Philanthropy Can Close Our Nation’s Wealth Gap and Provide a Crucial Safety Net — One That Government Cannot.

Editorial by Linda Pliagas, Publisher

As we close out another REI Wealth edition, we in the midst of a presidential election.  Like the rest of Americans, I’m continually being bombarded by emails, texts, robo-calls, letters, advertisements and social media posts reminding me to vote — with pleas that I vote a certain way, all across the board.

It’s difficult to remember our own voice and values with the constant, boisterous ruckus all around us.  While everyone may attempt to sway your vote, it’s important to silence the noise and take individual responsibility to learn as much as you can about the issues, and people, you are choosing.

The privilege of voting comes with responsibility. Have you done research on the bills on the ballot? Or, are you simply voting like your friends are? Be sure to take the time to research important issues that will shape our national and local lives.

My purpose for this editorial is not to attempt to sway you one way or another — everyone else will try and do that!  I do, however, have a unique perspective that I would like to share, since I was raised by a government employee.

My father worked as an electrical engineer for the United States Border Patrol for many years, so I recognize the importance that government has in our lives.  But truthfully, while we did “get by” with his federal salary, it certainly did not provide the comfortable lifestyle we yearned for.

In fact, even as a child I could see how frustrated my father became over the years. He yearned to provide a better home for us. He wanted to become an entrepreneur, but the safety and security of his federal position almost crippled him with complacency.

I was fortunate to discover early on that while our government is an important function in our lives, one that can indeed assist us during times of turmoil, it cannot possibly provide us with everything we need, nor want.

This is why philanthropy is so important to our American culture and life. Non-profit organizations, fueled by passionate workers and volunteers, can make a crucial difference in the lives of the most needy. They provide the safety net that government cannot — and should not.

My family has been at both ends of the Goodwill spectrum. During my dad’s brief stint as an entrepreneur, we had to rely on charity for a bit. Later, as a working adult, I donated clothes, furniture, money, and time to many worthwhile organizations.

In fact, one of the best Thanksgiving Day holidays I ever had was serving the homeless when I was 21 years old. At the time I was in college and worked part-time in an upscale restaurant. One of my regular customers was a successful lawyer who invited me to serve lunch with him on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles. What a life-changing experience that was!

Being a part of team to ensure that others with absolutely nothing had a warm, delicious meal was one of the biggest blessings I could ever ask for. It was a defining moment in my life.

Since then, I’m reminded every Thanksgiving Day to give thanks and give back.

It is in this spirit that we host our annual “Give Thanks, Give Back” Expo, only this year it’s being produced all virtually.  For the first time, our readers can now join us from wherever they may be.

Once again, we’ll have top speakers sharing the secret strategies that catapulted them to success as real estate investors. At the end of each session, our speaker will reveal their favorite charity so guests can learn about the important work they do, plus even make a direct donation — if they so choose to.

For the past ten years, our “Give Thanks, Give Back” VIRTUAL Expo has raised thousands of dollars for many worthwhile charities, including: Long Island Cares – The Harry Chapin Food Bank, The San Diego Mission, Salvation Army, Camp Home — The PTSD Foundation of America, among others.

We invite all of our readers to join us the weekend of November 21st and 22nd, beginning at 9 am PST, for an amazing weekend of learning and giving. For more information, CLICK HERE.

So, as we come near the close of another election, let’s know that regardless of the outcome, we still individually must take responsibility to create a better life for ourselves, our family, and our nation.

Until next time,

Are You Ready To Live Overseas? Before You Move, Read This.

-Special Submission by Matt Malouf-

The surge of Americans living full-time and seasonally abroad continues. Currently, The Association of Americans Resident Overseas (AAR) estimates that 8.7 million American reside oversees. Our editors have seen many real estate investors who read our publications make that transition.

Their reasons are varied, but have included: to retire early from a corporate job, to explore other cultures, as a way to stretch their monthly cash flow, to upgrade their standard of living, and of course, for the ever-so-popular amore.

If you’ve been considering moving to Coast Rica to escape that boring 9-to-5 or have always wanted to own a bed-and-breakfast in the Island of Santorini, read on to see if this option suits your lifestyle.

Starting a new life in a new country can be nerve-wracking. You have to understand the new culture and it is difficult when you get labeled as a “foreigner” or an “expat” on first sight. Here are a few tips that can help you adapt to a new life in a foreign county.

Trying New Things

As they say, you should always be willing to try new things, but, of course, you need to draw a line somewhere.

However, there are a lot of people out there who are afraid to eat new things, let alone experience extreme sports and adventure. This is the fear of the unknown and many research studies suggest we fear uncertainly more than a known bad outcome. Some of the questions that come to mind when people want to try new things are what if that country is dangerous, what if I drown and what if I don’t like the new dish.

It is natural for some level of fear to always be present when trying out new things; however, our overactive imagination makes it seem so much worse. Once a person makes up his mind to try new things at every possible turn, he or she will see a reduction in their fears and a thirst for new experiences.

Trying new things also makes us grow. Taking yourself out of your comfort zone and putting yourself where the action is will make us more empowered, open-minded and far from being bored. Afterall, you only live once.

Do As the Romans Do

A lot of people have trouble adapting to new places. Although living in an exotic new land may sound like a romantic notion, many people fail to make the transfer from expat to compatriots when they stick to their old lifestyles.

Most people experience culture shock after they witness a culture so vastly different from theirs. Culture shock slowly sets in and results in depression. This further alienates a person from the locals and makesthem feel lonely and homesick.

So, if you want to live abroad, make sure to open up your mind. Remember, this is not the country from where you came from and your old notions and concepts will no longer serve you. Since you will encounter different rules, observe how other people are acting in that situation so that you can understand what is expected of you.

One of the biggest concern of foreigners is that they are uncomfortable being a “visible minority.” A white person will stand out like a beacon in Nigeria or Japan and is bound to generate some odd looks. But if you adapt to the locals’ customs and follow their lead, you will see that your differences will look less marked.

Also, ask questions. If you feel lost, there is no shame in asking for help. You can always ask for explanation if you feel you have missed something. Also pay attention to not just the words but nonverbal communication to get a better idea of what is going on.

Once you accept change and adapt to your life in a new environment, you will find it has opened venues of opportunities for you and will lead to more thrilling and interesting stuff.

Don’t Wait For Anyone Else

Once you get to your new country, don’t wait for others to give you instructions on how to go about doing your business. Take the initiative and do it yourself. Ask lots if questions. Many Americans will experience a 180 degrees difference when they come to live in India or Egypt. The best way to cope with it is to go out and participate in what the locals are doing. You can learn a lot from actually experiencing things compared to what you are just told or what you read.

Speak the Language

Many English speakers are under the misapprehension that they can get by throwing random words of English and locals will understand them. Hence, they suffer quite a shock when they realize not many people in Asian or African countries speak English.

It is recommended that people who want to live in a new country must at least learn some key phrases in a foreign language so that they can order food or drink or find their way to a hotel. However, knowing the language extensively will enable you to have proper conversations with the locals, which can help you quickly learn about their customs and traditions. It will show how interested you are in knowing about your new country.

Pursue New Activities and Hobbies

In my understanding, if you are learning to live in a new country, you should also try and pursue some new hobbies. Try to explore where you are and what your place is in the greater scheme of things. This will help you look at the world from a different perspective.

One of the best things you can do is to look for a group that matches your interests. Even if you are from the other side of the world, there are always commonalities. Are you interested in cooking and is there a group offering local, exotic cuisine classes? Is there a local who likes to travel the world like you do and have many exciting stories to share? Join them.

If you are feeling isolated, look for a community of expats or start your own group. They will be native English speakers and will understand the norms of where you came from and can offer you words of advice.

Respect Different Cultures

Remember that unfortunate photo of Selene Gomez baring her leg in a mosque while she was on a visit to the United Arab Emirates? Don’t make that mistake. Be responsible and respect other people’s culture and religion.

The first thing you need to do is to accept the fact that there are many different cultures in the world other than just our own. Even if you do not agree with a custom or tradition, remember that it could encompass the country’s value and you need to honor your role as a visitor. An act that may seem simple or trivial to you may reflect something far more significant for a person from that culture. Being open-minded can fill your life with positivity and also encourage friendships with people from different race, culture and backgrounds.

If you follow these few simple rules, pretty soon you will be able to make a new home overseas. So, do you have what it takes?

Goal Setting – Did You Write Down Your Resolutions for 2019? Do It! Here’s why…

Realty411 is re-publishing this previously-written post so that our new readers can benefit from these timeless tips. As the upcoming market slows down across the country, investors need to be especially cautious and become educated like never before. It is for this reason that Realty411 will increase its frequency in publishing and produce more events in 2019 than in previous years. Stay tuned for more fantastic strategies, quality content, and premiere networking opportunities.

Happy New Year! May 2019 bring you and your family prosperity and health.

by Linda Pliagas, Founder/Publisher

There is something special about the beginning of a new year. It’s a time to reflect on the last twelve months and examine our accomplishments, and failures. It’s a wonderful season to focus on our mission and figure out a strategy for the future.

With this in mind, I cannot stress how important it is to write down your goals for the upcoming year. When you join pen to paper and have an honest self-talk about what it is you need, and want from life, it truly changes EVERYTHING.

Successful people always plan and prepare. You cannot chart your path without knowing where you want your final destination to be. Every year, I write down my goals.

This New Year’s homework was first introduced to me by a successful real estate broker/investor who spent an entire afternoon writing down his goals. He actually didn’t just write them down as one, two, three; instead, he would write the goals down and then go into specific details for each one.

His New Year’s Resolution list was actually many pages long!

As you can imagine this broker was very successful. He was a multimillionaire by age 29 with multiple investments around the nation and a thriving agency business.

Now you certainly don’t have to write a thesis for your goal-setting to take root. Simply write down some goals of what it is you wish to accomplish for the upcoming year. Some people make one goal; a typical one is to lose weight – everyone seems to have that one on the list!

I say why limit yourself to one goal, when the sky is the limit…

I normally write down 10 goals and anticipate six or seven of them to materialize by year’s end. I also like to mix it up and not only focus on business goals, like buying real estate or expanding our media business or antique clock/watch shop, but also throw in personal ones as well… like being more patient with my family and exercising more regularly.

This year, I am urging everyone around me to write down their goals. Please take at least a few minutes out your busy day TODAY to write down some things you wish to accomplish for 2019. I am reaching out to everyone in our social network today as well (nearly 75,000) to remind them to write down their goals for they year, in case they have not yet done so.

As you can see, I’m feel very strongly about this exercise because I know we ALL desire to be more successful, to have better relationships, and to be heather and happier people.

We all want a better life, and your improved life can begin today if you’ll just carve out a little time to write down your goals for 2019.

Following are some tips to get you started on your way to an unbelievable year.

  1. Figure out what it is you want to accomplish for 2019. Ask yourself why do you want it? Is it for my highest good and for the good of my loved ones?
  2. Mix up a few business and personal goals: Remember, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
  3. Write your goals on something so that you can review them often. This year, I wrote them down on my phone and backed them up on a notepad.
  4. Share your goals with loved ones. Having a partner on the same page can double your momentum. Sharing your individual goals as a couple can be a wonderful way to bond and share a united dream. If you also want to keep a few goals private, allow yourself the space to do so.
  5. Get ready to see action! By setting forth to the universe what it is you need and desire, the law of attraction begins to work its magic. But don’t forget that you have to do your part and be ready to take action when opportunities are presented.

A: Flip (her husband) and I spent about 10 years of our life after college traveling on cruise ships as musicians and art auctioneers. Once we were back on land, we both wanted something that required less travel and put us in one place. I decided to pursue and learn three different interests of mine and choose one. First, I tried finance. Didn’t like it. I moved on to mortgages and lending. Didn’t like it either. Finally, I landed on real estate sales. I became a REALTOR® and guess what? Didn’t like it either. Flip and I both became REALTORS® in 2008 at the height of the recession.

It was tough. So we decided to attend an educational seminar put on by Phil Grove. Soon we became part of his expert panel as we were his most successful students. After a few years investing in real estate in Texas, Florida, Arizona and other states, we were turned on to the concept of turnkey investments.

I loved the idea because it is all about helping others create cash flow and financial freedom for themselves, which was exactly what we were passionate about doing for ourselves. Now we could help others do the same and they could benefit from our experience and knowledge. We started doing it and haven’t looked back.

Q: Tell us a bit more about your current business and what you’re doing.

A: My main focus is turnkey investing. Basically, we buy properties, rehab them to our standards, rent them to a tenant, put property management in place, and in turn sell it to a real estate investor who wants monthly cash flow without the hassle. It’s an all in one, done for you real estate investing system.Most of our clients are busy professionals who understand the power of building wealth with real estate and they want to get involved, but don’t have the time, resources, knowledge or even interest to learn more about it.

An added bonus of investing this way is your investment doesn’t have to be local to you. With turnkey, you’re able to select markets with high returns that may be across the country. As long as you’re partnered with a trustworthy turnkey company, your asset should be well taken care of.

Q: Your business is located in Dayton, Ohio. Why Dayton?

A: Dayton is great for generating cash-flowing assets. A few things play into that. One, you can buy property much cheaper here than in a lot of other metro areas like Los Angeles, Miami, and Chicago. Here, a single-family property that has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms will cost you as little as $75,000. Try getting that in one of those cities I just mentioned. With that $75,000 investment, you’re cash flowing about $730 per month after taxes, insurance, and management fees. That’s a 12% return on your investment. Once you get into properties with two units and higher, the returns can get even better.

We offer some properties with 15% returns. Two, the greater Dayton area has a history of a greater owner to renter ratio. Right now, it’s about 60% home owners and 40% renters. That means there is a solid number of renters in the area needing housing. Three, it’s a stable economy. There is definitely growth happening in the greater Dayton and Cincinnati area. The urban core of both cities is booming. Dayton has some staple businesses that have long been here and will continue to be. For example, Wright Patterson Air Force Base, one of the largest research bases in the military and the largest single-site employer in all of Ohio is based in Dayton.

Q: So why not just do real estate investing and rentals myself?

A: I’ve been a real estate coach since 2010. Over 90% of students fail. Either they don’t have the time, passion, or money. It’s always one of those. Seasoned investors have all experienced failure. It’s part of learning. Failures that have cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars.

We’ve done it. If you want to do it, more power to you. Real estate has a huge learning curve. Plus it’s full-time. If you do it right, if you do it well, it’s more than full-time. With no experience in real estate, you’ll likely find yourself with a money pit of a property, get frustrated, and give up.

Q: How does turnkey investing compare to investing in the stock market?

A: I love the cash flow and asset protection aspect of turnkey investing. Renters will always exist. There will always be demand. Plus, if you decide to sell off your properties, you will always have a tangible asset that has worth. Also, real estate isn’t as volatile as the stock market.

Even if the real estate market crashes, there will always be a recovery. Plus, if it crashes, you fall back on cash flow. It’s rare that rents go down – even in a recession. They may not increase but you will still be getting consistent cash flow every month. It’s just not the same with the stock market.

Q: Speaking of a market crash, how do these assets weather that?

A: When you’re buying turnkey properties, you should be buying for cash flow. Yes there are a few markets that boast appreciation as a selling point. I never advise that. Appreciation is speculative and never guaranteed. If you have a 10-year plan, what happens when the market crashes at 9 years and 9 months into your plan? Not good, right? Buy turnkey properties for cash flow. Appreciation is an added bonus when you decide to exit.

Your goal shouldn’t be to have $1 million dollars in your bank account. It should be to have $10,000 in cash flow coming to your mailbox every month. That’s how you achieve true financial freedom.

Q: What does the future look like for Freedom Real Estate Group and you?

A: I plan on continuing to work on and expand our turnkey business. We’ve been able to meet some great people across the globe. I love it. Especially the wonderful success stories. We plan to expand into some other markets. By the end of 2018, we will be expanding into Cincinnati. We’re hoping within the next 12 months to have a presence in two other markets as well but that is still in the works.

Q: Finally, what advice do you have for someone new to real estate investing who wants to begin?

A: If your passion is real estate, find someone local and learn from them. Always have the mindset of there is something new to learn. I’m still learning. If your passion is different from real estate, as in you’re a doctor, teacher, or dentist, align yourself with a real estate investment professional to define and set your goals. That’s how I approach all client conversations. I want to know your goals so I can put you on the right path to get there. Real estate is a great asset for passive income.

If you’re a busy professional who doesn’t want to quit their job and get into real estate full-time, turnkey investing may be a good option. Eventually, once you’ve built a healthy portfolio, you’re working because you want to – not because you have to. That’s true financial freedom.
