Real estate investing has worked throughout history. It works incredibly well in the markets Jason Hartman recommends. But there's one thing that could derail it (and everything else for that matter), and it's a worldwide phenomenon.

Jason explains what's going on with the population of the world, and why it's a trend worth worrying about.

Key Takeaways:

[1:55] A declining population puts markets at risk

[6:32] For the first time in a long time, the life expectancy for Americans decreased

[8:43] We are thinning out our population deliberately for the first time in human history

[15:03] How our society is destroying families

[19:35] China is now suffering due to population timebomb

[24:47] Watching old movies and TV shows will show you the shift in society

[32:05] Japan's biggest problem isn't what economists tend to focus on

[37:50] What this all means for real estate investors

The future of real estate and the future of renters looks pretty good. But that doesn't mean you can just buy and forget your investments, you still have to manage them. Jason Hartman recently did some reading on American's personal finance education and habits, and came away disillusioned.

Listen in as Jason goes over some important things about personal finance, and why you want to be a dairy farmer, not a cattle rancher.

Key Takeaways:

[4:00] Used cars have actually APPRECIATED lately

[7:26] Only about 50% of states require high schoolers to learn about personal finance

[10:39] About 80% of millionaires inherited nothing, and 27% of them never earned $100,000 in a year

[13:55] We need to delay gratification, but give ourselves some rewards along the way

[18:21] Are you a cattle rancher or dairy farmer?

Obviously, 2020 was a rough ride for most businesses, particularly those included in the travel industry. Eric Moeller, CEO & Co-Founder of STR Legends, gives us a peek into his business through 2020 in the Short Term Rental market. STRs aren't just about the real estate business but also hospitality. Airbnb made some massive decisions to cater to the guests' needs and not so much their partners in business, the hosts. These hospitality decisions shifted how STRs had to operate to maintain high occupancy.

Key Takeaways:

[2:20] In one year, the industry collapsed, there was speculation of AirBnB collapsing, and now a year later, the business model has changed, specifically the length of stay. 

[3:30] The urban markets have collapsed since COVID-19.

[5:00] Have the operators given cuts for longer stays?

[6:21] "30 Day Stays"

[9:55] "Home Instead of Home"

[12:30] Markets outside of major cities are doing 98% occupancy.

[13:15] Tiny home experiential markets, for the 30 Day Stay

[16:10] AirBnB decisions were being made to prop up their IPO rather than worry about their hosts.

[23:00] Even Google is trying to get into the short term rental market. 

[25:20] Airbnb is a great place for building your business compared to other OTAs (online travel agency)
