BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY & REAL ESTATE with Michael Flight
Seth Bradley interviews Michael Flight about revolutionizing traditional
real estate investing with blockchain technology.
MAY 26, 2021 | EPISODE 40
Concordia’s Michael Flight gets together with Seth Bradley on the Passive Income Attorney Podcast. In this show, Seth and Michael discuss Liberty’s super stable cash-flowing real estate core plus fund with guaranteed leases for the Single-Tenant Net-Lease property portfolio. Michael explains how Triple Net (NNN) properties are essentially “Mailbox Money” machines where investors don’t have to worry about the tenants, toilets or trash, and receive regular monthly checks with minimal management responsibilities. Liberty has also created geographic, tenant and income diversification through its fund structure with net lease properties throughout the sunbelt states that help to maximize tax efficiency and hedge against inflation.
This show will particularly interest those who are looking to the future of real estate and wealth generation through new forms of technology, such as Security Tokens backed by ultra-secure blockchain technology.
The conversation wraps up with how the tokenization of assets is going to fundamentally change fiscal transactions, eliminating the need for banks and other entities to control how and when you can access your own money.
