Many people feel like a lack of capital and insider information for good deals is keeping them from starting their real estate journey.
But what if you could just use someone else’s money?
And what if you could find deals directly on the MLS?
Jaren, aka Finance Cowboy, is doing just that.
He’s not trying to implement any complex strategies.
Jaren is finding deals on the MLS that need to be rehabbed, forcing appreciation, refinancing to get his money out, and moving on to the next property.
This is commonly referred to as the BRRRR strategy.
Another cool thing about Jaren’s story is that he actually still has his W-2.
Even though he’s a multi-millionaire and could live off rental income, he’s got a great gig and doesn’t plan on leaving.
All too often W-2 employment gets looked down on in the personal finance community.
The reality is that W-2 does come with its benefits (health insurance, 401k, steady pay, etc).
Jaren has taken a career in sales and combined it with an impressive real estate portfolio to design a life that’s perfect for him.
We always love to bring you a realistic story that’s repeatable, and Jaren embodies that perfectly.
