Here is the preface to his website that you will want to follow his blog:[…] This dry loss shook me and highlighted my ignorance on all matters of money. To make up for this glaring lack of knowledge, I began to read everything I could find about personal finance. At 19 I had to find out how to invest better! TO BECOME THE BEST, YOU MUST SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THE BEST. I would like to share with you my experiences, ideas and readings on best practices in personal finance, real estate and securities.
Site operated by Steve Forget, a 41-year-old real estate investor who has been accumulating doors for 9 years. In 9 years of real estate investment, he has accumulated 65 units, 56 residential and 9 commercial. The articles on the blog are not very frequent but he is very active on Facebook, where more than 17,000 people follow him.
In 9 years of real estate investment, I have returned to 65 units, 56 residential and 9 commercial. We also manage 35 additional accommodations for clients. Why do I find real estate interesting? I think it is a fairly safe and “simple” way to achieve some financial independence. For me financial independence is to be able, on a not-so-distant day, to allow me to take a few months off a year to travel, because traveling is definitely my no.1 passion in life.
