Who’s buying real estate? Maybe you are, maybe your friend is, but what about NFL players? Most casual fans would assume that getting paid millions of dollars a year would ensure a long-lasting retirement, but this isn’t always true. For many professional athletes, you’re constantly living one injury away from having no income. If, like many newly-signed pros, you splurge your first few years of checks, you could enter into retirement flat broke without any of the millions you earned. This is the exact opposite of what Cliff Avril and Devon Kennard did. They knew that their career earnings started ticking away the second they stepped onto the field, so they made moves to protect their wealth in other ways. Although numerous financial advisors told them to play it safe with index funds, REITs (real estate investment trusts), or other more “passive” investments, they decided to multiply their active income by investing heavily in real estate. And, even during an economic downturn, these two financial powerhouses are still investing, trying to maximize their dollar as much as possible. In this episode, we chat with Cliff and Devon about syndications they’ve invested in, how they’re staying up-to-date in today’s wild housing market, where they’re investing, and why they picked real estate over all the other assets. You don’t need to be a pro football player to take these lessons to heart, so stick around because this episode is bound to make you wealthier! 00:00 Intro 02:45 Full-Time Football, Part-Time Property Investing 06:58 Why Real Estate? 14:18 Starting with Syndications 22:31 Making Money a Common Topic 31:25 Investing During a Recession 39:10 Markets Cliff and Devon Invest In 46:22 It’s One Big Game 52:25 Connect with Cliff and Devon! 54:02 NFL ❤️ OTM ~~~~ Join BiggerPockets for FREE 👇 https://www.biggerpockets.com/signup?… ~~~~ Listen to The “On The Market” Podcast Wherever You Listen to Podcasts: Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/2NlzZ9N… Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast… BiggerPockets: https://www.biggerpockets.com/podcast… ~~~~ Join the Future of Real Estate Investing with Fundrise: https://www.fundrise.com/bpmarket ~~~~ Find an Investor-Friendly Agent in Your Area: https://www.biggerpockets.com/agent/m… ~~~~ Connect with Cliff: TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@cliffavril Instagram: @cliffavril or https://www.instagram.com/cliffavril/ ~~~~ Connect with Devon: BiggerPockets: https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/d… Devon’s Book: https://www.devonkennard.com/bookpreo… Instagram: @devonkennard or https://www.instagram.com/devonkennard/ Website: https://www.devonkennard.com/ ~~~~ Connect with Dave and Our Panel of Guests: Dave Meyer: https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/d… Henry Washington: https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/h… James Dainard: https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/j… Jamil Damji: https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/j… Kathy Fettke: https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/k… ~~~~ Follow Dave and Our Guests on Instagram: Dave: @thedatadeli or https://www.instagram.com/thedatadeli/ Henry: @thehenrywashington or https://www.instagram.com/thehenrywas… James: @jdainflips or https://www.instagram.com/jdainflips/ Jamil: @jdamji or https://www.instagram.com/jdamji/ Kathy: @kathyfettke or https://www.instagram.com/kathyfettke/ BiggerPockets: @biggerpockets or https://www.instagram.com/biggerpockets/ Episode #76 Show notes at: https://www.biggerpockets.com/blog/on…
