R.E.I. links

The real estate investment crowd are typically local in their scope but, they are similar to digital nomads in that they are bootstrapping businesses and similar to the FI crowd in that those purchases for the business (investments) need to have very specific numbers in line to “cash flow” correctly so eventually you can quit your day job. This can be a very fast path to FI but requires a lot of research, excellent credit scores, and patience. Additionally there are a lot of scams and people who call themselves gurus in this space so a lot of my focus is on the primary legit site BiggerPoockets which is no-nonsense advice and help along with a good community of people.

The main concerns with REI folks are getting good deals where the numbers line up, location, interest rates.

There are many ways people make money in REI but here at F.I. Nomad I am very specifically interested in multi-family units and the strategy called BRRRR (Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat).
