[49:05] The Collective Mastermind Group
“Income doesn’t mean you have a ton of positive cash flow because hopefully, you’re using leverage on your properties. It just simply means that the asset is producing income to pay debts for you.”
“It’s not necessarily that many people are not ready to make a move, it’s just that they don’t want to because it’s so cost-prohibitive and when it gets this cost-prohibitive, they may not be in love with their home, but they’re in love with their loan.”
“The new underwriting has become so strict that the homeowners have good credit scores, they have low interest rates, 40% of loans in the country are paid off.”
“Overall, rents make the deal work and people, I really think should be more focused on that rental income than the housing prices because our people are not flipping these houses – they’re buying them and holding them for long-term income.”
“Income properties are pretty darn stable and the income component is quite reliable.”
