Key Takeaways:

“It took me from 2007 to 2017 – 10 years – before I did anything. I did my real estate stocks, I invested in REITs and things like that because I was all over the place.” – William Morales  

“Take something and just stay with it. Don’t be like me and be all over the place.” – William Morales

 “The first deal [lesson] was not to give up. Be more persistent and follow up. I should’ve done more but I didn’t. I was lucky that the realtor called me back weeks later.” – William Morales  

“I’m not giving rental credits and I’m not getting any myself. No interest. It’s pretty much principal pay down. We pass taxes and insurance to the tenant-buyer, but that money that I get, I put it away; never touched it. Just in case if I need that money, if I need to foreclose or evict, more foreclose on the tenant-buyer, I have their money set aside.” – William Morales  

“Keep track of everything.” – William Morales
