We are excited to have John Schaub a legend in the real estate industry as our lead-off keynote instructor. John Schaub has survived and prospered during four recessions, five tax law changes and interest rates ranging from 4-16% in his 35 + years as a real estate investor. Through his writing and teachings he has assisted more than 100,000 real estate enthusiasts on their way to successful investing.
John recommends buying better, well-located houses rather than cheaper houses and other management-intensive properties. Better houses are more profitable and far less trouble. He advocates paying off debt, owning properties free and clear, and renting only to long term, high quality tenants.
John buys, sells and manages his own properties, He provides quality housing at fair prices for working families in his community. John will be our lead-off this year’s Convention by conducting a full 3 hour workshop on teaching various parts of his systems for buying, financing, managing and selling rental property. Attendees will learn some of his strategies for how to identify the best investment property in their town, how to buy it at below-market prices, and how to negotiate terms that guarantee a profit,
John also invests his time helping those who cannot afford to buy a home through conventional sources through his work with Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller Center for Housing. John has served as the chair of the International Board of the Fuller Center for Housing and served for more than 20 years on the board of Sarasota Habitat and 7 years on Habitat’s International Board.

He is a 2000 hour instrument-rated pilot, who has owned and flies his own plane. He enjoys skiing and sailing.

Personal Note from John: “The Convention theme this year, Make MORE, Do Less!” is exactly what I teach about. I teach investors to keep their investment life as simple as possible, which actually allows them to make more money. Many investors over complicate things. Keeping it simple improves your quality of life and gives you the time to continue to improve.”

John Hyre is a nationally-known attorney who speaks frequently on the taxation of real estate and self-directed IRA’s. According to our surveys, his information and style of teaching was most appreciated at last year’s Convention’s and we are thrilled that he has agreed to speak again. During this year’s Convention, we specifically have asked John to address the New Tax Laws, and how landlords can take full advantage of them.
John shall present on how the new tax law massively favors real estate investors. He will focus on the “Pass Thru Deduction” (Read: 30% off on taxes for most landlords), new corporate tax rates (Read: Works like an IRA with less savings but fewer rules), and how to write off 15% of each new rental property. You read correctly: The new law allows you to write off roughly 15% of each rental acquired on or after September 27, 2017. we’ll discuss!
John will also be leading an after hours round table discussion where he will make himself available to answer all your questions regarding the new tax laws and he won’t be charging his normal rate of $400 an hour. He will be sharing with us what we need to know, how we need to prepare moving forward, including warnings and how to best structure your rental business to maximize your tax savings. Plus he will cover why pay taxes at all? He will discuss IRA’s, HSA’s and HRA’s and discuss what your friendly neighborhood tax attorney has been doing in his 401k. Big fun! If you own rental property, you will not want to miss his highly informative sessions.
Personal Note from Al: “The landlord profession is overdue for a revolution. The business model of generating rental income to cover your underlying payments by only charging rent is just…. not sufficient. My mission is to construct and share an additional business model that would allow landlords to create enough non-traditional rental income to cover your payments, and allow the traditional rent to be mere icing on the cake. Never again will you be able to say you do not have enough cash flow!”
