In our family, we love the musical Hamilton. I recently saw it for the second time, and as I listened to the performance I was reminded of real estate. In the song, "The Room Where It Happens," there’s a line about having skin in the game, and I couldn’t help but think about how it applies to investing.

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’ll talk about the importance of having skin in the game in a deal. I’ll share a real life example, and discuss the downsides of handouts. Don’t miss episode 147!

More About This Show
I got started in real estate by working with my mentor in wholesaling, Tom Krol. Tom has an incredible, proven program that helps investors learn how to make large profits off real estate deals. If you’re interested in learning more, watch my video with Tom, and sign up for a strategy session with his team.

In my experience working with Tom, I witnessed him give his course away to people who would proclaim that they didn’t have any money. The course is packed with value about how to make money wholesaling; it’s worth every penny. But time and time again, the people who received the course for free would never take action!

But those investors who put their own hard-earned money toward the course would meet success. That’s because when you have financial stake in something, you care more. You’re more likely to perform when you’ve invested!

If you buy rental properties with 100% financing, you have no skin in the game. I’ve seen it happen in my own portfolio—the properties that I own free and clear perform the best. I care the most about them because I’ve contributed to them.

On today’s show, I’ll discuss how having skin in the game can bring you closer to financial freedom. I’ll explain how this principle applies to both traditional banking and private money. Don’t miss this episode of Investing in Real Estate!
