Invest in real estate

Investing in real estate is an inflation-resistant pathway to growing your wealth, but it often involves the hurdle of purchasing physical properties and the risks and responsibilities that come with being a landlord. But there are ways to invest without all those hassles and you don’t need to have millions already in the bank to do it.

For instance, Arrived is an online platform, backed by world-class investors including Jeff Bezos himself, where everyday investors can invest in shares of rental homes and vacation properties allowing you to get your foot into the real estate market, without taking on the responsibilities of a landlord.

Arrived allows you to browse through their curated selection of homes, each vetted for their appreciation and income potential. Once you find a property you like, you can choose the number of shares you want to buy and start investing with as little as $100.

Invest today for the future you want

Amazon continues to thrive in today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, owing much to Bezos’ entrepreneurial spirit and his smart financial decision-making skills that set him up for long-term success.

Bezos retired as Amazon's CEO in 2021 at age 57 with a net worth of roughly $199 billion, according to Business Insider. His fortune, at that time, was 739,489 times the median net worth of an American at the age of 65.

While most of us will never have a nest egg of that magnitude, it is worth asking yourself: What does long-term financial success look like for you? For many, that means investing in a way that sets you up for your dream retirement, one where you don't have to worry about your income once you've stopped earning a salary. And that all depends on the investing choices you make today.

If you want to avoid the ups and downs of the stock market, one option that is opening a Gold IRA with American Hartford Gold, which allows you to invest directly in physical precious metals rather than stocks and bonds.

Investing in precious metals, within an IRA, also means you can take advantage of the tax benefits of this retirement account. When you join American Hartford Gold, you’re eligible to get up to $10,000 in complimentary silver and a free investor guide that can help in both the protection and growth of your wealth.
