My first investment property! A 4 BR, single family home.

What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?

Looking to build income/wealth and knew I needed to start somewhere. Invested with two partners and we are always searching for more. The property was turnkey and in our price range, which made it a perfect opportunity for the three of us.

How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?

This property was found by one of my partners, we negotiated that the seller cover all closing costs.

How did you finance this deal?

Standard 30 Year Mortgage.

@Matthew Teitsma -  Hi Matt, congratulations. Are you using a property management company for your rental? I am looking for a property management co in Kalamazoo and I would appreciate any suggestions. I don't know much about Kalamazoo but I am interested in investing there. If you have a real estate agent to suggest, it will also be appreciated :)
