So with all the opportunities available to us within the real estate industry, what is the most important thing for us to consider when we decide which investment strategies are best suited for accomplishing our goals? How soon you plan to arrive at your event horizons is the most important factor in deciding how to invest in real estate. Wholesaling and flipping are the two most popular transactional investing strategies because the payouts come within weeks or months and some of them can be quite large. If you’re looking to make big life changes soon, I encourage you to work on house hacking and transactional investing. Either way, and whenever your event horizon is, I’m sure you can accomplish your goals with real estate!
