How To Buy Your First Rental Property: Step-By-Step

One question that I’m asked is: “How do I actually buy an investment property?”

I’m going to walk you through it all today, step-by-step.

You know, even after I bought my first property, it would have been difficult to recite all the steps. This is partly due to the process’s 30-60+ day duration.

Though real estate has made more ordinary people wealthy than anything else, it is illiquid.

It takes more time to buy and sell real property.

There’s no brokerage “point-click-done” or Robinhood swipes here.

This is both a good and bad thing.

Because there are several steps involved, there is no panic selling in real estate.

This illiquidity keeps real estate prices more stable than nearly any other asset class.

This stability (via illiquidity) is one reason why real estate comprises the heart of so many wealthy peoples’ portfolios.

Real estate prices are a smooth, glassy lake compared to the raging sea storm of volatile gold, silver, cryptocurrency, oil, and stock markets.

In under 28 minutes, I lay out every step that you must know for buying rental property.
