Jason talks with one of his twenty-something clients who’s getting off to a good start as a real estate investor. Starting at the ripe old age of 26, Drew acquired three good rental properties that produce income of around $3,000 per month. In this multi-faceted case study interview Jason and Drew talk about the presidential debates, with a special focus on Ron Paul, buying a home vs. renting a home while purchasing income property.
The rent versus buy analysis takes on new meaning in today’s economy as we consider the “opportunity cost” of a huge downpayment and large monthly payment in overpriced areas of California or any market with undesirable LTI Ratios or “Land-to-Improvement Ratio” (an acronym and concept created by Jason as part of The Hartman Risk Evaluator). As Rich Dad, Robert Kiyosaki, says; “Your house is not an asset, it’s a liability. Assets produce income, your house costs money.” You’ll also hear some thoughts on home-based businesses.
