My first rental was a fixer upper that I bought and lived in first. I never intended for it to be a rental when going into it. After fixing it up and living in it for about 4 years I got married and right before we got married my soon to be wife bought a house with the intention of us moving in it together. Then we rented my first house out. It was successful and we saved money from that and wejust Red Nike Roshe Runs bought our second buy and hold house about 2 months ago.

along with a private money lender. It worked. And it made me work at it, save, and make sure the deals were what I wanted. Once you are able to establish a track record, and a comfort, then you can start working more creative deal structures.

I agree with these guys . there are always creative solutions for buying properties. They are cool. Sexy, and they sound awesome. But especially in the beginning when you might not have as much cash in reserve accounts, and experience knowing the market, what the rents will most likely be, etc . the more down, and more importantly, less leveraged . the better.
