3 Key Points:

  1. Never sell your real estate properties. You can replace it with other properties to scale your portfolio, but don't sell it unless absolutely needed as it has the potential to cash flow.
  2. Always educate yourself and learn new things as what you don’t know would cost you money, time, and wasted opportunities.
  3. It’s always a good time to invest in real estate. It’s only a question of where would you invest as there are a lot of deals and asset classes that you can start with.
