The Millennial Rental Tidal Wave

Relative to earlier generations, Millennials are struggling by making less money, incurring more debt, experiencing underemployment, facing lower income growth trajectories, and having a harder time saving money. Homeownership is largely outside of their reach.

Apartment Investment Opportunity

Many NestEggRx readers want to see behind the curtain of how investments through private real estate investment companies work. They want to see the business plan, the expected returns, how we look at markets and submarkets, and most of all they want access to these deals.

Hanging Up The White Coat

There are a lot of doctors who build their entire financial plan around earned income and their own labor. They don't think to build stable streams of passive income outside of medicine and therefore they get stuck in this bloated system without any options.

Residency For Apartment Investors

And you are ALWAYS taught by someone who knows how to do it well - sometimes the best in the country. In reality, it took far more supervised repetitions to master these procedures, but the concept was the same. Doctors learned to be doctors using the apprentice model (residency). And if you go back in time, this is how mankind…

This Doctor’s Grizzly Confession

I much prefer investing in multifamily real estate in which everyone can be a winner. The tenants win because they have a clean, safe place to live. The employees win because they have a stable income that puts food on their table. The sellers win when they sell for a reasonable profit. The buyers win when they take over and…

Doctors – Not For Sale

I started NestEggRx to do just that. I educate others about this asset class because I have directly experienced the benefits and I strongly believe that all physicians should learn how this asset class works and determine whether it's a fit for them.

Multifamily Investing Using an IRA

When discussing IRAs, most people think of traditional IRAs versus Roth IRAs. The difference between these two comes down to taxes and when you pay them. With a traditional IRA, you contribute pre-tax money and grow it tax-free. The tax hit comes at the back-end when you withdraw it.

Why My Dad Helped Me Ditch School

When I think about time, I think about a concept called opportunity cost. Opportunity cost relates choices with scarcity. In this case, the resource that is scarce is time. Choosing to spend your time working for money has a non-monetary cost associated with it.

Better Investments – Why Life Insurance Companies Invest in Commercial Multifamily Real Estate

The AAA rated life insurance companies do carry a small percentage of stock holdings in their portfolios but it is insignificant in comparison to their real estate exposure. For them, commercial multifamily real estate represents the Goldilocks scenario in which they can obtain better results than their bond holdings without having to take on the significantly greater risk of the…

Why I Became A Polygamist

Even the process of acquiring apartments can be likened to relationships. First you develop your criteria for what you are looking for and then you start evaluating properties for possible acquisition (dating). It is not uncommon to have to look at several pretenders before finding that one contender that is worth marrying.

Apartment Investing For Doctors

My last blog post discussed two ways that you can profit from your skills without having to actually purchase any property. Both bird dogging and wholesaling properties can be lucrative ways to make money on real estate that you don't want to own for yourself.

In the face of rapidly changing industries, businesses must be ever vigilant to grow and evolve or they too will face extinction. We have all heard that 9 out of every 10 new businesses fail.

How Do Investors Make Money In Real Estate

With residential real estate, it can be difficult to count on any real estate appreciation.Investors are beholden to the residential market cycle and comparison appraisal model. As such, many investors have been trapped in a down market unable to refinance due to a poor appraisal environment.
