I am tired of seeing a room full of wealthy investors where so very few are women. And we know you are tired of this as well.
It's SOOO possible, and I'm tired of the excuses we make that keep us from getting in the game. Some of it is due to fear. Much of it is due to myths and misinformation, and not knowing what's possible!
That's why I've written this 40-page guide and am giving it away for free right now - to show you how you can start to invest in real estate even if you have little to no money, little to no time, and don't want to ever deal with tenants.
In my new guide, I've shared 12 strategies:
-3 that are sweat equity strategies (for the goddess who is willing to roll up her sleeves, but wants to invest little to none of her own money).
-3 are passive investing strategies (for the goddess who wants her money working for her and doesn't want to spend time finding or managing properties)
-3 are buy-and-hold strategies (this is for the goddess who wants to invest in a more...
As a black woman in this country, in the city that I love being looted and burned down, I feel I can't be silent and yet I genuinely don't know what to say.
I only like to share if what I say can provide some measure of hope, peace, inspiration, or understanding.
Every time I start to even think about writing something, I begin to cry. My eyes are puffy from it.
Sunday morning, I went to the grocery store. My original choice, Trader Joe's, had been looted and was closed. I went to Ralph's. The windows were all boarded up, and there was a huge police presence (it was a Ralph's right next to a police station).
I wanted to say something to the police officers: "I think the majority of you are good people and doing your best to serve and protect. Thank you for putting your life on the line, and working to restore order." Every time I started to open my mouth, I started to cry. I didn't want to break down in the middle of the store, so I kept quiet...
There are three main reasons I believe why more women aren’t investing in real estate:
1) Many simply have not considered the incredible advantages of real estate, or that they could ever participate as a real estate investor.
Perhaps they haven’t considered that there is an option for creating income other than trading their time for money. Or maybe they just think it’s something that “very rich” people do, and it’s not something they could ever afford.
2) They understand real estate investing in the abstract but do not know how to apply those concepts to their own work or investing.
They understand the concepts of real estate investment, but they don’t know how to do it. They don’t know what steps to take, or where to go in order to gain the necessary knowledge.
3) Last but certainly not least, they understand how it works, but they’re afraid they’re going to lose money.
They have heard of people making lots of money in...
There are 3 important aspects of a property you need to evaluate… these are the same for almost every investment property.
The first aspect of a property is its physical characteristics. This includes things like:
• square footage,
• number of units/rooms/bathrooms/etc.
• amenities (stainless steel appliances, gym, pool, etc)
• class of property
• property condition
• location, etc.
The size, characteristics, and location will determine who wants to be your tenant, how much they’re willing to pay, what kind of appreciation you’ll be able to get. When you’re assessing a property you want to consider all of these characteristics and what it means for your rental price.
You will also want to assess how you could improve the property to it’s highest and best use or to get the highest and best rents. Sometimes the best...
If you’re a Mompreneur, you should be investing in real estate. In this article, I’ll share 5 big reasons why.
But first, how would I know?
I am an entrepreneur, mom of three, and I have been a real estate investor for 14 years now. I started with duplexes and single family home flips and my husband and I are now invested in apartment complexes and mobile home parks. With our investors, we own over 1200 rental doors in 6 states.
Real estate investment has been great for my family’s finances and lifestyle.
Even though there are surprisingly few women in this space, real estate investment is a wonderful side-business for women.
As an avid investor and real estate investment mentor, I’m always striving to improve my skills and knowledge in this field, so I attend a lot of real estate conferences and seminars. When I’m in these conferences, often less than 10% of the attendees are women.
It’s surprising because real estate is...
