We had just completed our first renovation - ~$120,000 renovation to be exact - and had turned a vacant eyesore into three homes (it was a multi). All while getting married, having a child and relocated back to Khalil's hometown of Baltimore.
But during the job, we went through the school of hard knocks - identifying the right financial partners, over budget rehab, liens and unforeseen costs...
Over budget? Been there. Bad contractors? Been there, too.
You see, we didn't have a community or mentor when we started...our journey was full of twists, turns, failures and success.
Through that journey, we failed forward and turned, what could have been wasted time and money into invaluable learning lessons.
From building a team, managing contractors, training tenants...we set a foundation for a strong, successful, and profitable portfolio. However, it wasn't enough...we knew that we had to do more.
