On this week’s episode, I’m continuing a series that coincides with my upcoming book and new name of the podcast, The Insider’s Edge to Real Estate Investing. In this show, I compare real estate investing to other investment types, such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and retirement accounts. I explain how real estate tends to be an opaque and inefficient space, meaning it’s not always easy to readily find information about every available property in your neighborhood. I also lay out why those factors work to your advantage, because if you research and get to know an area, you’ll be able to spot great opportunities and build returns on your own terms.
My writing partner Rachel Hartman interviews me as I break down two common myths that tend to hold new investors back, which are the lack of capital and lack of experience. I share my investing philosophy which reduces risk, point out ways to raise capital right from the beginning, and explain how I went from having nearly zero knowledge of real estate to becoming an expert in my neighborhood in just 90 days—and how you can too. In addition to helping me with the book, Rachel pens content for Fortune 500 companies and is a regular contributor for U.S. News & World Report (connect with her at LinkedIn).
