The great active vs. passive investing debate has been argued for centuries. Those who want to put their nose to the grindstone say that active real estate investing can result in massive returns. Passive income investors may argue that they don’t have the time or experience to do such large projects, and that great returns only come from great operators. The question you should ask—which one is right for you?
I started my real estate investing career by heavily investing in active deals. I would find the deal, plan the flip, manage the renovation, and take a large sum of the profit home as a result. As I started to expand my team, I ventured into passive income investing so I can free up more of my time to invest in deals that I feels truly passionate about.
In this video, I’ll touch on what makes a great active or passive investor, the skills/resources that both strategies require, how to vet a passive income deal, and the types of lifestyles that fit both investing styles. Whether you’re a DIY flipper or a savvy syndication investor, real estate remains a great space to build wealth—when done correctly.
