About Sam Smith:
I own 7 houses – a duplex and single family residences…even rent out part of my own residence! I started at age 29, 30 years ago. Buying a house one at a time. I also inherited a house ..purchased one from a family member…bought a house through a distressed sale with an out of state bank. I hold long term and do not flip. I do my own screening..write my own leases… I do my own taxes with tax software which is important to success in real estate investing. I’ve found real estate investing to be very rewarding but hard work and a key path to financial independence along with investing in the stock market.
