#264: Converting Distressed Exterior Corridor Hotels Into Best In-Class, Award Winning Hotel Properties – with Justin Ford
Justin specializes in hotels, motels, inns, and lodges, in addition to commercial and multifamily properties. In addition to his real estate investments, he has published, edited and written for over a dozen international investment newsletters. He launched the US version of the Fleet Street Letter, the oldest continuously published newsletter in the English Language. One of his employees was a young Porter Stansberry. Justin is the founder of Seeds of Wealth, a program for getting children to adopt good money habits from an early age. He is the editor of the Seeds of Wealth Quarterly Investment Update Bulletin.
His investment approach to real estate can be summarized as follows: 1) I only buy income-producing properties at cash-flow prices; 2) I adequately capitalize each property. 3) I buy at or below market value. 4) I follow cash-flow fundamentals to avoid bubble markets. 5) I finance conservatively, preferring fixed-rate loans; 6) I choose our tenants as carefully as we choose our properties.
