  1. David Green is a born professor educator! His brilliant analogies have helped me understand so many realestate investment strategies that were difficult to wrap my head around.

  2. I just got "SOLD" and "BRRRR" in the mail. It would have been cooler if I could have got them signed somewhere, but I'll take what I can get. Knowledge is Power. Keep of the good works.

  3. Absolutely love this format. Please keep it up. It would be helpful to hear advice on scaling, particularly as it applies to financing (DTI, loan type, etc) and how to balance debt load vs risk.

  4. Hey David. I'm in need of some consultation. I closed on a multifamily with a 1031 exchange in April and am trying to do a cash out refi now in December. Will I be raising a Red Flag with the IRS?

  5. Two things 1) amazing lighting upgrade! and 2) how do I get in your database? I live on the peninsula and dance in the east bay weekly in Richmond. Would love to come to a meet up.

    This episode was great for me as I’ve been grappling with the cash flow vs equity growth.

    Here’s another “vs” question: my main strategy is to diversity as protection against my relative newness. How about: concentrate investments in one area for economy of scale VS. diversify geographically for regional diversification?

  6. Betting on appreciation in a market that may be close to peaking is really stupid. Do the work to find real value add properties that will cash flow. If it doesn't fit into your buy box, don"t buy it.

  7. PLEASE KEEP MAKING SHOWS LIKE THIS. I prefer this format to the podcast/discussion format. Listening to you on your own describe important questions in real estate investing helps me plan my future. Thank you so much!

  8. Thank you David The show was great, great answers David you are awesome I'm looking on a house in Ruskin Florida to buy I'm a Newbie on bigger pockets and this will be my first investment property.
