On today’s episode Rich sits down with Rafa Loza – short-term rental & boutique hotel investor, who’s made his mark in the hospitality and short-term rental industry over the past six years. Originally leveraging an arbitrage model, Rafa seamlessly transitioned into boutique hotel operations, his entrepreneurial spirit fueling his growth. He now owns and operates a large-scale hospitality brand, managing over 72 short-term rentals and a boutique hotel, with his portfolio growing month after month. Rich and Rafa discuss the business plan for his boutique hotel, different lending options, how he found investors for that deal, and a breakdown of the renovation package. They dive into how Rafa got into real estate investing, an overview of the structure of his team, and some tips for new investors looking to get into the game.
