Starting out

2 Replies

I am looking for some advice on getting started. I currently have a full-time job and I'm working as a real estate agent on the side. My biggest hurdle right now is finding the time to do a flip. I currently have a partner that is willing to put up the money it's just a matter of finding a good property to get started with. Any advice for someone trying to make a flip work while still holding down a full-time job? Any help is appreciated

A friend of mine did several flips while working full time. He also started a real estate group.  It can certainly be done.  Keep reading here and you'll find lots of tips to help you get started.

Glad no one has written anything like "Sleep is overrated". Ha ha.

But really, there is A LOT you can do getting started in this industry with only putting in  a few hours each weekend. Sure you might be started small and building up but that is the best and safest way I think. Took me a while to "quit my day job" but now I can and travel and work from anywhere! (I just might be in Thailand right now...)

Good luck to you!
