Is Real Estate Investing Right for Us? 

Have you ever watched one of those shows on HGTV and DIY where they renovate and then sell the homes – Desert Flippers, Good  Bones, and my mom’s favorite – Texas Flip and Move

The transformation of those places can be incredible, but part the draw too – at least for me – is waiting until the end to see how much they sold it for and seeing the profit they take home. 

I don’t know about you, we do think about the potential of real estate. 

If you’re a family working towards financial freedom, one of the things to consider is diversifying your income. 

For some families investing in real estate has been the way to go, but is that the right choice for you? 

That’s something we’re actually considering now. I don’t know about you, but before I put any money in, I want to have a clear idea of how things work so we can see if it’s the best use of our money and fits into the big picture for us. 

This is why I’m so happy Louis Guillama is back on the show. He’s the Vice President of Real Estate Operations at Coastal Credit Union and he’s had decades of experience as a real estate investor. 

In this episode we’ll get into:

  • The various ways you can start investing in real estate 
  • How to financial prepare so if you decide to go in, you have a solid foundation
  • Resources and ways to dig in deeper and learn more

Let’s get started!
