How to Avoid Living Below Your Means and Leverage Debt

• 36 min

Join our live, virtual event for Alabama income properties tomorrow at: Learn a lesson from a story about when I was a landlord. My neighbor was a fourplex owner-occupant, just like me. We built a fence together. He told me that he can’t wait to get his building paid off. Don’t pay down your mortgage debt. In most cases, you can invest those dollars elsewhere for a higher return. I discuss two things build wealth: 1) Leverage. 2) Borrowing against your assets, tax-free. You don’t have substantial equity in your properties because you paid them down. You have substantial equity because its value has appreciated. Today, you can report tenant rent payments to the credit reporting agencies. Alabama has low property prices and the nation’s 2nd-lowest property taxes. GRE Investment Coach, Aundrea Newbern, MBA, joins me.  Join our live event for Alabama income properties Tuesday, January 16th at 8 PM Eastern. The provider is offering 5.99% interest rates and 3% PM fees on your first three properties.
