Join me and my co-host, Vince Gethings, as we chat with Rob Beardsley about how to underwrite a multifamily real estate deal. Rob is an incredible author, speaker, and the founder and principal of Lone Star Capital, a real estate investment firm. In this episode, he shares with us great insights about preferred equity, the structure of underwriting during the pandemic, doing your due diligence, and much more! 

Being Busy Doesn’t Mean You’re More Successful

Most people think that when you’re busy and have a lot of responsibilities, you’re more successful. Then they overload themselves with work and try to do everything on their own. However, the truth is the more you’re busy, the less you’re actually living and doing less for yourself. Many of us make this mistake of not trusting others because we believe that we can do better than them. This kind of wrong belief will only make your life more difficult. 

In the real estate industry, trust and great communication are very important factors that you should have in every work and business relationship you get into. Delegating and leveraging the company work through your team is essential for your business growth. By doing this, you’re making yourself more available to opportunities for success and important matters that will help you scale faster. 

Always Do Your Due Diligence

The due diligence you do and the value you bring to every relationship is important. Rob says that due diligence is something you cannot really do enough of and can be learned the easy way. Your tasks and responsibilities are some things that you should be accountable for in doing. Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean you have to do them alone. Finding great partners and team members that will complement your strengths and weaknesses can greatly help you achieve your goals! You’ll become reminded and more motivated to do your work if you have the right people around you.
