Book Review – Retire Early With Real Estate
Chad “Coach” Carson achieved financial independence by investing in real estate. He is a family man first and foremost and is focused on truly living life instead of the 9 to 5 grind. Chad recently published his book “Retire Early with Real Estate.”
The book talks about using real estate as a primary means of reaching financial independence (FI). The primary factor isn’t about money though. As Chad says in his book, it’s about “your values, your friends and family, your personal goals, and your life aspirations to guide all your decisions.”
This book highlights the need for those values in one’s life to escape the work grind. One must know his or her “why” of financial independence and what truly matters to them.
Chad brings these values to the forefront and uses real estate as a means to achieve what he wants in life. The book captures that idea and also provides a framework on how to live with purpose.
I want to bring this book to everyone’s attention not only because of how Coach Carson is living a better life with financial independence, but also because Chad is an excellent teacher.
Real estate can be extremely confusing at times, but when you have a knowledgeable resource like Chad, real estate doesn’t seem so confusing after all. The strategies addressed in the book include: House Hacking, Live-In-Then Rent, Live-In Flip Plan, BRRRR Plan, Debt Snowballs, 1031 Exchanges, Buy and Hold, Trade-Up Plan, and more!
Do What Matters
This is a main theme throughout the book: Do what truly matters in life. If money was no obstacle, what would you do with your life? That question has been asked time and time again and this book will drive that point home. Use real estate as a primary means to financial independence.
The book starts off by talking about why early retirement is an important and useful tool. Then one needs to set goals toward early retirement. The next step is building wealth. After wealth is achieved, you’ll learn the first steps and strategies that real estate provides. Finally, you’ll come full circle back to financial independence and retiring early.
I believe this book is a great introduction to real estate investing and what it could mean for your path to financial independence. The book tries to make it a one-stop shop but we all know that education never stops.
What I really enjoyed about this book is Chad’s approach to finances. He realizes a life should be lived to the fullest and one should not be controlled by money. He touches on why someone should utilize the benefits of real estate while incorporating values in life.
I highly recommend Retire Early with Real Estate to anyone who wants to invest in real estate as a primary means to financial independence. Chad’s resume speaks for itself and provides detailed information on achieving FI. The book is relatable to the average person and is not gimmicky in any way.
