Although there are countless investors who own rental property – and who are also making good money “on the side” – there are some who may be wondering how to take this part-time endeavor and turn it into a full-time career.
The good news is that being a full-time real estate investor can be profitable. The bad news, though, is that investment real estate can also be extremely costly if you go about it the wrong way.
So, how exactly do you transition from being a part-time landlord to a full-time real estate investor?
First, it is essential to gather as much information as you can about how to set income generating goals, as well as on how to set up your real estate business so that you not only capitalize on opportunities, but also reduce your risk of large losses.
There are any number of ways to do this, such as reading real estate business books, and (even better) reaching out and talking directly with people who are already (successfully) making their living this way.
Oftentimes, it can be beneficial to segue out of your present job, and not entirely shut the door until your investments have been producing a certain amount of monthly income for a period of time. That way, you can be more assured that your incoming cash flow won’t be starting at $0 when you tell your full-time employer goodbye.
Even as a full-time real estate investor, you could find that your time is better spent finding and acquiring more properties, as versus managing tenants and performing property maintenance. If this is the case, working with a professional property manager could be the answer.
