INVESTTHIS EP 76: Generating Cash Flow with Note Investing

Any investor who wants to earn monthly cash flow can do so by purchasing cash flowing notes without having to deal with toilets, trash, termites, and tenants. -Dave Franecki

I did a show a couple of weeks ago that covered note investing, and the feedback was phenomenal. That’s when I decided to do a deep dive, with a 30+ year investing veteran, and Note Investor of the Year award recipient, Dave Franecki.

Dave’s range of experiences includes almost every facet of the real estate industry, including REO, Flip/Fix, and loan officer. Because of his expertise, he is a sought-after speaker, author, sales trainer, Sr. Note Buyer at Capstone Capital and President of the Note Investor’s Forum Meet-up. Dave has won many awards, one most recent being Note Investor of the Year in 2018.

On today’s show, we deep dive on note investing, which includes how to use your 401K, how to analyze the equity, and why performing notes are the way to go. We also discussed some other interesting topics. Everyone is talking about a potential turn in the market, and Dave provides a fascinating insight on how to predict a downturn. Additionally, we discuss steps to take to protect yourself in a down market and still have cash flowing in.

Deciding to take the leap, she and her husband Danny began flipping as a side hustle. With lots of self-education, a mentor and some successes under their belt, they went into flipping full-time.

Melissa shares how she has built her teams and some valuable lessons she has learned along the way. Additionally, she tells an interesting story about how they made it through the downturn in 2006, which is applicable for today as the fed just cut rates for the first time since 2008!
