  7. Why Traditional Real Estate...

In this episode, I’m talking about something a little controversial.

I know this is going to get some of your hackles up but I want to talk about why in my opinion, traditional real estate investing is riskier than alternative investing. 

There are lots of caveats on that but the big thing I want to point out in this episode is the principles of why a good alternative investment is going to be less risky than a good traditional property.

I’m also going to tell you what you need to know in terms of distinguishing between the two in terms of when is the right time for you to be looking at either. 

But I guess what I want to really go a little deeper on today is why do I actually disagree passionately that alternative investing is riskier than traditional real estate investing.

When people say that alternative investing is high risk because it has high returns, I think the exact opposite is true. 

We cover:

  • the pros of traditional property
  • the cons and risks of traditional property
  • the ultimate reason why traditional property is riskier than alternative
  • the pros of alternative investing in the property market
  • alternative investing is super passive
  • the cons of alternative investing
  • comparing traditional & alternative property deals
