My Plan For My Certificate… - Posted by Scott (AK)

I am a vet who still has a certificate also.
What I decided to do is to learn to do real estate with some of the techniques here on the site. I will be actively looking for a home I can get into well below market and tie it up for a few years. I have learned how to gain control of houses for 4-6 yrs quite easily without my own money or using my VA benefits.
When i find the home I like that makes good business sense as a personal residence I’ll look at locking it up “Subject to” so I can gain the tax benefits, and look at using my VA benefits to buy a few years down the line.
Therefore walking into a home with built in equity and having the benefits of ownership well in advance of having to commit my entire livelyhood.
You may consider something along these lines yourself.
Hope this helps,
