Hello! My name is Sean Lauber and my wife (Alice) and I are interested in using real estate as a means for investing our money. We've recently settled down in the Albany, NY area (originally from Montreal - then Toronto - then Vancouver - then Boston - and now here!) and we're working steady jobs now and getting a steady stream of income. I work in the biological sciences and my wife is in retail and with some excess money we're interested in buy and hold. We're thinking of a small multi-family to start out (using an FHA loan) and renting the other units. Ultimately we seek financial freedom so I can spend more time on my hobbies (homebrewing, guitar, farming) and taking it easy! Stress is the enemy and working 9-5 for 70% of the week (ie 70% of life) is unacceptable! I'm quite new at this so I have lots to learn, but with a committed (daily) routine I'm hoping to sink my teeth into something before the year is up.
