On today’s show, we’re going to dive into what’s going on with the housing crisis, and how it differs from 2008. You’re going to learn about rental rates, bubble markets, the future of jobs, and why so many Millennials have moved back in with their parents. I’m also taking three listener questions for our Monday Q&A!
The first question I’m answering is about how to choose between investing and paying off debt. I’m also answering questions about raising capital, and what to consider about HELOC draw periods and repayment periods. Please join me for this episode of Investing in Real Estate!
On this episode you’ll learn:
- How to decide between investing and paying off debt.
- Tips for raising capital for real estate investing.
- What to consider about HELOC draw periods.
How to Decide Between Investing and Paying Off Debt
I don’t find it necessary to choose between two financial goals because you can often pursue both. I would personally not prioritize paying off student loans, since the interest rate is typically low. If you want to pay down the mortgage on your primary home, I’d recommend reading my book, How to Pay Off Your Mortgage in 5 Years. You’ll have to do some math, but I think you’ll find that you can realistically pay down your mortgage and buy rental properties simultaneously.
Tips for Raising Capital for Real Estate Investing
If you’re having issues raising capital for real estate investing, I encourage you to ask yourself if you have a good deal. In my experience, a solid deal always attracts capital. That being said, if you are still having troubles, I’d suggest reading Getting the Money by Susan Lassiter Lyons, as well as putting yourself out there at local meetups.
What to Consider About HELOC Draw Periods
When trying to choose a draw period for your home equity line of credit, it really comes down to personal preference. What goals are you trying to reach, and what is a realistic time period? Will you be ready when the draw period ends? Personally, I’ve only used HELOCs with 10 year draw periods, but I don’t see any problem with using a longer period either.
