How to Start Investing with $40,000 in Self-Directed Funds
If you want to invest in real estate with self-directed funds, but you don’t have enough in your account to buy a property outright, you can still get started! At our company, down payments are in the $30,000 to $40,000 range. You can book a call with our team to learn more about investing with your self-directed IRA. If you’d like to go another route, you can seek additional financing with a company like Fund&Grow.
Financing Options for Young Investors
Inexperienced investors with little to no credit history can look into funding options like non-recourse financing. Another idea is to have a parent cosign on a loan. Additional options include business credit and working with partners. Here is a post on nine ways to fund your next investment.
How to Determine If You Should Utilize the HELOC Method with a Low Mortgage Interest Rate
Homeowners with a low interest rate on their mortgage might wonder if it’s still possible to pay off their mortgage with a HELOC, as suggested in our book, How to Pay Off Your Mortgage in 5 Years. It’s important to note that your two biggest enemies in your mortgage are time and interest. If you can reduce the amount of time you spend paying into your mortgage, it may be worth it to utilize this strategy, even if you’ve got a low rate. The only way to know for sure is to run the numbers. We’ve put together a free spreadsheet you can use to input your mortgage info!
