Radio Show Notes 24.05.16 Thursday - Stop Renting, Start Building Equity Faster: The ATM Edition's Down Payment Strategies

Stop Renting, Start Building Equity Faster: The ATM Edition's Down Payment Strategies

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

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! My name is Eric Willner, known as the Voice of Real Estate and founder of America's longest running daily radio show about real estate, and also creator of The Automatic Landlord System for Owning Cash Flowing Real Estate "Profitably and Hassle-Free." This show is a virtual real estate seminar in every episode.

Did you know?

Did you know that even small increases in your down payment can significantly lower your monthly mortgage payment and free up more cash flow?

Real estate offers the potential for multiple ROI streams, not just capital appreciation. You can also benefit from rental income, tax breaks, and depreciation deductions!

Today is Thursday, and it's the "ATM – About The Money" Edition of The Real Estate Show! Here, we continue to talk about why NOW is the perfect time to buy real estate using the theme: You Can Double Down On Your Down Payment!

Speaking of money, have you ever heard of "The Rules of Money"? There are some key principles everyone should understand to gain a financial edge. These include:

  • The 1% Rule: Rents should be near or above 1% of the Property Purchase Price.
  • The 4% Rule: A traditional guideline for retirement withdrawals.
  • The Rule of 72: This helps you calculate how long it takes for your money to double at a specific interest rate.

Understanding these basic rules is crucial for financial success. But there's more!

Did you know... by effectively managing your finances, you can significantly increase your down payment and secure your dream home sooner? Yes it can! Yes YOU can!

We had a fantastic Wednesday night workshop last night! It was the Financial Edge Academy Overview, where we're building a community of "Streetsmart – Money Smart" individuals. We also introduced you to the incredible 72-Hour Money Challenge!

This week marks the 20th week of 2024, and April was Financial Literacy Month! It's a dedicated time to promote financial education and empower people to make informed financial decisions. Even though April is over, the process of growing your financial literacy never ends. May is also Older Americans Month, focusing on honoring our senior citizens.

So, why is understanding "You Can Double Down on Your Down Payment" so important?

Here are 5 compelling reasons:

  1. Lower Monthly Payments: A larger down payment reduces your loan amount, leading to lower monthly payments and freeing up cash flow for other goals.
  2. Qualify for Better Loans: With a bigger down payment, you qualify for better loan terms, including lower interest rates, which saves you money over the loan's life.
  3. Build Equity Faster: Every mortgage payment contributes to equity. By putting more down upfront, you build equity faster, increasing your net worth.
  4. Peace of Mind: A larger down payment provides a safety net if property values dip slightly. It also reduces the risk of being underwater on your mortgage. (Text "Credit" to 561-861-2366 to learn more about building good credit!)
  5. Competitive Advantage: In a hot market, a larger down payment makes your offer more attractive to sellers, giving you an edge over other buyers.

Today's Show is Brought to You By: Don't let bad credit hold you back from achieving your real estate goals!

Let's continue to talk about why NOW is the time to buy real estate using the theme: You Can Double Down On Your Down Payment!

Another important point to remember is the Power of a 3-Pronged Approach, a 3-legged stool (no 1 or two-legged stools, 3+ is the key!). Here are my 3 core beliefs for financial success:

  1. Everyone Should Buy a House and Be a Homeowner. Owning a home offers stability, security, and the potential for wealth creation.
  2. Everyone Should Have Their House in Financial Order with a Written Financial/Life Plan. Budgeting, saving, and debt management are crucial for financial stability.
  3. Everyone Should Own a Business that Pays Them AND Gives Them Tax Benefits. Look for businesses that provide income and tax advantages.

We have a 5-Star System To WIN at The Money Game! We offer a 5-Star Continuous Improvement System AND have 5-Star Experts to Coach you to win!

Here's the breakdown of our winning formula:

Level 1: Save (More of What You Already Make)

This is the foundation. You need to consistently save a portion of your income. Every dollar saved is a dollar you can put towards your down payment or invest for future growth.

Level 2: Make (More/Invest What You Make, Growing It Wisely - Smarter Not Harder)

Don't just rely on your paycheck. Explore ways to increase your income. This could involve starting a side hustle, negotiating a raise, or investing your savings wisely. Remember, it's about making your money work smarter, not harder.

Level 3: Multiply (Leverage!)

This is where real estate comes in! Leverage the power of real estate to multiply your wealth. A down payment allows you to leverage the bank's money to purchase a property that appreciates in value over time. This can significantly increase your net worth.

The Power of 3: Triple Play, Triple Crown, Holy Trinity... Three! 3 is the Smallest Prime Number, besides 1. Simple!

There's a reason the number 3 is so significant. It represents a strong foundation, like a 3-legged stool. You wouldn't want a 1-legged or 2-legged stool, would you? It wouldn't be stable! The same goes for your financial strategy. These 3 principles work together to create a secure and prosperous future.

We're almost out of time for today, but before we go, let's recap the key takeaways:

  • Real estate offers multiple ROI streams, not just appreciation.
  • By doubling down on your down payment, you can secure a lower monthly payment, qualify for better loans, build equity faster, gain peace of mind, and have a competitive edge in the market.
  • Financial Literacy Month may be over, but financial education is an ongoing process.
  • The 3-pronged approach – buying a house, having a financial plan, and owning a business – is the foundation for financial success.
  • Our 5-Star System helps you win at the money game by focusing on saving, making more money, and leveraging real estate.

Remember, it's a stone-cold fact that real estate is the BEST investment. Period. It's the IDEAL investment! Don't just listen to The Real Estate Show, use it to take action!
