great question I often get is: Should I make it a goal to own my practice Real Estate?

 Real Estate is inherently a great investment

and can be a great vehicle to add to your wealth and predictable cash flow. And I would say yes – if you can make it work, then do it.

But there are a lot of variables. In some locations, the Real Estate is too expensive to own, and leasing may be the only way to go. Your practice building doesn’t have to be the cornerstone of your Real Estate investment. If it doesn’t work out due to the demographics of the area, don’t worry about it.

If you’re ready to invest in Real Estate, there are plenty of other avenues to build net worth. Don’t try to force something if it’s not the right time and right place.

Something we do with our Freedom Founders members is help them analyze the actual Real Estate that they own – whether it’s their practice building or other investments – to see if it’s producing the right returns based on risk, future appreciation, demographics, and the time it takes to manage them. 

Many times we help our members move from one investment to another that will give them a better return on their equity and time. 

All of the details of your specific situation and goals have to be taken into consideration - there is not a one-size fits all answer.

To your freedom!
