Episode Breakdown


Passive vs Active Real Estate Investing

Dr. Peter Kim explains the key differences between passive and active real estate investing. He invites listeners to reflect on their financial goals, risk tolerance, time, and level of expertise when building their own mix of active or passive real estate investing.

“The best approach when it comes to active versus passive investing really is up to you… your financial goals, your risk tolerance, your time, your level of expertise, how much all of that you want to put together and spend on your own — Dr. Peter Kim


Determine Your Time, Energy, and Financial Resources

Peter talks about how listeners should figure out how much time, energy and money or financial resources they have to devote when investing. He emphasizes the need to look at their financial goals in the years to come.

“That’s always the first step, figure out where you want to be in one year, three years, five years, 10 years, how much passive income do you want to have.” — Dr. Peter Kim


Do Your Research

Dr. Kim reminds listeners to do their due diligence, urging them to study the deals and get to know the sponsors. He encourages everyone to leverage their time best by researching people, communities, and resources that match their financial goals. 

“If you know somebody firsthand who is investing with a certain company, they’ve had a good experience, they’ve done well, that’s a great place to start. Because you know that at least on one level, you can trust them again.” — Dr. Peter Kim


Understand the Basic Strategies of Passive Real Estate Investing.

Dr. Peter reflects on how important it is to educate oneself on the different types of investing. He invites listeners to try courses in the Passive Real Estate Academy and join the Passive Income Docs community where they can stay informed from the community and learn from experts.

“Without asking good questions, you’re not going to get great answers.” — Dr. Peter Kim


Learn From the Example of Others

Dr. Peter Kim reminds everyone that they don’t have to do everything alone. They can learn from the experience of others by finding a community of people who are already doing passive real estate investing and other investments for multiple streams of income.

“The faster way to learn on your own is to learn from other people who have successes and who have made mistakes ” Dr. Peter Kim


Take Action as Soon as You Can

Dr. Peter Kim closes by inviting everyone to take action. He stresses that it can even be in small amounts, like taking the time to learn and invest in one’s own financial education.

If you talk about the greatest transfer of wealth, it always happens in recessions, it happens at downtimes. When people are scared… they’re selling off their assets, meaning they’re selling their properties at a discount, and other people are able to pick them up.Dr. Peter Kim
