all over the place
Question:
I'm looking for your opinion on safe ,long term ,set and forget businesses
that require little to no 'care taking', are 'easy' to setup and preferably have a quick ROI.

Money to spend:
1-3 Million+ USD

what comes into my mind is something like
solar farms (if they would be profitable)
crypto mining farm (if they would be profitable and safe)

anyone can recommend something with
-little to no human interference
-low maintenance

similar to my suggestions?

I suggest you take about $15 of those millions and plop yourself somewhere cozy and read TMFL or Unscripted .

I wouldn't recommend setting and forgetting any investment, regardless of how passive it is.

I think solar farms has a lot to improve on, not solid investments as they stand now imo. There are much better options like stocks/commercial property for wealth preservation.

Read TMF and Unscripted , then read some books on stocks/commercial property and see how you would like to preserve the wealth you've accumulated and also on how you could grow it.

How did one acquire the $1M to $3M?
What are the definitions of 'safe', 'long term', 'set and forget', and 'quick'?

Easy = treasuries? See the money system threads....

Municipal bonds, tax free income for life.
Single-family homes with a great tenant and great property manager. While that might lower your NOI, the point is not to get rich, but to be perfectly passive and free.

Or multi-family units with same great property manager. Similarly, self-service storage facilities. Unfortunately nothing is truly set it and forget it. Either you or someone you trust has to do some sort of management.

My personal goal is to build up a similar amount and become a hard money lender to flippers. Decent short term return on investment and if they default, you hold a lein on the property so you get paid one way or another.

What I recommend:
1) buy Unscripted by MJ Demarco
2) skip to Chapter 47
3) Read rest of the book (if not at least part 4)
4) Get Started in your Money System

You might want to wait a couple years on this. With cap rates in most primary and secondary markets below 6%, and interest rates on the rise, apartment investors who got in between 2016 and now are going to be kicking themselves in a couple years... (in my opinion)

Kicking themselves why?

Given the ridiculously low cap rates we've seen over the past few years, with interest rates increasing and most FNMA commercial loans hitting their 10 year balloon payments, values will almost certainly drop over the next 5 years. Owners won't be able to refinance and still cash flow, so they'll want to sell, and with cap rates almost certainly going up, they will have to sell for a loss (or at least bring cash to the table) to get rid of many of these properties.

Who would want to buy them in that scenario? Seems the new buyer would have the same cash flow issues, no?

Thread #3, same topic, 2 screen names, and no posts outside of your own few threads you started.

WTF.
