Climbing Mountains and Identifying Opportunities with Real Estate Investor Dan Haberkost

We’re talking with a young investor who is making an excellent living investing in a mixture of new development, land, and long term buy and hold properties.

Meet Dan Haberkost! Dan’s goal is to build a real estate business and portfolio that allows him the freedom to live and work wherever he wants. Check out his Instagram, and it’s all photos of his projects, the mountains, and the beach. Snowboarding, surfing, hiking, and mountain biking – what a life!

Dan’s early start came when, as a high schooler, he managed a portfolio of properties for his employer at the time. He learned, listened, and studied what he saw, allowing him to shorten the learning curve and make an enormous amount of progress in just a few years.

After driving west to visit his brother, Dan quit his job in 2018, moved to Colorado, and never looked back!

Learn about buying and selling vacant lots, infill lots, and what to do when a municipal situation changes drastically (such as what happened to Dan in Pueblo West when the town stopped granting permits to build due to a lack of water!)

Things we discussed in this episode:

– How Dan became interested in real estate investing

– Building a network in a brand new town without knowing anyone

– What lessons Dan learned from early mentors

– How did Dan translate his motivation into replicable systems?

– What Dan learned during Brent Bowers’ Land Sharks class (see episode 55)

– Why Dan has pivoted his business from Colorado into Florida.

– What is Dan’s end game and hoping to accomplish in the long run?

– Understanding the quiet title process

– When Dan left his W-2 job and how that affected his ability to secure financing

Here is a link to the fascinating story behind the Pueblo West community and the history of its origin –
