Accredited Income Property Investment Specialist (AIPIS)

The examples of international real estate investing in this episode will make you run out to invest in U.S. properties. All aspects of the U.S. market seem too good to be true, compared to Australia and France. Financially speaking, 30-year fixed rate mortgages, low-interest rates and loan-to-value ratios are more attractive in the U.S.


Our guest, Matt Jones became a property investor in Australia after reading a single book cover to cover. He used his day job as a mailman to investigate properties for sale, seeing as many as a thousand homes a day. Today, he invests in joint ventures that provide passive income, allowing him to live the life he wants. Through his Property Resource Shop website, he offers DIY kits to get you started on your path to financial freedom.
