On today's episode, we have Stessa power user, Roberta Dalla Verde, who is going to talk about her portfolio in Brazil as well as in Atlanta. Alright, let's get into it.   Roberta, thank you so much for joining me.   Roberta: Oh, thank you so much for having me here.   Tom: To start us out. I have a fun question to ask you. So what has been the best day since becoming a real estate investor? This can be kind of any sort of investor related activities or what has been one of the best days you've had.   Roberta: I think there's so many different in so many days, we had the good days. With a best day, I think let's say for example, our first when we bought our first property that was like, Wow, there was something we were not revealing expect. And then we were able to buy it for like, Oh my gosh, this is it. And but I think as far as the investment, once we started getting really into the business of investing, when we realized actually, one day, we had hired the CPA. And we had a few properties already. And we hired the CPA, and he's like, okay, now let me explain a little bit of all the good things that you may end up with, because you're investing in real estate for like, Oh, no, really, when we so that was the aha moment like for us are like, Oh my gosh, this can be into like, our lives can change. And this actually a business.   So for us, that was the most I think me that I think of it, it's the most important day for us any change in our lives from there to now. So definitely, that was the…   Tom: I love it when you, you know, you decide to do something for all these good reasons. And then once you're kind of moving along, you realize there's more good reasons to do it. There's something that that's great.   Roberta: Yeah, I remember he said, like the real estate was like, a multi dimensional asset class, you're like, well, what is that I started looking into it was like, wow, that's Yeah, so what is that?   Tom: So what initially pointed you towards real estate? What was your background? Before getting in? I'd love to hear about that.   Roberta: So I was born and raised in Brazil. We've been here in the US. So my husband and I have been hearing us since 2005. And one day, like we were saving and we bought a house. And then we lived there for a few years. And then we we bought this property. We're where we live now. This was back in 2015 and 2015. Yeah. And we decided to keep the previous house and we turn it into a long term rental. So just we thought as an another stream of cash, you know, we didn't have the big picture of investment. So we were like, okay, let's keep it we were able to keep it and invest in another property like you buy the new one. So let's do it.   So there, that's when it started. We we started managing that property. We didn't know anything about it was completely new to us. And coming from a different background. We're like, okay, there's even the buying process was different, like all sorts of different things we had to learn and by ourselves. So I had to study a lot.   I'm an attorney. I practice I even have, I went to graduate school here in US, but I don't practice anymore. So since then I've been focused more only real estate and then as our portfolio grew. We just you know, I was more involved with that. So in 2015, we started it took us maybe like two years by our second rental, and then from there. It's just, it started evolving. And I'm a busy mom. So it's like okay, real estate. Really, it's good for my type of routine. It gets into I can fit it in To my schedule. So it helps me with that, like, I can have both worlds, you know, I can be with my kids, but two, I can work for ourselves, which is something very important for us. So. So that's really a very important part of my day I deal with real estate. So it's on a daily basis that.   Tom: That's great. The The, the flexibility it affords, you know, a couple of things I want to pick out in that in that awesome story. So was the intention always when you bought that first house to eventually just to keep it and leave it as a rental?   Roberta: Yes, it was. But it was just as a rental because we at that time, we were like, Oh, we heard somebody say, you know, that's things like it's far away from us. Somebody kept their housing is getting good money, because we live in an area where real estate is hard, and like the rentals are good. So appreciation is good, everything's good. So we didn't have that idea. But we're like, Okay, this is a good cash flow for us an extra thing. And we can keep it in. Really, house was fairly new. So we didn't have a lot of maintenance. So we could, we just decided to keep it but we didn't have in mind growing, we didn't have the growth of a portfolio in mind. At that time. We were we probably would stay with only one at that time. Like we were not looking into buying others.   Tom: Yeah. So that's a great transition into growing so kind of roughly what does your portfolio consist of today?   Roberta: So we have properties that are single family homes, we have townhomes and condos. And we have both here in the US in the state of Georgia, and in Brazil. So we have properties there as well. Most of our properties are long term rentals. And we have a few short term rentals in Brazil here in US only long term. And we decided to stay in Georgia. Because first we know the market very well. And besides that, we don't think that right now it's the time to go broaden our, you know, our places just because we still have a lot of opportunities here, and very good opportunities. So there is no need for us now to go to different states. The places we know very well, Georgia, and it's mainly north of Atlanta, where we invest on but we've been pretty familiar with the area we we know the area pretty well. So we're completely comfortable with this range here. Close by.   Tom: Is that like Alpharetta and like smearing or like further up north?   Roberta: Yeah. Alpharetta as well. A little bit. North of right down like, even Forsyth County. How can you besides Boulton County, we have all like north of Atlanta, all the way. I don't know how many miles 60 miles up seven miles. Do you know the area?   Tom: I do? I like Atlanta a lot. I invested. That's my my most of my portfolio is in Atlanta as well. That areas is wonderful.   Roberta: Yeah. Yeah, the return in there, it's pretty good. Like, people come to us and give us no shows, opportunities like they notice here too. So we've got to be known in the area in. So it's easy for us to invest here. And you know, it doesn't take much to like Express, we know where to go and how to see if it's a good deal or not.   Tom: That's That's fantastic. And I'd love to just you know, not go too deep on it, but investing in Brazil as well. So did you use first invest in United States before you built out some short term rentals in Brazil?   Roberta: Yes, we started here in us and then in Brazil, it was actually because we had an uncle that passed away left me some money there. And I was like, Okay, so what are we going to do? And to bring it here because of the exchange rate was kind of not a wise decision. So we started looking into opportunities there. And at the time, the market was very low for the receipt was very cheap. And since we started, so it's been a few years and we start growing the portfolio because Then the the market was slow, and then it started picking up. And now the return is very good. So we are happy with the properties that we have there. We have management companies that help us there as well. So it's it's easy to, even though you're miles and miles away, it's very easy to manage, we got to a point where Stessa helps us   Tom: Great transition!   Roberta: with our even with our portfolio being abroad, we're still able to plug in the information we get from them into Stessa, which is a great benefit.   Tom: Yeah, excellent transition. So you for throughout the properties you own in the world. stessa is able to aggregate you use that to aggregate all of them.   Roberta: Yeah, it's definitely helping us with that as well.   Tom: How did you first discover Stessa and like what are the you know, the main problems that it solves for you?   Roberta: So here it is. First, let me give you a background a little bit. In the beginning, we had this booklet that our the accountant that we're filing taxes with gave us to track the expenses for our initial for our first rental. So it was this booklet where we would write down all the expenses. And then we moved into like, okay, let's get this Excel spreadsheet, and that but all of the expenses. Well, after a while, it was a little bit hectic, to keep up expenses, and to track it there was very hard. And then we started looking into options online, we're like, okay, let's see, there must be something to help us here. And then we found a few, then you will have to pay for many others that we there were not adjusted for real estate, you know, like they were not built for real estate. The apps are like, okay, you can kinda use it. But not it was not designed for real estate.   So, you know, there were like, no, this is not ideal, either. And then there's some that were made for real estate, but they would charge us and we're like, No, we don't want to go with, you know, we don't want to pay for that service. And we found Stessa We're like, Okay, well, this is great. It has been like we've been able to use it since we first started with being great plugging all the information and give us such good information. Like we can see everything. They're right there. Like we can keep track of expenses and our income, all the different documents, were able to put it there like to upload, we have since appraisals, deeds, lease agreements, and inspection reports, like all sorts of different things. They're really all these make my my life much easier, because I can go to one specific place, and, and have all there.   We use other apps as well, we use apartments.com, and that helped us and also poa.rentals helps us with the job as best as always can be quite grueling. sure to keep track of all the fines you have to pay or things like that. And also we use a Z Inspector with inspections because we we perform like inspections on our tenants. And for those that are not with management companies, you know, we go inspect their properties must know. Yeah, so all these apps, they make my life  much easier.   But this Stessa, for sure is the one that I use the most because it's like on a daily basis. In the morning, I sit on my desk and I write on stats are looking at all the transaction and the dashboard, all the colors and everything.   Tom: So it's it's probably helps, you know, hard to use some of the other apps in for the properties that you have in in Brazil. I'm curious about kind of your operations, you guys use third party property management or you do the management on your own, or I'd love to learn about that.   Roberta: So there are some properties. We have two management companies here in US that offers and a few properties are managed by ourselves so we may I manage them. dependents come directly to us on a few of the properties because we like to have that taste as well. We want to keep track of what the management companies we kind of we like to compare And keep track of what you're doing the best or not and ways to improve. So we like to manage some ourselves, just to make sure we, you know, we, we know the business from all points, like from the beginning to so and that also we have management companies in Brazil that help us with the color the properties there.   So, there's quite a few management things, you know, to keep track of all the reconciliation status helped me a lot, because I do financial reconciliation with all the property management inputs, like, every time I get there, denote the income from there every month, and I do a reconciliation. Stessa is my source for doing that. Otherwise, I would go crazy, just looking at my bank account. So this helps me a lot.   Tom: I'm curious. Let's say I had the the person in charge of building out new things and Stessa. What would you request as a new feature or new functionality? If you have if you had to have one?   Roberta: It really, nowadays, it's helping me the way it is now. Because without the documents, I have all that spread out.   Tom: I love the document storage.   Roberta: Yeah, yeah. So that that is easy. on a day to day, I keep track of my expenses and my income. And I keep track of my mortgage, all the mortgages that I have, and the balances the insurance. So it's really helping me a whole lot. I don't know, I would say sometimes, I don't even know if there is something like somebody could think of but for example, the banks, duplicate entries. And then for the reconciliation part, sometimes the banks duplicate and then Stessa. But it's so hard. I don't even know, I can't think of a way for Stessa to get this in a better way. Because it reads directly from the banks thing. I don't know. Maybe I will. I will add to that. I have to think about it.   Tom: Yeah, we Yeah, we Yeah, very much care. I care a lot about what the what our what our customers want. And so yeah, love, love that continuing to kind of think through ways to kind of get to the next level. So my last question for you. So looking back, what's one thing you wish that you had known before getting started?   Reberta: I wish I wouldn't have started much earlier back in when I first came, I would say the first game here. Because we had no clue. We had no guidance. So I wish I had a mentor that would have shown me where to go, which apps to look at what to track what to look for, even as far as investment. We don't we didn't know what would be a good investment to know we had to learn having our own today nowadays, we have our own range, I would say you know, of return. We have a good robust calculator for our return. But before back in the day, I wish I had somebody that would have got a you know, guided me and to make me an investor like much earlier in the my life to have to have started this much earlier. But yeah, it is what it is.   Tom: Yeah, exactly.   Roberta: If I can help somebody now. I would definitely, you know, as we do, like we try to help as many people as we know, because it's all in the end. It's all lack of information, lack con, people don't know. And if they didn't know they would be doing wiser decisions and investment is   Tom: Yeah raise everybody up. I love it. Well, Roberta, thank you so much for joining us.   Roberta: Thank you so much, Tom. I appreciate it.   Tom: Thank you so much to Roberta for joining today. It's super interesting learning about her portfolio in Brazil and how she uses Stessa. And as always, happy investing

Bringing on a partner to handle the backend of the business or manage finances is helpful, but won't lift the weight of the sales - essentially, the health of the business will still be on YOU.In this podcast episode, Macy and Kat sit down with 2 GUIDE Culture graduates and business partners, Dylan Murphy and Meredith Renshaw of Free Method Nutrition, to talk about this very thing.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Monday 30th August. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. GM CHEVY BOLT EV BATTERY FIX COULD BRING MORE RANGE - Owners of 2017-2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV models have had to contend with a reduced driving range for many months, as GM attempted to find a remedy for a battery related fire issue that culminated with a plan to replace all battery modules. - Now GM has confirmed that it's stepping up by offering a significant range boost for those earlier Bolt EVs.  In a communication to some owners sent over the weekend—spotted by friends of Green Car Reports—the automaker emphasized that the all-new lithium-ion battery modules installed in older Bolt EVs will offer “GM's most advanced Bolt chemistry.” - Their pending 8-percent boost in battery capacity is described as “resulting in a range improvement in equivalent driving conditions,” and includes a new 8-year/100,000-mile limited parts warranty covering the battery after the module replacement. - Think of it this way: It's not unusual to see 10 percent battery degradation after a few years of EV ownership. Now for the inconvenience, any range drop will be erased, and they'll likely be getting more range than the cars did when new. For a company that's depending on the reputation of its upcoming Ultium EVs for a decade of growth, that sounds like a smart move.

At the Chengdu Motor Show, the firm showed off an 82.5KWh capacity power pack inside a vehicle from Chinese automaker Great Wall Motors. Under normal temperatures, SVOLT says its battery can deliver approximately 373 miles of range on a single charge and allow a car to accelerate from zero to 60 miles per hour in under five seconds. Original Source : https://www.engadget.com/svolt-colbalt-free-battery-scale-production-234534595.html SVOLT UNVEILS COBALT-FREE BATTERY, CLAIMING FIRST COMPANY TO REACH 'SERIES PRODUCTION' - The company currently employs nearly 3,000 people worldwide, half of whom work in research and development (R&D). In fact, SVOLT has shared that over the past several years, it has dedicated 1,200 R&D personnel to cobalt-free batteries alone. - According to a press release from SVOLT, the manufacturer unveiled what it calls “the world's first cobalt-free battery pack to reach series production.” - However, while SVOLT should be recognized for bringing its EV pack to production, it's tough to justify its claim as the first. For example, Tesla removed cobalt from its lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries last year for the Standard Range Model 3 in China alongside CATL. Panasonic was also developing similar techniques alongside Tesla earlier this year.

No one was seriously injured in the crash, though the Tesla did narrowly miss hitting a state trooper as he left his car to assist another driver who had broken down on the highway. - "The driver stated that [the Tesla] was in Autopilot mode," said the report from the Florida Highway Patrol. Original Source : https://edition.cnn.com/2021/08/30/business/tesla-crash-police-car/index.html THE PLYBERTRUCK IS A TESLA CYBERTRUCK REPLICA MADE WITH WOODEN PANELS - since its unveiling in 2019, the tesla cybertruck has racked up a lot of interest with creatives around the world continuously dreaming up new iterations of the vehicle. with production pushed to 2022, the longing to have one has increased significantly among fans, inciting them to create their own version of the long-awaited truck. such is the case of the plybertruck, a cybertruck replica that ditches the car's stainless steel body and replaces it with wood. - the plybertruck by CJ cromwell was created to participate in the gambler 500 rally - under the plybertruck's wooden body there's a first-generation acura MDX, as reported by carscoops. ‘so while it's obviously not electric like the real cybertruck, we have no doubt that it met the $500 purchase cost cap,' Original Source : https://www.designboom.com/technology/plybertruck-cybertruck-wooden-panels-08-30-2021/ BIPARTISAN TEXAS LAW SMOOTHS THE PATH TOWARD A MORE VIBRANT EV MARKET - On September 1, a bill that helps businesses build a better, brighter future for electric vehicles in Texas will become state law. - SB 1202, makes it possible for companies or individuals that own or operate equipment used solely for electric vehicle charging services to avoid being regulated as electric utilities or electric retail providers. - Electric vehicle charging stations are different. EV owners are not reliant on any particular stand-alone charging station; they use any given charging station and have no further relationship with it after they depart. Any regulatory framework for charging stations should be tailored to what Texas regulators and drivers want from the nascent charging marketplace. - The new law will help ease Texas EV owners' worries about long distance travel — one of the most common barriers to EV ownership. Without the possibility of utility-style regulation, EV charging companies can now develop charging stations more quickly and extensively.

This way, a vehicle can obtain information about its surroundings and feed the driver with warnings to slow down if, for example, they entered a school zone. - Audi worked with Qualcomm, a wireless technology company, and Commsignia, a software systems provider, to test C-V2X tech in a 2021 Audi e-tron Sportback.

VW Group's strategy to bring down the cost of electric vehicles involves developing common platforms to underpin models across its many brands to conserve costs. - Since these architectures will be used all over the world, "the potential to put an Audi car, production-wise, into the U.S. is even higher than now," Duesmann said Friday on Bloomberg Television. "The likelihood of us producing in the U.S. is there." - Last month, CEO Herbert Diess told Bloomberg TV that the company will decide this quarter on building more electric models in the country.

Owner of Music Authority, Melissa Loggins joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum podcast to discuss its various music programs and services along with how Music Authority navigated the Coronavirus pandemic. Loggins joins hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the Around Atlanta segment and chats about everything from rock bands to instrument rentals and performances Loggins always knew from a young age that she loved performing arts. As a child, she was a ballerina and had a dream of opening a performing arts school one day. During her time in college, she earned a degree in Music Business. By the age of 25, she owned a music store, achieving her dream and becoming one of the rare people using their degree in the Music Business. Music Authority's in-house repair shop is a full-line repair shop for school band and combo instruments that focuses on keeping the instruments in good working order. The store educates its customers to ensure they understand that their instruments should be serviced every six to eight months. Music Authority provides rentals and lessons on school band equipment, but the main focus is lessons and rentals for combo instruments such as guitars, amplifiers and drum sets. The store focuses on contemporary music and has a strong rock band program that will officially have eight rock bands this Fall. “Most schools have a lessons program, and they have a school band so we're not going to reinvent the wheel and do what schools are already doing well,” mentioned Loggins. “We focus on those students who are getting missed because they play guitar and there isn't a rock band they can join.” The rock band program at Music Authority has three phases. The middle phase is a five-month program aimed at middle schoolers that does not require an audition. All that is needed is a little background information on your chosen instrument. During those five months, students perform two to three productions: two at an in-house venue, The Back Room, and one at an outside venue such as a parking lot concert. Music Authority has been doing Rock Camp since 2003 and the rock band program for five years. Loggins has students who are featured on the radio and she has worked with artists who are now very successful in the music industry. She even has students finding success in the European music scene. The showcase band program is a varsity-level program that requires an audition to join. The program's groups perform at least once a month at venues like RockSolid Brewery in Ball Ground and Joe's Sports Bar in Alpharetta. Guest appearances at the Halcyon Kid's Club, allow toddlers to try out instruments. This program is designed for high schoolers, and some are given the opportunity to travel with Loggins to Nashville, Tennessee to experience the music industry. The newest program offered is an elementary school program giving young children an opportunity to experience and try out music at an earlier age. Music Authority is located in Forsyth County, a county with a fantastic arts program that is currently building a new arts complex for its arts program to utilize. “What we focus on is the kids that aren't getting (needs) met within the school systems because you can't go to the school system and sign up for a rock band. That's something very specific that we do,” said Loggins. “I don't want to compete against my school system. We support them.” Through partnerships with schools Music Authority often supports music programs through sponsorships.  And last year during the pandemic, Music Authority helped raise money to help the elementary school program purchase ukuleles. Twenty percent of the students are adults, and last summer, Music Authority had an adult rock program. Loggins encourages adults to get involved as it's a great way to relieve stress and find a creative outlet. Recently there were enough adult students in the program to make up two bands. Eventually,

Its 18 sales offices throughout Georgia offer a variety of departments including international specialists, a relocation division, marketing, public relations, mortgage services, home insurance services and title services, among many others. “My mother's been a Realtor with Harry Norman for almost 30 years, so I've grown up in the office and I've watched the firm expand over the years,” Louise said. “I'm always amazed at how innovative and ahead of the curve Harry Norman is. It's a fun and exciting place to be, especially right now.” In the current market, the Realtors have experienced a hectic environment unlike anything they've seen before. With the combined factors of COVID-19 (coronavirus), low interest rates and scarce inventory supply, the housing market has been highly unpredictable. As a result, Realtors have experienced both benefits and drawbacks while navigating the explosive market. Although the Atlanta housing industry is known for its competitive nature, present conditions have caused a great upsurge in buyers vying for property, which has highlighted the necessity of preparation before entering the market. To adapt to current circumstances, Louise advises clients to be fully prepared and proactive before searching for a new home. To thoroughly plan ahead, she suggests buyers find the right Realtor to guide them through the buying process, as well as a mortgage consultant to help them arrange finances, get preapproved and receive answers to all their questions. Louise also emphasized the importance of maintaining great communication, even over-communication, between Realtors and clients for the best chances of success. LaMonte focuses on the value of holding conversations on the phone to ensure both parties have mutual understanding. Both Realtors and clients often defer to the use of email or text messages when communicating with each other, but this can often lead to clarity issues and misunderstanding. Instead, LaMonte suggests planning phone calls to stay updated and address any unanswered questions. Louise also highlights the opportunity phone calls provide to build rapport and solid relationships between agents and their clients. Although Atlanta has been the place to work and live for many, Realtors are seeing a shift from prioritizing home location to home amenities. More clients are opting to live outside of the city to instead build their lives around their homes. When the coronavirus emerged, Louise saw a rise in demand for single-family homes with outdoor living spaces. As more individuals began working remotely, having sufficient space has become increasingly important as they spend more time within the home. To find homes with more space at affordable prices, Louise began to shift outside the center of Atlanta to surrounding areas including Roswell, Alpharetta and Vinings where properties with outdoor living space were more abundant. “When I first started, a lot of people wanted to be within the city close to work, close to where they live their lives,” LaMonte said. “Recently, we've seen many people going to the suburbs, the lake and secondary homes on the beach.   “You're building the life around you at the house,

As remote real estate investors, choosing a new market can be quite the process. Today we run the thought experiment on how we would spend our time if we only had 24 hours in a potential new market to research, analyze and assess the city. --- Transcript   Before we jump into the episode, here's a quick disclaimer about our content. The remote real estate investor podcast is for informational purposes only, and is not intended as investment advice.

Make sure to always run your own numbers, make your own independent decisions and seek investment advice from licensed professionals.   Tom: Greetings, and welcome to the remote real estate investor. On this episode, we're going to be talking about not being a remote investor temporarily and visiting the city. So the premise of this episode is going to be you have 24 hours to spend in a city that you're considering investing. What are you going to do? All right, let's do it.   Alright, so we have a fun episode today. But before we get into it, my name is Tom Schneider. And I am joined by   Emil: Emil Shour   Michael: and Michael Albaum.   Tom: This episode is a fun episode. We are remote real estate investors. But we're going to take a look, sometimes it's you know, worth the exercise to check out a market that you're evaluating. And we're going to talk about how we would spend that time if we were choosing to go jump into a market and look at things.   So we have 24 hours is the rule of this episode. And we're going to talk about how we would spend that. So let's see what Emil, why don't you go ahead and lead us off in this conversation. And again, this is 24 hours to go visit a market. What are you going to do?   Emil: Alright, so first thing I'm doing is meeting with the various people of my team, primarily property manager. So I think the premise here, Tom is I have not invested in this city before, right? So I'm a new investor, considering the city and I'm going to check it out, right? Or have I already invested here.   Tom: That's right.   Emil: And now I'm going to visit it,   Tom: I'm dealer's choice for your case, we're going to have it so you are already invested. And for Michael, he is evaluating investing. So we're going to mix it up a little bit, and I gotta be omnipotent, and get to just kind of jump in and out wherever I want. So, okay.   Emil: All right.   Michael: Like it throws zingers in there.   Tom: Exactly, yes.   Emil: All right. So I actually had plans to go visit. So I've mentioned before I invest in St. Louis, I was planning on going to visit St. Louis, and then COVID hit and that's filled all those plans still on my to do list. But here's kind of my checklist of things to do when I go there. So I have a property manager that I like out there. But I would go and obviously meet face to face with my property manager always good to do you know, so far, it's only been talking on the phone and on zoom or whatever. But I want to get to know them meet the people on their team just put a face behind all the names. So that's, that's one of the things I'm doing.   I would also honestly, probably meet with one or two other property managers just to meet them. You know, we've talked about in the past, you know,   Tom: You sneaky dog Emil!   Emil: I just I know, I know, time and I'm just kidding. That's that is smart to do. Here's the thing, I'm not there all  the time. And we've talked about in the past, things happen with property managers, sometimes things work out, sometimes they don't, I'd rather be over prepared. I'm not going to switch obviously, because I like my property manager. It's not about that. It's a matter of just going and doing some extra research and talking to people in case that scenario plays out in the future. So I'm gonna go talk to maybe one or two other property managers that were on my list. That's fallbacks. Just another thing I'm going to do…   Tom: Give them your buy box to you know, tentacles everywhere.   Emil: Totally, totally underrated strategy to find properties is talking to PMs, and they bring you deals.   I would also the other thing, I would do it well, since I invest there, I'm obviously going to go check out the neighborhood that I invest in, I'm literally just going to rent a car and just drive around streets a street and I'm I'm gonna have a notepad with me, I'm gonna write down, what are the streets that are experiencing a lot of people improving the properties or the properties that are already improved. And maybe there's maybe there's some dilapidated homes, they're right, where you could potentially buy the worst property on a nice looking block. And then I'm also going to just know down like, what streets were just bad, right? Like, you know, there's some cities you invest in where they say it's very block block, note down those blocks that you want to avoid within those sub markets that you like. So that's another thing I'm doing.   Michael: Emil, I'm curious, are you going with your agent or with your property manager literally just sneaking up and down every street in a particular area that that you're invested in?   Emil: I'm probably going by myself, if I can get them to come along with me. I would love that. But I doubt that they have six hours out of their day or whatever it may be that I'm just cruising around to like, do this kind of research. So I'm planning on it being solo, I'd love for them to come. But I just don't know if that's realistic, you know,   Tom: It's funny, there's like benefits on both sides to it, you know, like, you're just by yourself, like, you don't feel like you need to keep moving along to whatever you can kind of double click into whatever you want. But with an agent or with your PM, it's like, you know, little more insight.   Michael: I want to echo that point, because I've done both it, it's so often like you with an agent. And if you know that, well, then it's kind of easy. Maybe you're friends with them. And you can just kind of have a very flowy conversation. But I know just like in my own head, sometimes I'll be driving and I want to see something. And that's where my focus is. And in my head, I'd be like, shut up, shut up, shut up, like, I got to focus on this thing. So if there's somebody else in the car with you, or somebody else there with you, I don't want to feel like I always have to be talking, I just want to sit there in silence and focus on whatever I'm trying to focus on. So bright, that can be a really nice thing to do solo.   Emil: If I had a choice between pm and agent, I would go PM, just because they have to manage the thing, you know, like agents trying to sell you the thing. pm is trying to manage the thing. So there, they have a little bit more skin in the long term game. So I like the PMs perspective, a little bit more in that regard. And they may, you know, they may be able to take you down a couple streets and be like, yeah, we have properties here. It's great. It's not great, blah, blah, blah, things like that.   It's kind of just like, literally, I would rent a car and just drive around. I think that would be the most beneficial thing I could do. Obviously, I'm going to do a lot of research I already invest here. So I've I'm gonna assume I've done my homework, right? Like I've I've looked out where property values are an area where I'm targeting, what are the rents in that area? What is the quality of that neighborhood using things like Roofstock's, neighborhood rating are truly as crime maps, things like that to kind of hone in on a couple sub markets. And then I'm really just driving around seeing like, where cool shops and restaurants and things like that popping up and you know, near some of the areas I'm looking at that could drive rents up things like that make it desirable. So those are mine. Kind of the things I'm I'm looking to do.   Tom: I love it. That's great, Michael 24 hours in a city you're evaluating?   Michael: Yeah. So I and I have not invested there, I'm considering investing there. So I've done this numerous times, it's it can be a lot of fun if the trip goes well if you do a lot of your homework. And so first and foremost, I would say the trip begins well before you get there. And so having an agent that you've spoken to that you've selected from numerous agents you've interviewed is really important. And then having a property tours lined up in advance I think is a really good way to go about it.   And so what I did is I went out to the market in the Midwest, this is a while back. And I had one agent selected from numerous agents i'd spoken to she had properties lined up that we were going to go see from this hour to this hour. And then I also had standing meetings with different property managers that I was going to go interview in person of the ones that I had interviewed over the phone and had made a shortlist of.   So I went very similar to a meal went property to a ring instead of neighborhood to ring and looked at specific properties for several hours throughout the day. And then went and met with property managers after the fact. And then I was able to show that the properties that I had just seen and talked about the ones I liked, or disliked.   And so in addition, there's that research element when you're determining who your agents are just doing some research about some restaurants in advance, or some things that you want to see in the area, I think is really beneficial as well. And I am very, very fortunate in that my wife is the research queen, she always has his amazing itinerary set for us before we go places. And so my most recent trip out to the Midwest, she found like the top 10 best restaurants out in Cincinnati and was like, Here you go, you gotta go check them out.   So I think eating and dining at local establishments, in the words of I think it was a little mermaid that I want to be where the people are, to go see who you know, who is there, what's the what's the feel, what's the energy like? So I think that is is really, really important as well. And I talk a lot in Roofstock Academy about, you know, when you go to a market, you can't unsee an unexperienced things. And so if you have a bad experience, or get a bad taste in your mouth, that's going to affect your maybe want to invest in that market, which can almost be a detriment, because from a pure investment standpoint, it might not matter how the neighborhood makes you feel.   But on the opposite side of the coin, if you have a really great experience that could only bolster you know, your desire to want to invest in the area, which can be helpful as long as the numbers make sense too. So I think having a great experience and just learning the market being around can be very helpful and very beneficial.   And then also when you're just shooting the breeze with people, you know, in talking about different markets with different professionals or different agents, you say, Oh, you know, I love my favorite restaurant is so and so and they go oh yeah, it's right down there by whatever. You just have a better working knowledge conversationally and physically of what the market is like. So I'm meeting with my agent During properties, meeting with property managers and having a gastronomical 24 hours as well.   Tom: I love the food aspect. I'll throw a couple of notes in there as well. And at a very high level, I mean, we've we've purchased properties without visiting them. You know, I wouldn't say it's necessarily like a hard requirement to go. But if you have the opportunity, I mean, why not? You know, one thing that we didn't talk about is, this is a business trip and those type of expenses. I mean, this is not tax advice. But with these type of business expenses, flight, hotel, car rental, you know, even food, there are some potential tax opportunities to as to be able to write off, deduct all that good stuff.   So, but again, this is not tax advice. But in doing that, there is some definitely some juice to squeeze with that opportunity of those costs.   Michael: Keep track of everything.   Tom: Yeah, totally keep track of receipts of everything, for sure. The other point that I really like about Michael and I've done a bunch of market tours, just working in the real estate space for a while is to you do a lot of your work ahead of time, and having like a really thorough agenda and schedule is you're going to get that much more value out of it when you go because your time is super valuable. So you want to have it pretty lined up with a pretty tight agenda by the time you get out there. You know, from from touring, to meeting with vendors, property managers, whatnot.   The other thing that I'll add in there is Be it a market that you currently invest in, or that you're evaluating investing in, I would recommend taking time to see like range of multiple neighborhoods. So for all of these, at least specially with these, like big cities, there are some pretty big swings, like in the neighborhoods, and I would try to see a range of cities.   So like, let's say you're going to Atlanta, um, you know, perhaps you're looking up north in Alpharetta or an area and you're looking at Stone Mountain, and then you're looking at, I would try to not just do one little pocket of a neighborhood and try to get some range into the neighborhoods that you're looking at. And then I would research them and kind of like, so you can set a baseline. So okay, this is a three star neighborhood. Okay, this is what a four star neighborhood in Atlanta looks like. Okay, this is what a two star neighborhood Atlanta light looks like. That way in evaluating future properties, you have a little bit of, you know, an idea of what that range is like, the the boots on the ground.   The other one with the property manager and the agent. It's great to get on the road. And definitely, you should do that while you're there. But I would recommend busting open a map with them, like while you're there and just kind of getting your feedback on the itinerary of what you're going to look at and get their input on. Because real estate is a moving target, right? And just kind of get their insight on like, okay, lately, we've been seeing a lot of transactions here, there's been some more vacancy here, there's been prices going up or rent, whatever. So I would recommend some time in the office with them kind of one on one and going through that.   And the very last thing I'll say on the culinary pieces, I love food, too. I love traveling different regional cuisine is amazing. And, you know, there's a lot of great resources out there, Yelp, one that I really like is the eater website. So if you do like, you know, Austin eater, or SF eater, they have a blog, and I think they keep it pretty well put together of like, you know, top 10 newest restaurants and do it like every month. So like that's a fun way to find new stuff. Word vomit done.   Emil: I want to quick question for you, Michael, you know, you you mentioned, sometimes you can't unsee what you've seen when you go when you go look somewhere? Do you think that I could actually be beneficial and that like a lot of people invest? You know, like the paper, the numbers on paper look great, but they're not factoring in that, you know, sometimes a certain neighborhood could, older home, lowering whatever it is that causes a lot of things that don't show up on the spreadsheet are hard to predict. And I think like if you go and see those things you're going to be it's a lot harder to just go into it blindly. And just like, you know, trick yourself in Excel.   Michael: Yeah, totally. I think I think that's a really great point Emil. Kind of the counterpoint to that is not so much of the specifics of the property itself. But let's say you go get on a flight to St. Louis, and you arrive, an airline lost your bag, and you go to rent a car. And that person at the car rental is just a real pain in the butt really rude and they and they don't have your reservation. And so now you're getting into a crappier car than you thought you were going to get without your bag and you show up to the hotel and I lost the reservation. And you're so you're sleeping in this tiny room and you're like man, St. Louis frickin sucks. And you just have a bad taste of St. Louis your mouth but has nothing to do with the property or the market itself.   So yes, I think to your point, you can see things in reality that you're not able to ascertain from a cap rate calculation are from a listing and that absolutely can influence you and can probably save you but just the sheer fact that the experience that you personally have and then you go there you go to the restaurant you got your order wrong. And the waitress, you know, the the waitstaff is really rude. You're like, Man, I've never come back St. Louis, this place sucks. That might taint you from making a really great investment. Because the numbers still make total sense. You just happen to have a crummy vacation, or a crummy work trip.   Michael: Got it? Okay. So So I encourage people to not let the personal bias personal experiences influence the investment side of the things. But of course, don't go into it going on their numbers all work. So I don't want to look at anything else.   Something else to just be cognizant of is, you know, where you're going to these market tours, I think it is really important to have a an agenda and locale agenda, whether that's you've planned it or your agent has planned it. But I would also if you're planning it, if you're going solo, get input from from local folks in the ground about the different markets, because one of the things you do want to make sure is, hey, you're a visitor, and this is a foreign place use, you just want to make sure that you're you're being safe, and you're being aware of your surroundings. And so getting input on the places that you're heading, I think is important, just like you would do as a tourist in any in any foreign in a foreign place.   Tom: That's a great point, Michael, on the the safety aspect, and also in looking at properties if you're going to go, you know, this is kind of common sense thing, but you know, if you're, maybe it's a house that's not for sale in a neighborhood, like don't be sketchy, you know, like, don't be I don't know, just looking into people's windows or whatnot. Use use your judgment and safety first. Yeah. And great point about asking about the different neighborhoods, so like, if you're going into an area that perhaps has higher crime, like, no kind of local, whatever boundaries, like if it's safe, if you're just yeah, be informed before going into an area.   Emil: My agent would always say, these are areas I don't feel comfortable going at night. And that's probably a good good barometer to like, Alright, cool. Good to know.   Michael: It was funny, just real, real quick, prior life anecdote. So I used to work as a professional fire protection engineer. And so I was going into this property that was vacant. And it was like this old, old, old, old, old abandoned warehouse and attached to office building like two or three square office building. And dude, who I was with was like, we were same age, and we were in our early 20s, whatever. And so we were shooting the breeze, whatever. And so we're walking through his warehouse and there was like, US syringes and like a chicken head inside of like a pentagram on the ground. And I was like, this is kind of weird, but we were like chatting, whatever, like my job is to look at this kind of stuff. So I need to look at the building.   So then we went into this office building and the power was off. There were no lights all the windows were boarded up, so it's pitch black. We both had our flashlights walking through and while walking, I'm like, why like what am I doing here? This is not like okay, this is safe. And the dude I'm chatting with like, meanwhile is up a floor above me and he's like, Hello, Is anybody here? Yes, a lot of times you find people in here and this and that. I'm like, like so not okay, like let's get out of here. We don't get paid enough to do this. Let's just leave. So for whatever that's worth be aware of your surroundings and if something doesn't feel right listen to your instincts.   Tom: Safety first one of my favorite episodes that we've done is the Halloween episode where we all you know we give Yeah, yeah, yeah, of ghosts and creepy creepy things found highly recommend checking out that episode our our Halloween episode. cool guys, any so anything wrapping up our 24 hours in a city?   Michael: I think just kind of to wrap things up, you're gonna be tired, especially if you're changing time zones, jetlag is a real thing, I seem to be very prone to it. And just I would say push through the tiredness, especially if you're just traveling, like the time there is going to be well spent, you're going to look back on it. And remember all of the information you gained or contacts you made much more so than the sleep you didn't get. And so I would encourage you to push yourself and work through that. And just make the most of the time you're there because it might only be for a 24 hour 12 hour, it might be a short timeframe. So go use that because you might not get a second opportunity.   Emil: My finishing tip if this is a market you've been investing in, you go there regularly, you know, you've met with your PMs, I would on return trips, not mentioned anything to my property managers and I'd go I'd go check out my properties. See how they're, it's kind of like a check without them, you know, you tell them you're coming in, they're gonna make sure your properties are nice and clean. All the landscaping is taken care of, I would hope at least that they do that. So you know, just go visit and don't mention anything and see how your properties are doing. It could be a good way to kind of trust but verify.   Tom: Love it. My last piece I'm going to say is do a post trip like little write up, you know, our little human brain are good at forgetting things and recovering things differently later. So on my flight back I do this, you know, I make a point of doing this before taking a nap is all kind of write down. Okay, what what what did I do? What were my takeaways from each thing. And you know, I may not look back on that paper like or that whatever spreadsheet or however I'm organizing it a long time. But something about writing it down. It's almost like I'm writing it into my brain. And I just remember it better on those type of trips. So, again, before you go, maybe set some clear objectives and like an agenda of what you're trying to accomplish. And then on the way back, take the time and write down what you what you discovered. And that way you're much more likely to take action and get value from it.   Michael: There's a ton of data to support that time that writing it down is imprinting it.   Tom: We're all big, personal productivity buffs and love to layer this stuff into our day to day investing stuff.   This episode today was brought to you by Roofstock Academy.
