How to Prepare for the Crash of the Dollar

The best way to protect your wealth from inflation and the fluctuating value of the US dollar is to buy tangible assets. Real estate has sustained itself for thousands of years, and is a solid investment due to its ability to appreciate in value year after year. You also might consider buying other assets such as precious metals. The US dollar will always vary in its value, so the best way to protect yourself is to put your money in performing assets that will appreciate.

What Credit Score You Need to Buy Full-Service Rental Properties

Your credit score isn’t everything, but it can be important if you’re trying to get traditional financing to buy rental properties. Most lenders want to see a credit score above 620 in order to qualify for a loan. However, there are options available to investors with lower credit scores.

One solution you may want to consider is non-recourse financing. A non-recourse loan is a business loan that is based on the qualification of the asset. Because of this, there is no personal guarantee and your credit score isn’t a factor. I would suggest scheduling a free call with our team to see if a non-recourse loan is a fit for you.

How to Use a VA Loan to Invest in Real Estate

A VA loan, or Veterans Affairs loan, can be a great way to buy real estate. However, this type of loan requires that you live (or intend to live) in the property. The benefits of a VA loan include low interest rates and no down payment. If you have access to a VA loan, you may consider using it to buy a performing asset like a rental property. You’ll just need to be creative in your strategy. Friend of the show, Michael Foster, has an excellent book on this topic. Pick up your copy of Military House Hacking here.
