Case Studies

K. BRRRR: Powerful, rapid way to build a large real estate portfolio! -

The BRRRR strategy is one of the most powerful wealth-building tactics that I have encountered. It combines “Forced Appreciation” and “Velocity of Money” to allow you to build a scalable portfolio of cash-flowing assets using a limited amount of cash or private/hard money. I’ve personally used the BRRRR strategy to so far build an income-producing portfolio worth over $10 million. It cashflows CLEAN over $20k/month.  Use this information for good, not evil when building a real estate portfolio and thank me later! For more on this strategy, check out our BRRRR investing video!

    Great information, can’t believe you are doing it for free. Thank you so much. I learned a lot.

    • Daniil

      Glad you liked it!

  2. Clarence Smalling Jr.

    Very happy with the content of this video. Very good information. It will be very helpful as I begin my investing career. Please continue to put info such as this out for BEB members. Thanx so much Daniil!!!

    • Daniil

      You’re welcome, Clarence!

    When factoring in the monthly net-flow; I noticed principle, interest, insurance, other fees for rental, but I didn’t catch the property tax/escrow. Was that included in the example, so it was $270 or $350 per month, depending on how you demonstrated the calculations? Thanks!

    • Daniil

      Tim – I included taxes. It was $220 total operating expenses initially in my example. Keep in mind 2 things with my example: 1) I initially don’t factor much in reserves or maintenance because I do a FULL renovation and make sure that I address any deferred maintenance. So in the first 3-4 years my maintenance and cap x is very very minimal. 2) I am conservative on my rent assumptions. In that particular example, rent should have been closer to $1100-$1150 a month easily. Again, just an example to get your wheels turning. I’ll do another case study on some actual deals I’ve done recently

    As usual, you’re giving away instantly-actionable training for free that most others would be charging a ton for! RehabValuator .com is one of the very best sites in this space, for both the experienced investor and, especially, for the newbies out there. If you want to be a successful investor, just follow Daniil.

    • Daniil

      Thanks, George. I know you’ve been with us almost from the very beginning so I really appreciate your comments!

  5. Alvin Mowry

    I had once downloaded a short version of this software but was not aware it had all the capabilities you have shown here and I am going to get at least the free one and more than likely the full version. I like what you have shown, thank you.

    • Daniil

      Good to hear, Alvin. What I show in this video is just a short fraction of what the software can do!

  6. Don

    Calling For Sale by Owner’s in Craigs List looking for motivated sellers
    realizing that most are “For Sale by Someone Else” and that Im looking
    for needle in hay stack !

  7. This is GREAT! I just wanted to ask, when you refi with this strategy, can you only have 4 loans with the bank? So we can only do this 4 times?

    • Daniil

      Angela – no. The beauty of working with local banks and credit unions is that they make “portfolio loans” – loans they keep on the books. That means you’re not limited to only 4 properties. You can do as many as you want. I’ve done dozens and dozens with the same bank

  8. I will be using this software now, I am looking at 4 properties, thank you, I will keep you in the loop, Michael

  9. Keith Yedinak

    Hi Daniil,
    I had bought a couple of your products the Rehabvaluator, Rentalvaluator and was part of BEB. My computer had to be cleared and was wondering if I was still able to use those or do I have to buy the new premium version.

    • JacobC

      Hi Mr. Yedinak,

      I’ll email you some more details but in short: You can still access all of those things. I’ll send you instructions. In regards to the new version of Rehab Valuator that is cloud-based that is a new product. You’re more than welcome to sign up and use that as well. I’ll send you details.

  10. Keith Hogan

    Hello Daniil,
    Great training on using the Brrrr technique.
    Can the Brrrr strategy be used to obtain a CDFI lender?
    Second do you have a training video for buying and rehabing adjudicated properties? I thank you in advance for your time and attention.

    • Daniil

      Keith – I don’t have any experience with a CDFI lender but I honestly don’t see why not. Same with adjudicated properties – I don’t see any reason why not here as well.

  11. Charles

    I’m highly and highly grateful for this GIFT of information. you excited me and educated generously.
    This is a wealth of knowledge ( worth is weight in gold) you blessed me with. thank you so much. I would be getting in touch with you later. I’ll watch IT again as many times I possibly can.

    Thanks a million, DANILL!!!

    • Daniil

      You’re welcome Charles.

  12. Hi Daniil,
    You created a very practical winning video with your insights into developing wealth in real estate, and some paths to get there. Forced appreciation and the velocity of money are concepts you explain in easy to understand English. I’m now watching it again and taking good notes in order to implement this plan with my first house purchase to start my rental portfolio.
    The presentation reports with your premium version are Clever.
    Joe S. (aka. Clever Investors)

  13. Shawn

    Great info, I still can’t believe that you give away such high level content away for free, I must admit you’re PRICELESS! Keep up the Great Work!

    • Daniil

      Glad you liked the content, Shawn! Make sure to check out the rest of our site – ton of other great education there

  14. Bruce

    Hello Daniil

    Great video! I have been using the premium version for deals and it makes a statement. Watching the video gave me more valuable information on structuring deals. My goal for 2017 is to acquire at least 5 Buy and Hold properties.

    • Daniil

      That’s an excellent goal, Bruce! If you buy 5 a year for a few years, that’s already a really nice portfolio!

  15. Michael Jones

    Absolutely loved the information. I’ve signed up for the lite version of rehab Valuator and look forward to working with the software to evaluate and find deals. I am a new wholesale investor in the Maryland area and can’t wait to add this into my real estate investing career. Off to learn how to find private lenders inot the rehab Valuator site. Do you have a mentoring program as well?

    • Daniil

      Hi Michael. I don’t do any personal mentoring. The closest thing to that right now is our Bank Elimination Blueprint training which has bi-weekly group coaching calls in there. We are not currently making this available to anyone other than new Rehab Valuator Premium clients. At least at this time.

  16. Gabriel

    Thanks for the information , it very enlightening specially for those who are not familiar with the lending and borrowing process and most important the way you are showing how the numbers work.
    My question is : In order to star the buy -rehab-rent-refin- process you must have a General contractor or a renovation team already in place so that when you do the purchase you begin the renovations immediately. Any advise as to what to how is best to set up that team: Is a general contractor best idea or look for a Plummer, a roofer, an electrician and or a handy man??
    I am a commercial Realtor and I would like to pull some equity from a small plaza I own and buy more of the same product. purchase (my own money???) Refurbish (with my own money??) rent and refinance ? or it is better to use some leverage from a bank or a private money loan? Thanks

    • Daniil

      Gabriel: You can either hire a GC or you can manage your subs yourself. The latter method will save you money, give you much more control over the product and the quality but will require a lot more time. GCs will add to your cost but allow you to do more projects at the same time. All of my projects under 5 units I typically GC myself but that’s just my preference – I’m a control freak. And yes, you should be putting your team in place before you need them.

  17. we have been having trouble getting our refinanced… kinda sucks as we could pull about an extra 1000 out of one of our rentals….
    And the reason is we have very little verifiable income due to this business….
    oh well at least we will pay them off super fast..

    • Daniil

      Tony – find a credit partner. Someone that will go on the financing with you and in return get a piece of the cashflow and/or equity on the backend.

  18. Dennis Smith

    Using this Rehab Valuator. Is a person able to use it for Commercial deals as well? For apartments, Storage Facilities, Mobile Home Parks.

    • Daniil

      Hi Dennis. I just sent you an email actually. Yes, you can totally use Rehab Valuator for commercial deals, especially like the ones described in this video, where you fix/rent/refi the deal!

  19. Hi Daniil, I’m so impressed! I have been in the Real Estate and related business’s since 1957, you do the math, Ha-Ha!

    We are Las Vegas Real Estate Investors.

    In a presentation you indicated you can do this from your cell phone. Is there an App (Android) or please explain.

    Also, how about cash buyers!

    I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for everything!

    John Newman.

    • Daniil

      Hi John. There’s no separate app, but Rehab Valuator works great on your phone! Just log in and use it!

  20. Danill, Thank you, as usual you exceed expectations. Finding you has been one of the best things I have ever done. I will be upgrading to the Premium software shortly. This is a no brainer. Again,
    Thank you!

    • JacobC

      Hi John,

      Thanks for taking some time to visit our site! We try very hard to provide the info people need to be successful in their investing careers. I’m glad you found this helpful. If you ever have questions, need help with an order, or anything at all let us know.

  21. Stanley Dean

    Great training VIDEO Danniel, would love more true scenerios case studies.
    But more importantly when all us investors need is how to find the Ideal submarket location and indicators to determine the ideal location and what landmarks could indicate it to have a demand appreciation. Also what resources helps to predetermine when is a good time to buy or hold steady until the market is ideal to buy or flip. Thanks

  22. Troy Bergeron

  24. Shari B

    Thank another great training Daniil!!!. Would absolutely love to see couple of detailed “real deal cast studies” about this BRRRR strategy. Enjoy your visit in Israel, shalom.

  25. Craig Gallipo

    Wouldn’t new construction 4 plex be more profitable

  26. Thanks Daniil I been following you for a long time now and I just like to thank you and Jim for all your training I also like to say it’s a lot and yes I have to listen to it over and over again so again thank you and Jim for being the for me I believe I should have it now.

  27. Tom Calisti

    This was a great presentation. Just got a 4/3 SFH under contract and was thinking to keep for rental.
    Money should come easy presenting it with your software.
    Thanks Danill.

    • Daniil

      Tom – absolutely! Put the software to use to get financing and shoot me a testimonial when the deal is done!

  29. Douglas N.

    Thank you for the great content. I’m currently an agent who is making a move to work with investor clients I have developed. I’m also partnering in my first rehab. I had no cash, but found the deal and brought in an investor. We will both manage the rehab and I get 50% of the profit.

    I’ll take the free account for a test drive. I’m watching your video at 7:00 am. Great way to start the day.

    Thanks again for the positive energy!

  30. carl carey

    This is a great tool. I still getting to know how to work with the numbers.

  31. Darren F

    Thank You Daniil

  32. Jay

    I am learning so much from your site. Each tutorial is easy to grasp and well thought out. Thanks so much for helping the little guy to get out of the daily grind.

    • Daniil

      Glad to hear it, Jay! Got a lot more great content coming out soon!

  33. Cheryl Nelson

    Once again, a fabulous plethora of good information to help us be successful. You are THE BEST!

    Thank you so much for all you do for all of us.

    • Daniil

      Thanks, Cheryl! Always great to hear from you!

  34. Norman dukes

    This info was shared by a friend. Great stuff it’s what I need to grow my business. How is the software?

    • Daniil

      Norman – the software is awesome! 🙂 You’ll be crazy not to try it!

  35. Marvin

    Hi danill, could this module work a hard money lender such as lima one noticed thy are portfolio lenders and has a program to buy and refi??

    • JacobC

      Hi Marvin,

      I think your message was auto-corrected or something. I’m not sure exactly what you’re asking. Can you please rephrase the question?


  36. Michael F. Morrison

    I enjoyed your presentation. I’m very grateful for your software and presentations. I hope you do a demonstration on a large multifamily unit property over 100 units.
    Thank you, Danill.

  37. claude footman

    I would to test drive the system for one dollar for 14 days thankyou

  38. andre

    This is awesome information. My question is should I put earnest money down to hold property before securing funding?

    • Daniil

      Andre – not a great idea. It’s always best to line up funding before putting deals under contract. If you’re going to put earnest money down, have a clause in your purchase contract that closing is contigent on your securing funding. That way you can get your earnest money back.

  39. Bart Sklar

    Great stuff ,we do BRRRR and use rehabvaluator.
    Great product!!!!

    • Daniil


  40. The content in this BRRRR video is fabulous. Each time I watch it I’m so impressed with watching the mechanics of the RehabValuator program operations along with a fabulous rental plan. And, thanks Daniil for placing this in my morning to watch box. What a way to keep me on track and get the day rolling here at my Starbucks office. God bless and have a great day, my friend.

  41. I just keep learning more and more

  42. Have Premium Version and Windows 10 and Office 365. Can Load Picture on cover Page but other pictures disappear when I generate PDF file to print. What is Wrong??


    • JacobC

      Hi Phillip,

      The most common thing I’m seeing is that once people hit the little camera icon to open the photo controls they’re not finalizing their uploads by hitting the Green Check Mark. YOU MUST hit the green checkmark to finalize the upload of your picture. If you continue to have trouble let me know.

  43. I have this almost 3 weeks now and have 2 small deals total $80,000. $12,500 out of flip and $500 cash flow from pair. The second a Rental will bring $20,000 in 4 months when refinanced. Am I supposed to push Publish Button when I don’t want to sell the deal? — Phillip

    • JacobC

      Hi Phillip,

      The publish button is ONLY if you want to wholesale the deal in the Find Deals are inside Rehab Valuator. This makes your deal public to the other Rehab Valuator users along with whatever contact info you put in. Typically that’s going to be when you already have it under contract and you’re ready to assign it to your end buyer.

  44. Keisha

    Hi Daniil,

    Thanks for the video! Super helpful!! Can you explain the Leverage Level 3 a little further? What do you mean by “get rid of equity partners and get into deals with 0 down”? Could this also work if I don’t have any equity partners and am using my own 20% down payment to buy, a rehab loan for renovations, and then refinance?

    • Admin Admin

      Keisha – this can totally work if you just use your own cash for downpayments and banks for rehab and then refi. You don’t need equity partners if you can finance your own deals.


    GOD BLESS YOU Daniil. You really cut through all the B.S. and Hype and get right down to the Nuts and Bolts of doing Real Estate Deals. And the way you tie it in with the Rehab Valuator is just awesome and it makes total sense. I really think I can see the Light at the End of the Real Estate Investment Tunnel now. I can’t wait to explore more of your training and work on some deals. Thank You Sir.

      Thanks, Victor. This is one of the best strategies in real estate for creating wealth there is – glad you discovered it!

  47. Douglas Escobar

    Excellent education on building real estate portfolio and creating wealth.

    • JacobC

      Thanks Douglas! Glad it’s helpful for you.

  48. Carl

    do you share where to purchase rehab materials wholesale
    such as stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, tile,etc

    I love the software presentation but the rehab budgets seem unrealistic based on prices in Home Depot, Lowes,etc

    Thank You for sharing
    Carl Smith

    • JacobC

      Hi Carl,

      I don’t think that isn’t something that we go over. However, the majority of vendors will give you volume discounts OR if you’re a repeat customer you’ll get a discount. I would recommend DEFINITELY checking with local specialized vendors instead of just using Lowe’s & Home Depot. Check with local cabinet installers, stone & tile stores, etc.

  49. David Anderson

    What if the rental unit have 4 different tenants, 4 different rent and the property cost over a million dollars, will the rehab valuator do the same even though there is four different unit, different cost per unit one building?

    • JacobC

      Hi David,

      Yes! Rehab Valuator supports an unlimited # of units and you can enter in individual rents for each one. You can check the tutorial here to learn more about how to enter those in.

  50. I do not know how to share this so please email this to
    b******_***** and



    P.S. i have the free version what is my cost to upgrade to the premium?

    • JacobC

      Hi Mr. Hill,

      I’ve shared that article with your two friends. In regards to upgrading you can find the pricing here:

      Please let us know if you need anything else.


  51. Just wanted to tell you thank you. I have been whole selling for about 2 years now and have done a few deals but I have never fully understanding how to wholesale rental properties until now. This video training was very informative and I greatly appreciate it.

    • Daniil Kleyman

      You’re welcome, Justin. Glad you found this training!

  52. This is all Fantastic information however, I’m wondering… do you ever work with people one on one? In my personal situation, I would benefit much more from this one on one teaching. Is there any possibility that you would do me this act of charity given your busy schedule?

    Thank you

    ** I would be happy to explain my situation in a private email conversation.

    • Daniil Kleyman

      I don’t work with people one on one, and definitely not for free. Sorry, Dawn

  53. greg westbrook

    I’m a new member this information is wonderful, Thank you very much. I’ve spent a lot of money on real estate programs over the years this is by far the best. This will enable me to live my dream of a real estate entrepreneur. Again thank you


    • JacobC

      We’re glad it’s helping! We try and provide not only tools but also the education our customers need to be successful.

  54. If I live in California, can I do this entire process in another state?

    • JacobC

      Hi Anthony,

      You certainly can. Though it does introduce some new elements and challenges to do that. You’ll need people you can trust and who can be your proxy for those deals.

  55. Michael

    Will you teach me how to get started in investing. IN real estate Iam a beginner I been watching tv and I bought a lot of people program on real estate and still at the way when I started learn nothing can you gurantee me that I buy your videos it will. Give me all the tools to get started in real estate

    • Daniil Kleyman

      Yeah… Not gonna guarantee you anything buddy. I don’t think you have what it takes to make it with that attitude. Plus the grammar is just terrible. I would start by learning how to communicate better. You’ll never succeed in any business if this is how you compose your communications, emails, texts, etc.

  56. don

    excellent video

  57. William Allen

    While I have supported and followed your programs and your wonderful gift, for making difficult issues simple, for quite some time now! I wanted you to know, that without any question, your programs have changed my life, as well as all who have listened to my advice, to make use of your amazing teachercin this industry! Thank-you again!

    • JacobC

      Thanks Mr. Allen! That’s awesome!

  58. Joel Azuz

    Another peace towards achieving our goals, now, after watching that video I know
    that this will be my main strategy and good that it is just when I am starting
    thank you again
    I recommend everyone to commit for the premium account you wont regret it

    • JacobC

      Hi Joel,

      We agree with you. The premium is definitely worth it. We’re glad you liked the info too. It’s a solid strategy.

  61. Andrew

    Awesome content. Learning a ton!

    What’s the best way to calculate your ARV?

  62. Ricky Hines

    I like it. That’s why I repurchased it. What is a good way to handle wholesalers lead? I get them from around the US. Thank you for the information!

    • Rafael Diaz

      Hi Ricky,

      Thanks for commenting.

      The best way to handle/keep track of wholesaling leads would be to buy a CRM tool to keep track of all your leads.

      There are plenty of CRM tools/software out here try finding the one that works best for your price and needs.


  63. larry

    Could someone get started by talking with a local portfolio lender by using a heloc as percent down payment then after rehab, converting that into a long term loan? Not sure of any of this and hate to look like a fool at an appointment with a lender.

    • Daniil Kleyman

      Yes, that’s possible

  64. Brock

    This is awesome information! I have no idea how to even get started using some of this information. Is there a mentor program that I can sign-up for to help me to understand a few things?
