This week’s podcast guest is Josh Stevenson, Real Estate Investor.

Josh started out about 14 years ago and was slowly acquiring properties at the beginning. He eventually partnered with his friend Brent and they put their resources together and really grew their business in northern Ontario. They invested their capital, equity, and skillsets. They still self-manage even though they now own more than 90 doors. They are slowly adding to their team (Josh’s wife, etc.). They built it all without private lenders or JV partners. They did some no-money-down deals with credit unions, vendor takebacks, and more!

Josh also shared some amazing tips on how to work with credit unions, using collateral mortgages, and getting creative with loans and lenders. This has helped him grow and scale by using liens and other ways to build trust with lenders.

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • The importance of staying ahead of the market “explosions”
  • Structuring no money down deals
  • How to find the right partner
  • Self-managing a large portfolio remotely
  • Collaborating with tenants as “anchor persons”
  • Using collateral wisely to scale up
  • More creative tips and tricks of the trade!
