The necessity of real estate in plans for FI?

Wed, 28 Jan 2015 05:39:25 -0800

I'm currently reading the Automatic Millionaire Homeowner by David Bach. I think a lot of his statements are problematic, but I can't deny that the majority of people who've become FI seem to have a heavy involvement with real estate. Maybe it's just confirmation bias though. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone has become FI (or is on the way to becoming FI) without significantly personally investing in real estate (I don't consider REITs, just people who own property and are landlords or use a property management company).

If real estate is necessary (or at least, makes the journey much shorter), how does someone with absolutely no knowledge go about getting started? Is it just a matter of having the discipline to save up a down payment and then hiring a property management company? Or should you learn how to do home repairs and buy fixer-uppers? If the latter, how do you learn those skills, assuming you don't have any friends or relatives to show you how -- do you just sign up for classes at the local community college?

Edit: I'm in Canada -- does that change your advice in any way? I live in one of the big cities with heated markets, and some people are predicting a cool off if oil prices stay low, which is why my interest has been piqued.

Edit #2: I've seen some interesting answers. Here's another discussion point: How long will it take (or did it take) for you to reach FI? For further clarification: a) did you use real estate? b) how big was your portfolio when you reached your goal? c) what's your current "passive" monthly income?

Feel free to answer some or none of those questions if they're too intrusive!

seeing a lot of people frustrated with brokers and finding apartments. im an ex real estate broker who can explain the ins and outs of the real estate biz and can help you not get screwed by a broker or landlords/mgmt!

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 17:15:19 -0700

i first posted a big, long wordy post about how brokers often can screw you over when it comes to real estate in manhattan. however, i know many of you have questions and would like advice/are curious about finding apartments and how it works. (please note, i only worked in manhattan, so generally i can give advice, but mostly about manhattan and brooklyn, as i dont know as much about bronx, queens, and staten island.)

finding real estate is hard, especially in nyc and even moreso during summer. i used to be a successful real estate broker who quit because of pressure by my bosses to get more deals and placed money over customers. real estate is a big business - after all, EVERYONE needs a place to live. however, that also means that people will get screwed over, and you cant screw people over when it comes to the place where they will live and sign a lease locking them in to living at the same place, sometimes for up to two or even sometimes 3 years. seeing people get screwed over angers me a lot, so i want to help out and maybe shed some light about how things go down in the real estate world. (text post, so i dont get karma or whatever. i really dont care about that, i just want to help out.)

denver_realtor here. Let's talk about the Denver real estate market. AMA!

Sun, 23 Mar 2014 09:01:31 -0700

Hi Reddit! denver_realtor here.

I’m a Realtor with a real estate brokerage firm in Denver (I’m not going to mention them, but you’ve certainly heard the name), and I’ve been helping buyers and sellers buy and sell homes throughout the Denver metro area for the last 9+ years.

Here are some stats for the Denver market in 2013:

Number of sales: 62,256

Average sold price: $303,621

Median sold price: $251,000

Average days on market: 52

Average sale price to original list price ratio: 98.5%

Let’s talk about the Denver real estate market. AMA!

Verification has been sent to mods.

EDIT:

Wow, lots of responses! First off, I should have noted that as a Realtor I focus primarily on buying and selling – not renting. I’m not very familiar with the rental market so I may not be much help for those questions. I’ll answer what I can though.

I'm working my way through your questions as quickly as possible. I’ll be in and out today, so please be patient. What I can’t get to in the afternoon I’ll try to get to tonight. Thanks!

EDIT2:

Signing off for a few hours but keep posting questions and I'll be happy to answer them as quickly as I can when I return this evening!

EDIT3:

Thanks Reddit! This has been a lot of fun! Signing off for the evening, feel free to PM me with any additional questions! Let's do this again sometime!

The Golden Globes are picked by just 100 people, including car salesmen, real estate agents and hairdressers

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 04:11:56 -0800

From this Toronto Star article:

Current Hollywood Foreign Press Association members include real-estate agents, car salesmen, showbiz publicists, hairdressers and even a few journalists. All that is required to maintain membership is permanent residence in Southern California (so much for "foreign") and a mere four published articles per year, often in obscure publications that aren't freely disclosed.

The HFPA pretends to be a democratic operation, but it operates mainly in the dark, revealing only the names and the 55 countries represented by its members. (There are four Canadian members, one of whom, Ray Arco, also represents Denmark.)

I know it's mostly about the fancy dresses, but I'm always struck by how much power this group of 100 fairly random people wields. I imagine that they are buried in swag (and, no doubt, the occasional bribe) every year in exchange for their votes.

Gallup: Poor Americans think Gold is the best long term investment, other Americans think it's real estate

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 20:03:10 -0700

This gallup poll asks Americans "What is the best long term investment?"

That real-estate-as-top-pick view largely applies to upper-income Americans, living in households with incomes of $75,000 and over. Gallup found that 31% of those in the lower-income bracket — living on less than $30,000 — believe gold is the best investment option, followed by real estate, at 28%, and stocks, at 13%.

In between, those on incomes of $30,000 to $74,999 give gold, stocks and real estate equal billing at 26%

Anyone reached FI through buy and hold real estate investing?

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 07:20:29 -0800

Hi,

I know it's not the preferred route to FI around these parts, but I'm really interested to here stories of anyone reaching FI through buy and hold real estate investing. How long did it take, how many units, how did you grow your portfolio etc.

I'm interested in going this route myself so I guess I'm just looking for some motivation / reassurance that it can be done.

Thanks!
