“I Am Still Doing Research”
The first time home buyers, especially the millennial age group spends a lot of time doing research. Unfortunately when it comes to having that first property also being an investment, all the research in the world doesn’t replace some practical experience.
This client was referred by a friend and was told he should set up a time to get together with me, which will be a smart move.
I am still deciding on the details of my plan but basically I am hoping to buy either a multifamily or a single family and fix it up and ideally rent it out for income. I am still doing research to the number of bedrooms and towns I am considering but I am most familiar with the West Hartford/Farmington/Simsbury area. Not completely attached to it but as I said I am most familiar with these sections of CT so I feel most comfortable investing in these areas.
I explained to him that I will coach him, so that he can avoid many of the mistakes that so many make when it comes to investing in real estate. It must go back to advice that my dad gave. He would always say “The man who learns from his own mistakes is a fool; the man who learns from the mistakes of others is much smarter”.
What advice would you give him?
