At the moment, this site assumes some knowledge on your part of the basics of buying a house. It's a collection of anecdotal information on buying and selling real estate, and increasing the value of your real estate. I also plan on addressing some ways to get the most bang for your buck when purchasing a home.
I grew up in a construction family. My parents bought their first rental in 1986. I bought my first in 1997. In addition to being a licensed salesperson in CA, I was a building inspector for over 2 years.
I'm trying to cross reference my blogs. New friends welcome
After 12 years as an investor, with some lessons learned from my parents experiences, I'm thinking of writing a book. I am trying to motivate myself. I have plenty of stories--especially about mistakes I have made--and I've made enough that I could weave a cautionary tale out of shredded income. Perhaps, something on "How to lose a million dollars in real estate" or "Handbook for throwing away money" and, yet landlording has done well for me, I just made plenty of mistakes along the way.
