FAR 190 DT Investments, Jim Beach

Expected Air Date: 9/24/18


Hello everyone, it’s time to get involved in Real Estate. There are 85 major ways to make money in real estate and several variations of some of those methods. The opportunities are numerous and the variety is nearly endless, but all of real estate investing can be summarized around three primary activities:
  1. Buy with the intent to improve and re-sell relatively quickly.
  2. Buy with the intent to create income with the property for a longer term.
  3. Invest in the activities of 1 or 2.
I’ve been looking for someone who manages a REIT to come on the show and talk about the opportunities there and you regular listeners know that I have nothing against REITs or crowd-funding real estate. Both have interesting possibilities, albeit not such a great return on the money. If you have a little bit more money and are an accredited investor, you’re going to want to stay tuned today. My good friend Jim Beach is going to be on the show in a few moments and we are going to talk about, among other things, and incredible private offering that is set to take on the big boys. This fund invests only in short-term flips. Full disclosure, I’m one of the partners in the firm. Jim is a former Coca Cola executive but long-time entrepreneur. He founded a technology company and sold out years ago, wrote the best-selling book, “School for Startups” and for the past several years has been the host of a radio show called School for Startups. He has had everybody who is anybody in the world of business on his show. Jim travels the world teaching the principles of entrepreneurship.
