What is this?

My wife and I are actively looking to buy our first rental property. We are feeling a mixture of excitement and anxiety. We have spent months educating ourselves on real estate as an investment strategy and are ready to roll up our sleeves and commit. I can't help but document things as I learn.
My goal is to document every step so I can repeat this playbook over and over again. I also hope this playbook is valuable for you if you are stumbling across it and it helps you get off the sidelines and buy your first rental property as well.

Who is behind this playbook?

Hi πŸ‘‹ I am Alex. I work for Carrot and my wife and I are on a mission to build our lives outside the 9-5 grind. We are actively looking for ways to buy assets that help us cash-flow into early retirement. We have a long way to go, but we recognize that real estate has made more millionaires than any other investment. You know what they say, "if you can't beat them, join them."
