Building Wealth with Real Estate Investing

You will find in this real estate investing guide real world investment deals that I have made right here in Atlanta. These are both my experiences and learned/practiced knowledge from my years in real estate investing. My intent is to share what I learn so you can use it to your advantage.

I believe in real estate investing as another tool to help me build my wealth. And it is with that background objective that I invest.

In order for you to start real estate investing it is absolutely crucial for you to define why you want to invest and what you want to achieve – this will guide everything else. As an example you can read why I chose residential real estate investing in order to supplement my wealth building plan.

A begginers real estate investing journey starts with a purpose and is then materialized with goals and a plan.

“Every person who invests in well-selected real estate in a growing section of a prosperous community adopts the surest and safest method of becoming independent, for real estate is the basis of wealth”

- Theodore Roosevelt

In the following pages I will share the steps I have taken to embark in residential real estate investing. My aim is to prove to you, not just tell you, why I think this is a good investment. At the same time I want you to see that if I can do it then so can you while sharing with you lessons learned from my experience.
