Should you pay off debt or invest in real estate? Whether you’re young or old, rich or poor, in consumer debt or student debt, this is a question that almost everyone has. With inflation hitting decade-long heights, debt seems to be worth less and less every day. But, the other side to this coin is that asset prices, including real estate, are going up. Is there a right move to make, or are we stuck treading water without enough financial traction to stick to?
Hear answers to this question (and many more) on this week’s Seeing Greene, with your favorite host, agent, investor, and mortgage magician, David Greene. In this episode, you’ll hear topics touched on like whether to house hack or buy cash-flowing rentals, what to expect (and not expect) from your real estate agent, how to reduce (and account for) property taxes, how inflation and interest rates will affect the housing market and the best piece of advice David would give new real estate investors.
