As Frank Sinatra mused “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere” holds true for New York real estate investing. It’s a different animal, and my guest, Joe Cordes provides a generous amount of advice on how to navigate this irregular market.

On today’s episode, Joe provides an in-depth look at the New York market and how to find your competitive edge. He discusses the pitfalls of investing in an attorney state, as well as dealing with permits, which could be a full-time job. Also, Joe advises on wholesaling and the problems with multifamily investing. Because he knows the market so well, he has a unique take on where it is going in the next five years.

#INVESTTHIS EP 54: The Advantages of Syndication Investing as a Limited Partner

Syndication investing as a limited partner is kind of like jumping out of an airplane in tandem with someone. You have to trust in their expertise. -Scott Bower

I have asked Holly Williams to join us again on the show, to talk more about working with syndicators as a limited partner.

#INVESTTHIS EP 52: Innovations in Digital Marketing Lead Generation

In a recent Forbes article, it was stated “Nearly every investor has experienced the frustration of dealing with third-party/online leads.

Greg Bilbro is the Co-Founder of GeoFlip. He and his partner have built a proven model that includes everything a real estate investor needs for their online marketing to be successful. Greg started his career as a stockbroker and was the youngest person to make Partner at New York Life.

With nearly 15 years of experience in real estate investing, he has expertise in many facets of real estate investing. These include fix and flip, wholesale, retail, financing, and creatively structured deals.

Every time I talk with Greg, I’m inspired, and today’s show is no different. We discuss the importance of making decisions based on data and not your gut. Greg provides actionable insights on how to make digital marketing work for better deals. Most noteworthy, he goes into detail on how to get the attention of motivated sellers. And his innovations that make PPC work for a better ROI are incredible.  Because Greg is a hard-working visionary, he explains the further decline of direct mail and how to ramp-up other options before it’s no longer useful. Something that truly caught my attention is GeoFlips innovative Golden Ratio technique. This system is providing his clients with amazing close rates.
