Where Real Estate Investors & Landlords Go for Success

EP356 Why This Finance Cowboy Ignored Dave Ramsay’s Advice About Real Estate Loans With JD Sustar

In the past three years, my guest today has acquired 22 rental properties including 13 single family homes, 7 mobile homes, and 2 short term rentals. 

JD Sustar has also built his brand through social media as the Finance Cowboy and shares his knowledge to help others get their personal finances in order, invest in real estate and reach financial independence.

Today, JD discusses the influence Dave Ramsay had on him early on, and why he’s decided to go beyond Dave’s advice to take on smart debt to acquire real estate.

We’ll also discuss the evolution of his portfolio to include a mobile home park and vacation rentals, and how his family member inspired him to build his thought leadership as the Finance Cowboy.
