Our guest today, Riley Oickle, is the founder of Your First Income Property where he teaches people how to purchase and manage their income properties for those who want to use real estate as a tool for wealth growth. Today we are talking about how you can use real estate as a tool to grow your wealth.
Riley chats with us about how he got started in real estate, the mindset shifts (real estate vs. stocks, etc), the steps in the process of buying real estate, and the number that is considered a healthy profit when looking at return on investment (ROI).
Riley explains that an integral part in the process is learning that you can buy property. He explains that a lot of people do not realize that and once you have that realization, it opens up the possibilities.
Riley further explains that there are three steps in the process of buying property:

Riley prefers 2-4 unit buildings (and he explains why in the episode).
Figure out what type of strategy you want to use.
Flip? Wholesale? BRRRR strategy?
