Show notes: This week we get together with Mike Marshall of Tolosa Property Group to discuss land flipping. Mike has considerable experience working with land investors and has learned the value of persistence, patience, and maintaining relationships. In our conversation with Mike, we discuss the most important considerations that come with buying and selling land. We hear about Mike’s work with navigating entitlements for land, learn how entitlements add certainty and why that greatly benefits property value. Tuning in you’ll hear Mike outline his advice for what to avoid in land investment, like why you should always avoid rezoning a property wherever possible, as well as how to avoid city council evaluations. In our mindset section, Mike shares his morning routine and unpacks what he gained from doing a multitude of courses early in his career. You'll also discover the typical timeline for land flipping and gain insight into the wild variations that occur between different states, not just in pricing, but also in potential profits. Tune in today for an exciting look at land flipping and much more!
Key Points From This Episode:
It's been a great first week for our Entitle and Flip Coaching Program. We are working with some amazingly intelligent and driven people that are working on some exciting, forced appreciation opportunities. If you're looking to build your skill base, differentiate yourself from the competition and flat out make more money without touching the property in any way at all, come join your fellow land collogues and see what it's all about. No long-term commitment required.
With the very recent release of our new Entitle & Flip coaching program, I've had the pleasure of speaking to a lot of you about where you're wanting to take your business. I've heard from many investors that they're ready to up their game, take their business to a new level and our Entitle & Flip strategy can do just that. Maybe you feel like competition in the land investing space is getting tighter, the Entitle & Flip strategy will help distinguish you from others by giving you a skill set that most others just don't possess.
There are a number of ways we can work together to get you going in the direction of entitlements. Check out the graphic below, visit our website, and contact me with any questions about how we can move forward in your investing business together.
I am blown away by the response we've received so far with the interest in our coaching program. I am honored to be working with so many of you and can't wait to see where all of this leads for all of us. Happy Friday and happy investing!!!

We've had great feedback on so many of our courses and services we provide and we're so grateful for that! One thing that has been brought up over and over is the desire of many to jump into the world of development and entitlements, but they just don't know where to begin. Well, we're here to help! We are now offering the Entitle and Flip Coaching Program.
The goal of this program is to help seasoned land investors learn how to increase the value of property without ever touching it. We do that through the use of entitlements. Entitlements are a vested right granted to property owners by local jurisdictions allowing them to use or develop their property in a specific way. Once granted, these rights cannot be taken away. The perception of risk associated with the land development industry has to do with the lack of certainty associated with a proposed project. Entitlements change all of that. Entitlements add certainty, and certainty adds value! If you can learn how to use entitlements to your advantage, you not only can profit, but you can also serve as a catalyst for positive change within your market.
We are excited to work with our coaching program members more closely and to see that the sky really is the limit in the world of investing.
Details for the program are listed below. To join our group or for more information, visit tolosapropertygroup.com/coaching-program.
Note, when we say limited space available, we really mean it. We're providing an individualized program to members and will be working closely with them to help ensure they're guided through, what can be, a very profitable world of development. If you're interested, don't wait! We anticipate filling up fast.
I spoke to someone just minutes ago who was looking to subdivide a 120-acre tract for sale to recreational users. He knows this type of user very well and believes that 5-acre lots are the ideal size for this buyer. Unfortunately, the zoning requires a 20-acre minimum lot size. His question for me was if there was any way to change the minimum lot size through a variance or something similar. Quickly, you can’t use a variance to deviate from minimum lot size requirements. So the only option would be to request a rezoning to a more intense zoning designation that allows for smaller minimum lot sizes. So the real question is if the property was a good candidate for a rezoning approval. In this case, likely not. And that has a lot to do with the zoning of the surrounding properties.
This reminded me that this is exactly the kind of information and material that is covered in the Rezoning for Profits course found on our website at the link below. Check out that page and take a look at the quick video below to learn more and be sure to reach out with any questions.
