-Question from a listener:Does Andy have any suggestions as how to arrange a deal with a sibling as a co-signer on a mortgage?Our income is increasing but we don’t have enough to qualify. The banks want two years of income. I am trying to come up with a plan, a business agreement, to present to one of my siblings who would qualify easily to do this with us.We will easily make the payments and we have some assets as collateral.What are some ways to arrange this? Pay them a monthly income? Share in any capital appreciation? Could the mortgage eventually be transferred to us completely?What are the downside risks?Andrew suggests a shared equity deal and explains what it entails
-Question from a listener:Some time ago Andy spoke about how the Chinese are buying land in and around NYC.I think I heard Andy say that there are contacts (websites, etc.) that can be reached out to if you have something the Chinese may want.I have 10 acres on the north shore of long island that being subdivided into 20 lots.Does Andy still have that information?
-Question from a listener:I work for the second largest food service distributor in the U.S. There have been rumors for several years that the company’s finances are not very good. Food service distribution is a very low profit margin business so this is quite possible. Last year the merger of our company with the largest food service distributor was blocked by the FTC leaving my company an independent entity. Shortly after the merger was blocked my company sent its employees a letter saying the company was going to offer stock– and that the employees would be gifted 10 shares. I am expecting an IPO shortly. Does this sound reasonable or is it possible the upper management is up to some shenanigans? With all we learned about finances from you I start getting suspicious when Wall St. gets involved. Any thoughts?
-Andrew talks about a business he has putting local farms and local restaurants together
-If the US were to raise tariffs, wouldn’t that decrease the trade deficit, and so keep more dollars within the county? My understanding is that the US government is able to fund its activities by exporting those dollars to the rest of the world. Bringing all the corporate profits home would surely have the same effect. Wouldn’t both cases lead to massive inflation of the dollar, even risking hyper-inflation? Andrew responds
-Why invest in numismatics? Isn’t that just speculation that Andrew always warns about?
and so much more!!
