7. Understand Top 5 Reasons To Invest In Real Estate

The first thing to understand here is that property is illiquid a.k.a a hard asset

It means you can’t immediately liquidate it into cash. 

But if you are a long-term investor, understand market cycles and the power of compound effect, it won’t nag you because of the following top 5 reasons.

Real Estate Investing 101 Book Review - Top 5 Reasons To Invest In Real Estate

a. Property Is Real

It consists of:

  • bricks,
  • walls,
  • steel,
  • decoration,
  • stones,
  • plaster,
  • flooring,
  • roof,
  • chimney…

yes it is real, so you can touch it, smell it or feel it…

And you have full control over it.

b. Real Estate Diversifies Your Portfolio

Look, diversification is a crucial investment strategy.

For that reason, you may diversify across residential or commercial properties. 

Or if you don’t want to own it, there are other categories.

Of course, it is essential to study and go deeper into them, but the point here is you have limitless options to diversify your portfolio

c. Real Estate Offers Inflation Cushion


$1,000 today purchases more than it will ten or twenty years from now…

It means purchasing power decreases.

  • So first, you have to protect your money.
  • Second, let money work hard for you to cover the inflation rate and much more. 

d. It Brings Steady Return

It means a real estate asset is actionable, productive that brings regular cash flow into your pocket every month practically forever.

Moreover, real estate appreciates over time.

That said, if you hold it as long as possible, your net worth will grow. 

e. Real Estate Creates Wealth

The truth is, it doesn’t happen overnight. It might take decades or generations to build wealth.

So it’s only up to you to decide whether you want to have let’s say one property or build a legacy for generations in your life. 

What would be your decision?

Leave us a comment below…

Now, let’s talk about another book-idea strategy to execute today from the Real Estate Investing 101 book…

6. Master Key IDEAL Advantages That You Won’t Get With Any Other Classes

So what does it exactly mean when the book says:

Real estate investing is IDEAL?

It is an acronym that has circulated here for decades. 

And it explains several ways how you can accumulate and grow wealth

These ways are:

  • Income
  • Depreciation
  • Equity 
  • Appreciation
  • Leverage

As you can see, that’s the reason why real estate investing is IDEAL.

Because these five criteria will help you accelerate your wealth-building strategy. 

The next idea-strategy to learn is…

5. Always Be Aware Of 4 Factors That Affect Real Estate Investing

Every type of investment has its market cycle

It could be bonds, commodities, gold, stocks, so do real estate.

Usually, when you buy your home, you don’t take attention to it.

But when you are a property investor, you need to understand the following four factors.

Real Estate Investing 101 Book Review - 4 Factors That Affect Real Estate Investing
a. The Economy

…which in every country is rising and falling.

The problem is that it isn’t predictable.

But if you study it, you will find out that each cycle has four stages.

  • Expansion,
  • Peak,
  • Contraction,
  • and Trough.

And when you understand it, you become a professional investor because of your well-timed investment decision.

The other three factors are:

b. Interest Rates On a Mortgage
c. Demographic Data

…that allows to make a wise decision on what type of property to buy. 

d. Government Actions

…that practically have an enormous impact on demand and supply and ultimately on property values. 

And it leads me to the fourth idea-strategy of the real estate investing 101 book… 

4. Before You Buy – Do Your Homework On Each Deal With Strong Profit Potential

Real Estate Investing 101 Book Review - Do Your Homework On Each Deal

The first question may be, what type of real estate do you want to invest in?

Residential? Commercial?

The first thing here must be remembered: 

“As a real estate investor, you are in the game of making money. It means choosing the right property class is crucial for you.”

Therefore, you need to put together a game plan. 

You have to know your:

  • criteria,
  • requirements,
  • market,
  • financing,
  • price ceiling,
  • strategy on what you intend to do with those properties,
  • risk tolerance,
  • and exit strategy. 

Most importantly, know how to calculate your return on your investments.

For example, what is gross and net operating income, cash flow, and so on…

It simply means you have to prepare your plan and do your homework thoroughly in order to be always cash flow positive. 

3. Put Together a Team To Maximize Your Success

So in this step is the right time to take action and start executing.

This was the first actionable step in how I got started.

I began developing a long-term relationship to put together a core team that comprises:

  • Real estate agent,
  • lawyer,
  • insurance agent,
  • mortgage broker for traditional financing,
  • connections to other financing methods such as private money or hard money lenders,
  • and of course a property manager with a handyman on demand.

You see…

“Investing in real estate is a team business. You can’t handle everything on your own.

One of the most important Book-idea strategy that you need to learn and always pay attention to is…

2. Reliable Tenants Build Your Wealth

Real Estate Investing 101 Book Review - Reliable Tenants Build Your Wealth

This is big, bigger than you may expect. 

I already stated in my previous video 7+1 Compound Interest Investments That Multiply Your Wealth the following fact and I want to reiterate it. 

“The most important thing is – you have to take care of your reliable tenants. Because tenants build your wealth.”

But I know what you may be saying now… 

“I don’t want to deal with tenants and being a landlord.”

Listen, neither do I.

For that reason, I built my dependable team to do the job.  

So as a professional property owner or real estate investor, you need to delegate. 


“You are in this game to build wealth with a real estate portfolio. Your job is to control your net worth and delegate others.”


the last book-idea strategy of the Real Estate Investing 101 book is…

1. Learn To Pay Fewer Taxes 

Real Estate Investing 101 Book Review - Learn To Pay Fewer Taxes

Equally important is that your investment not just produces profits, but taxes will gobble up or slice it significantly if you don’t have a proper tax education. 

For example,

I try to understand more about property taxes on the market where I have my portfolio. Because there are several tax exemptions or special real estate tax rules to pay fewer taxes. 

So as a result, I add to my dependable team another key team member, which is a CPA or certified public accountant with rental property experience. 

So I recommend doing your own research within the market where you invest and be fundamentally familiar with tax rules that will help you keep more money to reinvest.

Because in every country there are many loopholes to take advantage of if you know where to search for the right of legitimate advice.

Time to Execute Massive Action With Real Estate Investing 101

To conclude this video,

The best part of real estate is that it frees up your time because when your portfolio is large enough, it covers your expenses. 

So if you’ve been obsessed as I was to find strategies for getting started in real estate, I highly recommend picking up a copy. 

And it means that the Real Estate Investing 101 book is excellent for beginners.

Because real estate is a proven wealth generator to build true wealth.

And ultimately true wealth is holistic wealth.
