Today, I answer the frequently asked question - "how many investment properties do I need to retire?)

This just may be the wrong question because the number of properties you need before quitting your job depends on your assets value and how hard your money is working.

To become financially independent you need to build a cash machine by growing a substantial asset base of high growth properties. These are the steps you take.

  1. Build your asset base
  2. Transition to lower loan to value ratios
  3. Start living off your property portfolio

In my mindset moment, I chat with best-selling author Tom Corley about a study that concluded that we are hardwired to be miserable.  

Today’s discussion includes:

  • How many properties you need to retire
  • The principles of real estate investing
  • Calculating how big an asset base you require to get the income you need to live off your property portfolio
  • How to create a cash machine with your investment properties
  • Having the right finance strategy
  • Having an asset protection plan to see you through the ups and downs
  • Following a known, proven and trusted real estate investing strategy

Mindset Message: We are always striving to improve and better ourselves.

  • If human beings are going to be successful, we can’t be happy all the time or we won’t push ourselves to achieve more.
