in canada you have to wait 12 months before you can turn around and sell it with zero capital gains, and up here we also can't write off the mortage interest on our taxes.

it is very common with home builders up here

You need a real estate license.

Not too hard to get but takes lots of learning..

Without a license youll be paying tens of thousands to agents to do all the paperwork.. And their is LOTS and LOTS of paperwork.

Foreclosed homes is the way to go. Buy 'em for almost nothing, rent them out as-is, use the rent money to fix them up, increase rent, etc. Once the house is as nice as it's gonna get, you can either sell it, or keep renting it for long-term income. Plus, you can write off on taxes if you for some reason lose money for the year on the house. (IE repair or expenses is greater than profit, you can write off the difference of the average income.)

Better yet, use the money from the first house to buy a second, once you have a few properties you can hire a managing company to take care of maintenance problems for about 10-15% of the house's profit, and you don't have to do anything. If you make, say, $1500 a month on two houses, that's a little over 30.5k/year before taxes for doing NOTHING at all.

And rented houses have a nice way of paying for their own mortgage.

Internet stocks did a few years back, I have no ideal if it will,

Houses in college towns usually range from 90-125k. If you can raise enough money for a new car (9-15k) you've got enough to front on a loan for a house. Which then pays for itself.

You only need a license if you plan on reselling houses. If you just plan on being a landlord, you need nothing.

being a landlord might be good money but it's not as simple as you make it out to be. my grandfather and my father worked in the realestate business all their lives (various ventures, including renting) and after seeing all the shit you get to deal with, people destroying the property, having to get them evicted and tons of other things, i wouldn't even do it. a lease dosn't protect you at all really, how many have broken their leases here? and then renting in a college town? man, you're going to have hella repair costs. lots of younger people that are just there for a short time. most don't give a shit about keeping it nice, since they will be moving soon anyway. and competition is very high in college towns as most students rent.  :stoned:

Sure, all those sellers and books do an excellent job of making it all sound easy and fast. That's their job - to motivate you to get off your fluffy-recliner and start huntin' down houses and inspecting cupboards.

As with just about any other real, honest and down to earth approach to build real wealth, real estate takes time, patience, hard work and discipline. Most of the "hard work" is usually management intensive. So you can then see that management skills are a fundamental necessity if you wish to go far in this business, unless you don't mind paying fees for property management firms to handle your properties [which usually means some loss of flexibility in how your properties are sold, rented and maintained].

And of course, one can gain such skills simply by learning as you go - as long as you start small, and if you're smart, with alot of studying under your belt.
There's so many books on this subject, it's almost intoxicating. So let me help you a little bit in that area...

One solid, clear, and precise "nuts and bolts" book I heartily recommend is:
"The 36 Hour Real Estate Investing Course" by Jack Cummings

"Real Estate Riches" by Dr. Dolf DeRoos is a very compelling book with all the intricacies of real estate exposed, that make you jump off your seat and go: "Wow! Why didn't I get into this earlier?!"

And last, but not least:
"Real Estate Loopholes" by Diane Kennedy and Gary Sutton. Name says it all.


"You can't beat real estate." -Donald Trump

"Buy land. God isn't making any more." -Oprah Winfrey

Its the only thing that worries me about the whole thing.

No, it's not illegal, but IMO it's a flaw with the system that is the root of much poverty and exploitation. I suggest reading Progress and Poverty by Henry George. He lays out in a detailed manner the problems with our current system of land ownership, and provides a brilliant solution to it.
