Anyone reached FI through buy and hold real estate investing?

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 15:20:29 +0000

Hi,

I know it's not the preferred route to FI around these parts, but I'm really interested to here stories of anyone reaching FI through buy and hold real estate investing. How long did it take, how many units, how did you grow your portfolio etc.

I'm interested in going this route myself so I guess I'm just looking for some motivation / reassurance that it can be done.

Thanks!

Plum Island's Pink House Inspires a Real Estate Fantasy
New York Times
Several years ago, I called a real estate agent in my hometown, Newburyport, Mass., with (as one tends to bring to agents) a fantasy. I wanted to buy the Pink House. I had first glimpsed this house as a child, from the back seat of the family station ...

I am a 20 year old US Soldier with plans to begin a career in real estate after I leave the military.

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 10:27:22 +0000

So I am about a year away from the end of my service. I have served honorably up to this point, including currently being on my second deployment. I am an infantryman and unfortunately that includes not having an actual skill outside of the military. Before joining the military I had aspirations to have a career in real estate flipping houses. I put that aside, joined the military first and served like I planned. Now that I have achieved that goal and served our country honorably, my mind is back on track to my next goal.

So the question is where do I even begin? Where should I look for help? What should I read? Who should I talk to? What should I research? What should I not get caught up in? Where did you begin? Where should I network?

I have the Montgomery and Post 9/11 GI Bill available to me after I am out. The benefit is designed to help servicemembers and eligible veterans cover the costs associated with getting an education or training. So I could go to school and get educated in Real Estate.

I am looking to begin my career in my hometown of Bradenton, FL, with the little researched knowledge I have, I would like to say that it is a decent market to begin. I am willing to begin elsewhere but not too far that my children will grow up with little relations to their grandparents. I forgot to mention I have my first son on the way in a few months. That much more reason to be determined.

If anyone could help me out in any way, that being advice, tips, opinions etc. Thank you kindly. 🙂

Edit 1: I didn't mean to sound like my only intention is to flip houses. First and foremost I have zero experience in real estate, I have only what I have read and researched. I need a place to start and who better to ask than someone who has done that already. I would like to maybe someday be experienced enough, and then flip houses.

Edit 2: For anyone wondering, my mindset before was to not go to school but rather jump into an investment group with one of my best friends in Jacksonville, FL. Now I can see more than just my intentions, this thread has only helped shape the plan to my future and I will take as much as I can into account. I would like to thank everyone who had positive input, I have read every single comment and saved the ones I believed to be the most helpful to my development. To all the debbie downers, I appreciate your concern, but if I had any I would give up on the dream. Any further opinions would be helpful and appreciated. Thank you
