Is Real Estate Investing for You?


Cory and I have been investing in real estate for over 10 years.  We started small and have been able to get over 70 properties in those 10 years.  It seemed like we hit a point of critical mass that finally opened some doors that allowed us to make big leaps in the last few years.

Cory has a unique skill set that has been a huge blessing for us.  He can do just about anything.  It wasn’t always like that.  His dad was a roofer and a painter so he was pretty well versed in those area.  He has learned through trial and error, magazines, and this big books that you could buy at Home Depot before the internet had everything at your finger tips.  If he needed to wire his sisters basement; he went and bought a book on electric and figured it out.  He can now build a housefrom the ground up!  That has saved us thousands upon thousands of dollars and there is no way we would be where we are today if we were hiring people to do all of the work.

That does not mean that you have to have this skill set to be successful in real estate.  This is just our story.  One website that I have gained TONS of knowledge from and is a valuable resource is Bigger Pockets.  Take a look at their getting started in real estate investing overview and let me know what you think!
