  • Do you have an existing 401(k) that you were once excited about but now feel like you’re stuck with it, as it either comes with high fees or has a high expense ratio? Well, you’re not alone. The White Coat Investor talks more about this and shares helpful steps to better manage your retirement account in the article – What To Do With A Crummy 401(k).
  • You’ve probably heard the saying, “It takes money to make money.” However, that isn’t entirely true when it comes to making money in real estate, as investing in real estate has a unique advantage over other investment vehicles. On that note, the author of Spark Rental discusses an important concept to optimize your returns in the post – How to Earn “Infinite Returns” on Real Estate Investments.
  • As real estate investors, do you often find yourself waiting to invest until you have saved enough cash for the down payment, or do you leverage other financing strategies?

The Darwinian Doctor answers those questions and more in the article – 9 Creative Financing Strategies for Real Estate Investment.
  • Generally speaking, most investors and financial experts would advise you to continue investing through all phases of the economic cycle. But given the current market conditions, does it really make sense to continue investing in real estate to grow your portfolio?
