“If you’re not paying rent, bank that money. Invest it in some way, put it in a CD, whatever you’re going to do, and get a little bit more for a down payment.”
“There’s always going to be a risk involved, as everyone knows with investing. Right now, that risk might be slightly higher, but I do think the market is going to rebound. I don’t think we’re always going to see these trends of these hot cities coming down. Just find that level of risk that you’re comfortable with. Whether it’s with investing, or really anything. And if you are comfortable with something, go ahead and do it. Don’t play the what-if game.”
