    FB this year 70% – last year ~20%
    Microsoft 32% – last year 22%
    Alibaba ~100% – last year ~20%

    The only way you can do 5-8% return on stock is when you dont understand the market.
    Real estate is way more risky and you dont say you sell a house or an appartment just like that
    If you region is saturated, u gonna endup with debt on your back

    I agree that real estate can be a good investment if u know what you are doing, but there is a lots of wrong information in your video about stock market.
    As much as you need to know what you're doing in Real Estate, the same is to applied in stock, but stock market is way less risky that real estate.

    Hmm sorta like what color smells better? Blue or chicken? If you are a real investor you can make great returns with any investment vehicle because you analyze and CONTROL your investments and your ROI at ENTRY. I achieve returns of between 2-7% per month because I won't enter an investment that returns less than that. Real estate or any other asset class can be a black hole to a moron who doesn't know what they are doing. Real estate is illiquid, slow, a source of high liability, and can be a leverage nightmare in a downturn, leaving you helpless and indebted to your creditors. The goal isn't to position yourself to merely survive market corrections. You position yourself to perform good enough in good market corrections and perform even better when things turn south. Then you have complete control over your success. That is impossible to achieve in real estate even if you are a cash buyer. Market problems cause credit to dry up, tenants to lose jobs, banks to call notes, vacancies to rise, values to fall, and with no way to hedge against those factors, you are hung out to dry.

    Diversify. Do stocks (vanguard index funds and let it sit) and also real estate (rentals; flip only if you know how but the market is too high to do it easily right now). Save your money and invest it in both stocks and real estate (assuming you've paid off your other debts) because if you let it just sit there in the bank you're actually losing money after inflation. If you can do all this then you can reach financial independence in the next ten years — either completely retired or at least semi-retired working 3 days a week doing something you enjoy!

    A gross ROI of 12% in real estate is a terrible investment.

    So I'm making an 50% return right now on my shares in Boeing, 20% return on wynn resorts and 10% return on my shares in Apple, Facebook and Microsoft….. even if I retired and the share price dropped, if my portfolio is large enough I could make 1000s in dividends every year. Equivalent to the rental properties.

    got 30% ROI within 2 month with just holding one of the biggest cryptocurrencies.

    What book would you suggest to get started for learning everything to know about real estate investing?

  9. Alex Sanchez

    I love your videos man. Even though most of the things you say I already know since I've been learning and reading for the past 2 years. I still have to watch because I'm just that passionate. Keep up the good work!! 22 years old buying a six unit apartment by the beginning of next year.

  12. NoMoneyHeadsUp

    Very biased and unobjective video. Disliked

  13. Lester Moe

    Can you run down an example of how you figure your cap rates? I can't seem to find anything close to 12%

  14. Kenneth Wiley

    well i know that you can build a auto polit trading software robot and make money if the numbers for the risk the return ratio are done properly.

  17. Kenneth Wiley

    because your selling the property at 70 percent of the purchase to value price most cash buyers look for 30 percent off mrkt value but i mean if your okay with that then fine.

  18. Kenneth Wiley

    that's the worst deal i've heard of in real-estate

  19. Kyle Kiper

    There is a lot of wrong information in this video.

    The average return in the stock market since it has opened has been 11.9%. This would allow investors to double their money in 6.1 years. People tend to forget about compound interest.

    Not saying real estate is a bad investment, but this video does not do a good job explaining the stock market side of investing.

    When will you be putting up the reading list video?
