Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

Episode 010: The Truth About Passive Real Estate Investing with Seth Bradley


Thinking of short-term rentals for your passive investments? Hold it right there – because things like short-term rentals or fix and flip investments are far from being passive. And so, you have to educate yourself first, as much as you can, before dipping your toes into the world of real estate investing. Knowledge is power. 

Most of the real estate that people want to invest in isn’t actually as passive as they think. The truth is – it requires a strong concoction of hard work, networking, and perseverance. And so, it’s important that you know what you’re getting into, and that’s part of mindful investing. 

In this episode, let’s welcome Seth Bradley, a former Big Law attorney turned real estate investor and host of The Passive Income Attorney Podcast. Being in the real estate investing space for 10 years now, Seth moved the majority of his portfolio from residential properties to commercial real estate. Listen in to educate yourself more about real estate investing, passive vs. active investments, and ways to get started in real estate investing.
