Start by sitting your family down and making a plan. What do you want to get out of real estate? Do you want to retire in 6 months and make real estate your full time gig? Keep your job and accumulate a few rentals? Get clear with goals and the strategy will follow

Thank you very much, Alli and Juilo for welcoming me into this great community! So far, just reading through the forums, I have gained a lot of understanding of a few of the strategies that I am interested in, such as wholesaling and BRRRR-ing. Subject-to investing also peaks curiosity. However, I do have many years under my belt in sales management and I am fortunate enough to have some construction experience, so I believe the two strategies I have chosen may be my best starting point.

There are a few properties that I have in mind, one being a large multifamily unit that would have to undergo a major renovation process not to mention a major funding, and a few single family homes and need some TLC. I am looking to meet a few realtor to help me access the MLS site to help initiate some conversations with the owners. If I am missing anything (which I know I can always use more knowledge and backup) I look forward to all insights, criticism, and tips/tricks! Thank you again!

Hello Eliott! 

I want to push myself to make real estate a full time career and a family business! This has been an ongoing conversation and the goals set are to just start reaching out and connecting with everyone I can including potential renters. Within the end of next year, I am working to eventually create at least two cash flowing rentals, whether they are single family homes or multifamily units (preferably multifamily) and to try to wholesale a property. I believe I have broken the goals down into obtainable steps. I have already been reaching out to a few realtors in my area, some of my previous landlords to hear their experience and what steps they took to get into owning multiple rentals, and trying to discuss a way that could potentially invest into me. I understand I have a long way to go, and a lot to learn. Do you have recommendations or tips about goal setting in this industry? If so, I would love to hear them! Thank you, Eliott!

My man! Glad to hear you are pursuing those goals. I work for the leading investment brokerage out here in CO. We see a ton of great plays for investors especially down in the Springs/Pueblo. How are things going ?
