8 Proven Ways to Make Money in Real Estate


14 min read

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


This article was originally published on October 13, 2017.

Real estate may have produced more wealth than any other industry, but people still remain skeptical about entering into the fray. Most think that they need to start with some sort of capital, but that’s not always the case. The one magic power you do need is to be able to find the money, and we’re often not talking much to open up escrow. If you know what you’re doing, you can make money in real estate even if you’re just starting out.

Don’t think so? Take the story of Kent Clothier, for example. Clothier opened his first escrow for $500. All he did was find a distressed home and a motivated buyer and brought them together. Today, he flips over 1,000 properties and manages 5,000 through

Microsoft Money – Wikipedia

Microsoft Money is a personal finance management software program by Microsoft. It has capabilities for viewing bank account balances, creating budgets, and tracking expenses, among other features.[1] It was designed for computers using the Microsoft Windows operating system, and versions for Windows Mobile were also available (available for Money 2000-2006 on select versions of Windows Mobile, up to, but not including, Windows Mobile 5.0).

Money is no longer being actively developed as a retail program. From its inception in 1991 until its discontinuation in 2009, Microsoft Money was commercial software. Microsoft discontinued sales of the software on June 30, 2009 and removed access to online services for existing Money installations in January 2011.[2] In 2010, Microsoft released a replacement version, called Microsoft Money Plus Sunset, which allows users to open and edit Money data files, but lacks any online features or support.[3] It is available in two

Uganda warns of increase in mobile money fraud

The Uganda Communication Commission urged consumers to be wary of criminals attempting to scam people out of funds using mobile money platforms, having recorded an increase in cases during the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

In a blog the regulator outlined security advice for subscribers after noting there were a number of fake promotions being circulated, alongside cases of fraudsters masquerading as operator employees to gain access to account details.

Among the rackets in circulation are attempts to persuade users to handover or enter PIN numbers, which are then used to enable fraudulent transactions.

“Such scams have resulted in a loss of considerable sums of money by unsuspecting subscribers, and more so during this COVID-19 lockdown, with subscribers increasingly using digital financial platforms due to limited mobility, and therefore desperate not to lose connectivity,” it added.

The regulator noted it was collaborating with mobile operators and anti-fraud companies in an attempt to

ZURICH, April 17 ― Facebook’s planned cryptocurrency Libra will be linked to individual national currencies and overseen by global watchdogs in a scaled-back revamp it hopes will win regulatory approval.

The prospect of Facebook’s 2.5 billion users adopting Libra has led to intense scrutiny from global regulators, with many worried its launch could erode national control over money.

Libra’s governing body, which is seeking the go-ahead from Switzerland’s markets watchdog, said on Thursday that it will now offer “stablecoins” backed by single currencies, as well as a redesigned token based on these currency-pegged coins.

The original plan was for Libra, which was unveiled last June, to be backed by a wide mixture of currencies and government debt. But central

Todd Gurley’s message to Rams: ‘Send me money ASAP’

It was a surprise when the Los Angeles Rams released All-Pro running back Todd Gurley, but not just because he’s a great player.

Gurley received a monster contract two years ago, and his cap hit with the Rams is still over $20 million after his release. Plus, the 25-year-old running back was cut a day before he was set to earn a $10.5 million bonus.

With so many Americans dealing with layoffs amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Gurley too is having trouble getting his former employer to pay what is still owed to him.

He took to Twitter to call out the Rams, saying they are “past due” on his payment:

If Gurley’s claims are accurate, he has a legitimate gripe with L.A., considering he handled his release with class.

The Rams cut him to save $10.5 million, and to not give Gurley the money he is still owed is not

Fidelity shuts three money market funds to most new investors

By Herbert Lash

NEW YORK, March 31 (Reuters) – Fidelity Investments, one of the world’s largest asset managers, on Tuesday closed three money market funds to new investors to protect the return of existing shareholders after the Federal Reserve this month cut short-term interest rates to near zero.

Restricting the money flow into the three funds will help reduce the number of new Treasury securities paying lower yields that Fidelity will need to purchase and thereby halt the dilution of existing shareholder returns.

“Newer issues generally have lower yields than the funds’ current holdings, and as such they would affect the funds’ ability to continue to deliver positive net yields to shareholders,” Boston-based Fidelity said in a statement.

Fidelity Treasury Only Money Market Fund, FIMM Treasury Only Portfolio and FIMM Treasury Portfolio had a cumulative $85.5 billion as of Monday, said the closely-held asset manager best known for actively managed
