Courtney and Matt Glass have discovered not one, but two niches of the real estate investing world for themselves. After joining the Foreign Service and becoming accidental landlords, Courtney and Matt learned about the FIRE (financial independence retire early) movement and promptly began investing in short term rentals in 2019. Since then, they have expanded their real estate portfolio and begun investing in self-storage facilities. These investments have allowed Matt, as an eligible family member, to have a continuous income stream managing their real estate portfolio as they move from post to post.

In this interview, Courtney and Matt share: 

  • How to identify a short term rental market
  • The value of reliable “boots-on-the-ground” vendor partners
  • Cultivating good relationships with the neighbors next to your rentals
  • Income differences between short-term rental and a home leave vacation home

…and so much more! 

This is part one of a two-part interview with Courtney and Matt. In part two, they discuss their experience in investing in self storage facilities.
