Real Estate Updates

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates as of late! In case you were wondering, I’m still hanging around Manila (Bonifacio Global City), and as I’ve alluded to in previous posts, I’m trying to lockdown and secure my very first personal residence.

Although it’s certainly an exciting time right now trying to [click to continue…]

I really don’t know what I’m getting myself into… but you know what, if people are ever honest and open about their own lives, they would be more willing to admit the same thing — In life, seldom do we have all the answers staring at us right smack in our face. You just do the best you can, and keep at it.

Live and learn.

In my own case, no, right now I can’t say definitively that I’m [click to continue…]

Real Estate Investing (REI) is a super popular path many folks take when they try to get to early FI. If you buy correctly, sure, you could have a field day and make more gains than you ever dreamed possible. Unfortunately, it isn’t always that easy to [click to continue…]

So, lately I’ve been having lots of epiphanies when it comes to Real Estate Investing (REI), and more than ever before, I’m holding firm in my newfound belief to focus entirely (pretty much) on sticking to Class A/Tier 1 properties.

Naturally, because I made my life-changing gains via Bay Area Class A/Tier 1 rental properties, I always like to use them as an example… But astute readers [click to continue…]

Real life is all about learning from our mistakes, growing/improving, and if we are lucky enough to be able to do so (which I am) share our insights/wisdom/knowledge gained with others. Unfortunately, the problem with the above approach, right off the bat, is admitting to ourselves (and to the world) that we even made a mistake to begin with…

I’ve been blogging since 2012, so you don’t have to tell me twice, and I know full well by now that attempting to be upfront and honest with people is not gonna win you many fans/followers…

For the most part, people aren’t interested in the truth when it comes to early FI… Instead, they want you to feed them a happy fairytale where the entire ride is smooth sailing and there are never any major bumps in the road…

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, as I try and process everything that’s happened this year and attempt to put the past firmly behind me. As mentioned in many posts of late, I recently (finally) eradicated myself free from an absolutely horrible situation in [click to continue…]

As I’ve shared with readers in previous posts (albeit very vaguely), I’ve gone through some very trying and difficult times this year. More specifically (and succinctly) — My junk properties in South Chicago were losing me money hand over fist, driving me insane, and causing endless grief/frustration. In other words, I saw the [click to continue…]

To say that it’s been a rough and tumble 2018 so far would be a pretty accurate assessment of how things have been going for me… As readers may recall, I’ve thrown out multiple hints in recent posts about some of the struggles (beyond aggravating frustration) that I’ve been dealing [click to continue…]

I attended a real estate meet up last night… Say what!?! Yup, that’s right, on a whim I decided to join a good buddy of mine and attend a workshop out in Fremont. I’ll admit, being in a classroom environment (after avoiding it for so long) felt kind of weird at first, and as the room started to get filled with more and more people, things just became more and more uncomfortable for me…
