A graduate from Robert Morris University with degrees in Actuarial Science and Financial Mathematics (along with a corporate background as a Financial Analyst), Jeremy Taggart is a huge asset to the DHRE team. If you are a long term buy and hold investor, or are looking for quicker money by flipping, Jeremy will guide you using the same analytic approach he uses for his own investment properties to ensure you’re in the best position to profit from your purchases. Jeremy has lived in Beaver, Allegheny, and Butler counties, giving him a wealth of knowledge throughout the area.
But that’s not why we’re here today. We’re not here to talk about the Elite level this Young Buck performs at…mainly because he’s here to talk about the elite level he performs at. So without further ado, let’s put Jeremy Taggart in DHRE’s hot seat as this week’s featured advisor!
DHRE: Let’s start with the basics. Why Real Estate?
JT: Multiple wealth generators possible, specifically with rental properties. Cash flow, appreciation, tax benefits, loan paydown, etc. The fact that you can have tenants essentially pay for a property for you, while still putting money in your pocket every month, separates real estate from any other asset class in my opinion.
DHRE: What would you say is the most rewarding aspect of real estate?
JT: The passive income it brings while knowing that you are providing a nice place for people to live. Also the fact that you can turn a run down property into something people love.
DHRE: Speaking of something people love, what is the most rewarding aspect of having the same initials as Justin Timberlake?
JT: Ummm…I’m not sure there is one.
DHRE: I’d say that answer checks out. Now, fill in the blank. If I didn’t go into real estate investing, I would probably be __________.
JT: Attempting to beat the stock market. Probably to no avail.
DHRE: Hopefully working at Pierce & Pierce, am I right? Now, why is Pittsburgh the greatest place in the universe to live and invest in?
JT: One of the best cash flow markets in the country and holds steady during market downturns. Has shown some pretty significant appreciation as well in recent years.
DHRE: Would you call The Steel City PGH or PIT?
JT: PGH…Yinzer for life!
DHRE: You look like a guy who loves quotes. Tell us your favorite.
JT: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch
DHRE: I prefer the Danger Zone, Iceman.
JT: Who or what is an Iceman?
DHRE: A reference before your time, good sir. Since I’m starting to show my age, I think it’s time you ask yourself a question. Like the Iceman up there.
JT: What are your favorite or most recommended books?
DHRE: You know, one thing I really wanted to ask was if you had any favorite books or recommended literature? You seem well-versed in that thing called, “reading”.
JT: The Compound Effect, The Richest Man in Babylon, The One Thing, The Wisdom of Andrew Carnegie as Told to Napolean Hill, and all of Brandon Turner’s books on real estate investing.
