@Bob Romano is your commercial property standalone or part of a multiplex? Because right now I’m looking into my first property and I’m really interested in the multiplex just working on running accurate numbers and getting as much data as I possibly can. 

@Ryan Hazelwood

The rental came 5 months after we sold the house-hack and purchased our actual home.

We bought our current house December 2018, sold the house-hack March 2019, bought our first rental August 2019.

Currently looking for SFM and MFH in Cincinnati market to expand portfolio.

I started my journey at 23 and house hacked my first two properties via FHA 3% down and VA 0% down. My third property i put 20% down (yuck) should have found creative financing.

Hello Ryan,

I'm 25. Own 2 SFHs. Living in one and doing a house hack and I'm renting out the other. I got my start at 23 by using the VA loan and house hacking the first property, then getting another and house hacking this newest one. I'm trying to accumulate enough properties to have 3.5k in cash flow every month before I'm 30.

@Jake King Roberts I have all mine financed through local banks that I have connections with. I work as a lender for a local bank as well and I have had the bank I work for finance them as well. Local banks are the best, I am biased of course. Low down payments.

I am 27 i currently own 17 units, 15 are a mobile home park and 2 are a duplex.

Started out by saving up and buying 1 then just kept waiting for deals and remodeling each one, then either selling to reinvest or letting them pay for themselves.
