My Journey to $2M/Year in Real Estate

From UpFlip.

When Todd Baldwin started his real estate investing business, his goal was to earn $1 million by age 30. He not only achieved that goal, he did it two years ahead of schedule by developing a winning formula based on real estate basics, and he shares that formula in this interview.

Investing in real estate doesn’t need to be complicated. Todd’s approach starts by keeping the focus on the tenants rather than the property. He’ll explain why this is a smart, along with his other real estate investing strategies and insider insights on how to invest in real estate the right way.

Those just starting out in real estate probably have a lot of questions, like how to buy your first rental property, how to research the local real estate market, and how to invest in real estate when you don’t have tons of cash laying around.

Todd didn’t know the answers to these questions when he started, either, and he learned some of his lessons through trial and error. In this interview, we’ll find out what mistakes he made, what he learned from those, and how he developed the investing strategy he uses today.

The truth is, anyone can make money with a real estate investment, and Todd is living proof. He started off as just a normal guy from a small town, and the expertise and skills he has today were developed over time as he bought and ran properties. That’s why he’s the perfect person to explain real estate investing for beginners and how to make money in real estate even if you’ve never bought property before.
