Real estate Investing beats mutual funds
I fined my mutual fund for good reason. A few years back, My husband and I pulled our money out of the company 401K and moved it to a self-directed 401k. We sold every share of stock we owned and cashed in all our stock options. I received a call from Fidelity trying to talk me out of it. He said, “Mrs. Wall, we have a team of financial advisers that can help you invest your money. If you like real estate, can I have someone talk to you about REIT’s.”
I replied, “I will listen to you if you can meet my minimum conditions. Are you ready?” He said yes. I went on, ” If you can guarantee me a minimum of a 20% cash-on-cash return, in cash, tax free year over year, then I will listen to you.”
He said, “Mrs. Wall, you know I cannot do that.”
“Then what qualified you or your team to give me financial advice. Please send me my money.”
Mutual funds cannot pay you cash the way real estate does.

If you want to retire, you need an income stream. You need hard currency every month to pay bills. Unless you are already wealthy, you will not save enough principle to live on at 5% return. The minimum I will consider for an investment is 20% cash-on-cash. I have one passive investment that pays 30% per year. Do the math. If you have $500,000 earning 20%, that is $100,000 per year. If that same principal is earning 5%, you have $25,000 per year. Do you like apples? How about them apples?
Real estate investments have great returns mostly tax free
Municipal bonds? Give me a break. I might as well put my money in lottery tickets. My investment properties not only make my house payment and utility payments each and every month, I do not pay taxes on the money. I have some property rented Section 8, so your taxes pay me every month and I do not pay income taxes on it. The money hits my bank every month as regular as a German train. I love our government and tax code. I look forward to the first of the month. My mailbox money arrives.
