E4: How Sarah Turned 1 Property Into A Million Dollar Real Estate Portfolio So She Can Retire Early
Do you want to build a real estate portfolio so you can retire early? Tune in to learn how! In this episode of the Seattle Living & Wealth Building podcast, we speak with Sarah Bedwell about building wealth through real estate and how she went from owning one home to multiple investment properties.
Sarah and the team give great advice to new/aspiring real estate investors and share valuable insights on property management, growing your investment portfolio, moving your real estate investments to a new state, and the benefits of investing in homes with accessory dwelling units (ADU).
“What’s crazy is our dreams of when we can retire keep getting younger and younger because our real estate portfolio should put us in a position where it kicks off enough cash for us to live on and then our market nest egg can just keep growing.” - Sarah Bedwell
