Investing in International Real Estate For Dummies 1st Edition

Welcome to Investing in International Real Estate For Dummies, and thank you for choosing me to guide you through the process of building a successful real estate portfolio. I’m so excited to be sharing this journey with you!

If I were a betting man, I’d wager that you’re drawn to real estate because you want the chance to create financial security — and, over time, real wealth. You love the idea of working for yourself, of being in charge of your own destiny, of being liberated from the boring, 9-to-5 routine. You want to feel excited about what you do every day.

Those were certainly the things that attracted me to real estate more than 15 years ago. Back then, I had a good, grown-up job at an investment bank in the City of London. I was earning fantastic money for a young, single guy. I was doing all the things I thought I was supposed to do with my life, the way I had been taught and the way that society suggested. But I was miserable. I was desperate to escape it all and work for myself. Real estate seemed a tangible, achievable way to do that. I wasn’t wrong.

I started small, renting out a room in my own house to start with. Then I rented out another room after that. Then I converted the garage to make another room, until I’d maximized that first house. Then I took on another rental property, and another after that. Pretty soon, I was expanding into other real estate strategies — and that was when things started to get really exciting. Within ten years, I’d built up a diverse, robust real estate portfolio worth more than £20 million (or more than $25 million), and I was running my own group of successful real estate businesses transacting many millions worth of property each and every year.
