I’ve been considering investing in real estate, but I’m not really motivated enough or interested enough to move forward. My wife and I put some money in a fund of funds, but with all of the fees, there’s not much money being made. Actually, I don’t think there’s any yet. My wife and I were recently at a vacation destination driving distance from our home and got to thinking… could we get a vacation home here? I got to thinking… could we make money from a vacation home here? I started reading books (listening to books) and listening to podcasts and so I decided to have the queen of short-term rentals on the show to answer our questions. Isn’t it more fun to look at vacation homes than apartment buildings?
