EPISODE 020: My First 6 Months: An Interview with John Edwards
Categories: Investor Interview
Description & Show Notes: In this episode, I interview one of my clients, John Edwards. John is an Auburn grad in his 40's, living with his wife and 3 kids in the East Atlanta suburbs, and he bought his first rental property with me in early 2020. We started looking at places during the fall, and just a few months later, he was doing some small improvements on his first rental and preparing for his first tenant. Right after that, he got it rented and it's been pretty smooth sailing since then. He actually bought a house right next to one of my rentals, so I was able to give him pretty realistic numbers on what to expect for rent, and now he was off to the races!
This is my first interview that meets with a recent "first time investor" client and looks at the buying process and their first 6 months of this being their new reality. Sorry if it is a little choppy or redundant, I promise I'll get better over time. That is a lesson in itself - as John says in the interview... prepare as much as you can, and then before you're ready, start anyway! On that note, here we go!
