Escaping the rat race at 26 isn’t easy, but Isaac Lane, Arizona-based investor and rookie landlord, is doing it through out-of-state investing! Isaac started investing only a couple of years ago, but he’s been scaling quickly as he purchased five rentals in his first year of investing alone. Now, he balances his time between working his day job as an engineer for a commercial real estate firm and managing his properties that are multiple states away!
Welcome back to another Rookie Reply, where Isaac is helping us answer some common property management questions. He gives advice on how to start investing out of state and where to begin building your real estate team. And for those who still haven’t done their first deal yet, Isaac talks about property management, maintenance requests, inherited tenants, smart devices, landlord insurance, and why you ALWAYS change your locks during a tenant turnover.
If you want Ashley and Tony to answer a real estate question, you can post in the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group! Or, call us at the Rookie Request Line (1-888-5-ROOKIE).
