Techies - Would you be interested in learning how to invest in real estate?Dec 1, 2018
With a mix of high incomes and the ability to analyze numbers, there's no reason why tech workers can't be making big returns in real estate.
I learned how to actually invest in real estate and am working on my fourth property. Thinking of putting my knowledge into a book tailored for the tech community. Would you be interested in this?
I also invest and theres enough books plus Biggerpockets. Theres nothing unique about working in tech and real estate investing, and to be frank with only 4 properties you are still a beginner.
- Dude, making a short term profit during the greatest expansion since the 50’s by being over leveraged with cheap, stupid money doesn’t take a lot of explaining.
- Snapchat dilbert123Pretty toxic eh..OP was was trying to help..if we r interested ..move on..chill out ..no reason to bash him
- Pretty sure stocks are easier, especially since you dont have to worry about actually maintaining them. Plus you can make about 8% a year with stocks, pretty comparable to real estate is it not?
- New DuQvV7xWriting a book is not profitable.
4 properties is not enough to share experience. You’re still learning.
When you get to 10, you may be almost ready.
- LinkedIn / EnggoldbugmoreShare the contractors you use, the real estate broker you use, the property management company you use and the mortgage broker you use.
- Facebook / EngkerbyFrom my experance in FinTech, a lot of normal tech workers are actually pretty bad with investment and vastly overestimate their abilities. I know enough to realize how much I don't know. The average person's investment strategy is basically gambling (But boy does Wallstreet appreciate the extra liquidity)
I can't say if you fall into that category or not OP, but I got to see South Florida first hand during the 2008 real estate crash and just how many engineers fucked themselves over thinking they were making smart investment choices with real estate. Try not to overextend, you need to be able to hold those properties when you can't find tenants and they have negative equity.
