Our guest, David Smith worked for Panasonic, lived in Nicaragua, moved to Panama in 2009, and flipped condo contracts BEFORE he invested in agriculture himself in Paraguay! AND that was after he did a LOT of due diligence on the company and region himself.

Now David works for Paraguay Ag Invest and helps investors worldwide to invest in a stable commodity in a β€œsleepy” country for 12%+ returns.

πŸ‘‰ Tip – Agriculture and land are one of the TOP investments that the richest 1% invest in for GENERATIONAL wealth!

What if after you listened to Wagner in November of 2021, you bought a turnkey rental from B2R Direct then? How would you be sitting now? Well, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say you could be sitting on a $100,000 EQUITY gain! The Florida market is on fire! πŸ”₯

On top of that, you would be looking at a 22% increase in rent!

Now will that continue? Probably not, especially with the Fed raising rates BUT you can still get instant equity when you buy a new build from Wagner’s company who still averages 30-40 applicants PER UNIT for rent. And he ONLY sells to investors!

πŸ‘‰ Tip/Trivia – Actress Eva Mendes, singer Ariana Grande and inventor Thomas Edison were all born in Florida.

Money goes IN tax FREE, πŸ’² GROWS tax FREE πŸ’² AND can be taken OUT tax FREE! πŸ’² Sound too good to be true?

It is called a Health Savings Account or HSA for short. In addition to IRAs, 401ks, life insurance and offshore accounts like we discussed in previous episodes, an HSA can be very beneficial to cut your tax bill AND grow money tax free.

Check out episodes 003, 006, 014, 015, 025, 035, 041 and 043 for more info on other tax savings strategies.

πŸ‘‰ Tip – Quest Trust and Specialized Trust, both of whom I use allow you to SELF-DIRECT HSAs in alternative investments!!

Rising rates. Inflation. Recession fears. Returning stagflation? And these are all reasons why you MIGHT still want to refinance??

If you are tired of β€œTraditional Banks” like I am, you will want to listen in. Timothy Hero, who last was on for Episode 017 returns to share what has happened since in the mortgage industry and how many of his lenders may be BETTER for you! For instance, some of his lenders take the HIGHEST credit score between Equifax, Transunion and Experian for qualification versus the MIDDLE or even LOWEST score that other traditional banks do.

Tim can do lending in 45 states but NOT in Utah, Nevada, the Dakotas or Alaska.
