  • by

Podcast by BiggerPockets

How does a HELOC work? Can you use one to start investing in real estate when you’re low on cash? And, if you do decide to go the rental property investing route, how do you ensure you’ll retire a millionaire? If these questions have been keeping you up at night, worry not; David and Rob’s real estate wisdom is about to make those early retirement and financial freedom dreams a reality. 

Welcome back to another Seeing Greene. As always, your expert investor co-hosts, David Greene and Rob Abasolo, are here to answer any and every real estate investing question you have. First, we answer, “Is an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) EVER worth building?” With the sky-high construction and labor costs, do these tiny homes make more sense now than ever? Next, we’ll break down how a HELOC (home equity line of credit) works, then David and Rob explain how they’d invest $300K in TODAY’s market and counsel a landlord/broker on how to retire a millionaire with real estate.
