This is purely a boasting post, and hopeful an encouraging post. I just finished getting everything together to give to the CPA to do my taxes. Nearly 16 years ago when I bought the first rental, i never imagined we wouid make this much money. I havenít had a job since the early 90s, ( I was self employed) but the wife worked up until about 4 years ago. ( she is still in her 40s ) After totaling all of our numbers, before all the hocus pocus the CPA will do with depreciation and deductions and what nots. We cleared about $225 k. All off of rentals. We have less than 30 in an amazing market. Our net worth is now better than 4 million, all off of rentals. Of course expenses were down last year, since we only had two turnovers, and I am an avid DIYer, but still, we made great money, all off of rentals, I made many trips out of state last year, took many naps, and only set my alarm clock on the days I was going to catch a plane. All off of rentals! The dream can come true. We started with a few thousand dolllars and a great credit rating for massive leverage. Work your rear end off for several years, and see for your self. RENT ON!!! --75.141.xxx.xxx

Congratulations!

What flavor of city is your market? Are you in a super-urban area, like Austin or Houston or D/FW? Or are you in a more middle-sized kind of place, like Corsicana or Waco or Galveston? Or did you enter into a more down-to-earth market that eventually got absorbed into a bigger metropolitan area over the years, like Grapevine or McKinney or League City?

I'm very happy for you! You worked hard for your success! --96.46.xxx.xx

That is awesome! You took some risks and the timing for you sounds like it was right. I've had similar fortune.

But I've been doing this for over 30 years and have decided to start selling while the market is so elevated. I've just become spoiled but it's hard to give it up. --216.186.xxx.xx

TX must be booming. The Dems are killing NJ with their taxes. I am covering rental expenses with a small monthly amount left. I am paying over 20 K in property taxes.

Congratulations!!! We started around the same time but only have 6 sfr mainly because hubby is not crazy about debt:( Leverage is the way to go in my opinion but since we are almost at retirement age probably no more buying and everything will be paid off - only 1 left - and we will have a nice monthly income. We are in DFW metroplex. --47.188.xx.xx

Congratulations, yes it can be done. Not for the get rich quick crowd or those not willing to hustle at it but for those with the right attitude it can be a great business. --50.26.xx.xxx

Deanna, I am in North Tarrant County. Not Gravevine but close. AllyM, yes, Texas is BOOMING! Property taxes are high here also, but no state income tax, and less regulations . We have a few tenants that work for the Amazon in our area making great money. Too bad you all lost out on those 25,000 jobs. As long as we can keep er Red, it will continue to prosper. Hopefully the ones pouring in from Blue states realize now why their economy is in the dumps, and not turn us Blue. --75.141.xxx.xxx

Love this ! Keeps me going. With every property I buy I wonder if this is the right property to buy at this time. Knock on wood, so far I've done my homework and its paying off. In 10 years I have (1) 4 family (3) SF and hoping to buy another 4 family. Soooo many said "what are you crazy - being a LL is horrible". Waiting for the day I can sip a drink on a beach in January while watching my bank account go up as the rents are deposited. --47.14.xx.xxx

Not Saying,

Congratulations! That is a great job!

would you be willing to share more details? Approximate dates, prices paid, rehab costs, rent, current value?

Also, what is your background?

Why did you go into real estate?

Thanks! --70.188.xx.xx
