There’s no place like home. Or is there?
Many investors pick properties in whatever area they happen to live in. That's a fabulous strategy if you happen to live in a great investment market.
We say, “Live where you want to live, but invest where the numbers make sense.” You may get a lot more bang for your buck by picking markets where prices, rents, market conditions and other factors all produce better profits.
But, is it possible that there’s more to investing than simply return on investment?
We think so. Many investors are interested in things like privacy, asset protection, lifestyle, and even personal security.
Of course, to put all of these choices in context, it’s important to have a broader perspective. A great way to see the bigger picture is to travel. The next best thing is to talk with people who travel.
In this episode, we talk with the most interesting “homeless” man you’ll probably never meet.
Our guest Simon Black is a “perpetual traveler”. He spends his time traveling the world, seeking opportunities and sharing his perspectives with people smart enough to listen.
An interesting perspective Simon shares are his observations about the relationship between global agriculture and opportunities in real estate investment. So if you’re hungry for unique investment strategies, this episode will whet your appetite!
