While the interview mainly focuses on rental real estate, it offers some insights into the power of mapping out your goals along with some tips for business owners looking to close the retirement gap.
Over the years, I have encountered very few advisors recommending residential or commercial income properties to their clients outside of real estate stocks (REITS) or non-listed REITS.
Yet, cash flowing income properties may offer a hedge against the inevitable swings in the stock market. Frankly, it helped my financial advisory practice weather three epic financial storms in less than nine years-Dotcom Crash, Housing Crash, Lehman/Bear Stearns Crash to name a few.
Furthermore, cash flowing income properties coupled with a globally diversified portfolio of stocks and bonds may be a strategy that can help you pursue your retirement goals.
If you are looking for some advice on how to potentially enhance your wealth through income producing real estate, let me know.
Over the last decade, I have offered guidance to numerous clients about rental properties to help determine if this would be a suitable investment."
