POV - Why do you believe in real estate investing?
Please share your "Why?"
Here's mine: Personally, I believe in real estate investing because I don't believe in job security.
This has been my experience...I have worked since I was 15 years old, mostly for small businesses and I have had paychecks bounce and have shown up to the office to find the electric bill wasn't paid and the lights and phone systems were down, to name a few. I dedicated over 20 years to these businesses and learned that I cannot rely on a paycheck.
Real estate had been my "side gig" for many years, as an agent. I've been fortunate to work with investors and have learned a lot from helping them over the years. I've studied the market and seen many shifts and changes over the last 18 years. I've also seen my clients investments grow and many times thought, I wish I'd bought an investment property for myself, then...then...then...
I see owning property as a more secure source of income in the long run.
So, Why do you believe in real estate investing?
