I normally love Michelle Singletary and the advice she offers. But as a Realtor, at first her column made me mad.
And then it made me think.
I am also a real estate investor. What she didn’t say in her column was that if you’re a first-time home buyer or someone looking to downsize, what you should do is buy a duplex instead.

If you’ve thought about buying a house, but are discouraged, give me a call. I’d be happy to discuss all the many advantages of investment property ownership, and how you can benefit from them without sacrificing your lifestyle or your life savings!
