Is it possible to invest 100k with a 6 month to 1 year return?

2 Replies

If you had 50 - 100k to invest but you needed to get the money back in 6 months - 1 year, what would be your best strategy? And why?

Would you buy an undervalued property and do the BRRRR strategy? Would you do a flip?

What if you were a complete newbie? Would you dive in yourself or would you partner up?

Hey @Rafael Loza

Seems like we're practically neighbors! I'm over in Newport Beach, so not that far. 

To answer your question, I personally would go ahead and partner with an experienced Investor that has figured out their market. If you need the money within 6 months to a year, having it in a BRRRR or Flip which you are doing yourself and is your first ever, will be stressful, overwhelming and you never know if first time mistakes will cost you your profit.

Lending your capital to an investor who will use it to flip and brrrr properties throughout the course of the 6 months-a year will guarantee you profit from your investment and will limit your risk. You can even lend the capital and make it contingent that you would like to learn during the process, which will help you in the long run. Because now you are a passive investor earning 8-12% on your money and learning how to flip and brrrr properly, which will possibly save you from making first timer mistakes when doing your own projects. If you think about it, you're getting paid to learn from an experienced investor, rather than paying a "guru" or a coach.

Terms you should probably expect would be between 8-12%, although others, like ourselves when we do this, will do 9-12%. It just depends on the amount of capital and the time frame that is given to use the capital.
