Construindo um Portfólio de $1.8M ao Terceirizar suas “Fraquezas”

We’ve got good news for you! You DON’T have to rush full-steam ahead, buying every property that crosses your path to reach financial freedom. That’s right, instead of buying dozens of units a year, you can buy a dozen units within a couple of decades, taking the slow, steady path to building wealth instead of ferociously racing to rack up as many rentals as possible.While it may sound like every real estate investor is constantly on a buying spree, this is far from the truth. Investors like Andy Gil have been able to build seven-figure real estate portfolios without sacrificing time with family or infringing on their morals to make more money. Far from it, actually; Andy is outwardly trying to make it easier for often neglected renters to find a safe place to stay.Through the past two decades, Andy has been building his rental property portfolio up to the twelve units it is today. He never thought he would be the person to buy a house, let alone own a rental portfolio. Still, thanks to his differences that make him a superhero in aspects most investors would dread, he’s built serious wealth without sacrificing what’s important. In this episode, you’ll hear precisely how Andy did it, his “T-Rex” policy that entices renters, outsourcing your weaknesses, and using your differences to build wealth. David:This is the BiggerPockets Podcast show 803. Andy:I’ve been doing that for 20 years, but I didn’t know I was doing that. I was always doing it for clients. I’ve always like, if you’re going to do a renovation, it has to make sense. If you’re going to renovate something, people are either doing it emotionally or as to keep pace with inflation. So anytime you’re doing as a builder, you have, things have to be, they have to appraise in order to be funded. David:What’s going on everyone? It’s David Greene, your host of the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast. Here today with my co-host Rob Abasolo, looking even more handsome than usual. If you guys are not following on YouTube right now, you are missing out. Or maybe you’re not. The distraction might be so great, it’s going to stop you from getting your key performance indicators done. So maybe listening on Apple Podcast or Spotify is going to be better for your productivity.Today’s show, fantastic. We get into it with Andy Gil, who is a real estate investor who has slowly built a portfolio based off his strengths, not his weaknesses, at a pace that he’s comfortable with and has overcome some challenges that he had early in life and is very open and authentic about sharing what those were like that many of you listening may relate to. So before we get into this any further, I’d just like all of you to consider leaving us a comment on YouTube and letting us know if you can relate to anything that Andy, Rob or I shared about personal struggles we have that has stopped us from being successful in business and how we overcame them. Trust me, you are not the only person.Rob, what do you think that investors are going to find most valuable about today’s show? Rob:Honestly, I think probably that it’s okay to be weak. It’s actually kind of fun to figure out your weaknesses. I think a lot of people are ashamed of the things that they’re not good at, and so they’re scared to really tell people about their weaknesses and stuff. But we kind of unpack this a little bit with Andy and really talk about, once you figure out those weaknesses, it’s actually becomes a strength because you can start delegating them out and outsourcing it to people that are better than you at those things. And I really feel like that’s when you really hit the turning point in your business. So we get into that quite a bit. We talk about the ADHD component of our brains, me and Andy’s, and yeah, I don’t know. I feel like we haven’t really ever gotten deep like that before, or not at least in a long while. So I really enjoyed this conversation with Andy. He is a rare mind and I love it. David:Before we get to Andy, today’s quick tip is if you’re procrastinating doing something that you hate, try body doubling. Rob, what is body doubling? Rob:It’s basically when you ask someone to sit in the same room with you as you do something that you don’t like, so that you feel supported doing the thing that you hate. David:That’s a very good definition. Let’s get to Andy. Andy Gil, welcome to the BiggerPockets Podcast. A quick review of your portfolio. You’ve been investing for 20 years, have done 10 deals and currently own 12 units all in eastern Connecticut. You have a strict no T. rex policy for your tenants, and you seem like a fascinating individual that I’m interested to interview here. So tell us about this. How is that no T. rex policy working for you? Andy:That’s funny that that came up first. Yeah, well, the no T.rex policy, well, first, I’ll just tell you, T.rexes have horrible gas. And not only that, they’re incredibly rude, which is why we don’t allow them. But when I was listing the units, I dug into marketplace and hated the way that people were presenting themselves as landlords, as like, “I’ll only reply if don’t…” Et cetera. And so I went to ChatGPT thinking I could… I was looking to curate a specific clientele or a specific group of people for these units. And I really like dogs, and I think that people that take… I found that people take very good care of their dogs also are pretty, like they’re going to be good tenants. They’re able to curate the life that they want. So ChatGPT came up with this no T. rex policy after several, and it’s working out pretty good. No T. rexes have shown up. David:Okay, wait a minute. ChatGPT came up for the idea of not allowing T. rexes in your home? Andy:It sure did. Yeah, I’m not that creative. David:Oh, that scares me that ChatGPT not only can be practical, but it can also be creative as well. Rob:Yeah, because you were skeptical. You’re like, “Oh, no, it’s not that good.” And then I was like, “Hold on, let me just write a BiggerPockets intro really fast using ChatGPT.” And then you’re like, “Oh, it can’t be good.” And then I read it and you were like, “Wow, that sounds just like us.” And I was like, “I know. It’s weird.” Andy:Yeah, it is. It’s creepy. Yeah, ChatGPT. But if you use it as a tool and just kind of keep on pushing, you’ll get to your own authentic voice, which is scary, right? David:It worked in your case. So basically what happened is you came up with a way of advertising your units to tenants in a way that was less threatening, less demanding, not, “No this, no that.” I always see those posts where they put exclamation points, “Absolutely no smoking, parties, dogs, fun, cooking.” Whatever the case would be. And I think landlords can get away with that because in general, the limited supply in both housing to buy and housing to live in puts the power in the hands of the landlord. Of course, depending on the state, the power can ship back into the hands of the tenant depending on what the laws are like. But if you’ve started the relationship off by kind of jerking them around that way, you’re increasing your likelihood they’re going to do the same thing back to you when they get the power. Was that kind of what was behind your thought process for why you wanted to show yourself differently? Andy:I wanted to show up as my authentic self. We’re a family business and I wanted to… I know that if you… I mean, a couple things. I know that if I show my real self to people, then they’re more likely to share their actual situations. And so we also wanted to be able to, it’s not…
