Aside from location, such as conveniences for business, shopping, schools, and all the other attractive reasons for choosing a home, there is a very easy way to start in the ownership of several homes that can earn you money, as well as pay off in equity when you decide to sell them. Real estate investments could be anything such as undeveloped property, to a business venture.
Buying single family homes is another way to provide for an income via renting them out. One such means is by looking for a home that fits the “needs” of those requiring location for all of the above reasons, as well as finding one that has the potential for living in, and utilizing the rest of the home for providing boarding for those who need temporary accommodations until they either buy a home themselves, or find a suitable apartment.
This gives you an income for however long you decide to keep the present home as well as using the income you make annually by the rentals, including your own, to purchase another home.
By then, the need for you to remain in the home as the principal owner as required by the lenders and insurance companies, will no longer be necessary, and you can start all over again by living in your second purchase, and doing the same as you did with the original.
Now you have two homes that are providing a steady income. You can do this year after year until you have enough homes that you’d need your own maintenance crew to handle all the properties.
The more homes, the more of your time and energy is sapped, as dealing with tenants is no picnic for Mr.& Mrs Nice. Its a business and has to be handled as such.
The big payoff aside from making steady income is when you begin selling off for nice profits. I personally went from almost losing my home and everything else because of circumstances I couldn’t avoid. I always have worked with the idea to “work smart instead of harder” and I thought, why chase the money, let it come to you.
My first ad landed me many calls for occupying my home with, but before the ad, I did some inside redesigning so as to be able to afford privacy for me and my tenants. I was hooked and never looked back. Now I’m ready to start selling off and reap the rewards of years of being a landlord and multiple property owner.
Worked for me. Good luck
