Hey all, my name is Matt. I'm in the process of buying my first home, and in the process I've become extremely interested in investing in real estate. I'm 23 years old and I'm here to learn anything I can. Thanks for having such a wonderful resource available to everyone.
I'm not educated enough to have a full plan yet. But I would say that the bare bones of my long term goals would be to gain equity in my house, and invest in duplexes in the future. Eventually turning my sfh into a rental property.
