A Spotlight about Real Estate
Back then, there were services that allowed an investor to buy a home for 10 per cent down or left in as equity doing a 90 per cent cash out refinancing that gave me back around $40,500.

I started monitoring my net worth that was 100 percent cash, so when measuring my net worth, I had no other sources of investment to look at.
