Real estate debt, also known as leverage, can be a foreign concept to many financial freedom-chasing investors. For so long, you’ve been told to stay out of debt, keep your cash, and pay off your loans as fast as possible. When you enter into the world of real estate investing, it can seem like you’ve been sent to another reality where debt is your friend. Ashley and Tony both had to learn this early on, and they benefited greatly thanks to their new best friend: good debt!
This week’s question comes from Jessica through Tony’s Instagram direct messages. Jessica has seen what Tony and his wife Sara have been doing while building their short-term rental empire. But, Jessica is having some doubts. She’s asking: How do you invest in real estate when the idea of debt scares you?
