We’re all looking for ways to broaden our investments in a down market. We’d all like to keep profits trending upward despite a pending recession, so what are the options if adding new properties or more fix-and-flips opportunities are harder to find?
In this episode of Accelerated Real Estate Investor with Josh Cantwell, he’s being joined by the Founder of Labrador Lending, Jamie Bateman. Jamie became an active real estate investor in 2010 and specializes in buying and selling mortgage notes. In fact, he created a portfolio of forever passive income by acquiring over 75 mortgage notes with an excess balance of $5 million across 20 states. He’s also the host of the From Adversity to Abundance Podcast in which Josh Cantwell also graced the show a while back.
In this conversation, Jamie walks us through how he broke into this unique field, creates structures to share his profits (and risks) with passive investors, and what makes his strategy so different and allows him to scale and de-risk his portfolio.
