From $80 Thousand to $1 Million Net Worth with 26 Year Old Joe Costanza

Hello friends, and welcome to another episode of Truth About Real Estate Investing Show for Canadians.

We are a show all about truth-seeking from leading investors who have demonstrated repeatable, systematic success.

To get the most from this show, one has to have an open mind and be interested in continuous learning.

For me, I’m currently reading Annie Duke’s “Thinking in Bets: Marking Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All The Facts”. Annie is a Poker champion with a Ph.D. in Psychology, and I’m really enjoying the book. 

As an analytical thinker who despises risk and an admitted sufferer of analysis paralysis, I enjoy learning more about how humans think and make decisions.

For example, we’re all real estate investors here…

Most of the stars have aligned to make investing in real estate make a ton of sense for investment and, at a minimum, a hedge against inflation and housing affordability for our kids.  

But talk and share as much about real estate as we do, the vast majority of the people we know do not invest as we do.

There are a million reasons not to invest; we all know them and a million more reasons to invest. At the end of the day, it’s one’s values and worldview that drive decisions, not just facts, figures, charts and data.

I know many people who say they won’t invest because of tenant risk, as in property damage and tenant-friendly laws and tribunal.

To the professional real estate investor, we screen diligently, provide a great product, and have the Landlord Credit Bureau to hold tenants accountable to their credit report for both good and bad.

Another common reason not to invest is to avoid debt. 

What’s odd, though, is when I ask how their kids will pay for post-secondary education or professional school like doctor, dentist, lawyer etc., their expectation is for their child to take out loans… 

This brings us to this week’s guest, 26 year old Joe Costanza.

From $80 Thousand to $1 Million Net Worth with 26 Year Old Joe Costanza

When we first met Joe, he was 24 years old and had saved $80,000 from holding down multiple jobs at the same time since he was 16. 

A month later, Joe had his first investment property. 

Recently, Joe was complaining to me about how expensive properties are these days. 

I then asked him to review for me what his net worth is today vs. what it was when we first met… From $80,000 to over $1,000,000 in just two years.

The results are astounding. If you don’t believe me, ask an entrepreneur with a start-up business. Or ask around 30 somethings if their net worth is over $1,000,000.

Add to that, parents who, while supportive in giving young Joseph food and a roof over his head but were not fans of Joe investing in real estate, having tenants and taking on debt.

This is Architect Joe’s story on how he went from $80,000 to $1,000,000.

Please enjoy the show!
