The Undisputed Worst Performing Investment In America

DFY Real Estate


There is an investment so common that roughly 70% of Americans are contributing to it. But when you look at it purely from an investor’s mindset, it becomes the single-worst performing investment in the United States.

In real estate, sometimes all you need is to change your perspective just slightly, and the game changes instantly.

Most of us have been taught that purchasing a primary residence is the most important investment we will ever make in our life. But if you take a closer look at the deal we all get and analyze it exclusively from an investment perspective, it becomes painfully apparent it’s not a good deal.

Steve and I are all for paying off your home. However, if you’re looking to replace your income with real estate, the timing of owning your property is so very critical.

Considering your primary residence as an investment property opens up a lot of great opportunities, and you’ll quickly learn there’s a way to tap into some of that otherwise trapped equity.

Today, we’re going to highlight the most damaging aspects of a primary home investment deal and show you how you can turn it into something more powerful.

We want to share a different way of thinking that’s helped us and thousands of our clients move further along the path of income replacement through real estate.

If you’d like to learn more about this topic, we’ve set up a special page on our website just for that:
