BiggerPockets Podcast 393: Campus Maintenance Man to $10M in Real Estate Owned with Rick Jarman

published 1 month ago by BiggerPockets.com : Joshua Dorkin and Brandon Turner

Real estate investing... old school!   Rick Jarman (@realestateoldschool on Instagram) joins us today to share some of his hard-won wisdom from 44+ years as a flipper and landlord in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. And it's quite the journey, from cabinet maker and campus maintenance man to cigar-puffing 64-year-old social media influencer!   In this episode you'll hear tales of up markets, down markets, losing it all, getting it all back... and a tornado that wiped out 20 of Rick's 100+ rental houses. He also takes us through his rules for tenant screening, explains why he favors 15-year mortgages, and paints a picture of what it's like to self-manage such a large portfolio of single family homes (with a team, of course).   Give Rick a follow, and if you know someone who'd make a great guest on the BiggerPockets Real Estate Podcast send them over to biggerpockets.com/guest where they can apply to appear on the show.   Listen on BiggerPockets
