CREPN #174 Cash Flow is Key with Daniel Ameduri

J. Darrin Gross Podcast, Real Estate

Cash flow from day one is the key to building generational wealth that provides you options regardless of market conditions.

Daniel Ameduri from Future Money Trends has been investing in real estate since he was 18 years old.  In a short time, he went from investing in properties that cash flowed to properties he hoped would appreciate in value.

When the market crashed, he lost those properties he was betting on for appreciation.  The properties that cash flowed from day one, continued to produce and increased their output while the market was falling.  

The lesson was learned.  Invest for cash flow and you will be free!

Cash Flow versus Saving

An asset that produces regular recurring cash flow is the goal for any investor looking for a way out of the need for a job.  A very simple plan, free from the hocus pocus of the stock market is real estate. For a modest down payment, you can purchase with leverage, a rental property.  The tenant pays the rent, the rent pays the mortgage. When the mortgage is paid off, you get all the rent.

Compare this to saving cash, and earning minimal if any interest in the bank.  You are way better off to invest in a tried and proven asset class like real estate.

Investing strategies for Cash Flow

Paid off real estate can be a tremendous base for your retirement future.   Simple Retirement plan: purchase multiple single family rental properties. Pay them off.  Cash flow for life. The key with real estate is time. So, the quicker you acquire, the sooner you will be free.  

Financing.  Unless you have an unlimited money supply, you will have to borrow to grow your real estate portfolio.  If you have strong credit, and a good W-2 job, you can qualify for conventional financing.

However, if you have lesser credit and financial qualifications, you will have to get creative.  

Seller Financing:  Look for property and a seller with a problem.  A property with a problem will not qualify for conventional financing.  The seller’s problem is an opportunity for you to negotiate a low price, and determine what the actual cost to repair the problem will cost.  A seller with a problem is more likely to agree to seller financing.

If they do not own the property out right, consider assuming their mortgage.  All conventional mortgages have a due on sale clause. However, Daniel has never heard of a performing mortgage be called by the lender.  So, this is your chance to take over an existing mortgage. Find out what the seller needs to allow them to move on. Most of the time, it is relatively little. 

For a few thousand dollars, you can own a property that has a mortgage, and you get the equity the seller has paid down.  

If you don’t want to keep the property, you can sell it.  You can offer to carry a mortgage. When the original sellers mortgage is still in place, you create a “Wrap Around Mortgage”.  

This is when your sell the property for more than you purchased it for.  The new buyer gives you a down payment. You collect their payment, and make the payment on the original mortgage you assumed.  The difference between what you collect and the cost to service the first mortgage is yours to keep.
