I'm planning to use the equity in my home to buy a second property and rent it out — here's my exact financial roadmap 2020/10/09 20:13:21 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Investment properties are a tried-and-true path to passive income and financial stability for many households. Financing an investment property takes more cash than a regular mortgage in many cases, as you have to put down a larger down payment and budget for additional landlord-related expenses. If you have a lot of equity built up in your home, it may be possible to leverage it to buy your first investment property. Want to know what a financial planner can do for you? Check out Personal Finance Insider's free e-book » I'm lucky to know a handful of wealthy people, and one commonality I've noticed among them is real estate investing. While there are pros and cons to various types of properties, I'm interested in building my own wealth through a strategy that includes residential real estate investing. So far, I've made small real estate investments through REIT ETF purchases and a modest investment at Fundrise. In the long-term, I'm looking to level up my real estate investing with the purchase of whole properties.

Going public through a SPAC isn't just for the unsexy startups anymore. Here are the 10 biggest deals in the blank-check craze in the last 5 years. 2020/10/07 15:55:38 Business Insider
Summary List Placement There was a time, not too long ago, when a startup founder would consider selling their business to a special-purpose acquisition company, or SPAC, only as a last resort. Such a sale would signal that the founder couldn't pull off any better move, because the business had failed to attract a quality buyer, or it didn't have the financial discipline to float an initial public offering on the public markets on its own. The unpleasant alternative that remained was an acquisition by a SPAC, or "blank-check company," that has no operations of its own. This type of firm raises funds through an IPO for the sole purpose of buying another business. As the two companies merge, the publicly traded SPAC effectively takes the private business public, without the pomp and cork-popping that usually comes with an IPO — or the dreaded scrutiny and negotiations over price. But the traditional path to the public markets caved this year amid a pandemic and a recession. Many companies delayed their IPO plans until the market swings subsided, and some looked for alternative routes to Wall Street.
Zillow and Yelp Name Top Affordable U.S. Suburbs With a City Feel 2020/10/07 11:00:00 Benzinga
SEATTLE and SAN FRANCISCO , Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- More and more Americans are working remotely and rethinking how and where they want to live. Urban amenities -- like restaurants, nightlife, museums and sports venues -- have long drawn Americans to live in large cities. While demand remains strong there , many buyers are seeking a new balance of indoor and outdoor space and affordability while still maintaining that big-city feel. A new Cityness Index by Zillow® and Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP ) pinpoints the U.S. suburbs that best strike that balance. There is a "Great Reshuffling" on the horizon. Yelp data shows that the number of quotes requested for movers recently increased 34% in San Francisco , 22% in New York and 6% in Los Angeles 1 . This desire to move is also reflected in a recent Zillow poll of people newly working from home because of the pandemic, with two-thirds saying they would consider moving if they had the flexibility to work from home occasionally. "At Yelp, we're seeing consumer interest and requests for quotes in categories like movers, packing services and mortgage lenders increase in major metro areas, compared to the same time period last year," says Tara Lewis , Yelp trend expert. "For city dwellers who don't want to sacrifice great amenities like restaurants, art galleries and nightlife, but are dreaming of a little more space and a more affordable lifestyle, these suburbs offer a similar variety of great local businesses." The Cityness Index combines data from Zillow and Yelp to identify relatively affordable areas near major metros that offer amenities that give the suburbs the feel of big-city living.
