Investing in Houses and Hotels with Heather O'Brien
Whitney talks to Heather O'Brien today on the She Buys It Podcast. Heather went from a 9-9 corporate job to starting her own business and flipping 29 houses a MONTH.
Heather fell into real estate investing with the help of her friends. She bought a 3-bedroom townhouse for $450,000. She was single and rented out a room through Craigslist.
She read a book called Loopholes of the Rich and decided to quit her job. She started her business and used her other bedroom as an office, though she was gone a lot for her work. A friend of hers who she had lectured about finances called her up and asked if she could rent the room from her. Heather moved her office to her master bedroom and her friend moved in.
Heather ended up taking a client to the Netherlands. Since she wasn't living at her house, another friend called and asked her if he could rent her master bedroom. She agreed and he moved in.
She moved to Scotland to work with a client, met her husband in New Orleans, and moved to Chicago for her next client. She found out that the houses were so much cheaper to buy and could be rented for a fair amount. In Charlotte, NC, she bought two houses and found a property management company to manage them.
Listen in as Whitney and Heather discuss moving to Puerto Rico, investing in houses and hotels, and designing and implementing your perfect day.
