The information you’ve received is correct. At your age you’re too young to enter into contracts on your own?.but here’s a few thoughts for you.
I’d buy the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki and read and reread it carefully. I think it will give you some good ideas. Even if you’re too young to enter contracts, you’re not to young to start developing the qualities that will later lead to your success as a real estate investor. I think this book will help you formulate some ideas that will help you for the rest of your life?and open your mind up to some possibilities right now. Part of the book concerns a story of Robert’s life when he was a young man.
Once you’ve read the book, you might sit down and have a discussion with your Mom and Dad. You might be able to open their eyes up to the great possibilities in real estate. If you are successful in that, it’s possible for them to do transactions for your benefit. This can be done legally?you’ll just need their help.
Even if your Mom and Dad aren’t particularly interested I wouldn’t let that stop your desire. It’s refreshing to see a young man like yourself taking initiative. I can tell you I started earning money at a very early age?and many of the things I learned back then are things that I still use today.
Good luck to you?and if I can be of further help to you feel free to email me at any time.
