Still have questions? Here are some common concerns.
But what if there is a housing crash?
There could be a crash, but no one knows for sure. We made it through the last crash just fine and rentals can actually survive a crash just fine if you buy them the right way. There are also ways to make a lot of money in real estate before, during, and after a crash.
But what if I don't have any money?
I started with little money. I worked hard to make more money and I used my personal house to get more money for my first deals. There a lot of ways to invest in real estate without tens of thousands of dollars.
But my market is too expensive!
My market is expensive too, I am in Colorado which has seen some of the highest price increases in the nation. There are different strategies for different types of markets, but an expensive market does not mean you cannot be a real estate investor.
But I don't have any extra time! I understand that.
I have twins and a newborn. The great thing about being a real estate investor is it gives you time. You don't have to quit your job right now, but with real estate, you might be able to in the near future. Getting started may not take as much time as you think.
But I know nothing about real estate!
That is why I am here!
But the stock market has better returns!
Actually it doesn't. A lot of people say the stock market has better returns than real estate investing because historically the stock market goes up more than housing prices. Housing prices are not investing. With real estate, the power of leverage, buying below market value, and cash flow (all not included in housing prices), blow the stock market out of the water.
But my friend's nephew lost everything in real estate! It can happen.
There are no guarantees in this business. You take risks in everything you do. If you want to be super successful you must take some risks and the truth is that real estate investing is not that risky if done right. You are investing in a real asset. The chances are your friend's nephew did not have a clue what they were doing or were taking shortcuts when investing and that is why they went bankrupt.
Isn't real estate coaching a scam?
Honestly, it can be. It drives me nuts to see people spending more time on marketing than on delivering value, but that is true with any business. There are good people and bad people. The truth is I make much more investing in real estate than I do from coaching. I love seeing people succeed and I even learn from my students at times. is this a scam? No, but there are scams out there so be careful.
But I don't know anyone in the real estate business!
Hey, join the club! Most people have to increase their network and meet people to be successful in this business. Just because you don't know the right people now, does not mean I can't help you find those people. If you manage to meet the right person, they may be able to help you find the rest of your team as well.
But I am too young to be an investor!
Are you 18, if so than you can buy a house. I have even helped people under 18 learn the business so that they are ready when they turn 18. Being young is a huge advantage in real estate, use that advantage!
But I am too old!
If you are still breathing you can still be successful. In fact, real estate can help you retire much faster than the stock market. It can be really hard saving enough money to retire, but real estate can quicken that process.
