Real Estate Investment Strategies

Real Estate Investment Strategies

We think in terms of “How can I do it?

Real estate is an asset that is at the heart of anyone to understand, unlike the more complex worlds of stocks, bonds retirement savings. Real estate is a rare type of investing because it’s something you have an inherent basic understanding of as you live in and vacation in it every day.

And you have a good understanding of your local real estate market, maybe you have bought, or rented in that market, so you can do it!

Saying you can’t do something closes you into a box and shuts down creativity. I use my creativity to find answers and solve problems. Oftentimes, solving problems requires creativity. Creativity is often the solution to not having enough money, time, or resources.

Creativity is one of the most under-utilized resources people possess.

My first place was a 3-bedroom for $120k that I got into with only $10,800 out of pocket thanks to the loan program and my decent credit. A couple of years later I sold it and bought a four-bedroom house in a prime location.

This was in 2008, the market was very strong, and the house appreciated in value rapidly.

Five years later, I refinanced the house, took out 52k in equity, and used that as the down payment for my first rental property in New Zealand.

More stories in this book where my coauthors and I hit Amazon’s #1 Bestseller status in multiple categories!! WOW!!! I am giving it away as a bonus for visiting my website.

Then over the years as the values continued increasing, I took out equity from that property to buy more properties. I refinanced our first home in Perth and bought my first two new units in Brunswick West during the pandemic.

This was conservative leverage, less growth, but better cash flow to help if the market bust again after Covid-19.

At the point now where buying more rental houses won’t do much good. My next step will be to sell off the houses and start investing in commercial properties. There are many laws in place that protect buyers of residential properties.

I have 4 rentals that have created millions in net worth and cost me very little money. Made a significant amount of money at my job, as a health professional in the hospital. Saved as much money as I could. When I started to make good money as a nurse I did not become a millionaire. But it was a stepping stone…

Advantages of buying rentals.
It was not until I bought rentals that my net worth and stability took off. It only took a couple of years to get the first million after I started stockpiling real estate. You have to get amazing deals to make your money go farther. You have to know how to finance the properties so that you maximize your money.

  • One of the great advantages of real estate is the ability to finance it.
  • You can get long-term loans with low rates on most real estate deals. I have good brokers that help me with finances.
  • The market has fewer fluctuations compared to volatile stock markets
  • Potential healthy cash flow with regular income coming your way every month if you have worthy tenants.
  • Gives you the ability to achieve capital growth(by selling a property and keeping the profits) on top o a steady income.
  • The potential to be hands-off and earn passive income for life

To achieve financial security and real wealth in real estate investing, you need to build a diverse portfolio of real estate investments and understand the full range of strategies that work now, especially after the Covid-19 pandemic.

Compared to other assets, I believe that real estate is the far much better and more achievable route to creating wealth than stocks or ponds because;

  • Property is highly controllable
  • It is tangible
  • It is less vulnerable to short-term market risk
  • You can access the needed knowledge without obtaining a degree.
  • You can apply a variety of strategies(which we teach) with little upfront capital or use OPM

A Great Deal on an Investment Property should be making money every month on your rentals. I make $12,000 after paying taxes, insurance, a mortgage, vacancies, maintenance, property managers, and more.
