Budding Real Estate Guru

In 2002, she bought her first home ... by mistake. She purchased a property intending to rent it out, but near the end of the transaction found out her FHA loan required her to move into the property. Both she and he mother cried because they didn't want to be separated.

About - Paid Off - went harder

Equity Investing Pays Off

Her Real Estate investment strategy has always been conservative. While many people, advisers, and gurus grow using the leverage of loans, she stayed financially disciplined and paid off the property she bought in 2002 only six years later in 2008. This means that the revenue from her rental no longer went to its own mortgage, and she could start investing in other houses.
