The first thing a real estate investor needs to decide, is what is your strategy? Everyone hopes to buy low and sell high. Few consider the riches available by investing in bare land.
The Land Geek, Mark Podolsky, shared his journey from a workaholic investment banker to a two hour per week passive income professional investor in bare land.
Mark’s investment banker training taught him that a company with fifteen percent EBITDA was a good company. When his new work colleague showed that investing in land he could make 300 percent, he had to see for himself.
Sure enough, when he took the three thousand he had saved for car repairs and turned it into nine thousand, in less than thirty days, he was hooked. In just eighteen months of investing on the side, he was able to surpass his income as an investment banker.
So, he traded in his one hundred hour work weeks, for what is now no more that two hours per week.
