12/25/11: Ask The Guys – From Bangalore to Botswana

Happy Holidays from The Real Estate Guys™!

On this week’s Christmas edition of the show, we are giving our answers to a collection of your questions that are all over the map. 

No, really.  We mean it.  These questions are from ALL over the map!

The Real Estate Guys™ podcast is now being downloaded in over 150 countries.  So we get Ask The Guys questions from EVERYWHERE.  It’s very cool.

In studio this lovely Christmas Day:

  • Your holly jolly host, Robert Helms
  • Your ho-ho co-host, Russell Gray
  • Our Santa Claus understudy, the Godfather of Real Estate, Bob Helms

After landing the sleigh on the roof of the radio station, we stopped by the breakroom and loaded up on some egg nog.  We thought getting a little red-nosed might help us see our way through the holiday fog so we could deliver our answers to all of your very interesting questions.

But Botswana?  Really?  Do you even know where Botswana is? 

We didn’t either.  But here’s what we’re discovering:  No matter where you live or invest, as long as you have the basic right to own private property, you have opportunities to make money with real estate.  Even Botswana.

And what’s awesome is that while many of the technical details are different from country to country, the basic principles and strategies of real estate investing are very similar.  So no matter where you’re from or where you’re investing, the answers to the questions your fellow listeners have can have relevance to you.  It also tells you how important it is to have experienced local technical advisors and service providers in every jurisdiction in which you invest.  But that’s a topic for another episode.

For now, listen in and learn how much you have in common with real estate investors half a world away.  It really is a small world after all!  Maybe that’s how Santa’s able to get all those gifts delivered in just one night.  Of course, digital downloads make things a little easier too.  😉
