5 Real Estate Investing YouTube Channels I’m Following (And Why They’re Awesome)

I've been spending A LOT of time on YouTube lately

As the #2 highest traffic website on the internet and by far the #1 video platform online today – there's a lot of stuff going on here.

Whether you're looking for instructions, tutorials, lessons, or just pure entertainment (on virtually any topic you can imagine), there's something for everybody… if you know where to look.

In this blog post, I want to tell you about 5 YouTube Channels I've been paying attention to lately in the real estate investing space.

When I'm looking for a good YouTube Channel, there are just a few basic standards they have to meet…

1. Quality Content

Whether the purpose is for entertainment, teaching new skills or informing the world about what's relevant today, a great YouTube channel MUST produce quality content. The kind of information that changes your life, helps you see a new perspective and makes you stick with the video from beginning to end.

2. Regular Uploads

As a YouTuber myself – I know that good videos require a TON of skill, effort and time to produce… so I don't necessarily expect every YouTube channel to publish new videos daily, or even weekly for that matter – but if a channel isn't posting new videos every few months at the very least, they don't belong on this list.

3. Viewer Focused

Every good YouTube channel I've seen exists for the ultimate purpose of being monetized (even if it's in an indirect way). What separates the best channels from the rest is that they're much more tactful about how they do this. When I'm watching a video – I'm not watching for the sole purpose of being sold on that person's latest course, book, or whatever. However, if a video delivers some kind of BIG “Aha moment” or keeps me thoroughly entertained (even if I don't buy that person's latest thing), it can still make for a great video.

And of course, a blog post on this topic wouldn't be complete without a VIDEO. So here you go!

Note: This is NOT a paid endorsement of any kind. I just thought these YouTube channels were cool and wanted to share them with you.

BiggerPockets

These guys have been dominating the real estate investing space online for years now, so it's no surprise that the BiggerPockets YouTube channel also delivers great content on a regular basis (and I mean like… every day, regular – which is pretty impressive).

Most of their videos are the “talking head” type, along with re-purposed video recordings of their podcast episodes. Here's a quick look at one of my favorites from my buddy Brandon Turner…

If you're not familiar with BiggerPockets yet, be sure to check them out and sign up for a free account.

John Fedro

I've been following John's YouTube Channel for a couple years now, and this guy really brings some value to the table. He's got a great demeanor on camera and knows how to convey his points and ideas clearly. Here's a quick taste of his videos…

Epic Real Estate Investing

I discovered Matt Theriault's YouTube Channel a few years ago and I've been impressed with all of his videos I've seen to date. He's got a no-nonsense approach that doesn't over-sell or over-hype, he just dishes out great advice and wisdom from his years of experience in the real estate business. Check this one out…

You can learn more about Matt at EpicRealEstate.com.

Phil Pustejovsky

I'll be totally honest – I wasn't crazy about the first few videos I saw from this guy. I'm not entirely sure why, but for some reason his presentation just didn't land right with me.

After writing him off for a while, I kept seeing his videos all over the place – so I decided to give him a chance and watch a few of his videos in their entirety. As I eventually found, most of Phil's videos are actually very, very good. This guy offers a TON of sage advice and insight on how to make a killing as a real estate investor – and when you boil it down to the real substance of what he's saying, there's a lot to learn from this guy.

It's also worth mentioning – Phil's YouTube Channel currently has the highest subscribership of any real estate investing channel online, and whether you're a fan or not… you can't build that kind of following on YouTube unless you're bringing some substantial value to the table.

Fix And Flip Hub

There are a lot of real estate investing channels on YouTube, and most of them are fairly amateur in their video production quality. There's nothing wrong with shooting every video on a webcam or phone if you're explaining things that really help people – but I think there's also something to be said for videos that tell a good story and are produced well.

Marty Boardman and Manny Romero have put together some incredibly entertaining and informative videos on their YouTube Channel, showing their fix and flip projects in Phoenix and Milwaukee. Marty handles all the videos himself – and even though there are no camera crews involved, every video is the kind of thing you'd see on TV. They're really good! Just look at this example…

These guys are the real deal – and they prove it in every video they publish. Learn more about these guys at Fix and Flip Hub.

What Are You Watching Right Now?

This should go without saying – but I'll say it anyway… I realize there are a TON of other great YouTube Channels I haven't mentioned here… but I'm just one guy, and I can only pay attention to a small handful of YouTubers at a time.

This is where YOU come in. If you know of any great YouTube Channels that I (and the rest of the REtipster audience) should check out, let us know about them in the comments below!

    Hey Seth-
    My go-to YouTube video has been FlipAnythingUSA. It’s pretty grass roots but the guy, Tom, is a very successful real estate investor over 30 yrs and owns a large manuf business among other things. He flips anything he can from hi-lo’s, to commercial office buildings, houses, you name it. I like his down-home style and I find myself spending much longer on YouTube than I intend when I get glued to watching his videos.

    • Ron says:

      I have to agree. Those channels can provide great information that’s easy to follow, enjoyable and up to date. Entertaining and informative at the same time, great article!

  • Dean Muriby says:

    Hey Seth, thanks for your sharing. It was great help for starters like me. I really liked BiggerPockets and Fix&FlipHub. BiggerPockets are has very informative contents with their podcasts and reviews. Great work.

  • Doug Taylor says:

    Hey Seth,

    Really like what you’re doing with the retipster concept! Many of your posts are filled with great ideas for both seasoned agents as well as newcomers to the business. Wanted to take a minute and share with you and your audience our web series #theWiRE (the Week in Real Estate) We publish content weekly on our YouTube channel and feel that it can serve as inspiration for other agents who may be struggling with content marketing and using video in their real estate business.

    #theWiRE features segments such as AUTHORITY where we break down the legal, mortgage and tax side of the real estate business. OUT & ABOUT takes viewers around to various events and happenings within the community. Our GUIDED VIDEO TOURS of our listings are quite different from the traditional marketing pieces that many agents use. And we also do a SPOTLIGHT segment which features a person, business or charitable organization in the community that is recognized for their outstanding service and contribution to the community.

    Thanks and I hope agents get some value out of what we’re doing.

    Cheers,

    Doug
