Then, Del explains how depreciation works on many levels for real estate investor tax avoidance, of which becoming a “real estate professional” is a supreme advantage.

(August 23, 2017) The Members Behind The Multifamily Masters Tour – Featuring LU Members Kevin & Laurie

Kevin and Laurie have spent the better part of their lives knowing that they would never see the pension retirement options their parents had. That in mind, they set out to make the most of the retirement tools of their generation: IRAs, 401ks, stocks, mutual funds. They walked through our doors armed to the teeth with this arsenal of retirement options, and slowly but surely, each one dropped. Multifamily investing became their mantra. Years later, Kevin would look back at their premiere mutual fund only to find that it had returned 2.68% after 10 years…

Quoting from Dr. Stephen Covey, Steve Davis states that “all things are created twice, first mentally, then physically.

(August 21, 2017) The Members Behind The Multifamily Masters Tour – Featuring LU Members Mit & Greg

So, imagine taking on passive multifamily investing to learn the ropes to run a deal one day. One of your passive investments increases in value by $2,000,000 (all the while paying out cash flow and a huge cash-out refinance). You decide you want to keep this golden goose, so you buy out your partners and bring in a close friend/fellow member to help you do that in one fell swoop. This is Mit and Greg’s story and it only gets better from here.
