Investor in Texas

4 Replies

I am 37 years old and live in Humble, Tx. I have a strong background in aspects related to Real Estate investing and joined to grow in the areas I do not yet understand. I listened to Brandon Turner's book on Income Properties which led me to the forum. I have gone back to the beginning and started catching up on the Podcast which is an excellent source for those who have not gone back to episode one and listened to the relevant episodes from there on. J Scott and Frank Gallinelli's interviews were excellent and if Amazon ever gets their books back in stock I will read them. Fortunately everyone who seems to know what they are talking about recommended reading "E" Myth (Revisited) which I am in the middle of. That book should be sent out by the State immediately upon receiving a new small business application and an exam should be administered before the business is approved. Understanding the various personalities will be invaluable as a foundation. I am working on my Real Estate license to facilitate finding properties. There is a reason everyone recommends this an initial step. I have watched deal after deal blow by while waiting for info from a Realtor. Had I been able to access the property immediately and been able to run comps then submit the offer the same day there was money to be made, and unfortunately it will be someone else for now. I currently work for my parents Manufacturing company as the CFO but given my background I plan on Real Estate Income properties being my path forward. Thanks in advance for any good advice I am sure is coming in the future.

Welcome to the site! The podcasts are worth their weight in gold. You're in a hot market where speed is going to matter. Getting licensed is also just going to give you some credibility as you move forward as well.
