If you’ve been listening to this show for a while, you’ve no doubt heard me yammer on about my family’s interest in buy-and-hold real estate. We’re still shooting for our first rental property by December (if our savings can continue to build up)!

To help inspire me and all of you real estate dreamers out there, I’ve invited Joel Larsgaard on the show today.

His passion for real estate has allowed him to design a family life that allows his wife to stay at home with his two young daughters. Furthermore, his investments give him the freedom to have a day job that he loves (even if it doesn’t pay him top dollar).

What are we covering?

Joel and I discuss:

  • Why he was motivated to buy his first property
  • How he purchased it and his philosophy on borrowing
  • When and how his wife made the transition to being a Stay-at-Home Mom (SAHM)

If you’re thinking about buying your first property or exploring how to use passive income to eliminate your need to have two working parents, this episode is for you. I’m still learning quite a bit about real estate. Let’s learn together!

Bryan From Michigan - Bucks and Cents

After realizing he was spending 96% of his income on fixed monthly obligations, Bryan made the choice to ditch his $300,000 home with a well-manicured lawn and downsize to a $33,000 place to become mortgage free, stress-free and take control of his finances.

This major shift in priorities now allows Bryan to save around $30,000 per year in his retirement accounts! $30k!
