Retire Early with Real Estate

This book gets you excited about real-estate investing; anyone can do it! Will there be sacrifices, yes. Anything worth your time does. I'm sending it to my son-in-law who is discouraged with the 9-5 grind and doesn’t see a way out.

About the Author

Chad Carson is an entrepreneur, writer, and teacher who used real estate investing to reach financial independence before the age of 37. Chad and his business partner currently focus on long-term rental properties and private lending in and around the college town of Clemson, South Carolina with a portfolio of 90+ units. They started the business from scratch in 2003 with a combination of wholesaling, fix-and-flips, and non-conventional financing sources like private lending, seller financing, and lease options—which remains their expertise today. When not investing, you’ll find Chad traveling the world with his family, playing basketball, and helping to build trails in his local community.
