    You can purchase houses farily quickly if you have good credit a flexible lender and at least some capital to start with. I personally purchased 4 houses in 3 months. I know it can be done. I have since sold one and rented 2. I have one that remains to be repaired but am currently lacking the nessecary funds or time to get that one finished. I would look into mortgages programs that are called Stated. This means less bothering you for proof of income. Less hassle and paperwork. You might pay slightly more but you can often qualify for more using these programs especially if you have 10-20% down payments. I acutally borrowed the down payments as well from a small private lender. He took out a second mortgage on the houses and gets a higher interest because of it. If you have the money I wouldn't recommend this avenue but if you don't its an option. So with nearily nothing out of my own pocket I've purchased 4 house, renovated 1 completely, done basic repairs at 2 others. Sold 1 and have income from both of the others in less than a year and a half. It's not much income but there's also apprecation the comes into play long term as the houses get paid off and the cashflow increases.

    • I agree that it is very risky to buy investment properties and be highly leveraged. However, you have to start somewhere and more times than not, that means with a loan. If you are serious about purchasing rental properties, then consider at least a 30% down payment.

    • To me you're taking unnecessary risks. Unless you've got the cash (liquid), to get loans to buy properties for rental incomes can be suicidal. What happens if you're unable to lease out the properties? How are you going to repay the loans? How are you going to make good the differences in amount owed should property prices dip? Most banks will need to look into your income capabilities before agreeing to loan you monies. If making money is that simple like you think, there'll be many millionaires in this world!
