Seeing Greene: The 10-Year Real Estate Retirement Plan (Use Home Equity!)
Listen now
If you know how to use your home equity, you can retire MUCH faster than most Americans. For the majority of homeowners, equity is just something to sit on, not something worth using. But what if you could convert your home equity into rental properties, cash flow, or even more appreciation? Where would you be in a decade if you used your equity to make even more equity in other properties? You could retire early, make more than you’ve ever imagined, and KNOW that your wealth is working FOR you. It’s Sunday, and David remembered to turn his green light on…you know what that means. We’re back with another episode of Seeing Greene, where real estate investors, rookies, and business owners shoot some of their most pressing questions at David. In this show, a young business owner wants to know how to sell (without sounding salesy). Then David describes how to use your home equity to buy even more properties, the best way to pull "wealth" from your rentals, how to retire in ten years, and why no one talks about the “BEAF” strategy of real estate investing.  Want to ask David a question?
