    The Wealth Strategy for Passive Real Estate Investors with Taylor Loht

    The Wealth Strategy for Passive Real Estate Investors with Taylor Loht

    Join Daniel Nickles with his guest Taylor Loht as he shares what he learned to be the most effective strategy for becoming a successful passive real estate investor. Before investing in real estate, Taylor belonged in the world of banking and consulting. But he didn't want his whole life to be there. Taylor talks about the books that pushed him to invest, why he thinks good investing should be boring, the red flags to take note of as passive investors, and why having FOMO is a danger to investing. 

    In this episode you will learn: 

    Once you dive into real estate, you'll know how much you didn't know 
    Taylor Loht on the shiny object syndrome 
    You can lose money on anything 

    What passive investors should watch out for the most in syndication 
    It's ok when you don't feel ok about a deal 

    About Taylor Loht: 

    Taylor is on a mission to teach Busy Professionals how they can invest in real estate without dealing with tenants, toilets, and termites. He highlights and distills the knowledge, experiences, and lessons of expert real estate investors through his podcast, YouTube Channel, and email newsletter Passive Wealth Strategies for Busy Professionals.  

     

    His goal is to help his listeners and investors build lives of abundance. He believes that building passive streams of income is the best path to wealth generation, not the typical, boring, "Don't have that $4 latte you enjoy twice a week." Enjoy your latte and buy some property!  

     

    He has partnered in over $50 million in Multifamily and Self Storage investments, as both a General Partner with his company NT Capital LLC, and Passive Investor through tax-advantaged retirement accounts. He invests remotely and never deals directly with tenants.  

     

    Taylor lives in Richmond, Virginia, where he started and runs the monthly Richmond Multifamily Investors Meetup, trains Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and actively contributes to BiggerPockets.
