In today’s episode, Paul Moore shares his extensive knowledge of Delaware Statutory Trusts (DSTs) and the many reasons why he believes they are beneficial to people who wish to be passive investors. Although, it is common knowledge that DSTs aren’t for everyone, so as part of the discussion today, Paul openly talks about the downsides associated with them. However, negatives aside, if you are interested in earning money without the hassle of managing the properties yourself, this episode will be a great and insightful starting point. Paul offers tips on the ways to find DSTs, the assets that are best suited to DSTs, and how to avoid going through a broker to get them. Paul is not only interested in real estate investing but also has a deep desire to alleviate suffering in the world, in particular, human trafficking. You will hear more about how he has made it his mission to create awareness around this global tragedy and how he goes about raising funds to help fight against it. This is Paul’s second time on the show and his insights are always extremely valuable and hopefully, it will not be his last!
