So, you want to achieve financial freedom with real estate investing, but you’re a busy person with a demanding job and a lot of responsibility. You don’t have time to learn the ins and outs of putting together an advisory team, finding a good deal, or making decisions about the financing and management of a property.
The fact is, you can STILL enjoy the benefits of real estate investing by becoming a passive investor in multifamily syndications. On the latest episode of the Apartment Building Investing podcast, I sit down with Michael Blank to discuss how I achieved financial freedom through passive investing in commercial real estate.
I describe the differences between an active and passive investor, sharing my goals as a passive investor and the characteristics of an ideal candidate for passive investing. I also offer insight around my preference for multifamily over other asset classes and explain how to calculate the amount you need to invest to earn a particular cash-on-cash return.
Listen in to understand the incredible tax benefits of real estate investing and get my take on the #1 thing passive investors should consider before handing their money over to a syndicator!
