HELLO!!! Names Nate from Kentucky. I am 21 years old and am looking to further my education in REI. I've been lurking around the site for a few days now and MAN!!! there's a lot to learn. My future goal (short/long term) is to become a full-time real estate investor. As far as strategies, I have taken an interest in rehabbing properties and also buying and holding. I am very eager/nervous/ a little overwhelmed but I embrace the challenge. I'm sure I will be asking tons of questions going forward so thanks in advance.
@Nate Lewis Welcome to BP! You are the right place to begin your education. Don't be afraid to jump in and ask questions.
Good luck and welcome!
Welcome to BP @Nate Lewis Don't be too excited about doing real estate full time. Sometimes having a job with w-2 income can help you get financing. Full time real estate is great if you can do it, but it is hard work. You are young. I wish I started at your age.
If you just add a rental or two every year, you will be amazed at haw far you have come when you look back in a few years.
