Full Time Help / Jack: $7500 Per Month

So, when it comes to everything…these are two big main takeaways that I have learned throughout all of my experiences saving and investing, it just comes down to this:

First, I only view my income as not how much I make, but instead – how much that money makes ME.

For example, if I earn $10,000…I don’t see that as $10,000…instead, I’d see that as $50 per month in passive income when I invest that money into buying a rental property at a 6% return. By that logic, if I’m able to invest $50,000…that’ll cover the basic grocery bill for pretty much the rest of my life. If I can get $350,000 invested in a rental property…that’s enough passive income to cover a 1 bedroom apartment in Los Angeles in a good area. And at $1 million invested…that’ll replace the average annual salary from most full time employees. I challenge you to start thinking the same way, as well…this will make the aspects of saving and investing so much easier, and over time – you can replace all of your expenses by having your money do all the work for you.

Second, beyond the essentials…I only try to buy things that I can put to work that will make more money, or can be seen as an investment.

For example, I consider the computer that I’m editing on right now to be a good use of money, that helps expedite the work I do. Or, buying an extra camera to film on so I could get a second angle for The Graham Stephan Show…or, paying extra to create a brick veneer for the background of my videos so they’re more visually appealing…or, even something like this house that I bought, I find it much more relaxing to work outside and come up with new content – and when I feel more at ease, I tend to produce better quality. If you can find a way to coordinate your expenses around things that will help INCREASE your productivity or income, it can be absolutely worth it.

Weekly Housing Market Monitor: What’s Happening in the Housing Market?


Every week, NAR Research releases the Weekly Housing Market Monitor, tracking the state of the housing market and related industries in this unprecedented time.

Some highlights from the latest report:

Contract Signings and Pending Contracts

  • The housing market continues to recover strongly, fueled by low mortgage rates. Contract signings during the past four weeks (ending September 13) were up 23% from one year ago, a strong pace despite the slight decline from last week’s pace (26%) as we enter the fall season.
  • In the past four weeks (ending September 13), there were 9 new pending contracts for every 10 new listings, a slower rate than the 9.9 ratio through July 5.

Days on Market and List Price

  • Properties sold more quickly in the past four weeks (ending September 13), with the median days on market at 22 days, a slight increase compared to the prior four weeks when it was at 16 days, in part due to the seasonal slowdown.  This is far below the 38 median days on the market about one year ago.

  • On average, properties also sold at 97% of the list price in the past four weeks (ending September 13), a slight dip from the 98% ratio in the prior four-week period.

Home Price Growth in Metro Areas

  • Based on preliminary information of sales transactions during the four weeks ending September 13, the median existing homes sales prices in 40 areas tracked by NAR were up over 5% in 37 metro areas, with the strongest growth in the Bridgeport, CT, and Atlantic City. Prices rose year-over-year except in Ann Arbor, Michigan. NAR releases the official price figures on a quarterly basis.
Bar chart: Year-Over-Year Percent Change in Median Existing-Home Sales Price in the Four Weeks Ending September 13, 2020

Cost of Lumber Rising

Demand for lumber for both residential and commercial construction has pushed up lumber prices. The producer price index for softwood lumber was up 45% in July from one year ago.

  • According to the National Association of Homebuilders, lumber costs for the average single-family home have climbed more than 130% since April 2020.
  • This has resulted in an increase of more than $16,000 in the price of a new single-family home and $6,107 for a multifamily home.

Open Houses

  • Public interest in open houses dropped 49% last week compared to a year earlier. However, interest for open houses has increased significantly since the beginning of April (95%). At the local level, interest remains strong in Montana, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

https://www.cnbc.com/2020/06/02/wells-fargo-cuts-back-from-making-loans-to-independent-car-dealerships.html

FIRST: It was found that US Companies issued more than $60 BILLION worth of stock in May, the BIGGEST amount EVER – as prices rallied from a potential recovery.
Companies sell off shares like this to raise money NOW, and they want to lock in the current rally JUST IN CASE the market drops back down…so, even though the headline is alarming, it makes sense. Companies get more more cash on hand to weather a downturn, they get to sell while people are buying…and even though we COULD see a stock market drop in the future, it doesn’t guarantee prices will go down from here.

SECOND: Wells Fargo and the recent announcement that they’ll NO LONGER be issuing Auto Loans for independent car dealerships.
It’s a smart move for Wells Fargo, but a BAD sign that the used auto industry is about to take an even deeper hit, and most likely for the foreseeable future…getting a loan is going to become a lot more challenging for everyone.

THIRD: Millionaires plan to reduce their spending
I think it’s reasonable that, during tough times…most people reduce spending and postpone purchases. It’s not surprising, either, that many of them think their assets will be the same or HIGHER in the next 6 months.

FOURTH: Nearly two-thirds of millionaires said that it would take the market at least a year to recover back to its previous all time high.
I interpret this as rather optimistic that the market would rebound so quickly. And while it says that they “only plan to put about a third of their money into stocks” – that’s actually a significant amount of money, with the MAJORITY of millionaires ADDING to their stock position during the decline.

FIFTH: CFO’s believe the DOW will fall another 20% down to 19,000
Any rational, NUMBERS DRIVEN person can look at the stock market – compare it’s relative value of where it was, versus where it is now…make the connection with our current economic environment, which is terrible…and then make the conclusion, that we shouldn’t be trading at these levels right now…and they would be right! BUT…there is an element to the market that is totally irrational, money HAS shifted to companies with a strong online presence, and instead of trying to go against it – it’s better to be cautious and invest long term.

SIXTH: Real estate saw the biggest monthly gain in 2 years
HOWEVER…the DECLINE would potentially come once more sellers begin to list their homes for sale…which, could very well happen in hard hit tourism cities like Miami and Florida. And, we could see a drop in sales prices once the reality sinks in that jobs might not come back as quickly as we expect. I’ve mentioned this in a video before, but real estate very much lags the rest of the market, and it’ll likely take us 6 months to see what truly ends up happening TODAY…so, even though there is some optimism here, it’s something to keep a close eye on.

Evicting Tenants – My Thoughts

A new study shows that up to 23 million tenants are at risk of eviction in the coming months – here are my thoughts, and what can be done about it. Enjoy! Add me on Instagram: GPStephan

Across the United States, Real Estate Eviction Freezes are slowly beginning to expire – meaning, landlords can begin issuing eviction notices for tenants who haven’t been paying their rent. Now, on the one hand – missed rental payments like this are NOT forgiven, and just because a tenant can’t be evicted, doesn’t mean that they DON’T owe rent…but, on the other hand, if tenants didn’t have the money to pay rent – why would they, all of a sudden, have the money to pay when the eviction freeze is lifted?

Unfortunately, though – there’s no solution where EVERYONE wins, and it’s going to be difficult for everyone involved. So, that just leaves us with a few options: one, if you’re a tenant: try working out a deal with your landlord. I’ll tell every landlord the same thing: evictions are a last case resort, and while there ARE cases where eviction is absolutely necessary: it should NOT be the main focus.

Instead, as a Landlord – it’s MUCH better, and CHEAPER, to work out a deal where your tenant can continue living in the property, and get on a payment plan to make up lost rent, than proceed forward with an eviction. Logistically, if the eviction freeze is lifted and landlords all rush to get evictions out – the eviction process is likely to take awhile. Courts will be backed up, and unless they find a way to expedite all the claims – it could take several more MONTHS to from start to finish to go through an eviction.

Now, I also get it – owning a rental property is a business, and when you have a client not paying you for your service, you’ll need to demand paying or cut ties. But, this is a unique circumstance where a BETTER outcome for EVERYONE is typically in working out a payment plan and KEEPING the tenant, or working out a reduced rent in order for the tenant to continue paying and living in the property…usually, that’s way cheaper than cleaning up the unit and then waiting for a new tenant to move in.

I also HIGHLY recommend another alternative to evictions – and that would be “Cash for Keys.” This is a practice in which the landlord will pay the tenant to vacate the property by a certain date, and this does a few things – the landlord can get a tenant out faster, can re-rent the unit faster, and doesn’t miss out on lost rent – and, some of those savings are passed on to the tenant in exchange for leaving.

In both situations – whether it be a cash for keys, or working out a payment plan – both sides work together and should HOPEFULLY come to a resolution where everyone is happy. If that doesn’t happen, and there’s a MASS wave of evictions – then the real estate market could be headed towards some serious trouble, not to mention – all the people that’ll be forced out of their homes.

Until then – it’s up to us to do the best we can to work together to find a happy middle ground – and I have a feeling, payment plans, reduced rent, or a cash for keys option would be WAY less expensive and time consuming than waiting for an eviction in the next few months.

How Much Money You Should SPEND (By EVERY AGE)

Here is how much you should spend by every age, the 50 / 30 / 20 budget rule, and the best strategies to save money and invest to build wealth – enjoy! Add me on Instagram: GPStephan

Now, when it comes to SUCCESSFULLY managing your money and growing your wealth so you’re not living paycheck to paycheck, this is probably the most widely used RULE OF THUMB out there: It’s called the 50 / 30 / 20 Rule. You take your AFTER TAX INCOME and divide that income up as follows:

50% of your income should be spent on your NEEDS – or, in other words, things you absolutely HAVE TO HAVE.

30% of your income should be spent on your WANTS – these are things that you don’t NEED to have, but they’re NICE to have:

20% should be spent on savings, investing, debt repayment, and so on.

HOWEVER – here are my thoughts:

I personally believe the best budget and way to save money is using the 50 / 10 / 40 approach:

20% SPENT ON HOUSING
Most experts are quick to suggest that housing your housing payment shouldn’t exceed 1/3rd of your income. Although I’d MUCH rather suggest that you spend – AT MOST – 25% of your income on housing, and – if at all possible – aim to spend more like 20%, or as little as you possibly can.

10% TRANSPORTATION
The conventional wisdom is that your TOTAL cost of transpiration shouldn’t exceed 15% of your income, and the total PRICE you pay for a car shouldn’t exceed 35% of your annual salary. INSTEAD, I much prefer the DAVE RAMSEY approach when it comes to how much money to spend on transportation: He recommends that your transportation cost NOT EXCEED 10% of your annual income, you should ONLY buy USED cars until you have a net worth over $1 million dollars, and I would go so far as to say the value of the car you buy should be LESS than 25% of your annual income.

10% FOOD or $600/MO – whatever is less
That’s why I believe a 10% food budget is OKAY when that adds up to less than $500 per month…but, once you start making more money, your food budget doesn’t need to go up alongside your income.

5% Health Insurance
Health insurance can easily be 5% of your income…or, about $200-$500 per month for a single person depending on your age, location, and health insurance provider. It’s hard to put a “maximum amount” to spend here because you shouldn’t be cheap with your health…but, we’ll just round this off to 5% to be on the safe side.

3% Utilities – $500 or LESS
Generally, for most, you’re looking at around $50 – $250 per month – again, depending on your location and how hot or cold you like to keep your house. Or if you do laundry during off peak electrical hours.

10% FUN / ENTERTAINMENT OR WHATEVER
I think it’s ABSOLUTELY reasonable that 10% of your income can be spent, without thinking about it, on whatever fun purchases you want to make, as long as this is budgeted for. It IS important that you have some money left over just to splurge, and spending 10% is just enough to “get it out of your system” without getting carried away.

42% SAVINGS
The first thing I would do is save up a 6 month safety fund, in cash, held within a high interest savings account.

But once you’ve done that, your remaining savings should go towards maxing your your 401K up to your employer contribution limit.

After that, the next $6000 you invest should go towards maxing out your Roth IRA.

From there, any money you have left over should go towards a TAXABLE INVESTMENT account or some other type of investment that will grow over time.

At a 42% savings rate…you’d EASILY be able to retire in just about 20 years from the 4% rule like I mentioned earlier…meaning, if you start doing this NOW at 20 years old…by the time you’re 40…you will be nearly ready to retire, if you want to.

Max Maxwell | The Deed Said What?!? | Wholesaling Real Estate

Date: 2020-08-14 21:50:30

×

Upon my return from Mexico, Tammy finds an interesting clause in a deed to a property I’m looking to buy with wording from 1938 limiting the sale of the property to caucasians only! You have to see it to believe it. Mind you this was before 1968 and the civil rights era but still hard to believe clauses like this existed, limiting African Americans from obtaining property.
Then I get into it with my brother about the difference between working to keep your job and working until the final product is complete.
Finally we visit a commercial property and find out why the seller is interested in moving it…

First, we need to talk about SoftBank – because this could, in theory, explain SOME of the recent run up in the stock market – and then, the subsequent, quick decline.

For anyone who’s not aware, Softbank is an investment conglomerate and holding company worth somewhere around $113 BILLION DOLLARS…and lately, they seem to be the center of a lot of controversy. An article just published by CNN explains how SoftBank could be the NASDAQ “whale” that has the power to manipulate the entire market – and here’s how that works.

SoftBank invested $4 BILLION DOLLARS into certain tech companies through what’s known as a call option – this means SoftBank pays a “Small Fee” for the RIGHT to buy a certain stock, at a certain price, by a certain date. When SoftBank invests $4 BILLION DOLLARS into the market place buying up specific stocks all at once…they have the power to POTENTIALLY MOVE THE ENTIRE MARKET alongside with it, because SOMEONE ELSE needs to buy those 100 stocks to make the transaction. That now gives the theory that – possibly – traders like this have the power to influence and move the market, either up like we’ve seen recently – or down, when they begin to sell.

As far as what you can do about it – HONESTLY, I don’t see this as a big deal. Drops like this are NORMAL, they’re not causes to panic, and as long as you have a plan to hold your investment LONG TERM – just see these little dips as “flash sales,” buy more – and hold on long term. In the big picture, it doesn’t matter.

BUT, if you’re investing in risky stocks with no knowledge of what you’re investing in, and you’re only buying in because you don’t want to miss out on the hype money train…then yeah, you’re better off selling, and holding out until you have a better grasp of your investments, and this should NOT be a market to gamble money you can’t afford to lose. ONLY invest in stable funds or stocks you REALLY know the fundamentals of, long term – and that’s it, for 99% of you watching. Buy and hold, as they say…

Finally…lets talk BRIEFLY about Tesla NOT getting into the SP500, and now it’s subsequent 35% DROP in a matter of a few days.

Now, here’s the thing – in order to be eligible for SP500 inclusion, a company must hit a few key criteria points, one of which being that they’ve had 4 quarters of profitability – which, TECHNICALLY, Tesla just hit. HOWEVER…just because a stock meets all the criteria of getting into the SP500, doesn’t mean it’s automatically going to be added in.

There is a committee of 9 members that meet every month to decide on who gets added – and who gets removed – from the index, and how they vote which stocks get added or removed isn’t known and isn’t published ahead of time. It’s speculated that Tesla is just too volatile to be added to the index quite yet, and for a stock to swing + or – 35% in a few days, at a hundred billion dollar valuation, isn’t quite something best suited for positioning within an index.

In terms of where we stand today – I’m not too shocked that the markets have fallen so much over these last few days. The stock market has risen nearly every single day for almost 2 weeks straight…there’s no “REAL REASON” for that, and as illogical as the stock market is – just like we can’t question why it’s going up, we can’t reason why it’s going down – it just does what it wants, and it’s up to us to enjoy the ride, have fun watching it – but, at the end of the day, the ONLY thing we can do is consistently buy and hold – that’s it.
