Hello Everyone,

My interest in real estate is two fold, my retirement is not adequately funded and I want a profession I can do into my eighties. Real estate will give me the most bang for the buck I believe and allow me to retire the way I want to leaveing a legacy to my children and grandchildren.

Welcome to Bigger Pockets. There are some great resources, but nothing beats getting out, meeting people in real time, seeing properties live and in person,etc.

I am curious you mentioned your retirement and into your 80s, may I ask how close you are to that point?
