17 Year Old Looking for Advice

1 Reply

Hi, as stated, I am 17 (soon to be 18) years old. For the past few months I have been researching, reaching out to professionals, and attending seminars, gathering as much information as I can. I still have some time before I can jump into anything, but I feel as though I should have as much information as I can. I’m curious...

1. How much money did you have when you started in REI, and what method did you choose (house hacking, wholesaling, etc.)?

2. Learning from mistakes or successes, what would you recommend a beginner start out with?

3. What is the easiest and most efficient way for you to network with people?

Please feel free to add any additional advice as well, thank you!

House Hacking is the way to go. Bought my 1st home at 21 with very little money in my bank account. Can't beat an FHA loan. I later got my real estate sales license and haven't look back since. Have sold over $150M since then and run a $50M+ portfolio today. It all starts with one house and you can build it from there. Plus when you're young living with roommates is no big deal.
