Real Estate Thoughts

Super_Bowl - 1

The most frequent question that I get from readers since I converted over to the “doom and gloom” camp is this: “Why don’t you sell one of your Bay Area rental properties if you think the markets will crash?

There’s no doubt that I think we are due for an upcoming market crash/correction…

But the order of magnitude?

I have no earthly idea…

Looking back, the last post I put out was obviously emotionally charged. In hindsight, I probably should have just held back from releasing it altogether since I didn’t allocate much more than 5-10 minutes to write it up… Many of my thoughts were disjointed and not many details were shared…

It was rushed…

But I am human, I make [click to continue…]

At this stage of the game, I still believe that it is way too early to declare that we are officially in a “bear market” (even though a sh!t ton of data would support that). Nevertheless, the continued market selloff into this week has spooked a lot of investors… And rightfully so.

I’ve always believed that what goes up must come crashing [click to continue…]

One common question that I get from real estate investors is — “How do I overcome the debt-to-income (DTI) ratio?” That, along with — “How do I buy more units and grow my business more quickly?

For anyone who has accumulated a few units in a reasonably [click to continue…]

When it comes to investing, really, who doesn’t love a good deal? We are all well aware that if you want to get to early financial independence, you must amass a good amount of wealth in a relatively short-period of time.

What’s the best way of accumulating wealth?

Most freedom fighters like to focus on [click to continue…]

When it comes to real estate investing (REI), most investors who first get started like to compare it to other alternative options available in the marketplace. A Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) is a very common platform that allows anyone interested in real estate to get exposure to the sector. REITs have become so popular, in fact, that many investors mistakenly assume that they are not only a suitable alternative to REI, but actually [click to continue…]

Early financial independence is NOT easy to achieve… If it was, quite frankly, everyone would be wealthy and out playing on the beach instead of spending all day trapped inside a darkened cubicle. But in order to become financially independent, most likely you will need to [click to continue…]

Currently, in the precious metals space, most everyone knows that these mining stocks are trading at a significant discount relative to their historical valuations. Some speculators, such as myself, have started to jump into this sector with hopes of scoring some BIG gains in the upcoming future.

With that said, it wasn’t that long ago when I was [click to continue…]

They say that if you want something badly enough, you will find a way to make it happen. As it pertains to early FI, the question remains the same — How BADLY do you want it?

Up to this point in the blog’s history, I have spent very little time addressing the topic of personal expenses. When it comes down to how much a person spends on a given month, I feel that it is indeed 100% personal… There’s absolutely no way to generalize spending because [click to continue…]

When it comes to early financial independence and creating wealth for yourself, I truly believe that the best opportunities ONLY ever present themselves at the bottom of brutal bear markets.

Fortunes are made when we go against the grain, back up the truck, and acquire the very best assets at bargain basement discounts. Investors who have not been so fortunate before to buy at the bottom are quick to dismiss this investment philosophy as one that is based on [click to continue…]
