Hey @Colton Vermillion ,
I like you saw the way Real Estate investing can make the difference at a young age. One thing that I learned is that you can always learn more and that a good deal is when both sides are happy. I have made offers that Realtors told me was a joke. I've been turned down many times but I can say that this year I have made two "joke offers" that were accepted and the Realtors had to shake their heads. Now maybe they will see my point.
Just have fun and remember that you are doing it for you and not anyone else.
Thanks Jacob, I appreciate that insight! I think that's some very solid advice I'll take with me for my first deal. It's like the old adage "you never know until you try" and I'm gonna try like hell!
@Colton Vermillion I am local to Vancouver, WA and love to mentor and help folks with building passive cash flow via real estate and dividend investing. Our office is downtown Vancouver and if you ever want to swing by and grab a cup of coffee let me know. I have learned the hard way over the years so would love to pass on some knowledge that may be helpful.
Thanks Uwe (I'm sorry I'm not sure how to tag people yet), that's much appreciated I would love to do that! We still have yet to sign our apartment lease and get settled as I'm currently housed in an FS bunkhouse in Parkdale, but as soon as I'm situated I'll let you know, and coffee is on me!
@Colton Vermillion I lived in Portland and Vancouver for a couple years and it’s unfortunate that you live in a primary market where the rent to value ratio does not work. As a high paid professional I would look out of state. Let me know if you need any advice.
@Colton Vermillion Sounds great! Feel free to message me and I can give you my private contact info.
