Live Off Rents Podcast:

Financial Independence with Real Estate

Day jobs are overrated. Learn how to replace your 9-5 income with rental income!

No Jargon or Fluff. A Podcast of Quick Bites!

Every week, Deni & Brian broadcast a live podcast & videocast via the SparkRental Facebook page. Completely free, and interactive — we take questions as we go!

We aim to pack a ton of information in short, 10-20 minute episodes. From the absolute basics like finding deals and calculating rental cash flow to more advanced topics like asset protection, we’ve got you covered.

And while our focus is real estate investing and property management, we always keep the bigger picture in mind: building enough passive income to cover your living expenses. In other words, financial independence.

Happy listening!

financial freedom rental propertiesIs This Podcast for You?

If you don’t want to work forever, it’s for you.

At SparkRental, we’re all about helping you replace your day job income with passive income from investments. Build enough investment income, and your day job becomes optional. You can quit to spend more time with your family, choose a career you’re more passionate about, travel, volunteer full-time.

Or you can keep working your current job if you love it, and build even more wealth.

While we tend to focus on building passive income through rental properties, we know that financial independence and/or retiring early FIRE — works best with diverse income streams. So yes, we talk about finding motivated sellers, tools like free rental income calculators, finding rental property loans, and property management tips & tricks. But we also explore wider FIRE issues like savings rate, safe withdrawal rates, and how the FIRE lifestyle can save you money in surprising ways.

Most of all, we want to help you think differently about your money, and about lifestyle design: creating your own personal ideal life. Real estate is merely a means to that end!
