On today’s Creating Wealth Show, Jason Hartman talks about the vital side of investing that is construction cost. As an investor within real estate, it’s so important to know the situation, whether it be adjusting how much you pay contractors to match with the area itself or knowing just how much the replacements to your property would be compared with the actual cost price.

Key Takeaways

01.34 – With tickets hugely limited, it’s time to get excited about the best Meet the Masters event to date.

04.25 – As a prudent investor, you need to know the vital points about LTIs and regression to replacement costs. Learn all you need here.

06.31 – Jason Hartman’s personal risk evaluator model relies on construction cost and land cost, and this is a great way to minimize risk when investing in real estate.

11.26 – If you’re building in a higher price area, you’re going to have to pay your contractors more because they have to be able to afford to live in that area.

14.38 – Three sources of assessing your land value: tax collector or assessor for property taxes, an insurance broker – an insurance company selling you a policy based on the property, and an appraiser.

18.58 – If you’re interested in looking for the sorts of properties that can offer you regression to replacement opportunities, come along to the Birmingham, Alabama property tour in November.

25.06 – For more information specifically about risk assessment in investing, go to www.JasonHartman.com and type in ‘Hartman risk evaluator’ into the search bar to find podcasts and blog posts.

27.09 – Another recommendation for you is to look for the podcast and YouTube video about how to read a property Proforma. This is a really vital skill you can use to become a better investor.

At a period in America’s life when all seems insurmountable, what with an astronomical national debt, high unemployment and underemployment, failing small businesses, and controlling corporate interests that don’t seem to have American citizens’ best interest in mind, it’s hard to believe that America is truly rich.  Join Jason Hartman as he interviews Dr. Nick Begich, founder of Earthpulse Press, regarding the true wealth of America.  Only looking at the profit and loss statements of our country and of many businesses conjures up a sense of failure and hopelessness, but Dr. Begich shares his optimism about America’s profitable future, encouraging people to look at the assets sheet, i.e. the vast resources our country boasts.  The mineral wealth alone in this country is enough to retire the national debt, as well as put Americans back to work for a very long time. 

Dr. Nick Begich is the eldest son of the late United States Congressman from Alaska, Nick Begich Sr., and political activist Pegge Begich. He is well known in Alaska for his own political activities. He was twice elected President of both the Alaska Federation of Teachers and the Anchorage Council of Education. He has been pursuing independent research in the sciences and politics for most of his adult life.

Begich received Doctor of Medicine (Medicina Alternitiva), honoris causa, for independent work in health and political science, from The Open International University for Complementary Medicines, Colombo, Sri Lanka, in November 1994. He co-authored with Jeane Manning the book Angels Don’t Play This HAARP; Advances in Tesla Technology. Begich has also authored Earth Rising – The Revolution: Toward a Thousand Years of Peace and his latest book Earth Rising II- The Betrayal of Science, Society and the Soul, both with the late James Roderick.

His latest work is Controlling the Human Mind – The Technologies of Political Control or Tools for Peak Performance. Begich has published articles in science, politics and education and is a well known lecturer, having presented throughout the United States and in nineteen countries. He has been featured as a guest on thousands of radio broadcasts reporting on his research activities including new technologies, health and earth science related issues. He has also appeared on dozens of television documentaries and other programs throughout the world including BBC-TV, CBC-TV, TeleMundo, and others.

With a high number of foreclosures still haunting homeowners, Jason Hartman and Chad Ruyle, principal and co-founder of YouWalkAway.com, discuss strategic defaults, homeowners’ rights, understanding the foreclosure process, and how homeowners can use the law to their advantage when their mortgage is in default. When should you walk away? How can you minimize foreclosure consequences?

Chad R. Ruyle has been interviewed by journalists for CBS 60 Minutes, ABC Nightline, The Today Show on NBC, Dylan Ratigan, and NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams to name a few.  Ruyle is also a partner at the Law Firm of Ruyle& Ruyle in San Diego and has incorporated his extensive legal background into YouWalkAway.com.  He sees mortgage defaulting as a business transaction not an emotional decision.  Mortgage contracts are written with addressing potential foreclosures – clearly stating if the borrower ceases to make payments, the bank will take the house back. Ruyle focuses his practice on all areas of trusts and estates, business planning, and real estate transactions.

The main focus of this episode of The Creating Wealth Show will be: Defending Against The Demons of Investing.

The world of investing involves many considerations. Chief among these are the two “Demons” of investing that must both be defeated in order to realize success. The first demon is risk, and the second is inflation. Risk comes from the fact that future returns are uncertain, and it is not possible to foresee all future events. Investments that seem ‘safe’ may turn out to have hidden dangers that we did not notice. Risk can never be eliminated, it can only be managed. The best way to do this is by properly diversifying your investments so that they are not all subject to the same market shocks. The second demon of investing is inflation. Inflation is especially difficult because it erodes the value of your dollars. Defeating the demon of inflation requires investment in multi-dimensional assets that are optimized to defeat inflation. Income properties meet this criteria well because the property itself holds real value by nature of the replacement cost of the structure, the loan allows you to have a fixed cost of capital for three decades, and the cash flow is pushed up by inflation while you cost structure remains flat because of the fixed-rate financing.

Jason Hartman talks with investment counselor, Sara, about investor psychology, overcoming obstacles and getting out of our own way.  The smoke-and-mirrors propaganda perpetuated by mainstream media (lamestream media as Sarah Palin says) in reporting the new high in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA).  

They almost always fail to distinguish between nominal dollars and real dollars.  Jason illustrates how investors have actually lost money in inflation adjusted dollars and how the Dow has to increase a lot more before investors break even based on the two peaks.  This lie is even worse when one considers how inflation is underreported in the consumer price index (CPI and CPI-U) due to weighting, substitution and hedonics (the hedonic index).  Another misrepresentation is the ‘core rate’ or ‘core inflation’ which strips out food and energy because they’re too volatile.  Jason shares some interesting data from ZeroHedge.com.

Jason and Sara discuss announce the Memphis Distressed Property Tour and Creating Wealth Bootcamp, register at: http://www.jasonhartman.com/ (click on “events”). The Memphis Hilton will host the event.

You’ll hear a mortgage financing panel from Jason’s ‘Meet the Masters of Income Property Investing’ event last January in Irvine, California.  Many topics are discussed, including:

 

 

  • How investors can obtain more than 10 Fannie Mae (FNMA) loans
  • How banks underwrite non-owner occupied loans
  • Implications of strategic default
  • Property financing with entities like LLCs, corporations and trusts
  • Private lending/hard money lending options
  • And much more

If you thought economics was boring, think again. At the heart of wars, land grabs, politics, history, and almost any sort of human interaction lies economics. Remember – economics is about money, and money, depending upon your perspective, either makes the world go ‘round or is the root of all evil.

Either way, Jason Hartman’s interview of master economist, Martin Armstrong, for episode #382 of The Creating Wealth Show makes for scintillating listening. First, some background.

Martin Armstrong is the former chairman of Princeton Economics International Ltd. He is best known for his economic predictions based on the Economic Confidence Model, which he developed. In September 1999, Armstrong faced prosecution by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission for fraud. During the trial, Armstrong was imprisoned for over seven years for civil contempt of court, one of the longest-running cases of civil contempt in American legal history. In August 2006, Armstrong pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit fraud, and began a five-year sentence.

Armstrong is the developer of the Economic Confidence Model based on business cycles. He is known for claiming to have predicted the crash of 1987 to the very day. Using his theory that boom-bust cycles occur once every 3,141 days (the number pi multiplied by 1000), Armstrong claimed in 1999 to have predicted the Nikkei’s collapse in 1989 and Russia’s financial collapse in 1998.

During this interview Jason and Martin delve into a number of topics:

Putin’s Plan
Armstrong reminds us that Russian President Putin is a KGB disciple who would love nothing more than to put the Soviet Union back together. Through this prism, it’s not difficult to see the reasons behind his land grab in the Ukraine. He believes that the strength of a nation depends upon how much territory it owns, so look out Poland, etc! It’s also worthwhile to note that the failure of communism in Russia left a void that has been filled by a good, old-fashioned oligarchy.

Inflation vs. Deflation
As all good economists do, Mr. Armstrong has a strong understanding of, and opinions about, the inflation and deflation in an economy. Of course, Jason loves this topic whenever it arise in conversation. The main point Martin makes is that it is not inflation that destroys an economy, but rather deflation. Listen in as he explains exactly how.

Other notes of interest from the interview:

  • Why we’re on a 25-year war cycle and 8.6-year business cycle
  • Why the US ended up in the enviable/unenviable status as the Brinks truck to the world
  • Is the American dollar now a de facto international currency?
  • The US will never enter hyperinflation (400% monthly inflation) – our corrupt bankers won’t let it happen
  • It’s almost impossible for Americans to open a bank account or do business overseas – what is Europe afraid of?
  • The next economic implosion will be in pension funds
  • The real reason behind the recent huge influx of foreigners buying real estate investments in the US

In the beginning, Jason Hartman created the 10 Commandments of Successful Investing, and he saw that it was good. But then he lived and learned and realized there was a desperate need for 10 more. Listen in as Jason Hartman discusses The Next 10 Commandments of Successful Investing. This keynote speech was taped live at the opening of our 2013 Meet the Masters of Income Property Investing Event at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine, California. With all deference to the Big Guy upstairs, when it comes to income property investing, Jason Hartman realized that 10 commandments simply weren’t enough to cover such an important topic. Not when creating financial independence is at stake.

What’s in the new commandments? Another generous helping of the kind of nitty gritty (and free) income property investing educational detail you’ve come to expect from Jason. Commandments 11-20 include:

Thou Shalt Not Be a Sucker

Thou Shalt Have a Reality Check

Thou Shalt Embrace Fragmentation

Thou Shalt Make Rational Decisions

Thou Shalt Look at the Big Picture

. . . and five more critical NEW commandments

In case you haven’t committed the original 10 Commandments of Successful Investing to memory, here’s a quick refresher::

1. Thou shalt become educated: Knowledge is a powerful tool. Do your due diligence and become your own best advisor.

2. Thou shalt have a professional investment counselor: Only invest with investment professionals who stay with you for the long term. Advisors should buy for themselves what they sell, putting their money where their mouth is, and get paid for producing results rather than simply for advice.

3. Thou shalt maintain control: Never leave your financial future in the hands of incompetent, unethical, or greedy brokerage houses, fund managers or corporations. Always be a direct investor.

4. Thou shalt use prudent financial planning techniques: Always invest with your goals in mind (retirement, financial freedom, creating wealth) and abide by your risk tolerance and investing style.

5. Thou shalt not gamble: Be a prudent, long-term value investor, never a get-rich-quick gambler, speculator, or flipper. Invest only in properties that make good financial sense the day you buy them.

6. Thou shalt diversify: reduce risk and maximize returns by investing in several areas, as every market is different.

7. Thou shalt be Area Agnostic™: Only invest with an advisor who is not partial to any one area or investment to avoid a conflict of interest. Don’t fall in love with your home geographical area!

8. Thou shalt borrow to maximize leverage and accelerate wealth creation: Use as much borrowed money and as little of your own money as possible as long as the borrowed money can be repaid by the tenant. Let other people’s money work for you, reduce your risk, and make you wealthy.

9. Thou shalt only invest where there is universal need: No one needs stocks, bonds, or gold but everyone needs a place to live, and with growing affluence around the world, consumption of raw materials will continue to cause upward price pressure on improved real estate.

10. Thou shalt invest only in tax-favored assets: Non-cash write-offs and deductions are money in your pocket and income property offers the best of both.

A look at Jason’s Ultimate Investing Equation followed by Daniel and Gerard Adams for The National Inflation Association (NIA) recently featured on Inside Edition and ABC World News Tonight with Charlie Gibson, The Wall Street Journal, MSNBC, ABC’s Nightline, KTLA News and CNBC. After being ignored by  family and friends about the coming stock market decline and recession, he started a youtube channel called VisionVictory with some very interesting predictions on record:

On march of 2008 in his first video, he accurately predicted that the Dow would fall to 8,000 in the fall of 2008. The S&P would fall to 800 in the fall of 2008. And that global stocks wouldn’t decouple until after the fall of 2008.

In July of 2008, he updated his prediction and told his youtube viewers that stocks were set to drop on the 3rd week of September and they did, in a big way, from the 3rd week of September to the 3rd week of October stocks fell 33%.

In December of 2008 he made a new prediction, that stocks would make new lows sometime in late February 2009. On the 3rd week of February, guess what? The Dow and S&P made new lows.

in 2008 while Ben Bernanke, Jim Cramer, and college professors around the world were predicting that the U.S. would not enter a recession. Daniel predicted a severe recession that would break all previous records. While Ben Bernanke said a recovery would take place in the summer of 2008, Daniel correctly predicted that the world would acknowledge the recession after the summer of 2008, and they did.

He also correctly forecasted rising unemployment, a collapse of consumer spending and many more well timed predictions.

The VisionVictory Channel is now watched by thousands and has a subscription base of 17,500. The VisionVictory Channel is also part of the National Inflation Association and helped with the documentary, Meltup.

in 2008 while Ben Bernanke, Jim Cramer, and college professors around the world were predicting that the U.S. would not enter a recession. Daniel predicted on the record, a severe recession that would break all previous records. While Ben Bernanke said a recovery would take place in the summer of 2008, Daniel correctly predicted that the world would acknowledge the recession after the summer of 2008, and they did.

He also correctly forecasted rising unemployment, a collapse of consumer spending and many more well timed predictions.

Whether it’s your spouse, significant other, family, friends, or even business associates, each individual speaks his or her own love language.  “The Five Love Languages” are:  Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch.  Understanding which of these languages makes that special someone feel loved can be essential to the success of any relationship.   Join Jason Hartman and renowned author, Dr. Gary Chapman as they discuss these timeless concepts and how our primary language affects our interactions in our relationships.  Please visit: http://www.jasonhartman.com/podcast.

Unlike stocks, bonds, mutual funds or commodities such as precious metals like gold and silver – real estate is a multi-dimensional asset class. The multi-dimensional nature of income property makes it extremely profitable in changing ways based on varying market conditions. This is a wonderful thing because investors can profit even seemingly “bad” markets. For example, when financing becomes expensive (low housing affordability rates) or difficult to qualify for (low capital liquidity) it can create excellent opportunities to increase rents. When mortgage rates are low and qualifying is easy it can spur terrific appreciation. You can win either way so long as you adapt your strategy based on economic realities.

Additionally, a discussion about Macro vs. Micro Markets™ so don’t just run out and buy based on a city – be sure to screen and drill down into the various Micro Markets™ within each city. Since you can’t buy all of them… you may as well buy the best ones!

Last but not least Jason recommends the book “Revolutionary Wealth” by Alvin and Heidi Toffler.

Inspired by an article from Business Insider, Jason Hartman invites Dan Egan of Betterment onto the show to expand upon the idea of market timing. While much of the focus is on Wall Street and how market timing works in the stock market, a lot of these ideas can be applied to real estate investing.

There’s a nostalgic feeling to today’s Creating Wealth Show as Jason Hartman provides a live recording from the 2014 Meet the Masters event in Orange County, California. This gives listeners a taste of what they can expect from the January 2015 event in Irvine, California, and also provides a good opportunity to see how far the financial and real estate worlds have come over the past months. Key topics covered include the Case-Shiller index, reassessing Rent-to-Value ratios and the development of bitcoin.

 

Key Takeaways

04.30 – Jason Hartman’s investment strategy doesn’t focus on appreciation – if it happens, it’s a bonus.

07.45 – Bitcoin and its competing alternative cyber currencies really came about because people are starting to doubt the fiat money Central Banking model that we’ve become accustomed to.

14.08 – As humans, we find it inherently difficult to know when to cut losses and just walk away.

15.50 – Niall Ferguson claims that the most powerful part of the financial system is the bond market, and we would all do well to remember that.

20.09 – Real estate is not a very liquid market and so even when prices drop, they don’t drop as quickly as most other asset classes.

26.18 – Rent-to-value ratios change totally if you think about the actual utility cost per month – how much is your renter paying to use your property, and how does that compare with what you think the value is?

31.23 – The forms and uses of money have changed many times throughout history, and now we’re dealing with the technological side of currency, which has led us to bitcoin.

39.50 – Jason Hartman goes through step-by-step considering the relative merits and failings of the dollar, bitcoin, gold and income property.

Patrick Cox produces unbiased and independent research in the field of transformational technology. He has worked closely with Nobel Prize-winning scientists and economists along with having over 200 of his editorials appear on the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and more. Patrick shares some insider science to Jason and his audience today and also talks about some very interesting medical advancements the media fails to report on. 

 

Key Takeaways:

4:35 – Conviction and convenience do not live together, so you have to separate yourself from convenience. 

7:10 – If you have plans to do great things, you are bound to find some resistance from your friends and family. 

10:00 – You can't get more in life until you are grateful for what you have today. 

14:00 – Birmingham property tour is coming up and Meet the Masters event is coming up in January. 

18:00 – There's a lot of exciting things going on in science, but you wouldn't know that because the media is very poor at reporting science.

30:10 – Scientists did tests on a chemical compound called anatabine and found it be the most effective anti-inflammatory agent ever discovered.

42:15 – We have the tech crowd pushing against the roadblocks that cutting-edge medicine is facing.

Jason Hartman deals with issues in his introduction such as how to deal with your property manager, what we need to know about monetary policy and considers just how intricate the links between politics and real estate investment really are.

36.35 – Jason Hartman takes the matter and asks “Do we even really need a Central Bank?”

37.35 – Ellen Brown remarks that she would opt for a bottom-up government where each level is selected by people that personally know the individual.

40.04 – People are using money to work their way higher and higher, and now we’re at a point where banks own businesses which they really shouldn’t. They should be in banking.

41.35 – There may be a chance that crowd-funding initiatives can remove Wall Street from the funding equation.
