    From $165K in Debt to Five Single-Family Rentals with Mindy Templeton

    From $165K in Debt to Five Single-Family Rentals with Mindy Templeton

    Mindy Templeton is a Kansas City-based real estate investor who was, at one time, $165,000 in debt. A mindset shift a few years ago led her and her husband to aggressively pay down that debt and start buying single-family rentals in the Kansas City area.
    She and her husband have full-time jobs and are parents to two young children. She started Investinginyourwealth.com about two years ago as a way to track her journey to paying off that $165k of debt, and now that they are debt-free, she is working on building wealth through diversification. She is a firm believer in having multiple strategies for investing, so real estate is not her only strategy, but definitely her primary focus.
    In this episode, we talk to Mindy about the mindset shift she went through that led them to adjust their spending habits, the creative way she acquired the funds for the downpayment on their first rental property, and why she doesn’t want to build a huge portfolio of rental properties.

    Sara Witz and Anthony Gair are a soon-to-be husband and wife real estate investing team focused on wholesaling, flipping, and the BRRRR strategy. Two oil and gas employees from Houston, Texas who decided to take advantage of the extra time they had after their wedding was delayed by the Covid pandemic.
