Are You A Landlord In Negative Cashflow and Dipping Into Your Savings? 🤔
𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭’𝐬 𝐠𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐧….
I remember back when I couldn’t wait till the 1st of each month to deposit my rent cheques. I was super happy to pull out those cheques and accept those email transfers.
Felt like I was set for life and 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈 𝐦𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐚 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐝𝐞𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐮𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐥𝐬
So, each month I would look at my bank account and see the rental income come in… woohoo!! This will be my 𝐩𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐢𝐧𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭
The longer I keep holding onto this property, the more I will make. This is a long game. This is how the wealthy stay wealthy. They buy real estate and hold it for long periods of time.
𝐀 𝐟𝐞𝐰 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐠𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐛y, rates have gone up and now I make a little less each month. But I know that the decision to buy was still good. I can handle this rate increase. It’s not affecting my lifestyle.
𝐑𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐠𝐨 𝐮𝐩 𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧 that’s ok! It’s just temporary…It’s going to be ok. The government can’t keep increasing those rates but I don’t have control over the government. So, I am more worried now.
𝐑𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐠𝐨 𝐮𝐩 𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐜𝐭𝐞𝐝. Now I am getting stressed It’s starting to affect my lifestyle.
What should I do? I thought buying this investment property would set me up for life.

I dip into my savings fund! My real estate investment has gone from an asset to a liability now. Bye bye money
Did I really make a good decision to buy that rental investment property???

If any of this resonates, here’s what’s going on:
𝐋𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐝𝐬 𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐰 𝐮𝐩 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 “𝐎𝐥𝐝 𝐒𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐥” 𝐰𝐚𝐲 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 - “Old School” thinking is work hard, save, save, save work with a financial planner, pay off your mortgage asap and retire with a house that is free and clear.
𝐁𝐔𝐓 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐬 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐠𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐨 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤 𝐚𝐧𝐲𝐦𝐨𝐫𝐞 It may have worked with our parents’ day and age but not today.
Today is different. 𝐂𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐥𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐢𝐬 𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐞𝐫 and our incomes have NOT caught up with our expenses.
Landlords need to change their approach to “𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐒𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐨𝐥” thinking, which is a 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐠𝐲 𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐲𝐞𝐝 𝐛𝐲 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐰𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡𝐲.
