The Arbitrage Architect
You might be asking- what is an "Arbitrage Architect"? Here's the best way I can answer that question...
If you're a highly skilled professional or entrepreneur earning mid-6 figures+/year and looking take control over where you're money is invested ... you're in the right place.
The wealthy search for arbitrage investment opportunities. Places they have an unfair advantage over the masses. Typically, they invest in Commercial Real Estate.
Why commercial properties?
Several reasons: for starters, it's an investment vehicle few understand. Generally reserved for Pension Funds, Hedge Funds and Wealthy Families who understand game and how it's played. And, if you're someone who takes the time to learn the commercial real estate game- you can profit as well. The benefits of commercial real estate include:
- Control- owning tangible assets, they can touch and feel
- Cashflow- every month collecting money from their tenants with little effort
- Tax Advantages- commercial properties allow for attractive tax write offs and creating substantial wealth
- Scale- if you're trying to invest a good amount of capital, just 1 commercial property can provide 6-7 figures of annual cash flow. Very difficult to do in residential real estate.
Now, one thing I should tell you. I wasn't raised by rich parents. My dad was a principle and my mom taught Grade 1. In 1997 (year after graduation), I watched my parents trust a family friend with a $100,000 to invest in a lucrative investment opportunity.
My parents were nearing the end of their career and they didn't have $100k to invest. So, they remortgaged their home to come up with a $100k. 6 months later- their money was gone. They lost every cent.
For the next 10 years, they worked 60+ hours a week to pay off their home- for a 2nd time. (BTW- I too invested in that deal and lost everything I'd saved to go back to university- $13,500).
That experience lit a fire under me. To seek out how the wealthy invested. What they do differently with their money?
How do they keep getting richer- investing in opportunities we never see?
Over the years, I learned the very wealthy families exhibit two common traits:
1. they invest in themselves: either through their business or careers, and in their education and personal development; and,
2. they invest in cash flowing commercial real estate.
Over the past 10 years I've modelled how they invest in commercial real estate and share these lessons with those who are looking to take control over how their money is invested. To stop handing it over to someone else. To get out of the 8-5, working weekends and holidays rat race of their high paying jobs or businesses.
You get the benefit of learning from someone who's invested and made millions and, lost, (not millions- but several hundred thousand). With more than $300M in real estate transactions- if you're looking for a way to make smarter investing decisions - you can model my 5 Step Wealth Building Framework.
To get you out of investing like the poor and trading time for money.
A warning: This is NOT common investing advice, and these strategies are not widely dispensed online for the masses.
If you're an entrepreneur, a doctor, or engineer earning well above the average income – you are uncommon. And it's my belief you can't listen to average advice geared to the masses.
For a person earning mid-6 and 7 figures to spend half their working hours on a rental house or trading the stock market to hopefully make a few extra thousands of dollars a month- it doesn't make sense.
Here’s the truth, that took me years to discover. Very few people are taught how to create a substantial net worth. They don't teach this in school.
So many people end up:
- Delegating their investments to someone else and hoping their money was invested in the right place and, or
- Making quick investment decisions with little due diligence.
The problem: lacking a solid financial education leads to gambling with your money. And, with no framework to evaluate potential investment opportunities- how can you be certain that your money is going to be working for you?
Investing in commercial real estate is not get rich quick. If done correctly, it can create substantial wealth. But, without the proper education and guidance- unfortunately many investors lose money like my parents. Falling for one of these three common investing mistakes. All of which I learned the hard way and are totally avoidable. Let me explain (click here to keep reading)…
How to create passive, predicatable, monthly income investing in Commercial Real Estate.
The most common problems I hear from highly skilled professionals:
- I'm too busy, I don't have time to research and find the best properties. What type of properties should I be looking at?
- I want to invest in commercial properties- but I don't know where to start?
I started investing like many new to real estate investing. I flipped houses, built new homes and built up a portfolio of rentals. I don't regret it, as I learned some valuable investing lessons.
But, I was working a demanding job at the time and investing in single family homes and condos had me busting my ass for 80+ hours a week. I was far from creating passive cash flow from my investments.
It wasn’t until I met my mentor (now my father-in-law) who showed me how the wealthy invest. How to find value add real estate opportunities that can generate millions in profit.
In my latest book, you'll discover how even one commercial property could replace your earned income. It's not uncommon for 1 commercial property to pay several hundred thousands/year in revenue. You just need to understand which properties to look for and where.
