JC 079: Your Real Estate Portfolio in Your Pocket with Minesh Bhindi

November 13th, 2019 | no comments

Helping People Build Wealth with Real Estate

Minesh Bhindi has been a real estate investor since he was sixteen years old. He has leveraged his experience and knowledge to consistently achieve massive real estate success.Minesh and his father are the pioneers of a unique no-money down real estate transaction process in the UK. By eighteen, Minesh had completed his first independent real estate deal for three flats in the heart of London’s financial district, which netted him a cash-back on purchase of £68,000 and £250,000 in equity.

Minesh has built three companies to help investors implement the strategies that he has learned and successfully applied to acquire real estate, stocks, and gold and silver as income-generating assets.

Minesh Bhindi joins John Carney today in The Real Estate Locker Room to help us understand REITs and how to use them.

Five Key Points:

  1. The more you are prepared to walk away from a deal, the more it seems to chase you. The more real estate deals you have, the less attached you will feel to one particular deal. When you take the timidness out of your negotiation, it gives clarity to all of the parties involved.
  2. Diversify your real estate portfolio! Your investment doesn’t have to be a large multitude of physical properties. You can diversify in stocks and REITs and manage your real estate portfolio from your phone.
  3. Invest in REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts) that are managed by proven experts that give investors a double layer of protection.
  4. Real estate is a great vehicle for investing. If you invest correctly, your investments will bear fruit. You need to own at least a few physical properties (brick and mortar) but also know your objective and how you want to use your investments. Then partner with someone who has experience and expertise.
  5. Suggested practice to stay focused in life and work: transcendental meditation and Cuban cigars.

Favorite Sports:

  • Soccer

Pro tip:

  • Start. Most people won’t start. If you are sitting there and not doing anything… that’s the problem. The quicker you can get to the starting point, the better it will be for you.

JC 066: Crowdfunding 101: Just the Facts with Mark Roderick

May 8th, 2019 | no comments

Crowdfunding for real estate investors

Mark Roderick is one of the leading Crowdfunding and Fintech lawyers in the United States. Mark speaks across the country representing cross industry participants, expanding on his in-depth knowledge of capital-raising and securities law. Mark represents many portals and other players in the Crowdfunding field. He writes a widely read blog, crowdfundattny.com, which provides readers with a wealth of legal and practical information for portals, issuers and investors.

Mark Roderick joins John Carney today in The Real Estate Locker Room to discuss Crowdfunding and how to arm you with the knowledge to close the deal.

Five Key Points:

  1. Crowdfunding is using the Internet to raise capital and usually only happens when the market is up.
  2. There are 3 flavors of Crowdfunding (Titles refer to different sections) and for the 1sttime in US history, you may advertise all Titles.
    1. Title 2 – Very popular and an active option. Only one rule: only accredited investors can participate. This is based on the foundational principles in American Security laws from the 1930s.
    2. Title 3 – Brand new to the US security laws. Non-accredited investors can participate. However, it does not require FCC approval unlike Title 4. This is an experiment to test if the accredited investors will “fleece” non-accredited investors. Title 3 has many regulations, limits the amount of money you can raise, how much each person can invest (very small amount), among other things.
    3. Title 4- Similar to public offer. Non-accredited can participate but will have to jump through hoops and regulations. Similar to miniature public offering.
  3. The easiest way to approach the Crowdfunding market to already have success and have completed many deals through private clients. Then you can go to the top real estate Crowdfunding sites who already have investors registered.
  4. How do you get a standard rate of return and how do you safeguard it?
    1. Invest only at trusted sites.
    2. Invest in someone who is smarter than you. Use a real estate professional who has vetted the site you want to use and the deal.
    3. Invest in a fund instead of a single deal.
    4. Invest in a reputable site and get some diversification.
    5. Start with accountant and find a great lawyer.
  5. Rate of return and investor offering or receiving: depends on the asset class. Projected returns are going down due to a mature market.
