Stories From People Just Like You
Went From Zero to Four Income Properties in Half A Year
“I was working in software for my day job, but got this wild thought of expanding my portfolio with real estate and short-term rentals. However, I wasn’t really sure where to start and that’s when I came across Land Hacker. I joined the community and started going to live classes and fell in love with what I was learning. After the program I acquired 4 properties in areas we talked about in the program and just last month was able to surpass my job income with over $11,000 in NET profits!”
Permitted 56 Acres to Make $50,000+/month
“We’re a young family with two kids based in the Pacific Northwest and we always wanted to get into real estate, but weren’t sure what direction to go. At first, we thought we wanted a small piece of land to build a glampsite. But thanks to Kai, we found that the Land Hacker method made more sense. We now have 56+ acres at the base of Mt. Rainer, a cash-flowing home, just received permits to build out a dome, and have the potential to add a wedding venue and multiple glampsites. Oh, and we can also lease acreage for agriculture. Our dream shifted from making $2k/month seasonally on a small glampsite, to the potential for 10x or even 20x that with flexibility of multiple income streams. We are so thankful that we connected with Kai and can’t wait to see our vision for Wildin Farm come to life!”
-Stan & Lauren
Young Couple Leaves Apartment to Land Hack 28 Acres
“A year ago we were living in a small apartment inside the city trying to figure a way out of our day jobs. After going through Land Hacker and working with Kai we found a property and purchased it. Today we live on 28 acres in West Virginia fixing up the main home, cabin and building two dome homes. By the end of the year, we’re expecting to create $150k in equity and around $10k-$15k/month in revenues.“
-Cam & Jess
6 Properties in Two Years Making $300k/Year
“I’m in sales and wanted to get into real estate, especially short-term rentals. Before I met Kai, I had already started two properties, but I knew I was missing something. After joining Land Hacker, and working with Kai, I was able to clarify my strategy and now have five properties (soon to be six) 5-star listings. This took me less than a year to implement my plan and I’m on track to make over $300,000 in gross revenues.”

How much money do I need?
I recommend at least $30k before getting started. But I have seen folks start with $10k or less. For this program I like to see students have $50k+ saved up before doing true land hacks. BUT, just because you do not have the funds to start land hacking now, it doesn’t mean building your knowledge, experience and skills have to wait. Money is rarely the limiting factor to most entrepreneur’s successes. Alas, it is an important component.
In the Program we will talk about your different options when it comes to financing and how to set yourself up strategically.
How do I know where to look?
Golden Triangle Method & Batchleads app.
With these two tools you’ll pretty much be able to identify any and all healthy locations in the United States. I have had a number of international students use the Golden Triangle method to great success in other countries as well.
Is Airbnb getting too competitive?
No…and yes. The number of people traveling and seeking out high quality, clean and well-managed spaces still significantly outpaces the actual number of listings. But there are a lot of new entrants into the short-term rental market.
I teach you how to rise above everyone else, how to increase the barriers of entry in your market and make others compete with you. And when necessary, know when to walk away from an over saturated market.
There is always plenty of room when you’re operating at a high-level and have the right property.
How can I manage remotely?
Systems. Systems. Systems.
Managing remotely is doable, but it does require more time and money (doesn’t everything?) up front.
You want to build out protocols for any scenario you can think of and make sure you have a system AND the right team members in place.
At the end of the day, it all comes down to the people on your team and if you have the right people in the right seats.
We will have a remote managing expert who can help address this within the Program as well.
Can I start with little, or no, experience?
Absolutely. It’s important to be in a growth and learning mindset, but we all must start from somewhere. I encourage beginners to start with ‘proof of concepts’ and develop their fundamental skills when first starting off in real estate. As you develop and grow, so can your projects.
What does "hacking" mean?
Hacking is a common term that means to take something that is traditionally used one way and create multiple uses with relatively little work or money.
Land hacking borrows from that same concept. Where most folks focus on a 1:1 door-to-property ratio – we look at 2:1, 3:1, 4+:1 income-to-property ratio.
This is not a get rich quick scheme. This does require funding and hard work. But that’s all relatively cheap when compared to the rewards.
Can I start leasing instead of buying?
Absolutely. For folks who do not have a lot of funds in the beginning it’s good to get started and gain the knowledge, experience and skills of acquiring, setting up contracts and then building out a site to then host.
Leasing does have some downsides though. The key ones being:
1. No equity
2. Stuck in a contract
3. Land owner can steal your idea
4. Can be more expensive than you think
How much time will this take?
A few months to a year plus. It really is dependent on if you plan on doing this part-time or full-time and how big your team and budget is. Smaller operations can get up and going within a few months with the right team. While larger projects may stretch well over a year.
But when you’re done you will have (should have) created significant equity and cash flows from your land.
What’s the best way have my space stand out?
Short answer – whatever photographs the best. People these days make decisions off of photos and videos on their cell phones. But the more thorough answer is to understand which design styles (which we talk inside the Program) are most attractive to your customer base and create the design around that. Include aspects and elements that will stand out in both photos and when guests arrive. I call these statement pieces.
How, and who, do I need to hire?
Hands down your most important hire will be the cleaner. Never work with large cleaning outfits – they don’t care about you or your property. Work with starting entrepreneurs and small local businesses. Next will be your handyman and then ultimately whoever you decide to manage the property. But honestly, when you get the right people you don’t need a manager and you save 20-30% of you rental income.
How do I know if a place is worth buying?
Lots of analysis and research goes into this, but you can do a lot of the research on the Airbnb site itself as well as AirDNA. But the end of the day I use something I call the Golden Triangle Method to determine the best locations.
Are there too many Airbnbs and STRs already?
Some areas such as city centers it’s very crowded. But even with the massively crowded markets, a lot of hosts are average at best. This leaves room for principled entrepreneurs who have a vision for long-term success and not just short-term gains – which is what I focus on.
How do I manage remotely?
It’s all about systems and having the right team put together. In the beginning you don’t need employees, but you’ll need the right contractors and what’s call systems of control. The better, and more thought out, these are the less headaches and the more automated things will be. And when you get to this level, you can literally manage properties from any distance.
What’s the best way to market my property?
Airbnb and VRBO are the top two contenders. But eventually having your own site maybe a worthwhile venture. But for 98% of listings the primary place to stand out is Airbnb.
How much can I realistically make?
On the low end, it’s about $1000/month. High end is $20,000/month. Average is roughly $5,000/month. Simply put, significantly higher than long term rentals.
What’s the best way of financing STR deals?
You can buy a property with multiple spaces with a traditional mortgage, live in one space and rent out the others. You can also use a 2nd home mortgage or investment property mortgage as well. These will all have an impact on your debt-to-income (DTI) ratio. Debt Service Coverage Ratio (DSCR) Loans are perhaps the best of both worlds. You can secure financing without proof of income, put the property into an LLC without issue and have zero effect on your DTI ratio.
