I became interested in investing in real estate is fascination from touring properties and imagining how to transform spaces, and build lives within them, how to increase property values through a few well chosen upgrades, tapping into the dream of having to earn a living doing what I naturally love to help others make smart real estate decisions. The more experience I can get under my belt, the more I'm likely to earn as a contractor/real estate agent, the ability to parlay my experiences.
