I just found this website and forum and have been reading through the information…finally…what looks to be an awesome site without the “give us $$$ and we’ll show you what to do” catch.
I feel as the original poster does - a newbie here who always comes back to researching real estate. My husband and I are hard workers, but still live paycheck to paycheck no matter how hard we try. I keep thinking there has to be a better way. I know I can’t go back in time and change the choices I’ve made that have led to where I am today, but I keep telling myself that it’s not too late to be successful.
I, too, am fearful, but perhaps that’s why at 51 I have no real substance to who I am or how we live (which I know could be worse — it’s not rock bottom, by any means…just week to week). I want to start slow and try to find one property that would work and give us the extra boost of confidence we need to continue and be successful.
Thank you for all of the information and for this place to commune with others who have been there. I am eager to learn and to jump into the water, but one thing I always realize is that I overwhelm myself with loads of information!
Any advice for this newbie on how to learn, start and not get overwhelmed – I know that is where the fear usually creeps in.
Thank you all!
