Keleisha Carter built a $5K/month passive income stream as a new immigrant with NO green card, money, or ability to get a mortgage. After realizing that her corporate job in Jamaica wouldn’t lead her to where she wanted to be, Keleisha made the adventurous decision to pack up everything she had and move to the US. Overnight, she went from a high-respected marketing role to bussing tables in an entirely different country, but she had bigger plans.
Keleisha’s goal was to support her family financially in any way she could and eventually bring them to the States. After numerous promotions, Keleisha built up a small sum of savings that she would use to buy her first rental property. Or, that was the plan until she realized that without being a US citizen, purchasing a home and getting a mortgage would be much more complicated than she thought.
In today’s show, Keleisha shares her smart strategy to get around the banks and buy properties, EVEN as a new immigrant. Plus, she’ll show how she’s buying rentals today WITHOUT using her own money and why she’ll NEVER try to flip houses again.
