    Your First Real Estate Syndication: What It's Like From Beginning To End. Could This Be Part Of Your Retirement Plan?

    Your First Real Estate Syndication: What It's Like From Beginning To End. Could This Be Part Of Your Retirement Plan?

    What do you do if you want to get involved in real estate as part of your retirement plan, but you don't want to be a landlord? That's easy: Invest in real estate syndications.
    A syndication is basically a partnership between a group of investors to purchase some kind of asset. There’s one person or a team of people who act as the sponsor or syndicator, and then there are the investors, who put in money, which is usually used for the down payment, and sometimes partially for improvements to the property, once it’s acquired. Investors in these syndications often receive quarterly distributions, followed by a large payoff once the property eventually sells.
    In today's episode, I'm going to run you through my first syndication investment, which I got into in the summer of 2018. My goal is to show you that it's not complicated, and if you get to know the right people, these can be very safe, very lucrative investments.
    I believe that real estate can really accelerate the growth of your retirement nest egg, while at the same helping you avoid the volatility of the equities markets.
    Check out today's episode and see how easy it is to get real estate into your retirement plan.

    Tim Leffel Interview: Mexico as a $2,000/Month Geographic Plan B For Your Retirement

    What if you can't afford to retire? What if half of your nest egg gets wiped out in the coming economic collapse? Or what if you could retire five years earlier by finding an alternative place to live for less than half the price of the US?
    Today I'm very proud to have Tim Leffel on the show. He's an award-winning travel writer and author of https://www.worldscheapestdestinations.com/ (The World’s Cheapest Destinations), https://travelwriting2.com/ (Travel Writing 2.0), and the living abroad book https://www.cheaplivingabroad.com/ (A Better Life for Half the Price).
    He is also editor of the narrative web publication https://www.perceptivetravel.com/ (Perceptive Travel), named “best online travel magazine” by NATJA and “best travel blog” by SATW.
    This guy is a true expert on living abroad. Currently he's in Guanajuato, Mexico, living well for less than what his mortgage payment was when he lived in Florida.

    Jail the Homeless? And a Geographic Plan B For Your Retirement Years

    Jail the Homeless? And a Geographic Plan B For Your Retirement Years

    One of the best, most simple explanations I've ever heard for economics is from the book “The Armchair Economist,” by Steven Landsburg. He wrote that most of economics can be summarized in four words: “People respond to incentives.”
    People respond to incentives.
    Here in Portland, we've incentivized homelessness and lawlessness with our attitudes and legislation essentially encouraging our homeless friends to do drugs and commit whatever crime necessary to support their habit. All while letting people camp pretty much anywhere within the city limits.
    I talk about this because much of the problem could have been prevented, but it makes us feel good to make it as easy as possible for people to engage in self-destructive behavior. And it makes us feel bad to incarcerate the less fortunate for committing crimes.
    Also, I briefly talk about the concept of a "Geographic Plan B." This is basically the idea that if you can't afford to retire where you are, there are many options out there where you can live for MUCH less. It's worth having a Plan B in place, just in case your retirement plans change down the line.
    And on the next episode I'm talking with a true expert in living abroad and all the things that go with it. He's Tim Leffel and I guarantee you're going to get a lot out of it.
    Thanks for joining me today and it would mean the world to me if you'd subscribe to this podcast and maybe give me a positive review.

    What is the REAL Inflation Rate? How Will it Affect YOUR Retirement?

    What is the REAL Inflation Rate? How Will it Affect YOUR Retirement?

    Inflation And Your Retirement Plan

    In today's episode of the Rogue Retirement Lounge Podcast, I'm briefly going to cover yet another reason why you shouldn't pay off your home mortgage early and then we're gonna have some real talk about inflation.

    Inflation and taxes are the two biggest destroyers of your retirement wealth, so it's worth talking about them. I know, nobody wants to talk about inflation, but it needs to be done. Inflation is insidious, so you need to have it as part of your retirement planning calculus.

    The Rogue Retirement Lounge Podcast (www.rogueretirementlounge.com) is your source of retirement planning info, specifically for self-employed people and entrepreneurs.

    If you have any questions you'd like me to answer on a future episode, send me an email at matt@rogueretirementlounge.com.
