How the stock market plunge affects us real estate investors

My answer?

It doesn’t.

Who cares.

I’m not in the stock market at all. And I don’t want to be.

Real estate is MUCH better.

Why?

1. Because, short of a dirty bomb going off in my target neighborhoods, there is no way I could lose all my value overnight from circumstances far beyond my control.

2. Because with real estate deals I can travel freely around the world and disappear for days or weeks at a time and not have to be nervously checking my stock portfolio to see if all my value has vanished like a thief in the night.

3. Because I have control over my real estate investments, I can make them more valuable by repairing them or increasing rents. With stocks I have no control what-so-ever.

4. Because I actually know what my true financial numbers are for a deal or for a cashflow property. Rather than having to trust a corporate annual report that is basically designed to make everything look rosy and rather than having to trust that a company is actually reporting their true numbers and actual financial situation. (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles “GAAP” actually make me laugh!)

So I stick to real estate deals.

I wholesale for Rapid Cash Generation.

Then I invest my profits in large apartment buildings or self-storage complexes.

(All of which other investors manage, as I only want to be a silent money investor. Don’t call me when a toilet breaks and I don’t want to deal with tenants at all.)

I sleep easy at night because I know that whatever tomorrow brings will not destroy my real estate portfolio.

Can anyone in the stock market say that? (Especially after the rollercoaster ride this week?)

That’s how I roll.

How do you want to roll?

If you want to learn how to Generate Rapid Cash and then invest it in other deals, then my 1-day training this Saturday is perfect for you.

Use the initial cash you generate to solve your current problems, then once stable, start investing in any types of deals you choose for the long-term.

You’ll sleep better at night too.
