Is it a bad Idea to start my own house flipping company at 18?

6 Replies

I've read countless books on real estate, listened to lots of different podcast even talked to different mentors and I've tried birddogging for others. But is it a good idea to start at 18 (currently 17) to make my own start up company based around flipping houses?

Hi @Adonijah Short ,

Not at all! If you have the means to begin flipping, I say go for it. The earlier you get started, the sooner you begin creating your legacy or whatever your end goal may be.

You will definitely need a mentor. Trust me, you want to avoid costly mistakes and bad decisions. Learn from someone who has the experience to help you reach your goals.

That’s the smart way to begin investing in real estate.

That is a great idea.

I started my business when I was 18 years old as well. Now i'm 22 years old and run my business full time and it's a dream come true.

You can certainly do it for yourself. You have the time and the energy and now you just need to get the knowledge and the funds. Knowledge you can get yourself, but you need to find others to bring in the money once you show them you have the knowledge and you'll be set. 

I’m not much older than you. But I wish I would have started at 18! When your around 25(my age) you will be a monster! Reach for the stars! By the time your 30 you will want to flip large apartment units and mansions!
