Good Debt vs. Bad Debt (& When to Use Both)

Good debt vs. bad debt is a highly-discussed topic throughout the real estate investing and financial independence communities. While some argue that almost all kinds of debt are inherently bad, many people, including our dedicated data and deli sandwich expert, Dave Meyer, argue differently.

Good debt is used to help you grow wealth, while bad debt is used to fund a certain lifestyle. Sometimes these two types of debts can be confused, but the key factor when evaluating debt is to see whether or not it has a significant ROI (return on investment). Dave walks through multiple examples of good and bad debt, showing you the result of long-term debt use.
