More About This Show
Josh always knew that real estate investing was an avenue he was interested in pursuing. However, he observed his uncle manage apartment buildings for years, and became aware of the commitment that is property management.

He saw the opportunity in investing, but he realized that if he could hire a property management team, a huge burden would be lifted. Today, he operates on that principle. He never considers a deal, unless he knows he can work with a property manager.

When he started assessing his goals, Josh first calculated his Freedom Number. He decided that if he were to acquire 10-15 rental real estate properties, he would easily be able to support his lifestyle. Once he had a clear picture of where he was going with his real estate journey, he felt confident that his goals were achievable. 

Additionally, he planned to replace all of his active income as a self-employed photographer with passive income through buy and hold real estate. Josh recently acquired two additional properties, and is seeing his goals come to fruition. Now he’s decided to adjust his goal, and instead match his active income by 2017.

On today’s show, Josh is elaborating on how he found financing as a self-employed individual. We’ll also go into the details of how he finds the best deals in his area, and his experience pulling all of the funds out of his retirement account.
