If you are thinking about trying to make your money go further, there are a lot of ways in which you might be able to do that, and it’s something that you can certainly approach in quite a few interesting ways. The truth is that starting your own property investment portfolio is one of the strongest ways to do this, and it’s something that you can definitely get a lot out of if you want to try it out. Let’s take a look at what you might want to bear in mind as you do this right now.

Investing in real estate has been a life changing experience for me. We have renovated over 70 properties in the Central Florida area, and I have learned so much about investing and renovating over the course of these past 20+ years.


First of all, you need to make sure that you are definitely in a good place to be doing this right now, and that’s something that you have to be really careful about if you want it to work. There is the matter of being financially stable enough, of course, but then there is also the fact that you need to feel you have the time and the mental space to start investing in properties – especially if you are going to be hands on in flipping them or whatever else. So think carefully and be honest with yourself, and you should find this helps.


You will probably want to have the right kind of help by your side too, especially as you are just starting out with all this. There are a few major kinds of help that you should probably be keen for, including having a mortgage broker who can help you to find the best mortgage for you, and of course having the help of a real estate team that knows what they are doing. If you’re here in Central Florida, I hope you’ll reach out to me at Castro Realty Group, if you’re in the Fairfax, Virginia area, you can contact a local expert like Samson properties agents. Wherever you are, look for a Realtor that has experience, education, and a local presence that you can rely on. That help will make the whole process considerably easier, so it’s something you should definitely think about.


Of course, if you are not sure how you are going to fund it, then you might need to ask yourself whether it’s really the right thing to do at the moment, and this is going to be something that you might want to think about carefully. Funding your property investment portfolio is going to be highly important and it’s vital that you have a proper plan in place. That could just be mortgages, but even then you’ll need to make sure that you are putting the deposit together. So make sure you have a solid plan for this before you do anything else.


Finally, it’s a vital part of any investment portfolio, and something that you are going to have to make sure you get right. If you are diversifying your portfolio effectively, you will find that you are much more likely to actually end up in a good place financially, so this is something to think about. As long as you do this, it should mean that you are much more likely to end up in a good place with all this.

My personal experiences with real estate investing

I’ve had some wonderful experiences and have tried to share them for others to think about and implement. By far, the most effective one was an investment that I started when my son was just a baby:

I also helped my son invest in and flip his first condo. You can follow through that entire process, including all of the financing and profits made here:

And I’ve also documented several of my own flips, including profit sheets to show you how much it really cost and how much was truly made. Here are a few:
