3 Simple Reasons to Get Involved in Real Estate Investing

It doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor; there’s no denying the fact that investing in real estate can be an incredibly fruitful decision for both your short term and long term financial future. Even if you’re undecided about investing in a commercial or residential property, just showing interest and thinking about how you can invest in real estate will lead to positive results. With modern-day tools such as the HappyNest app and other technological advances, there has never been a better time to get started in your journey of real estate investment. Still not convinced? Here are three simple benefits to getting involved in the world of real estate investing.

Real estate investments create passive income for non accredited investors

Have you ever been tired of working at the same job day in and day out? If you’re like most people, then the answer is “yes”. With monthly bills to pay and unexpected expenses, the majority of people can never seem to get ahead on their finances. Thankfully, it helps to know that there are many options a person can pursue on their path toward financial freedom, and real estate investing is perhaps the easiest and most lucrative among them.

Simply put, passive income refers to any income you receive NOT generated by your physical labor. Sure, it may take some time and effort upfront to establish your footing in the world of real estate investing, but once you are set up, the passive income from your efforts will pay off over time. Add in the ease of using a smartphone app such as HappyNest, which allows you to invest in real estate with just $10, then investing in real estate is a no brainer for anyone looking to create passive income for themselves or their family.

Real estate investing can help you reach your financial goals

Sometimes our financial goals seem nearly impossible to reach. At times, months and years can pass by without any real progress made to reach them. If you limit yourself to one source of income, then it’s quite unlikely that you’ll ever be able to graduate to higher levels of regular monthly income. That is why so many people have realized the life-changing power of real estate investing. When you apply the right mindset and willpower, real estate investing can help you reach your financial goals much faster and easier than you would with a traditional lifestyle.

Let’s think about a typical savings strategy. Say you save $500 per month in a traditional savings account; it will accrue interest at a low rate, 0.06% APY on average. On the flip side, say you were to take that same $500 and invest it into a commercial real estate portfolio using the HappyNest app. That same amount of money is projected to grow at a much quicker rate (HappyNest targets a 6% annual dividend). In this way, you can accelerate your timeline toward financial freedom.

With real estate investment apps, investing in real estate has never been easier

Roughly 84% who have invested in real estate indicated that they would make another real estate investment. Finally, you should know that there has never been a better time to start investing in real estate than right now. Not only do real estate investment apps allow you to get started with a small amount of money, but they make the investment process easy and convenient. When you choose to use an app like the HappyNest app, you are provided constant access to your investment portfolio and a range of tools that can help you make even better investment choices in the future.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re new to real estate investing or not; it’s clear to see that there are many benefits to getting started. Not sure how to begin? Contact us today for more information.

Playing Lotto Vs. Real Estate Investing

Have you ever wondered why there are no income restrictions on who can play the lottery, but until recently, only the wealthy could invest in commercial real estate?

We’re conditioned to believe it’s a worthy investment (and even fun) to throw cash away on something with odds of 1 in 302,575,350, yet we’re restricted from accessing most real estate investing platforms that have much better odds, because of their high minimum investments. The math doesn’t add up.

The Washington Post reported that the average amount spent by each American on lotto tickets annually has doubled since 1995. There was over $72.7 billion spent on lottery tickets in 2016 which amounts to approximately $600 a year for the average American lotto player. The truth is, the lottery is little more than a tax on middle to working class people seeking a better financial future.

Slogans like “you gotta be in it to win it” and “a dollar and a dream” are created to make you think the lotto can make you rich, when in reality they’re just masking the truth that it won’t.

It’s time for us to get smart and stop paying into the system!

If that same lotto player was to invest $600 a year (or $50 a month) into private market commercial real estate, in just 10 short years, they would have accumulated approximately over $10,000! (That sounds like a lot better deal than losing $6,000, which is what most lottery players will experience.)

Perhaps the real estate investors seeking high-quality commercial real estate investments have it all figured out. You don’t have to be a real estate industry expert to experience the same results.

Our message is simple. Skip the lotto, invest in high-quality commercial real estate, and grow a nest egg. You’ll make all your lotto-playing-friends rethink their strategy too.

Now who’s in it to win it?
