for those who are brave enough to go for it.

Mark chats with Sharon Vornholt of The Louisville Real Estate Gals Blog

In this episode I chat with Sharon Vornholt founder of The Louisville Gals Real Estate Blog and host of Let’s Talk Real Estate Investing Podcast.  Mark and Sharon share a virtual cup of coffee while they discuss the main reasons investors fail.

Sharon shares her insight into the reasons investors fail.  According to Sharon, marketing is the key.  It’s important to maintain multitple marketing strategies AND make marketing a priority.  According to Sharon, investors should schedule marketing time into their week.  She suggests 4-6 hours at a minimum.  Marketing is, after all, the main resource for lead generation and – as Sharon says – if you don’t have leads, you don’t have a business.

Learn more about Sharon by visiting her website The Louisville Gals Real Estate Blog and subscribing to her podcast Let’s Talk Real Estate Investing Podcast.
