Retire on Real Estate

Book Description

Think beyond the nest egg . . .

Do you know how you’ll fund your retirement? With pensions slashed, savings slim, and Social Security insufficient and unpredictable, most people won’t have nearly enough money to last them.

But a sustainable solution lies in plain sight: rental property. Retire on Real Estate helps anyone, of any age, take advantage of this often overlooked income generator. Written by a seasoned real estate investor and landlord, the book exposes the cracks in most retirement portfolios, opens your eyes to the benefits of rental income, and lays out a complete plan of action, including how to:

  • Get started — by purchasing property or converting your residence into a rental
  • Reduce the risk of vacancies, repairs, and problem tenants
  • Calculate cash flow
  • Spot smart investments
  • Choose the right mortgage
  • Consider out-of-the-box financing options
  • Transform liabilities into assets
  • Stabilize your finances
  • Trade up to more profitable properties
  • And more

Whether you want to diversify with a single property or self-fund your entire retirement, real estate is an investment that pays you back for the rest of your life.
