    You might want to ask longtime member Aldo about that one before you sink a ton of cashish into it.

    Move to a cheaper cost of living area, put it in an index fund, and live off the dividends.

    Depends on where you get in. I have a couple of friends that bought in early near ski areas in Colorado that have done very well. Others that had to fight for customers in Denver and Boulder have done well but sold out early due to competition. Another place that gets over looked is towns near the state line like Pueblo and Sterling, very little competition and they charge higher prices than you could get before legalization due to all the folks coming over from next door to partake and smuggle back home.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    Just about zero has changed in Ak. Anyone who wanted to grew it anyway, as it was cheaper than laying out $40/week cash per kid so they could have dope.

    Yes. Dispos are very lucrative.

Property management, landscaping, enough signs of activity to deter rippers, a good story about how you're financing this renovation out of your hip pocket for the nosy neighbors, scheduling real tradesmen to move forward on what could be the real moneymaker of the whole deal - the renovation of the real properties themselves ...

    Get paid legal advice. If your attorney wants in, even better.

    Plug it in like a McDonald's franchise, keep logs and take measurements. That's how they figure out what works and what doesn't. Also, the more systematized and modular the production system, the smoother it can run, and the more can produced by 1 unit of human labor/time input.
    Yep... That's all there is to it...

    You could buy a couple FedEx routes and probably net 10% with semi active management.

    Looks cool.

    Found this on Reddit

    "FedEx contractor here. I currently have 9 FedEx Ground routes and spent about 1.5 years searching for the right listing, so I can give you plenty of advice. I looked at plenty of businesses but I ended up with FedEx routes for the same reason you are seeing: no marketing, no accounts receivable, no utilities or typical brick and mortar costs, and 5-day work weeks. All you worry about are employees and truck maintenance.
    I gave serious consideration to buying about 5 different FedEx listings. They ranged in price from $440,000 to $2,800,000 and for one reason or another I either passed or the deal couldn't be made. My advice to you is to be patient and find a listing where the contractor has been there for several years and has a manager in place. My personal opinion is to go for Line Haul if you have the capital, but if not I would go with Ground versus HD."
    Terje was right.

    Being a passive investor in quality real estate development opportunity has IRRs starting at 18%, and well up from there.

    Last guy I worked with netted 20.

    But you need connections and ability to decipher through the crap.

    1,000,000.00

    Get yourself a dealers license and head to the auction.

    Buy 20 or so $10,000.00 JAPANESE cars, and sell them for $13,000.00. That's $60,000.00 in profit every inventory flip. IN-house financing can yield 15% easy.

    You can buy a actual lot or rent a warehouse and set up shop online.


    Rentals are always a good bet. I am currently becoming a slum lord in Highlands Ranch.

    I feel like what you really need is just a good accountant and a solid plan when it comes to investment (I know that the thread is old but like everyone talks about investing now with the virus)

    Seems legit. I know one place everyone wants to invest at right now. respirators or face masks. But honestly investing is a lot of work that I don't really feel like a lot of people understand. I personally am more focused on saving money at the moment. I know that it might sound really old-fashioned of me but I feel like nowadays when everything is so super expensive there are a lot of ways for me to save money so that I have more time to travel and do all those other little things in life that make it so full of joy. With the marker being in the constant turmoil I feel like it doesn't matter if you invest or not. You will lose something at some point and it might just be big enough that you will regret the investment in the first place.

    I don't know how to get 10% ROI, but I do want to know how Beer Drinker edited Bobby's post.
