CW 408: Jason Hartman's Timeless "Refi 'Till You Die" Investment Strategy to Multiply Long-Term Wealth
One of the core concepts that we communicate to our investors is to “Refi Till Ya Die” with your rental property portfolio. While this description may sound a bit snarky, it is a very powerful strategy for multiplying your wealth over the long-term.
The most unique part of this strategy is that it stands in stark contrast to the popular strategy of ‘flipping’ properties by buying and quickly re-selling them for quick profits. The strategy that we recommend is the exact opposite of this. At Platinum Properties, we advocate buying and holding prudent rental properties over a long period of time. This enables investors to build real wealth, instead of constantly churning properties. (And creating taxable gains)
There is another very powerful force behind our strategy of buy and hold investing. That power comes when the rents and value of your property increase over time. Typically, an investment property will start with low cash flow, and will grow in profitability as tenant rents are increased. This increase in revenues carries with it a tremendous tool for growing your wealth.
The way that you employ this tool is to refinance your property for more than your original purchase price, based on the increased cash flow. This will allow you to re-invest the amount of your loan that exceeds the original purchase price. And here comes the kicker . . . these net proceeds are not taxed!!!
The reason that you will not owe taxes on the re-financing of your properties is because loans are not taxed. Since you are taking out a loan instead of selling the property, no taxable transaction is triggered. (Granted, capital gains can be deferred via 1031 exchange, but you will still lose 5% to 6% of the property value off the top from realtor fees. Thus, investors can “Refi Till Ya Die” and legally avoid paying taxes on the increased loan amount of their properties. (In addition to this, the increased interest payments from your new loan will reduce the tax burden of your regular cash flow)
These strategies can super-charge wealth creation by allowing investors to capture their equity growth for re-investment. These perpetual re-investments accelerate the natural compounding of your investment portfolio. It also carries the benefit of consistently increasing your use of fixed-rate debt as a shield against inflation. Prudent investors realize the incredible power of this strategy, and should seek to capitalize on it to build their wealth during these increasingly difficult times.

Tom Essaye is the Editor of The Sevens (7:00) Report. He joins the show to discuss macroeconomic topics including China, Russia, and junk bonds.
Essaye is a professional trader with more than 10 years experience trading foreign and domestic equities, commodities, currencies and bonds.
He began his career as a trader on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange for Merrill Lynch’s Institutional Equity Trading division, where he regularly traded multi-million dollar orders from clients that were some of the largest mutual and hedge funds in the world.
In early 2005, Tom Essaye recognized, through his own fundamental analysis and research, a unique investment opportunity developing in the natural resource sector and commodities markets. He left the floor of the NYSE to join an associate starting a fledgling global macro hedge fund focused on investing in commodities and natural resource equities. Mr. Essaye was responsible for all trading in the fund and for conducting fundamental research in the commodities and natural resource markets.
The fund made investments in precious metals, agricultural commodities, energy, and natural resource related equities – placing initial long positions in gold below $500/oz, silver below $7.00/oz, corn below $2.00/bushel and buying shares in then little followed equities such as Silver Wheaton, Newmont Mining, Cameco and EOG Resources. The fund also invested in Canadian and Australian mining and energy companies, and at one point foreign equities comprised nearly half of the fund’s portfolio.
In mid-2007, while managing the energy sector portion of the fund, Mr. Essaye was one of the first analysts to realize the potential of shale natural gas, and invested heavily in shale gas producers and energy service companies that specialized in shale drilling.
While interacting with both institutional and retail investors during his time at the fund, Mr. Essaye first began to recognize the large discrepancy between the quality of information available to professional traders versus the that available to non-professional traders. The 7:00’s Report is the result of his desire to show the investing public how professional traders analyze and interpret the markets each day, and to demonstrate how, by trading a real money portfolio, that analysis translates to trade ideas and, ultimately, profitable investments.
