This Is my Journal and all are invited to join me on my journey. A little about me, humm where to begin, well I traveled alot as a child and always had a big interest in real estate. I'm a former Army brat, and had a typical upbringing. Never rich or well off by any means, But we managed, My growing up instilled a want to never struggle for money.
I'm bordering 30 now and have a family of my own. I work a very demanding job, witch requires me to be away from home for undetermined amounts of time. I didn't plan on being in this line of work for this long, but money was good and seemed to be a means to a end. I'm quite blessed to have a understanding wife. Altho its difficult to explain to the kids why I'm always gone..Well my wife and I worked extremely hard to get where we are now. But were still not rich or well off, but we are in a good position to venture into real estate. I currently have a 800+ credit rating and have paid off our first home. We have a bit of money in savings. So we are off to reach our goals. She will be doing alot of the work in this venture. I do research out here @ work when I get a chance to, but she does the bird doging and visits the court house for info.
We will be going after REO's and Foreclosed homes. Our local market is going down and rent and hold seems to be the strategy for now. We will try rehabbing some and test the waters. But the past year has been bad for many in my town. We live in a Oilfield town, and with the administration change Many ppl lost jobs here. So there are alot of investing opportunities. So here we go....
