407: 8 Rentals in 8 Years and Unlocking MASSIVE Tax Breaks with One Career Move
Think it might be too late for you to enjoy the spoils of real estate investing? Well, you’d be wrong! Regardless of age, background, or financial circumstances, it’s never too late to switch careers and become a real estate investor. Just ask today’s guest!
In this edition of the BiggerPockets Money podcast, we’re joined by Evan Miller, who was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed US Air Force cadet when he first took an interest in real estate. It wasn’t long before his childhood dream of becoming a pilot was ousted by the entrepreneurial pull of building his own real estate empire. Although his journey included a stint in intelligence and a pit stop as a certified financial planner, Evan has managed to create a portfolio of eight properties over the last eight years.
In today’s episode, Evan shares his entire story from start to finish, including his frugal upbringing, his time at the academy, and his journey towards becoming a full-time real estate investor. As always, our trusted hosts Mindy and Scott are along for the ride. Tune in as we demystify a handful of money-related topics—qualifying for real estate professional status (REPS) and its enormous tax benefits, finding exclusive deals through assumable loans, and flipping houses for a profit—even in a bad housing market!
