When you’re dipping your toes into the investment water, it’s tricky to know where to start. Today, we’re sharing our guide to getting started as a passive investor.
Investing is one of those things that seems a heck of a lot scarier than it is — and you can trust us on that one. See, financial news outlets and finance bros (sigh) love to make investing seem complicated and unapproachable…
…and we’re here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way.
Because investing — as long as you’re investing in the right things — is the most powerful way that exists to build wealth, and it’s the best thing you can do long-term for your money, cash flow, and income.
And, to do it well, you *don’t* need to spend your days day trading, downloading apps that “invest” your extra pennies, or buying random stock and hope it turns out well for you.
The only thing you really need to do to get started with investing? To do your homework, decide how much cash you’re willing to invest, determine your investment timeline, and start now. Compound interest and capital gains are goooooood things, and capitalizing on them can make a big difference.
What’s passive investing?
Passive investing, which we like to define as an investment strategy that helps to build your wealth in the long term, is a lot less hands-on than what you usually think of with the word “investing.”
Instead of trading stocks or managing a portfolio, passive investing involves a much more long-term strategy — think: buying index funds or ETFs or investing in multifamily apartment syndication. Passive investing is less risky than active investing, and you’ll usually see bigger returns with it, too.
Wondering about some of the biggest benefits of passive investing? There are a ton, including:
- You aren’t dealing with a million portfolio management fees (lower expenses, hellllooo!)
- The initial cash investment doesn’t have to be huge.
- It’s hands-off — which means you don’t have to constantly check your numbers.
- Passive investing = maximum returns.
- Passive investing is simple — not uber-complicated like some types of investments truly can be.
- Two words: Tax. Benefits.
- It’s typically lower risk than more active forms of investment.
So… tell me more about passive investing
There are a bunch of ways you can get started as a passive investor, and there are different benefits to each segment. However, the easiest — and most effective — way to get started comes with investing in real estate… specifically in apartment buildings, or multi-family apartment syndication.
Plus, it’s not just buying an apartment building. It’s not just investing in commercial real estate. It’s way more fun (and lucrative) than that.
How does multifamily apartment investing work?
Multifamily apartment syndication (our fave thing ever) is simpler than it sounds. A bunch of people (also known as a group of investors) will come together, combine their pooled equity, invest their money into real estate, and purchase multifamily apartments for investment.
When it comes to these investment opportunities, there’s usually one party involved that’s doing all the dirty work — think: searching for the right multifamily properties, underwriting, finding investors, etc. — that we usually call the General Partner.
You’d come in with most investors as a Limited Partner — just as important to the deal, but in a passive sort of way. You’re not the one who has to communicate with everyone else, you don’t have to deal with day-to-day problems in the rental property, and you don’t have to dot the T’s and cross the I’s when it comes to the investors or to the properties.
You just do some real estate investing, let it grow, and eventually see a good return. From rental income to multifamily units, the multifamily property and apartment complex arena is a pretty dang good place to be.
After all, apartment complexes and rental properties make you a mini real estate mogul — and when you don’t have to put down a massive amount of cash OR do all of the due diligence alone? Heck yes.
It’s a pretty sweet deal. 😗😗
