The BLOG! - MD WV HOMEBUYER
When I started in the wild west of real estate investing I had little information or direction. I read Rich Dad Poor Dad and went out and bought a rental home. I bought it from a local investor who owns many properties. I’m sure he thought fresh meat coming.. here you go, here is one for you. Having No idea of the extra expenses or the management side of the business. The monthly payment / taxes / Insurance minus rent made sense. Not so fast my friend! I’ve learned many valuable lessons from that home but one of the best lessons I learned and am still learning is how and where find property that makes sense to purchase as a buy and hold. After that one I struggled for several years until I took a real estate investing course which did only one thing.. Pushed me to network. Thank god for that! From that point on it has been a different trajectory. Here are a few of the easiest and more basic ways to find “deals” that I have found make sense.
