What does everyone think the best place to start out would be and why? Buy & rent, Fix and Flip, wholesaling, BRRRR, tax liens, or something else? I am in the NJ market.
Short answer is that IT DEPENDS! How much money do you have available to invest? What are your short and long term goals? If you've got money and patience then best long term wealth building strategy is Buy and Hold for cashflow in lower-middle class areas. I suggest finding an agent in your town who specializes in working with investors so that you can get a feel for how much money is needed to invest in your market.
@Chris Laino it really does depend. But, if you are young, and it will be your first property, I personally think a BRRR/House Hack combo can really set folks up in life. While I have done dozens of deals and owned several primary residences before, we just did a BRRRR/Househack combo that came out fantastic - I will be putting it up as a case study next month, you should check it out when it goes up.
Thanks for all the replies. @Andrew Kerr , I've looked into that, do you have any links that were beneficial to you when doing the BRRRR/House Hack?
