An investors first year
Landlord Has No Regrets After Year of Investing [Real Estate Street Journal]
It's been a busy year for Jeff Jones. The 33-year-old real-estate investor has a full-time Microsoft Corp. sales job and is the landlord of two Seattle single-family homes, which he purchased within the past 19 months. He now plans to own 20 investment properties by 2020. As his first year of real-estate investing comes to a close, so does this series, which has traced his investment efforts.
Looking back, Mr. Jones says he doesn't have any regrets about the homes bought -- or the purchases he lost out on. Investors, he says, have to start somewhere, then apply what they learn with each transaction to other deals. He's made smart investments in water-view property in his local market, he says.
