After getting away from her 9-5 corporate job while visiting Yosemite, Kristie LeSage realized that she needed a career change. She quickly found that the fastest way out was by purchasing investment properties. Since starting investing in real estate 2 years ago she now owns 26 doors.
In today's episode, I talk with Kristie about how she and her husband go into buying and hold housing. Kristie explains why she would have had to continue working her 9-5 job if she had bought the "house on the hill." She clarifies what it means to house hack, and why you need to be financially savvy when starting out. She also shares how she and her husband were able to find some outlier properties that had more rental value than initially thought.
"There is something you can be doing every day to inch yourself a little bit closer to closing on that next deal or that first deal.” –Kristie LeSage
