On January 6, 2016, Jason Hartman went on Brian Bain's Investor in the Family podcast and left little doubt that a long term buy and hold strategy for income properties is the path to real wealth. Brian Bain is a stock market investor, and wants Jason to break down the basics of investing in real estate rather than stocks. So Jason shows how a 30 year mortgage can lead to serious wealth production in multiple dimensions, unlike the single dimension of stocks (buy low, sell high).
Brian fully admits to not being a professional investor, but aims to help people protect themselves from big mistakes while outperforming their benchmarks by building (and, most importantly, sticking to) their investment plan.
