House FIRE | Ep 414

In this episode: the value of a door, the hour FIRE method, tax breaks, focusing on income, and return on hassle.

Many of our listeners have tuned in to hear our guests discuss the real estate market, mortgages, and taxes related to obtaining property. However, many of us on the road to FI may not realize how scaling your properties can act as a mutual fund-like portfolio. On this week’s episode, we are joined by our new in-house real estate expert, author, and podcaster, Alan Corey. Alan sheds light on what expanding your real estate portfolio can look like from a larger standpoint, and how approaching investment from a spreadsheet rather than a lifestyle point of view can ultimately offer greater returns in the long run. While we know many listeners may be apprehensive to consider investing in multiple or larger real estate properties, or how this may not seem like a feasible option, this episode is available to you to educate and offer the mental framework on how to approach real estate in a way that it can be achievable!

At least once in most of our FI journeys, we have pondered what our life would look like if we started earlier. Maybe you have even wondered what value could’ve been gained if you had started in your teenage years. Well, for some context into the possibilities decision that could provide, we decided to have 17 year old listener Devin on the podcast to discuss what life can look like when you go against the cultural norm of going to college, and instead opting for an entrepreneurial and FI friendly lifestyle. Oftentimes we mention that there are rewards that come with stepping out of your comfort zone, and the same can be said for going against the societal norm and carving out your own path! For our younger audience who may be interested in getting started with their FI journey, let this episode be a useful resource and reassurance that this journey can begin no matter your age!
