After much thought and prayer, I’ve decided to take the plunge and finally invest in my first real estate deal [excluding my residence purchased 15 years ago]! It’s a bit scary to take a monetary risk and possibly wait years on a return, but it’s time to take action!
My ultimate goal is to add to my retirement nest egg while giving back to the community through establishing safe transitional housing. As a licensed Louisiana real estate broker and natural snoop, I hope that I’ll be able to spot some profitable & fair deals.
Since I’m doing this ‘venture alone, the properties I plan to focus on initially are in rural areas – most have been adjudicated to a Louisiana parish for non-payment of taxes.
Now its time for due diligence!
