In this episode, I want to address an email I received a couple of weeks ago, answering the question, “When should I sell my investment property?”

The answer provided by this wealth expert was unhelpful and a little bit superficial, so I want to unpack today what he said and why I disagree.

For this exercise, I’m going to assume that if you sell a piece of real estate, you want to take the working capital out of one asset and put it into another investment.

By doing it, you’re prepared to let go of potential future profits on the asset that you already have and move it to another deal where you could potentially get better opportunities.

If you’re an investor and you’ve earmarked capital for investing, I’m also going to assume that you’re not selling an investment property because you want to buy a boat or a bigger house.

Another thing I want to mention is that in my 20-plus years of investing, one of the pieces of advice I repeatedly heard was that you should buy investment properties and never sell them.

The reason was that you could capture as much growth as possible for future passive income and wouldn’t incur taxes.
