Read an Excerpt-
Here’s the news: being financially independent and owning real estate is the new wedding band. And the truth is that owning real estate is going to give you more stability than your potential marriage, not that I’m anti-marriage. Not for a minute. But what I am aiming to re-educate you on is the idea of tying your financial future to someone else’s, when in fact, it’s really a case of putting the cart before the horse. When you are financially stable and have your ducks in a row, you are that much more attractive to a potential partner. “Be the person you want to attract.” In this book we’re going to approach real estate like dating and I’m going to show you how buying a house is not necessarily a lifelong commitment. It might be your first commitment and one of The Ones along the way. So if you are making small commitments, if you are shopping for property like you’re going on Tinder or Bumble dates and one piques your interest, you might end up in an exclusive relationship with it, or maybe an extended fling and you move on after a year or so. If this sounds flippant, bear with me. I’ll walk you through all the steps and tools necessary for you to begin taking charge of your financial future. You will find it’s not only fun, but also extremely liberating.
