3 Powerful Strategies Banks Use to Achieve Financial Freedom – And How You Can Too!

By Eric Willner, Host of The Real Estate Show, America’s longest running daily radio show about real estate.

The Real Estate Show - Thursday ATM: About The Money Edition

[Opening Segment]

Eric Willner: “Welcome to the Real Estate Show – South Florida’s #1 Real Estate Radio Show and America's longest-running daily radio show about real estate. This is 'The Real Estate Show', and I’m your host, Eric Willner. Known as the Voice of Real Estate, I am the founder of America’s longest-running daily radio show about real estate and the creator of The Automatic Landlord System for Owning Cash Flowing Real Estate 'Profitably and Hassle-Free.' This show is your virtual real estate seminar in every episode. Today, it’s the Thursday 'ATM - About The Money' Edition, where we dive deep into the financial strategies that can set you free.”

[Hook Point and Theme Introduction]

Eric Willner: “Did you know? Real estate offers the potential for multiple streams of Return on Investment (ROI), not just capital appreciation. We're talking about rental income, tax benefits, and depreciation deductions! That’s right – the magic of real estate lies not only in its value growth but in the myriad ways it can put money back in your pocket.

Today is Thursday, where we say it’s the 'ATM - About The Money' Edition of The Real Estate Show. And we continue to talk about why NOW is the time to buy real estate with our powerful theme: ‘Think Like a Bank, Act Like a Real Estate Investor, and Get Financially Free.’

So, do you know ‘The Rules of Money’? Yes, there are rules, and knowing them gives you the financial edge. Here are some of the critical rules:

  • The 1% Rule
  • The 4% Rule
  • The Rule of 72

These rules are crucial in helping you navigate and leverage your finances effectively. But first, let’s explore a key question: Did you know that mastering these rules is essential to maximize your ROI in real estate?”

[Key Reasons to Invest in Real Estate Now]

Eric Willner: “So, why is it crucial to ‘Think Like a Bank, Act Like a Real Estate Investor, and Get Financially Free’? Here are five compelling reasons:

  1. Diversified Income Streams: Real estate provides multiple income avenues – from rental income to tax advantages like depreciation deductions.
  2. Appreciation and Wealth Building: Over time, real estate values tend to rise, building significant equity.
  3. Leverage Opportunities: Real estate allows you to leverage other people’s money, increasing your potential returns.
  4. Tax Benefits: As a property owner, you can enjoy various tax deductions and credits that can significantly lower your taxable income.
  5. Inflation Hedge: Real estate typically appreciates with inflation, maintaining your investment's value over time.

These reasons underscore why understanding and applying the ‘Rules of Money’ can give you the financial edge you need to succeed. And speaking of financial edges, don’t forget to text 'Credit' to 561-861-2366 to learn more about building your financial edge and unlocking real estate success through good credit!

[Deep Dive: Thinking Like a Bank]

Eric Willner: “Now, let’s dive deeper into our theme for today: 'Think Like a Bank, Act Like a Real Estate Investor, and Get Financially Free.' Banks thrive on a combination of strategic planning, risk management, and leveraging assets. As a real estate investor, adopting this mindset can transform how you approach opportunities.

  1. The 1% Rule: This rule suggests that the property’s monthly rent should be at least 1% of its purchase price. It’s a quick way to assess if a property can generate positive cash flow.
  2. The 4% Rule: Often used in retirement planning, it states that you can withdraw 4% of your investment portfolio annually without running out of money. For real estate, this rule helps in planning long-term sustainable withdrawals from rental income.
  3. The Rule of 72: This rule is a simple way to estimate how long it will take for an investment to double in value at a fixed annual rate of interest. For real estate, it’s about understanding how your property’s value or income can grow over time.

Each of these rules provides a framework for making informed, strategic decisions that can maximize your returns and minimize your risks. This is the essence of thinking like a bank.”

[Continued Discussion: The Power of a Three-Pronged Approach]

Eric Willner: “Let’s talk about why NOW is the time to buy real estate, focusing on the powerful theme: 'Think Like a Bank, Act Like a Real Estate Investor, and Get Financially Free.' This is all about leveraging the power of a three-pronged approach – much like a sturdy three-legged stool, which provides stability and strength:

  1. Buy a House – Be a Homeowner: Owning your home is the first step towards building financial security and independence.
  2. Financial Order and a Written Plan: Ensure your house is in financial order with a written financial/life plan. This step is crucial to managing your assets and planning for the future.
  3. Own a Business for Income and Tax Benefits: Whether it’s a real estate business or another venture, owning a business can provide significant income and tax benefits, giving you an edge in your financial game.

We believe in this approach because it aligns with our core beliefs:

  • I believe everyone should buy a house and be a homeowner.
  • I believe everyone should have their house in financial order with a written plan.
  • I believe everyone should own a business that pays them and provides tax benefits – this is The Financial Edge. Your financial team is here to help you talk about it and take action.”

[Five-Star System to Win at The Money Game]

Eric Willner: “We have developed a Five-Star System to WIN at the Money Game, ensuring you have the tools and support to succeed. Here’s how it breaks down:

  1. Save: Start by saving more of what you already make. Efficient budgeting and smart spending can go a long way.
  2. Make: Invest what you make wisely and grow it smarter, not harder.
  3. Multiply: Use leverage to multiply your wealth. This could mean using financing to acquire more properties or reinvesting returns into further growth.

Our system includes a Five-Star Continuous Improvement approach and Five-Star Experts to coach you to win. It’s about continuously refining your strategies and leveraging expert advice to stay ahead.

Remember, thinking like a bank means always looking for ways to optimize and grow. It's about being strategic and proactive in your financial planning.”
