Do you live, work, invest or plan to invest in the great state of Nevada?
Do you read the newspaper, listen to local media outlets, or overhear stories at the gym of multi-million dollar real estate investors and operators and wonder if you have what it takes to get involved?
As of July 1, 2022, the Silver State had a population of just over 3,100,000 people. Though you might think that is a paltry figure relative to the 333,000,000 people in the United States, you’d be misguided. Why? Because Nevada is growing much faster than other states around the country.
Over the past two years, the population in the United States has grown just 0.6%. However, Nevada, due to its beautiful landscape, pristine cities, and remarkable tourist destinations, has grown 2.4% - that is 4x the rate the country is growing.
This rapid growth rate centralized to the state of Nevada is spilling over into the housing market. Not only have prices gone up, but sales and other ancillary real estate...
With inflation roaring, companies laying off workers, and the economic landscape looking bleak - is it still possible to make money in real estate? Although the days of rock bottom interest rates might be over, what if we told you there is a strategy that can provide positive cash flow to the Washington-based investor even in today’s challenging market?
According to the 2020 census, Washington grew by over 1,000,000 people over the last 10 years! Let that sink in for a moment.

However, amidst this explosive growth, the housing units have only increased by 11%. Meaning, there will likely continue to be a supply and demand imbalance until housing units can increase materially to match the state’s robust growth.
A great real estate investment strategy one can utilize to take advantage of this trend is...
