Have you ever thought about investing in the wide world of real estate but weren’t sure whether it was for you? Today’s guest, Michele Cagan, says that it probably IS for you…but maybe not in the way you’d traditionally think. Sure, you can go fix up and flip houses or become a landlord, but Michele shares LOTS of other ways to invest in real estate as well, and gives us five reasons why you should at least think about it. Whether you’re a seasoned real estate investor or newbie, there’s something for everyone today in Michele’s visit to the basement!
In our headlines segment: what’s the WORST age to take social security? How does the system work in the first place? While it’s complicated, we’ll share the worst of the worst AND give you some basics on how to start thinking about YOUR payout. In our second headline, Charles Schwab is seeing HUGE returns from their new hybrid robo-meets-human advisor program. It seems these people chasing robos might just want some human advice…strange (smell the sarcasm in that sentence? We’ll explain.)
After a dose of Doug’s amazing trivia, we’ll throw out the Haven Life Line to a lucky caller, as usual. Just another fun day here in the basement…
