Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
-Thomas Edison

This blog is aimed at the person who has a strong desire to invest in real estate but wants to keep their regular 9 to 5 job. This person, like me, may not start off with a lot of disposable income. My wife and I have to pinch pennies and think long and hard about it before taking the plunge to buy a property. People who posses the extra money can afford to hire professionals to take much of the burden of their shoulders. They can hire attorneys, real estate agents, landscapers, plumbers and electricians.

But for me, the key is to not rely on on the so-called real estate professionals to help you along the way. What I propose is that you learn to do all these things yourself, just as you would learn all aspects of any hobby that you pursue. It is more difficult to do it all yourself, but it is more financially rewarding, more deeply satisfying, and you will learn a wide assortment of skills that will serve you well throughout life.
