What do the top 1% of the wealthiest individuals in the U.S. have in common? They all invest in Real Estate.
Being in the top 1% may not be your goal, but I am pretty sure one of your goals is to do a whole lot better in your finances than you are right now or you wouldn’t be reading this.
Truth is, Real Estate Investing is a GREAT way to grow your personal wealth and live the life you want.
Learning how to do Real Estate Investing grows your personal wealth by:
1) Letting you create cashflow month after month.
There are several ways to accomplish cashflow creation in Real Estate. For example, you can:
a) Wholesale properties
b) Become a flx-n-flipper (I was more like a fix-n-flopper, but you will have to read my book to learn more about that)
c) Buy them yourself (using none of your own cash or credit) and then hold onto them as rental properties
d) Invest in commercial property and lease it to businesses
e) Partner in larger deals (like apartment buildings or a luxury resort) and receive cashflow across all quadrants (Appreciation, Depreciation, Amortization and Cashflow)
f) Purchase land and figure out cool ways to earn cashflow (like agricultural crops and leasing the land to those who want wind farms)
2) Allowing you to work at your own pace.
Once you’ve made the commitment to learn Real Estate Investing, you can start earning a darned good living rather quickly.
A lot of my clients start earning anywhere between $2,000 to $10,000 a month within their first few weeks when they follow my direction and take action at the speed of instruction. That’s no joke. And they do this working as many or as few hours as they wish.
These individuals may start out while working a day job, but pretty soon they’re quitting the 9-to-5 life. (Of course, some people truly love their jobs, and they stay in them while earning plenty of money as investors.)
3) Saying goodbye to your boss.
When you start earning money through Real Estate transactions, you’ll likely find your day-job (or night job) boss holds little appeal.
In Real Estate Investing you get to be your own boss, which is pretty exciting. Sure, you’ll have to pay your own insurance and run your own Real Estate Investing business, but the rewards are tremendous.
Leave the W-2 work-a-day world behind and live life more fully. I did and I’ve never looked back!
4) Giving you the ability to earn on the road.
Go ahead. Hit the road!
You can invest in Real Estate anywhere and from anywhere.
If you live in California doesn’t mean you will invest in California. In fact, it’s likely you won’t because of high cost of living in California. (You will find that true in Hawaii and New York, too.)
Why would you limit yourself to just one state when there are 49 other states and a whole, wide world of opportunities for Real Estate Investing? You can travel to different locations to invest or you can invest in other locations from the comfort of your own home or office. Believe me on this point. I live it. So do lots of other investors I know.
5) Bringing you much higher returns than with ANY savings account.
If you are earning 1.5% on a savings account or retirement savings account and could get twice, three times, four times or even eight times more of a return on your money, why wouldn’t you? You can. It’s called Real Estate Investing.
You can transfer your savings or retirement account into a Self-Directed IRA and control where your money is being invested. It’s called Self-DIRECTED because you are the director. You make the decisions. (Not a broker who works for a percentage of your returns.)
As a result, your IRA is making the investment and that’s where the returns…. well, are returned. You can watch your retirement account grow exponentially over the years and actually have money to retire and live well when the time arrives.
6) Letting you get deals done without using any of your own cash or credit.
This point can’t be beat.
You can do all your deals using none of your own money yet you won’t be helping just yourself and your wallet.
You’ll be helping your investors, too! (Refer back to point 5 for a clue as to where these people who will let you use their money in your deals might come from.)
I work with a number of individuals who didn’t see themselves as investors, but when they came to understand that their savings and retirement accounts were bringing them very small returns (and what their brokers were earning off their returns), their eyes were opened.
These investors want to earn better returns and not just for a short period of time. Deals can be structured to allow them to receive a check every month forever.
If I were to ask you when you’d like for me to stop sending you a monthly check, what would your answer be? Exactly! The answer would be “never.”
This is why some of my investors invest with me again and again and again in different deals. It’s simple math really. Plus, when I’m Raising Private Capital for my deals, an investor isn’t necessarily stuck in investing in a specific deal. I have several. Each has different structures and benefits. I have to learn what the investor is looking for so I can help him solve his problems and help him reach his goals through my deals.
This happens all the time. I can’t wait for you to understand how to do exactly what I do in Real Estate Investing! Come on in. The water’s fine.
