This is Journal Club 07/02/21! I stop every week JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering the articles on the web, I present some that have had an impact on my life this week. Be safe and stay healthy!
In this week’s newsletter, I talked about the abundance of online real estate investment advice in the form of blogs. It is easy to feel inundated with all this redundant and often irrelevant information. To get you started, I want to share these resources with you that provide high quality, actionable investment advice. Whether your style is more hands-on, like owning rental properties, or like investing in real estate crowdfunding sites, there’s something here for everyone. So let’s dive in.
- If you’re looking for an investment experience that is similar to investing in stocks, consider the Real Estate Investment Trust or REIT. These are publicly traded on the stock exchange and are therefore easily accessible for private investors to diversify their portfolios. Wondering where to start? Check out this article Investing in REIT for beginners by As Merrill from Fortune Builders. It covers various aspects of REITs, including investment requirements, tax implications, and the best REITs to buy.
- If flipping houses sounds too intense and you’d rather invest in something more practical, then you should consider exploring real estate crowdfunding sites. This method works by investing in debt or equity programs via crowdfunding platforms such as Fundrise, CrowdStreet or RealtyMogul for certain real estate projects. In the article, A Beginner’s Guide to Crowdfunding Real Estate Investing, Author Financial samurai talks about the benefits and best practices of investing in real estate crowdfunding.
That’s all for now. Hope you enjoyed the Journal Club this week. Check out these sources when you have a few minutes to spare.
