Let’s talk about ways to cut your rent! A recent stat showed that over 44 million American households are renters- that means there are more folks renting now than at any point since 1965. With increasing rents we felt that it was time to focus on some proven ways to reduce that monthly expense. Justin Pogue is our guest today and he’s an author and real estate consultant where he works with property management companies and investors. Since 2003, he has developed and managed apartments, rental homes, and student housing across the United States. ApartmentTherapy, Realtor.com, and FOX News have featured his insights, and we’re glad he’s now here with us on HTM to talk about ways to reduce rent. We talk about entering into a negotiation mindset, the best times of year to get a deal, putting yourself in the shoes of a landlord, protecting your deposit, and more!

  • Extra cash – And regardless of where you are on the path to financial independence, we believe in the responsible use of credit cards. It’s smart to utilize the additional benefits that credit cards offer- for instance the 60,000 points that come with the Chase Sapphire Preferred Card. That’s $750 when you redeem through Chase Ultimate Rewards! This is no joke- I’ve already done this myself which we discussed on a recent episode after I met the initial spending requirements of $4,000 over 3 months!
