Real estate investing was never meant to be easy, but there are a few ways you can get started without putting a ton of your money or time at risk. Most real estate investors go gung-ho from the start, buying as many cheap rental properties as possible, only later to realize their mistake. But here’s the thing; you don’t need to invest in sketchy markets or buy dirt-cheap rentals to make money, you just need a bit of creativity if you want to get ahead.
On this episode of Seeing Greene, we’re taking you through a plethora of investing strategies. We talk about how to invest in real estate when at the tail end of your career, whether to convert your garage into a rental or buy an out-of-state investment, the true cost of holding onto a risky rental property, and why your “cash flow” numbers probably aren’t what they seem. And, if you’re a young investor thinking of skipping college to dive head-first into real estate, you may want to hear David’s advice before you make that move.
