Building a house vs. buying a house—which makes more sense for today’s investor? With home prices rising faster than many of us have ever seen before, more and more real estate investors are asking whether or not building their rentals is a smarter idea. And who can blame them? Building a rental property can seem like a great way to minimize acquisition costs, but this is only true in certain circumstances, which many investors just won’t fit into.
Welcome to Live Takes where Henry Washington, investor and “On The Market” guest host, joins David Greene for a live real estate Q&A. David and Henry invite four investors onto the show today to talk about each of their passive income predicaments. These topics include buying vs. building a home, how to get out of a bad BRRRR, whether or not it’s too late in life to invest in real estate, and how to invest out-of-country.
