Hey all, I'm aspiring to get into real estate, currently making good money for my age, around 50k gross starting in November. And I'm living off about half my income, is there anyone in the Dallas area that I can talk to that is a professional landlord so I can learn about how to get started? Pitfalls, traps, what to look for, etc.

I am having a hard time setting a rent price for my 3 bd 1 ba in Trenton NJ.Mortgage will be around 1640. I was thinking 1750 but I’m being told that’s too high. I have been looking in the area and places are going for 1800-2000. This is my first time and don’t want to scare people away with the price. I have to mention water is included in the rent.

Wondering thoughts on buying right now. I feel like homes are overpriced and buyers are paying way more than the price on a bidding war. My thoughts are to sell my current home to make a ton of $$ in a sellers market. Rent something for a year or so until it becomes a buyers market and prices drop. Then buy a home for a lot less than I would have paid for it today. Does anyone have thoughts on this?

In process of buying a house, both my surveyor and specialist damp contractor found damp under kitchen tiles (In the grout) & in skirting boards and up one wall. Sellers had work done initially in 2014 on the wall only(with garuntee) & their company has visited and assured there is no damp… what is next best course of action, get another damp specialist to examine independently of other reports? I don’t trust them….. (U.K. Victorian terrace, damp is in the kitchen extension built circa. 15 y/o)
