Hello and welcome to my blog! I started my real estate journey about a decade ago with no real idea of where to start.
(Almost) ten years later, I have bought and sold 3 properties. It hasn’t come without its headaches – nightmarish tenants (just a couple – most are wonderful!), struggling to keep up with mortgage payments, buying what I thought were lemons (turned out okay) and more.
Right now, I only have our family home and a 3-plex that I manage. The cash flow is good, and supplements income from my full-time job nicely. I guess I’m still a novice in many respects, but I’m glad how far I’ve come.
I started this blog so I could rant about property investing. That way, I don’t have to talk my wife’s ear off and I get to connect with some like-minded property enthusiasts!
Now, I have two young boys who keep me very busy. Since the kids came along, I’ve needed to be extra careful about my finances again. Cash flow’s become more tight! In the beginning I would lay awake at night, thinking about whether we could afford this or that. I worried that maybe we’d not have financial freedom as soon as we had wished.
But you know what they say: your mindset shouldn’t be – “I can’t afford this.”
Rather, it should be “How can I afford this?”
That’s why, every now and again I talk about my personal finances. If I get a hair-brained money making idea from the internet or a shower brain storming session, then I’ll be sure to share it with you here!
Anyway, stick around and I hope you’ll get some value out of my ramblings haha. If you have any comments or feedback, share it with me in the comments or the contact me page!
