When people ask me why I want to invest in Real Estate or why I have so many investment properties I always think to myself, why isn’t there an article handy like this one because people will listen for a moment or two, nod politely and then ignore what you are saying because they think you might be making it up and it’s too good to be true.
The reality is though that this is happening now and has been happening for decades, I didn’t make it up, I didn’t discover it…I just got on the band wagon.
Will you join me?
