Wouldn’t it be great if someone explained the kinds of real estate deals in easy to understand language? In this video, successful multi-family property investor Rob Rowsell does just that. Are you a cash flow investor? Perhaps are you looking for back end equity instead? Either way, you will learn the nuts and bolts of these investment deals in this video.
What Kinds of Real Estate Deals Are There? How Do They Work?
Rob starts the discussion off on the kinds of real estate deals. He explains that a cash flow investor puts his or her money into an investment and receives a regular return on it quickly. A back end deal, however, works differently. An extreme example of a back end equity play involves injecting capital into a new construction project. You may have to wait a long time in order to get a return on your investment. Some factors in that deal include waiting on the land purchase to go through, hiring contractors, and building inspections before getting paid. Depending on the specifics of your deal, your payout could come at different times during the life of the building. Many times, a balloon payment is made to catch investors up when the building is sold.
Other factors to consider is turnover of tenants and renovations to an existing property. If you are in a position to wait these out, you could conceivably make a greater return than you could over the life of a cash flow deal.

How close are you to absolute financial freedom? Rob Rowsell talks about how to grow your money and live off of investment income only. Rob has transitioned from a multiple business owner to a multiple family real estate investor. Who better to take advice from? Rob has learned the hard way how to avoid unwise investments and do his due diligence to ensure his income only comes from his properties.
Tasks to Transition to Living Off of Your Investment Income
Rob starts off the clip laying out his current financial situation. He no longer holds a conventional “W-2” job. Therefore, he depends solely on his apartment holdings to generate cash. Reinvesting that cash wisely is his key to maintaining financial freedom. Do you still have a full time day job? You can still take steps to eventually fund your lifestyle solely from investment income. If you dedicate just eight hours per quarter to your investments, you are well on your way.

However, performing your due diligence will pay dividends for you and any potential investment partners down the line.

The ATL Financial Discussion Community talks about the five lanes we can travel in with our lives. Rob encouraged each investor to improve on one problem area of their lives since last month’s investment conference. Both Rob and Gary are here to encourage the investors in our groups to live fulfilled, balanced lives.
Investment Options Financial Discussion
Rob opened up this segment with a review of the Five Lanes from the last call. Previously, each caller discussed how they rated their performance in each category. He reminded the ATL members that at the end of the day, he was there to help spark the change each of them needed. Last month, the roundtable members admitted they needed to improve areas of social interaction, health, and community service. If nobody improves, these Zoom calls are all for naught. Rob truly believes that anyone can reach his level of success if they focus, work hard, and be patient.
The five lanes we previously discussed ranged from fast (hot) to slow (cold), based on what level of priority they were. Specifically, Rob mentioned their correlation to JR Covey’s Four Quadrants of Time Management. The individual issues members mentioned fall into the social concerns in Quadrant Two. This means that they are important, but not urgent. Therefore, it is easy to put off improving those areas. Immediately, you won’t tell a difference, but over time, they will cause problems if you do not work on them.
