My name is Tyesen I'm 22 years old, married and in the military. Currently I have no experience in real estate but have heard many great things about the real estate world. I've read a little information so far on this website about all the different avenues that can be taken and I think I'm most interested in buying and renting either land, single family homes, or duplexes. Due to my career and finanicial situation I thought it would be most productive to kind of create a knowledge base while saving my money and then hopefully in a year or two begin the process of buying property. I'm trying to find all the best resources for my goals and hopefully connect with people that are willing to point me in the right direction. Any help that anyone would be willing to give would be much appreciated.
