Today’s Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 622, originally published in January 2016.
This episode can be summed up by the popular saying “Everyone is a genius in a bull market”. Many financial hosts warn against taking on debt to build wealth. Jason clearly illustrates why we should be using fixed rate mortgage as a financing vehicle and outsourcing debt to tenants while enjoying the tax advantages.
Naresh is not a real estate investor, yet. He has come up with some basic, but necessary questions for Jason which will help him and all of you budding, soon to be real estate income property investors out there. Jason reminds us “real estate is the most historically proven asset class” and carefully lays out his answers in easy to understand, common sense terms.
