Flipping America 510, She Bought a Car Wash

podcast 510 She Bought a Car Wash

Real estate comes in all shapes and sizes. Last time we talked about buying a hotel, today we will talk about buying a car wash. 

Our Guest today, Steff Boldrini, started her investing career when she bought a car wash. That’s pretty cool, but she’s found something else she likes even better. Today she’s going to tell you about it.

Steffany grew up in Brazil, but her family ended up in Silicon Valley. She won awards in sales, worked in start-ups and later was an angel investor in startups. But she prefers real estate. She especially likes commercial real estate and that will be our focus today.

You don’t need me to tell you it’s tough to find good house deals these days. Today’s conversation is going to help all of us step back and look at the broader picture. If you have ever considered commercial investing, or if you’re starting to think about it now, you will want to meet Steff.

Mindset Moment: Sorting out

I was watching the World Series last week, and congrats to the Atlanta Braves for bringing the city their first Major Championship since 1995, the last time the Braves won a world series. While I was watching I started thinking about all the little boys in America who play little league baseball. And how few of them go on to play in middle school or high school. Fewer still will play in high school. About 3-5% of them will play somewhere in college. Half of one percent will be drafted into pro ball. 

Questions from Listeners: 

  • Larry, Atlanta, GA  “I hear ‘your network is your net worth’ all the time. Can you give me some tips on building my network? I have a busy full-time job, a wife and family, and am doing real estate on the side. How can I fit this in?”
  • Celia, Hammond, IN, “I listened to what you said and went out and made offers on three houses. Two of them got accepted! What do I do now? I don’t have the knowledge or ability to fix and flip them, but I think the numbers are right, according to what I’ve been hearing from you. Please tell me what’s next?”
  • Tim, Manchester,NH  Hey “I am about to rent out my property. Iae some minor things I want to fix. However, my realtor is telling me to rent out as is. Should I fix these things, before I get a tenant; i.e rail handle for basement, change outdated chandelier to undated standard light decor, change carpet to wood… just a little confused at the moment.”
  • Karen, Boston, MA “I found your show on iHeart radio, but then downloaded the app. I haven’t found you on the radio here in Boston but I don’t even care. The app is great and allows me to listen to all your previous shows. So here’s my question. I want to buy a couple of rental properties, but they are around $300,000 to buy a modest home that I could rent for maybe $1800 per month. That rent would cover my principal and interest payment and most of the taxes, but that’s it. I think I would have to come out of pocket a bit on these. I have a high paying job and the extra expense isn’t a factor. I don’t even need the income. I just wanted to build equity. Am I thinking about it the wrong way?”
