How to get started
Start with what you have. Your property and or space. If you are trying to generate the funds for your investment, you can rent out your property for events, unused rooms and or space. There are apps similar to AIRBNB to so so. This is really important because you have to put down 25% cash if you are financing the property (mortgage).
House hack- buying a multi-unit property; living in one space and renting out the other. If done right, your space is paying for itself and you can make income.
You can also buy properties to flip or invest in tax liens. These are really good starting points to research.
Always remember one stream of income isn’t enough.
