I want to be clear in that I don’t care for the term “starter home.” In 1976 when tall ships were bustling through the Hudson River headed to lower Manhattan, Apple computer was formed, the $2 bill was issued, and Nadia Comaneci won 3 gold medals at the Montreal Olympics, my parents put $1200 down on a…

When thinking about investments a few thing come to mind: Dave Ramsey, snowball debt, nightmare renters, tycoon, and portfolio, to name a few. But the reality is that rental property is an investment for the knowledgeable. It is not a step to be taken lightly and it is better to be well-versed in real estate…
