    Working At Home

    I moved to southern Unites States a couple of years ago to take care of family. It was the first time in my life I was unsure of what I was going to do next. I had always had a business out of my home. I moved at a time when the markets were changing. I thought, maybe I have to...

    So my first investment was in a duplex.

    I renovated it and rented out both apartments. It was a shell when I got it but the area was perfect for a rental. Now I'm selling it to one of the tenants (no need for a 6% realtor fee!) and I'll be reinvesting the $155,000 gain into a new property. I have picked up a partner...
