The Unexpected Way To Get An Easy Start In Real Estate with Kevin Clayson and Steve Earl


Many of our listeners share this one big concern about investing in real estate. 


We recently got some interesting feedback, and what people commonly see as the biggest challenge of investing is not having enough money to purchase a property. 


Now, I get that most Americans don’t just have $50k lying around in their bank account doing nothing. But if that’s the only reason you still haven’t started replacing your income with real estate, I’ve got to tell you – it’s not good enough.


Kevin Clayson Quote on Your Path to Owning Real Estate


That doesn’t mean everyone will be able to jump in the game right away and start buying properties right off the bat.


You may need to do a little bit of saving, or maybe you need to work on your credit score… 


But there’s ALWAYS something you can do to get on the right path that will guide you to becoming a property owner.


This week, Steve and I will talk about our simple strategy for getting in the game that works even if you don’t have a lot of money saved up. 


We’re going to explore different variations of this easy, straightforward, yet practical approach while underlining the sacrifices that come with each scenario.


After this episode, you should feel a lot closer to the possibility of owning multiple properties and income replacement through real estate.
