Why do I invest in real estate? Yes, the question is why real estate? Well there is one word that comes to mind as I begin to write this post…LEVERAGE.
Leverage – If you have $100,000, you can buy $100,000 worth of stocks. Or, in real estate, you can leverage your money.
For example, if you have $100,000, you can put 10% down ($10,000) on ten $100,000 houses and have control over $1 million worth of real estate.
You have mortgages on those properties, yes, but put in a tenant and they’re the ones who pay those mortgages over time for you.
Harvard University doesn’t teach concepts like this. See ya in my next post.
************************* If you are reading my blog for the first time, let me inform you that: I am a guy that buys single-family houses and I write this blog weekly which is primarily directed to educate 1 group of individuals:
Individuals who are losing their shirt as a result of the “roller coaster” volatility of the stock market and low paying rate of other traditional investments…People that are looking for an opportunity that’ll provide a secured place to put their money to get it working for them to earn better than average returns.
However, often times, homeowners that need to sell their house, stop by to take a peek because they are curious and wondering how and/or where I get the funding to purchase houses. And if they stick around long enough, they begin to understand why individuals partner with me to provide the funding which empowers me to be able to purchase real estate on a continual basis. Simple, it’s because I teach them a secured way to earn better rates of return than they are currently earning using a Self-Directed IRA.
