#66 Tracy Streich on Syndications

Mar 22, 2019 by Brad Larsen

Tracy Streich, an Oklahoma native, joins me today for a true mastermind episode. He’s a fellow property management company owner, and manages almost 500 doors. We’ll chat about best practices for all kinds of things, including short term rentals and syndications. This is a great conversation, so don’t miss out!

I love offering listeners fantastic benefits, such as some great discounts for products, with new offers coming all the time! You can see a complete list atpropertymanagementmastermind.com. For all of these offers, use the discount code “Brad” to secure your discount.

We’ll start off by sharing our thoughts on legislation, both in terms of Oregon’s recent statewide rent control laws and in terms of the dangers of acting like a property manager if you’re a real estate agent. From there, we move on to talking about syndications. Tracy explains that he raised about 30% and leveraged about 70% on three different funds, and chats about the experience he gained from the process.

As Tracy explains, syndication the way he does it is a three-step process with three separate ways of making income: buying the homes, managing them, and selling them at the end. As we’ll emphasize, it’s important to make sure you’re doing all of this right, so get a competent lawyer from the beginning!

From syndication, we’ll move on to talking about short-term rentals. As you’ll learn today, Tracy owns and manages several short-term rentals, and he shares his experience in getting started as well as sharing some words of wisdom for listeners who are interested in getting into this market. We’ll also spend a lot of time digging into resident benefit packages, including various things that you can include in them.
