Real Estate Rookie

Education

Most rookie real estate investors want to hit a home run on their first deal, Annie and Trey Johnson did it completely on accident. Neither of them were interested in being landlords or real estate investors, but after they made six figures profits on their first home, they realized there was real money in the real estate game.Annie and Trey were looking for a home to raise their family in. They found the perfect plot of land which had a new manufactured home and a scenic view. After living in the home for a few years they decided to move elsewhere to be closer to family, and instead of selling it, they decided to rent it out for a year.Now they were landlords by accident, and as the money started to flow in every month they questioned “is this something people are normally doing to make money?”. Fast forward a year, they subdivided the land, sold the home, and walked away with profits exceeding $200,000. Not bad for a couple of rookies!Annie and Trey now invest out of state, building up their real estate portfolio by rehabbing inexpensive homes.
