Beginning to buy rental property

1 Reply

So I make around 35k a year(not much, almost minimum wage) and I’m looking to buy a property that can grow my income passively. I’ve been building my credit for over a year. I’m 19 now and have 8k in stocks that i can cash out on. What should I do to get that first property? Should I save more then buy in cash? Should I go and talk to my local realtor -and look and somebody available properties in my budget?

@Adam Hollandsworth do you own a home? If not, I would look into house hacking. You can utilize owner occupied financing, and have a tenant help pay your mortgage. Then save more and buy a second. If I could do it all over again, that would be my strategy.
