Passive Investing Through Raw Land Deals

Guest: Mark Podolsky, Real Estate Investor and Author

Mark Podolsky used to fear Fridays every week as an investment banker because he knew Monday would come around again too soon. He learned from a new employee about his side hustle of buying parcels of land at tax deed auctions and flipping them online with 300% returns. Mark took $3,000 of car repair savings, bought 10 lots and sold them for $1200 each, he was hooked and has been buying and selling raw land full time since 2001.

Now having completed over 5,000 land deals Mark’s company, Frontier Equity Properties, has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. He is also the author of Dirt Rich, the ultimate guide to helping you build a passive income model in raw land investing.

Mark’s passion for investing in land, for creating wealth efficiently and for helping other people develop their inner geeky entrepreneur has led him to do two things he never expected to do in life.

You will learn about: – Ins and outs of tax deed deals – Raw land market insights, investing and its challenges – Concepts of the tax deed auctions investing model – The raw land buying process and financials
