Trevor Lawrence asked to be paid in Crypto currency in The Stadium Wall Posted June 23, 2022 5 hours ago, Alphadawg7 said: No disrespect but hard disagree. I’ve done this, my friends and family have done this, and many of the wealthiest people I know have done this. I’ve never met a wealthy person who didn’t name real estate as the most secured investment. Real estate is a safe and wise investment. Doesn’t mean you can’t still make dumb decisions. Like with anything else, you can still do it wrong and make mistakes. But intelligent real estate investment can’t be beat in terms of security. And when you pay cash for property your holding costs are minimal because you have no mortgage expenses. The real estate disasters you speak about generally come with over extending yourself or buying foolishly. People can’t handle the holding costs. But when you’re buying $250,000 SFR in all cash, your taxes and insurance are minimal and maintainable if there are any gaps in your rents. And if you have long gaps in renters, you either bought in a terrible location or you need to fire your property manager. And if you’re the property manager, you definitely need to fire the property manager and hand it over to a professional. $5M will get you 20 SFR at $250K each. Places I would buy them would easily rent at $1500+ a month. That’s $30k a month in passive recurring income. Forever. Additionally, if you buy them distressed and remodel then your portfolio value will already be 20-40% higher the moment the first renters move in. It’s not hard, it really isn’t. I'm not against investing in rental real estate but it does have risks like all investments. No matter how good your property is, you cannot dismiss the reality that tenants can be problematic. They may suffer economic reverses of their own which can make formerly top rated tenants unable to pay their rent. Certainly a house fire could easily keep your house empty for months and probably cost you tens of thousands in repairs beyond whatever insurance covers. A tornado can level even the best built and maintained house or apartment building. 2 hours ago, GoBills808 said: Does that 30k even cover payments on a $5M note and assuming no repairs and 100% occupancy the entire time No investment is perfect for everyone or without risk. It's best to spread your investments among various types of investments.
