How to Use Your Home Equity to Retire Early

How to Use Your Home Equity to Retire Early

Episode #849

Have home equity? Well, you could retire early, thanks to it. If you bought a house from 2009 up until 2021, there’s a good chance you could be sitting on tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars in equity. But equity just sitting in a property isn’t doing much for you unless you can use it to retire early! Want to know how? Stick around; we’ll show you!

We’re back on another Seeing Greene where average investor Rob Abasolo joins buff, strong, beautiful, and bald David Greene to answer your real estate investing questions. In today’s show, we talk to Anthony, a slow-and-steady investor who’s built up an impressive amount of equity over the past decade. He wants to retire early and use his equity to increase monthly cash flow. But what’s the best way to do it?

Next, we share some public loathing of HOAs (homeowners associations) and how they can be the bane of your investing existence, plus when it’s time to sell a property in an HOA. Finally, an investor who is STRUGGLING to pay off her HELOC asks what the next best move to make is: work hard to pay it off the old-fashioned way or leverage ANOTHER investment to become debt-free faster.
