Quickfire Real Estate Investing Tips for Beginners

Probably Zillow, because I am endlessly looking at house (even when I’m not buying!). A close second would be Instagram or Tiktok!

2. How many hours a night do you sleep?

Usually around 9 hours (I love my sleep!)

The longer you wait to get started, the longer you wait to see results.

4. Do you invest out-of-state?

Yes! In Tennessee and Texas.

5. Have you ever house hacked?

Yes! We’ve done it twice so far. It was a huge factor in our ability to save and scale.

6. Do you have a go-to paint color for your rentals?

I typically choose based on the house – i.e. is it a historic home, what is the vibe of the area, etc.

7. How long does it take you to analyze a property for investment?

The initial analysis, maybe 2 minutes. More of a deep dive into numbers could take more time to collect the necessary details on market, neighborhood, house, comps, etc.

8. How old were you when you purchased your first rental property?

26 years old.

9. Hard money loan or conventional?


10. What is the #1 piece of advice you would give a new real estate investor just starting out?

You can find an opportunity in any market. It’s all about getting creative and making the numbers work.

11. What made you want to invest in real estate?

I saw the financial freedom it gave me and I want to use that to create time freedom to spend time with my family.

12. What’s a landlord “hack” you use to make your life easier?

Delegate, delegate, delegate. Don’t get caught up in the “I have to do it all mentality”, in fact you probably shouldn’t be doing anything anyway!
