    I started Rich Dad coaching in Nov/2009 and made my first deal Feb/2010, took possession May/2010 a house 3bed/1ba up and second unit 2bed/1ba down and single garage. Cash flow is $621/mo and building equity of $650/mo. I have since found a mentor here who is willing to partner with me and I have also begun finding people who are interested in investing in real estate with me. The first one is terrifying, but with support and knowledge each one will get easier. Thank you Robert and Kim

    I bought a sandwich/yogurt shop in Siesta Key, Florida. I opened the shop to create a job for myself, with hopes to create more jobs. It made a small monthly income for me. I had to close because of the BP oil spill. However, it was successful in many ways! Now, I will be investing in some rentals in Nashville, TN. I have rental property in Tennessee and Missouri already.

  • Katina Rhooms
    Fort Worth, Texas, USA
    I started with two investment properties. When we moved to Texas, instead of selling the home we'd been living in, we decided to keep it as an investment because it had a lot of potential. The second house was a home my mom had and she passed away so I took over the home and also looked at it as an investment home.
     
    We rented out both houses and it was okay for a year and after that it went down the hill. On the first house the mortgage payment increased and the renter could not afford it and I was not able to increase her rent to the amount of the mortgage due to rental amount in that area was a lot less. The second home the tenant did not make payments for 6 months and I was too far behind and we could not pay our Texas mortgage and the mortgage in California.
     
    I have learned a lot about renting. I am still learning and will now take it more slowly.
  • Vicki Raftree

  • Renee Miller
    .
    I bought a small 3 bedroom house at auction, bidding against 3 men. I knew I wanted this house to start my real estate investing. This house was to be flipped to give me cash for a down payment on a rental. I bought the house for $66,000 and sold it for $103,000. It took 3 months to rehab this home and I sold it after 13 days of putting a sign by the road saying House for Sale by Owner. I spent $17,000 on the rehab so in all we had $83,000 in this home and sold it for $103,000 which left $20,000. I used our home equity for the money to pay for the home and used credit cards for the materials for the rehab. I paid everything off and had money left over. Taxes took a good bite of the cash but still all in all it was a great adventure and learning experience. This experience gave me the courage to open my 3 retail gift shops. I love my gift shops but all I want and all I think about everyday is rentals and buildings and old houses and laundry mats. I think I am obsessed with real estate. I do have a lot to learn. That's my story.
  • Paula
    Central Florida
    I taught foreign languages for 11 years and saved 60% of my paycheck for the last five. Didn't plan to study an MA because my gut feeling was telling me that teaching was not going to take me anywhere (basically not a good ROI). On 2009 my gut feeling became a reality when the venture capital group who bought the school let me go. With my savings I purchased a 1-1 Condo, cash! That first asset has equity and cash flows $225/month. I am currently working on a deal for a 1031 exchange that might bring 2 SF homes to my asset column. I REALLY love what I'm doing & relating myself with like-minded people!!!!... never felt better!

  • Sonja Skage
    Alberta, Canada
    My first deal was a 3 bedroom house with a basement suite and garage in Alberta, Canada.  The cashflow was $400 per month.  I didn’t know anything but asked the seller if he was interested in vendor financing for part of the downpayment.  He said yes and my downpayment ended up being 15% instead of 25% of $178,000.  Today five years later the house is worth approx. $300,000 and the cashflow is approx. $600 per month.  An investor partner put up all the money we needed and I agreed to do all the work with the property and the tenants.  Any woman can do this!!

  • Samara Honda
    Sao Paulo, SP, Brazil
    Thanks to the book "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", we (my husband  and I) bought an apartment for rent instead of a new car. The location of this  apartment is near the University of Sao Paulo, so it is very  convenient for students who wants to rent an apartment and can't  afford or don't want buy one. This specific property is very interesting  one, because the building don't have elevator what is not attractive for aged  people, but for students that are looking for low condo expenses is a good  deal.

  • Nokwazi
    Johannesburg South Africa
    I already have a two bedroomed, 1 bath flat that I was hoping to have as an investment when my husband and I got married. The reason I'm saying I was hoping to have my flat as an investment is because, while I am renting it out to a young family, they are not paying rent. The rent which is already R2000 less than what I pay at the end of every month as the bond/mortgage and rates. I suppose I got a bad deal there. However I must point out, while I have somehow not succeeded with this first investment I am pushing ahead, looking at another property, this time I'm wiser looking for something that will put something in my pocket, instead of taking out. Thanks Kim I absolutely live by your book "Rich Woman". I dream of moving into the supermarket franchise industry when the right time comes and if I play my cards right, the cash will be flowing in properly, despite the current economic conditions.

    Paid cash - this was a foreclosure. House is near the university my son is attending and he is staying in the house instead of dorms (savings of $8000K per year!) Will get monthly rent from his two roomates. The boys will have reduced rent in exchange for working on the house. Repairs are mostly cosmetic. Will probably put about $10,000 total in the house (new windows and minor repairs). Cash flow will be about $150 per month plus the savings from not paying for the dorm! Hope to aquire another property in the spring of 2010.

  • Emily 
    Los Angeles, CA, USA
    I am so excited to share!  The day after I received this email I bought my first vending machine!  My husband and I had been researching investments for around 6 months and after we did the numbers we expect to be making 100% ROI in our first year, maybe even better!  I have a low interest credit card (6%) and we charged it to that (OPM).  We decided if it does go well, in about two months we will put together a business plan and buy 10 more with a bank loan.  I cannot tell you how liberating this feels to have finally acted upon all that I have been learning about being financially free!  What is better, my husband is on board!  It is so great to feel the support of a wonderful husband and partner!  Thanks for letting me be a part of this.
  • Jenny Leather

We turned a $125,000 lot with an ocean view into a $650,000 lot with a $1,000,000 home on the lot.The 2 bedroom condo was purchased for $106,000 and we sold it for $230,000. My small investment has consistantly averaged a $600 cashflow as a vacation rental.

  • Gloria Taft
    Shepherdsville, KY
    I was a single mom. My parents purchased a house, and I was buying it from them. When I got married, the house was too small. I rented it to some friends and that turned into a land contract. I knew I could do that again. I went house hunting. Found a ugly, unkept, unmowed and cheap house. I purchased it for $15,000.00. Hired my kids, parents and sister to help mow, clean and paint. My husband and a friend put up gutters and downspouts and a new porch roof (2 8' fiberglass panels). With lots of elbow grease and prayer we completed the project. Refinanced the house 3 weeks later for $45,000.00. After paying all bills for reconstruction I made about $20,000. I reinvested it and now have 6 properties.

Thank you Kim and Robert, you truly have given us another perspective on life outside the RAT RACE
