Working at Walmart Could Help Make You a Millionaire in Just a Few Years—Here’s How by Anna Cottrell

Working at Walmart Could Help Make You a Millionaire in Just a Few Years—Here’s How by Anna Cottrell

If you dream of becoming a real estate investor but work at Walmart, you could well be on your way to realizing your dream much sooner than you think. This comes with one important caveat: You’d need to manage a Walmart store to enjoy the financial benefits that could set you up with the cash needed to invest.

Walmart U.S. announced last week that it would be giving its store managers stock grants in the company. The announcement comes after Walmart also made the decision to raise managers’ salaries and introduce a new bonus structure that...

5 Things I Always Look For—And You Should Too—in a Flip by Henry Washington

5 Things I Always Look For—And You Should Too—in a Flip by Henry Washington

When evaluating deals in the competitive world of house flipping, as showcased in my current project, featured in my Flip/Off battle with James Dainard (you can also read about his weekly progress), I consider several key factors to ensure both a strategic purchase and a profitable sale. These components are crucial to the success of the flip and are designed to resonate with a broad range of potential buyers, especially those entering the market for the first time.

But before I share my recipe for success, let me give you some background on my project.

Beyond the Mailbox: Innovative Direct Mail Strategies That Win in Today’s Market by Benjy Nichols

Beyond the Mailbox: Innovative Direct Mail Strategies That Win in Today’s Market by Benjy Nichols

Breaking news: Direct mail is still a key factor in real estate marketing, and it has the potential to be bigger and better than ever before. That’s because the analog marketing technique is being supercharged by digital tools. 

The days of the one-size-fits-all approach are gone. We all remember those days: stacks and stacks of the same advertising leaflets delivered to hundreds of local mailboxes, only to be discarded by uninterested (and often annoyed) residents. The cost of printing was, in many cases, unjustifiable, given the lackluster performance of this marketing method.

More Units Doesn’t Mean More Money—Why a Single-Family Home Can Beat a Fourplex by Eric Fernwood

More Units Doesn’t Mean More Money—Why a Single-Family Home Can Beat a Fourplex by Eric Fernwood

The notion that investing in multifamily is always better than investing in single-family is false. The goal of real estate investing isn’t to own a particular type of property but to secure a reliable income. The reliability of this income doesn’t depend on the property type but on the tenant who occupies the property.

To show you what I mean, I will compare the financial performance of a typical fourplex in Las Vegas to the kinds of properties we’ve targeted over 16 years.

J Scott Rebuttal to Scott Trench: Multifamily Will Be Fine by J Scott

J Scott Rebuttal to Scott Trench: Multifamily Will Be Fine by J Scott

In his recent article, BiggerPockets CEO Scott Trench did a great job enumerating all the reasons why multifamily is in the difficult position it’s in. If he had written these same things a year ago, I wouldn’t be writing this rebuttal—I would have simply said, “Ditto.”  

But I don’t believe that the picture he has painted is an accurate reflection of where things are headed. Here’s why.

Here’s the Blueprint to Financial Freedom Today—Even When Mortgage Rates Are High by Jeff Vasishta

Here’s the Blueprint to Financial Freedom Today—Even When Mortgage Rates Are High by Jeff Vasishta

Most investment strategies touted by gurus involve first buying a course to learn their strategy to get rich in real estate. While subject-to deals, wholesaling, syndicating, BRRRRing, Airbnb arbitrage, and fix and flipping, when done correctly, have undoubtedly been ways to make money, they all involve an element of risk or hard work to find deals. 

There’s another way. This blueprint is for the risk-averse, those working full-time, interested in the tried-and-true investing methods, and satisfied with growing their portfolio and wealth over time.

Are Adjustable Rate Mortgages a Lifeline for Lower Rates? Or the Most Dangerous Thing You Could Do? By Jeff Vasishta

Are Adjustable Rate Mortgages a Lifeline for Lower Rates? Or the Most Dangerous Thing You Could Do? By Jeff Vasishta

If, like me, you check mortgage interest rates like an expectant parent checks their wife’s contractions, you doubtless will have analyzed every type of loan product in an attempt to inch the currently high rates down. 

Famed financial guru Suze Orman recently appeared on CNN extolling the virtues of an adjustable rate mortgage (ARM). But to many American homebuyers, mentioning an ARM is like the Ghost of Christmas Past returning to haunt us once more: Weren’t ARMs partly to blame for the 2008 financial crash? 

ARMs were derided in 2008 because many Americans got into financial...

Short Term vs Long Term Real Estate Investing by Chris Bibey

Short Term vs Long Term Real Estate Investing by Chris Bibey

There is no right or wrong way to invest in real estate. All that matters is that you’re comfortable with your strategy and positioned to generate a positive return on investment (ROI). However, it never hurts to compare all your options—and that means taking a closer look at short-term vs. long-term real estate investing.

Who Cares About the Number of Doors You Have—Cash Flow Is What Actually Matters by Jeff Vasishta

Who Cares About the Number of Doors You Have—Cash Flow Is What Actually Matters by Jeff Vasishta

When you’re talking to real estate investors, they’ll often tell you how many doors they own, meaning how many rental units they have in their portfolio. Stating door numbers, however, can often be misleading. Generally, the real metric to keep track of is cash flow because, after all, profitability is what counts in any business, right? 

Sometimes, though, the two can get conflated, and on occasion, owning just a few doors, irrespective of cash flow, can be a good strategy for building long-term wealth.
