We’re still in the midst of a global pandemic…
And yet — stocks recently hit new all-time highs!
The Dow topped 33,000, the S&P broke 4,000, and the Nasdaq is just a few points away from an eye-popping 14,000.
This is great news for investors. But if you’re anything like me, you may be wondering, “How long can the good times last?”
And that’s why Matt and I have been looking for ways to diversify. We’re looking for investments beyond stocks… and even beyond startups.
And today, I’ll share our #1 pick with you…
When Stocks “Zig,” Find Investments that “Zag”
Traditionally, when investors get worried about the stock market, they shift money into bonds.
But with interest rates at all-time lows, bonds are a terrible investment right now.
But a different investment is providing an excellent alternative…
Not only is it relatively uncorrelated to the stock market (so when the market zigs, this investment can zag)…
But it can also provide you with double-digit yields and significant growth potential.
The market I’m referring to?
Real estate might not sound like the “sexiest” investment. But that’s because the traditional ways of investing in it are lacking.
For instance, most investors focus on REITs…
Publicly-traded REITs (or Real Estate Investment Trusts) allow you to buy and sell shares of real estate portfolios in the stock market. This allows you to own multiple properties with a small amount of capital.
But here’s the thing…
REITs are highly correlated to the stock market – meaning, if the market drops, so might the value of your REIT.
On top of that, because of all the middlemen (e.g., the bankers, brokers, and real estate managers), your returns can end up looking pretty meager.
But as it turns out, there’s a much better way to profit from real estate…
A Better Way to Invest
Typically, the biggest returns for real estate investors come from buying actual property.
But buying an entire property is expensive, and it’s time consuming to manage.
Furthermore, you’re generally limited to acquiring properties close to home. That can leave you with limited investment options, and it could mean lower overall returns.
For example, what if your region is going through a downturn — but meanwhile, prices in other parts of the country are soaring?
The BEST Way to Invest in Real Estate
But what if you could own actual real estate anywhere in the country…
Cut out all of the middlemen…
And do so without risking much upfront capital?
Now you can!
You see, thanks to a new set of laws, now you can invest in real estate deals from all across the country, and you can do so from the comfort of your living room.
I’m talking about properties in some of the hottest markets in America, with minimum investments as low as a few hundred dollars.
Deals You Can Invest in Right Now
For example, here are some properties you can invest in today:
Illume – Nashville — Nashville, TN is the midst of a real estate boom. The average home price rose by 16.8% last year. And with more people fleeing big cities because of the coronavirus pandemic, this trend is expected to continue.
To take advantage of this market, you can invest in a new luxury condominium taking shape in one of Nashville’s most popular up-and-coming districts.
And get this — the minimum investment is less than $500.
Flatiron – Miami — With its vibrant nightlife and ZERO state income tax, Miami is quickly becoming one of America’s hottest destinations. And for just a few hundred dollars, you could own a piece of a new luxury condo in the Brickell area.
NYC Opportunity Fund — And if you’re looking to diversify a bit more, here’s a compelling opportunity to explore.
The NYC Opportunity Fund aims to take advantage of the real estate slump in New York City. It’s raising money to buy up distressed properties at big discounts.
As the billionaire tycoon Jacob Astor once said, “Could I begin life again, knowing what I now know, and had money to invest, I would buy every foot of land on the island of Manhattan.”
And now you have the chance to follow Astor’s dream — for as little as $1,000.
But Never Forget…
Just because you can make these investments, doesn’t mean you should.
You’ll need to do research to determine whether these deals are appropriate for you.
And don’t “bet it all on black”! Use the same rules for real estate as you would with any asset class: diversify, and build a portfolio of investments over time.
That way, you can increase your chances of earning profits — especially when the stock market eventually heads south.
