I just "diversified" big time.
I closed a while ago but didn't want to mention it here until everything was in the clear.
I just bought my first home, a 3-on-a-lot in Southern California. Got a "good" deal on it, as I purchased it directly from the seller who was referred to me by a patient of mine.
Anyways, it's got a 4 BD/2 BA house in the front, and a 4/2 + 3/2 duplex in the back.
With me living in the 3/2 and the rents from the other two, it costs me $800 to make the payment which includes mortgage, tax, and insurance.
Looking forward to sharing my landlording headaches with you all!
