I received news from my real estate agent yesterday that we officially closed escrow on my second rental property last night. It feels a bit surreal, but I am really excited about diversifying my portfolio with more real estate. Here are the details on rental property #2.

It took me years to save up my first $10,000. I still remember the day my bank account had more than $10,000 in it. That first $10,000 was hard, but the next $10,000 I saved became easier, and the next $10,000 after that, I didn’t even have to think about. The simple but powerful way… ...
