Carl Reiner is known as one of the brilliant comedic minds of his generation. A couple years ago he contributed heavily to an HBO special called “If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast”. The stories focused on people still achieving well into their ‘golden years’. Some parts were funny, some were inspiring, and overall an instant classic was created.
Mr. Reiner was responsible for such television hits as “The Dick Van Dyke” show and he has good friends like Mel Brooks that he hangs out with.
What does this have to do with real estate? Everything. Real estate is a ‘legacy’ left by many people to their children, other loved ones, places of worship, charities, etc. as a gift often times after they have passed. So, this begs the question, what have you done to further YOUR legacy today?
We get caught up in the day to day, as the days, weeks, months and even years pass. Next thing you know your high school buddies are all retiring, and you either are already retired or you aren’t. This is a personal decision best done by one’s own choices.
About 33 years ago I worked with a family whose goal was to put one investment property (residential house or condo) into their portfolio every 12 to 18 months. They continued on their plan and amassed quite a good fortune as appreciation took those initial properties to 3, 4, or even 5 times their original investment. Yes, even despite tremendous downturns in the market at times, they still outperformed the bond market, IRA’s, CD’s, etc.
Real estate is tangible, it is something worth considering. The market is approachable and great agents are waiting to help guide you. No pressure, no games, just excellent hospitality and honest dealings. Our legacy is at work too, and we are here today, just as our parents and grandparents did, investing our best into the dream of home ownership. What will your legacy be? Give us a call or send us an e-mailtoday, we will gladly help you craft a plan that will last for the ages.
