On September 12, 2012 I loaded my first video on YouTube. It was a simple, two minute video promoting our real estate joint venture partnerships. You might say that since that time, I have become somewhat of a machine. We have since produced a total of 494 videos  that have been viewed 130 886 times as of this writing with 845 subscribers. In the last month alone, over 534 hours of video has been watched on my YouTube channel.

Now, am I sharing this to brag?  Well, maybe a little.  Truthfully, I am more blown away by those numbers. You see, we all tend to be our own biggest critics. So even though I try to deliver high quality value and content in each video to give you a takeaway that you can use in your own investing career, I am truly humbled by those numbers, and grateful you get so much value from my channel.

That is the reason why I chose to write this post. You see, I go through my videos from time to time. I want to know which videos have made an impact, where our viewers are most engaged, and what type of content they need the most. I do that so I can create more videos that address those needs, those questions, and the comments made by the viewers. Also, as much as I would love for you to watch all 494 videos on my channel, that can be a daunting task and use up a ton of your time, time you can spend building your real estate portfolio. So here are the top ten best videos from my YouTube Channel.

Number 10:

Ugliest House Transforms Into A Gorgeous Home

[embedyt] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpuw3TXySXQ[/embedyt]

This video has been watched 1744 times and is the final video in a series of one of the ugliest houses I ever flipped. The transformation is amazing and this house sold fast to a first time home buyer. You also get to see me almost get buried under an armoire avalanche. Try not to laugh too hard at my expense.

Biggest House Flipping Mistake

This is the first of two videos I did on this subject. You see, real estate investing is a numbers game. If you know your numbers, and stick to your numbers, you will succeed. The problem is, too many people either don’t know their numbers, or they don’t follow the simple formula that I lay out in this video and as a result they lose money. Watch this video and learn my formula for buying and flipping houses properly.

I often have people ask me how they can invest in real estate without using their own cash or credit. When I started in my early twenties as a guitar teacher earning $10 000 a year I knew I needed to figure out a way to invest in real estate without using cash or credit as I had no cash or credit at the time. Watch this video and learn my eight favorite ways to invest in real estate without using any of my own cash or credit.
