Wealthy investors have a long tradition of putting their money to work in real estate, although
historically it has been in the hard asset itself. Now however, investors are gaining interest in the

investors are seeking to tap into real estate markets.

In the interview we will probe this strategy in detail to identify the risks and see how Arixa mitigates those risks.

A popular video game, “Need for Speed,” features go-fast cars that cost more than the average automobile. Bridge loans for homebuyers are similar in concept. They cost more than traditional financing, but sometimes it’s worth paying a premium for speed.

The best jobs are increasingly located in the largest city centers rather than in the suburbs. Young professionals are increasingly choosing to live in centrally located urban neighborhoods for a number of reasons: improved safety, access to parks and cultural institutions, and decreased reliance on cars and long freeway commutes in favor of public transit and walkability.
The Arixa Capital team participated in a Build Day Program for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles. We spent the day on the construction site working on landscaping, spackling, caulking, and painting. It was hard work and an extremely rewarding opportunity to volunteer and participate in building multi-unit homes for three very deserving families.
Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity has helped low-income families find new hope through affordable housing. Next week, the Arixa Capital team will donate its time and resources to participate in the Build Day Program.

Every month or two a student or recent graduate asks me for advice about how to get a job as a real estate professional.
