Will Hamm I closed on my first house when I was 26 years old and bought a total of 3 by the time I was 28.

I've owned a number of properties over the years, individually and with various partners, many of which were income-producing investment properties.

In my opinion, real estate is the best investment.

Someone asked that question a while back and I was corrected by a friend of mine - who reminded me that I was 18!

I totally forgot that I hated the crazy noise in the dorms - I couldn't study! I used almost every bit of my savings to buy a home but, I got my studying done!

I was 31 when I closed on my first purchase. NYC is expensive, and I had NYU debt to pay down first. Smartest decision I ever made- despite friends and family thinking I was crazy to buy where I did. The apartment is now worth nearly twice what I bought it for 13 years ago.

I was 28 years old had been married for 2 years and made a really bad decision with the first purchase. That's what happens when you don't have a reliable real estate agent giving you advice. My second home 10 years later was much better, because I understood how much location means to resale value.
