My journey into real estate investing began after working in Corporate America for the better part of eight years.
I actively invested in my 401K, saved regularly and lived well below my means, but other than that – I HAD NO STRATEGY!!
It was shortly thereafter that I decided to learn about personal finance and after a few months of studying, I realized that the majority of people who acquire REAL wealth do so by either starting a business or investing in real estate.
To make a long story short, I chose the simpler path of the two – buying rental property.
After a few headaches and some expensive “life lessons” the cash-flow started to add up. It wasn’t long before it started to take on an income of it’s own. I realized that if I would have learned some of these lessons from the start – I could have saved a lot of time and headaches! I hope that through sharing my real-life experience I’ll be able to help others in developing an additional monthly revenue streams and take the mystery out of rental property investing.
I share my experiences and thoughts on real estate here on the BP blog.
