I firmly believe we are all budding entrepreneurs. We want to control our destiny, work for ourselves and feel good about making a difference in the world. Real estate investing is an excellent way to stretch one’s entrepreneurial muscles.
I have invested in a total of 125 individual transactions through various real estate crowdfunding platforms, with an average of $10,000 per investment. Almost two-thirds of these transactions have been fully completed (principal and interest) with very good monetary gains. Of the 80 or so completed deals, the average return has been slightly over 10%.
The biggest investment most people will ever make in their lifetime is their personal residence. Buying a home is a rite of financial passage for many. It means breaking the bonds of paying rent to someone else and paying yourself by building equity of your own.
