Founder & CEO of Innovative Property Solutions
Welcome and thanks for stopping by my blog. My name is Sharon Vornholt. I have been investing in real estate since 1998, and I am passionate about real estate investing!
I have two grown daughters. My oldest daughter has worked with me in my businesses since graduating from college and my youngest daughter is a professional property manager. I also have a granddaughter that so far, does not share my passion for “ugly” houses. Since she is only 10, I’m not too worried about that (yet).
In 2008 I took the huge step of becoming a full time real estate investor after owning and operating a successful home inspection company for 17 years. It was a scary step, but one that I have never regretted! Over the years I have done some rehabs, bought a few rental properties, and finally found my true love which is wholesaling.
Wholesaling is a business that anyone can learn. If you are just starting out you don’t need cash or good credit to get started. I believe that everyone should learn to wholesale properties regardless of your primary real estate investing strategy.
If you are a buy and hold investor, you can use these “chunks of cash” to pay down your properties. If you are a person that likes to fix up a property and then sell it, it is nice to have a little nest egg for emergencies that tend to crop up during the rehab process.
Since I first began investing in real estate, I have attended a number of “boot camps”, conferences, seminars etc. I continue to devote time and money to my real estate education as I believe it is vital to your success. I would encourage you to invest in yourself and your real estate education. It is truly the path to success!
I am striving to lead a joyful, stress free life on my way to building a business that will provide not only financial freedom for me, but the personal freedom that comes from escaping a 9 to 5 job. I would love to share with you the joys and also the pitfalls along the way to building this business that I love. As I am an avid reader, I will also be posting book reviews from time to time.
Thank you for your continued support and I look forward to your comments and suggestions.
