Meet Real Estate Investor Will Barnard
How long have you been investing in real estate full time?
I started investing in 2004 and went “full time” in 2006.
What attracted you to becoming a real estate investor?
I have almost always been self-employed and I am a true entrepreneur at heart. I have always been interested in real estate investing; in fact, I was out looking at homes to buy, rehab and flip back in 2000, but never pulled the trigger because I felt I did not have the financial capabilities to do so — how little did I know! The fact is, I could have, had I had the right education! Real estate investing offers me the freedom to work when I want (which is actually all the time, but I love it!), make as much money as I want, as there are no limits as in a regular job, and most importantly, I love what I do.
