Having a diverse passive investment portfolio is important for many reasons. Not only can it help you withstand crashes in certain asset classes, but it also decreases your risk tremendously. Our guest today, Dale Corpus, is here to share with us the importance of having a diverse portfolio. Since 2006, Dale has been investing in income-producing real estate and has recently added commercial real estate syndications in workforce housing, mobile home parks, and self-storage as a way to scale and grow his investing business. In this episode, we learn about the different roles Dale has had in real estate and how a growing family pushed him further towards passive income. We also learn more about the different asset classes he’s invested in, how he keeps up to date with what’s happening in his portfolio, and why mortgage note buying excites him the most. Dale also walks us through how he is managing his own retirement account and the different ways he leverages debt and equity. You don’t want to miss out, so tune in today!
