If you’re ready to take the leap into renewable energy for your real estate business, then this episode is for you!


We dig deep into the key features of what makes solar a good investment on commercial properties, especially Airbnbs. A few key terms like NOI and income approach are thrown out there, no worries—all that means is that if you are the landlord and paying for utilities — adding a power planet to your roof will drastically affect the valuation of your business/investment.

Unlike single family homes, most “commercial” properties are valued based on the income they produce minus the expenses, not comparable houses. The financing is important, but separate from that equation and makes it a bit confusing - but a great opportunity to focus on efficiencies to improve the value of your business.

For larger multifamily commercial properties with individual meters for tenants, it may make financial sense to consider solar based upon the orientation of your roof and the amenities the owner/investor must pay for.

Blake has skyrocketed in the investing world starting 18 months ago with his first purchase and now has 85 doors.

His systematic approach has yielded an almost 100% occupancy rate this past year despite covid.

Logan grew up on a corn farm in MN and bought his first solar panel at 15.

Today we’re going to listen to them brainstorm with actual numbers on an airbnb property with 9 months of utility data to decide if solar is a good investment for profits and polar bears.
