$400,000/Year From One Unique Rental Property

$400,000/Year From One Unique Rental Property

Want BIG cash flow numbers? How about $400K/year net operating cash flow? Would that be enough to set you financially free? For Amanda and David Fornelli, this is reality, and it’s all thanks to one very unique rental property investment. And even though these numbers are massive, Amanda and David aren’t that removed from being real estate rookies. Just five years ago, they didnI h’t own any rental properties and were W2 workers just looking for a way to make some extra income.

After finding themselves in a real estate investing program, this power couple began flipping any house they could get their hands on in Southern California. Within three months, David had made twice as much from flips as he did at his day job, so he quit, and the rest is history. Now, they’re full-time investors, still flipping houses, but ALSO running a multimillion-dollar boutique hotel that’s making them hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in profit.

In today’s episode, Amanda and David talk about leaving their jobs to flip houses full time, how they slowly realized that short-term rentals beat the short-term profits of house flipping, why they’re still investing in high-priced Southern California, and the massive net operating cash flow they’re making off their very first commercial real estate investment—a small, but very profitable boutique hotel.
