Wish you pulled the trigger on your first rental or you had a larger rental portfolio?

Adrian, shares some of the key steps to owning rentals.


As investors we need to anticipate market trends before they happen through data, not emotions, by making calculated decisions being informed, Creating Financial Freedom.

In Adrian’s New Year presentation, right after Proposition 10 had been voted down, he predicted that California would adopt a blanket rent control bill by 2019. Have you heard of AB1482 and the Sacramento City Rent Control ordinance that passed?!  He also stated that interest rates would decrease by Q3-Q4 at a time when interest rates were increasing. Have you seen how low long-term interest rates are?

Adrian will discuss the many upcoming opportunities on the horizon.

That’s why it’s so important to join us for “The Transition Ahead”

Join us on September 11th and learn:


  • Opportunities in a Rent Controlled market
  • Overview and state of the Sacramento residential multifamily market
  • The specifics of the proposed blanket CA Rent Control bill and other legislations

Find out how to take advantage of California’s new “granny flat” law. Knowledge is power…

Greg Nickless is the Housing Policy Analyst for California’s Department of Housing and will discuss ADU units.  Although the concept of an ADU has not changed, the laws and regulations have. You will want to come hear from the experts to see what your options are if an ADU is right for you. The new state law is a big change for homeowners – landlords and we can benefit from these changes, if you know how!

Expect to Learn:

  • What the rules are
  • What permits are required
  • How to get started
  • What is the financial commitment

Did you know that California just made it easier than ever for homeowners to add a second unit? Also known as a granny flat, in-law suite, garage conversion or carriage house, the official name in our state is Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU).

Folks are using ADUs to

  • House an elderly relative
  • House an adult child,
  • House a caregiver for a disabled family member,
  • Rent for additional income, or
  • Live in while renting their primary residence.

Join us on Wednesday February 13, 2019 to find out the ins & outs of mobile home park investing presented by an active investor in this space.

Mobile Home Parks are an alternative asset class commonly known for producing consistent amounts cash flow and a proven wealth builder vehicle for owners, operators and investors. J

Joe began investing in 2002 and since then he has been involved in multiple transactions. During the meltdown, he decided to stop flipping houses and to begin building monthly cash flow by owning and operating mobile home parks. Things were not easy at first, as his first mobile home park deal was a major 141 space REO turn around property purchased at the end of 2008.  After lots of lessons learned…including a potential property rezoning notice from the City was incredible, but he and his partner were able to navigate through turbulent waters safely to shore.  The second community was a seller direct 74 space deal, acquired on December of 2012 a “Turn Key” property that showed a profit immediately.  After streamlining the operations the third 98 space MHP came along, also a seller direct deal and promised a great upside potential acquired on August, 2015.  The fourth deal was seller financed on January 2016 with strategic asset allocation tax strategies. This property is a bit of a “Hybrid” as it has 68 mobile homes, 38 RV Spaces, four single family houses, two duplexes and one commercial building. On November of 2017 the first three properties sold for a premium and Joe was able to 1031 exchange into other MHP’s and Apartment Buildings and RV Parks giving him a true sense of passive income.  Joe is the founder of The OC Investment Club – FIBI ( with 7700+ members.  He often speaks about the asset class at local investment clubs, he was also invited to teach about alternative investing opportunities at a Bruce Norris sponsored event on September 8, 2018.  Joe loves to mountain bike and to play soccer as much as possible.
