On the First Friday of each month, we air a special bonus episode.
Historically, these episodes have been the same as our normal weekly shows. They alternate between interviews and community Q&A episodes.
But for more than a year, I’ve wanted to create something special, something that makes these monthly bonus episodes stand out from the pack.
Today (and no, this is not an April Fools’ Day joke, that’s just comically unfortunate timing), we’re thrilled to roll out a new special feature that will air on every First Friday episode, from this point forward.
It’s called Invest Anywhere, a special feature presentation by Afford Anything. It’s co-hosted by me (Paula) and my incredibly accomplished teammate, Suni Rao.
Suni is a real estate investor with 7 units; she purchased most of her units from out-of-state. She’s been investing for four years and has experienced the gamut: she’s bought single-family, duplexes, multiunits, even a mobile home park. She’s financed through househacking, investor loans, and private loans. She’s bought-and-held, she’s flipped (sometimes accidentally), and she’s wholesaled.
She’s my co-host on the Invest Anywhere series, a proud new feature that we’ll run on the First Friday of each month.
This series will focus on how to invest in real estate long-distance.
Enjoy the inaugural episode!
How do people make money in real estate?
Many focus on rental income, but this is only one of five ways that properties create wealth.
We explain five surprising ways that real estate builds your balance sheet: cash flow, appreciation (market-based and forced), tax benefits, principal paydown, and instant equity at closing.
Why does this matter for long-distance investors?
If you’re investing out-of-state, you’ll need to choose a city or town. How do you decide? First, think about how you want to bias your returns. Do you want to optimize for cash flow? More appreciation potential? Identifying this will help you align your city/town selection with your financial goals.
If you’ve been thinking about investing in real estate – especially if you might invest long-distance – you’ll love this episode.
