While writing my blog I go back and forth between the terms “beginner landlord” and “novice landlord” to describe someone that is just starting out in real estate. Beginner landlord doesn’t sound quite right to me but it seems like a much more common word than novice. Eventually I just looked up the true meanings:
Beginner: person unskilled in something.
Novice: person just learning something.
Novice is way better as you are learning new things as we speak just by being on a rental property site. Although this post isn’t all that helpful:), just be happy knowing you’re a novice…one step up!
