This Week on The Art of Passive Income...
Mark and Scott talk with Gene Guarino—CEO, President, and Founder of
Gene is the first guest on our show to talk about Senior Assisted Housing. With over 30 years of experience in real estate investing and business, his focus today is investing in the mega-trend of Senior Assisted Living.
Join us as Gene breaks down his business model, including the demographics and the economics showing us that demand is high and the opportunity to make long-term wealth is real!
Gene explains, we are in the middle of the Silver Tsunami. There are 77 million baby boomers and people living longer than ever, 4,000 people a day are turning 85 years old. That’s the fastest-growing demographic in the country, and the target.
Gene also goes over the numbers showing us the potential earnings per home and analyzes the two aspects of this business:
  • The real estate side—Where you own and lease the home. You have low impact tenants with a long-term lease for twice the market rent.
  • The business side—The care side is where you get the huge returns because it requires more work. 
This business has these 4 key components on its side:
  • Demographics
  • Economics
  • Low competition
  • Demand
But what are the negatives and do they outweigh the positives?
LISTEN IN as Gene delves into all aspects of this business!

In This Week's Round Table...
Mark is joined by:

  • Tate Litchfield
  • Scott Todd
This week we are going deep into managing our expectations. There is no time limit when it comes to land… it’s not a one size fits all business. You shouldn’t base your success on someone else’s progress or timeframe. As long as you keep moving forward steadily, you will move the needle at any pace you set!
The group gives great advice on:
  • Keeping your pace slow and steady
  • Why you shouldn’t set deadlines
  • What if a property is slow to sell?
There’s no race to get to the finish line, some people put deadlines on the sale side and if it doesn’t sell by that time they chalk it up as bad land and wholesale it, when in fact all it needs are some minor adjustments. Find out where you can make adjustments to appease the market.
It all starts with you and your actions—If you mail, you will buy land. If you market, you will sell land. If you do nothing, you will get nothing.
Also, find out how Scott answered this question from Mark: From a mindset perspective, how would you hack someone’s expectations?
Negotiating for a higher down payment—Scott breaks down the numbers on a recent terms sale and how he negotiated for a higher down to recoup most of his money. Should you always try to get a higher down payment and how far should you push that envelope?
Listen in for all the details. And also, there’s a new coach in town, find out who just signed on the be part of our coaching team! Plus, today’s post Let Freedom Ring chat….. Awkward.
