Today we’re swerving a bit from tradition to bring you a guest who is not a real estate investor. Jeff Thorman spent years as a general contractor, built his own company, then started his own YouTube channel, HomeRenovisionDIY, to teach people how to renovate their own homes.
Learn from his years of experience renovating in this episode. Jeff brings us incredible tips on building strong relationships with contractors - from inquiry to project close. We discuss the importance of using quality materials in any project. We even dive into some projects you should absolutely be able to do-it-yourself as an investor. As a real estate investor, you will have to complete renovation projects at some point - use this episode to make sure those projects are seamless and successful!
When Tarl Yarber last appeared on the show (#189), we got a behind-the-scenes look at his monster house flipping business.
He was doing a lot of volume, but here's the catch: he was stressed out and unhappy. Plus... with zero rentals to his name, he had to keep spinning the hamster wheel – "feeding the machine" – to make any money.
Today's show is about a big mindset shift, and the systems and teams Tarl put in place to create a business that truly serves him, rather than the way around... and allows he and his wife to travel 200 days a year while working on his business rather than in it.
We cover a lot of topics here, from high-level success principles to the specific real estate investing actions you can take – today – to adopt a more intentional and focused approach to building longterm wealth.
Lastly – Tarl's an exceptional networker, and the guys discuss the importance of meeting up with other rockstar investors even if the pandemic is preventing you from doing it in person.
So... how do you do that?
Well, Tarl's hosting a virtual conference September 18-19, and he's offering a 50% discount to BiggerPockets Pro members (check your email). This isn't a series of webinars, either... You'll be able to actually meet up with other attendees through online breakout groups, so it solves for the biggest challenge most investors are facing right now.

In today's episode we open up the phone lines again to field your real estate investing questions... and for an added twist, we bring in the familiar voice of author, BiggerPockets Business Podcast host, and house flipper/investor extraordinaire J Scott.
You'll hear callers chime in with questions like: 1) "Help me get started" 2) "should I partner with family members?" 3) "How do I transition from single family to multifamily" – and much more! From refinancing and the finer points of BRRRR... to mentorship and long-distance investing... It's all here!
