Hi @Anthony Rosas welcome to BP! You seem to really have the right attitude and expectations going forward. 5 years is a very reasonable time to achieve the financial freedom you are seeking. Is your wife on board? It sounds like she is. I started with out-of-state rentals as well. If you want to talk further, I'd be happy to. My advice would be to keep going and never give up. Just keep plugging away and you will get there.
Thanks @Dan Barli ! I'm definitely plugging away at all this new information. My wife is on board and will be my partner in all this. How has your journey been?
Hey Tony, welcome! Cool story about you and the wife :) I'm in Venice and also do out-of-state.
@Anthony Rosas that's a huge plus that your wife is on board. My wife has been super supportive from day 1. The journey has been really great. Even surreal at some points. Just keep going and if have any questions, let me know.
Welcome to Bigger Pockets.
Hello! Fellow newbie from SoCal as well. Good luck on your new venture!!
@Anthony Rosas well eventually i'd like some rental properties but I guess I should work my way there and learn more about the single family homes. I'm VERY new to the whole process so i'm soaking up any info I can find so im more confident going into it. So if you know of any events going on locally, please let me know lol.
