Be A Successful Real Estate Investor – What You Need To Know

You don’t need to have money to be a successful real estate investor.

Many people have a romanticized view of real estate investing. The reality is that being a real estate investor is not for everyone. People who may possess many of the key assets needed to be a successful real estate investor will hang it up after the first bad experience.

In essence, he unilaterally changed our fixed, firm contract into a time-and-materials contract.

The situation rapidly devolved to the point that I called the police to remove him from my property because he wouldn’t leave, and he was threatening to tear the drywall out. The officer showed up and treated me as if I was the villain, and the contractor delighted in informing me that the officer called me a pencil pusher.
