Actor Channing Tatum and actress Jenna Dewan took a $75,000 hit on their $6 million Beverly Hills home last month, accepting a $5.925 million offer on July 7.
The newly divorced couple have been trending as of late for taking a $75k loss for selling their plush home. The home was formerly owned by Carrie Fisher. Tatum 41 and Dewan 40, ended up paying $6M back in 2015 and currently have sold the California property according to New York Post.
Although the low sales figure will hardly cause a dent in the ex-couples bank account, it is hard to say that anyone wants to take a loss on selling a home.

Learn How to Make $500 in Passive Income Per Month
When it comes to finance, I started off my career investing in stocks, following the portfolios of some of the best stock investors of all time. Investors such as Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger, and Peter Lynch. I put everything i had in my savings into stocks. Every check I made, I put 50%- 75% of that into my investment account. After a year of buying tech stocks, retail stocks, and bank stocks, my portfolio grew about 12%. In total, I was able to save about $10k… The big idea was, if I save about $50k into one or a couple different stocks, I could potentially make $500 a month off of dividend income. But here’s some of pros and cons of making that decision.
Pros and Cons of Investing $50k in Real Estate for Dividend Income
1. Stocks are Extremely Liquid. Meaning you are able to sell you stocks immediately if you were in a sticky situation. However, in my opinion the best investor is a buy and hold investor.
1. Most dividends do not come monthly, them come quarterly. Which means every 4 months you’ll get to your dividend payout.
2. If the price of your stock goes up you earn money. So if you invested $50K and the stock price goes up 6% than you make $3k totaling $53K. However, if it goes down you lose 6% or more.
2. To save up $50k, think about how much time that would take. A couple of years, realistically speaking. By that time you could’ve made a number of different investment.
3. You can reinvest your dividends to earn you more money. This method is called compounding, where you’re money is doubling over the years.
3. You may lose money big time, if the stock market goes down. Look back at the 2008 crash, everyone lost money, houses, and jobs.
Referring back to this chart, there are companies that will continue to appreciate in price. But what will go up, may go down (click the link for examples). There are also companies that do pay monthly dividends. But if you were put $50k into one or two different stocks, how do we know how stable that stock is? Do you want to put your money at risk? If you’re a low risk investor, that would be the smartest decision. So I thought to myself what if I bought a condominium, and rented it out after a year of living in it? How much would I have to spend out of pocket to buy it?
To answer that question. Using the purchase price of $100k, the down payment and closing costs would come out to $9k. Let’s fast forward a year from after i bought my property.. The time has come for me to move on, and now i want to rent my unit out. I could potentially make $500 monthly, i would just have to rent out the unit for 30%-50% more than the actual cost of my mortgage payments but that is doable if you bought the property at a good price. On top of the monthly cash flow, you can ask for first months rent or last months rent. During the 2008 recession, one of the most stable investments were rental properties. The best part about real estate is that its in constant demand. Somebody’s always looking for a place to rent, just do your due diligence when you do choose your tenant. The most important part about investment properties is the guaranteed monthly rent check. While other investments such as commercial properties during a recession might be a lot more risky, a rental property still brings in a steady flow of passive income.
Implications like these tell us that a Buyer’s markets, within the next couple of months, could possibly be coming. Inventory may come on the market at much more accurate prices. The people who will benefit from this, will be essential workers, who have strong cash reserves on hand
De-listings are up way over 100 Percent this quarter, that is the highest it has been in history today so what does this mean to us Real Estate Investors and Home Buyers. The corona-virus has put a wrench in this years real estate market —but don’t expect buyers to lower their prices. Today’s Sellers are simply not giving in to the temptation to lowers prices accordingly. Along with the Sellers making it hard for buyers, Lenders are also making it harder to close new loans even though rates are low, staff are laid off or working from home, and the Covid-19 environment makes things like getting inspections and appraisals much more difficult.
But in a post coronavirus world where dense city areas are tightly-packed New York has been the epicenter, more and more may favor the suburbs instead.
Scared of the risks they’re taking by living in a city that has been called the epicenter of the covid-19 epidemic. “Why New York? Why are we seeing this level of infection? Well, why cities across the country?” Cuomo stated in a briefing last month.
“It’s very simple,” the governor said. “It’s about density.”
Density is what’s making people flock to the suburbs. People are willing to just pack up and leave, but can you blame them. Cost wise it makes sense, moving just 20 miles away from the city could save you hundreds of thousands of dollars. Being that you were willing to purchase, we’re talking cheaper property taxes, lower costs of goods, and most of all you’ll definitely save on gas.
In my opinion, i do not see a change in population statistics within inner cities. If you take the attacks of Sept. 11th and the 1918 flu pandemic, the city has rebounded time and time again. Will there be more demand in suburban areas? Possibly, but don’t count New York City out just yet.
“New York loves all of you. Black and white and brown and Asian and short and tall and gay and straight. New York loves everyone. That’s why I love New York. It always has, it always will. And at the end of the day, my friends, even if it is a long day, and this is a long day, love wins. Always. And it will win again through this virus. Thank you.”
When I was a kid, my mom used to tell me that if I didn’t do my chores and get my homework done by a certain time, she would have to send me to bed without dinner. She wasn’t kidding; when I missed the deadline (which was often), she’d send me upstairs with no food … Continue reading “Work Smarter instead of Working Harder”

New Stimulus Bill Proposed To Cancel Rent And Mortgage Payments Plus A Check For $2000 A Month To Help The People.
Congress has stated that they have made two separate proposals for Americans who have been affected by the Coronavirus Epidemic. Fed discloses that they’re may be a 2nd stimulus bill that will give you $2000 a month, plus mortgage and rent will be canceled for up to one year. Introduced by representative Ilhan Omar Minnesota Democrat, under the Rent and Mortgage Cancellation Act.
Today we’re getting into the 2nd proposal which would call for mortgage payments to be omitted during the covid-19 epidemic. It would focus on the following:
-Rent forgiveness in its entirety for one year.
-Mortgage payment forgiveness on your primary residence.
-There will be no accumulation of debt for renters or homeowners and no negative impact on their credit reports.
If you have already made mortgage payments due for April 1st, you will be back paid or reimbursed, as the bill will be retroactive to March 13 2020 so you will get that month’s rent/mortgage back if this bill is passed. You will not, however, be able to use this income for more than one property. You will have to include the primary residence that you live in to receive the mortgage forgiveness.
