Bought my first investment property recently and received the first of many rent checks this month. It’s never felt better to see the reward for putting in all of the hard work associated with my 9-5 job and rolling that into preparing for my future!
What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?
I needed to act and not sit on my hands and do nothing. You sometimes need to jump and grow your wings on the way down. Experience is key when retaining knowledge

Currently being rented by a young professional couple.
Lessons learned? Challenges?
You won’t get anywhere in life if you don’t step. Even if it’s a small step, you’re still moving. Learned a lot of the hidden fees and expenses when purchasing rental properties.
Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?
