More importantly, we absolutely LOVE REAL ESTATE. We started investing in February 2020 and have racked up 22 units of rental real estate in Cincinnati OH, which is where we live. 2) Education -We spent a year reading books on real estate investing, listening to podcasts, reading BP forums and analyzing deals. 4) Network and build relationships: Real estate is a \"We\" sport, not a \"me\" sportYour network is your net worth and this is especially true in real estate. Once we hit our freedom number, we want to transition to real estate full time.
