Flashback – How to start

I started with real estate by listening to podcasts and reading books. Gathering knowledge, everyone around me had said it was too risky, trouble, too hard, you will lose everything, your basic doom and gloom. I gathered my own knowledge to evaluate those statements from friends and family.

You are who you associate with, so if you just listen to everyone around you then you inevitably will become them. You know what I found out? Once I purchased my first property it went from no one around me knew anything about Realestate to oh I own a rental, I own a condo, I own an apartment building. When everyone around me was predicting failure and I was contemplating these decisions, there were people that never said anything. They were silenced by the doom sayers, the negativity, once I started my own ventures and learning, people started coming out of the woodwork around me, everyone had a property or two! …. What the heck… I started associating with different people.

Where did I start? I started with single family homes but there are many routes to take, depending on you and what you like, what are you comfortable with. I always thought, You shouldn’t go to bed worried about things so find your comfort level with investing. Norada has everything to start, when I first found them, I think there were 3-5 of the best markets, now they have expanded across the country. They evaluate the best areas to own rental properties.

I came from a single parent house with four kids. My mom was a waitress and my sister helped pay the bills. I didn’t have any silver spoon in my mouth but I was able to break that cycle and I’m still learning about money and finances everyday. They just don’t teach you these things and it seemed like people didn’t want to share!
