How to Get Your First (or Next) Rental Property

This chapter is all about getting your chicken: that is, your own egg-laying rental property. As you’ll see in this chapter, whether you are seeking your first rental, your second, or your fifth, there are many different ways to acquire it. You can:

1. Find the golden chickens in your life

2. Do a traditional purchase

3. Think outside the box (or chicken yard!)

4. Put your nest egg to work

5. Put your chicken to work

If this sounds mysterious, don’t worry. I’ll explain each of these five general ways in this chapter. Keep reading! Buying or acquiring your first (or next) rental may not be as hard as you think.

Our only limitations are those we set up in our own minds.
