Carson Olinger journey with real estate investing began after the birth of his children, when he realized that his current job was keeping him from being home with his family like he wanted to be. In 2017, he owned a packaging company that unfortunately went under due to some unforeseen circumstances. This led him and his wife to build an investing business so that they could leave the 9-5 world behind them and finally start living the life they had wanted.
In July 2017, he started his own Real Estate Business – Capital City Equity Group. He had started looking at deals in January and actually closed on his first deal already by February. However, he saw this as a “side gig,” and the overall business plan was not realized. Once he started using Lead Propeller and had leads regularly coming in, it was then a matter of closing deals and figuring out what to do with them. Carson was able to quickly learn all the different acquisition strategies as he had some friends that opened him up to some creative concepts and he was able to start closing on deals.
Carson soon realized that he had not just created a business, but a job. If he wanted to find true freedom, he knew he was going to have to diversify. He began pickup up rental properties to create a more passive income, and within six months of really focusing in on real estate, he sold 10 homes via wholesaling and pocketed one long-term rental. He didn’t have any of his own money in any of the deals, other than marketing dollars and website management fees (which he says are totally worth it by the way!). By using creative acquisition methods and having multiple exit strategies, he was able to gain a lot of traction and could begin to see the broader picture. By spending time with others and listening to their needs and motivations, he could easily discern what solutions to provide them. He now says that he’s having fun doing this, and enjoys getting to help others at the same time.
