48. House Flipping and Holding a Few with Melissa Johnson

48. House Flipping and Holding a Few with Melissa Johnson

Join Mike Cavaggioni and Melissa Johnson on the 48th episode of the Average Joe Finances Podcast, as they discuss how she abandoned the safety walls of a nine-to-five to fully get into the game of real estate investing. Being a real estate investor doesn’t always have to be about closing hundreds of transactions. Instead, for Melissa, the lifestyle it enables for herself and her family holds the real reward far beyond profit she can get from any deal. Today, Melissa shares the prerequisites of finding mentorship, the education-action balance, the importance of market adaptability, and the understanding of exit strategies and when to deploy them.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

● The fear of losing the security blanket of corporate work hinders the transition to real estate.

● In a constantly evolving market, having the ability to adapt and strategize accordingly to the market is critical.

● On Keeping It Simple: There is value in mastering, maximizing, and staying in your market.

● About Glice; The other asset classes and businesses outside of house-flipping that yield potential for investments.

● The importance of knowing when to take action during the phase of self-education.

● And much more!
