5 Basic Questions Answered

  1. Differentiate. Begin the wave, the tsunami; it’s unstoppable.

What do other investors do? What kind of competition do you have? Do you know anybody who’s doing fix and flip wholesale, foreclosures, short sales? Maybe they’re doing just rent homes or apartments or storage units or notes. That’s exactly what most people do when it comes to real estate investing.

Every RIA that you go to, every meeting that you attend, that’s what the competition is doing, and you’re competing directly head-to-head with them. I understand it’s camaraderie, it’s about teammates. The truth is that you’re competing with them.

How many people do you know that are doing assisted living? Very few. How many people do you know that are aging in your area? Everybody.

  1. Residential Assisted Living. The time is NOW!

Why residential assisted living? Why now, and why you?Tweet this!

It gives you what you want: the ability to have significant residual income, the ability to help other people, the ability to provide for your long-term care and leave a legacy.

  1. How will you do this? 

You could own the real estate, and lease it to somebody else, get twice the fair market rent.Tweet this!

Good choice.

If nothing else, do one of these homes so you can make lots of money today, help people today, retire, give the money away if you don’t need it, and then you’ve got a solution for yourself when it’s time for you to move into the home. Don’t leave your kids with a burden. Leave them with a solution that produces cashflow even after you’re gone.

This is the legacy that we talk about.

  1. How fast you could do this?


  1. Well the slowest way is to buy land, get a plan, go to the city. It’s will take you a year or two or three.

  3. Even faster, buy an existing licensed home, and we’ll show you exactly how to do that. Even faster, own the real estate and lease it to the operator.
  4. Fastest of all, be the lender, just the private lender who lends money on the real estate or the business.
