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!

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.

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.
