There is another way to invest in real estate for a lot less money outlay, and yet still create a highly valuable passive asset for your wealth portfolio. This is done through what we call Online Real Estate. Today, we discuss how you can start your own portfolio of quality websites, by building or buying online businesses.
Liz and I have come across many people trying to get into the traditional real estate market, and they are finding it really hard to do so. Especially in Sydney and Melbourne. Or, they’re looking for a way to invest in real estate without having to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars, or be overly leveraged to the banks. Here’s an alternative!
Liz Raad: Now we all know how much money there is to be made in real estate, of course.
Matt: Also, what the biggest problem is today (especially if you’re a younger person) is how do you get enough money to get into, say the Sydney market or the Melbourne market?
A Cheaper Alternative To Investing In Traditional Real Estate…
Liz: Yes, so what do you do? If you don’t have the deposit, if you don’t have that money, if you don’t have that cashflow to even be able to save that, what can you do? Can you invest in something?
Matt: Or if you’re at this stage in the market where some people are saying it’s run a bit too far. Maybe you’re not sure where the marketplace is going to go. So perhaps you’re in that position where you’re not prepared to risk a million dollars (or half a million dollars) on a big asset like real estate.
Buying Virtual Real Estate…
Liz: So, what we want to show you is perhaps a different way you could think about that. Because what we do is, we invest in online real estate. Basically, we buy websites that are completely online. There’s no offline business component to them. They just make their money online. They’re like a little piece of online real estate and they make returns in cash flow through very automated systems, by using things like advertising and affiliate products.
We Buy And Renovate Websites Just Like Traditional Property
So, what we do is we buy working systems, up and running websites, that make money. The great thing about that is, instead of having to spend $900,000 or a million dollars on property, we can spend $10,000, $20,000, $50,000 or even $500 on buying a website that makes money. A website that makes us money and grows in value. Actually, our strategy is to buy them and renovate them just like you would a property.
Websites Are Highly Valuable Assets
Matt: And, you need to be aware too, they’re not just pretty online brochures. These websites are working businesses that make real money and as a result, they are actually considered as virtual real estate. So, they have a value, and are a highly valuable asset for you and your family.
We have lots of students who have come to that big sell day. Where they sell these websites that they have bought for just $10,000, $20,000 and they’re selling them for 3 to 5 times that amount of money. This is because they’ve built them up and renovated them.
Virtual Real Estate can equal VERY high cash flow returns PLUS capital growth
So, the return on your money can actually be quite big. But we want you to realize, these aren’t just for cash flow. They are valuable assets as well.
Virtual Real Estate – an alternative to traditional real estate
Liz: This is a way to get into a whole new market place so that’s the exciting part. There’s not just offline real estate now, there is online. So maybe that’s something you want to investigate.
Matt: You might want an alternative to traditional real estate assets. Especially since we all know the rich have real estate assets that work for them while they sleep, and now you can do that with websites, and you can start a lot smaller as well.
Liz: Yes, starting with a few hundred dollars.
