Not All Real Estate Is Created Equal – Cardone Zone

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Stress test for buying real estate:
1. Does it provide cash flow with at least 4-8% a year (if it provides more than 8% you need to look with some magnifying glass cause there is probably something wrong!)
2. Time/money – is this going to be worth your time?
3. Do you love it?
4. Can you exit? Can sell the deal at any time?

If a deal makes 28% but that’s only $100 that’s not a good deal.
How many doors/units/tenants you have is the most important number in real estate.

Classes of properties:
A – (could be triple A) new or 1-3 years old
B – 3-20 years old caters to mix of white and blue collar, overall nice mix of cashflow and appreciation, returns of 5-7% before appreciation
C – 20 + years old
D – Inner city, tough markets

At Cardone Capital, we look at 100 deals to buy 1-3 deals

Grant – do you take investors with a smaller amount to start? I am 48, getting ready to sell my home so will have some cash on hand to invest. I am a single mom with my own business but desperately need to find other streams of passive income – just in case. I've always been interested in investing in real estate, just found you and am listening while I work! God bless 🙂

Tom Psillas says:

Grant makes good points.  You have to dig through all the junk to get to the gems.  1% to 3% means a lot of work goes into buying 1 property.  Most people give up when they analyze 3 properties that don't cash flow.  Try looking at 30 to 100 properties to get one that you can acquire.  It shows you the effort required.  It helps to have a dream team to help you, but you cannot afford that until you get 2-3 deals under your belt.  Now, get to work

Do you accept investors from other countries to your new fund? I think only people living in the US and Canada can become accredited investors? But because the new deal doesn't require investors to be accredited, does that also mean you can take investors from all around the world? Does cross-continental investments have some extra fees?
