If you had $200,000 what would you invest it on?

131 replies
Hey guys,

Just wondering what you guys would do if you had this kind of money. Let's say you had $200,000 and you wanted to invest it in something that's going to make a large amount of income over a long period. What would you spend it on? I have a couple of friends who own affiliate networks and have heard some real horror stories my friends and the insane chargebacks lol. Anyways, I would like to hear what you guys think if you had $200k and wanted to spend it on something useful.

    Unless you have 200k to spend, I wouldn't worry about it.

    And if you do, like if I did, I would save $195,000 of it to live on while I figured it out. My theory is that if you can't make a living off of $5000, you probably aren't qualified to try with $200,000.

      I'm impressed the very first reply to this thread is bang on the money! [no pun intended]

      Well done winds and WF

      I'd stay away from advice like property, as that would use up the majority of your 200k which doesn't allow you the opportunity for diversification or experimentation

      I'd personally kick of a few small businesses that cost around the 10k or under mark to get going, then once I've got that right either gradually start up more businesses with the rest of the money or use the money to scale up the existing businesses

    I don't have that kind of free money. But I have just put $15k into professional marketing and a site to replace the current self-built mess. If that brings some reasonable cash flow, I will plow that back into more marketing on- and offline. It's quite possible in a couple of years my company will bring in $100k every month in memberships. If not, it will have been one heck of an experience. So far, it's all been about learning...and learning to hire correctly.

        I think maybe you don't know how low you can
        buy scrap gold... if you know what you're doing
        you can buy pretty much all you want at less than
        half the spot price and, as a bonus, you'll also have
        a bag of various gemstones to boot once you separate
        them out.

        That... and what makes you think gold has peaked?

      HEY Tsnyder!!!

      I was AFRAID to post my answer... UNTIL I saw yours!

      I'd put a bit in gold and silver bullion... the rest in mining stocks. The parity between miners and bullion is almost non-existent, even after bullion has pulled back.

      Don't get me wrong, there's lots of risk - but, at these prices, there's massive leverage.

      We'll see how it all plays out!

      Take care,
      Scott

      According to Prof. Schiller, co-founder of the S&P property index, real estate had zero return for the 100 years to a few years ago. It would probably be negative now. The part that goes up is the land, if it is in demand. Buildings deteriorate with age and decline in value after calculation of inflation.

        With all due respect to the good Professor the ROI in
        real estate isn't found only in the appreciation, but in
        the leverage.

        If I buy a $100,000 property with a $5000 cash down payment
        and turn it for $110,000 my ROI isn't 10%, it's 100%. That's not
        very difficult to accomplish especially with all the bank owned
        and seller financed properties available in today's market.

          Agreed! If you can turn it quickly at 10% more than total cost. My guess is he was talking about residential property, as in your home. That's for security, not profit. Any profit is an illusion.

          Clearly there is another way to turn a profit: rental property. Buy a $100k property with 10% down and let the rents pay mortgage and upkeep.

    Don't buy investment houses as they are expenses. Property development will roll your money over much more. So basically invest.

    Do it in the million plus bracket as there is a lot more profit and easier to sell.

      Interesting.

      I just completed my first big project (duplex) about a half million dollar project in total (probably small fry compared to most developers) and the returns have been great. The market here in Australia at the moment is quite slow.

      Investing in property (especially developments) even though it can be very stressful at times, is a great way to build wealth which you can then reinvest into other areas of interest.

      For me its been IM

      I would add it to my portfolio. As an example: you can get 12% per annum in Mongolia with a 10 year CD backed by their massive copper and tin reserves. So, if they lose your money you own metals shares worth more than what you invested which you can just cash out.

      Or Panama has a really good Teak reforestation program that annualizes out to about 14% per annum. And gets you a Panamainian cititzenship as well.

      Those are just a couple.

    Knowing what I know now, I'd invest the majority of it in large scale media buys to promote various CPA offers. But this is only with my present levels of knowledge and expertise. If I were a complete newbie or just starting out, I'd only reserve $5k - $10k for product development, tools and marketing while I invested the rest ($190k - $195k) in a foreclosure property that was selling for way below market value.

    I'd either flip that property within a few months if I wanted quick cash, or hang on and live in it for several years, because that will allow me to sell and profit from it later and not have to pay capital gains taxes.

    I would invest it in what I know:

    1 - Real Estate

    2 - Websites

    By investing it in something that you are familiar and comfortable with, you will decrease any risk substantially.

    The problem today is that real estate wasn't as it used to be.

    Reason why I don't think it would be wise to put money in it right now.

      That's the thinking of the average man on the street. People with real money (i.e. investors and millionaire entrepreneurs) are snapping up distressed and foreclosure properties (both commercial and residential) by the bucketload. They are not financing these properties, they're picking them up outright for cash because of the amazingly low prices right now (especially if you know how and hire experts to negotiate with the banks on foreclosure properties - there are also great deals to be had on REO properties as well).

        You are correct that buying real estate is tricky right now. However, keep in mind that it is also the best time to buy them. They are dirt cheap, the economy is bad, people are vacating left and right.

        That will change though.

        The economy will rebound, people will have jobs again, people will need a place to live. The bottom line is finding the right places for the right price that you can afford, maintain and pay the taxes on.

        I don't think it;s a bad investment, just a risky one where you need to walk carefully.

          Real estate is definitely not a bad investment right now, my post was in response to the comments of some others who are of the opinion that investing in real estate is not a good idea at the moment. Of course, you'd have to tread carefully, but if you know what you're doing you could make an absolute killing in present market conditions.

    My suggestion would be to to private money notes on real estate. You can get 12% to 14%. Interest only at 12% gets you $2,000 a month. Only loan in first position. Only loan at 50% of appraised value. Get title insurance. Make sure the property can be financed by other means than private money. Inspect the property your self. Do not loan on bare land or construction.

    Although I would keep out 5K to 8K just in case you need to hire an attorney to foreclose.

    This suggestion is not something to take lightly assuming you really have the 200K.

      Not a bad suggestion. I would save a little more than $8k though. Id say about $20-$40 k which is 10%-20% of your $200k egg

    Haha that money is well spent with me!

    Anyway on the serious side, if I had a little extra money I would spend it on advertising mostly, media buys, ppc, PR etcetera. Also I would experiment with SEO and have the money to finally buy a lot of domains and buy some software like SENuke, SEO Elite/Web CEO, Traffic Geyser and the SEM business blueprint. My future plan is to become a SEO/IM consultant for online/offline businesses and create my own IM product and publish my own Amazon bestseller.

    Aside to this I won't stop there... I would start my offline company, as well as a webshop. I really want to have my own clothing and perfume line someday (I already have a catchy brand name). That means I would have to brand myself first otherwise no one will want to buy it. It has to stand out.

    My plan to brand myself is to get into singing (not just for branding but because I really love singing and have been doing it for a few years now) I would spend the money to get my singing career really started. That means money for studio recordings, album creation, photoshoots, PR/promotion etcetera.

    Gosh I think I have to put this plan off for another few years as I obviously can't fund it right now. Anyway after I've have accomplished all of the above I really want to get into real estate as well and that's pretty much it. That's pretty much my billionaire/millionaire blueprint.

    Someone that didn't actually make the money would probably not be able to "invest" the money responsibly.

    I've been at this for a few years so I've built a decent business and a nice war chest. I mostly deal with e-commerce so it's buying/selling products. And my ability to make $100K investments in products came from the knowledge I gained when I was doing $100, $5K, $10K, $25K investments.

    I can't even IMAGINE the mistakes I would've made if I had $200K to play with.

    At the end of one year ... Whoever has the best increase of the original hundred thousand dollars that they received ... will be paid a bonus of $50,000, from the second place person.

    Now you have money, you have incentive.


    I am providing motivation for you to take action ... and am available by PM or e-mail to discuss details.

    Take $5000 buy website that have proven they can make money. Hire a firm to upkeep these websites for a year. Sell off the lowest performing ones biannually and reinvest that money while you keep the ones that are going to pay for themselves the quickest.

    Lather, rinse and repeat until one day you are so rich you make a jacket out of $100 bills and wear nothing but gold shoes. But then stop that because you'd just look ridiculous.

    But as soon as I read about at least 1 forex billionaire ill dive right into studying it further.

    I have been investing in real estate here in Canada. Mostly long term buy and hold, but I did a flip this year too. I only buy if the rent covers all the expenses, including a monthy reserve for repairs and maintenance. I am currently trying to find an apartment building to buy in Edmonton, Alberta as it is a great city to invest in based on several economic factors. I have several money partners to help with the down payment, I take care of the real estate due diligence.
    My goal with IM income is to pay down the mortgages and have a steady stream of monthly income. and that is what I would do with the money -pay down some of the mortgages to increase my cash-flow.

    Bank-owned foreclosures. I still have a reasonable little network of local real estate investors who would be more than happy to take them off my hands at a tidy profit. With $200,000 in cash up front, I could probably leverage that into about $1.5 million within the year.

    It's interesting to see the wide variety of responses to this question. It's important in this case to view the $200k as a tool or resource that can be utilized in multiple ways to ultimately result in a profitable venture.

    Sitting on it is not going to do any good, and depositing it in a regular bank is not going to make sense either with today's insanely low interest rates - you are actually losing money by keeping it in the bank since the present interest rates don't even keep up with inflation!

    The key here is to research one or multiple ways of utilizing that money profitably, and then leverage it for further profits. The key point to remember here is that the majority of this money has to be invested/utilized somewhere, as you'll actually lose money (when you take inflation into account) if you just sit on it or let it generate the paltry interest you get at your local bank.

    I can't believe you guys suggested real estate....real estate is pure speculation in most areas. You guys will have your butts handed to you with some of this advice.

    For every successful investor there are many who filed for bankruptcy. $200,000 won't keep you in the game long term. You'll need bundles of capitol to sustain the hard times (assuming the market recovers)....you have to really pick your spots and buy real estate in areas that are already functioning. If real estate is so profitable then why mess around on the net when you can make millions doing deals allday?

    I'd rather take cyber sorcerer suggestion(the Invest in yourself part). Create a product buy media or some variation of that to market it.

    If I had $200,000 I would invest half of it here adv.justbeenpaid.com/?r=5WIWxPM0ns&p=jsstripler5]JustBeenPaid - "You've Just Been Paid!", and bank the other half. This program pays 2% daily or 60% monthly which will give you $2000 daily or $60,000 monthly.

    As the program matures and I recovered my investment, I would go again.

    No, this is Not my affiliate link and you can start with $10

    Good luck with your program and spend wisely

    I would invest in Entrepreneurs business ideas 'like the dragon's den' I would also pay for myself to go to Uni. I will do both these things anyway but it's smaller steps.

    I'll spend it on adwords, bing, and yahoo. Every single dime, and repeat when I earn from it.

    I'd put half of it down on the silver processing plant in ID. Maybe a few penny stocks in innovative green or mineral exploration companies. Probably a couple mining claims, one gold and one gemstone and probably open them up as fee digs.

    I would travel with $100K and invest the other half on my online business because I know I can make so much more if I had that kind of money to invest but other than that, IM is my passion so it would be fun to have money to spend!!!

      WHY?
      Why revive a 3 year old thread? Are you that desperate for people to click your sig link?

      Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

        Why not?

        If the question is still pertinent - why not seek more current opinions?

        If not and management doesn't want discussion on older topics.. shouldn't they just lock/remove old threads after a long period of inactivity?



        Judging from the frequency with which you chastise others for bumping older threads, you apparently don't understand the true value of a "discussion forum".

        If you are a forum moderator - and your opinion really matters - then you should have the power to actually do something about older threads getting bumped. If not... maybe you should just find something better to do with your time.

        To paraphrase... "Are you that desperate to get your post count up?".

    A professionally designed website, a team of writers, premium SEO service, and buy into all of the top 10 converting network marketing companies.

    Create a funnel and watch my money go to work stopping only to update, tweak and add to/delete from the funnel.

    Anything left over I'd dump into high-end co-ops for quick traction.

    I would invest it into my IM business.

    Not all at once, but I would use it to test traffic sources, etc, so I could create a LARGE, scalable business in a short period of time.

    Then, the money I invested would come back to me many times over and I could then use some of the money for whatever I wanted, and then some of it would go back into advertising to keep everything running smoothly.

    I'd rather turn the 200k into a recurring 200k (monthly) than to waste it all and only be able to use it once

    This question isn't hypothetical to me. Won't disclose exact numbers, but I have an inheritance on the way later this year after probate and asset sales are completed. Currently live in a mortgage free house and have some retirement savings and an operating business generating income.

    Best use of the money in this situation? Top up the tax free retirement account to its limit, and then invest most of the rest in solid dividend paying corporations. The dividend income, done right, will spit off enough cash to maintain lifestyle through retirement without depleting the capital. (The stocks will go up and down, but the dividends keep on paying). I'll buy a new car, but won't squander the money on risky real estate, or burn it with wasteful consumption.
