BiggerPockets Podcast 318: 100 Units in the First 2 Years (Using Bank Financing!) with Collin Schwartz

by | BiggerPockets.com

Interested in buying over 100 units in two years’ time? Today’s guest did just that!

Collin Schwartz shares the amazing story of how he built an impressive portfolio on the foundation of direct mail and networking through meetups. You’ll learn how Collin utilized a clever twist on the BRRRR method to avoiding paying cash for properties (but still get back his down payment), how he uses balloon notes to do this, and how his highly targeted direct mail strategy led to it all being possible. Collin also shares how he runs meetups to find deals, what his criteria are for buying properties, and how he partners/leverages with others to make this incredible success possible over such a short period of time.

Collin also earns income managing properties—and even leverages that business to find deals too! If you want a solid game plan that will lead to impressive growth, this is an episode you don’t want to miss!

    Great show. I have been to a couple of Collin’s meetups and they were great. Much better than the Omaha REIA. Collin is a great guy for putting this kind of thing together.

    Great episode. I have to admit that he has me beat in terms of growth and ambition.
