Passive Real Estate Cashflow Using Multifamily Syndication with Lane Kawaoka

March 2, 2021

Welcome back everybody to the AJ Osborne Podcast! I’m your host, AJ Osborne.

I have another amazing guest lined up for you all today - the man himself Lane Kawaoka.

Lane began like most of us do - he had a secure job working as a railroad engineer, he had a house, he was building his life. Being gone so much for work though, Lane decided to start renting out his house. One thing after another happened and before he knew it, he had 11 single family doors across the country. The thing was, once Lane realized the power that real estate had and the future that it could offer him, he decided investing in real estate was going to provide a much more rewarding and enjoyable future.

After dabbling in single family for a while, Lane realized how management intensive single family was, and how much more difficult it would be if he were to scale simply in the single family home asset class. This was even the case if he continued buying turn key investments (more on this in the episode).

Enter diversification and scaling both horizontally and vertically. This is exactly what Lane did. Now, Lane syndicates multifamily deals.

We talk about scaling, choosing the right investment strategy, the exact metric he uses to analyze a market for multifamily. We talk development, how to maximize cashflow while being able to leverage your property and what his ideal loan to value ratio is. Lane even shares the exact markets that he’s looking at currently to find some sweet multifamily deals.

This is just a peak at everything we cover in today’s episode. If you’re interested in investing in multifamily, this is a podcast you won’t want to miss.
