Sometimes you just have to seize the moment. Carpe diem — and all that.
Over the last year or so, I’ve been fortunate enough to be presented with some amazing opportunities…
And I’ve seized them.
Because with any investment, the only way to get returns is to act. You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
It’s when to act that’s a harder thing to measure.
Too often, we analyze to the point of paralysis. By the time we go to pull the trigger, we’re too late. Or we simply don’t act at all.
Think about when you bought your home. Maybe it’s gone up in value since then. Especially if you’ve lived in it for 10, 20, 30 or more years. If you bought a property in 2007 or 2008, you might not have seen any increase in value.
Here’s the thing: I am that person. Part of my investment portfolio is a piece of property I bought in 2007 — a reasonable three-bed, 3.5-bathroom townhome that I’ve been renting out.
I bought high, but I’m fortunate that I’ve been able to keep it rented. I’m also lucky I wasn’t forced to sell and take losses. That said, the property value still hasn’t rebounded as well as I would have liked.
Some folks might be scared off and avoid future deals — and potential profits.
But not me. You can’t stay on the sidelines forever. Fortune favors the bold.
In the last year, I’ve traveled the world seizing opportunities and expanding my investing horizon. With my eye on real value, I’ve been to Panama (twice), Mexico (twice) Spain and Portugal…
On each trip, I got to explore some of the real estate opportunities Ronan McMahon shares with readers of Real Estate Trend Alert (RETA). I also joined Ronan and fellow members at The Gathering, an exclusive members-only conference held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
I’ve found an investment strategy that ties together truly amazing travel experiences with the opportunity to make real returns.
And I seized the moment.
In less than a year, I’ll take the keys to my first international investment: an awesome two-bed, two-bath condo in Panama City. The kind of place that someone not too different from me would want to live in — conveniently located, well-appointed and at an affordable price for working professionals.
Last July, I got to put boots on the ground in the very spot where my investment is now well underway.
This is what it looks like today:
Real yields, real cash. Money being deposited into my accounts — and possibly even yours — on a monthly basis.
And these opportunities go on and on…
Fast-forward to last September: I had a chance to do a European tour of some properties. Over the course of a week, I met up with some of Ronan’s contacts and toured a few members-only opportunities.
As a bonus, I took my mother along with me. Like many of you, she is now in retirement, living on a fixed income. But that didn’t stop her from exploring the possibility of owning a home that serves as an investment and a place to vacation — all rolled into one.
We met Geoff, a trusted contact of Ronan’s, in Costa del Sol, the gorgeous, sunbaked hillsides overlooking the Mediterranean, and he showed us some of the offerings we have access to from Ronan.
Take a look at this stunning view from a RETA property overlooking the sea in a small community with its own pool. Each unit offers a stunning view from its own private rooftop space.
I stood on that rooftop and I was sold. Unfortunately, RETA members had already snapped up all of the properties!
But that won’t stop me — likely not my mother and father either. I’m keeping a close eye on what opportunities Ronan digs up in Spain. I want a place in which to invest — and spend time in the future.
Portugal was equally as lovely. Check out the one of the show-stopping beaches…
This is Lagos:
Imagine: You could visit your investment property in Portugal for a beach holiday and pay for the trip out of the rental income the property generates the rest of the year.
Speaking of rental returns… let’s talk Mexico.
I’ve invested in both Cabo and Tulum. Both places have outstanding rental income potential.
In total, the three properties I’ve bought into in Mexico are likely to generate more than $100,000 per year in gross rent combined.
Imagine earning $100,000 extra income in a single year — and getting to take in views like this…
Lounge on the beach and make some money…
Now that’s a moment to seize.

P.S. I’m not a salesperson. I’m a financially minded individual who doesn’t want to see people miss out on a great opportunity. Do yourself a favor and check out this outstanding report on the opportunity in Tulum.
I wouldn’t be so adamant that this is an opportunity you can’t afford to miss if I weren’t so sure myself. Which is why I’ve invested in two different properties in Tulum. Don’t miss this opportunity to make some serious gains and reap the rewards of high rental yields.
