My husband and I are Real Estate Investors from Williston ND. He works in the Oil Industry and I am a Banker, on the side we own a small Investment Property Company. We started our journey in REI based on knowing the need we would have in the future for passive income. First reason being I plan to leave the workforce in the next couple years to start our family. Second reason is for my husband to leave the Oil Industry so we can move back to Idaho and him work a more medium income job. The income from our REI Company will help offset loss of income when our family makes these financial changes.
Our first investment property we purchased was a 5Bed 3Bath 3,000SF SFR in Branson MO. We rent this home out full time and use a Property Manager to manage the property. We plan to buy again hopefully this year or no later than March of 2019.
I read a lot on Bigger Pockets when we were considering buying an investment property and couldn't have done it without the knowledge and advice produced from this site so thank you!
@Janelle Groenhout Congratulations on your investment and a solid plan. What part of Idaho do you plan to move to? Best of luck!
@Don Spafford Thank you! My husband and I were both born and raised in Sandpoint ID. Our families still reside in the area and we have 6 acres we plan to build on in the future.
Hello @Janelle Groenhout , welcome to BiggerPockets! Definitely start jumping into the community here and feel free to ask any questions related to Real Estate investing!
Not far from Estevan SK where I work! If you ever find yourself lost on this side of the border let me know.
Thanks @Dave Visaya !
Account Closed My husband and I have stayed in Estevan while on a motorcycle trip to Regina, had a great dinner at The Black Grasshopper. Nice little town, plan on stopping there more often when crossing into Canada.
@Janelle Groenhout congrats on the investment! If you ever have any questions in regards to the Branson market, just let me know!
Thanks @Gary Nelson , we have been very pleased with our investment so far and feel like we have a great team set up to manage it. We were blown away with the level of customer service we have received from everyone we have contacted, coming from a boom town where we feel there is no customer service anywhere it was a pleasant surprise. Hoping to make a trip there this year since neither my husband or I have stepped foot in the state of Missouri.
@Janelle Groenhout awesome! Let me know when you come for a visit and I’ll make sure to point you in the right directions. There’s a ton to do in Branson for sure! ;)
Thanks @Gary Nelson !
