How to Start Investing with $10k or Less

While $10k is not enough for a down payment on a rental property, it’s a great starting point. If I had $10k to invest, I would consider two different routes. The first would be investing in real estate notes through Connect Invest. This avenue allows for high returns and you can invest with as little as $500 with time commitments as short as six months. If your goal is to eventually buy a rental property, I think this option is a smart way to build up your existing funds. Another idea would be to invest in precious metals like gold and silver. Either way, I personally would not want $10k tied up in US dollars.

How to Stay Focused on Your Wealth Building Goals

Getting focused on your goal is a critical component of reaching any goal. And when it comes to investing, I can personally relate to getting caught up in shiny object syndrome. My advice would be to seek clarity. Sit down and map out your goals, and how you plan to achieve them. For me, investing in residential buy and hold properties has been the most successful, so I try not to stray from this proven system! Choose one path, and follow that course of action repeatedly.

What to Do with Underperforming Rental Properties

If you’re doing your due diligence in regularly nurturing your portfolio, you’re likely to experience a scenario in which you have an underperforming rental property… but this is not a bad situation to be in! In fact, it’s a great opportunity to increase your returns and upgrade your cash flow. The best thing to do in this scenario is to utilize a 1031 exchange, because it allows you to trade in your property without taking a tax hit. For more, see this recent video on 1031 exchanges.
