This is something that Guidant can help you with if you have retirement assets to use in the process. One option that may work for you would be to work with the business owner to set up short-term financing. That would allow the owners to start earning a little income to fund their retirement from the sale of the business, while also letting you gain experience running the business and perhaps building additional liquid savings.
Then, after a year owner-financing term, you may be able to put long-term financing in place with the owners or refinance using an SBA loan or another financing tool.

Detroit for example what would you do in my predicament? Is cash flow decreasing? If the entire areas future looks dim, maybe selling is an option. Thought I was the only one thinking big , want to buy rental properties at a specific period of time.
If The Lord tarry I will get there. Realtor and Financial advisor. I felt it was written by me: Word by word it matches exactly my view on RE investments, financing, the aggressive goal or units even the timeline when you started investing in RE and how many properties you currently own and also the dollar amount that you are making through these rentals.
I wonder a lot of people like us started out in that time frame when the world was falling apart. Its becoming extremely hard to find those kind of bargains and my only concern is staying focused and avoiding value traps in order to have a aggressive but sustainable growth.
I have seen way too many people who started out good and then let go off their principles in order to grow faster and did not realize how investment environment around them changed. On a constructive note, I see a lot of people who commented here are investors and therefor I would propose to create some sort of group where we can all discuss our experiences, resources and how the RE market is doing around the country.
Let me know if anyone interested. Hi RK, thank you! It is tougher for me to find deals as well. I can pay more because of rising values and rents, but I am still sticking to my guidelines.
I have the forum on the site, but it is not used much. I would love to get that going. I like your attitude and have no doubt you will reach your goal. My husband and I have had 52 rental units at a time but have owned many more. We had rentals for 25 years. Also, some pitfalls to avoid. Mark, I want to be very clear on this please. I have not used a portfolio lender as of yet. I understand their rules are different and this is the only way i could do this transaction.
Hard money purchase—Portfolio lender refi correct? Thanks again for you insights. I would talk to a new lender. From what the hard money lender told me he says he personally did this up to ten mortgages, after that he could not he refinanced with a traditional loan using Fannie Guidelines. My portfolio lender would not do this because they require seasoning of a year. A Fannie Mae refi does not. This is a pretty advanced strategy and I doubt your lender has ever heard of it.
A person might have to get a commercial blanket loan on the 10 properties and a higher interest rate then they could start financing rentals again once the 10 loans are paid off. They will just show as one commercial loan and conventional lenders are ok with that. Have you ever thought of investing out of state where you can get higher returns? I am having similar problems. I am exploring options with a commercial blanket loan on my personal rental portfolio 10 SFR.
I have 4 properties with mortgages, the rest are free and clear. Having 4 mortgages on investment properties prohibits me from purchasing All Cash and doing a full cash our refinance based on the new appraised value. I can of course, purchase up to 10 , 6 more with a min.
Neither one of these scenarios really helps in my market. The last 4 investment purchases went like this; 1. Purchased all cash 2. Clean up make rental market ready and acquire new tenants with lease. If I consolidate my portfolio with say 1st Key I will have 1 new loan at appox 5. This will open me up now on 4 more full cash out refinances, since my portfolio will now be out of my personal name or come up as a commercial.
The major problem is the market I am in. The upside is the value of my portfolio is very high, the down side is, I will continually need large amounts of money to make moves, and this is the problem I am having.. Mark, I am blown away with you home goal. I am very impressed and intrigued! I am feeling though, it will be very difficult if not impossible to achieve this type of goal in my market, without me making substantial income to keep purchasing or blindly investing in out of state where I know nothing..
I have TONS of equity! I have TONS of positive cash flow! But I am sort of stuck at the moment. They may be able to provide a blankey loan and free up much of that equity. Those taxes are crazy! I would also look into buying with hard money and then refinancing.
I have 2 great relationships with hard money lenders. Or will only be able to satisfy the existing hard money loan? I love these types of acquistions as I am purchasing well below market value, have the ablilty to rehab cheaply and quickly and although the taxes are high, the rent rolls are equally high. Hi LEO, Correct you could only refinance the current loan amount, nothing more.
Some hard money lenders will lend on repairs made as well as purchase price. I have never done this, but a hard money lender told me they do it all the time. Appriasal after purchase comes in at k. My jaw nearly fell to the floor when I read your article. I feel somewhat alone in my run to financial freedom.
My story is one made for Hollywood. Your plan is exactly to the frigging letter what my plan is. ONLY I take it to another level. Also, about thinking positive?! I am applying a strategy from the magic of thinking big book whereby I have a simple stylish enough of course bracelet that I put on my right wrist. The moment anything negative comes out of my mouth I must change it and put it on my right wrist.
I must continue this until I can go 21 straight days without uttering anything negative about anyone, anything, absolutely anything deemed a negative comment. I am moving mountains with my mind. My thinking is clear. I filter all the information I take in. I am more active I walk between 7 — 10 km daily. I am putting the final touches on my plan of action. There needs to be a plan of action in place — a sound one I might add.
But thank you infinitely for your words of wisdom — for such a young person. Thank you for the message Daniel! That is awesome you have made a transformation.
I will see news on the tv once in a while and I have to turn it off, because it is all so negative. Sounds like you are on an awesome path! I will mention that this property goal is not the end or my biggest goal it is only part of the big picture. I am constantly changing and adding new goals.
I am guessing you did not see the recent Facebook post, but this gives you an idea of what I have been up to. Would you share with me on how you started a management company. I would like to do the same. Where are you located? I have 9 people on my team and I used a couple that are not completely busy to start talking to tenants and renting homes. It worked good for me because they are already in the real estate field. You could always hire a Property manager as well.
Hey Mark, Chris from NC here. I came across your site as I am interested in real estate and I truly enjoy reading your posts. I commend you for showing people what you are doing and how you are actually doing it. It puts things into a manageable perspective and shows people how someone can do what they want if they put the work in and focus.
I too am a big believer in positive thinking and setting enormous goals. Your goal of owning rental properties is one of the major factors why I have subscribed as I want to see you succeed in achieving this monumental task. I have no doubt that you will succeed as it appears you have the right attitude and work ethic.
Les Brown once said they he believes that the reason most people fail in life is not that they aim too high and miss, but that they aim too low and hit. I firmly believe that and it appears with the size of your goal that you believe that as well.
Also thank you for the informational tidbits on real estate investing aside from your goal. I own 0 but today I made a goal to buy my first income property in 6 months. Going to learn as much as I can starting now! Im in Ontario Canada by the way. Good luck with your pursuit. I have acquired 19 properties in 28 years. Plus, equity in 9 real estate partnerships with apartments, strip malls, commercial property, storage lots and parking lots.
Have made many contacts leading to equity in equipment leasing, property management, vending machines, record storage, Christmas tree farm, dried food and plastic bag businesses. The best part, after years of trial and error and working hard and getting smart in the pursuit of building my little empire, I now have the freedom that plenty of cash flow provides.
Hey Mark, thanks for posting. I started off purchasing my home and have it paid for. A good elderly friend of mine bought a rental property in and found a great renter. Well, as time would have it, he passed and I purchased the home for 30k. I barely raised their rent after all these years. I figure a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush and besides, they never call me.
I have that home paid for from the tenants over the last 5 years. I own the house outright from the word go. One day I was visiting my mother when she told me of her neighbor selling their rental next door. I told her I was interested in it if I could buy it at a ridiculous price secondary to the age of the home and the fact that it was very small.
It is a one bedroom. He was asking 20k for it. I prayed about it and told God his will be done. The gentleman sold me the house for the offered price. I refinanced on my truck again. I think I still owed a bit on my last loan, somewhere in the 5k range.
I still owe about a yr. So, that is where I am. My question is direction. Still runs great though. I saw a set of 2 quad plexes in the bigger city near by and am wondering about purchasing them. Can I purchase as owner occupant if I live in one of the units? I imagine the interest rates would be better as well. What insights might you offer me in this situation?
That would land me at k. If the seller agreed to that amt. I guess it all depends on the owner occupancy thing. That alone would cover most of the note. My question is how to maximize my income by playing my hand the best way. My only debt is my truck. Thanks for any input you might give. Hi Stacy, thank you for the comment and details! Way to use your truck to buy houses! Have you asked the seller if he would consider any seller financing? Hi, because in my area single families cash flow better, have higher cap rates, I can get better deals on them and I can buy single families more quickly instead of having to build up my cash for a multifamily.
I wrote an article on it called single family versus multifamily. Hi Joe, The hardest part about getting started is saving for down payments.
Do they have owner occupant loans in the UK with lower down payments? It would be tough to buy houses without a high paying job and being able to save a lot of money. Mark, I would like to buy more as well, however my wife is not on board. I have two properties so far in a span of 9 years. I would love to have more, but need to sell my wife on it and figure out how to acquire them with no money down!
How do you manage insurance costs, property management? My team manages the properties right now and I have had to switch insurance companies. The Keller way of thinking will get you there faster!!!
Hi Joanne, was this comment directed to me or another commenter? I am Mark, but no worries. I have read both Keller books the millionaire investor and the millionaire agent. I have a couple of his other books on my list as well. I have never been with Keller Williams, but my wife was when I met her. There are actually no Keller Williams near by me. The one in Greeley closed a couple of years ago and the Loveland and Fort Collins offices were bought out be Coldwell Banker.
Wow thats an aggressive goal. I have a goal of 4 SFH properties and 1 aprtmant building. Thank you, I started with smaller goals and they kept getting bigger as I accomplished the smaller ones. My issue is dealing with the day to day problems of owning rentals. I am looking at using a property management Company. What are your thoughts in these companies? I know that their fees will reduce cash flow and slow the multiplier effect. I would like to turn real estate to a full time job, but for now I still need to work.
Thank you for you detailed plan. I would like to own rentals as a goal, but would like two have a mixed portfolio of residential and business properties. Sounds like you have a great plan. I started a property management company myself. Once you get to a certain amount of properties it starts to take a lot of time to manage them all. Have you seen my article on finding a property manager? Can you help me find a portfolio lender in Philadelphia?
I have 6 properties so far, and planning to buy my 7th. Because of my relationship with their officer, he would good enough to suggest that a portfolio lender would be my best source. Hi Dan, have you seen this article? It includes my tips for finding a portfolio lender https: How would you manage rental??
Hey Mark Can you give me an advice for creative real estate finance? Hi dan, Yes Ben Leybovich has a program on creative finance. Hi Andy, I just purchased number 8! Great article but a few questions…where and how do you decide to spread your risk. That would be very risky if the economy tanked or jobs moved elsewhere and your rents went down.
For now I am investing close to where I am because I can manage them and I know the market and can buy them below market. I want properties that cash flow great. I look for high rent to purchase ratios in middle of the road price range. You gave up on the garbage can too soon.
It takes 2 weeks to learn a new habit. It might help you with other more important habits, like quitting smoking or losing weight, or thinking positively! Thank you for the advice. I do agree it takes time to create a new habbit and train your brain. Hey Mark, I find your drive and approach invigorating. My personal story… in early the market here in West Michigan was in the dump and I decided to buy a couple rental properties. In the 3 years that followed I have added a total of 77 rental properties.
They are all single family homes. Truth be told I only have 76 because I lost one in a fire 3. Needless to say man this is not a quest for the weary. Shoot man in year I purchased and refurbed 28 properties alone, meaning I was having to go to a closing at least every 2 weeks that year. My average monthly rent is per month. I am in cash and have no loans on any of these properties.
The crazy thing Mark is that the deals are vanishing and I am finding it hard to stop. Another thing I will mention is that I am not even to this day convinced I did the right thing going all in on these houses. Sure I would like to get more — that part of me is real. The other aspect of it though is the repairs and headaches and extreme long term costs of holding all these single family homes. Shoot man in the next 15 years I better be ready to drop k on roof replacement alone.
I have no idea how you expect to get the returns you are mentioning and what kind of long term expense ratios you are counting on.
I own them all in cash so I still do alright, but still these costs are staggering and real. What I have always tried to do is buy homes where the purchase price is not greater than 5 times annual rent… this is tough to do but really seals the deal on it being a safe long term investment.
Anyways, I commend you on your quest. Thank you for the comment Ryan! That is impressive to have bought all of those properties so quickly. I agree it can be overwhelming dealing with maintenance and expenses, that is why I like to buy newer homes if possible and stay away from homes over 40 years old for the most part. I also buy middle of the road single family homes, I think they tend to have less maintenance, turnover and repairs than the lower end rentals.
One thing I know helps my expense ratio is taxes are very low here, we pay about. If you average out all of those roofs over 15 years, it really is not that expensive. I do make a higher percentage return on my money having it leveraged over cash since I have less cash into each property. Thank you again for the comments and it will be interesting to see what the next 15 years are like for sure!
I am in the process of starting a property management company right now which will reduce the work greatly. I get much higher returns on the SFRs now then I can commercial in my area. Ryan, if you have them all paid you should not worry about k in repairs.. I dont know many people making that much money.. Jim Posey has the right idea.
My first ten rentals took about 30 years thanks to two down markets and a divorce. My second ten took ten years. I am hoping my next ten take about five years. As you get more, they come quicker by using tax free exchanges, leverage and cash flow. Thanks for posting this!
