My dream since I was in my early 20’s was to own my own home, that grew as I continued threw collage, to me wanting to flip homes. At the time I had an idea of what house flipping was, but it was not as well known about as it is today.
One of my resolutions this year was to fix myself, I had lost track of my goals, my wants and my dreams. I had gotten use to not getting what I had hoped for and gave up. These last few months have led me on a journey of discovering my self again, realizing that my dreams could really happen, if I take action and do something to make them happen.
I have done some research and I still want to do a little more before jumping into flipping and investing in rental properties, I have time as currently I don’t have the income to fund it myself and I need to start networking to see who may be interested in helping me get started.
One thing I know that is very important to have is a why, why do I want to invest in real estate? My why and my end goal is to be able to help people who are like my mother, who because of no fault of their own they can not rent a home or apartment. They can not buy, and they are stuck living with family or in very low cost housing in bad areas. This is my why, but not my start goal. I would not feel comfortable taking the risk these people do bring with someone else’s money, this why will have to wait until I myself own the homes.
Another reason I really want to invest in flipping homes is that I love design, that is my degree and my passion, but I have found that I would rather fix things based on my own ideas, then deal with others at this point in my life. For me this has to do with my anxiety, I may one day be able to do design work for others, but right now, it’s reserved for myself and friends and family.
The best part about me doing this research and hopefully soon getting into real-estate investing is that I can share my journey with you, my readers. I have some amazing ideas for post that I hope will inspire you and of course once I do get started I plan on showing you my progress with each home.
Have you invested in real estate or flipped homes? What tips do you have for me?
