Here's Journal Club 4-1-22! Every week, I hold a JOURNAL CLUB. After filtering through the articles on the web, I present a few that impacted my life this week. Be safe and stay well!

 

 


  • Generally speaking, every parent wants the best for their children and will do anything for them. However, the definition of “best” differs significantly from one family to another. Some “gifts” that we leave for our kids can be incredibly beneficial, while others can be potentially damaging. So what are some of these “potentially dangerous gifts,” and how can one avoid them? The Physician on FIRE covers it all in the article – The Worst Financial Gifts to Give to Your Children.
  • It’s not surprising that renters can be tough on their homes simply because they have very little invested in their homes compared to homeowners. So as real estate investors, how can you protect your hard-earned, valuable assets against the damage caused by renters? The author of R.E.Tipster shares quick and straightforward tips to safeguard your property – TENANT PROOF: How to Make Your Rentals Indestructible.
  • Do stock market drops and growing inflation rates make you anxious? The author of Retire by 40 suggests focusing on a simple yet vital aspect to keep your finances on track amidst market volatility. So what’s the big secret? The author shares it all in the article – Focus on Your Saving Rate When the Market Fluctuates.
  • Ground-up real estate developments can be considered “high-risk, high-return” investments for a good reason. Primarily due to the potential challenges you need to overcome. Despite the possible pitfalls, many real estate investors choose to invest in ground-up developments to reap the rewarding returns. So how can one go about investing in these assets with minimum risks and maximum returns? The author over at Bigger Pockets shares key points to get started – Three Tips for Passively Investing in a Ground-Up Real Estate Development.

That's all for this week! I hope this week's journal club was helpful.
