The book Rich Dad, Poor Dad changed how I live. So my husband has regularly been about real estate and living off his assets one day. I didn’t absolutely get the giant push to have apartments for rent, and after reading that book, I totally get it. It lays out how people can get wealthy, basically if you want to do well financially, saving cash does not do anything. So why have a big number in your bank account? It is smarter to invest in a property that will make you more money over each month. My husband and I are regularly looking at homes for sale. My husband right now has two rental properties; He has a duplex and a residential home for rent in our area. I suppose that commercial real estate is his next immense hurdle, however for me I just want to buy a small rental property. I also am not against purchasing a single family home, fixing it up and flipping it for a profit. My husband and I are on a first name basis with the real estate agent in town. Harriet is regularly giving us a call on up-to-date sites that are going for sale that we can eventually rent out. Finding the right deal is taxing though. I don’t want to spend an obscene amount of money but I don’t want to buy a totally useless home. I am planning on getting quite a few rental properties under our belt. It would be nice to suppose that if I lost our task, our rent could spend our savings on our mortgage. My husband and I aren’t quite there yet.
