How Much Did You Lose on Your Investment Property This Week?

By Ken Jones | How Much Did Your Investment Lose

How much did you lose on your investment property this week?

Why am I asking what is, apparently, a stupid question?

Because, I'm trying to accentuate the fact, that while those invested in the stock market, which is greatest gambling casino on Earth, have lost about 10% of the value of their investment through no fault or act of their own, people who own investment real estate haven't lost a dime.

Investment real estate owners are still collecting their rents, still paying their operating expenses, still paying their debt service, and still putting cash in their pockets every month, as usual. And, there's absolutely no reason to expect any change in their cash flow - unlike those who are invested in stocks.

In fact, it's more likely than not, that when those poor shlubs who are getting their brains beaten in during this latest stock market damage finally come to their senses, they're probably going to be looking to buy investment real estate (at least those who have some common sense). And, that's going to lift the value of the real estate owned by those who already own investment real estate.

If you want to know more about becoming a successful real estate investor, visit my website and listen to my podcast, The Ken Jones Real Estate Show. It's available on iTunes, SoundCloud.com, Tunein.com, and on Stitcher.com.

And, if you let me teach you how to become a successful real estate investor, after the next stock market dive, you can answer the question, How much did you lose in your investment property this week? by saying - I lost NOTHING! 😉

Ken Jones Real Estate Advisor

An Introduction to Income Producing Real Estate is a "must hear" show for those who are new to real estate investing, including new real estate agents.

​I also take you through the various aspects of the leasing practices typically associated with residential property, retail and office properties, and various industrial uses, including flex buildings, as well as general and distribution warehouses.

​I'll provide a transcript of this episode to anyone who requests it. To request a transcript or if you have a question, or even a comment or a suggestion, just click on the START RECORDING button below and leave me a voice message. You can also contact me by email by clicking here.

KJRES-005: Risk – Understanding It, Measuring It and Minimizing It

By Ken Jones | Podcast

Risk

In this show I discuss the very important issue of risk and provide a detailed definition. I also explain how to measure the level of risk associated with a real estate investment and the steps you can take to minimize your risk.

Understanding risk and how to identify it and measure it is absolutely critical to the success of both the newbie who typically has very little understanding of the dangers involved in real estate investing, as well as the experienced real estate investor, who may be seeking to get involved in either an unfamiliar market area, or investing in a new and different property type.

This show also details the differences between "investing" in real estate and "speculating" in a high-risk venture.

​Regardless of your experience as a real estate investor, this is a very important show that you should not miss.

I will also email you a transcript of this show ​so you can maximize your understanding of this relatively complex subject and use it for future reference.

Please contact me to request the transcript of this show, or to ask me any questions you may have. Just click on the  Start recording  button below and leave me a voice message. I'll get back to you as quickly as possible.
