Real estate investing, doubling down on winning strategies, investing in your personal growth — there are lots of ways real estate professionals can invest in their future. And with all the uncertainty over the past few years, we’re guessing you’ve put a lot of thought into your future. That’s why we asked you to share with us how you are (or plan to) invest in your future. Here are your responses:

  • I haven’t started.
  • By investing in real estate. Flips, buy and holds and plan to start wholesaling. 
  • Investing in single-family rental properties and apartments; implementing new tax strategies; spending my time on the business fundamental basics that have always worked and implementing new ideas such as adding more video into my marketing.
  • Back when “disruptor” was the big buzzword, I went to law school. 
  • I’m a residential agent. Since we don’t have company 401K plans, I’m investing in the best investment one can make: Real estate! I purchased an eight-unit apartment building in Plant City, Florida, just outside of Tampa. The unit is currently cash-flowing $3100 (after expenses) a month with another $600 in potential rent increase when several leases renew next year. Since I did a value add cash out refi strategy, I was able to recoup most of my initial investment and create $400k+ in equity to add to my net worth. The best investments pay you every month! 

Now it’s your turn. Share your best investment strategies in the comments below.
