Have you ever found yourself wondering if there’s more to life than just doing a nine-to-five every single day? Ever thought if you’ll ever wake up one day without having to worry about where to get the money you need to pay off your bills? Or probably imagined how nice it would be to have a passive income stream that you can count on when emergencies come up?
If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of those questions above, you’ve probably figured out by now that your regular corporate job just isn’t enough to provide you with the kind of life you want for yourself and your family.
In fact, if you’re doing the nine-to-five right now, you’re probably thinking of a better way out. Because let’s be honest, wouldn’t it be great if you could just work anytime and anywhere you want and still earn the same amount of money that you do right now? Plus, how would you like to get more time for yourself and for the people you love? I’m pretty sure you’d love that.
Now, what if I tell you that there’s a way you could achieve that level of financial security you’re looking for? And what if I tell you that this is the same strategy that has produced billionaires all around the world?
Yup. You guessed it. I’m talking about real estate investing.
I’m sure this is not the first time that you’ve heard about real estate. In fact, you might already have at one point in your life considered giving real estate a try, which explains why you checked out this guide. So why don’t we give real estate investing a closer look this time?
The perks of being a real estate investor
A reliable source of passive income
This one’s a no-brainer. Real estate is and has always been the key to building generational wealth. And if you play your cards right, you can build a real estate empire from scratch. And yup, I say ‘build’ because this is no get-rich-quick scheme. Sure, you can flip a couple of houses and get close to six-figures with real estate investing, BUT it still takes a lot of time, effort, and strategic management.
So, how exactly does real estate investing work as a cash flow generator?
Well, unlike real estate agents who make money off their commissions, real estate investors earn big bucks from their rental income and gain profit from the sale of acquired assets. That means investors have a steady income stream. Agents on the other hand need to rely on the number of deals they get to close each month. Now I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, but if you’re looking for a steady income stream, then you might want to be an investor instead.
And you know what’s great about real estate investments? It’s that you reap the financial rewards on a long-term basis. Unlike other types of investments that are highly liquid and volatile, real estate is fairly stable and can yield you a high Return on Investment (ROI) as long as you know what you are doing.
So if you think real estate agents already make big money (and they do, really) then think of just how much a smart investor can actually make off his portfolio!
As mentioned, real estate is a unique investment primarily because it is highly illiquid. In other words, you can’t easily convert your investment into money. Now that might seem like a disadvantage for you, but it actually has a hidden benefit: You get to take full advantage of the annual compound interest. And I tell you, this is where you get to earn big time. But I’ll tell you more about that in a later chapter.
Remember, the value of real estate increases as the years pass. Just think of how much your property now would cost ten years later. That’s the beauty of real estate investing. You get your investment to grow without you doing anything much.
It’s a protection against inflation
Investors usually refer to real estate assets as a hedge against inflation, and for good reason! Whereas the value of most types of investments can fall depending on the health of the global and local economy, real estate investors can still earn much even as the global market crashes.
Think of it this way, when inflation occurs, prices begin to go up. That means basic commodities such as food, shelter, clothing, and even rental dues will increase. During inflation, investors can increase their rental dues, resulting in better cash flow even during a global financial crisis.
So listen. This guide could change your life.
If you’re looking for a way out of the corporate race, you’ve come to the right place. You see, if there’s one secret to wealth that most people fail to recognize, it’s that learning how to invest in real estate is one of the best ways for you to build your financial empire. And no, I am not exaggerating.
Go check the list of the world’s wealthiest individuals. You’ll see how a lot of these self-made billionaires earned their spot on that list through real estate.
In fact, real estate is the one big reason I was able to build a steady and reliable stream of passive income for me and my family.
The thing is, there’s more to real estate investing than just buying a rental property and looking for someone who’s interested in buying it from you. It’s really way more than that.
Now I understand that you’re eager to start doing real estate, especially after realizing the massive earning potential of being in this industry, but you need to start with the basics first.
Let me help you figure things out.
So as you can see, when I started out as a real estate agent and as an investor, I knew absolutely nothing about the industry.
I had to learn everything from scratch. And as expected, I had to make a lot of mistakes before I was able to find out the best strategies and techniques for this career. Thankfully, you don’t have to go through the same mistakes I did. You don’t have to learn things the hard way. You know why?
Because I’m about to teach you what you need to know so you can start making smart real estate investments and start building and living life by your design.
