How I Make A Fortune On Airbnb Owning No Property | DONT BUY A HOME FOR AIRBNB IN 2019

Sharing buttons:

welcome back Airbnb family today we're gonna talk about a discussion that has

been passed around in my social circle a lately which is whether it's better to

go for equity or cash flow when buying your first Airbnb home now I have a very

strong opinion on this and I'm sure plenty of you do on either side of the

fence but mine is gonna mess with you here my opinion..

Don't buy a home! don't buy a single property if you want to be an Airbnb host and there's a very good

reason for this we're gonna jump right into it it's a very simple math problem

if you want to have multiple Airbnb properties and be successful as a

business don't buy your home so here we go let's say you are buying your first

investment property you need 20% down because it's a non FHA you're not gonna

live there you're gonna run out the entire place on Airbnb which means since

you're not living there it's an investment property 20% down so let's

say you buy a $250,000 home with two bedrooms and your 50,000 down you also

need to upgrade it possibly and furnish it so you're looking at potentially

$70,000 a month before you're live on air BnB now that two-bedroom property

will profit you maybe $5,000 and that is including your equity because you'll

have to pay property taxes utilities pay for your cleaner etc and in this example

the other person's gonna pay for their cleaners too so let's keep it even so

you're gonna make maybe sixty two to sixty five hundred dollars a month on

your two-bedroom and your profit after all the costs will be five thousand

dollars including your equity and so seventy thousand and five thousand

dollars a month out okay that's the homeowner side now I rent my property

i furnish them and then I short-term rent them now let me tell you what I do

with my seventy thousand dollars in this situation I get ten properties right it

cost me about seven thousand dollars per that includes my cost of getting my

first lease the furniture everything okay so at ten properties

my rents are probably about fifteen hundred dollars in average with my

utility costs sixteen fifty I don't have to pay property taxes everything's

worked into the of course into the rent and I don't have to worry about insuring

my my appliances the landlord has to fix the plan

if they break things like that so 1650 and costs plus my cleaner costs I make

about three thousand dollars a month of my property so let's say just you know

conservatively I make nine hundred dollars per unit so ten units that's

nine thousand dollars a month where homeowner with their seventy thousand

dollars is now making five thousand per month so you can see I'm already ahead

by four grand a month but it doesn't even end there so the cool thing about

doing rentals is you can grow in smaller increments the moment I have another

seven grand I can put another property and have eleven right so first month I

make nine grand I can put seven thousand towards another property I make another

grand my second month I can put another property down my third month I make

another nine grand I can get almost two more properties my third month so by

month and a month three I'm looking at about fourteen properties which is

outstanding the person who owns a home they need to actually make profit for

fourteen months before they have seventy thousand dollars again before they can

get their second property now some of you homeowners are gonna say well I gain

valuation of my property because it's going to appreciate in value by like

three percent on average a year well let's factor that in so let's say that

your $250,000 home makes 3% a year you're looking at about seven thousand

dollars a year in appreciation so let's break that up to like six hundred and

fifty dollars a month and appreciation so you're making five thousand now let's

add the 650 so you're making fifty six fifty per month including your

appreciation I'm still making nine I'm still weaponeer there but let's talk

about housing bubbles right you could lose money on your property this could

actually happen also you could buy a home in a terrible part of town that's

not good for air B&B which means you own it you're gonna have to sell it or turn

it into a regular rental property which is not why we're here we're here to make

more money than that if I get a property where I lose money which I've done

before I just cut the lease right I'll even buy it out early if I really want

to get out of it fast so at worst case scenario I'm stuck with a property for a

year but it makes me more agile I'm in I'm out I find the right neighborhoods

and I make all my money that way and I do this completely legally we're gonna

actually cover this in a very recent like very near future video I'm gonna

actually show you the legal process that I take to pick up all of my leases and

homeowners or property management companies they can't

do anything about it they are stuck with me at least to the end of the lease so

we're gonna talk about that later and this is going to be the secret to making

your fortune on Airbnb but to keep on topic here don't buy your property it's

sluggish it's slow you need way too much money to get in initially now you're

money stuck in your property if you have to turn it into a regular rental which

is no fun it's just not nearly as profitable and it's a little harder to

manage too because you're stuck replacing your own appliances so I don't

if it's no breaks I'm like hey maintenance come in fix my stove thank

you goodbye and it's a lot easier for me to track my expenses too because

everything's kind of rolled into my lease agreements so if you have any

other questions kind of on this topic or maybe even like just some fast facts on
