James Wachob has scaled his investing business in Memphis Tennessee to having 78 team members and is rehabbing well over 200 houses a year, along with doing new construction. His investing model is around providing turnkey rentals as well as doing some traditional wholesale deals and flips. On the turnkey & property management side, his company manages over 1700 rental units for some 500+ investors. He has built quite a large operation and there is a lot to be learned from what he has to say regardless of if you are a beginning investor or an experienced investor looking to scale your real estate investing business to the next level.

Key Takeaways

  1. Focus on one area of real estate investing and take action. Beginners should avoid shiny object syndrome and taking on too many ways to invest at one time.
  2. Place a dollar figure on one hour of work value for yourself, then, when you can afford it, hire-off to someone else everything that isn't worth your hourly rate.
  3. Build that team because that team is the only thing which will make you scale!
