3 Key Points:

  1. Judgment is a contract that can be used as an asset when you would be starting your private real estate investment fund.
  2. Buying private debt helps both parties as it will offer a discount to the people in need and at the same time be able to provide returns to the investors.
  3. When working with others, you should be able to communicate effectively with those in charge of your money and know their involvement in those investments.
