Contrarian Academy Course Outline


Timing & Recessions

Timing is one of the most important parts of real estate. If you get the timing right, you can do a lot of the smaller things wrong and still come out on top.

Most of my wealth was made during the recessions (first commercial property was purchased in 2000) and throughout my years, I’ve seen how the cycles go. In this section, I’m going to share how I think about real estate cycles and how I identify the best times to double down.


Finding Properties

Finding prime and distressed properties is one of the most difficult parts of commercial real estate. Most investors think that properties are too expensive to invest in or that all the valuable properties are taken up, but that’s not true if you know how to find them.

In this section, I’ll show you how I underwrite properties and how I find “hidden gem” deals even in competitive markets.


Financing Deals

When you’re investing in commercial real estate, it’s good to understand the different financing options available to you. We’ll go over the different options you have to finance your deals and which ones I prefer depending on the situation.



We’ll go over what you need to do during negotiations: the questions you need to ask, the processes I go through, how I do my due diligence, and much more. As I say, you always want to make your money on the buy, and a big part of this is done by using leverage to negotiate a great price on the property.


Closing On The Property

Closing the commercial real estate transaction is a process that can be overwhelming. This section will walk you through every step in the commercial real estate closing process.

You’ll see where it’s similar to the residential closing process and where it’s different. You’ll also discover the places you need to be cautious and where your due diligence efforts are most important.


Adding Value

There are dozens of ways to add value to your commercial property. In this section, I’ll show you all the strategies and tactics I’ve used over the years to add value to my properties (many at no to low cost) and get bigger pops on the exit.


Real Estate & Taxes

Commercial real estate gives you much more depreciation to write off than residential properties. In this section, we’ll talk about the tax benefits, cash-out refinances, 1031 exchanges, and more.


Selling The Property

When selling commercial property, there are some mistakes investors will make that they wouldn’t make during a residential sale. In this section, I’ll show you how to avoid the mistakes most commercial investors make when starting out, how to identify when to sell at the right time, and how to sell at the maximum value price point.



Here you will find all the templates and resources mentioned within the program. This includes important contracts, tools such as an underwriting template, an FAQ section, checklists, and many other valuable resources for your commercial real estate journey.
