Over the past 16 days I've shared our journey from our first single family homes, through the gut job renovations, our refinance of the now stabilized units and our first partnership deal.
I have received MANY messages about how to get into real estate yourself. People have the idea that investing is glamorous, but when you go it alone, you go slow and the risk is all on you. Plus look at some of the past pictures of the WORK this takes!
I am going to share my Calendly link below with several days I have set aside time for setting up a free, quick networking call with me to see if investing is something you may be interested in.
By definition an ACTIVE investor is: "fully engaged in the process, either entirely from beginning to end, or heavily in parts of the process (such as acquisition or renovation). The level of commitment that's required by active real estate investors often equates to A FULL-TIME JOB." People tend to want to get into investing to get MORE time in their life, not LESS.
What about getting a return while doing nothing? By definition being a PASSIVE investor is: "a hands-off strategy in which investors are only responsible for providing capital that other professionals manage on their behalf. As a passive investor, you put money into a real estate investment and get returns while the ACTIVE sponsor manages the project for you."
While Michael and I are almost entirely on the active side, we have also invested passively.
Some books for the beginner I recommend are: Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat by David Greene The Hands-Off Investor by Brian Burke
Real Estate Investing is something I am so very passionate about. I think everyone should have the opportunity to learn and grow their wealth for their family. It's one of the biggest keys to success that isn't taught in school.
