Why Geography is NOT a Condition for Investing

Why Geography is NOT a Condition for Investing with Kevin Clayson and Steve Earl


With real estate, people usually think they should invest close to home. To buy properties they can see, touch, and feel every day. 


And in a way, it makes sense because it helps them feel like they have greater control over their investment.


However, there are some massive downsides to this approach. 


First off, real estate investments are a lot of work. And there’s only so much you can handle on your own, which makes your investing strategy inherently limited.


But a potentially bigger challenge is that investing in real estate opportunities close to home is sometimes downright impossible.


Steve Earl Quote on How Price Point Affects Real Estate Investing


Thankfully, there is a way to overcome both of these obstacles in one go, by removing geography as a condition for investing.


All you need is a trustworthy, expert team that can take on all the proximity-determined work for you.


Having control over your investment is important, but you don’t need to control every single aspect to gain all the benefits. 


Once you accept that, there’s no limit to what you can achieve on your income replacement journey.


In today’s episode, Steve and I will talk about the details of removing geography as a condition for investing in real estate.
