Things You’ll Learn In This Episode 

The easiest way to start your investing
Househacking is the perfect way for beginners to start dabbling in investing. With this strategy, you would buy a house, and live in it, while also renting out. If you do it properly, your renter will pay the majority of your mortgage payment, and zero cost your biggest expense.

How to balance your job with being an investor
Managing multiple properties on your own is often difficult and time consuming. It is especially important for 9-5 workers to work with a property management company if they intend to own multiple locations.

How to keep property managers honest
Good property managers are hard to find, and even the most experienced and successful investors have a hard time hiring people they can trust. Getting a property manager doesn’t mean you should take a step back, you still have to do your due diligence and actively track everything they are doing.

Why money shouldn’t hold you back from investing
Money isn’t the only thing that makes you a great candidate for investing. There are many other valuable skills, insights and resources that can be an advantage. The advantages include a network of knowledgeable people, or skills in a specific trade.
