I bought my house 3 years ago with a VA loan (0 down) that is the only actual experience I have. I have read a few books (I'll list them if yall want to know), and I have watched 100's of YouTube videos. I only have about 5k cash and am not trying to get rich quick. My wife is going back to work after 8 years, she is getting her real estate license and working with another agent that sold us our home. My tentative plan is to save as much of her commissions as possible to get enough money to fix&flip houses for a while and keep a rental property when the income for the year is high (for taxes). I am seeking advice from people who are experienced and successful in the real estate market, not merely ambitious and well read people such as myself. If anyone is interested in having their brain picked I'm your guy..
