This post should serve as a reminder for all of us (including me) – we tend to forget the Fun element. No matter what we do, we should be having fun and enjoy not just the end result but the process itself! It’s amazing how many opportunities can real estate provide at a hand’s reach. It’s your time and your decisions – you have the power to search, negotiate and choose to buy or sell to a great extent at your own terms. With the right people in place, you can easily sign a contract and acquire a property within a mouse click and get the keys in the mail. How fun is that? My parents would have never imagined such a thing is even possible at their time. The best thing about real estate is that you do not need to be a fit for it because It fits Your needs! If you like traveling – take advantage of tax benefits and write off your travel expenses when you go check on your properties. If you prefer the comfort of your home, make your own home office and work from there. A lot of times you have to choose between being independent and successful – with real estate investing you can have both, without sacrificing your lifestyle.
