How To Buy Multiple Homes In The US And Secure Your Future

Remote Controlled Retirement Riches How to Make This A Reality
My first job was as a research engineer at Hewlett Packard labs. It was fine but when I looked at the financial profile of people who had been in similar jobs for decades, I was not impressed. It was not what I wanted for myself and my future. These people had worked hard for years and didn’t have a lot to show for it. So it was in the 1980s that I first started to buy homes in Vegas. My Silicon Valley colleagues laughed at me. But soon, those same Silicon Valley engineers also started investing in real estate in Vegas!

You can buy anywhere.

There is this unwritten rule somewhere that if you invest in property, that property should be within a 30-minute driving distance from you. Pardon my bluntness, but that is rubbish! You can buy property anywhere in the United States, wherever else you live. I did it! I worked in Silicon Valley and within a little over a year, I had bought 22 rental homes in Las Vegas! And those same Silicon Valley guys who laughed at me had to eat their words. Soon I was leading a group of about 20 of those engineers, and over just a few years we had bought 250 rental homes!
Soon property prices in the area started to go up and our investments appreciated. So then the whole group changed their orientation and decided to invest in the Phoenix area. Until about the year 2000 this was the place to invest. I would not advise buying in those areas now, because it isn’t cost effective. But I will tell you where to buy and how.

Anyone can invest in real estate.

Now if you’re a busy professional, you probably feel that you don’t have the time or the knowhow to make wise investments or to look after those investments. The thing is, you don’t have to! I will tell you the best areas to invest in today, in a way that you get passive income in the form of rent from homes that you own. Choose quality homes in good areas of towns in states that are going to see property prices appreciate in years to come.
The next question is, how would you afford the mortgage and how long would you keep paying it. Well, here the 30-year loan is your best friend. It is a gift that keeps giving. The amazing thing is that this makes your future inflation proof. So let me tell you, buying single family homes right now for securing your financial future is not daunting. The opposite is daunting! How can you afford not to invest in real estate? Like I tell my clients, if you want to send your kid to Harvard, buy one home. If you want a Porsche in your driveway, buy two!
Watch this video where I crunch some numbers for you so that you understand more about property prices, rental incomes as well as your outlays in terms of insurance, property taxes, repairs, property management and so on. This is where my decades of experience really counts – let it count for you! Watch it here.

The Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever

I was interviewed by Joe Fairless on his Podcast “The Best Real Estate Investing Advice Ever”.

You can find my interview on Joe Fairless’ podcast website:  https://joefairless.com/best-ever-show-2/

My interview can be found under:  JF2152 or via a search on my name.

The interview title is:

JF2152: Which US Markets Shine for Rental Homes and Why With Adiel Gorel

Joe was a great interviewer, and I enjoyed our talk. I didn’t only discuss the best markets. I talked about the awesome power of the FIXED 30-year financing we get only in the U.S. (it doesn’t exist in other countries, to the best of my knowledge).

Getting a mortgage with a fixed rate means inflation becomes your best friend, as it constantly erodes the real value of your monthly payment, as well as your loan balance. You usually don’t have to wait for 30 years. About half way through the loan term, the balance of the loan usually looks like a joke, and so does the monthly payment. I go into more detail about this important (and overlooked) point in articles I had written, in my books, and in my television show, the PBS Special “Remote Control Retirement Riches”. I’d be happy to send you the articles, as well as a link to the PBS show. Just email us at info@icgre.com.

I talk about the future financial transformation that buying new single family homes as rentals in the right markets. You buy in a good area. Local brokers help you and local property managers handle the home for you.

Over the past 35+ years, thousands of investors have bought over 10,000 rental homes in the best markets in the country. We have people from across the ocean investing as well. Clearly, the idea is that local managers do the heavy lifting for you. Now you can be as busy as you probably are, and still build a future-changing portfolio.

We started with me as a busy Silicon Valley engineer. I needed managers to handle the properties for me. Now they help you as well.

Joe asked me towards the end about losing money. I forgot to tell the story of how I “lost” money by simply having to learn the “art of doing nothing”. It took a few recessions for me to finally learn that when a recession is in progress, the best action for the owner of a rental home to do is “nothing” (the hardest thing for us to do , or “not do”).

Until I learned how to do nothing, I got rid of homes during recessions, and while that was not a direct loss, it prevented me from benefiting from those homes in the future, to the tune of a lot of money.

I enjoyed the interview very much, and I hope you find it useful. I hope it can change your future.

Banks’ Loan Forbearance Under The CARES Act

Tenants, Stimulus, and Inflation

One of the worries landlords have these days, is that due to the Covid-19 situation, some tenants who may lose their job, will be unable to pay rents.

We have already addressed this (banks also allow leeway in mortgage payments etc.). However one point to consider is the following.

Unemployment benefits have been beefed up aggressively by the government. Once people who are unemployed or partially employed start getting their unemployment benefits (hopefully any minute now), and due to the enhanced payments, many people will earn about as much as they did while they were employed. Especially in the median income territory, where a lot of our tenants live.

This is something to consider, as the fears may have been over-blown. The unemployment payments are slated to be serious, and make a big difference. The idea behind them is that unemployed or partially employed people, could pay rent, buy food and gas etc.

On the issue of the government stimulus overall, the US government has just come out with a stimulus of over 2 trillion dollars. The Fed is also injecting liquidity into the financial markets, to the tune what appears to be 4 trillion dollars. The Government is already seeking a second stimulus (possibly having to do with massive infrastructure once people can be out and work), also seemingly to be about 2 trillion dollars.

With all these trillions of dollars essentially just being “printed by the government”, any economist will tell you that it will very likely create inflation. Possibly a strong one, once things are recovered.

At the same time, interest rates are close to being the lowest in history.

Once again, you can buy a single family home now, with a 30-year fixed rate loan at maybe the lowest rate ever. Then the home price is likely to go quite a bit higher just due to inflation (not even counting real appreciation). The mortgage does NOT go up with inflation, of course. Thus, as I always say, the 30-year loan gets eroded by inflation, and your equity gets built up faster thanks to inflation. Hard assets benefits during inflationary times, and are usually the safe havens investors go to. Single family homes are not only a hard asset , but an undeniable necessity (as opposed to office buildings, for example, since people can work from home. From HOME! Yes they need a home). Also, they are the asset class on which the fixed rate loan, which never changes with inflation for as long as 30 years, can be obtained.

When inflation hits hard, you will likely feel pretty smart having bought single family home investments, with fixed rate loans.
