the Big Idea
Nearly every aspect of the financial markets are changing.
This is especially true in the retirement market.
And for those who hope to retire early.
What's different today?
You will need at least $5 million in savings if you want to retire early.
According to Suzie Orman. And that’s just to keep up with inflation which has averaged over 2.1% for the last two decades. Want to bet it won’t go higher?
The typical working-age American has NO retirement savings.
The median retirement account balance is &0 among all working individuals. And only $40,000 for workers who have accumulated any savings in a retirement account.
Your 401(k) won't save you from avoiding drawdowns in your account.
It is critical to avoid major market losses during the accumulation phase of your net worth. Luckily there are many ways to avoid major “mean reverting” events in the market. Buy and hold is not one of them!
The Average American's income hasn't changed
How Big is the Problem?
According to the National Institute of Retirement Security, 60% of all working-age Americans do not own assets in a retirement account
What's the Solution?
Diversification into assets that are easy to fund and easy to manage.
Cash is liquid but does not provide any return. In face, through inflation it’s value is steadily decreasing.
Traditional Fixed Income accounts pay very little real returns due to inflation.
Investing in the stock market always subjects your account to market crashes of 50%.
Gold and silver are subject to wild swings in value while creating no useable cash until sold.
Ownership of physical land and property. And they aren’t making any more of that! But wait…we said easy to fund and easy to mange!
Notes are both easy to fund and easy to manage!
Traditional Real Estate Investing
Investing in Real Estate Notes
What's a Note?
A Real Estate Note is a mortgage-backed promissory note that is used by the home buyer to finance the purchase of a property or house. It is then sold by the banks to hedge funds, to increase the bank’s reserves, and then to us at a discount.
The income stream is now ours.
As you learn about notes you will be able to evaluate the best ones. Then you purchase the note, at a discount, and receive the monthly income stream. You can sell your note at anytime to another investor
The note you purchased is protected by the house/property, via the mortgage. So if the cash flow stops you can convert it into the physical house/property then sell it, rent it, or turn it into another note.
More likely the property will eventually sold and you will collect the entire remaining balance on the note. Another great strategy is to sell the payment stream to another investor while keeping ownership of the note.
