Is now a good time to invest in real estate?

Real estate can be a decent way to diversify your portfolio, but you should first consider what type of real estate investor you want to be, active or passive?

There are three main ways you can invest in real estate. You could buy a property and flip it, rent it out, or you could use a real estate investment trust. Someone who’s got experience in all three is Dave Seymour, CEO and Co-founder of real estate investment firm Freedom Venture Investments.

Dave started his career flipping houses (you might recognize him from his A&E TV show, ‘Flipping Boston’) but now takes a lower-risk approach to real estate investment. In this podcast episode, he joins Murs and Radon to share why his strategy changed and his thoughts on investing in the current real estate market.

In this episode find out:

  • How Dave began his real estate career
  • Dave’s perspective on the current real estate market
  • Why real estate investors are anticipating more volatility but expecting new opportunities
  • Why Dave has steered away from a high-risk, high-return strategy to a lower-risk, cash-flow focused approach
  • What you should consider if you want to invest in real estate
  • How a real estate investment trust works
  • What real estate investors learned from the 2008 crash and how they’re applying their experience today
