What do you WANT to see/hear in a podcast?

21 Replies

Hi All,

A couple of quick questions and poll to the group here - we're in the process of building a podcast platform and wanted to solicit some input from this group. 

-Why do YOU listen to a podcast? What are you listening for? Advise, entertainment, etc? 

-What are you NOT getting today that you'd love to tune in to? 

-What do you listen to now that you want MORE of? 

Thanks in advance, really appreciate everyone's input. 

Best,

Andrew

I like to hear the realities of investing. I am kinda tired with all these investors with a coaching/mentor platform that sugarcoat investing, for the sole purpose of growing their own pipeline.

Investing is a tedious a long-game process... and I feel like not a lot of people truly understand the dynamics of a deal. I guess the main concept is just oversimplification. 

I would like to hear the ugly side of investing and how they over came it, the loses, wins and the will not to quit. Even the people that quit, but came back to it.

I agree there  needs to be MORE of this.  Often times there may be a few references to mistakes, but not much on how they overcome mistakes and obstacles, etc.

Agree. Less interviews with mega-investors 1000+ units, coaches, mentors. More "average" investors like me that have purchased and sold, own 20, 30, 40+ units and looking to scale to 200-400. Real deal examples from sourcing to closing and deal structuring to make these crazy prices work, not just success stories but the mistakes or bad deals as well. Too many success stories out there and there is no shame in the bad ones, but I suppose people (syndicators/coaches/mentors) don't prefer to expose their reps to that but there are valuable lessons to be learned. Maybe I'm off and that people listed because they want to constantly want to be inspired. I like to relate now and then to investors on my own level. I can't relate to (nor do I inspire to be) an investor or group that owns 6000 units with a team of 12 underwriters, etc. I should add...don't need a lot of REI 101, either. I'd like more mid-level experience stuff. I've overdosed on high level, inspirational, motivational stuff.

Amen to all of this! Your voice is heard and many (including myself) can relate.  The first 4-5 interviews I have on my list are focused exactly on these profiles - those with some success, many failures, and are NOT well known names.  It's good to hear from the bigger names as well to see "what can be possible", but I've always found the "works in progress" the most motivating. 

 

I want to hear voices from authentic investors about the good, bad and ugly of investing. Tell us some of their best and worst real estate deals. Walk us through the deals, the experience, the numbers. Put us in the shoes of successful investors so we can use those experiences to elevate our mindset.

@Andrew Schutsky I don't hear much about the property management side of rental investments. Analyzing and getting the deal are all well and good, but what about after the dust settles and you have tenants? How do investors set up systems to manage their property(ies) efficiently? When do we bring in a legal team to help with tenant complaints? How do we prevent disastors from happening? And how should we respond when they do? This type of info would be very helpful for individuals like myself who want to manage property(ies) on their own vs. hiring a property management company.
