I am a finance professional with more than 10 years’ experience in controlling and investments. Started looking for investment options for myself and struggled with it initially. I was fed up of the low interest rates in banks and dint want to invest in stock markets and cryptos due to their risk profile. I just wanted my hard-earned money to be invested in a safe and smart way. I checked shares, bitcoin, gold prices, mutual funds, etc.
Most of the investment options were based on possible future growth and dint make me feel comfortable that my principal investment was safe. I wanted something which was relatively less risky, had more control on it and gives me a regular cashflow.
I dint want to be dependent on a job for ever to live a comfortable life.
I gradually built my portfolio over last few years and now am a full time real estate investor who invests in both rental and transformation projects.
Being risk averse, i make sure every project is analyzed and the different scenarios are looked into before investing. I work with a virtual team of specialist like Brokers (makelaars), financiers, builders, architects who work with me to make every single project a success. We are not builders or brokers ourselves but work with others for those areas.
Financial freedom brings a lot of comfort, confidence and peace of mind. It enables you to focus on things that you want to do. To help others in their real estate journey I have created this platform.
Now 6 years later, I have my own real estate portfolio which generates regular cashflow and have done several renovation projects. Once financially free, I decided to leave my regular job and focus 100% on real estate.
I started SIC to create a safe platform to help others with investment in real estate. A platform which is managed professionally and helps others in the whole journey from sourcing to revenue of real estate. Building credibility and trust with our partners is the most important thing for me. Based on research, I created products which give you the opportunity to learn and manage yourself or be more of a passive investor.
During the last 6 years I have met several startup investors in real estate who start from scratch and make the same mistakes in their journey or invest a lot of time and money re-inventing the wheel. I want SIC to help investors avoid making those mistakes and learn from our experience.
Like all other businesses, team work is key here also. We work with several investors, makelaars, finance companies, builders, architects to help us get the best service and advice. Being part of SIC will enable you to use that network too.
We want to make sure we provide the high-quality service and platform for other investors to make sure their hard-earned money is invested properly.
Our core value is trust. We want to make sure we give our investors a clear view of both opportunity and risks and help them in every step of their real estate journey.
Source properties which generate a lifelong cashflow through rental income while creating equity gains over the years.
Its important for us to provide quality living to everyone in different budgets. Not everyone can afford a luxury house but should have access to clean and sufficient private space.
A portion of our annual earnings is invested to local non-profits to help make a difference in our community.
Using energy efficient solutions and exploring renewable sources of energy usage to make our homes energy neutral.
Our products are based on our customer’s needs. We offer products for both Active and passive investments.
What is the difference between active and passive investment strategy in real estate?
As an Active investor, you want to be involved in the day to day managing of the property. You want to invest your time in finding deals, closing them, arranging any renovations and finding renters. You need to be able to manage your time in a way to be able to handle properties.
As a passive investor, you invest your funds and not time and effort in it. Someone else needs to manage your portfolio for you. This is for people who have a regular job/ other line of business which needs their focus and majority of time.
Note : Irrespective of being an active or passive investor it’s important that you understand the type of investment you are going to invest in.
