Our average client comes to us with about $300,000 in unused equity sitting in the house they live in. By using the Platinum Property strategy of refinancing as a method of creating wealth, you could retire with a $67,000 income in 12 years. This is a conservative estimate based on historical track records.
Did that get your attention? It should.
This is the surest road for the middle-class investor to reach financial independence but you never hear it trumpeted in the national media. Why not? Because it works and it’s not flashy. The Wall Street beat is a gruesome daily train wreck with dizzying up and downs. It’ sexy. It’s ridden with scandal. That pretty much sums it up. Apparently, the “Jim Cramers” of the financial world prefer a cowbell ringing roller coaster than a genuine path to real wealth.
We’ve discussed this before but, in a nutshell, here’s how it works.
Tap that unused equity in your home and put down 20% on a one million six-pack of rental properties in diverse geographical areas. Take out a loan to pay for them at 3.5% interest. Leave $40,000 in your account for reserve. That works out to $275,000 you are out of pocket.
In 12 years that six-pack of properties will likely be worth about $2 million. Now comes the refinancing part. Take out a loan of 80% loan-to-value ratio and leave 20% equity in your portfolio. Your new loan amount will be $1.6 million with and $400,000 sits as reserve equity in your account. You pay off the previous loan and end up with $800,000 in cash, which you could use to pay yourself about $67,000 per year until the next 12 year refinancing cycle comes around, at which point it will multiply even higher.
