The Best Way to Utilize a HELOC to Grow Your Portfolio
If you’re going by the principle of the three stages of real estate investing, then I’d suggest using your equity to put down payments on multiple rental properties. This allows you to accumulate more properties, keep more of your cash in your pocket, and use the bank’s money to build wealth. Of course, don’t over leverage yourself and be smart about your risk tolerance. In general, at this point in time I think it’s smart to leverage.
How to Grow a Massive Real Estate Portfolio (and Why You May Not Need to)
My friend in New Jersey had a massive real estate portfolio. I met him when I was wholesaling; I would bring deals to him and he would pay me a finder’s fee. He used the BRRRR Method to build up his large portfolio, which means he renovated properties and placed tenants in them. Then he pulled out his equity to buy more properties. He had a well-oiled machine, including owning a property management company.
While this investor’s story is certainly attractive, I want to remind you that you don’t need thousands of doors to reach financial freedom. I believe that you can create the life you want by setting a goal that is tailored to your lifestyle and your finances.

What to Consider About Whole Life Insurance Policies
To be completely transparent, I’m no expert on this topic. Natali and I have looked into using this method several times, and each time we decided not to move forward. However, I do have many podcast episodes about this topic, including interviews with experts. I would suggest you listen to those episodes to help determine if this strategy is right for you.
