JC 056: Investing Outside of your Backyard with Nir Babajani

December 5th, 2018 | no comments

Real estate is not passive investing

Nir Babajani is the Founder of Nadlanir, an Israel-based investment company whose primary clients are Israelis who are investing in the US property market. Nir started in 2012, when he first took the risk of investing outside of his country. Nir’s passion to begin his company was driven by the frustrations at US properties being offered for sale at outrageously high prices in his country. He turned that frustration into motivation and that led him to creating a service to enable Israelis to confidently purchase US investment properties.

Nir joins John Carney in The Real Estate Locker Room to chat about the pros of investing outside of your country. He shares the challenges that new investors will face in foreign countries, the clients that he serves and the types properties that his business focuses on. Nir tells the story of how he became involved in US real estate and how he utilized his experience as a project and risk manager to succeed in this industry.

Five Key Points:

  1. Many investors have the money, but they don’t have the time.

  3. Understanding real estate is about understanding what you know, your resources, and your goals.
