I've decided to try this real estate adventure out. My goal is acquire rental income to replace my own income eventually. My hands are cursed with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. I can no longer do labor, I'm afraid what they'll be like in 20 years.
I'm fortunate to have good employment and a decent VA Disability check in the meantime. I am currently working on my first deal. I can defend the numbers of it, the deal is beyond good numbers wide, but I can't get my wife on board. How have y'all got a tentative spouse on board?
Try to paint the picture of you sitting on a beach checking your bank account to make sure the rent checks all came in. Sounds better than working until 70.
Hey @Curtis Shotliff ,
My spouse got on board after we found a duplex in an A+ neighborhood. She was sold on living in a great area and was fine 'sharing' the backyard (though we seldom bumped into tenants) We house hacked the first one.
