My Rental Real Estate Plan

There are two huge benefits of this blog (actually the two reasons that keep me coming back and I haven't sold the site for good).  The first is that I can think through an issue while I write it out.  Sometimes that just leads to a garbled mess and other times it allows for clarity to present itself.  The second is that I get to read my mindset years and years later.  For example, it is always funny to me when I look back and review my first thoughts on starting an investment club (which is still active by the way), and [...]

Undervalued Dividend Watch List – July 2019

It's going to be interesting to me to look back in a year or two at some of these posts because it feels like the market is either about to shoot up some more with a strong base underneath it which was tested in December 2018, or this could all come crumbling down quickly!
