“Landlords grow rich in their sleep.” — John Stuart Mill
The English philosopher and political economist John Stuart Mill is one of the most influential figures in intellectual history and the classical liberalism movement. Mill is best known for his theory of “Utilitarianism,” which in essence states that an action or type of action is right if it tends to promote happiness or pleasure and wrong if it tends to produce unhappiness or pain.
Now, the details of Utilitarianism are interesting to debate, especially for someone like me who spent his undergraduate years majoring in Philosophy at UCLA. Yet what might be an even more interesting concept is Mill’s pithy statement here, that “Landlords grow rich in their sleep.”
Indeed, if you’ve ever owned residential and/or commercial investment property you know that it can be a lucrative endeavor — if you get the variables right. Yet you also likely know that there are a lot of variables you must get right to be successful. Get a few things wrong in the process, and rather than growing rich in your sleep, you might just wake up in a cold, nightmare-induced sweat.
So, how do you get the variables right in real estate?
One great way to do that is to align yourself with a team of experts, and doing that right now is as simple as reading my new, free special report, aptly titled, “The Ultimate ‘Fixer Upper’ for Your Portfolio.”
In this report, I tell you all about a company whose mission, business model, structure (a Real Estate Investment Trust, or REIT), expert management and track record of success represent a way for investors to participate and potentially profit mightily from a specialized segment of the real estate market that involves buying distressed assets, fixing them up and then renting the properties out to credit-worthy tenants.
That’s why I call this the ultimate “fixer upper” for your portfolio, because an investment in this non-public REIT is like having a team of real estate experts doing all of the hard work for you. All you must do is put some money to work in this pre-IPO deal — and start watching your returns accumulate.
The name of the company is RAD Diversified REIT, and it is a Regulation A+ offering.
What that means is that you can invest directly in the shares of the company without even a brokerage account. Moreover, you don’t have to be a “qualified investor” to do so, the way you have to for traditional Initial Public Offerings (IPOs).
Of course, if you are reading this, you likely have a long history of putting money to work in the public markets via a brokerage account, and if you’ve been following the recommendations in my newsletter advisory services, then you have likely done extremely well.
Yet what you might not have had access to before are these pre-IPO, Regulation A+ private offerings that allow you to buy shares of the company with as little as $1,000.
Well, RAD Diversified REIT is one such company, and I think it represents an outstanding opportunity for investors looking to supercharge returns in the real estate market without ever swinging a hammer, taking on a commercial or residential mortgage, or having to maintain a physical asset.
So, what, exactly is RAD Diversified REIT?
In essence, the real estate experts at RAD “turn ugly into pretty.”
What that means is that they look for residential and multi-family properties in key real estate markets across the United States that they can buy at a discount. Often, these purchases are made in properties with tax liens, tax deeds and foreclosures.
Indeed, it is the company’s ability to use multiple channels to purchase properties well below market value and leverage the knowledge and experience of its management team to maximize returns for its investors.
So, think of it as a twist on the old Wall Street maxim, “Buy low, sell high.”
With RAD, it’s “buy low, rent high, collect the rents, pay a distribution, increase the share price for investors.”
Here’s the basic strategy RAD employs to get this job done, using a strategy that they call “The Compound Acceleration.”
According to RAD’s official language: “We rehab, we rent, we leverage, we repeat. We will spend more money to find good deals than anyone else, obtaining more properties than anyone else. We buy something to make it better and we spend more money to make our properties more valuable.”
That’s why I call this company the ultimate fixer-upper for your portfolio. The experts at RAD know how to find the properties, how to “fix them up” to increase their value and how to translate value into the share price of their REIT.
But how well has this strategy worked?
I mean, as a reader of mine you know I am all about the earnings prowess of companies and the returns they offer. So, how about the following audited results:
RAD Diversified REIT made a 36.7% annualized return in 2020, including unrealized gains (based on net asset value (NAV) per share on January 1, 2020, compared to NAV per share on January 1, 2021). As you likely know, that is a major league high performance, and it’s the kind of performance that you want when considering putting your money to work.

This report is absolutely free, and you don’t even need to provide your email to access it. All you must do is read it, click a few links and you’ll be ready to conquer the real estate market!

The Bard on Real Estate
“I would give a thousand furlongs of sea for an acre of barren ground.”
— Shakespeare, “The Tempest”
Even The Bard of Avon knew about the importance of real estate in human life. Indeed, owning physical real estate and/or owning it through investments such as homebuilder stocks, lumber stocks, building supply companies and especially REITs plays an important role in your overall investment picture. If you are light on real estate, think about ways you can right that ship and sail it from open sea to “an acre of barren ground.”
