My friends and I have a campfire at my house every Friday. We talk about everything, including our goals later in life. I bring up that I’m going to do Real Estate, and I get quotes like these.
Quotes like this make me want to do Real Estate even more and more just to prove everybody wrong. I hear these quotes all the time from many people.
How many times you guys heard quotes like the following?
“Real Estate is like 1/2 luck, if your rental house is vanent your F***ed.”
“If houses arent selling at all, you will be stuck without income for maybe a 1/2 a year”
“Im going to go to college and get a good paying job, thats the key to being wealthy” :bs
“You never know what could happen, somebody might burn down your house and your left with NOTHING, yeah thats a good way to make money Josh”
“Your better off investing in something that people will always need, like a Graveyard, that’ll make alot more money than houses, because people need a place to be buried”
One of my favorites… (Which I know is not true.)
“It requires money to buy houses Josh, and you don’t have any money, so your going to be working and saving every penny you make for like years before you can buy anything”
This one is my absolute favorite
“Josh, you are simply not open minded enough to understand that, what if, WHAT IF, Real Estate fails? Your so hooked on Real Estate, if it doesnt work out, your f****ed”.
